Musical Monday / Weekend Update...

Christmas Waltz by She & Him

Another you think that they come around to quickly - I do.  Anywho, keeping with the Christmas tuneages with some She & Him.  My friend, Chelsie, got me stuck on them.  I think Zooey Deschanel is fabulous!  :)

As for the weekend, it was another busy one:

Friday, Sunshine had dress rehearsal for her winter dance recital.  After she was done with that, she stayed the night at a friend's house so Paul & I went out to dinner, did a little shopping & then came home to watch Pixels (my review is here).

Saturday was Sunshine's recital & we went to the afternoon performance.  I was a little upset that it wasn't more "Christmas-like" & they only had ONE Nutcracker song!  What the Hell?!  But the girls did well & I was able to find some new tunes to add to my Spotify - score!

Yesterday, was a typical Sunday - chores around the house & then Sunshine & I did some crafting.  She wanted to make some gifts for some folks.  She was having a great craft day...I, on the other hand, was having a difficult time.  Nothing was going the way I wanted so I gave up after doing three jars.  Sigh.

So, how was your weekend?


  1. I'm jealous of your great craft day! My craft days have been disastrous lately! :)

    1. Mine too, I just don't get it. I'll have one more project to do as a Christmas present & it better turn out or I'll be very upset. Ha!

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.
