Five For Friday: What a Busy Week!

Are you tired? I have been so excited all week and it is finally catching up to me! I am getting the back- to- school- teacher -tiredness. I know you can relate! There has been a lot going on this week and I am excited to reflect back on it and share it with you! This Friday I'm linking up with  Doodle Bugs Teaching for yet another Five for Friday:) Enjoy!

Things are slowly starting to fall in place in my room! I have been up there everyday all day since Monday! Laminating, arranging, picking up, cutting paper, doing bulletin boards, organizing EVERYTHING, and making sure things are in place. I know this does not show you very much of my classroom but that is because a large classroom reveal with lots of pictures and ideas is coming! Stay tuned because it will be here very soon! :)

My husband and I were able to attend a family friend's wedding  this past weekend. Isn't she gorgeous?! It was a simple, yet elegant wedding which fits her personality perfectly. I thought she did a great job planning and organizing everything:) I just love everything about weddings and to tell you the truth, I really miss planning my own! I planned for 14 months and then POOF. You have no more need to plan! Don't get me wrong, I love being married:) Anyone have a wedding coming up that I can plan for them?! ;)

My husband and I are gearing up to take part in this wonderful class. I am a super budgeter, list making, Nerd. I can manage a budget and know all about getting out of debt, however, I'm taking it because I have not actually sat in on an actual class before. My husband's parents know all about Dave Ramsey's course and have taught us here and there the basics. Since we have not yet paid off our loans (hopefully there by May!), we have not gotten into any of the investment things and I am very interested in that! It's a very good program and I am so excited to learn even more about it than we already do!

Because I don't yet have to be back for staff week and am not yet on contract, I have been trying to get as many last minute things done as I can! Boy, why do I always wait until the last minute? Both of our family cars have gotten oil changes, renewed registries, inspections, and fixed. I've made dental appointments for both my husband and I the Saturday before I go back to work, and the house will be deep cleaned this weekend. The only thing left on the list is to get a haircut! Whew. I think I can manage that! 

I'm also trying my best to fit in time to read in the small cracks of time I have! I know the movie is coming out soon and I would like to have read this by then! Anyone else read this? I'm only a few pages in so I have lots to go! Eeek. The race is on!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend:) Check out what happened in everyone else's lives this week back at the linkup!


  1. I love your Chevron dress! And I couldn't disagree with you more about wedding planning : ) I was SO happy not to have to think about the wedding anymore. But I have found I am in the minority on that one. What grade are you teaching? Sounds like you've got a lot going on! Good luck with everything!

    1. Thank you! I just love chevron print! My classroom shows that as well! Well, it's a good thing you got your wedding planning over! ;) I am teaching first grade reading. We are blocked at our school so I just teach reading/writing to two sets of classes and my partner does math/science! Then I also teach Social Studies to my home room at the end of the day. I love it like that though and it's super fun! What grade do you teach?

  2. Wow! You have been super-productive!! What you said about weddings is SO TRUE! I read in your profile section that you are from South Dakota! I attended USD! Where are you from in South Dakota?

    1. How neat! I am from Rapid City! Did you just go to college there or are you still in SD?
