Musical Monday / Weekend Update...

Musical Monday:  Mayhem by Halestorm.  You know who's one cool bitch?  Lzzy Hale.  Oh yea.  She's awesome!  I've seen Halestorm twice now & both times was amazing.

Weekend Update:  

    Friday - I got done with work, headed home to get my stuff packed for the weekend & we head up to Eastwood which is apart of the National Forest outside of Medford, Wisconsin.  We went there last year with our friends, Ben & Christa who have been going there for, at least, twenty years.  The first night we just hung out around the fire, listening to music & chatting.  We did play one game of Scattagories before venturing off to bed.

    Saturday - we got up early, hung out for a bit eating some bacon for breakfast.  The boys hung back at the campground to gather wood (start drinking) while Christa & I headed into Medford to hit up the Walmart to pick up some stuff.  We then headed back, had some lunch & hung out for a bit while I fought off a slight headache.  When all was well, we hit up the glacier spring for some fresh spring water & went for a hike.

Can you find a friend in this picture?

We then went back to the campsite, got supper started, ate up some good grub - nothing like baked beans warmed in the can over the fire.  Yum!  We then settled in with our Tippy Cow & Cards Against Humanity.  We had played well into the night so when it was getting late & I was feeling like I had had enough Tippy Cow, I proclaimed that if my next card I had did not win, I was done!  I don't even remember what the black card said but who WOULDN'T pick this card I put down?!

I mean, come on!  So, we ended on that one & rejoined the fire for a bit.  I had enough, I cleaned some stuff up & went straight to the tent without saying anything, got ready for bed & passed right out.  I was so sleepy!

    Sunday - we all slept in a bit, got up, chowed down some bacon & started packing stuff up.  It seriously seemed like we had just gotten there & we were already packing up.  It sucked!  We headed home, got things unpacked & started laundry & such.  I got all showered up & into my Packer pajama pants ready to watch the first preseason game...

However, there would be no game.  I was so sad!  I guess not real sad as it was only preseason but sad enough that I wouldn't be seeing any football.  I did get to watch me some gymnastics & swimming & that made me happy.  At one point, Sunshine told me to sit down while watching swimming & I told her that I couldn't cuz I was just so excited.  I love watching swimming...for the Olympics.  :)


  1. Bahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaa your card in Cards Against Humanity. That game is so awesome.

    1. I know, right?! I know that if I saw that card, I wouldn't care what the black card said, that one would win hands down. Ha, ha!

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.
