Frags on Friday - Spaced Out!

Welcome to Friday Fragments #241, a weekly wind down sponsored by the magnanimous Mrs4444 (pronounced "MrsFours") of Half-Past Kissin' Time!  I love this segment of her blog as it gives one a chance to reflect, reject and renew oneself prior to the weekend!

I've had a "Space Mountain" of a week emotionally, but it's been good...great learning experience... humbled my ego somewhat, encouraged me to let go a little and trust the big guy a lot more with my silly little life!  "Oh, just surprise me, God!  I know it will be great!"

Spent last Sunday picking up the VW Bus, and praying that it wouldn't break down between Missouri and Illinois.  It ran out of gas...but it didn't break down!  What a lesson in trust.  Also got our taxes done, had lunch with my girls and was the recipient of not just one, but two, hugs from the #2 son, while #1 son was recuperating from his variety show the night before.  Next time, Boneman!  I need two hugs from you!

I was having coffee with some friends and watched one of them break a perfectly to-die-for cupcake in half, pulling the bottom half over the top so that it became a cupcake-sammich!  I began to hyperventilate and lose consciousness.  I was quickly brought back to reality when I began to gnaw on a carrot that I had been holding.  I enjoyed that cupcake vicariously through my friend, after repeating to myself...I don't like cupcakes...they are evil...they will cause me to lift off into outer space!  Somehow, the conversation changed from evil sugar to permanent make-up tips.  My other friend revealed her beauty secrets that she acquired while in one of our coastal, sunny states.  She is drop-dead gorgeous to begin with, but I was not aware that her brows were tattooed, her eyeliner was tattooed, and her lip color had been tattooed!  I sort of choked on my carrot thinking about the procedures, but then realized just how much money she has saved by "not" waxing, not buying and applying both eyeliner and lipstick.  She also described what she had done with her lashes, but I can't remember as my mind was totally mush from her description of the lipstick tattoo!

What? Too much info?  Sorry, I just wanted to share a little of my week.  Hope you've had a great one!

A very cool post! I just saw a VW Bus much like this made of Legos at the Lego store and it's like a vacationing trailer style in the inside you should check it out!

Ya lost me at the cupcake : )

I don't think I can do the tattoo face changes from decade to decade. Plus I love buying lipstick.

Have a great weekend!

Interesting week. I'm glad you got a visit with your kids.
The tattoo makeup sounds like a good idea but I don't think I'm brave enough to actually do it.

I have a few tattoos, and the one around my ankle hurt pretty badly when I got it. I'd love to have permanent eyeliner, but I can't imagine how painful that would be!

I'd be tempted to do the tattoo make-up. I can't seem to put on mascara or eye liner to beat the band ... I'm too blind and don't have a steady enough hand. And I've found that my eyebrows are disappearing. I just don't know that I would be brave enough to give it a go ... not to mention actually spend that money.

I am SUCH a procrastinator when it comes to bill paying that I have to try to self discipline by not allowing myself to do fun things like blogging til I get the HORROR over.

So glad the VW didn't break down!

I saw someone on some show do that cupcake sammich thing - too funny you saw someone do it in real life! :)

Really? Tattooed eyebrows, lips and eyeliner? Think of all the time she saves now - and it looks awesome! :)

High Five to you for he carrots! I'd have caved and gone for the cupcake!

I thought I'd heard every beauty trick but the tattoos are new to me. Not sure I'd have the nerve to do it but your friend looks beautiful.

Love the red VW :-)

I think the hairless eyebrow tatoo would be a little creepy close up, although you can't tell in the picture, but I think I could totally get down with the eyeliner/lipstick thing!

I have my eyeliner and lips tattooed but I wouldn't let her do my eyebrows.....and I would never do the lips again because the color doesn't stay. I am so happy I have the eyeliner....I love to swim and I love always having my eyeliner on, so it works out....I will have to say it hurts like crazy so anyone considering it needs to keep that in mind.
