Tuesday Talk...

Have you missed me?!  It's been over a week since I've posted anything.  With going on vacation, I got too busy to blog.  I hate that!  But I'm back & this week in Tuesday Talk with Jessica, I'm gonna talk about my Memorial Day weekend which started last Thursday.

I had originally just had Friday off but then decided to take a half day on Thursday to get Up North a little earlier & then just decided to take the whole dang day off as my cousin, Jennifer, was being induced that morning & I thought that I might be able to meet my new baby cousin before I ventured.  By the time, she had him & got cleaned up & such, I was already an hour into my trip...believe me, if it would have been less, I probably would have turned around.  But I headed up & was glad to get up there early.

We pretty much just hung out chitchatting, eating & such until it was time to hit the sack.

Friday, I took my grandmother into Minocqua to do our usual shopping/lunch date.  I was so proud of my self, I went into my favorite sports store & only bought decals for the Captiva.  When we hit up Minocqua Fudge, I ended up buying over two pounds of taffy.  No jokes.

We spent the rest of the afternoon playing games in the camper & chatting.  That night we went out for fish, stopped for some ice cream & came back to play some more games before going to bed.

Saturday, I made some French toast for breakfast & then we just hung out (seeing a pattern) until we had visits from my mom's ex-husband & my husband.  Paul & I did get to take a walk down to the lake between rainstorms.

Then we headed off to the typical Wisconsinite thing for a Saturday night - a supper club for drinks & prime rib.  I actually tried a Sloe Gin Fizz & liked it!  :)

After dinner, I said goodbye to Paul as he headed home & me back to the campground with the grandparents.  Again, we hung out & did some coloring in my adult coloring books & then headed off to bed with rain falling.

Sunday, we got things packed up & hit the road.  I ended up stopping in Wausau for some Panera Bread all by myself.  Since I didn't have any way to access Facebook from the campground, I checked that out while I enjoyed my bread, Mac & Cheese & Bear Claw.  Yum!  When I got home, I got unpacked, watched some Orphan Black & just relaxed.

Yesterday was the day, the day I would meet my new cousin!  So, I got my butt outta bed, showered, ran a few errands, picked up lunch & headed to my cousin's for the day.  I got to love up on my new cousin & the new big brother.  It was a great day!

My new cousin, "T".  I love, love, love him!  I cannot tell you how long I snuggled with him yesterday but it was a long time.  I really did not want to leave last night but I figured that since I had spent about six hours there, it was time to go home & get ready for the work week.  I was/am so jealous that my cousin, Jennifer, & her husband are now off until July to spend time with their new addition.  So awesome!

So, how was your Memorial Day weekend?

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…
