I'm loving...that I am in the process of forming plans to hang out with my cousin, Alysha.  She's been having a tough go of things lately & it drives me crazy that she is & most likely due to a boy.  She is one of the most beautiful people I know - inside & out.  So, I'm excited that her & I will just get together & just talk about things.  She needs some Mandie Advice.  :)

Alysha & I at my bachelorette party.

I'm loving...that Trouble thinks that Paul & I are the worst people in the world because we told her that she's not allowed to quit the job she has now until she has another one lined up.  We are just so horrible because we expect that our SEVENTEEN year old needs to have some responsibilities & that a job is one of those.  Other than that, she currently has no other responsibilities until school starts. Yes, we are mean.

I'm loving...that I'm almost done with the book I'm reading - LA Candy by Lauren Conrad.  I love Lauren & all but the book just isn't good & I'm not taking the time I should/need to to read it & get it done.  Sorry Lauren.  However, I still love Laguna Beach & The Hills & I have the urge to binge watch them...maybe when I have my "alone time" next week.  :)


  1. Happy Wednesday! I hope you and your cousin have fun.
    WOW - you are mean!!! ;) Let me pass you the "Worst Mom" crown & sash, I've been wearing it most of the past week, it's your turn.
    Enjoy the rest of your week.

    1. I know, I'm the worst person EVER! You get a crown & a sash?! I'm gonna make myself a sign that says: "the ruin of lives & fun". Tee hee!

  2. The Hilary Duff GIF made me laugh, that is awesome! :) Glad you are making time for your cousin, I know she will appreciate it!! Have a great day!! :)

    1. I know, when I saw that, I just knew that I had to use it!

      My cousin is a pretty special lil lady & I don't like that someone has her feeling down, she's too pretty to be sad. :)

  3. Oh wow, I remember those days. I was the meanest mom in the entire universe from the years that my daughters were 14 through 18.The teen years were the absolute worse. If it helps any, things do get better. My girls are 21 and 22 now and we are closer than we've ever been. Hey, have fun with your cousin and enjoy your weekend. I'm glad I found your blog today, I really enjoyed the visit... :)

    1. Well, I'm glad that you enjoyed your visit! :)

      I keep telling myself that things will eventually get better with her, she just really needs a reality check. Sigh.

      Thanks for visiting! Please come again! :)

  4. I read that book too! It was okay, totally different than what I usually read so it was an alright break. It basically read like an autobiography with different names.

    1. It really did & similar situations. Yea, it just didn't keep my attention like some of the other books I've read lately. So, I have moved on...well, I finished it last night but not real sure I'll read anymore in the series. :\

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…

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…
