Musical Monday / Weekend Update...

Musical Monday - The Sound of Silence by Disturbed.  This band is one of my favorite bands & I'm not even kidding.  I love Disturbed SO much that I almost cried when I couldn't see them at Northern Invasion but hopefully, Rock USA will be attended & I can control myself not to rush the stage & stroke David's chin piercings.  Tee hee!  I <3 David!

Weekend Update - 

    Friday:  had to go do some grocery shopping right after work & get some last minute things for Sunshine's confirmation party.  Then when the hubby & I got everything unloaded, he took me out to eat & then we came home to watch The Force Awakens.

    Saturday:  we had Sunshine's confirmation party & it went on without a hitch.  The weather was beautiful, there was plenty of good convo, delicious grub & well-wishes.

After the party, I ventured over to my mother's to help with some stuff at her dwelling, picked up Sunshine to head down to the office so she could print off her Faith Statement for the service & then home to relax & watch The Witch with the hubby.  I am convinced that I was just too tired to really pay attention to the movie so I may have to watch it again.

    Sunday:  Confirmation Service Day!  I got up early & got ready so I could put Sunshine's hair in the hot rollers & such.  She was so pretty - inside & out!

My mom, Jill & "K" came to service & as we were heading in, I saw Paul's parents with Trouble in the backseat.  & then we get into the church & Paul is sitting in the pew in front of Sunshine's mother's family.  My anxiety went through the roof.  At one point, my mom leaned over & said:  "you're shaking".  But we got through it & afterwards, Paul & I went out to eat with Greg, Jill & the kids while Sunshine went with her mom.  We then came home, did a few things & my anxiety got the best of me & left me bedridden with a migraine the rest of the night - I didn't even paint my nails, watch Fear the Walking Dead or Game of Thrones...that's when you know that I'm not doing well.  Ugh!


  1. She looks absolutely radiant! I'm so sorry about the family anxiety. Ugh. I hope that ultimately you were able to focus on the positive experiences of the day.

    1. Once I got a chance to read her Faith Statement, it made me feel good. She wrote about me: "she is a very kind & wonderful lady to be with everyday. She brings me to church, makes sure that I do Sermon Notes & to pay attention throughout the whole service." I got the biggest shout out & that made me feel good. Ha!

  2. Awe, she looked so pretty!!!! Family anxiety and drama is just the worst! Sorry you had to deal with that.

    1. Thank you. She is a pretty girl, inside & out. I mean, she has her moments like every other teen but she's a very kind-hearted gal. :)

  3. I hope you're feeling better now! And she looks so gorgeous! I love her hair!

    1. She loves my hot rollers. We tried them on Mother's Day & it turned out really well but on this day they were falling flat but I think that was because we didn't leave them in as long. Oh well, they still looked good for our pictures at least. :)

  4. She looks wonderful! Congratulations on her confirmation.
    I'm glad her party went well.

    1. Thank you! I'm glad that her party went well too, we didn't put too much planning into it cuz we've just been SO busy lately, it's been insane but it came together well. :)

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that tonight after work, I'm gonna pick up some din-din for my sister & I & then we're gonna play some old school Nintendo games on her projection screen.  Awhoo hoo!  I am so happy that my sister is back home!  :)

I am thankful...for Stan Lee.  I know that I've probably said it before but this guy is pretty dang amazing with the Marvel characters & stories that came to be from his mind.  I just wish that I had that kind of brain to think up all the crazy things/beings he does.

I am thankful...that in four weeks, I'll be in Las Vegas.  Just me & my hubby hopefully catching a few shows, winning some dough & having some good grub.  We'll for sure be seeing Love by Cirque & then I wanna get him tickets to either Cris Angel or Penn & Teller as a birthday gift.  I tried talking him into seeing Britney but he hasn't caved yet, I'm hoping that he will cuz if I get to see Britney, it would be amazing cuz I love her!

I am tha…

Tuesday Talk...

You wanna talk about something today?  Well, linkup with some fabulous girls for some Tuesday Talk - Jessicaor any of the other hosts.  :)

The only thing I can think about talking about is food, breakfast food to be exact.  I want to fill up on some delish carbs in the form of hash browns, toast, French toast & a sausage patty (just to mix it up a bit).  I want to be sitting at a cute lil diner chomping away...but sadly, I am not, I am at work instead.  Boo!

I am just thinking about all the things I would rather be doing instead of work, like, that in six weeks, the hubby & I will be on our way to Vegas.  The closer we get the more excited I get to be away for a week straight...I may never come back.  Maybe I'll become a cocktail waitress & leave again.  That would be the bestest thing ever...okay, maybe not the bestest but it would be pretty dang cool.

Since this post is just all over the place, I might as well talk about the fact that it's Valentine's Day.  I…

It's Wednesday So That Means...

So, back in the day, there was a linkup about weekly lessons.  I really liked it but since it has crumbled & the linkup is no more.  :(  I really liked doing it so I'm going to continue doing it, join me!
I've Learned...that when Sunshine gets an attitude with me & I make her go to her room & rethink how she speaks to me, she comes down ten minutes later & is sweet as pie.  I even got three "I Love Yous" from her in a span of about thirty minutes.  Ha!  
I've Learned...that I need to make another attempt at the Grand Mac from McDonald's.  I tried to do it last week but did not finish it (I finished the fries & the apple pie though).  That was not good enough for my grandfather so I need to have another go at it so I think that since it's just me & Sunshine again tonight, we're gonna pick up McDonald's again & give it another shot.

I've Learned...that once the weather warms up, even if just for a lil bit, I think Spring…
