Short, sweet and to the point.

Had a long day.

Didn't want to be at work.

But I stuck it out.

Was mad at Boyfriend all day long.

But I'm over it now.

Boyfriend and I went to see Salt with Peach and her hubby.

I really liked it.

I thought it was good.

Things were unexpected...

It was suspenseful...



Then we went to Wallie World

And got rid of the bags

Came home

Made a nummy frozen meal of potatoes




It was nummy.

Then we listened to a book...


And now we're getting ready to say night.

All in all, it's been an okay day.

And Boyfriend no worky tomorrow

(he normally works on Sunday)

So I'm excited. :)

I hope you're all doing good!!

Garbage bags

Tonight's is going to be semi-short.

I didn't sleep well at all last night....

I think I got about...4? 5 hours? 

But it wasn't sound sleeping.

So Boyfriend is going home early so I can get some sleep.

Because of said tiredness and not feeling very well Mr. Boss Man let me go home early.

So, I came home and tried to sleep...

Tried being the key word there.

Every time I fell asleep something woke me up.

Cell phone...

Random noises...

Didn't work out so well.

 So Boyfriend and I just ran errands instead.

Once upon a time when I had a birthday Boyfriend gave me a gift card to FYE.

(For Your Entertainment)

So the I could get something that I really wanted.

It was for a pretty nice amount.



So I figured I'd use it towards Wii stuff.

Like Wii Fit Plus.

Anyway, today we went to FYE to get the stuff

And I figured while we were out we'd go to Wallie World

Cause he needed to go grocery shopping and I needed to get stuff.

And then I had this brilliant idea.

Wallie World recycles your grocery bags for you

And we've been meaning to take mine, but always forget.

You see, in Spain they recycle EVERYTHING.

And so when I lived there I got in that habit.

So when I got home, I couldn't throw away my grocery bags!!
I figured I'd just use them for garbage bags.

So every time I went to Wallie World I would save the bags.

I wadded them up in small balls and stuffed them under my sink.

There was just one problem with this.

I usually got more bags than I used for garbage bags...

So the bags collected faster than I could use them.

Which is why I wanted to take them to Wallie World.

So I could clean out my cupboard.

So Boyfriend and I went down to collect all the bags.

And what we found was very funny. 

I unfortunately didn't think to take a picture before we started taking them out...

But there were MILLIONS of bags in there.

I'm not kidding.





It was crazy.

We got down to the end and I was digging through making sure we had them all

When I noticed something above me.

The garbage bags had stuffed themselves in between the sink and the wall of the counter.

Like so:

I laughed oh so very hard when I saw it.

We were about 3/4 of the way through at this point...but there were still so many to go!!

All the non-Wallie World type bags...yeah...I think I have a sickness.

The bag of bags.

We had to keep shoving and stuffing in order for them to all fit in one bag.

And then we didn't even end up going to Wallie World.

Boyfriend was hungry, I was tired and weak cause I was still feeling just blah...

And we just wanted to come home.

So home we came.

It was still very entertaining though. :)

So now I have Wii Fit Plus, the charger for the Wii Fit...a winter sports game...Toy Story Mania and a couple of others.

 I also put a down payment towards Epic Mickey...a game on the Wii that's coming out in November. Sooo excited!!

So it's been a productive day.

Boyfriend got the game he wanted and I'm sure I'll never see my Wii now...or him.


Anyway, I'm tired and I need to go to sleep so I can function tomorrow at work and be happy about being there.

Night everyone!!

Sorry it's so random and confusing and jumbled...that's what you get when I'm tired I guess.

A very merry un-birthday

First things first.

We have a new follower!!

I would like to give a very warm welcome to my friend Sara!!

Sara is a lovely lady that I met while I was in Spain.

She isn't Spanish...I want to say she's from Sweden...but I don't know that for sure...

However, WELCOME! :D

I hope you enjoy your stay!!

Lot's of news today.

My home away from home, my job, has become infested.

With what I hear you ask?

With a big nasty evil bug called a Spider Mite.

For those of you who don't know what that is...

It's a big nasty evil mean bug that can kill your plants.

Now, I know what you're thinking:

"Baby Sister, those don't like like big evil bugs...they're so little!!"

Yes, my friends, they are little...but those little suckers are mean and evil!!
If left untouched they can kill the plant!!
Let this be your gardening lesson of the day.

Never EVER trust a Spider Mite.

The first indication that you shouldn't trust it should've been that it has the word spider in it...

But I'll let it slide just this once! Just don't let it happen ever again!!
In other news...

I work with the scouts in my church.

The youngest group.

The wolves.

I plan activities with them and help them pass off their little thingies...

Yeah, it's fun.

Something I never saw myself doing...

But it's fun! :)

Anyway, I got home today and my mom said:

"Did you see the plate of cookies for you?"

"Well, I saw the plate addressed to Sister Platt..."

(Sister is a term we use in our church for the women...Brother for the men)

"So I figured it was for you"

"It's's for you"

"Oh...who's it from?"

"Your scouts"

"Huh? Which one?"

"You'll see"

So I opened the card...

And this is what I saw:

They were so cute!!

It made me feel all warm and special. :)

However, I have had WAYYYYY too much sweet stuff the cookies will have to wait...otherwise my tummy might explode.

In other news...

I got a hair cut today!! :D

A VERY much needed one!

And with the hair cut my VERY favorite part.


Have you ever tried that?

I did a few years ago...

And I haven't been able to go back to regular plucking since.

It's been awhile since I've gotten my hair cut

And because of that it's been awhile since I've gotten my eyebrows waxed.

So they went from looking like this:

To looking like this:

I think the second picture suites me much better...

Don't you?


I got an ouchie at work the other day.

I was getting on the 6-wheeler and slipped and my foot rammed into the side.

It looks totally cool!!

There it is being all swollen and stuff...

And there it is being all bruised.

Isn't that sweet??

Boyfriend doesn't think so...but I do.

And lastly, here's a treat for the Un-Birthday party to prepare you for pictures to come:

Papa Smurf. :)

Papa and Mama Smurf. :)

Boyfriend and I. :)

AND....ze cake!! :D

Night everyone!!

Top hats for surprise un-birthday party tomorrow night for Papa Smurf so we (his children, grandchildren, Mama Smurf...) can pretend to be the Mad Hatter:

$1.40ish each (x23)

Sticky notes to make the cards with the numbers like the Mad Hatter has:


(yeah...didn't notice the cat till afterwards...oh well!)

Crepe paper to wrap around the hats to act as the ribbon around the Mad Hatter hat:


Getting together with two of your best friends for a Girls Night Out and having them help you finish the hats for tomorrow night, priceless.

(A picture of the not that great of quality)

Picturing your dad wear this tomorrow and you taking a picture of it, priceless x 2.

There are some things money CAN buy...

For everything else there's Visa Debit. 


I know, lame ending...but Boyfriend and I couldn't think of anything else.

Yay for amazing friends and for seeing Papa Smurf be happy tomorrow.

Night everyone!!
