The Year Known As 2016...

Well, it is that time to talk about the year that was & what the new year will hopefully bring.  I'm gonna share some of my favorite pictures throughout the year & reflect on all the good moments.  Join me!  :)


January - we started the year off with a gathering of friends over drinks & many rounds of Loaded Questions & Cards Against Humanity.


February - my birthday month!  I got to experience my first Badger basketball game on my actual birthday.  They gave me a wonderful gift of beating Ohio State.  Awhoo hoo!  Then I wanted some of my favorite people to come out & help me celebrate the weekend after & to say that I have a great bunch of people surrounding me is an understatement, I am very lucky.

March - what a crazy month this was.  Sunshine went to State for gymnastics, we celebrated Paul's 40th birthday & we went to Florida for Spring Break.  I cannot wait to go back to Universal Studios to take some more time with Harry & maybe enjoy some mor…

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that I was able to have many celebrations for the Christmas holiday with family & friends.  I loved the time spent with my people & the memories made.

I am thankful...that tonight I'm going in for a detox massage.  Not only are my shoulders killing me but many people around me are dropping like flies to illnesses.  I wanna do what I can to stay healthy enough to, at least, celebrate the New Year.

I am thankful...that on Monday, my office is closed but Sunshine will be off to school & hopefully Paul will be going to work so I have the day to myself.  My fingers are crossed!  There is nothing more that I would like than to have the house to myself for a couple of hours to watch Netflix, eat some delicious grub & maybe color.  :)

I am thankful...for the yummy smelling Sugar Cookie candle that I got as a gift that I currently have burning in my office.  It smells amazing...it's actually making me hungry for a some sugar cookies.  Ha, ha!

& Poof Christmas Is Done...

Can you believe how quickly Christmas came & gone?!  Holy cow!  I had a total of five days off from work & they flew by just as fast as a regular weekend.  I just don't understand why that has to happen.  Anywho, here is a breakdown of my holiday:


Thursday:  my sister was home from Colorado so she came over and helped me bake & decorate cutout cookies all while playing the Christmas episodes of Friends & Gilmore Girls.  We had such a fun time with lots of laughs.


Friday:  I was up early, had some coffee & convo with my brother & his girlfriend, then went off to The Walmart to get last minute goodies so much so that the bank was like "wait a minute" & put a hold on my debit card.  Ha!  Then I came home finished a few things & then retired to my room & watched some American Housewife until my friend, Christa, came over bringing me the last bit of my Christmas present (the bag above).  I loved it so much that I threw a big ol' hug on he…

Tuesday Talk...

You wanna talk about something today?  Well, linkup with some fabulous girls for some Tuesday Talk - JessicaLizStephanie or any of the other hosts.  :)
What shall I talk about this week, oh, how about the fact that Christmas is this weekend!  Eeek!  I'm getting closer & closer to being fully ready.  The husband has to pick up one last gift for Trouble & I have to bake sugar cookies & decorate them.  I got the rest of the presents wrapped last night so when I'm off of work on Thursday & Friday, I'll be able to concentrate on the cookies & cleaning the house in prep for hosting a Christmas Celebration on Sunday.
I've already posted a few things that I got SunshineTrouble and Paul but here are a few of my other favorite gifts that I got some folks this year:

These Pride & Prejudice goodies for Jill.   It's her favorite book/movie.

This was probably the gift I was  most excited to give.  It was for "K". She wanted The Snow Queen boo…

Musical Monday / Weekend Update...

Musical Monday - Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy by Pentatonix.  I love the original from The Nutcracker (it's actually my alarm right now) but this is fun & I may have to listen to the rest of Pentatonix's Christmas album.  :)

Weekend Update - 

    Friday:  Right after work, I jetted out on the snow covered roads to pick up "D" from daycare as we were gonna be doing our Christmas Celebration & it was one last thing that Greg or Jill had to do which would get them to our home on time.  Well, they were on time, early actually so we were able to enjoy some tacos, presents & drinky poos.



Saturday:  I got up early & got ready to spend the day baking with Jill.  We really did go to town on all the baking from about 10:15 until 5:15.  We had Christmas music playing & were on our feet all day making treats for all our folks.




After all the baking, Paul & I grabbed "C" & met Greg & "K" at the theater to see Rogue One (my review c…
