Five for Friday January 25



I'm linking up again with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday!



1. I got to go back to my favorite activity on Monday! Turbo Kick!  I had to take a week off b/c I had the flu.  And I had a surprise when I got there: my bestie, Amy (on the right), came back.  She had taken a long time off b/c she had a baby. For those of you that aren't aware, Turbo is pretty much the shizzle!  I have been taking it for 2 years and love every second!  I am also an instructor!
This is my pal and I when we were many years younger!

2.  It's straight-up winter in Ohio.  On Tuesday we had a 2 hour delay b/c it was -20 with the wind chill or something crazy like that.


3.  Because of the cold, I decided to make chilli this week!  And what's chilli without it's partner, cornbread?


4.  I still haven't celebrated my birthday (even though it's been over for a month) so I was surprised to receive this box from my brother and sis-in-law on Thursday! We are going to try to get together next week to celebrate with my family but everyone's schedules has made it hard (and I was sick!).  Anyone that knows me knows I heart nail polish!  I can't wait to try out those smelly pens and use my chunky note pad!


5.  My kids were engulfed in my Valentine's Day centers this week!  It seems that every month, I don't plan ahead enough for the holiday that's in it, and it creeps up and at the last minute, leaving me with 900 activities to "file for next year."  I am trying to be better and am on the ball with putting out Valentine's Day activities already!

Happy weekend!  Stay warm!

Your chili looks great! We got winter-weather today, too, but living in small-town America means they cancel school every. single. time. :) Also, Smens are great! I love the Smencils and kids do, too. It's like writing with gold!

I am JEALOUS of your delay! As much as I LOVE teaching...I am NOT a morning person! I wish we could start school at 10 or 12! :) I have been hoping for a snow day too just to lounge around! The chili looks so yummy but so does the salad next to it! What is it?? Smens?? I have heard of Smencils but not SMENS!! I HAVE to get some! Thanks for sharing your Five For Friday!
