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 are ways that I am a nerd.


  1.  I love to read.  & yes, I was that kid that would go to the library to get a stack of books to read.  & when I say a stack, I mean a big ol' frickin' stack.  All RL Stein, baby!  Ha!  My mom would pick me up books at garage sales or Goodwill, I had tons of books & still have tons of books.  I love books!  :)


  2.  I want to go to Comic Con.  There is gonna be one in Indiana in a couple of months & Charlie Cox from Daredevil is gonna be there & I would love to see him cuz I'm a sucker for anything Marvel especially of late with me watching Daredevil, Jessica Jones & Luke Cage.


  3.  Speaking of Marvel...it started with Thor & went from there.  Thor is still my favorite (I even have a sticker on my car of his hammer) but I am really liking Black Panther & Jessica Jones.  I mean, can we please talk for a minute about Jessica Jones?!  She is such a total badass, I love her!  I want to be her!  I am not even kidding you right now!



  4.  My love for Harry Potter.  This love came on fast & is just getting to be more & more relevant.  I was late to the party on this one.  All the books were out by the time I started reading the series & only the last two or three movies were not out yet.  I have since read the series twice, gone to the Wizarding World in Orlando, purchased myself a Bellatrix wand & many other Harry Potter themed goodies.  I am even thinking about getting a tattoo.  I love HP!  :)


  5.  First the show, then the "graphic novels".  I have devoured both.  I have the show on DVD/BluRay, I have ten collections of the novels, I have a lil Daryl figurine that guards my desk & I have a shirt sporting Negan.  I even almost bought a jacket because it looked like Negan's...I am now kicking myself for not buying it.  *sigh*

So, do I have a Nerd Card?!  You best believe it & I'm proud to be a nerd!  :)

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…
