This morning I was just thinking about how great it is for me to have Sunshine in my life.  Of course, we've had our ups & downs as any mother/daughter would.  Yes, technically she is my stepdaughter but I've been the one raising her since she was eight & in my eyes, she's my daughter.  I may not have pushed her from my body but I don't feel that's the only thing that makes you a mother.

She is really turning into a great kid.  She worked most of the summer & has quite the nice savings account right now & plans to save it as when she gets her license in a couple of months, she'll be able to have gas money as she cannot work between school & gymnastics.  However, she also knows that she will not touch the car unless her grades are C's or better.  So, she has obtainable goals that she needs to reach before she has the privilege of driving & I think that she will do just fine.

She has told me that she has a healthy fear of me because she knows that if she doesn't do as she is supposed to, that I will unleash consequences.  She also has told me that she wants to be like me & do things on her own & not have to depend on anyone.  That makes my heart smile a big toothy grin.  Ha!

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…

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 toApril to do so.  :) My five this week are things I am most excited about in the new Fantastic Beasts movie.  In case you didn't see the preview of it, here is one & this is one that I did not see until today:

  1.  Seeing more of Johnny Depp as Grindelwald.  Now, if you are new to these parts, I have been "forced" to be a fan of Johnny Depp as my mom is in love with him & told me that he's my dad.  Ha!  So, whenever I see him I always say to myself "hi, Dad!"  Ha!  Plus, it helps that he's an amazing actor.  I am so excited to see how he plays this character, I know that it will be fantastic!

  2.  Jacob Kowalski.  Oh my gosh, do I love this character!  Dan Fogler plays him so wonderfully.  He is just so likable &a…
