Blog-tember Challenge #9...

Today's prompt:  Write a letter to sixteen year old you.  Any advice or funny stories?

I never liked doing letters to a younger me cuz I wouldn't want to tell myself to do or be anything different.  I feel that everything that I experienced & did back then helped shape me into the person I am today - the good & the bad.  So, I guess I would just tell my sixteen year old self to go with her gut & do what she feels is right.

I know, kinda boring but I wasn't a bad kid.  There really isn't anything I would take back cuz there was just nothing that was that bad, you know?  Yea, I was one of those kids.  I hung out with the kids who's parents were lawyers & doctors & judges, so decent kids.

I will tell one story that makes me giggle to this day though.  We went though a phase where we "ganked" things.  Some stupid street signs or whatever.  Well, we had a big plan that we were gonna get one of those flashing lights from a barricade.  We sat & planned this thing & thought of scenarios, all of this (if we would have put this much thought into our school work, we would have all been on highest honors - ha!).  Well, one scenario we didn't think of:  we didn't have the right tools to get the light off of the barricade so we just threw the whole dang thing in the trunk & we couldn't close the trunk so we drove around a little bit with it flashing in the trunk.  We eventually ended up just leaving it somewhere as we couldn't much be bringing an entire barricade to one of our homes.  Tee hee!


  1. Hahahaha you store an entire barricade. I would tell 16 year old me to be much nicer to my mom!

    1. Yup, the whole damn thing...we thought we had a master plan...we did not. Tee hee!

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 to Karli (I like the new button, by the way!) &/or Liz.

My five this week are five Christmas gifts that I got for Sunshine.
  1.  Adidas pants.  I had more thing to get her & she mentioned at her gymnastics meeting that she wanted a pair of these.  I got online & picked her up a pair ending my Christmas shopping for her.
  2.  Paper lanterns.  They were on sale one day at The Walmart & I couldn't resist getting them for her to hang in her bedroom.

  3.  A wax warmer & melts.  She has her bedroom upstairs & we don't allow candle burning up there were it cannot be watched.  Plus, with the mess a teenage girl makes, something is bound to catch on fire.  Anywho, so I got her this warmer and some melts that she can use to make things smell all nice & stuff.  :)

  4.  A Pink sweatshirt & matching socks.  I …

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that I got my Christmas cards all out last Friday & that people have already been receiving them!  Now, it's my turn to receive some cards to hang on the front door.  I love receiving them & looking at all the smiling faces & reading the fun "family letters" especially from my aunt, Nellie.  :)

I am thankful...that I got to have a nice evening with my mom & her boyfriend last night.  I had to drop off Sunshine's Christmas gift & pick up her pet carrier so I could take all three cats to the vet this morning so she fed me one of my favorite meals that I never get to have at home - tuna casserole.  & then when I got home, Jill was on her way over so I chatted with her, helped Sunshine with her outfit for tomorrow (she has to dress up as the gymnastics team has a meet this weekend) & then to bed to read & such.

I am thankful...for this coloring book that I got Trouble as part of her Christmas present.  I looked through it yes…

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 to Karli &/or April.

My five this week is ways to stay warm when it's frickin' freezin' in Central Wisconsin.

  1.  Drinking warm beverages - coffee, cocoa, tea.  Add some Rum Chata or Baileys for a lil extra warmth.  

  2.  Set yourself on fire...or sit really close to a fire &/or space heater.

  3.  Take a long hot bath maybe enjoy your warm beverage as like Olaf is doing.

  4.  Bundle up like Randy does in A Christmas Story - "I can't put my arms down!"

  5.  Just stay in your nice warm bed snuggled up with your cats & a good book or Netflix.
