5 for Friday

School is out!  On the last day, I have my kids leave me notes on the board.  I promise them that I won't read them until after they've left.  I always tear up reading them!

So school actually ended for me on May 26.  I rushed to clean/pack up my room because my father in law had been in ICU in California for a week and we were called out.  Without going into too much detail, he has two different types of blood cancer and wasn't doing well at all.  I left May 27 at 6:00 a.m. and flew to California to see him.  He is doing a little better now, thank goodness.  I got home this past Tuesday and have been catching up on sleep since.  Sitting in a hospital waiting room is exhausting.  I still don't feel like my "break" has officially started yet.  There's been too much going on!

While in California, towards the end of our trip {when my father in law was feeling better}, me, my hubby, and mother in law went to dinner on the beach.  It's a place we've been before and is so yummy.  And the view isn't too shabby, either!  LOL!

Here's something fun that happened in California--I spotted Jason {The Hills, anyone} and his beautiful wife in a beauty store that I was shopping in on our last day there!!!!!  I didn't say anything to him, even though he was like 3 feet from me.  I chickened out!

I've shared before that I am a Stella and Dot stylist.  I became on in January because I love their accessories {all accessories, really!}.  Right now, we have a great promo going on.  When you spend $50, you earn a $25 "Dot Dollar" coupon, which is good for use later in June.  You can earn Dot Dollars now through June 13 and begin redeeming them starting on June 17.  Below are a few of my latest obsessions!

Summer bracelets.  Lots of them!  *The colorful "bracelet" you see below is actually a necklace that can double as a bracelet!

Engravables.  Below is a gift I made for a teacher friend as a thank you.  We have all sorts of engravable pieces.  You can customize them however you'd like!

Below is our newest engravable style of necklace.  

These two necklaces.  Pure heaven.

In an effort to keep up with housework this summer, I created a "Weekly Cleaning Schedule."  This hangs on my fridge and helps me stay on track.  A little each day isn't as overwhelming as doing it all at once.  I plan on sticking to this once the school year begins again, too.  For a free copy of this, click the picture below.

I like the weekly cleaning schedule idea! I'm horrible at cleaning and that seems like a good strategy!
I'm sorry to hear about your father-in-law...I hope he is feeling better and conquers the cancer! Prayers headed your way!

I hope your father-in-law continues to improve. Your cleaning schedule is awesome. I hope that you are able to keep it up.

Your cleaning schedule is such a good idea - during the summer we need to relax and not spend all of our time cleaning. Enjoy your summer!
