Random 5 on Friday ~ February 27th

The Pebble Pond

1. If my washer stops working one more time...I might just pick it up and throw it out the window. It stopped working for over a week. Brian fixed it and it broke again. My luck has been pretty yucky lately. Can you tell? It has been working for 2 days. So I am like the crazy laundry lady.

2. The sun is shining! Hallelujah!

3. I bought Nerium. Have you ever heard of it? It is supposed to do wonders for wrinkles. We shall see. Maybe I will post a before and after. It might scare you though.

4. I got to watch my nephew over night! Oh. My. Goodness. It was amazing but I will admit I was a little nervous. Its been a long time since I had such a teeny tiny baby over night. You know I got pictures! He is so perfect.


5. Have you seen the show Parenthood? I know I am a bit behind because it has been popular for years but....thats what happens when you don't have cable or dish or any of this things that people use to watch TV. We have a laptop and a library. It works. Anyway, Parenthood.....it is such a good show! I am on Season two. My only problem is that I can sit and watch 5 episodes in a row easy. That makes for a late night. ;)

Join us! I'd love to hear from you. Have a great weekend!

1. It's -11 right now. This time last year it was 45. Ugh. I am not usually one to complain about the weather but....I'm complaining. The sun is shining. That is a huge plus!

2. I want a puppy.

3. Oh and a house. Have I already mentioned that? I keep telling myself that more houses will come up the market in the spring. Right now there is nothing. We looked at house a few days ago that had 5 acres. It was nice but just not right for us.

4. I bought myself tulips.










5. I am proud of myself for all the water I am drinking. I am kind of addicted to Dr. Pepper but I want to make it a habit to drink way more water than pop. And that is just what I have been doing. :)

1. My sweet nephew was born on Tuesday! Hunter Allen Frederick. He is so perfect. I've seen him every day since he has been born and to tell you the truth...I could get used to that! :)






2. Guess what? I got a CAMERA!! YAY! I got a Canon t5i. I love it.

3. I got both #1 and #2 on the same day. It was a good day.

4. I love the flexibility of homeschooling. The kids and I were able to stay at the hospital while we waiting for Hunter's big entrance. We have been able to help the beautiful family as much as possible. The kids have had big lessons this week. Not book lessons and sometimes those are the most important.

5. It is cold. Like really cold. I have errands to run and I have heard it is supposed to be -30 with the wind chill. Fun. I think we will stay IN the rest of the weekend. Which I am fine with that. Well....unless that baby is involved. I may have to sneak in a visit now that they are home. :)

Random 5 on Friday ~ February 6th

The Pebble Pond



1. We get our taxes back on Monday. Umm...I can not wait. Hopefully I will also have a new camera in my hands!! It's weird how empty my hands feel without one. I knew how much I loved taking pictures but I kind of didn't realize how much I would miss it once I didn't have one. I learned my lesson. BUCKLE bag!!

2. We are STILL searching for a house! I am beginning to feel like we will NEVER find one.

3. I'm still having trouble fighting this cold. It has been almost 2 weeks! I think the end might finally be in sight. I have been taking Natural Defense 3-4 times a day. That is when I started to see a difference. It has been years since I have had a cough like this. Yuck!

4. Alyssa has started driving. Ok well she only picked up her book to start practicing for her permit but it is just too close, people! I mean really. This is not supposed to be happening yet. Is it? I want a rewind button. I have been letting her practice. I am going to expect her to have A LOT of practice before I even come close to letting her behind the wheel around other crazy drivers.

5. Speaking of a rewind button. Taylor turns 17 next month. Excuse me while I cry. It is not helping my baby fever. Although I doubt anything ever will. We need #2 to happen really quickly so this baby thing can happen. Buy a house...then Brian will be up for another reversal surgery or adoption. Fingers are crossed.
