#Blogtober: A Letter To My Younger Self...


Dear Mandie,

You're now sixteen...didn't think that life could get much better than being a teen, did ya?  Well, let me tell ya, you'll have some ups & downs in life but try to keep your head up.  Try to be positive & always find the silver lining cuz there always is one.

When you hit your twenties, enjoy it to the fullest...well, maybe not the fullest, still be smart but just try to have a good time because in your thirties, you'll have an encounter with Trouble.  I won't get into too much detail but be prepared, you'll be thrown for a loop.  But when Greg (yes, you'll meet a fella named Greg who will be like your big brother) & all the other folks call about wanting to hook you up with your "future husband", do it!  The sooner you meet him, the better.

Other than that, just continue down the path you're on.  Be respect, work hard & be positive.  Those three things will get you far in life.

Love,
Your Thirty-Three Year Old Self

    1. Now, that I'm an "old lady", there is no better advice than that, I think. :)

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…
