Thankful Thursday...

Another Thursday?!  What the Hell?!  Wasn't it just Thursday?!  Gee whiz!  Time sure does fly.

Anywho, here are the things that this gal is thankful for this week:

  1.  Trouble turning 17.  We are 364 days away from her being an adult who can move out!  Ha, ha!  All kidding aside, this year has been overly tough on our family with how Trouble has decided to act.  I don't know if she's seen the light or her boyfriend is making a difference or what but things have been better.  They aren't great but they are better & I'm SO thankful for that.

The very first picture I ever took of Trouble - she was 12.

The latest picture I look of her with her birthday gift (a long-board).

  2.  Northern Invasion.  Let me start off by saying that I've never been to a music fest before, I've been to plenty of concerts but never a fest.  So, I am pretty dang excited about hitting up Northern Invasion on Saturday.  It really crept up on me so quickly that I didn't even get a chance to make a Northern Invasion playlist on Spotify.  Ugh!  Out of all the bands (you can find the lineup here), I'm most excited to see The Pretty Reckless.  So, I'll be at that stage to get a good viewing area asap.  Ha!  I know lots of folks that will be heading there so that's going to make it even more fun.  Now, I just have to decide what to wear.  :\

  3.  Studying with Sunshine.  Last night after Trouble's birthday celebration, Sunshine had to study for a Social Studies test & she asked me to study with her because I "make it more fun".  Really, I make studying fun?  Dang!  We went through the flashcards once to refresh both our memories, then another time with her answering, she then worked on some other homework & before she went to bed, we hit the flashcards one more time.  I'm hopeful that she'll do well on her test.  *crosses fingers*

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…
