{oh hey, friday | i've got some things to discuss}

I've got some things to discuss this week.
Some more important than others.

Before I get started though…
it's time to talk link up.

Go ahead and write up a post about five things, paste the html of the button below on your post, and link up at the bottom.

Now onward we go.

1. | fitbit
Who has a fitbit?
No, I seriously want to know.
I want to be your fitbit friend, like yesterday.

Let me explain.
You see, I was gifted a fitbit by some pretty amazing friends.
Out of the blue. Showed up in a pretty bag at Beckam's birthday party.
It was like the nicest thing ever.
And I freaking love it.
I am obsessed with checking how much I move in a day.
I am at a 10,000 step a day goal.
This is usually not a problem.
What is super fun though is to start up some competitions with friends.
The other night Karli was kicking my tail on steps…
I decided that instead of just going the 350 more to get to 10,000 I was going to hop on the elliptical and actually beat her. Boom.
I need this kind of motivation in my life to keep me working out… because Oreos are my friend.
I can't say that I will do that every night, but it is fun to have a little competition going on.

SO, if you have a fitbit, let's be friends!
Email me here and I'll add you.

2. | strawberry jam
We have an abundance of strawberries flying out of garden.
I'm talking bowls full a day.
So much so, in fact, that we weren't eating them fast enough.
This is abnormal, fyi.
SO…
I decided to whip up my first ever batch of strawberry jam.
It's delicious.

3. | killdeer
Does anyone here know what killdeer are?
I didn't before I moved to Idaho.
Let me inform you.
They are little birds.
And they lay their eggs on the ground. In a bunch of rocks.
I find it dumb personally.

The boys always find it fun to find their nests, however.
You know you are close when the momma bird starts chirping loudly and acting like she has a broken wing.

We've been walking daily {gotta get those steps in!} and we recently found a nest.
The boys love checking in on it daily.
It started with four eggs.
The next day two had hatched - i didn't have my phone to snap a pic though.
And yesterday the two were already off and walking, with another new one hatched.
I bet the next time we walk by, they will all be off galavanting around, just like little teenagers.

Just some fun farm sightings.

4. | shenanigans
I smell trouble.

Karli brought her gals over, and these two were up to no good yesterday.
Holding hands, patting heads, sharing watermelon, spraying water, eating strawberries out of the patch.
I'll be keeping a close eye on them for the next 16 years.

5. | shish-kabobs
With the weather being stellar lately, we've decided to start grilling.
The boys love playing with their food…
and helping in the kitchen.
Shish-kabobs are the perfect food.
Especially when Zaza can help!

6. | giveaway - because I can

  5. Any tips on growing strawberries? Only two of my plants have survived so far but I hope to have enough to make jam someday!

  8. Awesome looking strawberries, will be ready to pick here soon. Did you make freezer jam or another type? That's what I make, hopefully enough jars to last us through the winter!
