5 Fact Friday

 

So I came across this adorable blog and this neat blog hop awhile back. Every Friday, I read her 5 Facts about her or her life. Every Friday, I say "Oh how neat I want to join". Every Friday, I think I don't have time right now (Friday is errand running day) or I don't have any real great pictures to post. So every Friday I say "Next Friday".

Well here I am! Again. No pictures and really no time but what the hay!

Since I am new to this group of people I figured I would shout out a few things that most of you regulars (like 3 including my mom and aunt) already know. ;)

1. When I was a teenager I wanted to be an accountant. I was going to go to college at Ohio State because I didn't want to move too far away. Then I was going to move to New York. Not sure the logic on that.

My senior year of high school, I fell in love and got married. 4 kids later, I stay at home with my kids and I homeschool. Do you have any idea what my 17 year old self would be saying to that!? God is Good.

2. I love Dr. Pepper and cowboy boots, 80's music and cute clothes, Spring and Fall.

3. I adore taking pictures. Of everything. All the time. Especially of my kids. Just ask them. At times I will just say their name and they turn and smile. Its kind of funny. Especially if I don't even have my camera in my hand. HA!

4. I love God. Why did I wait till #4 to tell you that. Maybe I didn't want to scare you away.

Really though, I do and the older I get the more I understand how much I need Him to run my life. I'm pretty good at messing things up on my own.

5. I want to buy a farm. We are new to this kind of life style but my husband and I love it! We do not have a farm right now. The closest thing we have is a garden and chickens. We are getting closer though and it makes me super giddy.

I adore learning and teaching my kids to become self sufficient. In the last few years, I have learned how to can (peaches, jam, grape juice, apple sauce....all kids of yummy, fattening things), butcher a chicken and cook completely from scratch!

So there you have it! 5 facts about me. No pictures and no profound thoughts. Just me as I'm running late getting out the door. Welcome to my world.

Hi Miranda - fun 5 facts! You're lucky your kids turn and smile, mine just groan about the pictures! We joke about having chickens but don't think we can where we live. Visiting from 5 Facts Friday.

I enjoyed your five facts, I could have written most of them myself.   You have a lovely blog...I believe I'm your newest follower.   It's always nice to run into another homeschool mom.   I had to retire hs recently when my youngest graduated...otherwise we went all the way through.   Good stuff...great memories...I'd never change it!

I'd like to have a farm, myself, but I think I'd regret it after awhile, as I approach retirement age...

Very interesting facts about you Miranda. An accountant huh? I never would have guessed that. 

Good luck on your dream of a farm. It's a great life -- especially for kids. :) Thanks for visiting today.
