There Is Good In The World...

Lately, there has just been so much negative crap going on everywhere & I posted something on Facebook yesterday & my aunt said:  "Wow, this is truly amazing.  This shows there is still wonderful, loving people in this crazy world."  Now, let me back up a bit.  In case you're new around these parts, over the summer, I attended some Rafter baseball games (they're our hometown team).  Anywho, I feel in love with this guy:

He reminded me of Corey Hart who is my favorite baseball player EVER!

Anywho, check this out, I posted it on Facebook yesterday:  "I got quite a surprise last week, the mother of my favorite Rafter, Samuel Tolleson, contacted me after seeing some pictures I posted of Sam and asked if she could send me a lil something. I never expected this, she is way too sweet. Thank you SO much, Ann Tolleson, you've really made my day! I plan on getting a shadow box to display the jersey and some pictures so when Sam is famous, I'll be able to say "check this out!" Thanks again!

I put that with this picture:

I have not stopped smiling since I got it.  If I wore it, it would be big enough for me to wear as a dress...a short one but a dress all the same.  I, of course, won't wear it as I don't want to wash it in fear that the autograph will wash off.  I cannot have that.  Ha!  But all because I said nice things about her son she sent me one of the coolest gifts I've ever received.  It does pay to be nice.  :)


  1. How awesome is that?!? I have a similar story. My cousin's 5 year old son dressed as "Marcus Luttrell" from Lone Survivor last Halloween. He was very specific that he wasn't just any soldier; he was Marcus Luttrell. He had heard my cousin (his mom) and my uncle (his granddad) talk about what a patriot he is and what an amazing survival story he has to share. So, my cousin posted a pic in his Halloween costume. Somehow, his foundation found the pic, and they asked if they could send something to her son. Social media CAN be a really cool place sometimes.

    1. That is so awesome! Did he end up getting anything yet? I would be really interested to know what he received. So cool. I love when social media brings out some good. :)

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…

Tuesday Talk...

You wanna talk about something today?  Well, linkup with some fabulous girls for some Tuesday Talk - Jessicaor any of the other hosts.  :)

The only thing I can think about talking about is food, breakfast food to be exact.  I want to fill up on some delish carbs in the form of hash browns, toast, French toast & a sausage patty (just to mix it up a bit).  I want to be sitting at a cute lil diner chomping away...but sadly, I am not, I am at work instead.  Boo!

I am just thinking about all the things I would rather be doing instead of work, like, that in six weeks, the hubby & I will be on our way to Vegas.  The closer we get the more excited I get to be away for a week straight...I may never come back.  Maybe I'll become a cocktail waitress & leave again.  That would be the bestest thing ever...okay, maybe not the bestest but it would be pretty dang cool.

Since this post is just all over the place, I might as well talk about the fact that it's Valentine's Day.  I…

It's Wednesday So That Means...

So, back in the day, there was a linkup about weekly lessons.  I really liked it but since it has crumbled & the linkup is no more.  :(  I really liked doing it so I'm going to continue doing it, join me!
I've Learned...that when Sunshine gets an attitude with me & I make her go to her room & rethink how she speaks to me, she comes down ten minutes later & is sweet as pie.  I even got three "I Love Yous" from her in a span of about thirty minutes.  Ha!  
I've Learned...that I need to make another attempt at the Grand Mac from McDonald's.  I tried to do it last week but did not finish it (I finished the fries & the apple pie though).  That was not good enough for my grandfather so I need to have another go at it so I think that since it's just me & Sunshine again tonight, we're gonna pick up McDonald's again & give it another shot.

I've Learned...that once the weather warms up, even if just for a lil bit, I think Spring…
