Random 5 on Friday ~ June 28th

I'm sorry I am a day late. My little sister is in Germany having a baby as I type!! I am a very anxious and nervous aunt!


The Pebble Pond

1. How can I not talk more about being an aunt!? My little sister is 13 years younger than me. I actually have twin sisters that are 13 years younger than me. Kassy, is getting married in December. Which reminds me I need to workout today. The bridesmaids dress might look a bit more flattering if I tone up a bit. Anyway, my other sister, Krissie, is in labor RIGHT NOW! In Germany. 12 hours by plane away. Help me now.

2. I got an iPhone! I'm kind of excited about it. We use our cell phones as our only phone. I have to have it because we go to a lot of appointments out of town. Just me and the kids. Anyway, I have always been an Android girl. I am liking the iPhone. Its an older one...4s and it was used but I love it all the same because it takes wonderful pictures.

3. Did I mention my sister is in labor right now. And I'm not there. I'm half way around the world. Sitting not so patiently. all. day. long. Yeah. Ok. New topic. I am making homemade pizza for dinner. We have pizza night every weekend. I love the tradition!

4. I have a huge pumpkin patch growing! Eek! I am excited about that.

5. I never knew trying to find a house would be so difficult. I want land. A decent amount but we are trying to use a USDA loan with no money down. Unfortunately, I want land more than a spectacular house. That I can do myself but with a USDA loan the house has to met a bunch of standards. Most of the houses that meet these standards do not have any land at all. Such a bummer. If anyone has any info that might help me out in this area, I would love to hear ALL ABOUT IT! For now, we look and look some more.

Ms.Taylor got a makeover!

For Taylor's birthday, a friend of ours paid for Taylor to get a makeover. What girl wouldn't love that?! Such a perfect present for a special 16 year old.

Our schedules had a hard time matching up but we finally made it work.

Here is before:


Taylor did so good holding her head up. She was nervous at first because she wasn't sure how it all would work. She had the opportunity to get her eye brows done but she decided "No way" after she saw how it worked. Hehe....






And after!!

Seriously. Could she be any more beautiful!?

Random 5 on Friday ~ June 20th

The Pebble Pond

1. Brian has been busy, busy, busy tilling all my gardens for me. Yes, gardens.

2. I am really excited to plant a sunflower circle for the kids! I saw it on Pinterest. I can imagine all of us sitting in the circle reading but the reality is we will probably be swatting bees the whole time. We shall see. No matter what it will LOOK neat!

3. I am completely caught up on my laundry. This is a HUGE thing around here.

4. My little sister is due in ONE week! EEK. I am so excited. Jaxon Vincent will be joining us very soon. I wish I could hop on a plane and fly to Germany. I may be tempted to bring him home with me if I do that. :)

5. The kids and I are reading Elijah of Buxton by Christopher Paul Curtis. It is a wonderful book. It is about a little boy that lives in a settlement of escaped slaves. I have the accent down to a T and I find myself still talking like that when I am done reading. It is very common to hear me say "Git yer shoes on, its time ta go."

Random 5 on Friday ~ June 13th

The Pebble Pond

1. Tomorrow we are going to a carnival. How fun! The best part? It is free! The worst part? Taylor has no desire to go. AT.ALL. I'll give details soon.

2. The moon is beyond beautiful tonight. Yes, its night. Yes, I am really late posting this.

3. I have been a busy bee the last few days. So far I have planted cucumbers, tomatoes, onions, peppers, spinach, lettuce and carrots. This year I am determined not to kill a single thing.

4. We are van shopping. I have mixed emotions about it. I really want a new van but I really don't want a payment. Unfortunately, we don't have a choice. I can't believe ours is even running at this point.

5. My toenails are an ugly shade of blue/gray right now. I really should do something about that.
