Friday Five...

TGIF, TGIF!  You wanna do some linkin' up, sure here's the info:  visit Darci over at [the good life blog] for 5 on Friday or Karli over at Sept. Farm for Oh Hey Friday!.

My five for this Friday will be Five Reasons You Should Watch Game of Thrones...if you don't already.

1.  The theme song.  It's VERY rare that I fast forward through the opening credits cuz I love listening to the song & "sing" along.

2.  Tyrion Lannister.  There is a reason that Paul & I named our cat after him - we both love Tyrion!  I think outta everyone in the show, he has grown the most & really has a good head on his shoulders.  Plus, he not only slapped King Joffrey but also said that he didn't kill him but he wish he had.  Ha, ha!

3.  Daenerys Targaryen.  First of all, so pretty!  Secondly, ah, she has three dragons.  Can she get any cooler?!  I think not!  Plus, she kind but tough & I just love her for that.

4.  White Walkers.  I cannot wait to see what happens…

Tuesday Talk / 10 On Tuesday...

It's that time to do some linkin' up for some Tuesday Talk / 10 on Tuesday.  You wanna join in?  Well, of course you do!  Head on over to visit Jessica at Sweet Little Ones & Karli over at Sept. Farm.

This week:  Ten Reasons I'm Currently Broke.

  1.  New Vehicle.  I had to purchase some goodies for it - window visors, new way to charge/play my music, etc.  I haven't even gotten new decals on it yet but those will be happening.

  2.  Old Vehicle.  I had to take her & get her washed up & the oil changed before putting her in storage for the next year (we're saving the Cobalt for Sunshine - hopefully she'll have a job & good grades to be able to have it).

  3.  Leonardo.  I had to go buy The Revenant last week cuz it's so good.  Plus, my hubby loves Leonardo & I don't want him to miss having this movie that finally won his boy an Oscar.

  4.  Communions/Confirmations.  It seems that this is all we're doing now - "K" had …

My Thoughts On...

IMDB's summary:  "As a war between rival queen sisters Ravenna and Freya escalates, Eric and fellow warrior Sara, members of the Huntsmen army raised to protect Freya, try to conceal their forbidden love as they combat Ravenna's wicked intentions."

My thoughts:  this movie was a lot different than I thought it was going to be - it was a prequel/sequel.  Very strange.  While I love me some Chris Hemsworth, I really thought it was going to be more of the queens.  So, not that I was totally disappointed but I think I would have enjoyed watching the sisters over the lovers.

I normally wouldn't think of Emily Blunt as a villain but I thought she did an excellent job.  & Charlize is solid per usual & I just LOVE her as the evil Ravenna.  While I like Jessica Chastain, I didn't like her in the role of Sara.  I think that she's beautiful & talented & all that jazz but I thought she looked much older than her character probably should have.

The Hu…

Musical Monday / Weekend Update...

Musical Monday:  Castle by Halsey.  I'm going tonight to see The Huntsman tonight with my friend, Courtney, so I thought this song from the movie was a good one to have today.  I am so excited to see my boyfriend, Chris Hemsworth.

Man, I wanna do dirty things to this man!

Weekend Update:
    Friday - I went grocery shopping right after work & then proceeded to be upset with my husband so took my car to the car wash, did some shopping & then ended up going out for a lil bit with Greg & Jill to celebrate Greg's birthday.
Saturday - I got up, cleaned out the Cobalt, got it washed & the oil changed & then took it out to my uncle's to store it.  It was kind of a sad moment, to be honest.  Then got cleaned up & went out to the casino for supper & some gambling.  I ended up playing off of $10 for quite a long time before Paul had enough with losing & we left.  We went to a friend's house for a fire & I love going there for fires:

Sunday - I got…

Friday Five...

It's Friday & that's great for many reasons & one of them being this linkup.  So, if you wanna join in hit up Karli over at Sept. Farm or Darci over at [the good life blog].

Now, on to my five...with the passing of Prince, I'm gonna do my five favorite Prince songs.  My mom loved Prince & I have listened to Purple Rain many times on record.  So, here we go:

1.  Let's Go Crazy.

2.  Kiss.

3.  When Doves Cry.

4.  Raspberry Beret.

5.  Pussy Control.

Thank you, Prince, for the good tunes & being one of the prettiest men I have ever seen!   Rest in peace!

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that I have a massage scheduled for tonight.  I'm trying something new this evening - a Soothing Body Massage.  I typically got a Hot Stone Massage but since the weather is getting nice out, I thought that it may be a little warm for that so decided to go with something different.

I am thankful...that my plant at work has a flower on it.  For so long it's only been the green but now, I got a pretty lil yellow flower.  Plus, I tend to kill plants so the fact that this one is still alive & doing well, I'm pretty thankful for.

I am thankful...that I think that I'll be going to get me a burger for lunch tonight.  I don't care where I'm getting it from but this girl needs a burger & I will be pretty dang happy when I get one in my mouth.

I am thankful...that my hubby didn't have too much of a fit when I ordered window visors for the Captiva & that they were over $100.00.  He doesn't like visors but I love them, I've had them on m…

It's Wednesday So That Means...

Here we are on another Wednesday to do some hashtaggin' & confessin'.  If you wanna join, hit up Laura over at Life with Lolo &/or Nadine over at Life By Nadine Lynn.
I confess...that if I have to deal with one more incompetent person this morning, I may just lose it.  I mean is it really so hard for a women who was old enough to get married & pregnant three times to call & make her own appointments & not need her mommy to do it?!  #CutTheCord #OverbearingMomsDriveMeNuts

I confess...that I want myself a big ol' burger at this very moment...mmm, Big Mac.  #BigMacsForLife #TheSpecialSauce

I confess...that I just wanna go home & sit on the porch to read my book.  I just started Prisoner of Azkaban for the second time last night so I just wanna go read & wear my "I Solemnly Swear That I Am Up To No Good" tank that I had ordered for our trip to Universal but I didn't get it in time.  #YesImThatBigOfAHarryPotterNerd #MyNerdinessIsGettingWo…

Tuesday Talk / 10 On Tuesday...

It's linkup time, everyone!  You wanna join the fun?  Well, you can.  For Tuesday Talk, linkup with Jessica over at Sweet Little Ones.  For 10 on Tuesday, linkup with Karli over at Sept. Farm.

My topic on this Tuesday are things that make me happy:

  1.  Not having to wear a jacket anymore.  It's been so nice around these parts that jackets have not been needed.

  2.  Baby snuggles.  Last night, Jill & I went to visit our friend, Amanda, & meet her new baby girl.  She felt so comfortable that she farted on me multiple times.  Tee hee!

  3.  "D".  She really is in my top ten favorite people.  She always gets excited to see me & that makes me feel special.  :)

  4.  Coffee.  If you would have asked me a couple of years ago if I would love coffee this much, I would have said:  "eh, it tastes like dirt".  Well, not so much anymore especially lattes.  Yummy!

  5.  Live plants.  This makes me happy because I tend to kill plants rather quickly & I…

Musical Monday / Weekending...

Musical Monday:  System by Jonathan Davis.  The hubby & I were listening to the Queen of the Damned soundtrack on Friday night & I just love this song.  I love watching the part in the movie where Queen Akasha walks into the bar to this song & rips out a guy's heart.  Ha, ha!

Weekend Update:

  Friday - the hubby & I took Sunshine to her mother in Appleton & then had supper at a hibachi place, did a little shopping & then hit up the martini bar.  Now, to say that I am a lightweight is probably an understatement because I was done after one & a half martinis.  We'll just say that on the way home, I had to make Paul pull over for me.  :\

Saturday - I was up early so I talked Paul into going out for breakfast to a local cafe, then out to the casino where I lost $60 in a very short time so I excused myself to the lobby/outside to read my book.  I was not going to lose any more money.  Then we went off to a local dealership to look at a car I was interested …

Friday Five...

It's Friday!  Awhoo hoo!  Now, just to get to the end of the workday would be good.

My five for this day are my five latest Instagram posts...mostly because I don't have another other idea on what to do & it's easy.

"After two hours of waiting in line, tickets were in hand.#RapidsSchoolOfPerformingArts#SpringRecital2016"

"Go Brew Crew!#HoorayItsOpeningDay#MilwaukeeBrewers"

"To say that Tyrion is bigger than Magic is an understatement! Ha!#CatsOfInstagram"

"Tyrion liked watching my game. #CatsOfInstagram"

It's Wednesday So That Means...

I confess...that this picture of my co-worker's lil guy really made my morning cuz not only is he adorable but his outfit has got me cracking up!  #ShitHappens #HeIsEvenWearingBrownPants

I confess...that when my hubby works from home & brings me a latte from our local coffee shop, it makes me more happy than it probably should.  #IHeartCoffee #MaybeHesSuckingUpButIDontCare

I confess...that I am probably more excited than I should be that Sunshine will be with her mother this weekend (for the first time in over a month) & I get my hubby all to myself.  We really need some "adult time" as it seems like forever since we have had it.  #DateNight #GonnaHaveSomeDrinks

I confess...that all I want to do at this moment is go home, get in my comfies, go to my room in the basement & play some Led Zeppelin records in the dark.  #LedZeppelinRocks #VinylIsBetter

You wanna linkup?  Sure, here are the gals to linkup with - Laura over at Life with Lolo and Nadine over at Life By…

Musical Monday / Weekend Update...

Musical Monday:  Low Rider by War.  This was one of the many tunes listened & sang to during my road trip with my aunt, uncle & cousin to LaCrosse this weekend to see my other cousin.  We always blare the tunes & sing & dance.  :)

Weekend Update:  

Friday - after work, I went home to lay down for a little bit before we had to drop Sunshine off at a friend's house for the evening.  Then Paul & I decided to meet our friends, Ben & Christa, out for supper & were surprised to be greeted by our friend, Gladys, & her daughters.  So, we made one big table & all enjoyed dinner & convo.

Saturday - I was up early & showered to head to a 5k with my Aunt Julie & Uncle Felix.  I was so happy that they had Dunkin Donuts there so we downed a couple of doughnut holes before doing the walk.  We did it in about 50 minutes & let me tell ya, it was a bit chilly.

Then we went home, changed, got my cousin (NOM) & headed to LaCrosse to visit my other…
