Friday Fragments?

*Today is my Birthday. Mr. Ski definitely surprised me too! He had decorated my car last year so I was half expecting him to decorate something but half of me was trying to not expect anything to avoid disappointment. He did not disappoint! The last two years he's had away games on my Birthday so we've yet to celebrate together but next's on! :) I woke up to a trail of confetti to my present (a filing cabinet and itunes card...yes I'm a nerd) and there were beautiful flowers in one of the drawers along with 10 balloons! It was so sweet! Don't worry I took lots of pictures. So then, as I'm talking to my bff, I told her that I guess he decided to decorate inside because it's been raining so much here. Just as I said that I looked out the window and there was a "Happy Birthday" banner and gigantic age balloons on my car! I was so surprised! It was an awesome start to my birthday!

**We decided to make a trip to St. Louis tomorrow so we can watch the Packers play the Rams on Sunday. I had made a list of cities within 300 miles (we have to stay within 300 miles of Ft. C otherwise Mr. Ski has to get a weekend pass) and Mr. Ski says...Oh wow, the packers play in St. Louis on Sunday...we should go there! So we are! We got pretty good seats for a pretty decent price so I hope the Packers pull out a W!

***Gidget does not like confetti. She avoided it like the plague!

****I never thought I would like blogging as much as I do. It's not so much the writing as the people I have met through blogging. It sounds so cheesy but it's the truth! I love my blogging friends! You guys are great!

*****I ran into this hope chest from my great aunt that we currently have our tv sitting on this morning. It has a key on the outside and the key did this to my leg:

**Please ignore the pastiness of my shin! :) It looks worse than it photographs and it's going to be a nasty bruise...I just know it!

******Can someone identify why this sign (that I walk by everyday, multiple times a day at work) irritates me. Look closely....

I'll give you a's a spelling error. I mean COME ON! if you're going to advertise your business on a sign that people will walk by and look at EVERY SINGLE DAY then at least spell Development right! GEEZE! Yeah, I think I want to give you my business...especially since it looks like you are ON top of it! I've had the urge to find the key to that case so I can open it and pluck off the extra "e." Now I'm not saying I spell everything right all the time because I don't. But this is a sign for a business. Plus, I never hesitate to use the dictionary or at least spell check on the computer!

I hope everyone has a lovely friday and a FANTASTIC weekend!


  1. Happy Birthday Mrs Ski! Many happy returns.

    Know what I find funny about the posting of the sign you did? I have the word "elope" prominent in my blog post today, and well...with the misspelling on the sign you posted, it says elope in the middle.

  2. I left you a little something on my blog!! ;)

  3. And, I left you a long comment before the one above...and it's not there! :( Anyhoo...

    Happy Birthday to you! I hope you and the Mr. Ski enjoy your mini-vakay away!! Go Packers!

    Ouch on your leg!! You sound like me, though. I manage to end up with bruises in the damnedest places!! And, uh, my legs are WAY pastier!! ;)

  4. Happy Birthday!! (I totally said that like Frosty does in the Frosty the Snowman cartoon.) Just so you know.

    And I am so glad I have spellcheck on my computer. Although I can't spellcheck this comment so if it's wrong don't tell me.

    Anyway have a great day!!

  5. Happy Birthday! Hope you get good cake. That is the best part of birthdays... :)

    I'm jealous of the football watching. I love attending NFL games. It's so much freaking fun.

    Your legs are not that bad. My husband refers to me as the whitest person alive. :-)

    Have a great weekend!

  6. Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy BIIIIIIRTHDAY.....and all that stuff.

    I noticed the misspelling and that drives me crazy, but also, the N in environmental is not in line with the others and THAT drives me nuts too.

    Have a great time!

  7. Happy Birthday! Hope you enjoy your trip!

    I'm a terrible speller, but I always always check it before I let anyone else read anything I've written! Public mis-spellings irritate me too. The word 'ceremony' was mis-spelled on my high school graduation program & I'll never forget that!

  8. Happy Birthday!

    I get really annoyed when words are misspelled, but more annoyed when people mix up homophones. That is a huge pet peeve of mine. I do think an actual company or business should have some sort of spellcheck in place before advertising or making signs, though.

    Happy (late) FF!

  9. > I'll give you a's a spelling error.
    > I mean COME ON! if you're

    That is really funny. On this topic, there is a good spell check program Spell Check Anywhere (SpellCheckAnywhere.Com). It works in all programs, including blogs-- and it also has optional grammar check.

  10. Happy Birthday! Hope you had a great weekend!

  11. Happy birthday!

    You're a stronger woman than me- I'd have opened up that case and taken off the e within a week, by force if necessary. Irk.

  12. So, you were in my neck of the woods! :) I live outside St Louis.

    Happy Belated birthday!

    Spelling errors drive me crazy!!!!!!

    (followig you now!)

  13. I so agree on the blogging friendships thing, which is why I hope you're a true friend and will forgive me for not getting here sooner this week. I'm ashamed of myself, but I really couldn't get here sooner; that stinks!

    Hope your bruise is gone, and I'm glad your hubby loves you so much and celebrated your birthday right! :)
