Go Gators! But not to the springs....I prefer they stay reptile-free.


Mommy's Idea

I started reading blogs tonight and saw a Friday Fragments post. "Huh?" I thought. "It's not Friday yet!" And then I checked the computer and realized...um, yep. Sure is. Duh! That's what kind of week it's been 'round here!
TGIFragging Time!



My goal for this long Labor Day weekend is to spend some quality, one-on-one time with each of my kids. I'll let you know how successful I am on this endeavor.



I found out from Brainella the Librarian that the time has come! Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Lattes are here! Oh happy day!


Gator football starts this weekend. This means 99.9% of my conversations with John will be about Gator football. He eats, sleeps, and breathes Gator football. I love it; he is obsessed.
My daughters are going to this game with my niece and her fiance. They're going to have a great time!



Natalie loved my post from yesterday, I Want - I Need - I Love, and suggested I turn it into a weekly meme. Would anyone else be interested in that? I did have fun with it! And yes, my friends, if I ever do find that money tree, I will definitely share!



Anyone have awesomely fun Labor Day plans? We're planning to go to the Springs on Monday, and maybe grilling out while we're there.

Hope you all have a great one!

Sounds good to me.

We are having a Picnic In The Park event this weekend which youngling and I are thoroughly looking forward to.

Is it true that everyone wears White for Labour day in the USA?

Take care

Ha ha...I put my FF post up at 10PM on Thursday b/c that's when Mrs. 4's gets the link up. Friday mornings can be crazy!

Isn't it fun that college football is here!?! Enjoy a latte and your kids this weekend. XO!

I'm sorry, I can no longer read your blog now that I know you're a gator fan. You guys chomped the heck out of my Bearcats last year :(

Just (mostly) kidding. Hope you have a great weekend and get all of that special time in.

You know, the pumpkin spice lattes have been available for three days already and I've not had one yet. How much willpower do I have!? :) I think today is the day, though...

I'm a Bama fan. No booing please. :)
Have a great weekend!

Rebecca Jo said...

Have fun with that time with your kiddos! That's what makes the days so special!

Football craze is kicking in around here too this weekend... me? could care less! :) Just give me a book or knitting & I'm happy - year round!

i can't wait for football to start. I love it almost as much as my husband.

He & Me + 3 said...

Yeah for football. I am so glad it is here...that means fall is here. Woo hoo. Yeah also for pumpkin spice at Starbucks. YUM
I hope you get your one on one time...that sounds fun...but we will be spending our weekend at the soccer fields. Fun but not the way I wanted to spend all weekend.

I say go for the new I want - I need - I love weekly meme - I'll do it :)

No big plans for us. My hubby has been on the road so much lately that we just want to have some down time for a change. Enjoy your weekend!

Debby said...

We don't have any plans for the weekend other then Costco tonight!
Enjoy your Pumpkin Spice Lattes.

One-on-one quality time is a great goal for the weekend! I need to spend more quality time with my kids. We're together all the time, but it's rarely one-on-one.

The Crazy Coxes said...

One on one time with the kids sounds like a good weekend!
I hope it's wonderful!

Myya said...

Yay for Pumpkion Spice, but when I asked for Eggnog Chai they told me not until the end of November... BOOO!!! I would link up to your I need, I want I love!!! Have a great weekend :)

I'm so happy that the pumpkin spice latte is available for you. Sometimes it's the little things :)

Have a fun weekend. I'm going to do very little, but I hope to spend at least half a day taking photos.

The I Want... post is pretty cool, but I wouldn't do it more than once probably. Just being honest!

I am so excited about pumpkin spice lattes at SB's. I love this time of year when everything smells like cinnamon :D The I Want - I Need - I Love post was really cute.

Oh my goodness, I can't wait for some pumpkin spice!!! So how is it going with spending time with each child? That is so important and such a blessing! You will feel so good (and so will your kids) if you succeed at your goal this weekend. I try to do that each day, you know, at least a few minutes for an activity with each. This seems especially important with my almost 8-year-old who often gets slighted in the attention department since we have two babies around here.

P.S. Roll Tide. :P
