Friday Fragments - James Bond is BACK!!!

I'm joining up with Mrs. 4444 for Friday Fragments.

  Mommy's Idea

The new James Bond movie comes out today. It is getting great reviews. Whitney and I are going to go see it during Thanksgiving break. Yes I can last that long. After all I have a photo of Skyfall on my ipad as my backdrop. I even wrote about the movie in January 2011. That's how excited I was.

I had a blog post all typed up about walking around Embassy Row in Washington DC and then I lost it when I was at the airport. I'm going to recreate it and post over the weekend hopefully.

Top Chef started this week along with The Next Iron Chef. I do believe my cooking competition show fix will be taken care of. Add that to my daily watching of The Chew and I should be ok. I hope everyone got to read my post over the weekend about seeing Carla Hall and Michael Symon at the Metro DC Cooking Show. I'm still telling people about it here. People must think I'm a stalker.

I can't believe in two weeks it is Thanksgiving. I have no room in the freezer to buy any turkey yet and I saw that Target had Butterball's at a decent price. Guess I'll have to wait another week and hopefully be able to either clear it out or get it close enough so it can thaw in the fridge and then we will brine it.

I still have to buy a Christmas tree too. Last year we threw away our old one and I need to replace it. Nothing has looked good and we always put it up the day after Thanksgiving. Just another thing to get done quickly.

I also need to get my oil changed (I love that my car tells me it is time) and I need to pick a paint color and paint a room so I can blog about it in the next two weeks. I would like to get my carpets cleaned before I decorate too. 

My conference provided me with lots of good information (it is nice when that happens) and I also got a lot of good information to study for my certification test which is scheduled for December 4.


  1. Do you live my life? I need a new tree too & need my oil changed...

    only difference? I'm not a Bond girl - I think I've seen one my whole life & its when Roger Moore was 007 - shows you how long ago that was


  2. Glad you mentioned Next Iron Chef - - - gave me the "heads up" to go set my DVR.

  3. My tree is a mess, but I am not getting a new one. My truck is due for an oil change. I just look at the sticker on the windshield. That's about as high tech as we get in Honduras.

  4. Mr. VZ and I are going to see that new Bond movie too!

    Popped in from Friday Fragments.

  5. I am going to see SkyFall tonight...hope it lives up to the hype.

  6. It is years since we went to the movies!
    Thankfully our Christmas Tree is still OK, I think it will last us out.

  7. The Bond movie is getting great reviews, I have heard it is one of the top 3 Bond movies. Perhaps DB and I will see it.

    We are looking for a new tree as well, we have two old ones in the basement and it is time to just send those on their way and start fresh.

    Have a grand weekend and so glad DC was fun and educational!

  8. Sounds like you've got a busy couple of weeks ahead of you!
    I haven't seen any Bond movies all the way through, but I have a feeling I'm going to see this one. Maybe it'll be different seeing it on the big screen.
