Friday Five...

Happy Friday, everyone!  We are less than two weeks away from Christmas now!  Eeek!  I am not ready...I will be but right now, I am not & there is always one more thing to get or buy.  It's exhausting.  Ha!

This week my Friday Five will be realistic gifts I want since last week were gift ideas that...well...were not all that realistic.  I mean, Chris Hemsworth, not realistic.  However, if someone was able to get him for me, I will NOT turn that present down.  Ha!

1.  Charm Bracelet.  So, for the last two years, I've been on the hubby about getting me a charm bracelet.  I think that it would be a fabulous gift & the gift that keeps on giving cuz he could get me charms for different occasions.  Here are some of the charms I put on my Christmas Wish List on Amazon:

  2.  Sports Shirts for Work.  Obviously, if you know me at all, you know that I would sport my teams' colors everyday if I could.  Well, at work on Fridays we get to dress more casual & I like to sport polos & such with my teams' logos on them.  Here are a few that I picked out:


  3.  Snowmen Decorations.  I love snowmen...& penguins.  I have added penguin decorations to my list this year as well.  My decorations this time of year are more snowmen than anything else & then I can leave them out until about mid-January when I take them down for the Valentine's Day decorations.  :)

  4.  Tattoos!  I have ideas for more tattoos & my cousin & I have a plan to go get matching Cousin/Nerd Tattoos.  We are looking at something like this but we want to make some slight changes - like adding Ant-Man to the mix:

  5.  Books.  I'm always in need of new books.  I only purchase the physical books by James Patterson & I'm always behind cuz he releases new ones like every other week!  & there are many on my Kindle Wish List that I would like.  You can never have too many books...I just need more time to read them all.


  1. I have so many books on my wish list and SO little time to ever read! :)

    1. It's horrible. I really wish that I had more time. I try to get at least a chapter read of my book each night but lately, I haven't been able to even do that. Sigh. :(

  2. I love the cousin tattoo idea. :) I always want more books...and I have a bookshelf of ones still waiting to be read!

    1. Oh my gosh, I have so many books on my shelf that I need to read yet. My hubby gets upset with me when I say that I want to re-read something - "why would you do that when you have fifty books downstairs that you haven't read yet?!" Ha!

  3. awh cousin tattoos!! I love being close with a cousin, it makes life so much more fun! Those are such cute charms, too!! :) Go Wisconsin everything!!!

    1. I've always been close with two of my cousins but over the last year or so, we've become closer & I love it.

      & you know me, I love me some Wisconsin goodness! :)

  4. You absolutely need that charm bracelet, hint hint husband!!! Love to have charms that mean special things!!! I love that you're close to your cousin as I so wish I was ;-) groovy idea, geesh, how old am I? "Groovy?" Who says that? Happy weekend lovely!!!

    1. I'm really hopeful that he took the hint. *crosses fingers*

      Hey, I love the word "groovy"! :)

  5. That tattoo is so fun! Did you see Chris Hemsworth on SNL this weekend? Looking gooooood!

    1. I have the SNL on my DVR, I haven't gotten a chance to watch it yet. Soon...soon. I did watch him on The Tonight Show though. I love that beautiful man. ;)

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…
