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?!?!

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…
