The Blog-tember Challenge: Day 7…

I love these prompts & I thank you so much Bailey for doing these for the month.  If you would like to join the fun, head on over to Love Bailey Jean to linkup & such!

Today’s prompt:  five things that bring you joy.

1.  Family.  My family has always been pretty dang important to me & as I get older, I'm realizing that more & more.  I have a wonderful family that supports me & loves me & I love spending time with them especially my lil cousins, I love watching them grow.

2.  Friends.  I have many friends around me & some that I consider my family.  I mean, I have nieces & nephews who are not blood but that's the way I see them.  They are all important to me & I would do anything for them.  I even still call my uncle's ex-wife my "aunt", her husband my "uncle" & their son my "cousin".  That's what they are to me & that's it.  Plain & simple.

3.  Music.  First of all, I would have KILLED anyone that did that to one of my cassettes back in the day!  Tee hee!  I have always loved music.  I remember sitting in our den when I was younger listening to my parents' records specifically Led Zeppelin & Golden Earring.  Even now, just sitting down & listening to a record brings a smile to my face.  :)

4.  Books.  I love to read & the older I get, the more that's all I really want to do.  I have piles of physical books that I haven't read yet.  Books downloaded to my Kindle that I haven't read yet.  I have books everywhere & they are all fabulous & make me happy.  Sometimes when I'm feeling sad, I down down to my room in the basement & just look at my bookshelf full of books.  Tee hee!

5.  Wisconsin Badgers, Milwaukee Brewers & Green Bay Packers.  Sports make me happy...well, unless my team is sucking it up big time then I'm not so happy.  But my pride for my teams & my state run deep.  I love them all & when we win, it's always a good day.  :)


  1. Ahhhh. I LOVE your 5 things and could have written the same five. I almost wrote Baseball for one of my five. In fact I did and then I erased it and wrote something else. I was happy to see it on your list. Have a wonderful day. :)

    1. Well, girl, I think that we should be friends then! Ha! I'm gonna jump on over & check out your five & maybe your five would have been options for me. :)

  2. Oooh, I love reading too! What are some of your favorites from this summer?

    1. I was actually a total nerd all summer & read the Harry Potter series for the second time. I did read Harry Potter & the Cursed Child & if you're a HP fan, it's worth the read. It's a real quick easy read. :)

  3. I think if you changed #5 to my fur babies, we'd have the same list :)

    1. Oh yea, fur babies. How could I have forgotten my fur babies?!?!

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.
