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.

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.
