Back to Fragmentin' on Friday and Feelin' Good!

Mommy's Idea

I missed last week... but I'm catching up this week!! It's Friday Fragments time!! And let's go ahead and Feel Good while we're at it!! Fragment:

It can be really tough eating in a restaurant with an active 2 year old. Zach wants to climb under the table, run around, talk to people, look through windows- everything but eat or color. We ate at Red Robin the other night and they had him hooked. Nickelodeon cartoons. No sound- just the animation. And he stayed mostly quiet and calm. Mostly.
And what does it take to keep grown ups entertained? We had lunch with Jeff's parents on Sunday after church... they were very enthralled with the kid's activities placemat...
To finish up my Numbers post from yesterday...
Cholesterol 140
Triglycerides 95
LDL 77
HDL 44
You can read up on cholesterol and see that most of my numbers are really good! I need to work on my HDL- the good cholesterol. Gotta get that number up!
Feel Good:
My kids being silly together always makes me feel good! It might look like they are experimenting with motherhood... but they're not. Know what they are doing?

Hiding their balls. For realz, yo.

Feel Good Fragment:

I got an award!! I love blog awards... my friend Mary at Clean Shavings has honored me with the Kreativ Blogger award. Thank you!! Go visit her- she's is sometimes fun, sometimes passionate, very open and honest about her life, sometimes serious, sometimes frivolous.

I apparently need to tell you 7 things about myself and then pass this on to 7 other bloggers.

1. I was born in California.

2. I've discovered Poland Spring sparkling water with fruity flavor essence. My favorite is Raspberry Lime- especially if I add a wedge of real lime!

3. I often have bonus posts and pics and such on my Facebook fan page. At first, I wasn't sure I would use my fan page, but I like having a place where I can write Notes about eating, exercise, frustrations and get pretty immediate feedback. So if you aren't a fan yet, I'd love it if you'd join us!

4. Jeff has me watching Battlestar Galactica now. I'm hooked- thanks to those who recommended it (I think it was C. Beth and Mimbles)!

5. I've been asked to do something for my church that I've never done before. I haven't made my final decision to do it- but am really leaning towards it. Actually, by the time this posts, the decision will be made!

6. One of my favorite books growing up was The Album of Horses. I had a hard cover copy of it and lost track of it years ago. I named every horse in it and made up stories about them. I used to pretend that our apartment stairwell was a stable. I miss that book.

7. They have turned the air up FULL BLAST at work. It's now loud in my office and cold- even with my space heater going full blast- which adds to the loudness. I've put in a request to have my vent closed. I'm not usually one to be cold- but I'm icy!

And 7 blogs to pass this along to would be...

The Girl Next Door Grows Up

Mellodee Musings

Away We Go

Whacked Daddy Mocha Dad

Final Fragment
I'd love some ideas. I've been feeling stuck about what to do for my next Facebook inspiration picture. I've done "You are beautiful." "You deserve joy!" ""You are loved" "You inspire" and "You are stronger" I want to do another but am feeling stuck... so what are short phrases you most want to hear that lift you? Photobucket

I still have my hardcover "The Album of Horses" :-)

Battle Star Galactica watching may be partly my fault - no doubt I tweeted on the subject on occasion. It was one of those things that I watched because I really wanted to know what happened next but which also drove me nuts because there were characters I COULD NOT STAND and writing choices that made me want to throw things at the TV. But on the whole it's pretty cool :-)

What's going to be next after that? If you haven't yet seen Farscape then you should!

Love the kid pic!

I wanna try Red Robin. They aren't in my area yet!

michelle said...

Those numbers kick butt! Congratulations!

There was always a chunk of time in each of our kids' lives when I kept them far far away from restaurants and grocery stores. It passes

I love the crayon in Grandma's manicured hand.

Have a great weekend.

Phrase: "You control happiness" ?
"Live, Laugh, Love"

yodaobi said...

OOH here is a suggestion... How about you are funny or silly... Inspiration from your lovely kids.
I still love hiding balls up jumpers

The Crazy Coxes said...

The Drama Mama said...

COngrats on your award! I enjoyed your post.

Megan said...

Wooohoo! for Red Robin activity mats. haha!

Mary P (Barnmaven) said...

Nice numbers!

I also have my hard copy of Album of Horses, plus almost every other book Marguerite Henry wrote and Wesley Dennis illustrated. More in common, haha!

Some ideas for inspirations:
"What makes you stronger...makes you stronger!"
"You are one of God's miracles."
"I love my life."

Mary P (Barnmaven) said...

@mimbles AGREE with the Farscape recommendation! I have every season but the first one on DVD, Liz! Just sayin...

J.B. said...

I second the others in their congrats on your number and your adorable children.

Poland Spring is my favorite plain water. I love it when i travel and find that.

I seem to be a one word person instead of [phrases. How about Gracefilled, Gratitude, Peace and Abundance?
I'm from FGF. Love your Frags.

C. Beth said...

Thanks for the award! And yes, Galactica is the coolest show EVAH.

An inspirational quote: "You are enough."

Rieshy said...

Funny you should mention Battlestar Galactica. My husband showed it to our teens recently. You know, cultural education- It's a parent's job.

They enjoyed laughing.

Prairiemaid said...

I like Red Robin and love the kids' picture. Very cute.

Amy said...

You matter.
You rock.
You make a difference.
You can do it.
You deserve it.

(Cheesy, but I gotta say it...)
You complete me.

Anonymous said...

I forgot to say Thank You for the award!!!

Now I am going to say your facebook sign should read:
You are a dork! (to me)

Eternal Lizdom said...

Aw, shucks, Amy. *blush*

Mrs4444 said...

How about, "You are smart"?

Your parents are cute (as as the kids, of course :) It's nice that they gave each other to play with, when Teagan's not in school, of course.

Way to go on the cholesterol! I had a blood test yesterday and don't look forward to the results.
