Musical Monday / Weekend Update...

    Musical Monday - Bang Bang by Green Day.  I've really been diggin' this song lately.  I've always liked Green Day, never a favorite but they've had some good tunes & this is one of them.  :)

    Weekend Update - 

        Friday - I'm gonna start this off by saying that I was a terrible blogger & didn't get any pictures from this weekend.  Yea, I know, horrible.  Anywho, Friday after work I went to the local jewelry store to pick up my black onyx pendant that I won a couple of weeks ago.  I got myself a chain to go with it & also got my rings cleaned.  My wedding ring sparkles again!  Then went home to get ready for the eve.  We started things off with dinner with our friends, Ben & Christa, & then headed out to our friend, Jeremy & Gladys' for a fire & the Packer game.  No jokes, we had a TV outside on their patio to watch the game while we sat around the fire.  I tried to get pictures but they did not turn out.  :(

        Saturday - I went with Paul to one of his football drafts.  I wasn't really looking forward to it but sucked it up & went anyway.  I've never been to a live draft before & it was kinda fun...for a couple of rounds.  Towards the end, we were all just sort of over it & some wished they could have used the "auto pick" feature.  Ha!  But it was fun & got to talk Game of Thrones/Harry Potter/Twilight after the draft was completed.  :)

        Sunday - this day started off on a sour note which kinda left me feeling "sour" all day long.  We had let Sunshine stay home while we were at the draft & she had two friends over.  Well, not only did they drink my Fizzy Moscato wine, they did so while hanging out on the roof.  So, needless to say, it's gonna be awhile before Sunshine is allowed to have friends over if we are not there.  I think that she understands that she made a mistake as I didn't say much to her yesterday as I was either hidden outside reading or down in the basement watching Deathly Hallows: Part One.  She finally got the nerve to come see me & asked if I was mad at her.  I told her that I was upset & disappointed because she's smarter than that & knows better.  I asked her who's idea it was & she said that it was hers but I told her that I didn't believe that.  I explained the predicament that she & her friends put Paul & I in & that she was not allowed to have anyone over for quite some time.  I told her that I don't want this to be the beginning of the same path her sister walked.  She told me that she will not be like Trouble & she knows that she made a mistake & will not repeat it.  She's fourteen, fourteen, too young to be pulling this stuff already...or is that just me thinking that?  I didn't do anything like that until I was a Sophomore & it was one shot of Jack Daniels...which I have never had since.  Yuck!

So, how was your weekend?


  1. Sounds like a good weekend, at least the beginning part! It's always nice to have sparkly rings again! :)

    1. No jokes, I was just admiring my sparkly ring again. Tee hee! They really cleaned it up all nice-like. :)

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…

Words of Wisdom Wednesday...

True frickin' dat!  The old phrase "think before you speak" comes to mind.  I know that sometimes emotions get the best of us & we don't think things through before we let words leave our lips.  Sometimes those words can be hurtful, embarrassing or lovable.  Lovable doesn't seem to be one that comes to mind, I'm sure, but I remember the first time that Goose told me that he loved me.  He didn't think it through & those three lil words came flying outta his mouth at a birthday party in an old friend's living room.  I could not believe it but those words were already out in the universe.

I doubt that Goose would change anything now but at the time, it scared him to say those words & he probably would have thought it through a little better but, in that case, I'm glad that he didn't.

However, I'm really trying to get the girls to think before they speak & I tell them that once words leave their lips, they may have it off thei…
