Friday Fragments - Look Two Posts From Me This Week

Slowly I'm getting back to normal which means I can blog. Thankfully Friday means Mrs. 4444 hosts fragments and I can just freestyle. She had a nifty summer button on her website this week but I couldn't figure out the html for it so I stuck with the winter one.

Half-Past Kissin' Time

I went to a bridal shower last month for our volunteer coordinator at church. I didn't expect to get a wedding invitation which came this week. Do I have to buy another gift? I don't get invited to many weddings so not sure of the protocol.

Whitney is gearing up for her trip to New York City next week. Her roommate already got tickets for them to see Newsies but she's got her list of all the other shows she wants to try and see. There is something called student rush where students can go early in the morning and try and get discounted tickets. So she has planned to try and do that.

We tried two new recipes this week and both were failures. We made whole wheat blueberry pancakes and they just were too wheat tasting. And the other failure was a flatbread pizza that just didn't work. Makes me worried to try the other new recipe that we picked out.

We had some of the most beautiful flower arrangements for my boss's memorial service. So our office has smelled like a florist shop for a week. Sadly the flowers are gone. But the huge peace lily that was given to us sits in the front office and looks great.

Happy Father's Day to all you dads out there. Hope your day is great.


  1. Actually yes, protocol is to buy another gift for the wedding.

    I want to be a student to get discounted broadway tickets :)

  2. We use rush tickets all of the time. The seats aren't the greatest but you can enjoy the shows at a discount. Yes a wedding gift is order - many brides now love gift certificates to home improvement stores.

  3. I would totally love to go see some Broadway plays!!

  4. I think if you're invited to a shower, you can pretty much count on getting an invite to the wedding. Of course, you're not obligated to go but if you go, then a gift is in order.
    I've not heard of rush tickets. Is that the same as going to the TKTX box office?
    Isn't that the saddest thing about funerals... the flowers are so pretty but kind of a waste of money yet you feel like they are needed. {sigh} We received a beautiful orchid plant when my dad passed away. It was so pretty but it just reminded me of him dying. Which I knew was of course not the giver's intention but still.
    Have a great weekend!

  5. Yep, like several others said, another gift is in order. How exciting with the upcoming New York trip.

    We have success and failures too with recipes, but always good to check out new ones, you never know if you'll hit on a good one!


  6. It is usually a gift for the shower and cash for the wedding gift.
    I have had trouble with wheat pancakes and pretty much wheat anything.
    I get premade pizza dough from Trader Joes. It is inexpensive and tasty.
    I am nursing the plants we were given when my passed away.
    Have a great weekend.

  7. Cash is nice for the wedding gift. Weddings can be expensive...

    Sorry to hear about the passing of your boss!

    I've updated the button :) Thanks for reminding me :) and thanks for linking up! Have a great weekend.
