Musical Monday...

Jenny by Nothing More

Over the weekend, my aunt introduced me to this song but first told me the story behind it which you can read here.  Powerful, powerful stuff.  Wow.

Anywho, on to my weekend, it was a crazy one.

Friday, right after work, I went out to dinner with my friend, Ashlee, & then we had some time to waste before going to see Self/Less so we did some hiking.

There is a hiking trail that I've never been on & it goes around a pond & is basically on swamp land & through woods.  Very pretty but very buggy, next time, gonna load up on the bug spray!  Ha!  Then we went to the movie which was decent and my review of it can be found here.

Then when I left I noticed that I had some text messages from my cousin, Jennifer, she was inviting me to join them for the Brett Favre induction ceremony in Green Bay the next day.  Now, I used to LOVE Brett Favre, I was going to marry him, he was my world back in the day...until he decided to toy with my heart.  He was going to retire a Packer & that was all us Packer fans ever wanted but then, he decided to go to the New York Jets.  Okay, not happy but I could handle that.  However, he wasn't done, he decided to stab us Packer fans in the hearts & go play for the Minnesota Vikings.  Really?  That was it, I was done.  I wanted to sell all my Brett stuff or burn it or whatever.  I was heartbroken & the very mention of his name put me into a rage.  However, I like the thought of hanging out with my aunt, uncle, cousin, her fiancee & her son so I accepted the invite.

We left for Green Bay at about 11:15.  Car rides with these folks are always a good time - we sang some Journey, Britney, Five Finger Death Punch, etc.  It was great.  We had lunch at Titletown Brewery which I would LOVE to go to again when it's not so busy but I got a BLT & it was delish, I wolfed it down rather quickly.  Ha!

Then off to one of the best places on Earth - Lambeau Field.  It was hotter than Hell so we found ourselves some shade & hung out until the gates opened.  Of course, there were TONS & TONS of people there to watch this thing.  I didn't know what to expect but the stadium was packed with people wearing their Packer gear & some still sporting their Favre jerseys.

When Favre finally came onto the field, he walked out to a five minute standing ovation.  No jokes whatsoever.  He was on the field for about a half hour doing an interview & such.  Here is a video of his thank you to the Packer fans:

During all this, Aaron (Jennifer's fiancee) hadn't been feeling well.  We didn't know what we were dealing with but we knew it wasn't good - he was this greenish gray color, he was light-headed & had the cold sweats (it was about 98*).  So, my aunt, uncle & I ran to retrieve the car, drove back to the stadium & picked him, my cousin & her son up.  We ended up taking him to the ER in Green Bay.  Jennifer went back with him but the rest of us sat out in the waiting room.  At midnight, Jennifer came out & said they had to stay as they would be taking his gall bladder out the next morning.  So, we loaded her up with some stuff & headed back home.  It was weird to leave them there but we knew that Aaron was in good hands.  But here are some pics from the day:

I'm happy to report that all went well with Aaron.  The surgery went as planned & he was on his way home at about 4:00 yesterday afternoon.  Oh, & did I mention that yesterday was his birthday.  What a way to spend your birthday, huh?  Now, it's a story to tell!  Ha!

Then yesterday, it was just Sunshine & I.  So, we cleaned out her dressers & closet, had lunch at Applebee's, did a little shopping, took things to Goodwill, did chores around the house & watched some Grimm.  Yes, Sunshine now likes Grimm & asked to watch it with me last night.  Ha, ha!

So, besides the trip to the ER, a pretty good weekend.  :)


  1. Trips to the ER are never fun. I'm glad it didn't turn into anything serious. And very glad Aaron's surgery went well!

    1. Thanks. We tried to make the best of it especially with a three year old but he ended up zonking out after being there for about a half hour.

  2. Oh gosh! I hope your friend Aaron is okay, that's scary. Take me hiking! Everything in South Jersey / the beach is flat so we have to drive so far to hike and my friends just are not interested in hiking. I've been researching some family friendly hiking places for me to take Lyla alone even but I'm kind of scared it'll be a flop!

    1. He's fine. He said the only pain he had on Sunday afternoon was from the surgery itself but no more stomach ache. :)

      I don't hike as much as I should, there are some beautiful places to hike here in Wisconsin & I need to take more advantage of that.

  3. I'm from Minnesota but have always been a die hard Packers fan and part of me will never forgive Favre for playing for the Vikings. Any other team and we maybe could of still been bffs, but the Vikings were like a stab in the heart.

    1. Well, girl, you are now a friend of mine. Us Packer fans gotta stick together! Ha!

      Yea, my heart is still broken from Brett going to MN but the void has been filled by the one, the only Aaron Rodgers. Who, really, I thought was amazing when he came in for Brett in Dallas when Brett hurt his shoulder. I was an Aaron fan ever since.

      GO PACK GO!!!! :)

  4. Poor Aaron!! :( I'm glad he is recovering well though- what a birthday?!! I love your pics though- I'd love to see a game there one day. Well, I want to see a game in EVERY stadium hehe :)

    1. Lambeau is pretty dang amazing. Before it got all commercialized, I made my first trip there for Return to Titletown & when I saw it for the first time, I cried. I'm not even kidding you. I don't get that same feeling but it's still a place to visit especially as a sports fan. Also, if you're in the area, you should go to the Badgers stadium as well - I actually prefer a game at Camp Randall over Lambeau...but that's just me. :)

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that tonight after work, I'm gonna pick up some din-din for my sister & I & then we're gonna play some old school Nintendo games on her projection screen.  Awhoo hoo!  I am so happy that my sister is back home!  :)

I am thankful...for Stan Lee.  I know that I've probably said it before but this guy is pretty dang amazing with the Marvel characters & stories that came to be from his mind.  I just wish that I had that kind of brain to think up all the crazy things/beings he does.

I am thankful...that in four weeks, I'll be in Las Vegas.  Just me & my hubby hopefully catching a few shows, winning some dough & having some good grub.  We'll for sure be seeing Love by Cirque & then I wanna get him tickets to either Cris Angel or Penn & Teller as a birthday gift.  I tried talking him into seeing Britney but he hasn't caved yet, I'm hoping that he will cuz if I get to see Britney, it would be amazing cuz I love her!

I am tha…

$10 at Target...

Yea, I was able to get to Target & get some goodies so I could link-up with one of my favorites!  Awhoo hoo!  If you wanna join in, visit Liz or any of the other hosts to linkup.  :)

Here is my haul:

Sunshine complained the other night that she needed more socks so I picked her up some.

I had to hit the clearance Easter stuff & picked these up for Paul.  He loves sour stuff so thought they would be right up his alley.  :)

I picked these up for myself.  I love them SO much & since I didn't make myself an Easter bag I figured I would grab these when they were 50% off.  Yum!

My grand total:  $10.96 Almost a dollar over but that's okay, I got some needed things.
