Five for Friday {Linky Party.. June 20th}

Five for Friday is a weekly teacher linky party where you post five random things from today or this past week and on your blog. Then, you come back and link your blog post up at the bottom of this post in the linky tool.Grab the button above and link back to this post on your blog.


Last week I told you I had been introduced and was hooked on the game Two Dots. I have made my way to Level  59.


Then Tammy was nice enough to support my game addition and tell me about 2048. Go ahead and download it too.. you can kill me later! 


One of my firsties has a birthday the end of next week and I will be gone to the beach.. so I am preparing his birthday good mail package a tad bit early. I will be mailing this to him for a little special surprise.

Speaking of the beach.. I am leaving early on the morning to spend a little time in the sun. I picked up a few books to read and enjoy while I am on vacation. After I got home I believe that I have actually already read Barefoot by Elin Hilderbrand. Oh well.. I might just reread it.


And, when I am not reading I will be working on cutting this HUGE stack of laminating. YIKES! No worries.. I am taking scissors for everyone.

And, while I am at the beach I am having a BEACH SALE on my stationery website. 20+ BRAND NEW products have been added to the site and are on sale while I am hanging out on the beach. It’s a great time to stock up on some sweet gifts! Starts today and ends on June 30th.

Link up your Five for Friday post below! Happy Weekend!


  1. Well, I just need to say thanks for telling me about the newest TIME waster in your previous post :) I too am now hooked on Two Dots! I told myself it was only for the plane... yea, right. I am not EVEN going to check out 2048... nope, not going to do it... and you reminded me that I think I have a Elin Hilderbrand book in my stack somewhere. Thank goodness for summer. And thank goodness for Five for Friday giving us the chance to connect. Thanks.

  2. Thanks for sharing the Two Dots game--never heard of it before! Also, I wish you the best in finishing the cutting of your laminated items--that is what I like to do when watching my favorite shows (mindless work). :0) Thanks for the opportunity to link up!


  3. Have fun at the beach friend!

  6. I am so jealous, I can not get past level 35 on Two Dots!

  7. I am sooo addicted to 2048 especially since my daughter got a 2048! I can't let her beat me....

  8. Oh wow! I am in love with the idea of sending a birthday present to your kiddos over the summer. WHY have I never thought of that?! It makes it extra special for them! Can I say I'm totally jealous of you going to the beach? My husband isn't big on the beach so we don't normally go anywhere near it. Lucky you! I'm off to check out those beautiful new notepads you showed! Have a great vacation :)

  16. Oh, I LOVE LOVE LOVE Elin Hildebrand!!
    And I take scissors for people to cut my laminate, too! :)

  17. I have to check out that game now! I haven't read those books out either! I love your blog!
