Musical Monday/Weekend Update...

  Musical Monday - Burning Man by Spank Rock.  I've been in a hip hop mood lately & listening the Hell outta my Hip Hoppin' playlist on Spotify & here is one of my favorite tunes.  It's just so much fun, I think.

  Weekend Update:  Extended Edition - 

    Wednesday - I had the day off of work to do my baking & get my hair did.  I was pretty much busy from the moment I got outta bed until about 8:00 that night but all the treats went over well & I feel a bunch lighter from my haircut.

    Thursday - we started the Thanksgiving holiday off with my in-laws.  We had a delicious meal & delightful convo followed by pictures.

Then we headed out to my uncle's place for dinner.  It was Trouble's first time seeing most of my family in a year & she did well as did everyone else.  We had a great time especially with some entertainment brought to us by my cousin, "Z".  I, unfortunately, didn't get any pictures from over there but believe me, it was a good time.  Then my sister came over & we did a couple of mannequin challenges & played some Sorry.  A very good Thanksgiving & that, I am truly thankful for.

    Friday - Sunshine & I got up & hit the road by 10:00 to pick up my sister for an early lunch at Panera Bread & then we went to the local humane society to drop off some food, walk some dogs & play with the kitties.  We spent over an hour there which made me want to take every one of the animals home.  We then came home & I put in Christmas Vacation & decorated.  Sunshine had two friends stay the night & they were very well-behaved...but it helps that the two she had stay are afraid to wake the beast in Mama Mandie.  Tee hee!

    Saturday - I got my butt outta bed early, got ready, picked up my cousin, Jennifer, & hit the road to Appleton to have lunch & do Christmas shopping.  I got a lot done but I'm not quite finished yet.  I'm almost there, I just have a few odds & ends to finish yet.

    Sunday - I got to sleep in a little bit while Paul did most of the household chores.  I had a couple of things to do when I finally rose from my slumber but there wasn't much so I got to spend the afternoon watching American Housewife.  If you have not seen that show, you should totally watch it, it's hilarious!  Sunshine really liked it as well.  Then it was time for my usual Sunday evening - soup, shower, nails, The Walking Dead, reading & then bed.

A mighty fine weekend, if I do say so.  :)


  1. I feel like I haven't listened to hip hop in forever... I usually blasted that on Friday's on my commute to work but now that I don't do that- I forget to ever listen to it! LOL! Glad you had a good weekend with family and friends! :)

    1. Sometimes, I just get in these moods where I need to hear me some Ludacris or Eminem & blare it. However, I don't think that "T" would really appreciate hip hop so much at this point. Ha, ha!

  2. I love your hair! I forgot to tell you earlier today! Super cute! :)

    1. Thank you, sweet friend. Paul isn't too nuts about it but it's hair, it'll grow back...& then I may cut it again. Ha!

  3. I loved seeing the pics of you and the girls!
    Applause for your time that you spent at the humane society. I was actually looking at gathering some things to donate to our Animal Welfare League. They have a "wishlist" of items on their website.

    1. We had a fun time & we walked all the dogs that we could & even asked what dogs don't get walked as much & it was the pitbull breeds. You best believe we took all of them that we could! :)

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…

Weekending/Musical Monday…

I've decided to start linking up with Biana on reporting on activities of the weekend.  If you would like to join, hit her up!
So, on to my weekend...
Friday - the husband & I went out to dinner and for drinks with our friends, Ben & Christa.  & then headed back to our house for some games.  A nice quiet evening with some great people.
Saturday - my cousin, Jennifer, & I decided to take a last minute trip to Appleton for some shopping & such.  We had her youngest with her & he was perfect!  We had so much fun & while at Scheels, I educated him about Bucky Badger because he kept going over to the Wisconsin Badger stuff & by the end of our trip in that store, he was calling out "Bucky!"  My heart could not be prouder.

When we got back into town, Paul & I went out for a couple glasses of wine & then headed back home to relax & watch Baby Driver.  You can read my review here.

Sunday - typical Sunday, spent the morning hanging out in be…
