Five for Friday!

Hello, friends! Once again, I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five For Friday!
This week was a crazy one, and most of it wasn't school related!!
Friday, I had been talking to some of my friends about joining SJT Teach Happy Membership.... And then, I caught Sheila's blab. And she asked if I was a member yet (they had a new Erin that week), and it sealed the deal for me. A great community to join, and I am learning ways to teach happy. :)
ALSO, to kick off our new Collaborative blog, The Primary Punchbowl, my girls and I have been hosting a freebie blog hop, and are giving away GORGEOUS Kendra Scott earrings, a teacher basket, and TPT gift cards (there's one at EVERY blog)!!! Hurry on over, if you haven't yet! You have 2 more days!!
Sunday was a rough day. I wasn't feeling well, I was exhausted, and I hadn't even done anything... And then, THIS happened! Sheila lifted my spirits, my collaborative girls were excited for me, AND my girl/blog designer Lindsey from Miss Johnston's Journey found me on the TPT homepage. Things happen sometimes when you just NEED them to. :) 

My Secret Pal lifted my day also with some pretty fall colored flowers!! 

We had family dinner last night, and my sister-in-law even made my low-carb-eating parents and (new member of Weight Watchers) me some dinner that worked with our diets... I just got my book orders yesterday, and, since I had ordered my own books, my nephew was excited to get some Paw Patrol stickers that I got free with the order!! He is going to be Chase for Halloween, and couldn't wait to show off his costume.  He kept wagging his costume's tail! He is so funny! I think the baby is going to be a monkey. :)

I hope you have a great weekend! I will be back with more SCHOOL related posts this week about morning messages, and will be doing my first post for The Primary Punchbowl this week!! Stay tuned for my list of Pumpkin book favorites, AND ELA activities to go along with them!
