Five for Friday!

Happy Friday and first day of SUMMER everyone! It is a gorgeous, hot day today! Here's what I've been up to this week with my Five for Friday with Doodle Bugs Teaching!

1. I got to start my day off right this morning with a little Starbucks after dropping off Layla at the vet! Happy Friday to me! Yum-O! Then I go to my sister's and she gives me a donut. Breakfast of champions over here! :)

2. Layla Lou!

It's been a rough week for Miss Layla. She had to get shots this week, blood drawn, and tore a ligament in her knee the night BEFORE her appointment. So then she also needed to get an exam from the vet. Throw that on top of bad hips already, and this 6 yr. old pup hobbles around like she's 90! SO, back to the vet today for x-rays on the knee AND hips. The good news is her hips looked good for as stiff and sore as she's been getting at night, but the bad news is surgery will most likely be in her very near future to fix her knee. Poor baby! :(

3. Amazon rocks my socks off!

I was so excited when the UPS truck showed up yesterday with my favorite kind of mail- boxes from Amazon! Unfortunately, Tony got home about 10 minutes prior which made for horrible timing. He gave me a very unimpressed look when the UPS man handed him my boxes! Oh well, it's not the first time. :) 
- I ordered Teach Like a Pirate cause I couldn't STAND to see anything else about it on blogs, Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, or Twitter without seeing for myself! I hope it's as good as I hear! 
- Words Their Way- We are in search of something new and better for word study at my school. A few teachers and I are thinking of implementing Words their Way this year to try it out. I'd love to know if anybody out there uses it and what you think of it! 
- Preventing Misguided Reading happened to just JUMP in my Amazon cart when I ordered the other two. Gotta make the order worthwhile, right?! I have been looking at it in my "save for later" list for a long time. It looks like a good read and any new info. on guided reading is always helpful I think! :)

4. Nephews!
Now that it's summer I'm hoping to see these two cutie pies WAY more often! Already got to see them 3 times this week! :)

5. Classroom Deals!

Last weekend, the beautiful Mrs. Delzer and I did some shopping for our classrooms! We hit up TJ Maxx, Gordmans, Joanne's Fabrics, and Target. We are in DESPERATE need to find a Hobby Lobby next! Is it bad we are excited to get back and it's still only JUNE?! 

Have a fantastic weekend! :)

  1. Haha I recognise all your photos from Instagram! Now I'm following your blog too!

    Poor Layla- that is such a beautiful photo of her! Have you got her on supplements for her hips and knee? My aunt's dog had a lot of joint problems so took glucosamine, fish oil etc and it made quite a difference

    Hope she feels better soon
