Short Skirts, Glitter & Candy!

I don't have any fragments.
All I have is scraps.
Do you do that?
See something or hear something and then dig around for something to write it down on so you won't forget?
And now, all I have are little pieces of bank deposit slips and Costco receipts with cryptic scribbling.

Head on over and see Mrs. 4444 though.
She's the Queen of Friday Fragments


* Girls -
If it's cold enough to wear your Uggs, it's too cold to wear that little sash short skirt.
And if it's so dang hot that you have to wear shorts with a 1 1/2 inch inseam, then it's too hot for Uggs.

 * I went to Michael's yesterday - the official store of Martha Stewart glitter - to pick up the glitter for my Thanksgiving glitter corn.
I wandered around the store for 20 minutes and couldn't find the glitter.
They had Snuggies,
2010 Calendars for $1
Feather Boas
and Recipe Boxes...........
What does a snuggy have to do with crafts?  Unless you are going to glitterize it!

 *Trammell followed doctor's orders.
He went without dairy for 2 weeks.
Then, as instructed, he had some milk and ice cream last Saturday.
Sunday, he was throwing up.
Monday he threw up.
Wednesday he threw up.
And now he has what he describes as "morning sickness."
He's nauseous in the morning and then later in the early evening.
THAT's just not right!

* I've gained a couple of pounds.
I am now eligible to give blood - if you need any.
So you think it has anything to do with my bedside table?

* I'm on a new kick.  I love 3 Muskateers.
This is extremely weird, because I don't even like chocolate.
I eat about one piece a month.
And plus - 3 Muskateers are on the bottom of the chocolate food chain.
When I was little, sorting through Halloween candy - out of the three -
Snickers was number one with it's nuts, caramel, nougat and chocolate.
Milky Way was #2 because it had the caramel and nougat but lacked the nuts
and 3 Muskateers was the worst because of the lack of ingredients.
Who wants JUST nougat????
What is nougat?
I don't know.  But this week, I like it.

* Pretty much, I'm mom of the year.
College has been in session 6 weeks and I'm putting my 2nd round of care packages in the mail to the boys.
And there is good stuff in there.
I'm sending Tums, Prilosec, Shampoo, Toothpaste, Emergen-C but wait -
I'm also sending a tattoo sleeve
a make your own skeleton candy necklace kit, drinking glasses with skulls on them, Halloween pasta, decorations, and candy.  Aren't I awesome?  Where's my crown?

Well, everyone is calling me.
Parker is sick and wants me to pick him up from school.
Trammell is dry heaving outside his apartment.
And Garrett - well, who knows.

Happy Friday!

I now want to bedazzle my Snuggie!!!

I think its so weird how our tastes change.. I'll go through "phases" on things I hate & then LOVEEEEE.. then hate again soon after.

Mama Badger said...

If it's a snuggie for two you could personalize each side. You know, glitter on one side and uhm, yeah, I don't know what you'd put on the other side. A fly?

Poor Trammel. Ice cream should heal, not cause pain.

valerie said...

I'll trade you your Musketeers for my Milky ways. Hope Trammell feels better soon! And Parker.

Danelle said...

I wonder if you could bedazzle the corn? You know, in case you never find the glitter. We've had lots of sickos around here lately, but ours only get sick in the middle of the night when I'm trying to sleep. Hope yours are all feeling better soon.

3 Muskateers are way down on the chocolate chain. I also ordered my candy the way you do. lol

Poor Trammell. That so sucks.

You are an awesome mom!

Happy Friday!

Happy Happy Post :)

I totally loved the beginning of the post about the UGGS (those are the leathery/furry boots right?)

What is up with the short shorts any way? I am appalled by the length (or lack thereof)! WOW, that was funny!

3 Musketeers are so delectable!
I love Mounds and Almond Joy's too :)

Happy weekend to you and yours!

On the Uggs - I couldn't have said it better myself.

I completely agree with placing 3 Musketeers on the bottom of the chocolate candy chain. Although, I am really interested in trying the new mint version.

happened again - I read too fast.
I thought you wrote
"Snuggies 2010 Calendars"
Now if no one has thought of that yet someone should. 12 months of snuggies - what a gift.

Donna said...

You're a good mom! I'm getting ready to send my niece a care package. She's in her freshman year. I loved getting them when I was in school (all one or two of them!!).
Have a nice weekend!

Unknown Mami said...

I am so with you on the Uggs guidelines. I think they should have your advice printed on the side of the box.

Karen MEG said...

Nougat, what is nougat??!! You're hilarious. I wish my bedside table were that well equipped.

And how cool are those tattoo sleeves!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Julianna said...

Bedazzleing a sunggie seems like such a good idea until you try and sunggle it. Ever tried to snuggle metal gem settings? Don't.

Yes, I also have random bank statements with blog notes on them.

And, your Mom of the year plaque is on it's way :) -J

Poor kid! That's awful!

You are really making me look bad; I've only sent one care package, and it wasn't nearly that awesome. Where'd you get the tattoo sleeves?

Glitter corn??
