Flowers, Fireworks, & Fragments

It's Friday Fragment Day ~ YAY!

Mommy's Idea

Tomorrow, I am going to get my hair done. This is momentous because I very rarely get anything done to my hair other than the occasional cut (and even those are few & far between). But tomorrow? Cut & highlights. Let's hope this goes well!

I'm looking forward to this holiday weekend. Last week was rough; this week has been much better and I'm hoping for a nice relaxing weekend. The kids will be coming home tomorrow. We're planning a trip to the Springs, maybe some berry picking, then fun & fireworks on Monday.

We didn't have cable for years. I just figured it was a bill we didn't need. We got the local channels, what else did we need?
Um, yeah. We got Dish Network last Fall, and now I am so addicted to so many cable shows, it's really ridiculous. And embarrassing. But true.
How did I live without Toddlers & Tiaras? Operation Repo? And most of all, Cupcake Wars?? Oh, how I love the cupcakes.

I updated my blog button scrolly thing this week. If I don't have your button, let me know so I can add it. Especially if it's cute. I LOVE cute buttons!
Also, if you're not already a follower, just one little click would change all that....you might notice I'm really close to 500, and I confess, I just love large round numbers..... -> -> ->

All of the lovely flowers pictured in this post are growing in my yard. =)

This song is special to me. Every time I hear it, I think of my kids. Even the one who's technically an adult now. It's important for them to know that I'm always here for them, and that no matter what, I have their back. This song says that so well.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

God Bless America!

Pretty pictures.

I'd be so lost without our cable. I watch the most ridiculous shows that I'm embarrassed about.

There is nothing like going to get your hair done. Enjoy! And Cupcake Wars? Yes!

Have a great weekend!

Enjoy your weekend!

The flowers are gorgeous. If the cable goes out around here it is a disaster of biblical proportions! I swear my husband sits and clutches the remote like it's a lifeline. Great Rascal Flatts song.

Um... I think I remember one time you got your hair done & it was momentous.

I love the flowers! I don't have much to speak of here in my yard, but yours are gorgeous!

Have a fab 4th celebration!

I need to get my hair done so bad..and I love that song for the some reason you do.

Found you on Friday Fragments

We gave up cable for about 5 months last fall. Sometimes I think we were better off without it. But I do enjoy having the Food Network back.

Got my hair cut and colored last week. I should have listened to her about the color. Now it's bit too dark, but it'll grow...and fade.

Don't know if you have my button or not. I don't even remember if I have code for you to grab it. But it is cute!

HOORAY! Let's see the new hairdo! Make sure you have your priorities straight and get the pics posted right when you hop out of the chair!

Sorry, can't help you on the follow--Already a groupie :)

Your flowers are gorgeous. I got lots of flower pics in CA and have a post in the hopper to share them.

You're such a sweet mommy....

Don't tell anyone, but we still don't have cable!

Hope your hair turns out great! There is nothing like a good haircut to make you feel awesome!

Adrienne said...

All of those flowers are growing in your yard? Beautiful! And good for you for going and getting your hair done! That always makes me feel pretty. :)

I can't believe I wasn't following you! Well, I fixed that!

I hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend full of fun and family. xo

I got my hair did last week too!

Great shots! Have a wonderful holiday weekend!

Kat said...

I saw your photo on Facebook and your hair looks awesome! YAY!
And yay for gorgeous flowers!
Hope you have a great and relaxing 4th!

How'd your hair come out?

I didn't have any channels for about a year and missed it but not as much as I do when there's nothing on tv now. I think the only thing that keeps me from watching even more crap is that my husband abhors reality shows.

Beautiful flowers btw.

Hope you had a happy 4th of July.
