Musical Monday/Weekend Update...

Musical Monday - Head Like a Hole by Nine Inch Nails.  I've been on a real 90's kick lately & on Sunday I was listening to some NIN & this song has just been stuck in my brain.  :)

Weekend Update - 

    Friday:  I started my weekend off with a trip to the grocery store where all good weekends begin.  Ha!  Then I got home, unloaded the groceries & then headed out to dinner with the hubby.

We enjoyed a drink at the bar before being seated.  We got a cheeseboard to start things off & then he got Surf & Turf Kabobs & I got a Chicken Caesar Sandwich.  Everything was delcious & I was so full that I didn't have room for a malt from a local ice cream place.  :(

We then went home to watch Now You See Me 2.  You can read my review here.  Then it was off to bed where I couldn't fall asleep because I kept playing in my head conversations to have with Trouble as she wanted to see me sometime during the weekend "to make things right".  In case you are new here, Trouble is my eighteen year old stepdaughter who after many problems with, we had to kick her out of the house last November.  Her & I had not spoken face-to-face since January & the last correspondence from her was a Facebook message on Valentine's Day telling me to stay out of her life.  So, yea, needless to say I was pretty anxious/nervous about how this would go.

    Saturday:  Paul & I got up & started our day with a trip to Walmart to pick up a few things - return some unders for him, get a shelf for me, a new Blu-Ray player for the bedroom & then some work pants for him.  After that, I came home to shower up & then headed out to my aunt & uncle's to watch the Badger game with my cousin, her husband & this cutie:

We were working on rolling over.  He would SO close but just wouldn't get there.  I told him that we were not going home until he did it...he didn't but we all went home anyway.  Tee hee!

    Sunday:  got up early (I couldn't sleep) & started my chores for the day.  I got my new shelf by our bed organized & looking pretty, went through some clothes & got rid of some, made Potato Soup, watched the Packer game & talked with Trouble.  To make a long story, short:  we cried, told each other we missed the other & I asked her if she was beginning to see the light.  She said that she was & that she had a full-time job & that she just wants to fix things.  It wasn't a long conversation but it was a start & that's what I told Paul.  It's not like her & I are gonna be going shopping or anything tomorrow but we can work towards that.  She has a lot of making up to do.  After she left, it was more football, some Jimmy Fallon, coloring & such before Fear the Walking Dead, reading & bed.

So, I guess a pretty decent weekend.  :)

Happy 34th Birthday To Me...

Since tomorrow is my 34th birthday, I decided in celebration of it, I should list 34 facts about me.  So, here we go:

1.  For lunch today, I had a Big Grab bag of Funyuns, a bottle of Dew & some mini-Snickers.  I'm all about my health today, it seems.  :|

2.  I bought my first pair of leggings today since I was about 12.  They are for working out & they were on clearance.

3.  Speaking of leggings, I so badly want the tattoo version of them.  You know how the complete coverage of the arm in tattoos is called a "sleeve", I started calling the complete coverage of the leg in tattoos a "legging".  Ha!

4.  I've seen every episode of Friends at least ten times.  Paul will turn it on when it's on TV & test me on what episode it is...I'm rarely wrong.

5.  I really, really, really want to go back to Vegas real soon.  I'm almost half-tempted to ask Paul if we can go there for our second anniversary.

6.  I pretty much have tiny panic attacks on a da…

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 toApril to do so.  :) My five this week are things I am most excited about in the new Fantastic Beasts movie.  In case you didn't see the preview of it, here is one & this is one that I did not see until today:


  1.  Seeing more of Johnny Depp as Grindelwald.  Now, if you are new to these parts, I have been "forced" to be a fan of Johnny Depp as my mom is in love with him & told me that he's my dad.  Ha!  So, whenever I see him I always say to myself "hi, Dad!"  Ha!  Plus, it helps that he's an amazing actor.  I am so excited to see how he plays this character, I know that it will be fantastic!

  2.  Jacob Kowalski.  Oh my gosh, do I love this character!  Dan Fogler plays him so wonderfully.  He is just so likable &a…
