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 Liz.

My five this week is what I got Trouble for Christmas.  I did Sunshine's list last week.

  1.  Haters Gonna Hate Coloring Book.  As soon as I saw the cover of this coloring book, I knew that Trouble had to have it & then when it came - oh my gosh - it's SO her!  I loved it.  I actually loved it so much that I got myself one too.  They are awesome lil sayings in each picture.  I also got her a pack of colored pencils to go with it.

  2.  Himalayan Salt Lamp.  I got one of these for myself with birthday monies from my in-laws & I love it.  I wanted to give her all things that would help soothe & comfort her soul so I thought this would be a wonderful thing for her to have.

  3.  Sleep aromatherapy.  Again, more things to relax her & get a good night's sleep.  This stuff just smells so dang good.  

  4.  Concert ticket.  She got a ticket to go see Machine Gun Kelly.  This may make me old but I have NO idea who this guy is.  I typically have a good grasp on music but as I get older, I'm pulling away from the new hip hop/rap.

  5.  Gift certificate to get this thing covered up.  Hers is on the right.  She got it done illegally in an apartment somewhere.  It's horrible & I told her to get it covered up asap.  Plus, she's really not friends with the other girl so...yea.  I told her that my four year cousin could have done a better job than what she got, she didn't argue.


  1. Sounds like you've found some nice gifts!

    1. I did. She really only wanted the concert ticket & a gift certificate for the tattoo work but I told her that I wanted to get her a few other things as well. So, hopefully, she'll like her few lil things. :)

  2. Your gifts are SO thoughtful! I love that you took into consideration things to soothe her soul :). I hope she loves them :).

    1. I hope so too but if she doesn't, oh well. Ha!

  3. I love that sleep aromatherapy from B&BW. I need to get some more. :)

    1. I really like it too. I have some of the pillow mist currently & I love it so much. :)

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.
