Friday Fragments: Busy Busy

Happy Friday!

Lawn Boy and I were sitting on  picnic blanket this week and he looked over at me and said, "What are the odds that two people like you and I would end up together?"

Not sure what kind of response he was looking for, but this is what he got, "Well, you are wearing cowboy boots and I'm wearing Rainbows (flip flops) so I'm thinking pretty slim!"


*****

I am taking a half day today because I have to go to a Black Tie Optional Wedding at 4:30 this afternoon.  The bride is a friend of LB's and I promise I'm not judging, but Lawd A' Mercy, who in the world plans at black tie optional wedding at 4:30 on a FRIDAY?  Thought etiquette dictated those had to be on Saturday NIGHT! ~ Busy, Busy!


*****

We have a busy weekend on tap... wedding tonight, something fun planned with my mom and sister Evie on Saturday and a cook out here on Sunday. Thank goodness we have Monday off. I'm going to need a day of rest! ~Busy, Busy!


*****

I earned major brownie points this week because I went to LB's children's school play. It took a little doing for me to get there on a work night, but all the cards fell into place and my mom had already asked to take my kids for Grandma Time after school, so I headed over to meet him.  His daughter had asked me to go a few weeks ago and I forgot about it, but when a child specific requests something, I like to try to honor it! ~ Busy, Busy!

*****

There are so many things I could say about the person with whom we sat.. Grace and class, Leigh, remember the grace and class! ~ I will not judge, I will not judge! *winks*


*****

I went to sleep last night with my contacts in.  I don't have the kind with which you are supposed to do that.  OUCH!

Ten more days... not that I'm counting!

Holiday weekends always seem to be jam packed don't they?! We got soccer tournaments all weekend and a party at a friends on Sunday...I'm just glad nothing is here! I love that you went to LB's daughter's play...I bet she was so excited to see you there! When kids ask for something like that, it means a lot to them. :) Have a great weekend!

That is awesome that you went to the play! :) We bet that meant a lot to his daughter. Holiday weekends do tend to be exceptionally busy, don't they? Have fun at the wedding...annoying that it is black tie optional on a Friday, though!-The Dose Girls

Have fun at the wedding!

Ohh, sleeping with the contacts in. Ouch is right. I've never heard flip flops called rainbows?? And what IS up with a black tie wedding at 4:30 on a Friday?? Have a fabulous weekend!

Jan said...

Yes amazing about the wedding and requested dress, still good luck to the Bride for having her wedding how she wants it.
Glad you made it to the play in your busy week.

It seems so wrong to schedule a black-tie optional wedding not only for 4:30 on a Friday night, but on Memorial Day weekend, too! Have fun, though. ;)

So glad all the cards fell into place so you could make it to the play - but you made that little one happy! :)

Enjoy the busy, busy weekend - and thank goodness you'll have Monday to relax and recover! :)

Our last day of school was yesterday but they did start back on August 7th last year! They didn't get the waiver again and won't be starting back until the 26th (with the rest of the state) so we are looking at a long summer.

That is a very strange time for a black tie wedding but to each his on, I guess! ;)

I hate when I forget to take out my contacts...feels like you're pulling your cornea out when you take them out in the morning. Ouch.

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

Your first fragment reminded me of a video presentation of a mathematical look at the question you asked. Here's the link

You can jump to the 2 min mark for the romance connection part.
Be careful with those contacts because your weekend will even be busy if you can't see it.

Cyndy Newsome said...

Yeah, weird time for a wedding like that...hmmm!
Hope you enjoy the busy weekend!

You crack me up. I love the first one about the flip flops and cowboy boots.

Weddings are so different these days. Some people are getting married on Thursday and Fridays. I don't know if the competition is so stiff for these venues that people are having to be unique in setting dates. Also, I've heard that they offer some discounts on nights other than Saturday. 4:30 pm is early though. I think 7 pm on a Friday would have been easier to juggle for people. Hope you had a good time.

I am feeling you with the contact lens thing! And good for you for keeping your grace and class about you! Good for you!
