So this week I was pretty much a #bloggerfail!  I had lots of posts I wanted to do...none of them happened.  The first week back at work I was tired, yes, but I made it through.  This week I was dead on my feet!  I got home from work each night and did nothing.  Well, I didn't actually do nothing, but I just felt like I got home, looked up, and it was 9 o'clock at night already!  YIKES!!  Does this ever happen to anyone else!?!  Oh well, some week's you win...some weeks all you do is read!!  LOL  I'm back on track though for a Friday 5...just love recapping the week!

#SCARFWEEK: A fave this week was definitely #scarfweek!  I found out about #scarfweek through a blogger, Becky, on instagram.  I found her when searching the "based on people you follow" and her "#scarfweek photo jumped out at me.  I decided to play along and make this week scarf week too!  It's been so fun.  Each day I posted a different photo of me in a scarf on Insta.  You can see my looks by following me there.  And next week I'll have all my looks in a WIWW post!

Golden Globes Faves: Since I never got a weekend recap up, I thought I'd share my favorite looks/moments from the Golden Globes on Sunday night!  Usually I'm really good and have seen at least one or two of the movies.  This year I hadn't seen any!  But I was set with my TV picks.  I had my wine, snacks and ballot all set to go!  (And yes..I was alone!)  Every year I always say I should have a party so that I can actually talk to someone else about the show...not just myself!  I am SOOOO happy Anna from Downton and Kevin Spacey won (even if he did drop that F-bomb!). I also really like Tina and Amy as hosts...them not hosting next year is quite the loss but this year I wish we saw more of them!  My top celeb looks were Jennifer Lopez and I really liked that Emma Stone went with pants!  Cute couple alert goes to Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum.  I am not ashamed to admit I have seen Step Up 101 times!!

I really love George Clooney and thought his speech was really heartfelt, but seriously, am I the only one who wishes his wife smiled and blew him a kiss after all his fabulous compliments???  Geeezzz!!!  I saw something online this week that was like "20 times George Clooney's wife looked bored" true!!  Wish I remembered where I had seen that.
Did you have a favorite moment or look from the Globes?  Let me know in the comments below!

Favorite Teaching Moment: This week is one of my fave to teach the littles.  We have off on Monday for Martin Luther King Day so this week is Martin Week in Library.  I read the story Martin's Big Words to the classes and we do fun activities to go along with it during checkout.  While I was reading the story Monday, a first grader yelled out (usually frowned upon!  HA!) War is not the answer...Love is!  Love is the answer!"  My heart just about melted!!  It was the bright spot in my Monday!!

Favorite Book!  So I haven't blogged much this week, but I've read!  I am near the end of The Husband's Secret.  I am really liking it!  It is really a page-turner.  But I can actually say that I pretty much figured out what the husband's secret wasearly on!!!  I've already requested her book Big Little Lies at the Library.

Favorite Song!  I'll admit when I first heard All about that Bass, I thought Meghan Trainor might be a one-hit wonder, but now she has her second song out and her album came out this week!  This next sing will also be a hit too!  I've had it on repeat since before Christmas and LOVE it.  it's like a 50's throwback and super fun and catchy! Actually a lot of her songs are!  I'm definitely on the Meghan Trainor train!  :)  Hope this helps to kickstart your weekend!!!  Have a great one!

  4. Ugh... I have been having one of those weeks (or month??) of just not getting off my feet with the blogging and the New Year! Vacation just messed me up. And I can't believe I just completely missed #scarfweek... I saw it last week, and then just forgot to participate. Poo :( Glad you had fun!! Thanks for linking up with us at H54F!!
