Friday...Lots of faves to choose from this week!!

This week, I had plans cancelled left and right.  So I spent lots of time reading, lots of time blogging and online.  But I still have a bunch of faves to chose from this week.  Here are my top five!

{ONE} Shutterfly's 50% off sale! 
This might just be my most fave this week!  If you know me, follow me on insta, or have been reading the blog awhile, you might know that, for the past two summers, I've put together a recap of my summer, called Summer in an Insta in a collage frame from Shutterfly!  The 2014 frame I ordered in I think May of 2015!  HA!  So I am so excited this year that I can order it right after Labor Day!!  And at 50% off, that is HUGE!!  I've already started putting the collage together and will be finishing it up this weekend.  It looks like Hurricane Hermine will be foiling our Labor Day Weekend plans, so I guess now my summer photos are pretty set!  Head to Shutterfly to get the deal too!

It's a little hard to see but this is last year's Summer in an Insta Frame!

{TWO}  My Final Pair of Go-to Shorts!
Earlier this summer, I posted about my favorite go-to shorts!  I mentioned in the post that the only color go-to's I was missing was the purple.  Well, this past week, they were on summer sale with free shipping on any order AND they had my size! So I took that as a sign that I should go for it and get them! And since a pink pair was stolen from my suitcase in the DR, I thought why not?  I'm so excited I did!!  It was my final summer purchase!!  There's a 50% off sale at JCrew Factory this weekend, if your interested!!

{THREE} On Tuesdays we eat Rice Pudding!
Many of my plans were cancelled this week, but my mom and I spent a nice day together on Tuesday, we did a little shopping and we went to our new favorite place.  The Crepe and rice pudding cafe in town!  My mom is a huge rice pudding fan.  When we went to lunch there earlier this summer, we found out that on Tuesdays, the rice pudding is buy one, get one free!! So crazy!  And you won't even believe what a huge savings it is.  On Wednesday, we came home with a ridiculous amount of rice pudding, but we shared! :)
This wasn't even the half of it!  This was just the haul I took home.  Oh and that top one was pumpkin!!  YUM!!!

{FOUR} You go Grandma!
Did you see the story of the Grandma who wanted hot firefighters at her 105th birthday?? Well she got her wish!!  So cute!  Check out her story here!

{FIVE}  Back to School on The Blended Blog
This week I headed back to School-unofficially!  Wednesday we had a Back to School BBQ where the students came and dropped off all their supplies, met new friends and reconnected with old.  And yesterday was a PD day for teachers.  Thursday I posted a Back to School Survival Guide for Teachers on The Blended Blog.  I would love it, if you checked it out!  Hopefully it gives you a giggle during this hectic Back to School time!

And now before the students return on Tuesday, and it's back to reality for me, I'm off to enjoy a four- day Holiday Weekend!  With the hurricane coming, we are expected to see it remnants, so  I see lots of reading, blogging, and interneting in my future...again!  I am thinking about binge-watching Stranger Things too.  It seems to have been all over this week and I've heard good things!  Have you seen it??

Hope you all enjoy the long weekend as well!!

 Linking up today with:
Erika and the girls for Friday Favorites

  1. I have never had rice pudding, lol. YAY on the Shutterfly deal!! I'm still working on a Europe trip "scarp book". We went in 2013. Hope you have a great weekend!

  2. I love Shutterfly and I want that frame...I forgot they have other things too other than photobooks

  3. I've never had rice pudding! Love Shutterfly!

  4. Now I'm hungry for rice pudding! Haha.

  5. I will be up next Tuesday for the two-fer rice pudding deal. I love it. A teacher friend of mine used to make the Mexican version, arroz con leche, by the crockpot full for faculty breakfasts. Oh so good. Glad you were able to score your purple go-to shorts and replace your pinkies. How did you come out with the settlement from the airline after your DR trip? There WAS a settlement, right?
    Hope you and your students have a great first day together. XO

  6. I am not arise putting fan so you can have my freebie :-) I did watch Stranger Things; it was outside of my comfort zone. I don't usually watch scary stuff. I do not like how it ended but I will probably watch the next season. What did you think?
