Friday Fragments

It's Friday again! This week went by verrry slowly for me.

Since my thoughts seem to be quite fragmented, I decided to join in Mrs 4444's Friday Fragments today. Check it out over at Half Past Kissin' Time.

* J and I decided to go out tonight for Valentine's Day and hopefully avoid the crowds that will be out on Saturday night.

* We are going to Manatee Springs tomorrow with hopes of actually seeing some manatees! The time is right, let's hope the manatees cooperate.

* We're planning on going to the Horse Sanctuary and the Flea Market this weekend, too. It'll be a nice weekend of doing things we enjoy. (I heard that thought, ya perv!)

* We are doing the March for Babies next month and I decided to start a team for the unit in which I work at the hospital. It's a big job, and it's keeping me busy, but it'll be worth it when we raise big money for the babies! Today we're having a Used Book Sale, I'll be running that while I should be sleeping. I will keep you posted on our progress, and if you'd like to donate, there's a widget on my sidebar. (that sounds funny. Widget in my sidebar. Is that painful? Is that a widget in your sidebar, or are you just happy to see me?) If you're new to my blog, read here to see why this is a very important cause for our family. Oh, and if you'd like to add my widget to your blog, you are more than welcome to do so!

* I made Octopus hot dogs for the kids' snack one day this week. They loved it! I served goldfish crackers 'swimming' on the side. So cute!

Have a GREAT weekend!

I think that was very smart for you to go out to dinner early...you know that Saturday will be a madhouse! With Chris just getting home late last night after being gone all week, I'm just going to cook a pot roast for Saturday, along with some red velvet cupcakes. He's been eating out all week, so I know he craves some homecooking, even if it is MINE! LOL!

Sounds like you have some fun things planned...enjoy your time together and have a wonderful weekend!

I think the hotdogs are adorable & the march you're doing is fantastic! I hope you have a wonderful weekend and everything you have planned 'cooperates' with you!

Happy Valentines day!!!!

Good job for stepping up and taking on the March cause. Have a wonderful weekend. I love those hot dogs, but I'm afraid my child wouldn't eat them. . . she doesn't really know what hot dogs consist of and would probably think it is a baby octopus

Octodogs and fish crackers! Adorable!
I went back and read the post about baby JW. So sad. Thank you for sharing it. It brought back memories of my granddaughter. She was born premie, but luckily she survived, being the fighter that she is. And today you would never know how she struggled when she entered this world.

We have to skip Valentine's this year, hubby had to work. I don't knoe if I could eat food that had a face. i might want to name it.

Okay, I'm totally stealing your hot dog octopus idea, I think the kids will dig them. Have a great pre V day dinner. Definitely better than braving the crowds.

Love the hot dog octopus' how cute!

Have fun for V-Day. I think we will just be home with the kids, no date night :-( We do have a Winter Carnival going on and my oldest will be in the parade so that is our exciting V-Day Event!

Have a great weekend!
