Welcome to Five on Friday Week 9!

  1. I am still super happy and flabbergasted by the outpouring of support and donations we have received to help those in need.  I will be posting the numbers of what was collected and where it goes next week. Below are a few pictures of the stage at my school. I can not say thank you enough to everyone who has helped promote, gather, and sort all of the items! 
  2. One of my dear friends and co-workers got me a Teacher Box from Penzeys. I wouldn’t have bought one for myself, but I thought they were super cool. I love the pins, the bumper sticker, and the book! They are now decorating the handle of my teacher work bag and the bumper sticker is on my computer. Thank you Beth! 
  3. I’ve discovered Penzeys Pumpkin Spice this week. I used it on top of Dave’s Killer ‘Raisin’ the Roof’ Bread that I had toasted and spread with cream cheese. I’m now addicted! The Pumpkin Spice is delicious and has a hint of vanilla,. It makes this breakfast bread even more special. I put my toasted raisin bread, cream cheese, pumpkins spice breakfast in my environmentally friendly Lunch skins. Also, If you haven’t tried Dave’s Killer Bread you need to! They are a wonderful company, doing wonderful things, and they have a wonderful product!

    I used organic low-fat cream cheese to add a bit of creaminess and extra protein.

    Lunchskins are awesome! They come in all sizes and have lots of fun patterns.

  4. I have been waiting impatiently for my DNA results to come back from Family Tree DNA. They finally came back last night and revealed some surprises. I can’t wait to do some research this weekend! I can’t wait to further explore my families history.
  5. I am so happy that Tijuana Flats is close to my house and offers a teacher discount on top of their weekly deals. After this very busy week, I’m beat and too tired to cook. They made my night a lot easier! Mr. Teacher and I both had a big beef burrito with black beans, guacamole, queso, chips, and an assortment of hot sauce for the grand total of $17. Sometimes you just need take-out.

Remember it’s the little things that count! Have a wonderful weekend and don’t forget to share your top 5 below. Also don’t forget to sign up for weekly emails!

Happy Friday!

    We’ve had a primary school teacher’s strike here in The Netherlands yesterday since they don’t get payed as much as a high school teachers. I have to say that I think being a teacher is the hardest most important job on Earth. You are the ones shaping the future generation. You are doing an amazing job! Keep it up 🙂

    • That’s awful! I hope they solve it quickly. Thank you for your kind words.

    I’ve been wanting to do one of those DNA tests! It would be so cool to see the results, and it’s awesome that you got it done. Happy researching 🙂
