Random 5 on Friday ~ May 23rd

The Pebble Pond

1. I had to make some changes around here. I sat down and made a list of ALL my commitments. Then I started crossing things off. When I was down for my leg it really put a damper on things. I got behind on everything. I am pretty much caught up but it was a rough year anyway. We are going to have to school through the summer to get caught up and I just really had to reevaluate everything I was doing.

One of those things I had to stop was Beauty Captured. It makes me so sad. I was so close to a year and I made some really good friends that linked up with me. Wendy has graciously decided to taking over for me. So if you are interested be sure to jump over to her blog and check it out.

I also stopped doing the 100 Happy Days. I know, I know...how hard is it to take a picture. Well it wasn't that it was hard but once I got a bit behind, I was always scrabbling to get caught up and it just made me grumpy.

I honestly feel better all ready. I feel free to just take pictures when I want and not have to stress over it. I feel free to relax a bit. Does that make sense?

2. Searching for a house is trying.

3. Have you every heard of Geocaching? You have to check it out. The kids and I have been having fun with it. We even have a cool name....HalfDozen. Hehe...I love it. You can check out the website but basically all over the country there are these little boxes that are hidden. Inside the boxes are logs to sign and sometimes little trinkets that you can take or leave one yourself. I downloaded the app and you can look at the map of any area. Follow the clues and find the box. Its like a big scavenger hunt! Fun!

4. I have been in such a good mood lately.

5. I bought 3 new bottle of nail polish (they were on clearance) and a new pair of sunglasses today. Aren't they cute? :)

Sometimes, something just has to give, and you can't be the something all the time. The whole "have to find something to take a picture of" thing vs "oh, cute shot" is keeping me from it as well. I hope things remain calmer.

Good luck house shopping. We are actually moving next week, and throughout June. I've always wanted to simplify and downsize and now I'm in a position where I have to- we are moving to a little less than half of our current square footage! Yikes! We LOVE geocaching, except my youngest who always seems to be wearing shorts when we have to trek through the woods and gets his legs scratched. And your sunglasses are cute :) Have a great weekend.

Take care of YOU! And thanks for allowing me the honor and privilege of continuing the Beauty Captured for you. <3 I hope you'll be able to restart in a few months.
