Friday Fragments

Mommy's Idea

Friday Fragments:  I remembered this week!  YAY, me!

Adoration:  I participated at our parish when we lived in SC.  I had been watching the openings here, so I watched,  I signed up, and went on Monday.  More on this in an upcoming post.

I won!  Look what I won over at The Charming Tyrants:

 The butterfly card is what it came inside.  I'm not sure if she made the card herself, but I'm definitely going to keep's too incredibly pretty to throw away!  I may frame it and put it in one of my rooms at school.  Oh, and the gift card was $20!

I'm trying to win: A blog make-over give away at Rebecca's.  She just got a new makeover for her blog compliments of Kelsey, and it looks GREAT.  Go visit and see how wonderful it looks!  Also, go check out Kim's flickr account...she has some really cool pictures!

IRL friend:  Sunday, YS & I met one of my young blogging friends for Mass.  Ashley is a student at the same university MS attends.  She is incredibly wise beyond her years and has a heart as big as Texas.  We attended mass, then went to Panera for breakfast.  The strength of her faith at her age astounds me.   It was really good to meet her! 

Seeing stars...almost:  The special ed. class at one of my schools went on a field trip Wednesday to a radio station.  While they were there, they ran into in "Chesney".  Kenny is from this area, and went to the same college that I did...I just missed him by a couple of years.  The teacher said that he stopped and talked to all of the kids.  I knew I should've gone on that field trip!
Here's a song that he wrote about our alma mater:

It's just too bad he didn't use pictures of the university and the actual fraternity house...maybe because the house was a dump!


  1. I hear some peace in your writing today!

  2. Yay for adoration! That is probably what I miss the most since I moved. I haven't been able to find a place around here that does it.

  3. Congrats on the Adoration hour!! It's my sanity.

  4. Adoration AND Kenny Chesney in the same post - LOVE it!

  5. congrats on the Barnes and Noble card. I love that place. Use it wisely.

  6. I've been following Ashley's blog for some time now and I agree--she seems like a great young woman. I think it would be really a wonderful thing to actually meet some of the folks whose blogs I follow! Manybe some day...

  7. No I did not make the card. It was a leftover from many years ago, when people used to write each other notes and actually sent them via snail mail. Instead of e-mail and instant messaging. I think it was from Current. A catalog company that sells/sold stationery, gift wrap, etc.

  8. How crazy to come so close to meeting Kenny Chesney twice.

    Hope you win the blog makeover. I've been thinking about getting mine done, but I'm just not sure what I want yet.

    The card is beautiful.

    Happy Friday!

  9. Congrats on winning the gift card! The butterfly card is beautiful!
