Random 5 on Friday ~ February 28th

The Pebble Pond

1. My sweet Taylor turns 16 in a little over 2 weeks! I am trying to make this birthday so very special for her. As many of you know, this will not be a typical monumental birthday for her. So I have been racking my brain trying to think of ways to make this birthday extra special...."Taylor Style".

We are going to have a BIG surprise party for her but there is more! Will you help make her day extra special? I would love it if you would. I announced on Facebook the other day my plan to get as many people as I can to send Taylor a birthday card! The response was amazing! If you would like to send her a card too just leave your email in the comments and I will email you our address. :)

2. I am trying to eat healthy. I don't like it. The end.

3. I got my new Project Life album in the mail today! LOVE! I went with the "Heritage" edition for this year. I love the look and feel of it. It fits me right now. I am a few months behind but playing catch up is fun! Do you use Project Life? I am seriously in love.

4. I was gushed over about my "Ohio Accent" from a Canadian lady on the phone. Totally. Made. My. Day.

5. I have an abundance of homeschool curriculum that I do NOT use. I keep telling myself to sell it. Why do I hold on to that stuff like it is gold? I really have no idea. Am I the only one that does this?

Random 5 ~ February 21st

The Pebble Pond


1. I did it!


I must admit I am pretty proud of myself. It hurt like the dickens but I only winced a few times. I have gotten some criticism but I really love it. I have had quite a few people ask me why I got it. Well it has meaning for me.

You see, Lilies grow wild. They are beautiful and not contained. But they can be. They grow just as beautiful in a garden. First, I have always had a bit of a wild side. A little bit of danger has always been a bit exhilaration to me. I love with all my heart and I am very passionate about everything I do. I don't fit into any personality box or any box actually. I am just....me. Second, grown in a garden they are contained but lovely. God roped me in, planted me in a garden. I am still free to be me but a bit more contained. Directed by God instead of myself. (Never said perfect but definitely a work in progress!) Third, I love flowers. I love to garden. I love nature. Last but definitely not least, on summer days the kids and I love to drive old country roads doing "photo runs", having picnics and picking wildflowers. Usually Wild Lilies. They grow crazy insane out here!

So yes, for the rest of my life I will see a Lily on my foot and the memories and reminder of who I am will be exhilarating!

2. My yard looks unfamiliar to me. It is NOT covered in snow and I am loving it! There is always sun today!

3. I bought another Math Curriculum yesterday. Can you say addiction?

4. I need a new project. Any ideas?

5. Brian gave me a wonderful Valentines Day. He bought me flowers, a picture, a huge heart filled with chocolate and then took Monday off for me to go get my hair done. He even did school with the kids. Love him to the moon and back!

Random 5 on Friday ~ February 14th

Happy Valentine's Day! 


The Pebble Pond

1. I got my hair trimmed and added long layers this week. I am REALLY itching to add highlights but I don't want to spend the money. Such predicaments, ya know?

2. School was non existent this week. Unless you count Wii tournaments, cuddling and cleaning. I am sure we can fit that in a subject somewhere, right?

3. I am ready to plant my garden. Depending on when we buy a house I might not be able to plant one at all! Can you imagine!? I seriously don't know what I will do. Going all summer without seeing my garden grow will be torture. I think I will resort to pots if it comes down to it.

4. We are having a Valentines Day party on Sunday. The whole family is excited. Tomorrow we are making robot valentine "holders". They are not boxes so...."holders" it is. Today we are going shopping for our menu. Its going to be fun!

5. At 4:30 this afternoon this Bible-Believing, Baptist Church attending, Homeschooling momma is getting a TATTOO. Yep, you heard me right. 

It is something I have wanted to do since I was 16. A few years later, I got married, had babies and built a life. Which is definitely the better route! When I hit about 30, I was really wanting to get it done but I was afraid of what people would think. I am slowly overcoming that. Other than not really wanting to spend the money on it, I am over the top excited! Tremendously nervous though. Its gonna hurt!

I hope you will still love me. :)

Random 5 ~ February 7th

The Pebble Pond

1. On Saturday, I went with my mom, stepmom and little sister to go shopping for a WEDDING DRESS!! We found it at the first store we went to. It is perfect. Kassy is going to be such a beautiful bride! I only cried once the whole shopping trip.

2. I have been thinking about selling candles again. I have had quite a few requests for them lately. I love making them. It just takes a lot of time. We shall see.

3. Its been kind of a slow week. All week I have felt like I was coming down with something. I just feel tired and blah. Not fun.

4. Brian took 2 days of vacation this week. Although I felt "blah" it was still so nice to have him here. We just kind of hung out, played video games and napped. Ok, I napped. ;)

5. We got our tax refund back today! Yee-Haw! Buying a house is getting closer and closer. I'm so excited!
