2014 Review Extravaganza: April, May & June...


I did my first 5K.  I only walked it but it was raining & cold.  I felt pretty proud of myself afterwards though.  :)

Got the dining room decorated after Paul & I painted it.


Trouble turned 16.  She is a total pain in my ass but I love that kid & I'm just hopeful that by the time she's 17, she's beginning to make better choices for herself & everyone else.  *crosses fingers*

Sunshine's dance recital.  She is such a lil cutie & I love watching her recitals.  I am, however, upset that she gave up ballet this year, when I watched her last year I just cried cuz she was just so beautiful.


Our trip to Six Flags: Great America for Trouble's birthday.  I have officially realized that while I love rollercoasters, I can no longer ride them...even with aid of Dramamine.  Sigh.

This lil guy entered our lives.  My baby boy, Tyrion Richard.  Yes, we finally gave him a middle name & it's Richard because he's been a real dick lately.  Ha!  He's so naughty & big but we all love him...except for Chandler, she still hates him.  Tee hee!


  1. She looks so beautiful in her dance recital dress!!!!!

    1. Thank you. I cried when she did her ballet number...both times I saw it. I know that ballet isn't as fun as musical theater & jazz but it's just so beautiful.

  2. That is a freaking cute kitten.

    Congratulations on your first 5K!

    1. I always tell Tyrion that he's lucky he's cute cuz he sure is naughty! Ha, ha!

  3. Regan is so beautiful! And Tyrion is a cutie! :).

    P.S. I'm proud of you for your 1st 5k! You rock!

    1. Tyrion is a lil dick! Ha! He's lucky he's cute. Tee hee!

      I would really like to do some more 5k walks but I really gotta get my butt in shape.

  4. Way to go on the 5k, lady!

    I love your nicknames for the girls, too funny!!!!

    Stopping by from the linkup!

  5. Awe, she gave up ballet, so sad. I still wish I never would have! Such a cutie kitty and I giggled at the middle name and the reason for it :)

    1. Yea, I was so sad when she decided to give up ballet but I know that as you get further down the line, ballet is very time consuming & she wanted something more "upbeat & fun". Sigh.

      Yea, Tyrion is a dick...I mean, Richard. Ha!

  6. Oh man, I remember all the bad decisions I made at 16. Good luck with Trouble :) Sunshine looks absolutely adorable in her outfit! Bummer she decided to give up ballet. I love that you gave your kitty the middle name Richard, for when he is a dick ha ha!

  7. I can still do roller coasters just not spinny rides.. sad how our bodies change as we get older. I grew up outside of Chicago so have been to Six Flags Great America many times! Your daughter is a pretty ballerina.

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…
