2014 Review Extravaganza: January, February & March...

Have I told you how much I love to do these link-ups?  If not, I love them.  I think they are so much fun & a way for me to check out new bloggers & for new bloggers to check out me.  I love it!  Here are some of my favorite moments of January, February & March of 2014:


Delish popcorn & a pumpkin spice martini at one of the coolest places on Earth - St. James Cocktail Lounge.  Such a cool setting.  The owner/bartender is amazing.  A very cool place.

All girls' painting night.  Us big girls didn't get to paint but the young ladies did & they made some great pieces of art.  :)


Working out with Sunshine at the YMCA...we need to get our butts back out there, that's for sure.

Valentine's Day flowers from my hubby.  :)


Celebrating my hubby's 38th birthday the only way we know how - as Darth Vader.  Tee hee!

Bowling with these cool kids.  :)


  1. That pumpkin spice martini looks and sounds delicious -- what a great way to start the year! Sounds like you guys had a fun few months so far :D Thanks so much for linking up with us!

    1. Oh my gosh, that martini is the BEST! I have had a few too many before. Tee hee! :)

  2. The bar I work at does pumpkin spiced martinis! Come visit and it's on the house ;)

    1. I know, right?! I never understood the whole excitement over it until last year. Yea, I'm a late bloomer. Ha!

  4. Should I admit that I read that as a popcorn & pumpkin spice martini instead of 2 separate thoughts there? Oh dear! I'm not sure those would be good as one thing but 2 things.. yum!

    1. Ha! I may have to dip the popcorn into the martini the next time we're able to stop there. All for you. :)

  5. Looks like it was a great start to the year. I so need to get back to working out myself. I always go in phases. Guess it is almost a new year, I had better mentally prepare myself to start then :) Thank you so much for linking up! So glad you did and nice to meet you

    1. Nice to meet you as well, Ms. Emmy! :)

      I really need to get back to working out, it's been a really long time since I've hit the treadmill so I think that I really need to get my butt back in there.

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.
