Thankful Thursday...


  I am thankful...that I got to spend some quality time with my Bestie, Kim, last night.  We met up for dinner & chatted away about this & that & then we headed over to Maurice's to do a little shopping.

  I am thankful...that while shopping at Maurice's, I found a top that I really liked & didn't even look at the price tag just to learn that when I checked out it was on sale/clearance I got it for $5.28.  I don't think that Maurice's credit card was used to such a small purchase.  Ha!

  I am thankful...that Trouble contacted me yesterday & that she is thinking about spreading her wings & getting out from underneath her grandmother (my MIL) & her father (my hubby).  I feel that my MIL & hubby, while they think they are helping, keep Trouble dependent on them.  Trouble wants to move to where her boyfriend lives.  He lives about two hours away & she really likes the area & has started looking for a job there.  I feel that it would be beneficial for her to do so.  She needs to get out there & try to be independent & grow up.

  I am thankful...that I got my 2016 photo book done & ordered.  I cannot wait to get it.  It's always fun to look back through photos & I have made photo books through Walgreens since 2010 & they are all fabulous.  :)


So, what are some things that YOU
are thankful for on this Thursday?!

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.
