Five for Friday {Spring Break Style!}

After a little vacation from blogging, I am coming out of hiding to link up Five For Friday with Doodle Bugs Teaching!   

We are on spring break! Yay!! Last weekend was gorgeous and then Tuesday hit and we had a 40 degree drop in temperature in one day. It was snowing all morning and was cold enough to stick. Yuck!
Before leaving for break, I gave my students a little Easter treat. I love these little cups that were four for $.97 at Walmart. I put some Easter candy and a pencil in them.

I finally signed up after reading all about Stitch Fix!! I can't wait to get my first box of clothes/accessories in the mail next week. I don't make time for myself to shop often with two kids that I have to shop for as well. I'm also not up on the latest trends and could use my personal stylist to help me! I'll let you know how it goes with the first shipment. :)
We spent Tuesday and Wednesday night in a hotel about 30 miles from home. The kids thought we were in another world though! We went to an indoor water park all day Wednesday. It is exhausting but the kids loved it!

Here is my six year old (soon to be seven) who is getting so grown up! She has several students in her class that wear glasses and she had to get some fake ones for herself! Haha! I remember wanting glasses, especially in middle school and we used to "borrow" our friends' glasses to wear. Lilly might be out of luck since neither myself or my husband have ever worn glasses. Hopefully, the good vision genes got to her too! :)
 Here she is with her shipment from Little Passports that came recently. Her great aunt gave her a subscription as a present and she loves it! This month the package was from Egypt and she had to excavate this plaster pyramid to find the hidden treasure inside. :)

I'm Lovin Lit is hosting two awesome fundraising bundles to help raise money for her nephew Jaydon. You can read more about his story here.
This is the 3-6 bundle:
This is the K-2 bundle.
Each bundle is only $10.00!! The bundles are only active for a limited time though!

Have a great weekend everyone!! 


  1. I am getting my first Stitch Fix next week too! I'm excited! Also, I've been trying out Gwynnie Bee for the last month -- it's like Netflix for clothes -- and the first 30 days are free. I just posted about it yesterday.

  2. Sounds like you've had a great week, Holly! I can't do the StitchFix thing...I love to shop too much! It's my therapy. Can't wait to see you new outfits. Have a wonderful Easter!!
