Mug Love Exchange...

Boy, do I love doing exchanges!  Not only do you get some pretty cool things but you get to meet some even cooler folks.  :)

I was matched up with Crystal over at Hall Around Texas.  She is a delightful lady & I really enjoyed getting to know her & to continue to learn more about her.

So, here is what the Texas gal got me & it was a WIN!

My haul.

I told her that I was a 
Harry Potter nerd & this is now
my favorite coffee mug.  If it's clean,
I'm using it!  I love it!

I looked through this & my friend, Jill,
has actually already borrowed it
from me to come up with a pumpkin themed
dessert for an upcoming girls' weekend.

This was after I opened the package,
I could not wait to use my new 
mug so I washed 'er up & used it for my 
nighttime tea.

Thank you SO much, Crystal.  You did a wonderful job.  I love my goodies!  :)

If you would like to see what I got Ms. Crystal, hope on over to read her blog post.

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…
