5 for Friday

Hi everyone!  I hope you are having a fantastic holiday week!  I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for another 5 for Friday today!  Here we go:

It's almost time to bust out the little Elf on a Shelf!  It's always a hit in the classroom!  I really don't mind moving an elf around the room if it means keeping my sanity those 3 weeks in December.  To assist with the "Elf-capades," I use everything in my "Let Me Take an Elfie" pack!  I always begin with the letter included and the name-voting ballots.  After we've chosen a name, I introduce the elf journals and we write a little each day.  This cute little pack is all I need to use with my classroom elf!  Check it out below.  *To see more of my Christmas resources, click HERE.

I may or may not have spent Thanksgiving week in Florida!  Mr. Wheeler and I went down with my brother, his wife, my niece, and my parents.  It was a great week!  The time definitely flew by, per usual!  I spent the trip eating, playing with my cutie niece, sight-seeing, relaxing, shopping, eating, swimming, and eating.  Get me to the gym as soon as possible!

You might have seen me post about Ibotta here or on my Facebook fan page.  I love saving money and sharing my thrifty knowledge with others!  I recently discovered Ebates, which is pretty amazing. It's another free app/website!  Yay!  You just shop through the app/website {there are TONS of stores on it...pretty much any store you can think of} and get cash back.  Each quarter, you will receive a check.  Yes.  A check.  Cash money.  Oh, and for the first purchase you make, you get $10.00 in your account to start you off.  You can sign up using this link here.  You will love it!!!

I did a little Black Friday shopping online last night.  I ended up getting a lot from Ulta {love that store!} and Vera Bradley {a gift for my mom's birthday}.  From Ulta, I got some new Bare Minerals makeup, Soap and Glory hand lotion, some body cream, and a few other goodies!  I am excited for my package to arrive...there were a lot of gifts with purchase and free samples!

Every year since I can remember, my mom and I have broken the wishbone in the turkey.  This year was no exception!  I got the bigger half and made my wish!

Happy Black Friday!  Don't spend too much!  Keep your eyes peeled for a TpT sale soon!
