Friday Fragments!

Mommy's Idea

Friday is here which means that Friday Fragments are in full swing! I haven't participated in FF in awhile so I thought today...I would jump back on the bandwagon that is led by our fearless Friday Fragments leader, Mrs. 4444's over at Half Past Kissin' Time! Head over to her site and hop on the wagon.

*Today is my dad's birthday...HAPPY BIRTHDAY DADDY! Thank you for being my hero and for always being there for me. You're awesome and I love you.

**I've seen and heard how much the Midwest got hit with snow but the most snow I saw was this morning on the back of a tractor trailer. I like snow...not 14 inches of it but I would like a couple inches.

***Mr. Ski volunteers with Fort C's high school's football team and they won the state championship game last Friday. It was an awesome opportunity to be a part of their 3rd state championship in a was a 3peat! I did however freeze my tail off and contracted a cold from sitting outside for 4+ hours but I wouldn't have missed it for the world. Way to go Falcons! This picture was was taken of my sister (redskins hoodie), me (blue jacket), my mom and dad by the newspaper staff. Thank goodness it wasn't in the paper!!!! I was horrified when I saw it, but since I'm a glutton for punishment I'll post it here. I must have been really into whatever I was talking about. Don't laugh too could be the worst picture of me ever!
Pretty bad, huh? It was too cold to even consider fashion...we did everything we could to keep in as much heat as possible! Which included making several trips to the heated restrooms, we told dad about how warm the restrooms were but he refused to go and just hang out to warm up saying that "men just don't hang out in's a little creepy." I will say that the best part of the day was the police escort back to Fort C and the welcome back ceremony...the community was great and showed these kids (all have at least one parent in the Army) how truly special they all are.

****My new nickname should be wheezy. This cold is just hanging out in my chest and I'm growing tired of the coughing and "mouse sounds" that are coming from this cold.

*****One morning last week my car windows were frosted over. Mr. Ski being the sweetheart he is scraped them for me. When I got in the car and looked through my rear view mirror I saw that he had carved a heart in the frost. It brought the biggest smile to my face. The funny thing is that the heart is STILL there! See...
Can you see it?

******Christmas is 14 days away and I have bought 2 gifts. Haha, I'm such a procrastinator. I do get some kind of satisfaction from doing last minute shopping, it's a rush.


  1. The heart is awesome. What a great hubby you have. :)


  2. What state are you in? And when it's cold, it doesn't matter what you look like. All that matters is that one of your body parts doesn't freeze and fall off. I'm awesome with advice huh?

  3. The heart is AWESOME. What a nice surprise.

  4. That picture of your and your hubby on your wedding day is just to die for... gorgeous...

    I love your frag about "weezy"... I feel ya. I have been sick since Black Friday. Maybe I should ask for health for Christmas?


  5. Awwwww! That heart is awesome! Your hubby is definitely a keeper! :)

    Happy Birthday to your dad! WooHoo! Another December Baby! :)

    I love that picture - you're yakking away while your sister and mom are paying rapt attention, but your dad is looking off in the that a glazed over look? ;)

    Sorry you have a cold - hope you feel better soon!

    I'm part of the procrastinator club, too... ;)

    Happy FF! :)

  6. I'm with you on the gifts. Bought my first one today. Sigh...

  7. I love that you posted the picture even though you don't like it. It seems like everyone is really into what you are saying because the focus is all on you. You are fascinating, Baby!

  8. Awwww.... that heart is so sweet.

    Happy birthday to your dad!

    If you're wheezy I'm coughy. I've had a cough for weeks now.... blargh.

  9. That ornament went flying as I took the picture and shattered a few seconds later... he loves "balls," and that was one of at least 3 ornament casualties so far this season! Nice action shot though :-P

  10. The frost heart is very sweet :-)

    I prefer to have my Christmas shopping done early, but I've completely failed at that this year - there's nothing like doing it at the last minute to make you focus though and it does feel good when it all comes together!

    Happy belated FF :-)

  11. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment.

    How sweet of MrSki to do your windows and leave you a heart on the window. He sounds like a good man.

    I hope you feel better soon, being sick-sucks!

    I really just started my shopping yesterday, so don't feel bad. I think a lot of us are having trouble getting motivated this year.

    I say throw fashion out the window, when it is a survival issue! Probably everyone else was in the same fashion style as you.

  12. Sorry to hear you've been feeling under the weather. I hope you're better now!

    I'm not surprised you chose a man who adores you, since you obviously come from a man who felt the same. I'm happy for you.

    Enjoy your rush :)
