Thankful Thursday...

Hey you!  Yea, you, what are you thankful for today?  Here are a few things that I'm thankful for:

  1.  Hair appointments.  I deserve a little pampering so I'm going to get my hair did tonight - some fun & noticeable high/lowlights & a trim.  Awhoo hoo!

  2.  Jimmy John's.  I know that I've been thankful for them recently but I'm still thankful & even more so because I get to have that for my din-din tonight before ALL my running around.  Yippee!

  3.  Being hated upon.  Weird thing to be thankful for, huh?  Well, I figure that if your kids do not hate you for most of their teenage years, you're not doing your job as a parent.  I am now the Hitler to Paul's Nazi & you know what, whatever.  I take that as I'm the frickin' boss & that I should not be messed with as I will not tolerate it.  Trouble got a little reminder of that - she acted out on Monday & yesterday resulting in my taking away ALL her data & her Netflix - two things she loves the most.  Don't mess with Mother Mandie, she'll get ya!  Tee hee!


  1. Great things to be thankful for!!!

  2. I have no idea what Jimmy John's is but I sure do love hair appointments! Haha

    1. Jimmy John's is a sub shop. It's pretty delish & us folks in my town get excited when new things come into town cuz it's happens so rarely. Tee hee!

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…

Friday Five...

Why, hello, everyone.  'Tis that day of the week when we all pick five things to talk about.  So, if you would like to linkup you can head on over toApril to do so.  :) My five this week are things I am most excited about in the new Fantastic Beasts movie.  In case you didn't see the preview of it, here is one & this is one that I did not see until today:


  1.  Seeing more of Johnny Depp as Grindelwald.  Now, if you are new to these parts, I have been "forced" to be a fan of Johnny Depp as my mom is in love with him & told me that he's my dad.  Ha!  So, whenever I see him I always say to myself "hi, Dad!"  Ha!  Plus, it helps that he's an amazing actor.  I am so excited to see how he plays this character, I know that it will be fantastic!

  2.  Jacob Kowalski.  Oh my gosh, do I love this character!  Dan Fogler plays him so wonderfully.  He is just so likable &a…
