Random 5 on Friday ~ April 5th

Hello! Welcome to another week of Random 5. So this week has really flown by! How about for you? A slow week or a quick one?

It took us a little while to recuperate from a busy weekend. Brian only worked 3 days last week so between him being home and Easter, it took a day or two to fall back into our routine.

I hope everyone had a great week. Here is my Random 5 for this week.

1. I got a craving for salsa this week. So what did I do? Went to the store to buy what I needed to make it! If you have never had homemade salsa, you are missing out. You will NEVER buy store bought stuff again. I find that true about a lot of things. Except peanut butter. I tried to make it homemade but I'm not sure that anything can stand against creamy Jif peanut butter.

2. I realized today that I did not do Carter and Morgans 10th birthday pictures or Alyssa's 13th! Taylor's birthday was March 18th so now I have all 4 kids behind on pictures. Good thing it is getting nice out because it looks like a photo shoot is in our near future.

3. We are on a Lord of the Rings kick! I attempted to watch the first one years ago but I thought it was stupid. Now...I am HOOKED!

4. After much prayer and a lot of discussion, Brian and I decided not to move....just yet. We found the perfect house but we decided it would be better for our family to wait about 10 months. We have some things that need to be taken care of to be "comfortable" and if we move it will set us back some. Not a lot but enough. Brian has been listening to Dave Ramsey on his MP3 player at work so I know good ol' Dave is pushing him in the right direction. It was how I was feeling in my heart too so its pretty awesome to see God working.

5. Right at this moment, I am wearing mismatching socks. One purple toe. One green toe. Come to think of it, I do not even think these are my socks. ;)

Maybe I should be doing laundry instead of writing a blog post. Nah...priorities, ya know!? Hehe...just teasing.

Please consider linking up! I would love to read your Random 5.
The rules? They are simple.

Can you share the salsa recipe? I have one that I love for something that's more like pico, but my family prefers a smoother salsa.

I'm happy to be a part of this week's Random 5 gathering. Thanks for hosting!

Oh my goodness, you made me laugh with your little confession about the socks, especially the part about them not even being yours. I love Lord of the Rings. Wasn't too fond of it the first time I saw it at a friend's house, but when The Two Towers came out I was hooked. I saw Return of the King in the theater twice I believe. We have all of the extended editions. Have you seen those? There is so much more. Now if I could get through the book.
Thanks for the linky!

Thank you for hosting this meme. I just linked up my post I am a fellow crew member visiting and now following your blog. Stop by to say hello if you get a chance. I would love to hear from you. We love making homemade salsa too. In fact, I believe we'll be making some next week. I would love to try a new recipe if you'll be posting it in on your blog. Let me know if you do. I am so behind on taking birthday and Christmas photos too. I can't remember the last time I took my daughter for a real photo shoot. I laughed when I read your sock comment. So real - I love it! I have considered Dave Ramsey's courses for Alyssa, but maybe I should take another look at it for us. We need to get our finances more organized and get rid of some debt. We are in the process of building our house. We are packing now and will be moving a lot next month. Yikes! I am starting to stress a bit. Have a wonderful weekend!

God bless,

I love homemade salsa and Lord of the Rings!! My sweet hubby first read the book like 40+ years ago, LOL. Thanks so much for joining in at Lets Get Social Sunday!!

What a fun post! I haven't done anything like this in a while. I used to do a Thursday 13 but that was so long ago.

Ashley said...

Arrrgggg......I still cannot stand mismatched socks (my girls have been wearing them since January)! lol I am with you on the peanut butter, but I have not tried making my own either. As far as The Lord of the Rings, I like the books, but basically slept through the movies. Why watch a movie when the book is better and you can read it in the same amount of time? At least that was my conclusion after 2 attempts to watch The Hobbit this past weekend. I look forward to reading more!
