Oh Hey Friday!

Happy Friday!  I think it's been just over a week since I posted last, so today's post will be a lot of randomness that has been going on lately.  You've been warned ;)

ONE.  Most of my absence lately is because both our desktop and laptop computers decided to die on us at the same time!  Our desktop has been a POS since about a month after we bought it (and of course the return policy was 14 days or something).  We've been dealing with it for the past year, but now we can't even get it to turn on.  So that's done.  I've had my laptop for YEARS and I love it, but it's running really slow and I've gotten the "blue screen of death" twice in the past week, so I know it's probably on it's last leg.  We ended up purchasing a new laptop, so I'm getting that up and running so that I can get back on track with my posts.

A clean house is a sign of a broken computer.. ecard jokes humor funny hilarious LOL haha hahaha
TWO.  The joys of being a homeowner.
Exhibit 1: A bee/wasp (not sure which it is) nest on each of the dormers of our house.

Exhibit 2: Dealing with a groundhog that has dug four holes under our shed and one under our fence in the backyard.  But we caught him and relocated him to a nice wooded area where he will be happy.  And so will we.

THREE.  You may have seen this on Instagram, but I was cleaning out my linen closet last week and found this cute little jar full of bath salts.  I haven't taken a bath in our since we bought it two years ago, so I knew I wouldn't use the bath salts, but the jar was just too cute to throw away.  So I dumped out the bath salts and used it for my bobby pins.  I'm pretty proud of myself for thinking of an alternative use for something...I'm usually lacking that type of creative thinking.

FOUR.  I recently received this Skintimate Mandarin Burst Moisturizing Shave Gel to try from CrowdTap.  I actually like foam over gel, but this gel smells really good and my legs don't feel dry after shaving, so I'm really liking it so far!

FIVE.  I'm running the Susan G. Komen Race for a Cure 5k tomorrow morning.  My goal is run the whole thing, I'm not worried about time for this one.  Wish me luck! 

What are you up to this weekend?  Whatever you are doing, I hope you enjoy your weekend!

Linking up today with September Farm and The Farmer's Wife for oh hey Friday!

And Momfessionals for Friday Favorites!


  1. #1 cracks me up -my house is in need of a broke iPhone, iPad, laptop, etc :) Have a great weekend!!

  2. Ugh, we had a bee hive once, too! What are you going to do with them??

    1. I've heard there are sprays we can buy that will shoot long distances (so we don't have to climb on the roof when we spray them), so that's on the agenda for this weekend. Then hopefully it will get the bees all out of there so we can take the hives down without getting stung. How did you get rid of yours?

  3. Good luck with your race! That jar you reused is really cute! I wouldn't have wanted to throw it away either :) I totally agree with #1. Ever since my laptop broke and I've been too cheap to buy a new one, I don't ever get on the computer. Hence the lack of blogging. Haha! :)
