Musical Monday/Weekend Update...

Pennyroyal Tea by Nirvana

Yea, Pennyroyal Tea.  It was a Nirvana themed weekend thanks to my cousin, GD.  His birthday party on Friday night was Nirvana themed - I'm really glad that I went with my gut & got him the Nirvana record instead of The Beatles one.  I love fitting into themes.  Ha!

I cannot believe that he's fifteen already.  Where the heck has the time gone?!  This is the same child that used to climb on my parents' coffee table to lay down.  Ha, ha!  He's a good kid & pretty dang talented - he plays the trumpet, drums & guitar.  He's my NOM - Number One Man.  :)

Saturday morning, Paul & I left for LaCrosse to do some boating & then meet up with my cousin, Scott, that night.  The boating was something.  We were boating on the Black River/Mississippi & it was wavy!  It was horrible!  My body still hurts from all the bouncing around.  At one point, a wave went completely over the boat & soaked us.  At that point, we decided to turn it around.  But then we just got to hang out for about an hour & a half as a barge went through the lock.

Once we got to the hotel, we got the river smell off of us - I had to get in the water twice to pee.  Yes, I am not ashamed, I peed in the river!  Tee hee!  But we got all cleaned up, my cousin met us & we went out to dinner at this nice place called Piggy's (the name still makes me giggle) & then we went out to the 70's themed martini bar.  It was amazing!  We had some good Nerd Talk & I enjoyed one too many martinis - one Snickers & two Chocolate Monkeys.  Yum!

Sunday, we drove to Albert Lea to meet to pick up Sunshine.  The ride back home was horrible, we were all so tired & just wanted to be home.  Plus, after listening to the Packers not only lose the game but Jordy Nelson for the season, it was a tough four hour ride home.  But all in all, a pretty good weekend.  I enjoyed immensely!  :)

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…
