Tuesday Talk...


Ah, another Tuesday is here so it's time to do some talkin'.  If you wanna linkup, visit Jessica over at Sweet Little Ones.

So, the other night I was lying in bed thinking about all the cool things I enjoyed in my youth & if I could, I would probably try to get every single thing that I thought about cuz they must have been really frickin' great if I still think of them at night when I'm thirty-five years old.

For some reason or another, I was a huge Chicago Bulls fan for a lil bit.  I don't know when it started or how it started but I remember sitting in the living room with my Chicago Bulls sleeping bag watching games - Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, etc.


My Ice Capades Barbie.  I loved her, she was probably my favorite Barbie, I always played with her.  Does it seem kinda weird to anyone else that I went from watching basketball to playing with Barbies?!  Ha!


My 90210 dolls.  I didn't have all of them, I only had Brandon, Kelly & Dylan but I didn't want Brenda or Donna...I didn't like them.  Ha!


Anything & everything NKOTB.  I had t-shirts, buttons, dolls (Jordan & Joey), posters, books - basically, you name it, I had it.  To say that I loved NKOTB was probably an understatement! I <3 Joey!  :)


Dark Shadows.  This was a soap opera from 1966 to 1971.  It was about vampires & witches & werewolves all things that I loved.  I would set my VCR to record them from the SciFi channel everyday & then watch them while I did my homework.  I even dressed up & did a monologue from this show for drama in junior high.

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.
