Five for Friday {on Sunday}

The first week back, an almost-four-month-old who has decided 8 hours of sleep at night is plenty, a batch of bachelorette cookies, a bachelorette party, a late night, and a very early morning are just a few reasons why I'm tardy for this party...

But hey, better late than never!


My fancy Saturday night was spent organizing bulletin board letters into an old cd case. I needed a reason to re-purpose the case--there were cds in there I forgot I had!


Mr. Lovie's aunt and uncle invited us down to their house for dinner Sunday night--Uncle Mark was cooking in his new smoker. Boy was it delicious! Tried a Lime-a-Rita with dinner--I'll likely stick with my simple-but-classy Budlight longneck but I'm glad I tried it!


I finally tackled a marker and crayon organizer first seen on Creekside Teacher Tales. Click on the first image below to go to the directions and printable.

Wednesday marked the first day back for kiddos. Is there a sweeter way to start the year than with a note like this?

I don't think so.


I love any reason or excuse to gift or craft. If I can do both--even better! Here are two back-to-school goodies for some of the fabulous teachers and paraprofessionals I work with.

And here's how we're all feeling as we get back into the swing of things...
