Random 5 on Friday

This is my first time participating in the Random 5 blog party....

Laura and I sat down and wrote the first 5 random things that came across our minds.....

kinda crazy and fun.....

1) The NHL players get to play in the winter Olympics this year. Laura thinks its great, but mom misses the days when pros stayed in the NHL and the amateurs played in the Olympics. Think Miracle on Ice in 1980. Speaking of Miracle on Ice....this is a cute video of a random 4 year old kid re-enacting Coach Herb Brooks speech to the team before they played the Russians. (We don't know him - found on youtube)

2) 92 degrees and a heat index over 100 is really hot if you are from New York!

3) Painting the basement is a lot of work....(especially when the heat index is over 100!) And if you paint the basement, you will get a lot of paint on yourself.... and having paint on yourself (in 90 degree weather) is SO not cool.

4) US Soccer is celebrating its Centennial Year this season! Go Women's National Team - one of the most underrated teams in sports!

5) Hummingbirds are really cute! But bees are not. And if you hang a feeder outside your will get both visiting it. Not so good if you are allergic to bee stings....
So that's all folks! A random sampling of our thoughts today!


  1. Great job on your first Random 5! I love these easy reads on blogs! And I agree that the women's soccer team is underrated, as is the US women's volleyball program! Stopping by from Coffee, Cobwebs, and Curriculum...have a great weekend!

    1. Yes, I agree - they are very fun to read! I often learn a lot of neat things by reading the random 5 posts. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Thanks for linking up! I'm glad you joined in. Hope to "see" you next week. Great list, by the way. :)


Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
