Musical Monday...

My Demons by Starset

After attending Northern Invasion this weekend, I found a new favorite band - Starset.  They were probably my favorite & they were the second band we watched.  They were really good & my friend, Krista, & I liked the lead singer & tried to let him know that we would be okay if he decided to remove his shirt cuz he looked pretty warm working it on stage.  Ha!

My weekend was VERY busy.  As soon as I got home on Friday, I changed & we were on the road to drop Sunshine off with her mother for the weekend.  We went out to eat, picked up Paul's parents' Impala for our travels to Somerset, got some goods from the store, Paul then dropped me off at home so I could get ready for bed while he went to visit a friend for a little bit.

Saturday, was Northern Invasion.  I'll do a blog dedicated to just that later but I will tell you this:  Denny's made it my birthday & Five Finger Death Punch almost made it my "death-day".  Intrigued?  You'll just have to wait for the details.

Yesterday was Mother's Day.  I ended up sleeping until about 12:30 as we didn't get home & in bed until about 3:00 in the a.m.  I got up, started a load of laundry, went to my mama's to drop off part of her gift (a hibiscus plant), then we went to my grandparents' to bring my grandma her gifts (gerber daisy plant) & to visit for a bit.  Then I dropped my mom off at home & went to bring my mother-in-law her gift (another plant - don't know the flowers though).  At this time, it was almost 6:00 & I had not received Mother's Day wishes from my husband or stepdaughters.  I was getting rather upset.  

When I got home though, Sunshine gave me a gift:

Homemade body scrub

I had to use it right away & it worked rather well!  :)  She also posted these nice things about me on Facebook & Instagram:

Do you see that - best stepmother.  Yea, that's me!  Ha!  So, like usual, Sunshine made me feel appreciated.  Still nothing from Trouble & Paul just bought me a banana cream pie from Kwik Trip (I'm still pretty ticked about that, by the way).  I went about my typical Sunday night activities - laundry, etc.  I didn't get anything from Trouble until about 2:00 this morning:

& yes, that is Ariel on my background.  Tee hee!  So, I was happier when I woke up to see that from Trouble this morning cuz I was really upset that she didn't say anything to me at all.  I didn't need anything more than a "Happy Mother's Day" from her & I got that.

So yea, that was my weekend.  :)


  1. Awww... I love that she was showing you off on social media! :) And homemade scrub... yes, please!!!

    1. & you know what, if she only would have done one of those things, I would have been happy but she did all of that. She's a great kid. :)

Happy 34th Birthday To Me...

Since tomorrow is my 34th birthday, I decided in celebration of it, I should list 34 facts about me.  So, here we go:

1.  For lunch today, I had a Big Grab bag of Funyuns, a bottle of Dew & some mini-Snickers.  I'm all about my health today, it seems.  :|

2.  I bought my first pair of leggings today since I was about 12.  They are for working out & they were on clearance.

3.  Speaking of leggings, I so badly want the tattoo version of them.  You know how the complete coverage of the arm in tattoos is called a "sleeve", I started calling the complete coverage of the leg in tattoos a "legging".  Ha!

4.  I've seen every episode of Friends at least ten times.  Paul will turn it on when it's on TV & test me on what episode it is...I'm rarely wrong.

5.  I really, really, really want to go back to Vegas real soon.  I'm almost half-tempted to ask Paul if we can go there for our second anniversary.

6.  I pretty much have tiny panic attacks on a da…

Weekending/Musical Monday…

I've decided to start linking up with Biana on reporting on activities of the weekend.  If you would like to join, hit her up!
So, on to my weekend...
Friday - the husband & I went out to dinner and for drinks with our friends, Ben & Christa.  & then headed back to our house for some games.  A nice quiet evening with some great people.
Saturday - my cousin, Jennifer, & I decided to take a last minute trip to Appleton for some shopping & such.  We had her youngest with her & he was perfect!  We had so much fun & while at Scheels, I educated him about Bucky Badger because he kept going over to the Wisconsin Badger stuff & by the end of our trip in that store, he was calling out "Bucky!"  My heart could not be prouder.

When we got back into town, Paul & I went out for a couple glasses of wine & then headed back home to relax & watch Baby Driver.  You can read my review here.

Sunday - typical Sunday, spent the morning hanging out in be…
