It's another fragalicious Friday. Little bits and bobs, to borrow a phrase from the Brits in honor of the royal wedding, floating around in my brain.

Mommy's Idea

Bit: I hosting a Vera Bradley tote bag giveaway. If you're a Vera fan or you just want a great bag to carry library books in, be sure to check it out. The winner will be announced on Monday.

Bob: Coverage of the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton begins in just 3 hours. Maybe I should just stay up? Will you watch?

Bit: Today was the last Weight Watcher meeting in this at-work series. I ended on a good note, losing 2 pounds since last week. I'm going to try to keep the momentum going. Especially after reading this inspiring guest post from Annie Weighs.

Bob: Speaking of momentum, Charlie's class is having it's roller coaster exhibition in the morning. I got a sneak peek of several of the coasters -- lots of very fun ideas!

Bit: Mike was uploading some videos for me tonight and was a bit frustrated because I had shot some of it sideways. He said "You are not allowed to be this technologically impaired and still be married to me." I wonder if that was an offer or an ultimatum?

Bob: My blog makeover is well underway. I can't wait to get it uploaded. It's a great, fresh new look!

Bit: Even more exciting than a blog makeover, Mike has a job interview next week. Prayers appreciated.

Bob: Annie leaves on her 8th grade class trip on Monday. I think I might be a little verklempt sending her off and only partially because she'll be leaving me surrounded by testosterone for 5 days. Prayers appreciated for this, too.

That's all the bits and bobs I've got this week. For more fragalicious Friday fun, be sure to visit Mrs. 4444s Friday Fragments post.

I am not at all interested in that wedding since I don't know those people. Good job on losing 2 pounds last week--hope you can keep it going! That's great your husband has a job interview coming up--hope he gets the job. Is it in IT by any chance?

Stopping by from FF. Have a great weekend!

Not watching the wedding, I'm going through my reader.

Prayers offered for Mike's interview.

Five days? Where are the eighth graders going? (Did I miss that? I'm also wrestling with a sinus headache...)

Congrats on the weight loss!

I feel like I'm the only one who isn't at all interested in the wedding. Does that make me a bad person?

Kara @ His, Hers and Ours said...

Whoohoo on the weight loss! Congrats!!

And yes, I watched the wedding...I also remember Charles marrying Diana, so I felt obligated. lol I wasn't disappointed.

Yay for a new blog makeover! I have one in the works too, but still have to get some stuff worked out on it. Maybe now that school is over I'll have some time. :)

Came over from FF!

For the record, I am commenting in great pain from a sinus infection and root canal issue, so thanks for the distraction, and please excuse any stupid stuff I write. Thanks.

Can't wait to see the reveal!

Good luck with all the testosterone. I'm sure you miss her already!

I skipped the wedding but caught the recaps, which I enjoyed very much.

Congrats on the weight loss, and good luck on the job prospect!!
