Five For Friday

Yeah! My first linky party with Doodle Bugs Teaching!  I am a day late but better late than never! 

I spent 2 fantastic days visiting my boyfriend, Greg's family in Michigan.  It was a little chilly at night but otherwise the weather was perfect - even for us Texans!  We celebrated his grandpa's 80th birthday and then spent time at Lake Michigan - Pronto Pup time (world's best corn dogs)! It was a short but memorable trip!


I got my blog up and running! Thank goodness for blog tutorials, a free template from Design by Dani and my first student teacher and now great friend Stacia (she just started a new blog too - go check her out at Stacia's Scoop!).

Target Dollar Spot put out their teacher/back to school stuff!  Whoop!  I'm like a kid in a candy store when that stuff pops up. I will be sharing my findings and what I plan to do with them in my Target Dollar Spot Finds posts!

I finally went and got a pedicure!  There are fewer things more relaxing than foot massages!  I got my standard - french manicure.  Can't got wrong - it matches everything and I can wait awhile till my next one since there is no color polish!  I also get in trouble most of the time by the nail salon - I cut my toenails short so the pedicure will last longer, but they always say "too short!"

I got an origami owl necklace last year and I finally ordered a new set of charms to change the locket. I went with a turquoise ocean/beach theme and the package arrived this week.  LOVE it!  The little flip flops are my favorite!  A little bling to sparkle it up and it is perfection!

I also started an origami locket for Greg's mom with all her favorite things!

Thanks for stopping by and listening to my week!
