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:

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…

Words of Wisdom Wednesday...

True frickin' dat!  The old phrase "think before you speak" comes to mind.  I know that sometimes emotions get the best of us & we don't think things through before we let words leave our lips.  Sometimes those words can be hurtful, embarrassing or lovable.  Lovable doesn't seem to be one that comes to mind, I'm sure, but I remember the first time that Goose told me that he loved me.  He didn't think it through & those three lil words came flying outta his mouth at a birthday party in an old friend's living room.  I could not believe it but those words were already out in the universe.

I doubt that Goose would change anything now but at the time, it scared him to say those words & he probably would have thought it through a little better but, in that case, I'm glad that he didn't.

However, I'm really trying to get the girls to think before they speak & I tell them that once words leave their lips, they may have it off thei…
