Friday Fragments!

WTH?! How is it possible that Friday is here already?! This may very well have been the quickest week on record!

I'm happy to be participating in Friday Fragments over at Half-Past Kissin' Time! If you want to play along, just click on the button below and follow the link to FUN!

This is just the BEST WEEK EVER! Birdie and Deanie arrived Wednesday and Breezy will be here today. Of course DoodleBug lives close by so she's been hopping over between classes!

Yesterday, Mother and Aunt Betty came down so we could celebrate their birthdays (Mother's was the 13th and Aunt Betty's is the 19th) and so they could spend some time with the lovelies.

I made spinach quiche with gluten free crust and fruit.

For dessert, carrot cake (all organic, gluten free and sweetened only with honey). I added up Mother, Aunt Betty and Deanie's ages (Deanie's b'day is April 1) and they equaled 185. I put 186 for a year to grow!

Make a wish and BLOW! I'm not going to make a comment about hot air or anything...

That's my BFF listening to Deanie tell all about her new job; Mimi and DoodleBug. Birdie is in the background on her computer.

Dad will be here this weekend to celebrate his birthday (which was the 11th...LOTS of March b'days in our family) and to spend some time with the lovelies!

Deanie was one of 199 employees laid off from a company in November (sucks to be low man on the totem pole) and has been looking for a job since. She has a degree in interior design but hasn't really put it to use. She has been looking for a position as an interior designer and SHE GOT ONE! She will start her new job next week and she is MAJORLY excited! So are we! Great salary, fantastic benefits, amazing company! Way to go Deanie!

The running is coming along. I've not quite mastering the art of breathing while running but I'm getting there. Running when the heat and humidity is high kind of sucks. One of the main reasons I started during the winter months was so that I would be used to it by the time the heat returned. Unfortunately, the heat never left. Because winter never showed up. Not that I'm bitter. Wait. Yes I am. Of course Deanie and Birdie have taken full advantage by spending some time at the beach!

I have been terrible about reading and commenting on your blogs! I'm so sorry! I promise to get there SOON! I've been cooking since the lovelies arrived! I have read a few but I'm not commenting on those with word verification because it takes too long. Sorry. Again!

Breezy and her artist friend Brian are working on setting up a new blog for their art- it's Different Strokes and even though it's still under construction, if you want, you can go by and start following any time! They will be featuring their individual art and various artsy posts! I'm going to help her a bit with it this weekend so stayed tuned!

That's it y'all! Gotta go enjoy my time with the lovelies! Have a fantastic weekend!
