Five for Friday...I'm leavin' on a jet plane...

 It's that time again for Five for Friday with Doodle Bugs Teaching.  Last week I was leavin' on a plane to come to CA to see my family and tonight I'll be leavin' on the red eye to go home.  I'm super sad, but I'll be back in 21 days, so I think I'll be able to handle it.
My suitcase weighed 43 pounds.  
That never happens.
I'm always pushin' 50!
Not this time.
I win Delta, I win!

I have had so much fun this week laughin' at all of my pin fails that I attempted.
Want to laugh?  Read here and here.
I had to add one more fail and then for serious I'm done until Christmas.
This wasn't really a pin fail, but it was a definite fail.
This is what happens when you put too many marshmallows 
on the sweet potatoes.
Since I don't cook, I cannot be blamed for this fail.
It didn't stop me from stuffin' my face with this.
 I drive my family nuts wantin' to take pictures.  I think my request is valid since I only get to see them twice a year.  It ends up gettin' silly.
My mommy is such a good sport.
 Shoparoo...have you seen this?  I read about it on a Technology Tailgate link-up from Teaching isn't scripted. I quickly sent this out to my school staff, PTO, parents and added the link on FB.
In less than two weeks, my school has earned over 12,500 points from about twenty people scannin' receipts.  For every person that joins, you can earn an additional 100 points for your school.  I can't even imagine the point possibilities if everyone participated.  Whoa!
 If you have a smartphone, this is a must because everyone goes to the grocery store...even me.

I finished Christmas Decimals-Multiplication Task Cards last night.  It's a FREEBIE right now.  
Please be sure to leave some love if you think they'll work well in your room. 

Jerm and I have never tried the whole Black Friday thing before.  We have been browsin' the interwebs lookin' for deals(we don't actually need anything and couldn't even find anything to buy online just to be buyin' somethin'...shockin'...I know).  Somewhere...he saw that Target opened at 6 p.m., so we ventured out to attempt it.  They didn't actually open until 8 p.m.  We grabbed a Starbucks and then talked ourselves out of waitin' an hour and a half for the doors to open because even if we did find somethin', it would be too much of a pain to carry home on the plane.
We can cross that one off of our bucket lists.

Have a fabulous weekend everyone! 


  1. Thanks for the Shoparoo tip...I've pass it on the powers that be at school! It looks like you've had a great trip. Hope your flight home is a good one!

  2. Glad you got to spend time with your family. Wishing you safe traveling home! :)

  3. I've never done the Black Friday thing either! I do all of my shopping online these days!

    Safe travels,

  4. We opted for taking the grand kiddo out for lunch rather than brave the Black Friday crowds. We were pleasantly SHOCKED that the restaurant we chose was nearly empty. Those Black Friday shoppers are serious and apparently don't stop to eat. Thanks so much for the freebie task cards! I'm printing and laminating them as soon as I finish this glass of wine and catch up on my blog browsing. Wishing you smooth skies on your trip tonight.

  5. It looks like you had an amazing trip! I didn't brave out on Black Friday, so bravo to you! Safe travels!

  6. I am glad you were able to spend some quality time with your family. I don't think you can ever have too many marshmallows. :)
    Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
