Five For Friday: July 8th

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.

I also love all of the red, white and blue apparel! I tend to buy a lot of red and blue in the summer. My sister and I made these shoes a couple summers ago, and they're perfect for the fourth ;)

Today is Free Stuff Friday!! Be sure to enter in the Rafflecopter on my last blog post for a chance to win! We are giving away 7 $50 gift cards!

Reading, reading, reading! I've been checking books off my summer reading list! I'm participating in a book journey called Teacher Book Trek, and it's fabulous. I've met some really great teachers who have a passion for reading like me. I just finished Save Me A Seat and it was incredible. :) So check it out if you're looking for a good read!

During our trek we add notes to the book containing our thoughts or favorite parts :) I was the third teacher with this book and it's already full of so many notes. Love it!

What books have you read this summer?

Yesterday I went school shopping with some of my favorite people, my coworkers! We hit KC and went to Mardel's, Target, IKEA, US Toy, Five Below and Hobby Lobby!

We shopped 'til we dropped, that's for sure!

Check out those giant dice! So fun!
