Random 5 on Friday {April 12th}

1. At first glance, black rice looks a bit like caviar.

2. I need a new crochet or knitting pattern . . . now. I have some sock yarn and lots of other yarns in my stash, but I don't have anything that I'm in the middle of doing right now. My hands are getting restless, especially during read-aloud time.

3. My SuperMommy feat for this week was repurposing one of Lauren's face masks into a hairband to keep her hair out of the way when she was at the doctor the other day. It wasn't pretty, but it worked.

4. I went to a specialty running shoe store this afternoon and the street in front of it was closed due to a horrible motorcycle accident. I had to park about a block away, but I decided it would have been really lame to not buy running shoes because I couldn't find a parking spot close enough.

5. Lauren finished a Princess lapbook that she's really proud of, and I'm giving away a copy, too.

  1. The comment about not buying running shoes because of having to walk to the store made me giggle.

    She did a great job on the lapbook!

  2. I have never eaten black rice...

  3. Repeat Crafter Me has some of the most adorable and fun free patterns.

  4. I don't think I can ever look at black rice the same way again:)

  5. So did you find any cute running shoes?

  6. I would love to see a picture of that hairband. Sounds interesting.
