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 &/or Liz.

My five this week are some of the gifties I got my hubby for Christmas.

  1.  A wine kit & all the goodies that he needed to go with it to make his own Cabernet.  He loves wine especially Cab & the dryer the better.  So, I saw this kit & I thought he would really enjoy making his own to try.  :)

  2.  Movies.  He requested Inception because it has his "boyfriend" Leo in it & I had not already bought it for our collection.  Then we didn't have Guardians yet & knew that we needed it because one of Paul's favorite characters is Rocket.

  3.  Game of Thrones.  He already has the first season so thought I should add to the collection & get him seasons two & three.  Who doesn't want more Jon Snow & crew?!  :)

  4.  Carmex.  Okay, so this will go in his stocking but he loves Carmex (I hate it!) so I couldn't think of anything good to put in his stocking so he got a three pack of Carmex & some other misc. things like underwear.  Ha!

  5.  Packer attire.  I got him a new Packer polo, silky boxer briefs & socks.  He loves his Packers probably more than he loves me so I always gotta get him plenty of Packer goodies.  :)


  1. I have such a hard time buying for my husband. I swear he is the hardest person on my list to buy for.

    1. My father-in-law is the worst! I usually have ideas for everyone but him & he is of no help cuz when we ask him what he wants, he says nothing & when we ask him what he needs, he says nothing cuz he'll just go get it when he needs it. *sigh*

  2. You did well! Meanwhile...I'm still over here struggling. Ha :)

    1. I'm really excited to give him the wine making kit, I think that will be fun. :)

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…

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…
