Random 5 on Friday ~ August 2nd

The Pebble Pond

1. We are starting back to school on August 19. My to-do list is a mile long and I want the whole list completed before we start school. I'm going to be busy.

2. The last 2 nights the kids and I have been busy baking (and freezing) banana and apple bread! Between that and the fall weather we are having, I am getting more and more excited for changing leaves, fall festivals and all those snuggles I get when reading in the evenings.

3. 8 weeks and 1 day until we are out of debt! That is our first step to starting our Huppstead! Brian and I are working as team. He is working a lot of hours and I am trying to pick up the slack around the house. We are both tired but enthusiastic!

4. I want a goat. To milk. Yes, I am serious. :)

5. I love that my kids just randomly comment on my blog.

Insta-Lately

Considering linking up?

Here are the rules. They are simple.
~ Link to your Random 5 on Friday post.
~ Add a link back to me somewhere in your post.
~ Please make sure to put the direct link to your blog post not just your blog. I like to read and comment on all of you but I can not always do it right away and I do not have time to look for it. Thanks!
~ Visit, Visit, Visit! Have fun encouraging each other. :)

I love your five. Especially 3, 4 and 5. Put smiles on my face.

Awesome about being debt free, will that include your home?
I had dreams of getting a milk goat or a jersey grass fed milk cow, but with my son's life-threatening dairy allergy, I have second thoughts. :-/ Now, I just dream of living in the country with at least 1 acre of land... having chickens and raising beef and possibly sheep, are still part of the dream though! ;) My husband wants to be a sheep farmer, or live in a high rise apartment.. lol, he is an all or nothing kind of guy. As it is, we live in a 1000sqft 3bdrm house on a small city lot.. with 6 kids.. :p at least the bvack yard is fended with a privacy fence! We've been here over two years now... before that, I always lived on 5+acres of land in the country, so it's been an adjustment for me.
Sorry, I wrote a book!
Sounds and looks like you are keeping productive!

Goats are fun! We love ours. They aren't milking at this time; we gave mama a break. Considering breeding her and her daughter this fall, though.

No, we just rent right now. That is the goal though! We are paying off some debt and getting ahead before we buy. :)

Clarissa said...

Very smart!
We rent with dreams/plans/goals to get ahead and own some kind too... someday!
