Friday Favorites {The Back to School Edition!}

Friday is here!  Thank goodness!!  Now that I'm back to school, I live for Friday!  HA!!  I haven't shared a legit Friday Favorites post since I've been back at like FOREVER!! Actually it's been a pretty long while since I've blogged at all!  Sometimes life happens!!

SO  this week I'm back sharing my faves with a back to school theme!  These are my Back to School Faves!!

The Follett Destiny App!
This is by far my most favorite thing about this new school year!!  I have now been the librarian at my school for five years, and in all that time, the book scanner NEVER worked!!  This week I was saved!!  I downloaded the Follett Destiny App and can now quickly and easily check the students books out.  And the students love watching me do it! !Seriously...have not stopped talking about this app since I got it!  A Serious Life Saver!

Air Conditioning in the Library!!
This year, for the first time EVER, there's air conditioning in the library, and clearly I am loving it.  And have used it as an excuse to already wear a scarf, sweater and my riding boots!!  HA! It seems those these last few days, that my AC will be a thing of the past.  Summer temps last week...winter temps this week!! Ugh!!

Scholastic Book orders! 
This year I decided I really want to take the library to a whole new level.  Thanks to the Follett App, I've been reinvigorated, and I want the library to be, too.  I am weeding out super old books and making way for new ones.  I am ordering new books for the library from Scholastic Book Clubs and having the older students order books through me as well, so I can rack up the bonus points and get free books for the library!  I think I get more excited than the kids when the book box arrives!!

Happy Hours/Dinners with Teacher Friends
This year I've made steady plans to do monthly happy hours from school and dinners with teacher friends.  Being single, I can do both these things...HA!  Dinners with my mom teacher friends and Happy Hours once a month with my work friends.  For me it a win-win!

The routine of it ALL!
It's no secret that I love summer, but being back at school, I am really enjoying the routine of it all. I am getting up and getting to school earlier than I have in the past and I'm really ok with it.  I can get a lot don'e in the quiet early mornings.  I also actually enjoy having somewhere to be every day!  i am having a really good year so far and I'm grateful for that.  I might still be counting down to Christmas vacation it all the same!!

Woo!  Thanks for letting me share these last few weeks with you!!  Have a great weekend!  Fingers crossed I can get some fun posts up to share next week!!

Linking up for Friday Favorites with Erika today!!


  1. I used to LOVE scholastic book orders! How cool that you still get to partake as an adult. And yes to happy hours. How would we survive without them?!

  2. Scholastic Book Fair was my favorite back in the day! So fun you get to still do those! Your happy hours and dinner sound fun :)

  3. I loved scholastic book orders! It was one of my favorite things about elementary school! Happy Weekend!

  4. Air conditioning- YES! Couldn't go without it down here!

  5. I just ordered our first scholastic books from Baby Fox's class...does it come to my house or will it go to the school? I wasn't really sure. One of the reason I was motivated to order books was I didn't want Baby Fox to feel left out if everyone was getting books and he didn't, how ordered I did, hehe...Lego books of course, but whatever, at least he wants to read.

  6. My favorite thing to buy the boys were Scholastic books. I used to get so excited when the order came in - I love books!

  7. Assalamualaikum Salam sejahtera untuk kita semua, Sengaja ingin menulis
    sedikit kesaksian untuk berbagi, barangkali ada teman-teman yang sedang
    kesulitan masalah keuangan, Awal mula saya mengamalkan Pesugihan Tanpa
    Tumbal karena usaha saya bangkrut dan saya menanggung hutang sebesar
    1M saya sters hampir bunuh diri tidak tau harus bagaimana agar bisa
    melunasi hutang saya, saya coba buka-buka internet dan saya bertemu
    dengan KYAI SOLEH PATI, awalnya saya ragu dan tidak percaya tapi selama 3 hari
    saya berpikir, saya akhirnya bergabung dan menghubungi KYAI SOLEH PATI
    kata Pak.kyai pesugihan yang cocok untuk saya adalah pesugihan
    penarikan uang gaib 4Milyar dengan tumbal hewan, Semua petunjuk saya ikuti
    dan hanya 1 hari Astagfirullahallazim, Alhamdulilah akhirnya 4M yang saya
    minta benar benar ada di tangan saya semua hutang saya lunas dan sisanya
    buat modal usaha. sekarang rumah sudah punya dan mobil pun sudah ada.
    Maka dari itu, setiap kali ada teman saya yang mengeluhkan nasibnya, saya
    sering menyarankan untuk menghubungi KYAI SOLEH PATI Di Tlp 0852-2589-0869
