Five for Friday {Sunday Edition}

Oh how happy I am knowing that an extra day off awaits me tomorrow morning!  Who else is looking forward to some extra time off this Presidents Day weekend?  This means I can take a break from grading and homework and research and all that jazz to actually blog!  Granted, my Five for Friday post is coming to you two days late.  But better late than never, right?

On Friday, we had our Valentine's Day party at school. This year, my first graders made little love monster bags for their treats. I threw this together kind of last minute but am very pleased with how it turned out! The kids thought their bags were so cute and really had a blast making them their own.

At 24 years of age, I finally made a batch of cookies from scratch that were edible amazing tasting!  I used this recipe that I found on Pinterest. If you are a fan of brown sugar or any type of sugar cookie, you have to try these! I nearly ate them all within a matter of days.

I've decided to try out some hot dots in my classroom this year. I think we are at the point in the year where my students could benefit from something new, since the novelty of the tablets and computers is starting to wear off. I purchased two pens and two different sets of cards, so we'll see how they like it!

I finally took the plunge and scheduled my first ever fix from Stitch Fix - and boy was I thrilled! Everything my stylist picked out was so me and I could tell she took the time to look through my Pinterest boards to see what kinds of things I liked. I decided to keep the two blouses pictured in the middle and have already scheduled my next fix. It's safe to say I am hooked!

Last but certainly not least, I had an amazing Valentine's Day - dinner at one of my favorite restaurants, a trip to the teacher store, two tickets to 50 Shades of Grey, and one dozen roses.  How sweet is my man?

  1. I've been going back and forth on setting up a Stitch Fix. I've heard such great things from everyone that I might have to try it. I love that they check your Pinterest.
