Bits n Pieces

It's FRIDAY!!!!!  and I'm getting my fragments on with Mrs. 4444's!
Mommy's Idea

Guess what dummy forgot to wash the conditioner out of her hair this morning?  ...uuummm... yeah, me.  It's not too bad though; just looks like I put a ton of hairspray on top of my head.  What?  I got distracted by shaving my legs...

Leah turned 3 yesterday (wow), and we are having her party tomorrow!  She is so excited.  She keeps asking me about the decorations and the theme and telling me all about her party.  We are going back to the same park/lake/picnic area we went to last year, and we are having an Isa's Garden (from Dora) themed party.  The kids are going to make flower garden t-shirts with fingerprints!  I can't wait!

and I am going to make a promise on here that I truly want to uphold -- with her party I am going to enjoy it and not stress out over every little detail; I am going to let the kids play when they don't want to play my game; I am not going to be the overbearing annoying mommy I hope so

I tried to get my lazy butt hubby to type out this next fragment so he could be a 'guest fragmenter' and tell the story in his own words ... but he's a lazy butt, so I guess you'll just have to live with me telling the story.

The other day, Andrew took Leah with him to get her antibiotics from the store.  While they were standing in line, Leah made an amazing discovery ... Daddy's pants have pockets in them!  She shoved her hand in Andrew's pocket and proclaimed "It's so big Daddy!"

Andrew told me -- "The one thing you don't want to hear from your 3 year old as she puts her hand in your pocket at the store is 'it's soooo big'".  I died laughing, for real!

Have you heard about the coolest new writing prompt in all of blog land?  Let me introduce you!  

Self Reflection Tuesdays is the brain child from my bloggy and IRL friend Lisa to battle blog brain block.  Next week's theme is -- If you were given one superpower for only 24 hours, what would your power be and how would you use it?  Give us examples of your new found skills ...  it doesn't matter if you are saving the world or the kitty cat in the tree.

We would love to have you come play along on Tuesday!

I don't know if you knew or not, but I'm still waiting to hear back from the job interview in Birmingham.  Well, guess what?  I got a call this past Monday from another lab in Birmingham, and I have an interview with them this Monday!  Yay!  I have a good feeling about this one.  and I kinda want the first company to call and offer me the job after I take another one so I can say NO and laugh in their face.  Might make up a little bit for the torture of waiting the last 4 MONTHS ... and the fact that it has been 3 weeks since my interview with absolutely nothing from them ...

I'll leave you with a picture of my little mess ... see I even changed her (name) on the side from Audrey 'the baby' to Audrey 'the mess'

Happy Weekend!



  1. The shaving the legs business always distracts me, too!

    Good luck on the jobs!

  2. How funny... I never even use conditioner, just in case. LOL

  3. Good luck on Monday! Waiting for 3wks to hear back is ridiculous.

    LOL ~ She's a cute little mess! :)

  4. OMG I almost fell off the couch when I read the Andrew story. That is fantastic. Save that gem for when she starts dating, you'll have so much leverage!

  5. How is it that such tiny people can embarrass us in the absolute worst places. So funny!
    The baby is the cutest little mess!
    We had a Dora Party for Avery this year and a Diego party for our little Jim..
    That Dora sure does have staying power; My grand daughter Julia is now 10 and I remember taking her to the live show when she was 2..
    Have a good time and some one told me this the other day as I was having a meltdown...if I worry all day will the outcome be any different than if I did something fun all day. It really freaked me out and I swear I have wasted 1/2 my life worrying. You would think somebody would have told me this sooner.
    Have a great party and don't worry!
