The Blog-tember Challenge: Day 7…

I love these prompts & I thank you so much Bailey for doing these for the month.  If you would like to join the fun, head on over to Love Bailey Jean to linkup & such!

Today’s prompt:  five things that bring you joy.

1.  Family.  My family has always been pretty dang important to me & as I get older, I'm realizing that more & more.  I have a wonderful family that supports me & loves me & I love spending time with them especially my lil cousins, I love watching them grow.

2.  Friends.  I have many friends around me & some that I consider my family.  I mean, I have nieces & nephews who are not blood but that's the way I see them.  They are all important to me & I would do anything for them.  I even still call my uncle's ex-wife my "aunt", her husband my "uncle" & their son my "cousin".  That's what they are to me & that's it.  Plain & simple.

3.  Music.  First of all, I would have KILLED anyone that did that to one of my cassettes back in the day!  Tee hee!  I have always loved music.  I remember sitting in our den when I was younger listening to my parents' records specifically Led Zeppelin & Golden Earring.  Even now, just sitting down & listening to a record brings a smile to my face.  :)

4.  Books.  I love to read & the older I get, the more that's all I really want to do.  I have piles of physical books that I haven't read yet.  Books downloaded to my Kindle that I haven't read yet.  I have books everywhere & they are all fabulous & make me happy.  Sometimes when I'm feeling sad, I down down to my room in the basement & just look at my bookshelf full of books.  Tee hee!

5.  Wisconsin Badgers, Milwaukee Brewers & Green Bay Packers.  Sports make me happy...well, unless my team is sucking it up big time then I'm not so happy.  But my pride for my teams & my state run deep.  I love them all & when we win, it's always a good day.  :)


  1. Ahhhh. I LOVE your 5 things and could have written the same five. I almost wrote Baseball for one of my five. In fact I did and then I erased it and wrote something else. I was happy to see it on your list. Have a wonderful day. :)

    1. Well, girl, I think that we should be friends then! Ha! I'm gonna jump on over & check out your five & maybe your five would have been options for me. :)

  2. Oooh, I love reading too! What are some of your favorites from this summer?

    1. I was actually a total nerd all summer & read the Harry Potter series for the second time. I did read Harry Potter & the Cursed Child & if you're a HP fan, it's worth the read. It's a real quick easy read. :)

  3. I think if you changed #5 to my fur babies, we'd have the same list :)

    1. Oh yea, fur babies. How could I have forgotten my fur babies?!?!

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!

I am tha…

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!
