Friday High Fives

High Fives go out to:

1) My sister for graciously watching Kaylee Monday night while I had parent night. I was out about 30 minutes longer than intended but she was okay with it. Plus, she is going to watch Kaylee again for me in a couple of weeks. So thankful that I have a kind sister and Kaylee has a kind aunt :)

2) Velvetta for creating a yummy cheesy skillet meal. We tried the Nacho Supreme meal this week. It was good, so good the hubby wanted more and ate the leftovers the next day. We are excited to try some of the other skillet meals that they have.

3) Mine and Kaylee's sweet visit with her grandneighborlady (my former classroom teacher neighbor). Kaylee's grandneighborlady has been suffering from pancreatic cancer for little over a year. We were way overdue for a visit, and we really enjoyed each other's company. Hope we get another one soon!

4) Our yummy Domino pizza from last night. It took forever long for my order to get ready, but I understood since the weather was yucky and it was Dominos Pizza Night for many schools. Their veggie pizza is delicious, I highly recommend it!

5) The three day weekend ahead! Lots of hard labor goes into the first few weeks of school as a teacher. After 4 weeks, an extra day off will feel wonderful plus I get to hang out with this cool chick :)

Link Up and Share Your High Fives for Friday!

Dear Friday

Dear Blogger,
Sorry for slacking off lately. My three main jobs of being a mommy, wife, and teacher have taken all of my time and more. I will try to be better!

Dear Friday,
Thank you for existing. You are my favorite day.

Dear Kaylee,
I hope those teeth of yours don't hurt too much anymore. You haven't been sleeping so well this week, just pop them out already and sleep in tomorrow morning please :) By the way, I'm LOVIN your ponytail girl!
Dear Bunheads,
I have found that I really like you and all your abcfamily glory. The fact that it is Gilmore Girl created, finding random GG characters in each episode is a highlight of mine.

Dear Sunday buffet plans,
Please don't let me eat too much goodness. I do not need to gain 5 pounds in one setting. Although the fried catfish, fried okra, and variety of desserts will be divine in the moment :)

Dear self,
How the heck have you managed to make it to the end of week 6 on the C25K app? Very proud of ya!

Saturday Morning= Relaxation

Sure was nice to sleep in till 8:15 this morning. I feel refreshed and ready to enjoy my weekend with the family. JoJo and I have been hanging this morning while Kaylee and Eric sleep a little longer.
Smart dog uses pillows :)

I emptied the dishwasher, made some cinnamon toast, and am now enjoying the Olympics. I am sad they are going to be over this weekend!
Happy Saturday blog friends!

Finally Friday :)

I forget how much I love Fridays until the school year gets going :) So nice to sit and relax for a bit. Gotta love that Kaylee is napping for me too! First week went well, I just need to get all my "beginning of the school year" paperwork organized so I don't feel so overwhelmed with stuff. 

Here are some random pictures from life outside of school this past week:
Love my watch I got for my b-day!
Cute new phone cover from my b-day!
Kaylee eating sour patch kids-That's my girl!
Vera and I share a birthday month. Deals all around!
How we spent our Friday afternoon. Super fun backyard time!

What are you up to currently?

What I'm Loving Wednesday!

I'm Loving my new school so far. Learning a new environment, people, and just how things are run is hard but I am adjusting very well!

I'm Loving sweet Kaylee's expression when I come home through the back door since I live THAT close to work now. I can tell she is so excited to see her mama :)

I'm Loving that Kaylee is loving her new babysitter. Two successful days down, lots to go! Babysitter #2 comes tomorrow :)

Of course, I'm Loving the Olympics as I said the other day. So fun to watch, but it is making me go to bed later which is bad now that work as begun.

I'm Loving that today is my 27th birthday and my fabulous new grade level and I celebrated with delicious cupcakes, plus I'm heading out for sushi in a little bit with Mary Beth, family swim and dinner party Saturday, and breakfast with the in-laws Sunday!

Share your Loves on this fabulous first day of August!
