& Poof Christmas Is Done...

Can you believe how quickly Christmas came & gone?!  Holy cow!  I had a total of five days off from work & they flew by just as fast as a regular weekend.  I just don't understand why that has to happen.  Anywho, here is a breakdown of my holiday:


  Thursday:  my sister was home from Colorado so she came over and helped me bake & decorate cutout cookies all while playing the Christmas episodes of Friends & Gilmore Girls.  We had such a fun time with lots of laughs.


  Friday:  I was up early, had some coffee & convo with my brother & his girlfriend, then went off to The Walmart to get last minute goodies so much so that the bank was like "wait a minute" & put a hold on my debit card.  Ha!  Then I came home finished a few things & then retired to my room & watched some American Housewife until my friend, Christa, came over bringing me the last bit of my Christmas present (the bag above).  I loved it so much that I threw a big ol' hug on her.  So awesome!


  Saturday aka Christmas Eve:  we started our day off with a trip to Green Bay to watch the Packers take on the Vikings. Paul & I went with my cousin, Jennifer, & my uncle, Darren.  It was so much fun, the weather was beautiful & the Packers won.  Then when we got home, we decided to do our gift exchange with the girls so Trouble came over & we did presents.  We were all pretty beat so it was an early bedtime.


  Sunday aka Christmas Day:  we ventured over to the in-law's for lunch & presents.  My MIL just had hip surgery so Paul made a ham while his dad made the rest of the fixins.  We ate lots & then got all settled in for gifties.  Then we went home & got ready to host my side of the family.  Again, lots of food, plenty of convo & laughs & time in "Z"'s hunting blind trying to "hunt" Tyrion.  "Z" kept telling me to focus.  Ha, ha!

I had a great holiday with all my friends & family, I got some wonderful gifts but the time spent with all my favorite people was the best thing ever.  :)

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…
