October Goals...

Okay, I was able to cross off half of my list for September & the ones that I didn't get to cross off, I'm gonna have to work on this month plus some.  So, here we go.

  1.  Mandie/Stepdaughter Dinner.*  Actually, I should say "Mandie/Trouble Dinner" cuz I tend to spend more time with Sunshine as of late but that's because Trouble is always with friends & I really think that her & I know don't know how to approach each other right now with all the crap that has gone on lately.  I mean, she sent me a Facebook message & I replied but nothing else besides little bits in passing.  Ugh.

  2.  Donate.*  The stuff to take to Goodwill is getting out of control & I really need to get it taken asap.  I used to have my mother-in-law take it but she'll go through it & take things out that she thinks should be kept.  Drives me nuts.  Plus, I have some blankets I want to take to the Humane Society along with some food.

  3.  Craft Project.*  Although I did do some crafting last month, I didn't finish the one project that I really wanted to finish.  So, I need to finish that up & work on some other misc. things like Mason Jar Pumpkins that I saw here.  Yup, wanna do them!  :)

  4.  Workout.*  Yup, still really slacking on this.  I have a membership at the YMCA & have not used it in months!  That's crazy.  I'm just donating to them, I guess...can I use that for number two?!  Ha!

  5.  TV/Movie Night With Paul.*  I'm sure that this will start happening about once a week starting next week - the premier of American Horror Story:  Freak Show.  I got him hooked on that show cuz I made him watch the first season on DVD with me & then we watched Asylum and Coven on TV.  But I'm pretty much convinced that the only reason he watched Coven was because one of this girlfriends, Emma Roberts, was in it.  Ha!  I'll take it though.

  6.  New Ride?  Paul mentioned that with Trouble going to a different school that when she gets her license, she may need to drive to school.  So, he suggested that she gets my car & I lease a new vehicle.  I love my car but the idea of finally getting my black Jeep Grand Cherokee does sound pretty frickin' sweet...but I just paid off my car a couple of months ago & having a car payment again doesn't sound very appealing.  So, I'll need to sit down & really hash that whole thing out.

  7.  Christmas Shopping.  I should probably get my list out & start coming up with ideas for gifts & maybe getting some.  I already have Chelsie's Christmas present but I'll get a little something more to go with it.  If I can get Chelsie done &, at least, one other person done, I'll be happy.

  8.  Wedding Pictures.  I have most of these in an album already but I ran outta room so I need to find out where my mother-in-law got the album she did so I get the rest of the pictures into an album.  Plus, I had made a picture book on Walgreens of the professional pictures & I have yet to order it cuz it's a little pricey.  I'm just gonna have to bite the bullet & get it ordered.

  9.  Anniversary Gift.  Mine & Paul's first wedding anniversary is coming up so I should think of something pretty cool to get him but I'm not sure what.  I'll have to buckle down & think & get something by the 19th.  We're going to Minnesota that weekend to celebrate so I better get on top of that.

  10.  Bathroom.  I've been wanting to redo the main floor bathroom but nothing real crazy but it just has not come to me yet.  I'm gonna have to do some serious thinking & get something down in there.  Right now, it's just a modge podge of stuff & if you know me, you should know that I don't like "just a modge podge of stuff".  Ha!

Okay, lets see how this girl does this month.  *crosses fingers*

* = goals from last month.


  1. Christmas presents already?!?! No. NOOOO. I am so poor haha

    1. I know, I hate the thought of Christmas shopping too. Ugh. :\

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…

Words of Wisdom Wednesday...

True frickin' dat!  The old phrase "think before you speak" comes to mind.  I know that sometimes emotions get the best of us & we don't think things through before we let words leave our lips.  Sometimes those words can be hurtful, embarrassing or lovable.  Lovable doesn't seem to be one that comes to mind, I'm sure, but I remember the first time that Goose told me that he loved me.  He didn't think it through & those three lil words came flying outta his mouth at a birthday party in an old friend's living room.  I could not believe it but those words were already out in the universe.

I doubt that Goose would change anything now but at the time, it scared him to say those words & he probably would have thought it through a little better but, in that case, I'm glad that he didn't.

However, I'm really trying to get the girls to think before they speak & I tell them that once words leave their lips, they may have it off thei…

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…
