Tuesday Talk...


Wanna join in for some Tuesday Talk action?  Hit up Jessica to linkup...all the cool kids are doing it.

Today's Topic:  What are your favorite ways to spend the summer with your family?

Now, I will note that there are some of these things that I enjoy with friends or are a lot like family.

    1.  Going to baseball games.  Whether it be for our hometown team or the Brewers, we're cheering someone on.  :)




    2.  Music Fests.  We started last year with Northern Invasion & we were not able to attend that one this year but we'll be going to Rock USA next month & I am SO damn excited.


    3.  Fires.  I love just sitting around the fire.  I'm actually in the process of hopefully having one on Saturday night.


    4.  Happy Place.  I love heading "Up Nort" for some time away from the hubbub of society.  Honestly, it's the best place ever.



    5.  Going to the zoo.  I'm a sucker for zoos.  Last year, we hit up the Milwaukee Zoo.  This year, we went to the zoo in Suamico.  I love them.



    6.  Boating.  I love boating.  It really is one of my favorite summer activities to do.

  1. Concerts, the zoo, baseball games and my annual camping trip are always on my summer bucket list! I'm a little jealous of your firepit- I wish I could have/build one where I live!

    1. We had a pretty sad fire pit but I complained about it enough that the hubby did the stonework around it & such last Spring & now it's quite pretty. I always have to have a fire pit, they are the best! :)

  2. Summers almost sound fun when you say it like that =) If only it weren't so humid, and miserable.

    1. Yea, I'm sure that your summers are just dreadful. I love summers here in Wisconsin but they do get pretty hot & humid from time to time. :)

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 …

Currently...

Another month starting with another Currently linkup - awhoo hoo!  So, what does Anne have going on this month?  Well, come along & check it out!  :)

Gathering..."recipes" for my new oil diffuser.  Lately, it's been all about the eucalyptus because Paul has been sick for a week now & I got it a lil bit.  I told him that I'm gonna have a buy a new bottle of eucalyptus before I get a chance to crack any of my other bottles. 

Making...a whole lot of nothing.  We really have not had a sit-down meal in awhile because one of us has been busying doing something or we just don't feel like cooking.  Tomorrow, however, I do have on the menu to make chicken & rice with green beans.  So, we have that.

Sipping...coffee with Sugar Cookie creamer.  It's delish but I am ready for something with some caramel in it.  I love me some caramel.  Yummy!

Following...lots on Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat.  My favorite to watch on Instagram/Snapchat is Taylor.  She cracks m…

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…
