Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...for Britney Spears.  I love her.  I'm listening to her & the music never gets old.  She's fabulous.  :)

I am thankful...that one of the attorneys went to McDonald's this morning for breakfast sammaches & he brought me a Sausage Biscuit.  It really hit the spot.  So yummy.

I am thankful...for rainy days as they are just nice days to sit in & read or watch Netflix.  I was supposed to go to the wine party tonight but I am really not looking forward to it.  Just wanna sit home in bed & watch Big Little Lies while coloring.  I am such a big dull dud lately.  Ha!

I am thankful...that I got to meet my friend's new kitten, Chloe.  She is so tiny & adorable & I just wanted to squeeze her!  However, then I remember that I have three at home & I'm still paying on a vet bill.  :\

What are some things that YOU are  thankful for on this Thursday?!

My Thoughts On...

Goodreads Summary:  A murder...a tragic accident...or just parents behaving badly?  What's indisputable is that someone is dead.  But who did what?  Big Little Lies follows three women each at a crossroads.

My Summary:  Mean Girls for big girls.

I loved this book.  It had me keep turning pages as quickly as I was able to.  It was SO good.  I've never read any books by Liane Moriarty before & the reason I read this one was because I saw the preview of the show on HBO & anything with Shailene in it, I cannot resist.  So, I gave the book a try & I am SO glad that I did.

I thought the connection between these three VERY different ladies was amazing & then before they know it, they are all connected in a way that nobody could see coming.  Insane.

I started watching the show & have only seen the first episode & I thought for sure that Nicole Kidman would be playing Madeline & Reese Witherspoon would be playing Celeste.  I was wrong, they swapped them in …

It's Wednesday So That Means...

So, back in the day, there was a linkup about weekly lessons.  I really liked it but since it has crumbled & the linkup is no more.  :(  I really liked doing it so I'm going to continue doing it, join me!
I've learned...that saying "I told you so" doesn't feel as good as one would think.  Trouble is having some, well, trouble again & now that she's nineteen when we have no control over her, Paul wants to do something.  There is nothing we can do, she's an adult now & she's gonna live life the way she feels. I just want her kept away from Sunshine & me.  I thought maybe she would get better with age but sadly, she is not, she's getting worse & it breaks my heart but I can only do so much & I'm tired.  :(
  I've learned...that shopping for Father's Day gifts can be stressful.  I got Paul done real quicklike, my grandfather & father-in-law, however, is another story.  I have NO idea what to get either of them.  T…

Musical Monday / Weekend Update...

Musical Monday - All My Love by Major Lazer.

Weekend Update - 

    Friday:  after work, we went to pick up Sunshine's friend & then my old car for Paul as he smacked a deer with his car on Thursday night.  Then we headed to our friends' house for a cookout & fire.  Delicious grub & we were all SO full.  Then had a couple of drinks around the fire while I got to play DJ - I love playing DJ.

Saturday:  I got to sleep in & then enjoy some coffee out on the front porch with my kitties & got a call from Miss Sunshine that she got her first big girl job!  She'll be assisting my sister.  My sister is a manager at a grocery store.  Sunshine is SO excited!  I'm really proud of her.  Then we took her out to her friend's while Paul & I went out to dinner at our new favorite place - Father Fats.  It was a great day.

Sunday:  another day to sleep in & Paul had done most of the chores so I didn't have much to do so I sat in our room coloring while lis…


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

Planning...really nothing.  It's kinda weird.  We really don't have any big plans for this summer except for a possible hip surgery for me.  So, nothing exciting.  Maybe an all girls Brewer game would be in the cards though - that's always a good time.  :)

Wishing...that my new Kindle was already in my hands.  I pre-ordered the newest one & it comes today & I cannot wait!  I am so excited.  I typically get a new one every two years but the last one I got, I really didn't like because you couldn't do the swipe text feature.  I know First World Problems, right?  I always get my moneys worth outta them & treat them real good that I can pass them on to someone else.

Learning...that my husband is finally seeing the light.  We've had issues with Trouble for a long time & she's not getting any better…

My Thoughts On...

IMDB's summary:  "Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princes of the Amazons, trained warrior.  When a pilot crashes & tells of the conflict in the outside world, she leaves home to fight a war to end all wars, discovering her full powers and true destiny".

My summary:  "a badass chick comes to help end a war & rocks the lil outfit while kicking much ass!"

Now, if you're never been around these parts, you need to know that I am a nerd.  However, I'm a Marvel girl.  I didn't see Wonder Woman's introduction in Superman vs. Batman for two reasons:

    1.  I'm not a fan of Superman; and
    2.  I'm not a fan of Ben Affleck playing Batman.

But as I'm all about Girl Power & that I have a Wonder Woman coffee mug, I'd give it a shot.  It didn't disappoint.  It was action packed and Gal Gadot is gorgeous & Chris Pine is adorable.

Is it something I'd go see at the theater again?  No.  Will I buy it when it comes o…

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's site to do so.

My five this week are recent Pins from Pinterest.

  1.  The Beatles...need I say more?!  This picture is actually the background on my computer at work right now.  While I love the guys at all points, there is just something about the clean look that I like the best especially with John.  :)

  2.  When he said this in Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2, I lost it cuz I know that feeling all too well.  Yondu, you are the coolest!

  3.  Tee hee!

  4.  Yup, that's me.  It would be truly nice if more people were like that.

  5.  I am really enjoying this book & I cannot wait to finish it & watch the show.  It has my girl, Shailene, in it.  I <3 her!  She's so stinkin' adorable & I am excited to see her play Jane.  :)

Makes Me Happy Pics…

Another month has come & gone & there were some great things that made me happy throughout the month of May:

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that today was the final day that I had to take Sunshine to school EVER!  Awhoo hoo!  Next year, she'll be at the high school as a sophomore & until she is able to drive to school, her grandfather will be taking her.  So, I am thankful for the extra ten minutes to sleep I'll have every morning.  Yippee!

I am thankful...that Trouble is not really engaged even though her Facebook says she is...although, could I see her jumping right into another relationship right after ending a previous one?  Absolutely.  That's what she does, she's just like her mother.  :\

I am thankful...that I have a dinner date set with two of my good friends from high school tomorrow night at one of my favorite places, Father Fats.  It's tapas style & neither of my friends have been there before.  I am really excited to share this delicious place with them & maybe be able to have another Electric Mermaid drink - so delish!

So, what are some things that you are thankful …
