Friday Fragments, Episode #173
Do I look fat in these fragments? If you're like me and you celebrated Thanksgiving today (or yesterday for that matter), you're still full from your feast. Hopefully, unloading fragments will help with the bloat. [New to Friday Fragments? Please embrace the FF philosophy and rules here. (Or you will be doomed.)]
***WELCOME, new fragmenters,Kristin, of Feast on Farrago and Homegrown Family. I'm glad you found your way here! :)
***Last weekend, I threw my cellphone into a toilet. My search for a new phone is well-documented on G+ and only gets me worked up, so I won't go into details here, except to say that I'm not happy with the (demo) that I was talked into by my current carrier. It's going back asap; I want the Samsung Galaxy Skyrocket, and I'm not going to settle for anything else (except maybe the Nexus).
***Tonight, I met a brand-new blogger and young mom who's having a Zoobies Blanket Pet Giveaway. If you are grateful for those who helped you get on your blogging "feet" way back when, please stop by A Young Mom's Journey and welcome her to blogland! (You do not need a blog to enter the giveaway, and the blanket pets are adorable.)
***I lost all of my phone contacts; if you haven't heard from me lately, that might be why. Text me if you'd like to help me put things back in order. Thanks.
***Melanie Shebel shared a link to 36 Funny Email Signatures, which I found inspiring and very funny. If only I could choose just the right one. Here are my top four choices:
1) Save time; see it my way!
2) Everything is always okay in the end, if it's not, then it's not the end.
3) Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes. That way, you're a mile away, and you have their shoes too.
***I'm especially grateful today (after reading contrary status updates elsewhere) that it never occurs to me that holiday gatherings in my family are experiences to be endured. We had a nice time today (and watching the Packers win didn't hurt).
***Amy Austin of Pretty Babies shared Mouthing Off: If Pizza is a Vegetable, Then Why Am I Getting Fat Eating DiGiorno? on Google+ this week. Very funny.
***My daughter, Kendall, was featured on both HPKT and Mrs.4444 Cooks this week. If you missed her very impressive parking job or Turkey cake pops, I highly recommend them.
***I am not going Black Friday shopping, but I am excited about a Christmas gift vlog I'm working on. It's going to have my favorite-favorite "stuff" lately; things that make great gifts. Keeping in mind that vlogs should be relatively brief (a couple of minutes), I'll be working to include only the best stuff (and no compensated reviews). If you do the same, let me know, and I'll share yours in my post.
Okay, it's your turn to purge! FRIDAY FRAGMENTS POSTS ONLY, PLEASE. All others (or those not following the guidelines) will be deleted.
