Five For Friday

Happy Friday friends :)

I hope your week has been as wonderful as mine! I can't believe the week is already over. I'm linking up with Kacey from Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five For Friday.

I wasn't lucky enough to attend the TPT conference this year, and I am so heartbroken! I'm getting so jelly seeing all the pictures on social media! But it's motivation enough not to miss it next year. I'm hoping you had a blast if you went!

Have you ever fallen in love with a refrigerator? Because I have! We went shopping for home appliances and furniture for the new house this week and I met my dream fridge. We immediately hit it off and I'm pretty sure I will get to take him home. 

Talk about eye candy. ;)

I participated in this weeks "Tell All Tuesday" link up! If ya'll guessed that number one was my lie, then you are correct! I worked in a K class all through college, so I thought that's what I wanted to teach, but third grade has my heart! If you hopped through and made a guess, thank you for following along! I can't wait for next week's topic! 

With a month left of summer, I decided it was time to get into my classroom and try to fix whatever mess awaited. I was actually excited to start! That was before I ever entered the building though.
Do you ever just get into your classroom and have no motivation? Well that was me! I think I walked around my room 10 times just thinking about what I needed to do. Haha. I took some old things down and cleaned out my desk, but that was it! 

How I stuffed this much junk into my desk, I don't know. But it's all out! I'm going to a teacher table next year so all this stuff will have to find a new home! Any reason to buy more containers! ;)

I'll leave you with this cute picture of my baby. I got him a new shirt so we have to show it off.

Tell All Tuesday 2.0: Two Truths and a Lie

Happy Tuesday, beautiful people! I hope you had a great start to your week. I can't believe it's the middle of July already! Ah! 
I am linking up with My Day in K and Teach Talk Inspire for their weekly summer linky. Every Tuesday we will have a fun topic to discuss! This Tuesday we are playing a game called Two Truths and a Lie.

I am not a good liar, like at all. I giggle and smile, people can always tell if I'm fibbing. Luckily ya'll are reading this so I will attempt to trick you ;)

1. When I graduated college I got a job as a kindergarten teacher. I then realized that kindergarten wasn't as much my thing as I hoped it would be and found a spot in 3rd. I like that these guys are more independent, but just as loving. I miss the silly things the kinders say though! Now I've been in third ever since. :)

2. I am the pickiest eater ever! I could eat off the kids menu every time I go out and I would be totally satisfied. I dislike onions, seafood, peppers, beans, and the list goes on. I refuse to eat anything spicy, even ketchup is too much for me sometimes.

3. Growing up I wanted to be a lawyer and an interior designer (Because both at the same time make sense 😜). I think Legally Blonde had something to do with it. I'm also pretty good at arguing ;) As I got older, I realized that probably wasn't the best job for me. I loved working with the tiny humans too much.

All right, now it's your turn to guess! Leave a comment saying which one is my lie! I'll come back with an answer on Friday :)

Be sure to check out the links below to read about more truths and lies!

Happy Friday, loves! I'm linking up with Kacey from Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday this week! I hope you have all had a great week!


On Monday I celebrated the Fourth with family and friends. The 4th of July is my favorite holiday. I love watching the fireworks go off. I'm not much into shooting them, but everything else is great.
