Friday Fragments

Mommy's Idea

I just puffy pink heart Mrs 4444's. She came up with this idea of hosting Friday Fragments and takes time every week to organize this for us, although she is a busy wife & mother and a fantastic, caring, inspiring teacher.
What's not to love?


Speaking of looooove...Valentine's Day is almost here! Are you a Valentine's Day lover or hater?
I'm a lover. I know it's a Hallmark holiday, and I agree that you should show your love for your partner every day of the year. But I just can't hate on a holiday devoted to showing love! I usually buy small gifts for my kids, and of course John and I either buy each other gifts or do something special. I figure, there's a day to celebrate Mothers, Fathers, Grandparents, etc....what's wrong with a day to celebrate romantic love?

And still on that topic....I am SO excited about this weekend! We are going to St Augustine, our favorite place, to celebrate Valentine's Day. We're going to stay in one of the cabins that we stayed in once before. It's going to be COLD, but we don't care! We will still go to the beach and stick our toes in the sand. And we'll find indoor activities to do (besides that, you naughty thing!). And we'll just enjoy being in our favorite place!

I am totally panicking about Yaya's blog disappearing. Can anyone tell me what is going on? I'm so worried about Alicia & Josh!


This week is Congenital Heart Disease Awareness Week. Please go read Cora's Story, but beware...your heart will break a little.

While we are off celebrating Valentine's Day, I have some posts scheduled so that I don't Blo NaBloPoMo! So be sure to check in this weekend. Also, ask me some questions for my upcoming Q & A post! Mrs 4444's got me started with some good ones, but I need more!


I saw this LOL Cat last night and knew it was going to be a Fragment. I LOVE this!!





I hope you all have a wonderful weekend full of LOVE!!

I am so a VDay hater...not a "hater" so to speak...that's a strong word, I just don't seem to ever get that perfect VDay so I gave up on it years ago!

But I do hope you have a fantastic weekend in St. Aug!!!

Yaya's disappearance is related to Alex's adoption. The blog was a sore spot with the agency. :o(

Enjoy your weekend, Lover!!

Jen said...

I was wondering about Yaya blog also, happy to hear she is ok.

I am not a hater of Valentine's day but I think we should take more than one day a year to show our love and not with flowers or candy.

Enjoy your weekend in St Augustine! I've been all over Fl, but never THERE! I should go... have fun! :)

I hope you have a wonderful time in St. Augustine. I have loved getting ready for Valentine's Day with my toddler. It is all new to him.

I wondered about Yaya too, and figured that it had something to do with the adoption.

That cat picture is just plain funny.

Enjoy the trip.

I used to be a VD hater but now that I have a child, it's a bit more fun. He likes doing silly little stuff for all the odd holidays.

Have a lovely trip!

Adrian's Crazy Life said...

Very cute. I especially like the LOLCat. I've been playing Friday Fragments too lately.

Unknown Mami said...

I've been freaking out about Yaya's blog too! I hope everything is alright.

Happy VD and thank you for the candy hearts!

Totally cracking up at the NaBloPoMo.
Done that for a few years now.

New Friday Follower ... wow, that makes me feel like a sheep. ;)

Keeper of the Skies Wife said...

I not a hater or lover....it comes and goes. This year I really don't care!

I'm not sure either about Yaya....I did write on her Facebook but she didn't reply to that. I'm sure it is about the adoption.

Have fun with your lover this weekend!!!!!

I'm not a huge fan of Valentine's day. Although, I think pre-marriage, I liked it.

LOVE the LOL cat :)

Mrs4444 said...

I LOVE that fat cat!

Your intro...sooooo sweet. Takes one to know one, though.

I'm with you on the Yaya thing, but I'm not worrying. I should probably open up my email and see if she replied to my question about this last weekend. I'll let you know if she answers (in fact, I'll check now and add it to my post tonight if she sent an answer.)

You are going to love your time away!! Have a great time :)

shortmama said...

Vday is kinda eh to me. My hubs gets me flowers and cards and I normally get him cards. I get a little something for my girls and thats about it!

I saw on FB that Yaya posted Hallelujah about 10 hours ago....nothing else about it though so hopefully its great news about Alex!

debi9kids said...

Yes, assuming Yaya's disappearance is because she was posting pics of Alex before he was her's legally (I know when i was a foster parent, i wasn't allowed to ever share pics of the kids with anyone ) I saw her post on FB and it sounds like everything is still going happily forward...hopefully she can post on her blog soon, just without his pics...(I'm just guessing here...)


Have a wonderful valentine's day!
