Five for Friday! [[Linky Party]]

I'm linking up for the first time with Doodle Bugs Teaching for her linky party! It's called Five for Friday! All you have to do is post 5 random things from today or the week! Easy peasy!

1. This girl is exhausted. It was my first full week of school, EVER. As a first year teacher, I had no idea what to expect! I'm going to sleep gooood this weekend!

2. I got my FIRST KitchenAid  Mixer last week, and boy am I in love! :) It does wonders, and makes my cookies stay soft for days. I can't wait to make more recipes in it this weekend!

3. These flowers have made my smile all day long! They are still blooming! I received them from family on the first day of school, and now over a week later they still look beautiful. I get tons of compliments on them too!!!!

4. I love my students to death. I really do. But the best classroom, is a quiet classroom (when you want to get stuff done), and today they were anything but that. They were wound for sound, which I suppose I can't blame them. It was their first full week of school, and it was a Friday...but as for today...this was the best kind of classroom. It allowed me to get all my grading done and entered, so I HAVE NO HOMEWORK THIS WEEKEND!

5. I have been thinking all day, how much I miss volleyball. It's been 5 years since I've played competitively, but I played throughout college on an intramural team..and I miss it dearly. The high school girls started practice this week, and walking by the gym at the end of the day is a debbie downer. for sure.

That's all for now, I suppose. It's been a great first week, but this chick needs some sleep. She is exhausted to the wouldn't think I would get this exhausted, but man, I could sleep for a week.

Join Doodles for Teaching linky party! It's super easy and fun! 

With love, B


  1. Thanks for your share! I am seeing my friends get started back up with band this week, and it is making me SO nostalgic. I also miss dance right now, as a coworker said yesterday: "Do you dance? [5th-12th grades!] You walk like a dancer! Very light on your feet." Well dang, I want to feel like a dancer again! See if you can find a place where there's an adult league?


  2. Glad you survived your first week (it's tough, I know...). Love the flowers - it's always nice to brighten up your room with them :)
