Musical Monday...

Welcome to my Nightmare by Alice Cooper

This is probably my favorite Halloween tune.  I remember after trick-or-treating, I would come home & watch some music videos on VH1 & they always played this one.  Love it.  I cannot wait for Halloween, I'll be getting stuff for my costume tonight.  I'm gonna be a pretty lil fairy.  :)

As for my weekend, it was pretty good.  Friday night, Paul & I went out with my cousin, her fiancee & some of their friends (which were all approximately ten years younger than us) & went to this haunted forest walk.  We had to wait for about three hours but the twenty minute walk was totally worth it!  I was scared.  Eeek!  And, before that, my cousin officially asked me to be one of her bridesmaids:

Saturday, I went on my first ever horseback riding adventure.  The ride was two hours long.  I'm glad that I did it to say that I've done it but I don't think think that I'll do it again.  My body hurt SO bad when I was done & it still does.  Ouch!  But it was a beautiful morning & my horse, Doc, wasn't too bad of a fella.  However, he did take me off-roading once.  : \

& then when Doc decided to stop for a snack, we got passed.

Doc & my shadow.

Saturday night, Paul & I went over for supper & convo with two of our favorite people - Jeremy & Gladys.  We sat in front of the fire just chatting away.  At one point, we were all laughing so hard that my stomach hurt & I almost peed my pants.  Tee hee!

Sunday was the usual - sleeping in & chores.  Oh, & watching the Packers lose!  Boo!  Not happy about that but the rest of the weekend was just what I needed.


  1. can't wait to see your costume!

    1. I started working on my fairy tutu last night & it's gonna be adorable! I cannot wait! :)

  2. Congrats on being a bridesmaid! I just picked out my bridesmaid dress on Sunday for my friends wedding. $310 for a dress ahhhhh it's an expensive honor indeed! Also, I haven't gone horse back riding in years and now I really want to!

    1. $310 for a bridesmaid dress?!?! Eeek! If my cousin thinks that I'm gonna spend that much on a dress, I'm gonna beat her! Tee hee!

  3. what an awesome weekend!! i want to go horseback riding- I haven't done that in forever!

    1. It hurt my old bones. Tee hee! I've got the hips & knees of a 90 year old lady & it just was not good for them. But I am glad that I did it. :)

  4. That is one of my fave Halloween songs too! I'm so jealous of those beautiful horses!

    1. They were all beautiful horses. There was one that didn't ride with us & her name was Miley, she was gorgeous.

  5. Such fun! That is a great idea for asking you to be her bridesmaid. :)

    1. I know! When I asked her to be one of mine, I just sent her a text & was like "you're gonna be a bridesmaid". Ha! However, I rocked their bridesmaid gifts at the rehearsal dinner. :)

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…
