Tuesday Talk...

Have you missed me?!  It's been over a week since I've posted anything.  With going on vacation, I got too busy to blog.  I hate that!  But I'm back & this week in Tuesday Talk with Jessica, I'm gonna talk about my Memorial Day weekend which started last Thursday.

I had originally just had Friday off but then decided to take a half day on Thursday to get Up North a little earlier & then just decided to take the whole dang day off as my cousin, Jennifer, was being induced that morning & I thought that I might be able to meet my new baby cousin before I ventured.  By the time, she had him & got cleaned up & such, I was already an hour into my trip...believe me, if it would have been less, I probably would have turned around.  But I headed up & was glad to get up there early.

We pretty much just hung out chitchatting, eating & such until it was time to hit the sack.

Friday, I took my grandmother into Minocqua to do our usual shopping/lunch date.  I was so proud of my self, I went into my favorite sports store & only bought decals for the Captiva.  When we hit up Minocqua Fudge, I ended up buying over two pounds of taffy.  No jokes.

We spent the rest of the afternoon playing games in the camper & chatting.  That night we went out for fish, stopped for some ice cream & came back to play some more games before going to bed.

Saturday, I made some French toast for breakfast & then we just hung out (seeing a pattern) until we had visits from my mom's ex-husband & my husband.  Paul & I did get to take a walk down to the lake between rainstorms.

Then we headed off to the typical Wisconsinite thing for a Saturday night - a supper club for drinks & prime rib.  I actually tried a Sloe Gin Fizz & liked it!  :)

After dinner, I said goodbye to Paul as he headed home & me back to the campground with the grandparents.  Again, we hung out & did some coloring in my adult coloring books & then headed off to bed with rain falling.

Sunday, we got things packed up & hit the road.  I ended up stopping in Wausau for some Panera Bread all by myself.  Since I didn't have any way to access Facebook from the campground, I checked that out while I enjoyed my bread, Mac & Cheese & Bear Claw.  Yum!  When I got home, I got unpacked, watched some Orphan Black & just relaxed.

Yesterday was the day, the day I would meet my new cousin!  So, I got my butt outta bed, showered, ran a few errands, picked up lunch & headed to my cousin's for the day.  I got to love up on my new cousin & the new big brother.  It was a great day!

My new cousin, "T".  I love, love, love him!  I cannot tell you how long I snuggled with him yesterday but it was a long time.  I really did not want to leave last night but I figured that since I had spent about six hours there, it was time to go home & get ready for the work week.  I was/am so jealous that my cousin, Jennifer, & her husband are now off until July to spend time with their new addition.  So awesome!

So, how was your Memorial Day weekend?

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…

$10 at Target...

Yea, I was able to get to Target & get some goodies so I could link-up with one of my favorites!  Awhoo hoo!  If you wanna join in, visit Liz or any of the other hosts to linkup.  :)

Here is my haul:

Sunshine complained the other night that she needed more socks so I picked her up some.

I had to hit the clearance Easter stuff & picked these up for Paul.  He loves sour stuff so thought they would be right up his alley.  :)

I picked these up for myself.  I love them SO much & since I didn't make myself an Easter bag I figured I would grab these when they were 50% off.  Yum!

My grand total:  $10.96 Almost a dollar over but that's okay, I got some needed things.
