#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.

Your Thirty-Three Year Old Self


  1. Respect, hard work and positivity are definitely all key. Good advice!

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

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that tonight after work, I'm gonna pick up some din-din for my sister & I & then we're gonna play some old school Nintendo games on her projection screen.  Awhoo hoo!  I am so happy that my sister is back home!  :)

I am thankful...for Stan Lee.  I know that I've probably said it before but this guy is pretty dang amazing with the Marvel characters & stories that came to be from his mind.  I just wish that I had that kind of brain to think up all the crazy things/beings he does.

I am thankful...that in four weeks, I'll be in Las Vegas.  Just me & my hubby hopefully catching a few shows, winning some dough & having some good grub.  We'll for sure be seeing Love by Cirque & then I wanna get him tickets to either Cris Angel or Penn & Teller as a birthday gift.  I tried talking him into seeing Britney but he hasn't caved yet, I'm hoping that he will cuz if I get to see Britney, it would be amazing cuz I love her!

I am tha…

$10 at Target...

Yea, I was able to get to Target & get some goodies so I could link-up with one of my favorites!  Awhoo hoo!  If you wanna join in, visit Liz or any of the other hosts to linkup.  :)

Here is my haul:

Sunshine complained the other night that she needed more socks so I picked her up some.

I had to hit the clearance Easter stuff & picked these up for Paul.  He loves sour stuff so thought they would be right up his alley.  :)

I picked these up for myself.  I love them SO much & since I didn't make myself an Easter bag I figured I would grab these when they were 50% off.  Yum!

My grand total:  $10.96 Almost a dollar over but that's okay, I got some needed things.
