Tuesday Talk...

Gee, what do I want to talk about today?  I don't know.  Maybe I'll go with reflecting on the year known as 2015.  Here are some of my favorite pictures from the year:


Getting ready to jump into the freezing Wisconsin River in January.  Brrr.

Me & my "big bro", Greg, at the work Christmas party.

A trip to see my sister & she left me these "feel better" goodies in my room.  :)


Trying Ice Box wine at Cold Country with there fine folks.
That wine was SO dang good!

Watching the Badgers beat Kentucky in basketball to be in the Final Four!

I made this sign for my friend, Christa, who battled breast cancer earlier in the year.
She is one of the coolest people you would meet so she deserved this BIG time.

  1. So many great memories from the year! That sunset is stunning and I love your Halloween costumes! It's fun to look back and reflect isn't it? I always realize I did a lot more than I thought I did each year.

    1. Oh, I know! There were a couple of months that I had a hard time just picking out two pictures cuz we did SO much. Plus, there are pictures of my nieces & nephew that I don't post on the blog that I SO wish I could have cuz they are so dang adorable...but that would have made it more difficult. :)

  2. What a great year! One of my favorite parts of this week is looking back at all the memories of the year!

    1. It's really crazy looking back at all the fun things that I got to do this past year & the memories made. Love it!

  3. Sharing a great year with many here on Tuesday Talk. Appreciate that you did. Now we are heading toward another year so get that camera out and begin again. Happy New Year!

    1. I've already started my January photo file. Ha! Bring on 2016! :)

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.
