Friday Fragments: Episode #182

Mommy's Idea

Got tidbits? Fragments? Miscellany? Here's you chance to unload them. I highly recommend it; fragging is good for the soul and a wonderful way to start the weekend. Thanks for stopping by. [First time fragmenting? Please click on the tab above and check out the particulars.]

Happy Friday! It's very happy over here, I assure you. Can't tell you why yet (I've been sworn to secrecy for another couple of weeks, and no; I'm not pregnant.) Stay tuned.


Kendall got her first "real" job! She going to work at Dairy Queen! Darn--another reason to go out for ice cream....


In case you missed it, be sure to enter my giveaway for some delicious cake pops! You can enter until midnight on Friday night.


Mr.4444 is a self-professed "flashlight whore." He has at least ten of them, but I'm certain he'll never buy a different one than his new favorite, which he picked up at our local Batteries Plus store:

It has 235 lumens (whatever those are), and even I can't argue with its impressiveness.  At $29.95, it's by far the "least-expensive, brightest flashlight" we've ever seen. Personally, I think it would make a fantastic Valentines Day for the man in your life. (Seriously; what man doesn't love flashlights?haha)


I watched the documentary, Forks Over Knives, via Netflix last week, and I'm very intrigued; I would love to try a diet free of dairy and animal products, just to see what it does for me. It's probably tough to pull off, though. What do you think? If nothing else, I recommend the movie--It's very informative.


Mr.4444 made a wonderful crock pot Pot Roast this week--It was a big hit all around, further reason why the previous fragment would likely be vetoed.


Want to know a simple way to increase your credit rating? (This tip comes from my lovely neighbor, Nancy, who is a realtor.) When you're using your debit card in a store and are given the "debit or credit?" option, choose credit. [Update: According to my friend Michelle, of Honest and Truly, this is not true! See her comment below for specifics.]


Kyle is still my friend on Facebook. The "rules" for this are:  I am not allowed to comment on his wall posts or Like anything before anyone else does. Okay, got it.

Alrighty then! Now it's your turn; feel free to link up and visit some of the nicest folks I know! Have a great weekend.

  1. I, too, am happy it's Friday. This would have been a bear of a week on a normal week, but it's also Report Card week!- YAY!

    My first job was working at Ben & Jerry's. We used to swap Blizzards for sundaes with the kids who worked at DQ.

    Kyle is better than me. I will not show my mom how to get on fb, because I do not want to be her friend!
