Five For Friday


Howdy, y'all!  Omigosh... it's finally Friday!  I am seriously counting down the days now... only 25 days of school left... that's only 200 hours {jazz hands!}.  Linking up with Doodle Bugs for her linky today...  without further ado...

1)  My all-time favorite polish color.  Sure I cheat sometimes and stray to other colors... just to see what they are like... but I always find myself back with this one.  It is Cajun Shrimp by OPI and it's FAB!  It has this orang-y-ish (yes, I just made that a word) tint to it... is bright and just makes me happy.  I take my pedicures very seriously... I go every 2 weeks.  Let's call it an attitude adjustment.  I started going when I was pregnant with M1... when I couldn't even see my dang toes... and it became an addiction.
 2)  The hubs is from the Chicago area and we are huge Cubs and Bears fans... well, this week Adrian Peterson (go Bears!) came to visit at our school.  The boys wore their Bears gear, got to meet AP... and get him to sign books.  AP went to and played football for Georgia Southern University here where we live... and he travels here often to meet with groups of kids... how cool is that?!!?!?!
 3)  Had date night last Friday night in Savannah.... had some amazing shrimp and grits on River Street (nom...nom...nom) and then talked Mr. Funky Fresh into taking me to Target to stalk the dollar bins.  I found these treasures and snatched up several a few.  I am going to Wal Mart this weekend in search of yellow sponges to cut into the shape of french fries!  I am planning on making them into a math center... and I'm so excited about it!
 4)  I've had a very laid back kinda week... lots of spending time at home... trying to find the perfect balance of work, home, etc.... This is my 11th year and I still haven't found that perfect balance... but I still try!  Took my crew to Steak and Shake for dinner... even though it was going to mean a late bedtime... even though it was unhealthy... here is my crew at dinner {proof that I am obviously the only normal one in my family!!!} 
5)  Didn't do much with my TpT stuff this week.... in fact I bought a bunch!  That's the beauty of the website...  when I know that I won't have time to make something... there is always something worthy when I look!  I did make a cursive practice pack {Let's Conquer Cursive} and I have had a good response with it so far!

I hope that you guys had a great Friday... and hopefully will have an even better weekend.  See y'all soon!  {oh... what is your favorite OPI polish color if you have one?}

  3. I too just found your blog through Doodle Bugs. I love the pedicure every two weeks. I have just come back from a great break and had one every two days and will now have them regularly.

  4. I just found you through the link up! That is too funny about AP, we had Izzy Idonije from the Bears visit our school this week too. From all indications and his time up here AP is great, and if I'm not mistaken he used to stutter as a child too. Awesome!

    1. Matt... how cool! Yes, he still stutters now and just wrote his book Don't Dis My Ability. His message to our students was really powerful! Hope you'll have a great weekend!

  9. Cajun Shrimp is my FAVORITE summer and spring color!! It's definitely time to rock it! When I found it at the grocery store I snagged it so I have my own touch-up bottle!!
