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?

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!

It's Wednesday So That Means...

So, back in the day, there was a linkup about weekly lessons.  I really liked it but since it has crumbled & the linkup is no more.  :(  I really liked doing it so I'm going to continue doing it, join me!
I've Learned...that when Sunshine gets an attitude with me & I make her go to her room & rethink how she speaks to me, she comes down ten minutes later & is sweet as pie.  I even got three "I Love Yous" from her in a span of about thirty minutes.  Ha!  
I've Learned...that I need to make another attempt at the Grand Mac from McDonald's.  I tried to do it last week but did not finish it (I finished the fries & the apple pie though).  That was not good enough for my grandfather so I need to have another go at it so I think that since it's just me & Sunshine again tonight, we're gonna pick up McDonald's again & give it another shot.

I've Learned...that once the weather warms up, even if just for a lil bit, I think Spring…

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 to Karli &/orApril.

My five this week are five of my latest funnies pinned on Pinterest.  Lately, work has been a lil difficult & I need something to make me smile on this Friday morning.  So, here we go:

So, are there any posts that have been giving you a giggle lately?  If so, please share.
Have a great weekend, yall!
