Things I Did...

...besides blogging.

Since I've pretty much been dead to the blogging world the last two weeks, here's what I've been doing besides blogging:

  ~  Started reading If I Stay.  Oh my gosh, this book started off with a bang.  I mean, I knew some of the story but didn't think that it would hit right away.  Wow.  I'm really enjoying it & almost done.

  ~  Work has been absolutely insane!  Typically, things slow down for us in December & then pick back up in January.  That was not the case this year.  It's been CRAZY!

  ~  Cheering on the Packers.  GO PACK GO!

  ~  Wrapping gifts for hours.  No jokes, hours.  The day I sat down & did the most wrapping, I was able to watch every single Christmas themed episode of Friends & still have a couple left to wrap.  Too much!

  ~  Had a pamper afternoon the day before Christmas Eve by getting a hot stone massage & then a manicure - gel polish is pretty damn cool...except for the whole removal process.

  ~  Went to Christmas Eve lunch at the in-law's & then hosted Christmas Eve for my family.

  ~  Tried not to murder Trouble for the trouble she's been getting into.  One would think that not being able to drive for over three weeks would get them to stop smoking pot, not this child!  Sigh.

  ~  Enjoyed my favorite gift - record player.  However, I have to find a different Thriller record cuz the one I have is all scratched.  :(

  ~  Saw some movies - the final Hobbit movie & Unbroken.

  ~  Won at the casino...lost at the casino.

  ~  Lost a childhood friend.

  ~  Spent lots of time with family & friends.

But now, I hope to be back to the world of the blogging & get back to reading your posts.  I've missed y'all.

    1. Thank you. It was quite a shock but after doing three tours overseas, he wasn't quite the same. He took his own life almost two weeks ago. :(

  2. I just started reading If I Stay! I'm loving it so far! I've read like 4-5 books within the past week or two. I'm on a roll!

    1. Damn, you are on a roll, girl! I wish I had the time to read that much! Maybe someday I will. Ha! :)

  3. That sounds like a busy week or two! But it also sounds fulfilling. ;)

    1. HooHaa - cracks me up! :)

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…
