Five for Friday

It's been a long time!  I'm so excited to be linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday!

She gets home tomorrow!  My oldest daughter has been in Costa Rica with our high school's travel club.  She was able to spend time volunteering at a local girls school near Puerto Viejo as well sightsee and enjoy the culture.  I can't wait to hear about her trip!

I can't decide if I'm more excited about going to Vegas for the TpT conference or shopping for outfits to wear at the conference!  Here are a few of my purchases (so far).
I have a thing for maxi dresses :-)

Rain, rain go away!  I'm all for a rainy day in the summer to enjoy down time in the house, but it has been raining in Indiana for a week.  Yesterday this happened!
Our dog was checking out the damage to my husband's police car.  Luckily, the car came away unscathed!  The tree not so much.

I'm starting my fifth Anchor Chart Toolkit today.  I love making these toolkits!  They take the hard work out of making anchor charts.

Finally, since the rain has no plans of stopping today, I'm taking my daughter and her friend to paint pottery.  I think I'll paint a set of  "a to z" bookends that I've been eyeing!

Have a great weekend!!


  1. I love those maxis! I haven't even started thinking about what I'm wearing to Vegas, and now I'm starting to freak out a little. Eeekk!!! Hope to see you there!!
