Friday Fragments!!

Friday Fragments?
Yay! It's Friday!!!! Which means Friday Fragments time. I need it, apparently my laziness does not allow me to post during the week unless it's Friday Fragments. Head over to Mrs. 4444's (the creator/mastermind behind FF) page to check out her Friday Fragments and the Frags of other fine fine bloggers!

~I love fall. Of course, the leaves changing is awesome and beautiful but one of my most favorite things is when I'm driving and seeing the leaves fly up behind my car. It makes me happy just thinking about it!

~Big game this weekend!! The Vikings will play the Packers at Lambeau and I will be wearing my AJ Hawk jersey and pink converse (so far they've been lucky) nervously watching the game on Sunday. Go Pack Go!!!!!

~So Taco Bell is GIVING away the Black Jack Taco everyday from 6pm to midnight. Hmm, I wonder why?! Oh maybe it's because everyone is too scared of the amount of food coloring that must have been used to color that taco shell black. YUCK!

~Skip on over this one Kori :) It's another Project Runway frag! Carol Hannah, I still love you and I want you to win and by no means do I think you're a one trick pony. Althea, must you wear your hear like a Charlie's Angel? Irena, you suck. Christopher, you're a sweetheart but for the life of me I cannot figure out how you have made it this far. Gordana, please try not to use gray in your next's so boring! Logan, we will all miss gazing at your beautiful face.

~I went to my doctor's appointment on Wednesday for the follow up testing to the bad results. I absolutely LOVED the doctor and his nurse. They were awesome and both comforted me as I sat in the examination room in a puddle of my own tears. They did a biopsy and a cutterage, it wasn't as painful as I expected it to be. But I don't think that the experience would have turned out the way it did had I not had such a great doctor and nurse! God bless them! I will get the results back next week so I'm trying to stay positive and not freak out over the possible negative outcomes. Mr. Ski has been awesome regarding all this, not that I didn't think he would be but it just caught me off guard how encouraging and supportive he's been. He's been ensuring me that he will be by my side for the bad and the good. As well as telling me that he just has "a really good feeling" about it all. We definitely have had our moments where outcomes have seemed bleak but man, he has ALWAYS come through just when I need him the most. I love him.

~Speaking of Mr. Ski, he got his disability rating last week. Which means we'll be out of the Army by February (once terminal leave is over). While that's scary, there are also positives like: we can travel whenever, wherever we want without getting permission from the Army first and Mr. Ski won't have to get up at 4am on the weekdays anymore. I'm sure there are more but those two stick out the most!

~The neighbor's inflatables haven't slumped over yet. I did get encouraged last week when I came out of the house and all three were completely deflated!! But it was just because they'd briefly turned off the fans...bummer! Mr. Ski and I have a bet as to how soon they will take down their Halloween inflatables and blow up the Thanksgiving ones. I'm predicting they'll have the turkey/pilgrim combo in their yard by Sunday morning.

~And now for your Mitch Hedberg quote for the week: "I'm lactose intolerant, I have to eat my cereal with a fork."


  1. Um, well. I am glad to hear the man is being, well, a man and standing by you; I, too, hope that his gut feelings are spot on, and will be thinking of you until I hear the results.

  2. Umm My turkey blowup IS going up Sunday. Just thought you'd like to know. LOL

  3. Black Jack Taco. I've never heard of it. Now I'm going to have to go Google it.

    Have a great weekend!


    Let us know about the results- you'll be in my thoughts until then.

  5. Waiting for results can be so stressful - I hope your results are manageable.

    I don't like those inflatables either.

    I can't imagine not being able to take off when I wanted to, but then again, I don't have a job LOL

  6. I'm lactose intolerant; I should probably try that, but I LOVE milk! :(

    Our neighbors have the most inflatables ever; they're house is a landmark of sorts for many kids. Sadly, though, last year someone slit every single one of their 27 Christmas inflatables. Who does that?!

    Good luck with your results. I'm glad the experience wasn't as bad as you feared.

  7. I know I'm a day late and a dollar short, but I wanted to check on you. Hadn't stopped by in awhile. No internet at home for the time being! :(

    I hope your results came back good. I'll be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers!

    Did your pink converse bring you any luck that weekend?

    Glad there is an end in sight for your and Mr. Ski in the army!!

    Hope all is well!
