Musical Monday/Weekend Update...

Come Closer by The Beatles & NIN

For some reason, I've really been in a NIN stage lately.  I heard Head Like a Hole the other day on the radio & it's been NIN every since.  I love this mashup SO much.  I typically don't like many mashups but the first time I heard this one, I was sold.  So much fun!

As for the weekend, it was a good one.  One I'd like to go back & redo.  It started off with dropping the girls off with their mother in Appleton (Trouble just joined them for supper & then stayed with some friends over there for the weekend).  Paul & I then dropped off our stuff at the hotel, got ourselves some Panera Bread, got the Uber & headed to the martini bar.  I ended up having three martinis - my usual limit is two.

Saturday, we headed to Shawano to spend the day with my cousins - we toured the Sun Drop factory, had lunch at a local joint, went to the Packer Hall of Fame, stopped at the Pro Shop where I got some goodies for myself & stalked Edgar Bennett & then went back to my cousin's place for some hanging out & steak & crab legs.  It was such a nice day...did you catch the part where I stalked Edgar Bennett?  If you don't know, he was a running back for the Packers back in the 90's & is now apart of the coaching staff.  I was just walking around looking at stuff when I spotted him.  Seriously, I was in stalk mode cuz I wasn't quite sure that it was him.  We locked eyes a couple of times & I even sat & pretended to look at men's sweaters so I could stare.  Yea, I know creepy but he's awesome.  We were so surprised to see him.  I wanted to get a picture but I was too scared so I just stalked instead.  Tee hee!

Now, here is the photo dump portion of the posting, enjoy:

You can sign pretty much anywhere in the Sun Drop museum &
while Jen was signing my camera decided to do this.

"This one time when I stalked Edgar Bennett..."

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.
