Musical Monday / Weekend Update...

Happy Christmas (War is Over) by John Lennon

I've now decided that every Musical Monday from here to Christmas will be a Christmas tune & the best way for me to start is with my favorite Christmas song.  Anything by John Lennon is always high on my "Like List".  :)

This weekend was probably more work than anything else.  I had a five day weekend & it frickin' flew they always do.  Wednesday, Paul got me up early & we cleaned the computer room, I ran some errands & then baked in the afternoon.  Paul took Sunshine to her mother that night while I stayed home to finish up my duties & then relax in front of the DVR.

My prep area - Thanksgiving episodes of Friends playing on the Kindle.

Thursday, Paul & I slept in a bit, had some breakfast, watched American Ultra (my review is here), I finished up what I needed to bring for Thanksgiving dinner with the family, got showered & headed out.

What I brought.

Also, what I brought - tee hee!

We then came home to watch the Packers/Bears game & the only thing I'll talk about from that game is watching the number 4 being added to the Ring of Fame at Lambeau.  I'm not a fan of Brett Favre's as I'm still bitter in his departure from the Packers but I do respect what he did for us.

Friday, Paul got me up early again to clean the basement.  We went out to Home Depot to pick up some shelving & some bins & got to work.  It took quite a long time but we got 'er done & it looks great!  Everything is organized & in bins - no more cardboard boxes to be seen...except for ones that we use to wrap gifts.  Ha!  We then went out for lunch, watched Cinderella (my review is here) & then Paul went out for a friend's birthday while I turned on Christmas Vacation & put up my Winter/Christmas decorations.

Saturday, we actually played a little bit - we went out to the casino where I won $10 (yippee), did a little Christmas shopping, watched the Badger game at bar, had a delicious supper at Amber Grill, hit up a friend's bar & then went home to watch Trainwreck (my review is here).

Yesterday, we did some more organizing & this time, it was the kitchen cabinets & drawers.  We'll see how long they stay in the condition they are in right now.  Did my other usual Sunday chores, took a bath, read my book, watched The Walking Dead & hit the sack early.

What a weekend.  Eeek!


  1. and now that song is in my head. thanks! :]

    that packers game. dear. god. they better start winning.

    1. Hey, it's a good song to have in your head, I think. :)

      They NEED to start winning. This was supposed to be the easy part of the schedule. They just look terrible all around & it hurts SO bad. :(

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…
