Five for Friday: Summertime Halle

Good Morning! I am so happy to finally have some free time to link up with Doodle Bugs. I love this linky, but I was D-R-A-G-G-I-N-G those last few weeks of school and couldn’t muster the energy to link up.  Well Summertime Halle is here and in full effect!!  

Summertime Halle loves linkies!


Boy, my first full week of summer has been hard.


1} I hung out by my dad’s pool and tried to tan these pasty legs of mine. 



2} I took this girl to get a hair cut. Whoa, was she lookin’ scruffy or what? Do you have a dog that gets really scruffy then really, really small after he/she gets their haircut? I honestly feel like I own two different dogs: Scruffy Georgie is pretty lazy {she has a lot of fur to carry around} and so super adorable!  Tiny Georgie {or Georgie II as we refer to her} has a lot more spunk, but I carry her around a lot more because I feel like she’s a delicate little baby.  In between Georgie gets the best of both worlds!  That lucky girl!

Due to the outrageous humidity, I perfected my sock bun.  Read about how I do it here, then link up!


I actually stepped away from the pool and bobby pins long enough to upload this fun activity to TpT! Check it out here.

I let all my Facebook followers know how much they mean to me by starting my “Summer of Fun” on Facebook.  If you haven’t “liked” me yet {and why haven’t you ;)}, you’ve missed out on one flash sale and a giveaway, but there’s still time to get my “Facebook Fan Freebie”!!!!

“Like” me on Facebook here.  I also talk about it on Instagram.  Does that make me narcissistic? I sure hope not!  Follow me on Instagram too {halleacrossthehall}.

And those are my 5 random things from this week!  Don’t forget to link up with Doodle Bugs.  Then if you’d like, come link up with me for my Favorite Things Linky :)



  1. Looks like you're having a pretty good beginning of summer so far!! I am obsessed with your cute little sock bun! Unfortunately I did something absolutely crazy and cut 9 inches of hair off last December.. I am completely regretting that decision now and want my long hair back! I can't say I can related to Scruffy Georgie -- my dog, Gracie, has really short hair and she's lucky if it even gets brushed! What can I say? I need a low maintenance dog!

    That's So Second Grade!

  2. Ok, I am going to have to try these sock buns- Who would have known?? Your Back to School Walk About is awesome! I can't wait to use it with my kiddos. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Halle your blog made me smile :) I love the picture of your dog and of you by the pool (although I'm a little envious of the pool). Hope you are having a great summer!

  4. I wish I had a pool for the summer! Looks refreshing! Enjoy your summer!

  6. Sounds like a great way to start off the summer! I have a persian cat who has the longest hair. Every 6 month I get her shaved and she comes back looking like a skinny little lion. It is too funny! Enjoy your time off!

  7. Halle! That puppy is precious!!! Your bun looks great and so does that pool!
    Have a great weekend!
    Peace, Love, and First Grade

  8. I have a Chow-Chow and Spitz mix that looks like a puffy pompom when we let his hair grow but looks like a fat and slightly taller Corgi when he's sheared. It makes it incredibly funny to look at before and after pictures or having people ask whatever happened to my other dog. Haha! -Liza @ Pets on Broadway
