Five For Friday - Summer Vacation Edition!

Aaaaaand we're back for another Five for Friday, hosted by the lovely Doodle Bugs Teaching!

 I've been doing a whole lot of this since I got out of school last Tuesday! I finished packing up my room for the summer pretty quickly and I'm putting in some SERIOUS work on my tan! :o) As long as I've got my beach, a good book and a cold drink in my hand, I'm a happy, happy teacher!!

In preparation for tonight (more on that later) and the upcoming celebration of our great nation, I game myself a festive pedicure! I'm notoriously bad at painting my nails (as you can see on my red and white toe) but this one didn't come out too badly!! The little toes are sparkly too!

I headed into the Big Lots next to my gym before Zumba this week, and saw them prepping the back-to-school storage display! Not yet!! I have to keep an eye out though, because I need more book bins and I found great ones at Big Lots last year, in that perfect aqua and lime :o)

On Saturday I headed to a baseball game to see some of my kiddos play in their championship game! It was a great game, and they won!! The looks on their faces were priceless! 

As you read this I am probably on my way up to Fenway park to see ZAC BROWN BAND!! I'm SO excited!!! I've wanted to see them for a LONG time and I missed them when they came to CT last year. My friends and I are making a night of it and staying up in Boston! I'm so pumped!!

What are YOU up to this weekend?


  1. I want to see Zac Brown SO BADLY. He came to Charlotte a few weeks ago... on the same night that I was in a wedding. :( Have fun!!!

    Let me know what you think of Dark Places. I just finished Sharp Objects and I think it was the most disturbing book I have ever read - LOL. I'll read Dark Places next if it's good! I enjoyed Gone Girl as well.

    My Carolina Classroom

    1. Kristin, he was AMAZING!! He played a three hour show, including an acoustic set, AND the Doobie Brothers made a guest appearance!! If you get the chance you have to go see him!! :o)

  2. I'm pretty sure we're the same person ;) I've been spending my summer at the beach, have already taken a trip to Big Lots, have loved watching the World Cup, AND love ZBB!!! I've seen them a few times, they were just in Tampa a few weeks ago. They play a weekend festival in Charleston every Fall, they headline for two nights, it's a blast!! Hope you had fun!! :)
