Five for Friday

It is that time again, FRIDAY!!!  One of my favorite days of the week and what a great way to end the week on Valentine's Day.   

Up first I want to share with you my newest digital paper pack that I recently added to my TpT shop.  I added it just in time for Read Across America.   I can't wait to use it on some of my Dr. Seuss activities that I will do with my kiddos.  I think this may be my favorite pack yet.! The solid colors are distressed and textured, which I love when digital paper has that look to it.   Be sure to snag it up for all your Dr. Seuss activities coming up.  How do you celebrate Read Across America?  Leading up to the big day we have a "Wacky" dress day for each day of the week and then on that Friday we rotate through stations/teachers with different activities and books.  It is such a fun day for the teachers and kids.

I stuffed Valentine's treats for the girls' and my class.   My students are getting treat cups with candy, lip whistles, and pencils.  The girls are giving whoopee cushions with their cards.  Their Valentine's cards were a freebie from Rachelle at What the Teacher Wants.   


Some of you may have already seen these on my Instagram page, but I am posting again.  This past weekend my girls had their Daddy Daughter Dance at school.   It was a really big deal to them.  They were so excited to get all fancied up!!!  They have another Daddy Daughter Dance this weekend this time for our church.  My youngest informed me she may need another dress since this is another special occasion, I told her my wallet disagrees with her.  She will be wearing her same dress again!!!!

A dozen of roses from the hubs for Valentine's Day - melt my heart!!!  They were so pretty!!

My friend posted this on Facebook and I just had to share.  With all this cold weather I am definitely missing the sun and my annual beach vacation!!!!   I am ready to book my beach front home for the week and bring on the warmer temps.  Hurry up summer!!!!

That about wraps it up for me!!!  Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek.  Happy Valentine's Day!!!



  1. Cute Valentines! Your girls are adorable!

  2. Your girls are just precious! Love their dresses. I can't wait for the sunshine to come out so I can start hitting the beach here. It's been so beautiful and looks inviting, but still too chilly for me!

    1. I go through spurts. I have times where I check in often and then I will be MIA for a few weeks. I try to sit and squeeze in an hour in here and there once everyone is in the bed or before everyone gets up!!! The weekends are the best because my kids LOVE to play outside with the neighborhood kids so they are constantly in and out playing. So if the weather is nice I can usually catch up on my blogging. Thanks for stopping by!!!
