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 have two at work that are doing well (one is blooming right now) & one at work that is all tipping to one side but is still alive.

  6.  Lunch dates.  I have a lunch date with my brother's girlfriend, Katie, today.  We are just hitting up a local coffee shop but it's always nice to get together.

  7.  New vehicles.  I got myself a new vehicle yesterday.  It all went rather quickly but I am now the owner of a 2013 Chevrolet Captiva.  She's a pretty lil thing.  :)

  8.  Busy lives.  I think that being busy is good, keeps one out of trouble & between my calendar & Sunshine's, we are always running around doing this & that.

  9.  DVR.  I love having it so I am able to watch all my favorite TV shows when I have the time to do so.

  10.  My Kindle.  Best thing ever!  I really do love my Kindle more than most people.  Ha, ha!


  1. Congrats on the new car!! I keep going back and forth between models and years that I like, but I just can't decide! Having lunch dates is a great way to break up the day, and give you something to look forward to (other than food!). Great list!

    1. I had to downgrade to what I got because I originally wanted a Jeep Grand Cherokee & since they are more expensive than the first house I bought, we could not swing it. So, 2013 Chevrolet Captiva it is. I like it, it's precious. :)

  2. I've been terrible. I used to weekly list 10 things that make me happy with a link-up. I've failed miserably at participating in months. It's a feel good activity to stop and think of little happy things. Thanks for sharing yours :)

    1. Right, it really does make one feel good. & just the smallest things can bring a smile & there is never anything wrong with that! :)

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.
