Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that I saw a spark of the girl I used to know in Trouble last night.  We had a little scare yesterday, she had been texting me that she wasn't feeling well & then I get a call from Paul that his mom took her to the doctor & that they thought it may be her appendix but they had to do a CT scan & all that.  I sent a note asking if she would like me to be there or not.  I got a message back pretty much right away that said:  "come here".   I told the office manager, sent my boss an email as she was with a client & left.  Long story, short, she had an ovarian cyst that burst.  She sat & talked to me last night & she may actually have a plan for after high school!  Now, she just needs to put the plan into action.  Before she went to bed, she came over to me, gave me a hug, thanked me for coming to her & that she loved me.  There it is!  That's the girl I knew!  I've seen these sparks before & I always get hopeful that she'll remain that girl only for her to turn around & be "naughty" again.  I guess we'll see.

I am thankful...that this weekend I'll be going away for the weekend to a cottage for my cousin's bachelorette party.  There is only going to be eleven of us & there is a hot tub, a fire pit & a lake there.  I'm hoping that it'll be a peaceful weekend but I guess we'll see.  I did offer to bring Cards Against Humanity to play cuz that's always a good time.  Tee hee!

I am thankful...that tonight we have no plans.  I wanna sit on the couch watching Heroes & that's it before I eventually relocate to my bed to read & play on my Kindle.  I want an easy evening especially after yesterday afternoon/evening, I need some down time.

What are YOU thankful for on this Thursday?


  1. I'm glad your stepdaughter was able to see that yes, you will drop everything to be with her during a time of need...and that she appreciated it. Have so much fun this weekend - it sounds like it should be fab!!

    1. It was really nice to be appreciated by her, I just hope that it lasts.

      The weekend was great & much needed. :)

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…
