Five For Friday- May 10th!!!

It's My Favorite Day of the Week (and quite possibly yours too!!)...FRIDAY!!!

Happy Friday friends!! We have made it to another weekend and a very important one! I want to wish all of the mothers a very Happy Mother's Day!! I hope you enjoy the day with your loved ones. =-)

It's another Five For Friday with Doodle Bugs Teaching!! 


This is quickly becoming one of my favorite linky parties, because I love taking pictures! I post a lot of my school pictures on Instagram, so if you want to follow me there, my user name is learningissomethingtotreasure. I would love to follow you back, as well, so stop on by!!

1. Mother's Day Gifts!! 

We were hard at work at Mother's Day gifts this week. I found this idea on Pinterest and just fell in love with it! Here is an example of a bag that one of my lovely students made...

So off to Wal Mart my teaching buddy and I went and stocked up on tote bags, fabric paint, and fabric markers. I think they came out adorable. My students had a wonderful time creating these bags and were so proud of the final product!! I think we will definitely be doing these again next year.

2. Shopping the BIG TPT sale!!!

Raise your hand if you hit up the big TPT Teacher Appreciation Sale!!!! I was so excited to shop 'til I dropped!! Here are some of my purchases (which by the way, I had A LOT more in my cart, but had to cut back a little bit). After all, I don't think the hubs would've appreciated me spending our tax return on Teachers Pay Teachers!

I LOVE some clip art!!! I might look into a clip art addicts anonymous if I keep this up!!! 
I also bought this...

Have I mentioned how much I love Ashley Hughes's clip art?!?! Let's see if you can notice a trend here...
What else do you think I purchased?? Take a look....

Shocker!!! More clip art!!! And then I bought...

Yes, yes you guessed it...MORE clip art!!! And finally, let's guess what I bought last...

You've got it!!! Even more clip art!! If Ashley Hughes is out there, please don't tell my hubby how much I spend on your clip art! lol :-) I have big plans for creating this summer and I was so excited to stock up on all of the great deals out there. What great deals did you stock up on?? Please share!!!

3. True Blue or Think Pink?!?!?!?

I am now 18 weeks pregnant and I am finally able to get my ultrasound to check everything out and find out what we are having!!! I am SOOOOO excited!! Thursday is the big day! I can't wait to let you know what we're having. I am wondering if I can wait 6 more days. The suspense is driving me crazy!!!!

4. Teacher Appreciation Week

As everyone knows, this week was teacher appreciation week. I really felt the love from my students this year. I received so many cards, pictures, flowers, and presents of school supplies, candles, and candy. I truly was spoiled! Despite all of these goodies, the truly treasure lies in my students. They make me excited to come to work every day. I truly am thankful for my career, despite the challenges that teachers face on a day to day basis.

I just love how my students pay close attention to the candy that I eat and know what I love!! Baby R and I were extremely happy to put this to use! I felt a lot of kicks of approval in my belly. :-) My students always know how to put a smile on my face!!!

5. Spending some sick time home with my little one...

My poor daughter, who is almost 4, has been battling a stomach bug/cough/fever on and off for a week now. This morning was supposed to be her first field trip, but I got a call from the office that she was up there sick. Despite not feeling well, my daughter is always a trooper and never shows it. Look at that smile...

So after checking her out of school this morning, we headed to the doctor's office. It turns out after some chest x-rays that she has pneumonia in her left lung. My poor baby!!! We have some antibiotics and luckily we caught it well before it became serious. So I have some TLC and snuggling to give my little one this weekend. :-)

Share your week in pictures and link up with Kacey over at Doodle Bugs Teaching for her Five for Friday!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!!! The summer is near!!


  1. The Mother's Day bags are adorable! That's a super idea! :) I hope your daughter gets better quickly and I'm glad you caught it early!
