Friday Fragments

Friday Fragments is brought to you by Mrs4444!

Mommy's Idea

Guess who was the favorite Friday Fragmenter last week? Moi!

Thanks to Dunkin Donuts for the inspiration. And for this morning's coffee.

You know you're in trouble when an Eminem song comes on in the car and your 2-year-old pipes up from the backseat - "I like this song!"

No better way to start the day than being handed an entire mashed up cereal bar as said 2-year-old exits the car.

Charlie had his first holiday concert last night. It was hilarious. Of course, I didn't get a good picture because there were too many people in front of us, and then afterward he was too hyped up on christmas cookies to sit still for a good shot, so this will have to do.

I got my early christmas present - Jeter has a finalized contract to stay with the Yankees. Totally made my day week offseason. Four more months until baseball comes back!

Funny FB status of the week: An amazing movie with an AMAZING of my all time favorites ♥

Any ideas what movie she might be talking about? If I told you to guess 100 possible movies, I bet it wouldn't end up on your list.

Really? Amazing? I didn't really find anything about that movie to be amazing. Anything other than Ben Affleck, anyway. Yum.

ESPN launched a special website for women this week - espnW. I'm not sure how I feel about it. On one hand, I like that the female sportswriters have a place of their own where they can showcase their work without constantly being overshadowed by the Buster Olneys and Michael Wilbons of the world. On the other hand, I don't really think that female sports fans really need (or want!) a separate site. I'm just as capable of reading and comprehending a sports-related article as any other man out there, maybe even moreso, when the discussions turn toward sabermetrics. I think it's a bad step for them to take.

The Office totally redeemed itself with the Holiday Party episode last night. I haven't laughed so much during an episode since pre- Pam and Jim's wedding. One of the best quotes came from Michael, and I had to select it as my QOTW because it reminds me so much of my New Hampshire-raised husband, who is rather snobby when it comes to the quality of his trees :)

Michael (poking at the office christmas tree): No, no, no, no! Fake Tree! No, no, no! Holly's coming from New Hampshire! Someone from New Hampshire looks at that and thinks it's a burning cross!

Have a lovely weekend!


  1. I really hate to admit this, but I love Armageddon. About 10 years ago I watched it when wrapping Christmas presents and doesn't seem right to wrap gifts unless I'm watching it. :) How weird is that?

  2. i am with you on the ESPN thing, women understand the regular website just fine!

    congrats on your blog award! do you also have a super cool camera, or are you just a good photographer? i need to jump on that bandwagon! but then i would have to find time to learn HOW to take good pictures....

  3. Awww...Charlie is darling. And who doesn't love a two year old who can appreciate Eminem? Afterall, he WILL ve getting album of the year.

    I have a love/hate relationship with Michael. I find that I want him to SYOP talking because he just makes me cringe, yet, I can't not listen to his ridiculousness!

  4. I enjoyed the episode of The Office, too. I didn't get to watch the whole thing, but the parts I saw made me laugh.

  5. sabermetrics Huh??
    So did he mash it up just for you?
    Good office quote.
    congrats on the FF award

  6. I love your header! Are those purple chucks? WANT!
    My 9 year old girl says Enimem is the best singer EVER. I told her he's not even a singer, but she doesn't care. Help! LOL

  7. I had a good chuckle at the NH comments on The Office.
