Friday Fragments, eh!

Mommy's Idea

Today is THE day! What day you might say? The day for Friday Fragments, eh? And that was my attempt to rhyme... Head over to Half Past Kissin' Time to get the low down on how to participate in Friday Fragments as well as link up your fantastic frags! Mrs. 4444 will love it if you stop by!

*Mr. Ski called me this morning to let me know he had been nominated for a humanitarian award that is given to one college student and one faculty member in the State of Tennessee. He is being recognized for remaining on the Dean's List for the past five semesters while being an active duty soldier and coaching football for the on post high school. I am so proud of him, he has gone above and beyond as a student and a soldier. He is starting to see how all his hard work is paying off and even if he's not the winner of the award it is definitely an honor to be nominated.

*I am leaving for a weekend trip after work today! It is Kiki's bachelorette party and we are staying the weekend at a cabin on the lake. I am so excited!! I don't know what I am more excited about getting to hang out with Kiki (I love her so much and our girl time was seriously effected when I moved away from the city) or the fact that it's a bachelorette party that doesn't include going downtown with 18 other girls who are all wearing feather boas while trying to complete such tasks as: finding certain sterotypical guys and dancing onstage to the big butt song. Instead we will be relaxing in a gorgeous cabin, soaking in the hot tub, going to a winery and all in all enjoying a girl's weekend without having to wear uncomfortable shoes.

*I came to a realization recently: I do not like to shop (exceptions: Express and Target). I get very overwhelmed and give up looking for steals and deals. For instance, here is what happens when I go to those stores that department stores sell to so they have everything from clothes to home goods....are you catching my drift? First let me say that I rarely if ever will go shopping without specifically going for something. So I go into the above mentioned store...we'll call it JT Naxx :) looking for a picture album. I navigate my way through racks of clothes, shoes, toys, dishes, etc. etc. etc. and make my way to the supposed photo album aisle only to find no albums. Since I am female, I have no trouble asking for help and learn quickly that the photo albums are not in one localized spot they are scattered throughout the home goods section ...good luck!! There's my cue...instead of searching through aisle after aisle and potentially finding items to purchase that I do not need, I will leave and go to one of the stores that doesn't give me panic attacks, proceed directly to the specific aisle for photo albums and breathe a big sigh of relief as my sanity returns.

*There is potentially exciting news ahead...more details to come at a later date but in the meantime here is how my excitement comes out in words: SQUEEEEEEE!

*So, I apologize for lying to you earlier. I must have misunderstood the word 'fragment' and instead have written you a novel. Enjoy! haha!

*I hope your weekend is wonderful!
