Friday Fragments

Happy Friday
Joining Mrs. 4444's @ Half Pass Kissin Time 
Friday Fragments! 

This is my last selfie as a unemployed person! 
I start my new job on Monday the 24th! 
I can't wait....
I'm excited to finally not be working for a crazy person 
and actually getting paid my worth.....

On another note I'm not in love with my new hair cut
It seems to bring out my five head instead of my four head! 
Oh well C'est la vie! 

I might have mentioned a time or two how much I love my Husband
These are the beautiful roses he got me for our 26th anniversary! 
They are gorgeous and smell amazing!

Sophie is not happy about my returning to work....
On Wednesday I had to go there for several hours 
She went to daycare and than was left alone while we
went to our anniversary dinner
Needless to say Thursday Sophie started her hunger strike
 in protest of the day before events
At least that is what I'm gathering...
She knows something is up
Today she is eating but hasn't left my side!!

Happy Friday!!

Wednesday Hodgepodge

Joining Joyce at From this side of the Pond today 

Happy Wednesday!

1.  Thursday marks the first day of celebrate would you rather plant a garden or go for a walk in the woods? Would either of those activities be possible on Thursday where you live?

Plant a garden....possible no still have a foot of snow in yard. But I can't wait until it's warmer to see colors sick of white! 

2. When did someone last spring something on you? (or when did you last spring something on someone?)

Probably when I was let go of my job aka warning or reasoning really!

3.  We often think of spring as a time for new beginnings. What's something you'd like to start doing this spring?

Being outdoors more....exploring WNY....learning more about where I call home. 

4. Where do you like to sit in a movie theatre? When did you last sit there, and what were you watching?

I like the back.....last movie was at Thanksgiving it was the 2nd Hunger Games movie! 

5. When you meet someone for the very first time, what do you want them to think about you?

That I'm friendly and easy to talk to.

6. March is frozen food month (yes, really!). Besides ice cream (gotta make you think a little) what's your most often purchased frozen food item?

Frozen fruit for smoothies

7. What's something you avoid?

Getting gas....I wish I lived in NJ! I always hope it's low when hubby is driving my car! Not sure why I hate it probably because it's always bad weather when I need it. 

8. Insert your own random thought here.

Today is our 26th Wedding Anniversary!! I can't believe how fast it's gone.....feels like yesterday I was a young 22 saying I do to the man of my dreams! I wouldn't change a thing I love him more and more with each day passing....never knew that was possible. He is my everything! Love you Craig! 

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Happy St. Paddy's Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day
Everyone is Irish today!
I made a collage of all my favorites

We went to Ireland in 2005 
I loved it there...
and yes I did kiss the Blarney Stone!

This is my favorite Irish Blessing!

Made Drunken Irish Stew
I'm not much of a corn beef and cabbage kind of girl! 

Sophie is dressed in her Lucky Dog Irish Tee today!

Katelyn as a toddler or as she calls it when I dressed her like a boy! 

I hope you have a wonderful day
Irish or not!

Sunday in my city

Today is the year anniversary of
A year ago today their coach and her unborn baby died in the crash
 along with the bus driver.
Many players were injured including Katelyn's BFF Amanda.
It's been a long road to recovery for her and many others.
I know today's memorial game will be emotional.
My heart is heavy remembering that tearful call from Katelyn. 
Today my heart is still heavy for Coach Quigley's family.

I'am happy these two peas in a pod will be there cheering on follow players and friends

Joining Unknown Mami today! 
Stop by and join in

Friday Fragments

 Happy Friday! 
Stop by Mrs. 4444's for more Friday Fragments

Last night was my theater group we saw
Porgy and Bess
I have to say I usually like everything
This one was not my favorite
Second half was better than first
Glad I saw it but once is enough! 

I know everyone is sick of winter
 and sick of people like me complaining about it!
It really feels like there is not end in sight...
Today there was a glimpse of Spring in my neighborhood
40's and Sun...
I turned off the heat 
Opened windows and doors
Turned on some music
Cleaned my house 
Cleaned the mud and snow residue out of garage
Sat on my porch soaking up the sun
because tomorrow we are back to winter

I wish my Girl Scout cookies would show up...
All I can think about is Thin Mints
and Samoas....she said March 1st....
I've really never known GS to be liars! 
Okay maybe not liars but procrastinators 
Delay at delivering....slackers!
Okay I'll calm down it's just cookies!

I pretty much bailed on March photo a day! 
I'm trying to look for a job and this weather
Well basically lack inspiration in the photo dept....
Maybe next month! 

Have a happy weekend!

Throw Back Thursday

Happy Thursday! 
Even though I'm looking out my window at 13 inches of fresh snow 
on top of the foot of snow still lingering in my yard from before the March Blizzard!
I'm searching for Spring! 
I took this picture on March 17, 2010
We still were living in Germany
It's down at the flower market 
One of my favorite places and memories!
Miss that place!

Wednesday, March 12, 2014


Major blizzard in Buffalo area
Schools are closed
Expecting up to 12 inches of snow!
Mother Nature is a B@$#h!

Yesterday was the calm before the storm...
It was crisp but the sun was shinning!
I abandon cleaning my house and took advantage of the Vit D

Katelyn and her friends suffering in paradise!
Today she is suffering one too many Pina Coladas! 
Don't feel bad for her....
She is in paradise!

Be smart girls....Please!

Happy Friday!

Friday Fragments
joining Mrs. 4444's over @ 

Half-Past Kissin' Time

Happy Friday! 
Just finished my 5th week of Shaun T- T25 workout video
Feeling stronger 
Feeling good
Who knows maybe I'll start a dance walk routine in my village
(probably just in my kitchen)
Loved this video made me smile!

Here's  my Day 6 and 7 Photo a day!

The sun finally showed it's face here....
It was still a little chilly but with a parka on
 I soaked up as much vitamin D I could
Of coarse I had to share my chair with SD!

This guy sits up in my hubbies office...
He flies 
He cracks nuts 
but he mostly collects dust! 

Had a job interview today....
It went really well.....
It's the perfect job.....
I really hope and pray I get it......

Happy Friday!!

March- picture a day ♣

I'm gonna try and do this 
I try every month I really do....

Day One
Something Yellow

I bought these Tulips in hope to force Spring to come
to brighten my day and house.....

Day Two 
Something borrowed

Does an idea count?
I've been on the hunt for things to style my new shelves
this is something I've been looking for as seen on Pinterest and many deco blogs...
not exactly the right color 
I might paint it another color 
but for now I like how it brings out the golds in other shelves.
