Friday Fragments - Baby Steps in High Heels

Friday Fragments

Because I’m too tired today …

Mommy's Idea

-What I get for going away on business: I left a sweet, ever-so-loving baby girl. I came home to a … zombie child. No, really. Husband taught her to bury her face in his neck, shake it savagely with her mouth open and make zombie noises. At least it’s almost Halloween. And, it is kinda cute.

-Speaking of almost Halloween, hello fall weather! Thank God the high humidity and hot temperatures has finally passed. And, by fall weather, I obviously mean that today the high will only be 88 degrees. That’s Texas for you.

-Husband: It’s finally fall weather! Red wine, evening walks, pumpkin beer, sitting on the porch, being outside and not melting, fall festivals … we’re going to have so much fun!

-Also speaking of Halloween, I LOVE this time of year. Baby has two costumes and at least a half dozen shirts for this particular holiday. I’m barely resisting temptation to buy her the Thanksgiving tutus and “I’m stuffed” shirts that I’ve been seeing.

-We’re going to our first fall festival tomorrow, and I’m making my first chicken and dumplings recipe for a cook off. Um, we’ll see how it goes. The first hiccup? Husband won’t eat dumplings or any “soggy bread” type foods. I’m substituting potato gnocchi, but it’s completely experimental. I don’t even know how to transport a hot food item to a destination that’s 2 hours away. I think I probably need to buy a crock pot today …

-Enfamil: seriously? If you’re going to switch to refillable tubs, the least you could do would be to actually sell the refills for said tubs. Okay, maybe it’s the stores in my area – every single store – but it’s a little irritating.

-Fisher Price: really? Recalling 10 million items? And I was the genius who bought a FP toy right after reading about the recall yesterday. I guess we all have our moments. Luckily, I don’t think it was on the recall list.

-Wanna be a Macaroni Kid Publisher Mom? Ask me how you can write, edit, publish AND make money! It’s fun and easy!

-Mabel’s Labels: I LOVE YOU! I honestly thought it would just be neat to do one of my first reviews with you. But, you have transformed my life. No more writing and rewriting Baby’s name of every single item that goes to day care. Just slap a label on, and we’re good to go. Thanks!

-Baby: Not sure why you loved the diced apples I fed you last night, but spit them in my face this morning. You don’t like them cold? Is that it? Or you just like making your mama guess? Either way, you sure are cute lately.

-Happy Friday Fragments, y’all!


  1. The monster thing is cute! :)

    I would kinda like to learn how to make money at this blogging business, I guess it just depends on how much time, and stuff it will take! :)

    Have fun at your fall festival! :) Sounds like a blast!

  2. Love the name of your blog!!

    I'm loving Halloween too! Except for the fact that it's stinking hard to find a costume for my Baby, who, at 7 months is still just growing into 3-6 month clothing.

    Hope you're having a great weekend. =)

  3. I bet that baby zombie thing is cute!! Two costumes?? What are they?

    I hope you had fun at the fall festival!

  4. The monster noises are cute; leave it to Dad's! I have been temped by the cute Thanksgiving shirts too..I was smart with the costumes. I have 11 grand children; I bought very good costumes for the first 2 every year( 1 boy; 1 girl)..the 2 oldest get new ones and there seems to be one for all the little ones. It has become a tradition and that is kind of nice.
    We went to the pumpkin patch today..the first chilly day we have had!
    I am a new visitor and follower from FF.
    Have a great week..

  5. I saw your mom at church this weekend while Eli and I were in town for Come & Take It. Missed seeing y'all!
