Another month starting with another Currently linkup - awhoo hoo!  So, what does Anne have going on this month?  Well, come along & check it out!  :)

Baking...nothing.  I'm not much of a baker.  Everything has to be perfectly measured & such & I don't like that, I like to just pour crap in & see what happens...that's why I like cooking more than baking.  :)

Listening...I'm going hip-hop today.  I needed a lil something fun to listen to.  Currently, Spotify is playing Funky Cold Medina.  Ha, ha!

Loving...that today we get outta work early for a luncheon/happy hour for Administrative Professionals Day.  We've been working with a skeleton crew here & we all could just a bottle glass of wine.

Planting...nothing because I kill everything.  No jokes.  I have a black thumb.  I, however, wanted to try to plant some lil flowers in some pots that the girls & I made many moons ago.

Remembering...all the fun lil projects that the girls & I did together - we painted flower pots, made refrigerator magnets, tons of canvas paintings, etc.  & now, Trouble is gonna be nineteen on Saturday & doing whatever she does (which isn't much but that's a different story) & Sunshine is at the "I-Either-Wanna-Hang-Out-With-My-Friends-Or-Stay-In-My-Room" phase.


  1. I'm not much of a fan of baking for exactly the reason you mentioned. It's so exact! I do like baking muffins though since they are so convenient and we all move them! Hope you had a great lunch/happy hour! Happy Administrative Professionals Day! I think I have a black thumb as well. After seeing some other bloggers posts today, I think I may try succulents! Thanks for linking up!

    1. Ohhh, I do like making muffins, they are so delicious. I also do like to get my bread maker out in the winter when we have our "Souper Sundays" cuz there is nothing better than freshly baked bread. Yummy!

  2. Ha, that's actually why I love baking much more than cooking :) Yay for getting out of work early - and even better if you combined that with some wine for sure...

    1. You like the exact stuff, huh? My husband is like that when he's cooking...which surprises me that he doesn't bake cuz I'm sure that he would love the exactness of everything. :)

  3. That's great you got out a bit early for a luncheon! How nice. I love being crafty with my nieces and nephew; hopefully they'll enjoy it for awhile!


    1. I loved being crafty with the girls. We actually have the hallway going upstairs covered in paintings we've done or other people have done with us. I love it. :)

  4. I am soooo behind on blog reading, it feels like it's been a lifetime since I stopped by your blog. Sooo I apologize for that! ;) I feel you on liking cooking more than baking. But now I'm reading what everyone else is baking and it kinda' has me in the mood to do so haha.

    1. You've been a busy, busy lady, so it's all good, I forgive you. :) I kinda wanna bake some banana bread...I do like to bake that. It's so delish & my youngest loves it.

  5. I'm not really a cook or a baker, but baking is sometimes easier for me because of the exact measurement thing!

    1. That's what I'm hearing a lot of - you either measure or you don't & that decides if you're a cook or baker, that's for sure. :)

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…
