I'm loving...that the hubby & I are going down to Chicago for a long weekend to celebrate two years' of wedded bliss...well, I don't know about that part, we do have teenage girls that live under our roof who cause trouble.  Sigh.  We both need some time away even though we were just in Dallas about a month ago.  Ha!

I'm loving...that tonight, I'm going out with my bestie, Kim, for dinner & maybe some adult beverages.  I'm really looking forward to some sweet chili wings & a cheese quesadilla.  Yes, no jokes, that will be my supper & then some glasses of Moscato...I may have to walk home.  Ha, ha!

I'm loving...that Paul & I will be in Chicago cheering on our Packers at some bar there.  I would be in fear of some Bears fans but our argument will be sweet & short:  5 - 0.  That's it.  GO PACK GO!

I'm loving...that my cousin's wedding is next weekend for many reasons:

  1.  I get to be pretty in my bridesmaid dress with my hair & makeup all done;
  2.  I get to dance & have fun with some of the most important people in my life; and
  3.  I get to get my stupid acrylic nails taken off right afterwards.  Awhoo hoo!


  1. Have fun in Chicago! I'm hoping to visit there next year! Good time to be there with the Cubs in the playoffs! :)

    1. Right, the energy level will be high there, I think. :)

  2. Hope you two lovebirds have an awesome time on your weekend getaway!

    1. Thank you! It was a good time...part of me wants to still be down there, that's for sure.

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.
