Friday Fragments

Joining up with Mrs. 4444 and the Friday Fragments! Woohoo!

Mommy's Idea

I'm actually writing these early since I catch a plane on Friday to go to Washington DC. My plans are to spend a day in a test review session, and then three days in meetings. Sunday I have the day to explore until the evening activity for the conference. I was hoping to go to the Library of Congress on Sunday but they aren't open. And the restaurant I wanted to try isn't open on Sunday either. Boo.

We gave out lots of candy at work on Wednesday and still have leftovers at home. We were a chocolate free zone at work which helped for the two hours I was handing out candy. I didn't like the stuff we were giving out so no nibbling here! :)

Somehow I watched Dancing with the Stars results show this week. Reminded me once again why I wasn't watching the show.

The weather here is absolutely gorgeous. Too bad I'm leaving to go to much colder temperatures.

I got my hair colored Tuesday so I wouldn't look horrible for my trip. I love the color and am quite happy with the girl who did it. Unfortunately she graduates in two weeks so won't be there the next time I need it done. She had ORANGE hair and looked quite stunning. Oh to be young and not a care in the world.

Dan has lots of leftovers in the freezer for him to eat while I'm gone. He is a great cook but if it is just him I know he won't really cook real meals. So this way he will eat well.

Stupid criminal is a duo this week. Two guys robbed a house and drove away. Unfortunately they got lost in the neighborhood and kept driving by the house they robbed. Then the police who were investigating stopped them and found all the stuff. Guess they should have gotten a GPS.

And because I wanted to end the blog with cute pictures, here's one of a totally awesome beagle puppy (not my own).

Because we all need a little sweetness in our lives.


  1. I guess you don't like Notre Dame about right now.

    But as for me, having lived in Indiana for 26 years, I do like them and am happy to see them returning to power.

    Yes, I watched the game. I may not go as far as calling it a butt whipping, but I will say this - - - I was never afraid Notre Dame was gonna lose. I felt they had the game well in hand.

    Don't fret too much - - - teams have cyclical ups and downs. The Sooners are a great program with lots of tradition and history. They have Bob Stoops.

    They'll be back.

  2. Enjoy your trip, be safe and have fun!

  3. I like the older rooms! Bigger!

    I was in Washington for just one day once and we walked and walked and's such a beautiful city and so much to see!
