Five for Friday

Drumroll please. . .

Tomorrow I get to do the Alaska Women's Run, which is about the fight against breast cancer.  I've done this run (both in Minnesota & Alaska) for many years and always in honor of my Auntie Lynn who has beat the big C TWICE!

That's my husband being a kid. . . he looks like he's trapped!
This is the COOLEST seesaw I've ever seen!
We've been exploring playgrounds in our part of town this week and, thanks to a great website run by the city, we've found some gems!
I swear to Santa I'm here every other day because I LOVE working (creating really) in my yard and gardens!  Good thing they take PayPal!!
"Say hello to my little friends!"  I bought these babies a few weeks ago and LOVE them.  I really want a chop saw next but I think my husband will freak out if I come home with an electric saw :-0
But what should I name them?  Bert and Ernie. . .Thelma and Louise. . .
I think I'll buy 2 more power tools and name each of them after the Golden Girls, ha!
The weather was cloudy and sprinkly this week so as I worked on projects in the garage, the kids played as well and everyone was as happy as a clam!

Man I LOVE summer!


  1. Good luck with your race tomorrow. What an awesome way to pay tribute to your aunt's bravery! As for the power tools, what about Bonnie and Clyde since it sounds like you're being a bit of a rebel? (Or at least scaring the pants off of your husband!)

    1. Ha, that's great, Bonnie & Clyde it is! Thanks Tonya :-)

  2. Those playgrounds look like fun! Have a great weekend!

    1. Hi Amanda,

      Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have a great weekend too!


  3. My vote is for Thelma and Louise! I'm jealous of your summer. I have five more days!
