Random 5 on Friday ~ July 25th

The Pebble Pond

1. I went this week to get my bridesmaids dress. Shoot me now. Just kidding. It's not THAT bad. Did I mention that the other bridesmaids are 21? I did. I know. On to better news, my workouts are going awesome! I have lost 3 pound this week! I finally am off that plateau I was on. Thank goodness because I was starting to get discouraged.

2. I know I will be asked...Here is what I have been doing.
~ I have been eating healthy. Not always. I did have a Klondike bar the other night.
~ Taking Creatine. To help me build muscle faster. I want this flab on my arms GONE by December 6th.
~ Protein shakes. Once a day usually.
~ Weight training. I have a Total Gym and 10 pound weights. Gotta use what you have!
~ Running. Only a mile or two a day.

3. Our mower broke. Half way through the mowing. Blah.

4. I dyed my hair dark brown like I do every few months. My natural brown is a really ugly, dull brown. Anway, it was WAY TOO dark. So I put medium brown on it. Nothing. I have dyed my hair since I was in my teens and I have never had this problem. So I used some Sun In to try and lighten it up just a bit. I sprayed it on a brush and just ran the brush through my hair. Trying to make it look natural. Nothing crazy. Ha. Right now, my hair is approximately 4 different shades of brown.

It's ok...you can laugh.

5. I have a fun photography project coming up soon. It's a secret so I can't tell you yet but trust me when I say....I'm excited!!! :)

Random 5 on Friday ~ July 18th

The Pebble Pond


1. I am really slacking on this blogging thing. It isn't because I don't have anything to write about. I just am just in a rut. Kind of feel like no one reads it anyway or cares. I know..pitiful, huh!?

Note to self ~ Must do better!

2. My garden is doing amazing this year! I didn't kill anything! How's that for awesome!?

3. We still can not find a house. I am so upset about it. We need to move. We need vehicles but we are trying to hold off until we buy a house first. Babies can't happen until we buy a house. I NEED a house! Is it too much to ask for a decent price, in the country, a little bit of land and neighbors not on top of us. I mean really????

4. I freaked out a little about Alyssa starting high school. I was having a complete melt down. I am better now. I am still sad she is that old already but as far as the teaching goes I am ready! I think.

5. Did I ever post any pictures of my sweet nephew? I can't remember. He is 2 weeks already. I just want to kiss him and smell him! Germany is so far away. For now, I love me some Skype and Facebook!

Random 5 on Friday ~ July 11th

The Pebble Pond

1. School planning. That has been my life for the last few days.

2. My garden is full of weeds. Would you like to come and help me pull them? I would love the company.

3. I am in awe of how cool the nights are right now. I actually have a sore throat from having our fan on. Weird. Usually it is so hot at night I can't sleep.

4. Brian got 3 days off last week and a day and half this week because a machine at work broke down. It has been nice having him home. Not so nice on the pocket book.

5. I used to love to be tickled. Brian used to hold me down and tickle me until I cried. I now hate it. Hate it, hate it, hate it! Isn't it funny how we change? Brian hasn't caught on to that fact yet.

4th of July Party!

We had a fun weekend.

Brian ended up getting 4 days off for the 4th. It was so awesome. I had to take the opportunity to throw a fun party.

We made candy dots the night before but that was about all the prep work we did. Everything else was made the next day. I'm such a procrastinator.





Before the actual party I had to snap some family pictures.









(My favorite! I wish a Brian and I were on were switched with Morgan and Alyssa but I'm not complaining!)

Of course, there was lots of food!

The menu ~
BBQ Ribs
Cubed potatoes
Macaroni Salad
Cupcakes
Strawberry Cream Pie
Chips & Dip
Homemade Lemonade
Pretzel bite things I found on Pinterest











We are dessert first. I'm cool like that. ;)


We even made decorations! They were a lot of fun to make and easy too.




We played 2 games.

Balloon Pinatas! I put some candy in 4 balloons. We tried rocks but that didn't work so well. Although Alyssa did get hers with the rock. Then we switched to a homemade dart. It was made with a straw and pins.














Then we had a scavenger hunt. I found clues online. The last clue led to sparklers, smoke bombs and other money wasters.


















The neighbors even let off fireworks for us to enjoy right from the front yard! I didn't get any good pictures of that.

Around 11, I feel into bed very happy but completely exhausted!
