Fragments: Meet Me

So, I know it's not Friday. But, I'm addicted to doing Friday Fragments. But, tomorrow is the big dance-off: So, I'm doing mine today. Reminder: I have the blog police in my back pocket so it's okay.


Click HERE if you need the rules.

Those of you who are participating, please schedule your posts for 9AM EST and then shoot me an email (or Supah- all dance links will be on both of our blogs) to let me know that it will be up and we'll get you linked!

Don't forget to grab a button for your post!


The earlier you tell me that you are playing, the happier I will be because I'm leaving for Bloggy Bootcamp tomorrow! You can even tell me today, and I'll get yours right at 9am. Please!!!!

There are a few of you who have followed recently that I can't find your blogs! So, if I haven't returned the follow, it's because I can't find you. Please leave me your blog addy. THANKS! :)
I've seen a bunch of getting-to-know-you(would that be getting-to-know-ME in this case?) posts around, of some of the other ladies heading to bloggy bootcamp this weekend. And I thought I'd join in.  But, in my own fragmented way.


So, me...well, I'm the type of girl who can tell pour her heart out to you about a tough time in her marriage, call someone out for being a motherbitch, discuss age-appropriateness of a movie like a responsible parent, post a video where I had to shove as many marshmellows in my mouth as I could to try to win a contest, and review a sex toy. All in the same week. Oh, and I'm dancing for you tomorrow.


If you don't know what a motherbitch is, see the button in the sidebar. Now you know.

I have all boys. Do not pity me or ask if we are going to try for a princess. We're not.


I'm still sort of wishing that there was an official uniform for bootcamp- and that it was yoga pants and a comfy shirt. 


I'll be in jeans and a green shirt that has bright pink lettering on it. With a saying that you should completely take as a joke and NOT roll your eyes at me for.

I joked about taking my son's kindergarten orientation bag with me, since I didn't have any other bag that I could carry around with me, other than diaper bags. It says, "I'm a big kid now."

Thankfully, The Purse Blogger decided to take pity on me and sent me this fabulous bag to use:

So when you see that adorable bag, you'll know it's me!

You should go visit her and see what other fabulous purses she has to offer.
Really, you should follow her.
I'll be hosting a giveaway for her here soon and I'll give you an extra entry if you go follow her now instead of waiting for the giveway.

Can you tell I distract easily?


I get to meet my bloggysister, The Mommyologist, this weekend. I can't wait. I think we're going to discover that we're really twins, separated at birth


I bet she doesn't have a huge zit on her chin, though. My 3 year-old keeps asking me, "You has a red boo-boo, Mommy? I kiss it." Which is sweet, but like I want any more attention drawn to it.


You're going to look for that now, aren't you?

I think that's good enough for now. I kind of suck at describing myself. Anyone want to help me out here?

Can't wait to meet those of you who will be at bootcamp this weekend.


Those of you who won't be there....waaaaaaaaaaahhhhhh!
I want to meet you, too. :(


Don't forget about the dance-off on Friday.
Or at least be sure to come back and watch.
And then you'll wish you had played, too.

I can't freakin' believe I get to meet you tomorrow!!

And I have a huge zit on my eyebrow and had to cancel my wax appointment, so I'm hoping no one notices.

And my voice is back a little bit but it's still pretty hoarse. I will DIE if I can't talk!!

Hope they don't drill you too hard at blogger bootcamp...although with a zit......

No really have fun while the rest of us are here getting picked on and ridiculed for dancing our bloggies off.

It does sound like fun to meet up with online friends. I have a few I have known for a few years and would love to meet.

Describe you?


Shell is a beautiful (don't roll your eyes at me!) person - both inside and out.

She has gorgeous - to die for - long, blonde hair. She has a great body (although she won't agree with that!) Perfectly proportioned for her - what? 5'4" height? (a guess on that one!)

She has a wonderful, inviting smile and beautiful eyes when she does!

Only her personality (which you have gotten to know a small percentage of here) and faith exceed her outer beauty!

(You would think I was her hubby instead of her bff!)

Omg. I just watched all the dance videos from last time, yours included, and I so wish I could play along! We don't have that game though, and I'm pretty sure it's too late for me to buy it and practice:( Boo. I would totally rock that contest!

Have fun at Boot Camp, I'm jealous!

P.S. What does the shirt say?

Oooh...hubby is going to be so mad that I have found a new place to get purses! LOL Did you know I have a {not so} mild purse addiction? I got rid of an unmentionable amount a few months ago & still have around 15 left. And now I think I need to go buy more :P

Oh how I wish I was going to bootcamp. But sadly not. I will be here getting ready for the art & book festival at little man's school next week. But hope you have fun! Can't wait to hear how it goes!

The purse is fabulous!

What is it with zits in adulthood anyway, I so thought it was just fun for teenagers! I swear by this stuff that philosophy makes though called hope in a bottle!

Love that you have all boys! Boys are great. I mean, I am sure girls are great too, but I wouldn't know and we aren't going to try for a princess either, even though I would have her in a pink tutu and converse everyday...but now I'm rambling in a comment.

Anyway, I wish I was going to Bloggy Boot Camp with everyone as well! Seems like all my Fav people are going to be there. I have to wait for the PHX!

Have fun!

You're gonna have so much fun...I'm envious! I may go to the one in SF but we'll see.

The purse is adorable...again, I'm envious.

I'll come back for the Dance off tomorrow...I won't be participating though. Until my ass doesn't jiggle more than my boobs when I dance, it won't be happening. But I'll enjoy watching everyone else's!

Hi! I'm a newbie to the Friday Fragments gang. Loving all the funny little stories!

I have no idea what the dance or the boot camp are and reading your post almost made me dizzy. Any chance you are a tad on the hyper side of life? LOL!

I've had a zit hanging out on my right cheek (face) for several days now. Must be an epidemic! :)

Shell, I have to tell you something. Now, you know I love you, so don't take this the wrong way, but... I get carsick when I come to your blog. There. I said it. (Don't laugh-I'm serious.) It's the two scrolling thingies--I have to read really, really fast so that I can scroll down past them. I know; it's weird. Anyway, that's why I don't stay long. Just thought you'd want to know.

Have fun at Bloggy Bootcamp!!!
