Musical Monday / Weekend Update...

Musical Monday - The Sound of Silence by Disturbed.  This band is one of my favorite bands & I'm not even kidding.  I love Disturbed SO much that I almost cried when I couldn't see them at Northern Invasion but hopefully, Rock USA will be attended & I can control myself not to rush the stage & stroke David's chin piercings.  Tee hee!  I <3 David!

Weekend Update - 

    Friday:  had to go do some grocery shopping right after work & get some last minute things for Sunshine's confirmation party.  Then when the hubby & I got everything unloaded, he took me out to eat & then we came home to watch The Force Awakens.

    Saturday:  we had Sunshine's confirmation party & it went on without a hitch.  The weather was beautiful, there was plenty of good convo, delicious grub & well-wishes.

After the party, I ventured over to my mother's to help with some stuff at her dwelling, picked up Sunshine to head down to the office so she could print off her Faith Statement for the service & then home to relax & watch The Witch with the hubby.  I am convinced that I was just too tired to really pay attention to the movie so I may have to watch it again.

    Sunday:  Confirmation Service Day!  I got up early & got ready so I could put Sunshine's hair in the hot rollers & such.  She was so pretty - inside & out!

My mom, Jill & "K" came to service & as we were heading in, I saw Paul's parents with Trouble in the backseat.  & then we get into the church & Paul is sitting in the pew in front of Sunshine's mother's family.  My anxiety went through the roof.  At one point, my mom leaned over & said:  "you're shaking".  But we got through it & afterwards, Paul & I went out to eat with Greg, Jill & the kids while Sunshine went with her mom.  We then came home, did a few things & my anxiety got the best of me & left me bedridden with a migraine the rest of the night - I didn't even paint my nails, watch Fear the Walking Dead or Game of Thrones...that's when you know that I'm not doing well.  Ugh!


  1. She looks absolutely radiant! I'm so sorry about the family anxiety. Ugh. I hope that ultimately you were able to focus on the positive experiences of the day.

    1. Once I got a chance to read her Faith Statement, it made me feel good. She wrote about me: "she is a very kind & wonderful lady to be with everyday. She brings me to church, makes sure that I do Sermon Notes & to pay attention throughout the whole service." I got the biggest shout out & that made me feel good. Ha!

  2. Awe, she looked so pretty!!!! Family anxiety and drama is just the worst! Sorry you had to deal with that.

    1. Thank you. She is a pretty girl, inside & out. I mean, she has her moments like every other teen but she's a very kind-hearted gal. :)

  3. I hope you're feeling better now! And she looks so gorgeous! I love her hair!

    1. She loves my hot rollers. We tried them on Mother's Day & it turned out really well but on this day they were falling flat but I think that was because we didn't leave them in as long. Oh well, they still looked good for our pictures at least. :)

  4. She looks wonderful! Congratulations on her confirmation.
    I'm glad her party went well.

    1. Thank you! I'm glad that her party went well too, we didn't put too much planning into it cuz we've just been SO busy lately, it's been insane but it came together well. :)

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…

Friday Five...

Why, hello, everyone.  'Tis that day of the week when we all pick five things to talk about.  So, if you would like to linkup you can head on over toApril to do so.  :) My five this week are things I am most excited about in the new Fantastic Beasts movie.  In case you didn't see the preview of it, here is one & this is one that I did not see until today:


  1.  Seeing more of Johnny Depp as Grindelwald.  Now, if you are new to these parts, I have been "forced" to be a fan of Johnny Depp as my mom is in love with him & told me that he's my dad.  Ha!  So, whenever I see him I always say to myself "hi, Dad!"  Ha!  Plus, it helps that he's an amazing actor.  I am so excited to see how he plays this character, I know that it will be fantastic!

  2.  Jacob Kowalski.  Oh my gosh, do I love this character!  Dan Fogler plays him so wonderfully.  He is just so likable &a…
