It's Five for Friday Again...6-28-13

Hello my fellow friends!,
It's Friday which is my favorite day and my favorite blog post! It's Five For Friday with Kacey from Doodle Bugs Teaching! Here's what I've been up to this week!:
1. My daughter's 4th birthday!
Oh my goodness, my baby is 4 years old! Time is flying by way too fast! :-( We celebrated her birthday with our family on Sunday and it was mommy/daughter birthday time on Monday. Here are some snapshots of our time:
My daughter with her auntie!!!

What a ham! She's definitely not shy...

Our mommy/daughter day watching Monsters University!! It was a great movie! :-)
2. Working, working, working!
It feels good to be off and working on TPT products. Here is my current project that I am very excited about:
 I feel like I have TPT ADD (as my friend Amanda from One Extra Degree describes it). I feel like my current project is the slowest project ever, but I know it's going to be great when it's done! I had to laugh when Kimberly Geswein showed me this picture:
I'm stuck in the "this sucks-and it's boring" part LOL. Do you ever feel that way with a TPT project?!?!
3. Going broke!
This is my problem during the summer...I see the extra paychecks in my account and think I have more money than I have and start spending out of boredom. It's already dwindling down, but why let that stop me from buying a new couch. The hubs and I are headed to Rooms to Go to buy this set! As an excuse, our old reclining set has both handles broken off so we can never close it. Good excuse, right?!
4. Follow me on Bloglovin!!
Have you heard about the switch from Google Reader to Bloglovin'???
In a few days, there is no more google reader. Make sure you follow me on bloglovin'! There is a button on my sidebar to click to follow along! There is a tutorial in my blog post about how to sign up for Bloglovin'. In return I am choosing 2 people to win $10 worth of products from my TPT store. Click HERE to go to the giveaway post! Don't miss out!!
5. My final thought for today...
As I sat here and was organizing different ways to integrate technology in my classroom next year, I stumbled across this e-card that made me crack up! It's amazing how times have changed...
Ha! So true! I remember being excited about Mr. Sketch smelly markers!! Now my students have iPads and iPhones!
Have a FABULOUS Friday!,


  1. Your daughter is adorable!!! Love the Life of a Project...I always get stuck thinking it's boring too! Yours looks like it's going to be great! :)

  2. I just opened a TpT store a few weeks ago. I have so many ideas, but I get stuck when it comes to getting started! Love your graphic! And the ecard, so true!

  3. I saw that set! My kids want recliners so bad but i know they will break it in 5 minutes!!! Can you tell I am getting a new couch too? Except im waiting to see if city furniture is going to have a 4th of july sale!

  4. The picture of you and your daughter are adorable! What a cutie!

    Those couches look comfy. Good choice:) We finally bought new couches after our couch's springs were broken and the bottom was draggin on the ground. Still could've used it of course, but I wanted an excuse for new couches. :)

    I totally hear you on the TPT ADD! I have it bad. I currently have three projects almost done and two more that I started at various times. Good luck with your handwriting pack. The cover looks awesome!!

  7. What a sweetie you have!! I hear you on the money thing. Summer is too much time on my hands and browsing online. All those Veryjane emails, Groupdealz, Amazon it's terrible on my account! Love the new couches though. I just bought my first couch this year thanks to TpT!

  9. I LOVE your "Life of a Project!" Couldn't agree more. I just started TPT and I am learning about Power Point. I am super frustrated. Your daughter is so sweet. Four is a wonderful age. Enjoy!

  10. You have a precious baby girl, Lisa! Happy Birthday to her! I can't wait to see Write Like a Rock Star! The cover is adorable!! Happy Friday!
    Peace, Love, and First Grade

  11. Haha, I pinned that Someecard the other day. I was fancy when it was new marker time! Shopping+boredom was a problem for me last was all school stuff too. Ah well.

    That's like a TpT project constellation!

    You Might Be a First Grader….

  12. Happy Birthday to your little girl! She is adorable!
