Five for Friday {on a Saturday :)}

Happy Friday Saturday!

I missed out on the last Five for Friday, so I had to get in on this one, even if it’s a day late!


1} We celebrated our 100th Day on Tuesday!  We had a blast dressing up like our 100 year old selves.  This picture is actually very realistic, Jenna will definitely be rocking the leopard and pearls as an old lady, and my love for cardigans isn’t going away anytime soon!

100th day

2} We made a day of 100th day!  All afternoon the kids rotated from center to center.  The cup stacking center was the definite favorite, followed by the pattern block station.  I’ve had a lot of fun reading what a second grader thinks life as a 100 year old will be like!  We ended the day with 100 Day snack mix!  Fun, but exhausting!


3} My husband surprised me with a night in the city for Valentine’s Day.  We stayed at the Sofitel.  And can I just say, their beds are perfection.  I would’ve been perfectly content to lay in their bed ALL DAY today!  We had fun bar hopping, and ate a delicious dinner at a restaurant called Twenty Manning.  It was a perfect way to spend our first married Valentine’s Day :) Love him!

Spring Comprehension Sheets

4} I’m thisclose to finishing this puppy up!  Honestly, these comprehension sheets have been so good to my students as far as improving their comprehension skills.  They’re getting so good at going back into the text to answer questions, they’re restating skills are improving as well.  Thank you so much to all of you who have purchased the Winter Edition, I promise the Spring Edition will be posted by the end of the long weekend! Yay!

Jalapeno, Bacon and Onion Jam by SimplyGourmet

5} On the very first day of our honeymoon, Dave and I ate at The Pacific Blues Café in Yountville {Napa Valley}.  We had the best burger there that came with this yummy jalapeño jam.  No kidding, I have been craving it off and on ever since.  I finally found a recipe for jalapeño, onion, and bacon jam that I think is worth trying…so that’s the plan for tonight.  Or maybe this afternoon…I’m starving!

That’s it!  Go link up with Doodlebugs so I have something to read this afternoon!


Have a great weekend!
