Friday Five...

I am really at a loss on what my five should be on this day.  I've been helping my girl, Ashley, with some plans/ideas for her upcoming wedding & thought that I should post some of my favorite pictures from my wedding...but thought that would be an idea best used around our wedding anniversary...but what's to say that I'll even remember to do that...ah, screw it, that's what my five will be.  Ha!

  1.  This is my sister (Melinda), Sunshine, my bestie/MOH (Kim) & cousin (Jen).  I loved this picture so much that I have it in my office.  It really makes me smile.  I really do not know who is photobombing who & that cracks me up.

  2.  I don't know if there will ever be a picture of Sunshine & I that I love more than this one.  I mean, she was 12 here & her thoughtfulness & beauty is beyond her years.  

  3.  Holy crap do I look happy here.  I don't know who I'm smiling at but it's one big smile.  Ha!  I also have this one in my office right in front of me.

  4.  My grandfather & I dancing the "Father/Daughter Dance".  This man is hands down, my favorite person in the whole wide world.  As long as I could remember, I knew HE would be the one to walk me down the aisle at my wedding.  I love my Farter (yes, that's what I call him - tee hee!)

  5.  My drunk bridesmaid, Jill, & I.  She had celebrated a whole lot this evening & she deserved it, she had just had "D" two months before.  She ended up plopping on the floor for a break & I sat my butt down beside her & my coworker's husband / my distant cousin, snapped this picture & it really is one of my favorites.


  1. I love this post! So much happiness in one place!

    That photo of Regan & you has always been one of my favorites!

    1. :) It was a fun/happy time, that's for sure.

  2. Oh, I love all of the pictures. That one of Sunshine and you is just too gorgeous for words.

    1. I know, right?! There has not been a picture taken since that even compares to that one. I have a feeling that will forever be my favorite of her & I. :)

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.
