January Goals: 2016...

Everyone is posting away about new goals & I probably should set some goals for myself & work towards those goals.  I used to do monthly goals back in the day & I think that maybe I should go back to doing that.  So, here we go:

Year Round Goals:

  1.  Read more.  I'm almost done with The 5th Wave & would like to finish it by the end of this week & pick up a James Patterson book to finish off by the end of the month.

  2.  Facebook less.  I waste more time on Facebook before bed rather than reading & I'd like to change that.  If I haven't had a chance to check up on Facebook, I typically go back twelve hours, I'm only gonna back a few hours & be done.

  3.  Relax.  I already have my monthly massage appointments that I started doing & back to taking baths every Sunday night.  There is nothing more that I love than doing those two things for myself & I'm going to continue doing them.

  4.  Bills.  I want to really concentrate on getting my bills paid down/off.  I have a medical bill that I want to pay off & the Justice credit card that I got to get Sunshine gifts.  Since she's getting over Justice & moving on to "big girl things", it's a good time to pay the card off.  Plus, the more I pay off, the closer I'll get to my Jeep!

January Goals:

1.  Color/Craft.  I did some crafting in December for Christmas gifts but I think that it's about time that I get back to doing it more often.  Plus, I got one of those adult coloring books for Christmas from Jill & I haven't had a chance to crack it open yet.

2.  Instagram.  Ever since the My Holiday Spark challenge wrapped up, I haven't really posted to much so I'm hopeful that I'll find a challenge that will keep my interest like that one did.

3.  TV Shows.  I want to get caught up on Grimm with Sunshine & Heroes with Paul.  Sunshine & I have two episodes left of season four & then we can begin season five which is waiting for us on the DVR.  Paul & I have season four left & then Heroes Reborn on the DVR.

4.  Tattoo.  I'd like of figure out what Winnie the Pooh quote to put between Pooh & Piglet on my shoulders & make my appointment to get it done.  I think that I'm gonna go with this:

What are some of your goals for this new year?


  1. I used to be a James Patterson junkie. I've gotten WAY behind. I need to catch up on some. I just need to read Cross Justice, and I'm caught up on Cross. I think I'm 2 behind in the Private series, and I really like that series. And 2 behind on Michael Bennett too. I think I need a vacation where I only read James Patterson books :)

    1. You're further than me - I haven't even started the Private series yet! I have the first couple but haven't read them yet. I'm behind on all of them - Cross, Bennett & Women's Murder Club...I too need a vacation with JP! Ha! I love that idea.

Happy 34th Birthday To Me...

Since tomorrow is my 34th birthday, I decided in celebration of it, I should list 34 facts about me.  So, here we go:

1.  For lunch today, I had a Big Grab bag of Funyuns, a bottle of Dew & some mini-Snickers.  I'm all about my health today, it seems.  :|

2.  I bought my first pair of leggings today since I was about 12.  They are for working out & they were on clearance.

3.  Speaking of leggings, I so badly want the tattoo version of them.  You know how the complete coverage of the arm in tattoos is called a "sleeve", I started calling the complete coverage of the leg in tattoos a "legging".  Ha!

4.  I've seen every episode of Friends at least ten times.  Paul will turn it on when it's on TV & test me on what episode it is...I'm rarely wrong.

5.  I really, really, really want to go back to Vegas real soon.  I'm almost half-tempted to ask Paul if we can go there for our second anniversary.

6.  I pretty much have tiny panic attacks on a da…

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 toApril to do so.  :) My five this week are things I am most excited about in the new Fantastic Beasts movie.  In case you didn't see the preview of it, here is one & this is one that I did not see until today:


  1.  Seeing more of Johnny Depp as Grindelwald.  Now, if you are new to these parts, I have been "forced" to be a fan of Johnny Depp as my mom is in love with him & told me that he's my dad.  Ha!  So, whenever I see him I always say to myself "hi, Dad!"  Ha!  Plus, it helps that he's an amazing actor.  I am so excited to see how he plays this character, I know that it will be fantastic!

  2.  Jacob Kowalski.  Oh my gosh, do I love this character!  Dan Fogler plays him so wonderfully.  He is just so likable &a…
