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 in - a Chevrolet Captiva.

We drove 'er & then also drove a Chevrolet Equinox but I was not comfortable in it & pretty much took it right back, Paul didn't even want to drive it.  Well, we're figuring out the financing & hopefully, "Cappy" will be mine within the next couple of days.  :)

After car shopping, we ventured over to Greg & Jill's to hang out on the patio for a cookout.  It was a really nice time as the weather was beautiful & the conversations were a-flowin'.

  Sunday - had to get up early, get ready & head out to church for "K"'s First Communion.  She was so pretty in her communion getup.  Then it was off to Greg & Jill's for a quick bite to eat before heading off to my cousin's Diaper Party.  That was a good time - food, convo, bowling & some video game racing with "Z".

I got home, did some chores around the house (didn't get them all done), painted my nails, watched Fear the Walking Dead, read a chapter of Chamber of Secrets & hit the sack.


  1. You're making me hungry with talk of hibachi :). Sounds like a good weekend! I hope you get Cappy:).

    Ps....joeys mom drove an Equinox. That thing was crap!

    1. Hey, friend, I'm so glad that you stopped by! I've missed you! But the hibachi was really good & I even had me some California Roll as an appetizer. Yum! :)

  2. I am seriously living in the dark ages these days. Can I blame it on having to littles?! I've never heard that song AND I had no idea Chevrolet had a Captiva- and I usually know my vehicles! LOVE it though and I hope Cappy if yours asap!

    1. You're a busy mama nowadays so you can for sure blame it on them. The Captivas were only made for a couple of years & now the Chevy Trax will be replacing them. They were made to be fleet vehicles & Cappy was but she still has a warranty & such on it. By the way, she is mine, I picked her up last night. :)

  3. New car shopping is so much fun! I've been driving the same little SUV for 10 years now and it's about time for an upgrade for me too!

    1. I had my Cobalt for about six/seven years & I wanted something a lil bigger, she was a good car & now she'll be put in storage for my youngest stepdaughter. :)

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.
