Musical Monday...

The Thanksgiving Song by Adam Sandler

I love this song.  It's one of my favorite things about Thanksgiving - this song...okay, & spending time with the family.  Geez.

Anywho, the weekend was pretty decent.  Only had a few bumps in the road with the offspring but, all in all, a decent weekend.

I saw Mockingjay twice - once on Friday with Paul, Jake & Courtney after a delicious dinner at Milwaukee Burger.  YUMMMMMMY!  & then on Saturday, after a day of shopping with Sunshine & AT.  Trouble wanted me to go see it again yesterday but I wasn't ready to see it for a third time & I really just wanted to sit home & finish up my chores.  Trouble did convince Sunshine to go with her but that all crumbled after a visit to Walmart & McDonald's for them.  They cannot get along for more than an hour or two.  Ugh.

I was so proud of my shopping trip, I got a lot done for Christmas presents.  Awhoo hoo!  I'm so proud of myself for really being ahead of schedule.  Yippee!

Well, I'm gonna go listen to The Thanksgiving Song one more time...okay, maybe TWO more times.  Ha!


  1. I must have missed the part where you said whether or not you liked the movie!

    1. Oh yea, I probably should have said that, huh? Ha! I did like it. I cried a couple of times & it was pretty drawn out in parts but I liked it. I do, however, think that Catching Fire is still my favorite. That was my favorite book of the series as well.

    2. Also my fav book of the series!

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 to Karli (I like the new button, by the way!) &/or Liz.

My five this week are five Christmas gifts that I got for Sunshine.
  1.  Adidas pants.  I had more thing to get her & she mentioned at her gymnastics meeting that she wanted a pair of these.  I got online & picked her up a pair ending my Christmas shopping for her.
  2.  Paper lanterns.  They were on sale one day at The Walmart & I couldn't resist getting them for her to hang in her bedroom.

  3.  A wax warmer & melts.  She has her bedroom upstairs & we don't allow candle burning up there were it cannot be watched.  Plus, with the mess a teenage girl makes, something is bound to catch on fire.  Anywho, so I got her this warmer and some melts that she can use to make things smell all nice & stuff.  :)

  4.  A Pink sweatshirt & matching socks.  I …

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that I got my Christmas cards all out last Friday & that people have already been receiving them!  Now, it's my turn to receive some cards to hang on the front door.  I love receiving them & looking at all the smiling faces & reading the fun "family letters" especially from my aunt, Nellie.  :)

I am thankful...that I got to have a nice evening with my mom & her boyfriend last night.  I had to drop off Sunshine's Christmas gift & pick up her pet carrier so I could take all three cats to the vet this morning so she fed me one of my favorite meals that I never get to have at home - tuna casserole.  & then when I got home, Jill was on her way over so I chatted with her, helped Sunshine with her outfit for tomorrow (she has to dress up as the gymnastics team has a meet this weekend) & then to bed to read & such.

I am thankful...for this coloring book that I got Trouble as part of her Christmas present.  I looked through it yes…

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 to Karli &/or April.

My five this week is ways to stay warm when it's frickin' freezin' in Central Wisconsin.

  1.  Drinking warm beverages - coffee, cocoa, tea.  Add some Rum Chata or Baileys for a lil extra warmth.  

  2.  Set yourself on fire...or sit really close to a fire &/or space heater.

  3.  Take a long hot bath maybe enjoy your warm beverage as like Olaf is doing.

  4.  Bundle up like Randy does in A Christmas Story - "I can't put my arms down!"

  5.  Just stay in your nice warm bed snuggled up with your cats & a good book or Netflix.
