Thankful Thursday...


I am thankful...that after my Purple Sands candle is through at work, I get to light up my Pumpkin Spice one & I am SO excited.  Bring on the Fall!  Awhoo hoo!

I am thankful...that I did my dinner menu for next week & we get to start having Souper Sundays again.  We are kicking off this season with one of my favorites - Potato Soup.  I'm also thinking that I'll make some homemade bread to go with it.  Nothing better.  Yum!

I am thankful...that regular season football starts tonight.  I need football in my life like you wouldn't believe & preseason does not cut it for me.  I need to see my boys out on the field - Aaron Rodgers, Randall Cobb, Eddie Lacy, Clay Matthews, etc.  GO PACK GO!!!!

I am thankful...that my sister is in town from Colorado & that we got to spend some time together last night.  She came over for supper, then we took Sunshine to do a lil shopping, got some ice cream & then hung out on the front porch looking through photo books.


What are YOU thankful for?

  1. Souper Sundays sounds like my kind of thing. I could eat soup every day. :)

    1. We love Souper Sundays. However, if the Packers lose on Souper Sunday, we are not allowed to have that soup for the rest of the season or on a day that they are playing. Tee hee!

  2. So wonderful that your sister was in town. Also, great job with meal prepping-something I'm trying to be more consistent with

    1. When my stepdaughter is in school, it's so easy to plan meals because I know that she is going to be home for dinner on the weeknights unless she's at gymnastics. The summer, she's all over the place.

  4. I was running errands for work in the city and passed a bar with the NFL game on. It was Friday morning here, and 2 guys were in there drinking beer and watching. It took all the self-control I could muster not to join them :)

    1. Oh, I bet! It would be hard for me to resist as well. Start the day off with a drink & some football, I say that's a good start! :)

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.
