Musical Monday...

Bang Bang by Will.I.Am

This song was one that I heard during Sunshine's dance recital this weekend & not only did I dig the song, the dance was one of my favorites.

It was a really tiring weekend.  I am just exhausted today & I am so excited about my vacation this weekend, it cannot come soon enough.

Friday night, I ran some errands & then got to meet some of Paul's friends that were visiting from Iowa.  They were just as fabulous as he had told me they were!  Then the hubby & I went out to the casino for supper & for me to lose money.  I ended up sitting in the lobby of the casino when I had had enough & read some of my book (Paper Towns).  I should have just pocketed the money Paul gave me & did that from the very beginning because it was just not my night.

Saturday, was day one of the dance recital.  They do two performances on Saturday & two on Sunday.  It's a very busy weekend.  It's nice now that Sunshine is older cuz she gets herself ready - hair & makeup - & all I have to is get pictures.  Easy enough.  Paul & I went to the Saturday afternoon performance with my grandparents.  I frickin' cried during "K's" first number & then again when Sunshine got on stage.  I'm just so proud of these girls & the hard work they put in & how well they did.  They both had two pieces.

After the afternoon showing, a bunch of us went to local bar & grill for an early dinner before the girls had to jet again for the night performance.  I chased "D" all around while my husband put "C" on a gambling machine & he won $5.  Ha!  

That night, it was decided by "C" that we would have a fire, so we did.  He helped Paul build the fire & get wood & even ran to fetch beverages when he was asked.  I ran & got goods to make s'mores & we tried Reese's PB Cup s'mores, amazing!  When the girls got back from their evening performance, they each had a s'more & went off to bed.

Sunday, it was off to the races again.  This time we had lunch plans with my mom, aunt & cousin.  A quick lunch at McDonald's & then off.  Again, the girls did a great job & I still cried but not as much this time around.  Then I was able to stay home the rest of the eve after dropping Trouble & her boyfriend off to watch the last performance & picking up supper for Paul & I.  

It was a busy weekend but I got some great pictures from it, here are a few:

Our new gardner, "C".

Sunshine as Cinderella (in Shrek) for her Musical Theater performance.

She wanted to do something silly & she chose "Rockstar" pose.  Ha!


  1. Aww! She's so cute and reminds me of my dance days twenty years ago, lol.

    1. Thank you. She loves dance so much & I'm thankful that she has something that she's passionate about & that keeps her out of trouble. Ha!

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…

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…
