Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...for kind words & support.  Trouble & Sunshine's maternal uncle texted me today to find out what is going on with Trouble as he's seen somethings on Facebook & Snapchat.  I filled him in.  His exact words were:  "I can't take sides but I'm going to guess you were just trying to do the right thing and she didn't like it.  You have my support, Mandie."  He is a great guy & "hearing" those words from him means more than he realizes.

I am thankful...that today we had our Secret Santa lunch & I got to enjoy some good grub, give a gift, receive a gift & just hang out with some of my favorite ladies on this planet.  We also got to see "B2", my coworker, Danielle's baby.  He had a raccoon on the butt of his jumper & I just wanted to eat him up, he was so dang adorable!  :)

I am thankful...for my space heater in my office.  I'm frickin' freezin' & having it blast on me has been super!  I may have to go get an afternoon cup of coffee to warm my bones & I never do that when I'm at work but I'm colder than a witch's tit in a brass bra!  <--- my mom used to say that all the time when I was younger.  Tee hee!

I am thankful...that tonight is the night I get to go see The Force Awakens!  It seems that we've only been waiting for this movie to come out for years upon years.  However, if we gotta stand in line outside the theater, that is gonna suck cuz it's a cold on out there - currently 29.  Eeek!


  1. I am always freezing at the office too! I have blankets that live at my desk for when I need to warm up! Have fun at the movie tonight!

    1. I used to have a blanket at my desk & for some reason it never made it back to my office. I might have to fix that. Ha!

  2. Can't wait to hear how the movie was! My husband is so excited for it!

    1. Oh, I will have my review tomorrow - no spoilers, of course. But I will talk about it. Cannot wait! Eeek! :)

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…
