Five For Friday First Time...on a Sunday!!

I decided to link up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for the Five For Friday Linky for my very first time!! So here it goes...

1. Changin' Up My Easel

This was the easel my mom gave me when she retired a few years ago. I decided to give it a little makeover!!

Here is the new and improved. I painted all the tray and the book boxes black to go with my ROCKSTAR theme. I think I am going to bling it out a bit to give it some pizazz!! I need  to put some labels on the book tubs and some cuteness here and there!!!

2. A Little Shopping!!

Love me some Ann Taylor Loft!! Found this cute little number the other day! It has bright yellow piping around the neck, waist and zipper!! You know what that means??? Shoe shopping time!! I found the perfect pair...

Tell me those won't be so much fun with that dress!!

3. IPad Minis

Yes, you do see 2 Ipad Minis. My grade level partner and I applied for a grant earlier this year. We received enough money so we could each get 2 Ipad Minis for our class. I am so excited to use these for the upcoming school year!

4. Surviving the HEAT WAVE!!

This is where I have been the past couple of days. We have been 103+ degrees. Tuesday looks like 
108!! Yuck!!! 

5. Girl Fun!!

This is one of my fabulous students from this past year.  She comes from an amazing family.  Her mom is our school secretary and both her grandmothers helped out in my classroom every week. Last Sunday her grandfather was in a near fatal accident. You can't imagine how long and emotional this past week has been for them... especially for this little one.

And that's where GIRL FUN happens. Her mom and grandma dropped her off at my house so they could spend the day at the hospital and we could have some fun!! We baked cookies, went to Farmer's Market, shopped at Charming Charlies, picked out nail polish at Ulta, did a little book shopping, went to lunch, and finished our day swimming in the pool and doing our nails.

Here is my ROCKSTAR student and teaching partner! 

What a great day we had!!


  1. LOVE LOVE LOVE that dress Christa! I'm obsessed with polka dots!!! :) I'm jealous of your pool ;-)

  2. Your dress is sweet. I enjoy the Loft too. I understand your heat issue. Tomorrow is supposed to be around 109! Yikes!
