Five For Friday {The Benadryl Version}

 Happy Friday... I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs for her Five For Friday.  I went to work this morning so excited that it was Friday {dressed in jeans and comfy flip flops}.  About an hour after the bell rang my allergies started going NUTS.  There was mascara everywhere, sneezing... I looked like a HOT MESS!  They called in a sub to finish out my day and I was so thankful.  I came home and popped 2 Benadryl.  I had already taken my normal allergy meds this morning so I was OUT... like incoherent for about 3 hours!  I feel much better right now, but I won't be venturing outside very much this weekend.  Spring time in south Georgia is so beautiful, but it's horrible for allergy sufferers!

1)  My funny picture from my Chuckle board on Pinterest.  If you know the popular Thrift Shop song out right now... then you will think this pic is hilarious! :)
2) Anyone else in love with all the boutiques selling clothes on Facebook?  There is this really young teacher across the hall that is kinda curvy like me and she always wears the cutest clothes.  She is unmarried and doesn't have any children... so maybe there's something to that... ANYWHO... she told me about Sass and Class this week and I ordered this strapless maxi dress to take to the beach next month! I ordered, paid, and it was shipped all in one day!  Wowza! 
3)  A pic of my desk... I go to Starbucks every morning with my cup...  I order a grande iced mocha... it stays cold for hours and hours.  It is so yummy and a HUGE part of my daily routine.  The washi tape was a gift from a friend.... speaking of coffee and washi tape... did you enter my giveaway?  It ends TONIGHT...  I'll be mailing 1 lucky winner a box of my favorite goodies!   
4)  The hubs went out of town this week for a few days.  I'm gonna be honest... it was kinda nice to have the bed all to myself, go to bed early...  I told myself that I was going to get a bunch of house stuff done, TpT stuff done, etc... .but the truth is I went to bed early both nights... and this was my dinner one night! :)  {Disclaimer: I did make a real dinner for the kiddos and I had dinner after they went to bed}
5)  I did finish one project from my TpT works in progress folder {yay!}  This is a companion for Revolutionary War on Wednesday (one of the Magic Tree House books).  It has comprehension questions {with answer key for easy checking}, graphic organizers, and posters to display in the classroom of book characters!  I have several of my firsties who are reading though my set now... and even my own personal firstie has gotten hooked!  Do your students like these books, too? 

I hope that you will all have a great weekend and that it will go by SLOWLY!  We have 20 more days of school until school is out...  That's only 160 hours, y'all... if I were counting {ahem}!  Remember to enter the giveaway before it ends @ midnight!!!  Talk to you soon!
