You know how during the summer, you go to picnics and celebrations that have TONS of food, and you pile up a little bit of everything on your plate, and even so, your plate overflows with goodness (so much that you still have to go back for a little more later?) Well, my Friday Fragments are like that this week---Because it's summer and I'm so relaxed, I had a nice, big, empty plate and all kinds of "food" to choose from. Finally, I narrowed it down. [For the ins and outs of Friday Fragments, click here.]
This week, I noticed wrinkles near my eyes, for the first time (I know, I'm late. haha.) Not sure how I feel about them yet. Funny, because I can honestly say that I have never, ever noticed anyone else's wrinkles!
***Fantastic post here, called Are you 25 or Older? Time to Grow up! If you are over 25 and see yourself in these behaviors, it's never too late!
Last week, in my FF, I ranted about drive-by bloggers who just stop long enough to link up a random (not FF) post and then leave. Wouldn't you know it? Two bloggers I have never met went ahead and linked up (obviously, without reading the post.) I responded to the second one by first leaving a sincere comment on her post, and then writing, "Thank you for stopping by HPKT to link up today. In the future, though, I'd appreciate it if you actually read the post." I felt like such a beotch, but come on!
***Holy cow! Kristin (The Goat) offered up several winning fragments last week. I highly recommend you poke around over there. One of them was about The Most Harmful Drinks in America. Some of the info was the no-brainer type, but I had no idea that some of those drinks have more than 800 calories!! The article also gives sugar equivalents. For example, a Sobe Green Tea has the sugar equivalent of a half of a cherry pie! Kristin also had a really great Facebook fragment, as well as a link to one of The Pioneer Woman's always-moving, posts. Kristin, you are hands-down my Favorite Friday Fragment this week. Congratulations!
***WooHoo!! I won the Karen Neuberger socks from The Mom Jen!!! You should stop by some time; she has tons of giveaways all the time.
***Kyle came downstairs one morning last week and said that he had a wonderful dream in which he got to see and hug Grandpa 4444 again. He said it felt like it lasted about five minute. So cool...
***I loved this comment last week, from Caution, on one of my camping posts:
I camp because I am an amazingly good sport. Last weekend, while I was counting the hours until we came home and showered, Keith saw a little Shasta camper and said, "If we didn't have kids, we'd probably have something like that." I said, "If we didn't have kids, I'd be in a hotel." End of discussion.
Thanks for the LOL, Caution :)
***Remember clackers? If you missed When Bruises Are Fun (a quick video I posted), you should check it out for a laugh down Memory Lane.
WOW! I decided to try Blogger in Draft's template designer and gave Mrs.4444 Cooks a makeover in less than five minutes! It looks amazing. If you don't believe me, check out Summer's Harvest Breakfast.
