Thankful Thursday...

I'm thankful...for my burning Apple Pumpkin candle I have burning in my office.  There is just something about having a burning candle that calms me...that's why I have fifty million candles burning at home at night.  Paul is fearful that I'll be burning the house down with all the candles.  I love them, I cannot help it!

Me too, Britney, me too.

I'm thankful...that tonight I should be able to sit down & watch Ant-Man.  I bought it on Tuesday & we thought about watching it last night but it got to be too late.  So, my fingers are crossed that tonight will be the night for some Ant-Man action.

I'm thankful...that after the holidays, I can finally take my acrylic nails off.  They look nice & such but I kinda miss painting them every Sunday night.  I really enjoyed doing that & I liked seeing a fresh coat every Monday morning to start off my week.

I'm thankful...that because Paul & I are watching "K", "C" & "D" while Greg & Jill go to the Packer game on Sunday, they bought us tickets to see Star Wars next Thursday.  I am SO excited!  Honestly, I've never been this big of a nerd but I really cannot wait to see it.  It's gonna be awesome!


  1. Love this! I painted my nails tonight, while we drive down the road:). I thought about lighting the candle too, but thought we may have a disaster with all these bumpy roads! :)

    1. Yea, I don't think that burning a candle in a moving vehicle is probably a good idea. Ha!

  2. I'm the same with nail polish! I love changing mine all the time so I can't ever commit to a longer-lasting nail solution.

    1. It's been really hard for me, I've had these things on since September & I'm ready for them to be gone so I can paint away again. :)

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.
