Five for Friday already?

Gosh, when I'm in school it seems like forever until the next Friday, but now that I'm on summer break it seems like I JUST did a Five for Friday post!  Summer--slow down!


As I said, I'm out of school, so there won't be much "educational value" to this Five for Friday! 

My cousin got married.  We had a fabulous time at the wedding and I LOVED my new dress.  Aren't we cute? 
And just because I want to show off my beautiful family--here are two bonus pictures!
I know we kind of have glow eyes, but I still love the picture.  That's my youngest cousin in the middle and my daughter.

And here's more ornery-ness than should be allowed in one room together.  That's the bride's son and my son.  Very good buddies and now they are so excited that they are "cousins!"

Hubby and I have been faithfully working out every day this week so far!  Yep--4 days in a row.  That's an accomplishment for us!  We don't live near a gym or anything so we like to head to our basement and pop in a DVD.  We really like these 10 minute trainer DVDs.  I talked more about them the other day.  You can read that  HERE.

We took both kids to 4H camp yesterday.  Yes, both kids are at camp until Monday. Getting them both packed for 4 days turned my living room into a mountain of clothes! I'm not quite sure what to do with myself with both of them gone! I'm not sure this has ever happened since my daughter was born 12 years ago!  Of course, I'm blogging, reading and creating! 
I've become a total Instagram addict!  I love seeing everyone's pictures.  If you haven't checked it out yet, you really should.  It's very fun.  You can find me at @alwaysanadventureink

I'm working on new products for my classroom with a matching color scheme.  I kind of have a rock star theme going on.  Nothing over the top, but I like the blacks and bold neon colors with a little zebra print thrown in!  I found digital paper from Ashley Hughes that matches my colors perfectly and I'm working on re-doing everything with that background.  First up was my word wall.  I just finished these up this morning.  I love the way they turned out.  You can find them here in my TpT store.  Best part?  They are editable so you can add your own words to them!
And here's a little added bonus on this fabulous Friday!  Sara at Primary Buzz is hosting her 100 followers giveaway.  People, it's HUGE!  Head over there and check it out!

  5. Lisa,
    I knew the minute I read "already" in your title that you were on vacation- cause this week was f o r e v e r in school! :) Love your pictures and your dress. SO proud of you for the workouts. That is my goal... once summer starts for me. I think I need it because when I read "editable" word wall cards- I read it as "edible" word wall cards. HA! Guess I'm hungry!
