Five For Friday! (or Saturday!!)

Hello! I know, I know, it is definitely Saturday but it just wasn't going to happen on Friday! I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for her Five for Friday linky party!

So if you've read some of my other posts, you'll know that my hubs (Corbin, aka Corb, Corby, Corbster, Corby-cuteness) and I have been remodeling our house. Long story short, it was a 1970's hot mess! It's been so much fun!  I know that I am a very lucky girl. Corbster is able to do anything! He just figures it all out and everything comes out so nice. I like picking out all the pretty things :)
Well, I'm doing my first project. Yep, that means all by myself! We have this U.G.L.Y. kitchen table, but it's solid wood and I thought "I can re-do this!!". I mean surely I've watched enough DIY shows (my fave right now is Fixer Upper! I just looove Chip and Joanna!) So this is what I've been up to this week. Lots and lots of sanding, and priming. Hoping to get it painted early next week!

I just started my professional reading for the summer, CHAMPS. We will read it through the school year and have a course on it, but I like to get ahead of the game and start implementing new ideas at the beginning of the school year. I've been told that one of my strengths is classroom management, but I am super excited to learn more and implement some new things into my classroom. Our school is a PBIS school and has been developing management plans for those loose structured environments like hallways and recess. Has anyone read this already? I've been told "it's the best".

Let me tell you, we got a TON of rain this week. And it all came at once.....

In order to get through the week, I have to plan our meals. This is just what I use to display our meals for Corb. He likes to see what's for supper for the week :) Plus this helps with my spending at the grocery!

We're heading up to Cleveland to see our dear friends this weekend! They got married last October and just bought their first home. We looove this couple and are so excited to spend the weekend with them! :) 
Have a fabulous weekend!


  1. The table looks like it is coming along nicely. I always feel so frustrated because the prep work often takes longer than the actual paint it self, but it is worth it in the end. I love your menu frame. I need to do something like that. My boys text me all the time "what's for dinner" guess that would solve that problem. Have fun on your visit this weekend!

    Luv My Kinders

    1. You are absolutely right! I'm finally getting the last coat on!

  2. I read the CHAMPS book during my certification and it most certainly is "the best"!
    Personally, I feel that my classroom management is my biggest strength and I contribute it to this book!
    I look forward to hearing your take on it! :)


    1. Yay! I'm excited to see what I can use! Thanks for stopping by! :)

  3. I love the menu frame! I usually waste hundreds of post it notes throughout the week planning and making shopping lists ha! I'll have to try this!

    Happy Monday!

  4. Thanks Sarah! I got the frame on sale at Hobby Lobby for like $11, and as much as I hate making the shopping list it really helps me save at the store. Otherwise, I just grab everything in sight!!
