Thankful Thursday...

  I am thankful...that we are getting plans set on the Christmas Day celebrations.  Paul & I will be at the Packer game on Christmas Eve so we had to do some switching around so we're doing everything Christmas Day - lunch at his parents' where we'll be bringing the meal as Paul's mom just had surgery & then back to our place to host my family with snacks, gifts & fun.  I am so excited!

  I am thankful...that as we speak, my sister is almost here from Colorado & my uncle will be jumping in his car from Texas to be up here in the next couple of days.  If only my cousin from Oregon could make it, I told him to rob a rich, old lady so he could afford a plane ticket to come home for Christmas.

  I am thankful...that at this time next week, I will be sipping on some coffee from the comfort of my home with Christmas episodes of Friends playing while I either bake or wrap presents.  I have off next Thursday & Friday to get the final touches done for the holiday.

  I am thankful...that right after work tonight, I have my monthly massage.  A ninety minute hot stone massage is just what I'll need in this freezing Wisconsin weather we're having.  Plus, I may make another massage appointment for next Friday just because I should have some money from my Christmas bonus & it'll be nice to get rubbed again after all the wrapping & baking.  :)

What are some things that
you are thankful for on this Thursday?


  1. You made me giggle! Rob an old lady, haha!

    1. Oh yea, I want him home for Christmas even if that means that he has to rob a rich old lady. Tee hee!

  2. Oh my goodness my friend you are going to FREEZE at the game. We sold our tickets.

    1. It's gonna be bad. I don't like cold games at all but my husband talked me into these tickets.

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…
