Blog-tember Challenge #9...

Today's prompt:  Write a letter to sixteen year old you.  Any advice or funny stories?

I never liked doing letters to a younger me cuz I wouldn't want to tell myself to do or be anything different.  I feel that everything that I experienced & did back then helped shape me into the person I am today - the good & the bad.  So, I guess I would just tell my sixteen year old self to go with her gut & do what she feels is right.

I know, kinda boring but I wasn't a bad kid.  There really isn't anything I would take back cuz there was just nothing that was that bad, you know?  Yea, I was one of those kids.  I hung out with the kids who's parents were lawyers & doctors & judges, so decent kids.

I will tell one story that makes me giggle to this day though.  We went though a phase where we "ganked" things.  Some stupid street signs or whatever.  Well, we had a big plan that we were gonna get one of those flashing lights from a barricade.  We sat & planned this thing & thought of scenarios, all of this (if we would have put this much thought into our school work, we would have all been on highest honors - ha!).  Well, one scenario we didn't think of:  we didn't have the right tools to get the light off of the barricade so we just threw the whole dang thing in the trunk & we couldn't close the trunk so we drove around a little bit with it flashing in the trunk.  We eventually ended up just leaving it somewhere as we couldn't much be bringing an entire barricade to one of our homes.  Tee hee!


  1. Hahahaha you store an entire barricade. I would tell 16 year old me to be much nicer to my mom!

    1. Yup, the whole damn thing...we thought we had a master plan...we did not. Tee hee!

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…

Tuesday Talk...

You wanna talk about something today?  Well, linkup with some fabulous girls for some Tuesday Talk - Jessicaor any of the other hosts.  :)

The only thing I can think about talking about is food, breakfast food to be exact.  I want to fill up on some delish carbs in the form of hash browns, toast, French toast & a sausage patty (just to mix it up a bit).  I want to be sitting at a cute lil diner chomping away...but sadly, I am not, I am at work instead.  Boo!

I am just thinking about all the things I would rather be doing instead of work, like, that in six weeks, the hubby & I will be on our way to Vegas.  The closer we get the more excited I get to be away for a week straight...I may never come back.  Maybe I'll become a cocktail waitress & leave again.  That would be the bestest thing ever...okay, maybe not the bestest but it would be pretty dang cool.

Since this post is just all over the place, I might as well talk about the fact that it's Valentine's Day.  I…

It's Wednesday So That Means...

So, back in the day, there was a linkup about weekly lessons.  I really liked it but since it has crumbled & the linkup is no more.  :(  I really liked doing it so I'm going to continue doing it, join me!
I've Learned...that when Sunshine gets an attitude with me & I make her go to her room & rethink how she speaks to me, she comes down ten minutes later & is sweet as pie.  I even got three "I Love Yous" from her in a span of about thirty minutes.  Ha!  
I've Learned...that I need to make another attempt at the Grand Mac from McDonald's.  I tried to do it last week but did not finish it (I finished the fries & the apple pie though).  That was not good enough for my grandfather so I need to have another go at it so I think that since it's just me & Sunshine again tonight, we're gonna pick up McDonald's again & give it another shot.

I've Learned...that once the weather warms up, even if just for a lil bit, I think Spring…
