Friday! Friday! Friday!

When I'm working the weeks seem to drag but then as I sit down to write each Friday's five, I feel like time flew.  LOL  Not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing but any time a Friday rolls around, it's a good thing! Cheers to Friday!!

ONE: Four years ago, when I started teaching second grade I discovered Teachers Pay Teachers, an online marketplace where teachers create and sell resources for other teachers to use in their classrooms.  Since I've moved to teaching Library and Technology, I haven't been using it that much.  BUT I decided to "like" Teachers Pay Teachers on Facebook recently, and because of this, found out that they post FREE resourses when sellers reach milestones!  And it's for a limited time- a few minutes, half hour, hour, and the like.  I have gotten so many free things and now have reignited my obsessesion with TpT!  If you're a teacher I highly recommend this.  I wish I was creative enough to create my own things to sell on TpT!

TWO: Thursday at my school we had a dress down day to raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness.  I was really excited to wear my pink and dress down for the day.  Any day I can wear jeans to work is a good day!  I have been sporting pink every Friday in October to show my support for Breast Cancer, so I was glad to have an extra day!  I will be documenting my October Pink in a What I Wore Wednesday post soon!!

THREE: I'm not ashamed to say that this week, more often than not, I ate breakfast for dinner! It's the perfect meal for me! I just love it.  I't might just have been pop-tarts, cereal, and waffles but it was so yummy!!  Who else loves breakfast for dinner??

FOUR: Today is Halloween.  And I'm spending it at a Teacher Conference all day!  BOOOOOO!!  But then I'm going to have a sleepover at my sister's house with my sister and her daughters (my old houseguests!).  I can't wait.  We are gonig to watch scary movies and I'm sure eat some of the candy they score while trick-or-treating.   As for me, I'm giving out halloween pencils to anyone who knocks on my door!  I think it's the teacher in me. At my house we don't get many trick-or-treaters! And since I'm only going to be home answering the door for about an hour I didn't want to spend the money on a huge bag of candy, that I'd probably end up eating the most of!

FIVE: Next week is one of my favorite nights of the year...The CMA Awards on ABC hosted by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood! So ABC pretty much has lots of country programming heading into the show.  I can't wait.  I am not ashamed to admit, I rock out in my living room!!And I have been loving all the interviews and promos Carrie and Brad have been doing.  This one is my favorite.  If you're a country music fan, don't miss it!  Wednesday, November 5th on ABC. I love country award shows because country artists seem to love and support one another.  They all sing along to one another's songs.  I do too!! :)

Have a great weekend everyone!!

  2. I love Brad & Carrie hosting together....they play off each other perfectly! I hope she shows off her bump too.

  3. Thanks for the great tip on Teachers Pay Teachers! I have some teacher friends and am thinking about homeschooling, so I would love to keep an eye on that page :) Breakfast for dinner... yes ma'am! I have been defrosting and eating my pumpkin pancakes that I made awhile ago -- adding a bit of coconut oil to make me feel healthy :) lol
