I know, I missed Song Lyric Sunday…I did find a song, but I just wasn’t feeling it. If you know what I mean. I have been totally out of sync since the road trip. I’m trying to get back on track. Here’s my music for today…Probably one of my favorite Christmas Song’s ❤ It’s good to start out the day with a song ❤
Christmas always throws me a curve and I get all nervous about getting it all done. We were going to go to the Winter Classic (Hockey/Blackhawks vs. the Bruins) at Notre Dame in South Bend but I don’t think that is going to happen. Our Mz. Bella is still on the mend and I don’t want to board her again. I don’t know what happened, but I’m not taking a chance with her. Also I’m pretty sure the weather would not be good south of Lake Michigan. Not going to risk it. The guys will be home and we’ll just watch it from home where it’s nice and warm…Besides the Blackhawk’s are having some issues and I really don’t want to spend all that money to freeze and watch them lose.
I did get our Christmas picture done, now I just have to get the card done which I will do this week. The pictures turned out really nice so it was worth all the effort. So much easier with just the two of us instead of seven…The stories of our Christmas pictures, well let’s just say it wasn’t pretty. One year Connie decided it would be a great day to shave off his eyebrows. He was only in 2nd grade, like 7 years old. I wasn’t laughing, and yes we still had the picture taken.
Well it’s Monday and I have soooo much to get done this week to get on track for Christmas. I’m going to get my planner set up for Christmas. I know I’m about a week late. I’ll post some pictures and let you know how the road trip went. It was perfect plus we had a really great surprise too. I’ll let you know about it. Have a great week blogger’s and I’m so glad we got rid of all that snow !!!
We need some music this morning and this one always gets my blood pumping !!!
I’m going to write my, “Thankful ❤ ” blog today as I will be on my Road Trip next week…I’ll try to put up some post’s next week with cool pictures (I know everyone just loves those 🙂 ) We are going to be out East for the Thanksgiving week. I really love road trips. I think the journey is the best part of the vacation. It’s a constant changing picture of everything weather, geography, cuisine… It’s also a comfortable feeling when the place you are going feels like your second home. Being with family and friends who you don’t see every day, the ocean (which the husband has to go see no matter what). He loves the Atlantic and I’m pretty sure we will live by it some day. I have been to Virginia Beach so many times, I have become really good friends with the lady who owns and operates the, “Life is Good,” store. I go out there #1 because the husband has to see the ocean and #2 I have to go buy some new Life is Good clothing. It’s just a given when we go see the guys in Richmond, Virginia Beach is out second stop.
I can’t believe I’m not even there yet and I’m already putting up pictures…Okay this will be my Pre Thankful Thursday blog post. I’m really looking forward to going there for the donuts. I dream about these donuts all year long. We took a picture of Connie at one of my favorite donut bakeries in Richmond.
The other one is, “Duck Donuts.” I will definitely be in Donut Heaven…
So you’ve seen a couple of the places and things I will be doing. No theater this trip but I’ve seen them dance the Nutcracker a gazillion times. I’m looking forward to February and seeing Cinderella. We will probably fly then.
Then it must be Song Lyric Sunday…Y A Y The theme for this week is “Waste.” I have a great one for this from one of my favorite groups, The Eagles. My Song is, “Wasted Time.”
I don’t know where I came up with, “Waste,” as today’s theme. When visiting other’s Song Lyric Sunday the theme was, “Soul.” Well it seems a bit late to change it. I don’t know where I came up with waste 😉
I’ll be working indoor’s this weekend as the painter finishes his Monday’ Masterpiece. This is really beautiful ❤
Good morning blogger’s…Another day of listing, lister’s gotta list. This has really become part of my day. It has been my planning journey. It really has been a quite long journey, it has evolved and it has grown into something wonderful. Today’s prompt is, “Places I’d visit for the food.” Here is my layout for the day…
I know it’s Monday and this is a day late, but better late than never. These weekends go by so quickly and I was out all day, both days. Then last night I remembered Song Lyric Sunday. This theme was pretty easy for me when it comes to songs & music. I picked out one from a group from back in the day. They were one of my fav’s !! ABBA and my song for this Song Lyric Sunday…..drum roll please……..”The Winner Takes it All.” Enjoy ❤
I was going to use a different song than this one, but then I watched the youtube video and I liked the lyrics and referencing the Lord and a Rosary at the end. That pretty much sealed the deal for this Sunday. It seems sometimes we could all use a little prayer sometimes and this weekend would be a good place to start…Blessings
I have had a great week !!! So sad it is coming to an end but so much to look forward to this Holiday season !!! Connie came home on Tuesday and we literally have not stopped since he got here. We went to the movies, Wednesday night…Free Solo. A totally amazing movie. We had lunch at California Pizza Kitchen !!!
Then on Thursday (yesterday) we went to the good old hockey game. He bought the tickets and flew home and surprised us with the tickets for the his dad’s birthday. What a great guy. Great seats and they won. It was so much fun. We had Dinner before we went to the game at PFChang’s, hence Connor with the chop stick fang’s…
We made it to the game after dinner and there’s nothing like a hockey game with family. It’s something we all really love to do. Here’s a youtube condensed version of the game Blackhawk’s vs. Ranger’s. It really was an exciting game !!!!
He’ll be going home this weekend but we will be going out there for Thanksgiving. Road Trip, baby Y A Y !!! Just hope the weather will cooperate in the mountains, even if it doesn’t we will still be going just a bit slower…
When we were at the game last night, they were handing out posters, “Authentic Fan.” On the back was their entire schedule for the season. Just so happens when we go out east they will be playing in DC vs. the Capital’s (Stanley Cup Winner’s last year) so that’s where we will be. I know I said I would never go to an away game again, but I don’t care. I’ll behave and it’s going to be so much fun. Then we will be spending Thanksgiving with their friends and families, so that should be fun. Oh and we will also be staying at the Jefferson Hotel in Richmond. My absolute favorite place to stay. It is rich in history and a beautiful hotel.
Shopping in Cary Town and OMG, I’ll be filling up with the Sugar Shack and Duck Donuts. It’s going to be so much fun this year and the Holiday’s…I’m really looking forward to them. Christmas, New Year’s and yes the Winter Classic. It’s turned into a real family tradition and we are so blessed…Enjoy your weekend blogger’s ❤
Three little words…How often do you say that. Me and the hus say it everytime we hang up from our phone calls, when we wake up in the morning, when we go to bed at night, whenever we leave the house. It’s like saying, “Hello or Goodbye” for us. It’s just what we do. We do the same with our kids. Just three simple little words that mean so much. I love you ❤
It’s a great day today !!! Looking forward to a great week.
I just love the pic…Time goes by so fast. Where did it go…That’s Connie up there in the middle he’s 26 now the baby and our oldest is going to be 36 in November. I’m not older since I stopped having birthday’s around 40 years old. Have a great week blogger’s ❤
