High Five for Friday!

Hello, Friday! You are awesome! :) Speaking of awesome, this week rocked. Here are my top five things from this week:

1. Date night with the husband on Wednesday! We drove like 55 miles out of the way to go eat at his favorite bbq joint.
Bored along the way. :)
2. After dinner, Aaron allowed me to shop at the outlet mall near the restaurant. I say "allowed" because he knows what he's in for when I go to an outlet mall. I transform into a crazed power shopper. Anyways, while shopping I venture into American Eagle. Really? My students shop there - not me! HOWEVER, I stumbled upon their "Original Boot" jeans. Ladies, they are wonderful. As a matter of fact, I just ordered two pairs online! Now, shopping for capris is another story. I am short and curvy, and capris feel weird on me. Any brand suggestions, girls?

I only wear dark wash. :)

3. State assessment practice is finally OVER! Now I get to see my students' scores, and I can start really cramming them full of review for the actual test! Ya know, the BIG one.

4. I briefly mentioned this in my last post, but I must  express my enthusiasm once again. I have completely planned out my next year of teaching (only for my 8th graders though). I am beyond thrilled, but as a middle school teacher, I know that nothing ever goes as planned. But that's okay, I feel like I'm on top of things, for a moment. 

5. Today I am finally finishing up my flower bed! My husband bought a little storage building on Thursday, so he'll be outside putting it together. We are being totally domestic! (Yeah right!)  But, I do feel like we are getting this place into some shape!

So that's my week! Be sure to visit LAUREN at From My Grey Desk blog! I love linking up with her and everyone else! :)

Have an altogether lovely weekend! 


  1. I love capris. I am also short and curvy so I always have any idea of what they will look like on me and then I put them on and it never matches the picture in my head. LOL

    I don't know of any brand, but I know that when the style is more straight leg or the bottom just slightly flairs out it balances out my hips and is more flattering.

    1. Thanks for the tip! I will keep this in mind when I go shopping again. Sometimes I just get so frustrated! :) Thanks for stopping by!!

  2. American Eagle is the only place I find pants that fit! Who cares if your students shop there :)

    happy friday!

    1. I'm glad I'm not alone! :) Thanks for stopping by!

    thanks for linking up, girl!

  4. Aww, thanks Lauren! :) Linking up is so much fun!
