Five for Friday, February Currently and a Sale!

I love Friday, because well it's Friday!  And because I get to link up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for her Five for Friday.  Even better is that it's also time for Oh' Farley's February Currently.  Seriously, both on the same day?  Loooooove!

1.  Last Sunday, I went to Whole Foods to pick up a quick dinner.  After I got there, I realized my "slippers" (what Hawaiians call flip flops) were 2 different shoes.  :/

2.  One day this week, I walked by my 7-year-olds room and saw this......her staring at herself in the mirror for an EXTENDED period of time.  Seriously, she didn't even know I was there while I took the pic and watched her.  I'm beginning to be concerned about her teenage years.

3.  One of our chrysalis finally turned into a butterfly!  We got to release this one on Wednesday.  I have more chrysalis left.  I hope the rest of them turn.  I have 2 possibles for the weekend.

4.  This is my crazy Great Dane, Harley, in her stand-off with a HUGE snail.  This was as close as she would get to the snail but was having a fit.  I do believe the snail won the round since Harley was terrified.

5.  These AWESOME social story books by Julia Cook came this week.  I read about them on The Lower Elementary Cottage's blog and knew I had to have them.  We already read The Worst Day of my Life EVER!  I seriously love them!!  They go along perfectly with the rules and skills I'm trying to teach all day.

Now onto the February Currently.  I so look forward to them every month!  I love reading what others put on their Currently's.

Is anyone else as exhausted as I am?  By Friday evening, I don't want to do ANYTHING.  But somebody really needs to do some laundry around here.  I guess that someone is me but I just don't wanna!  

Let's talk about pet peeves.  One thing that drives me BONKERS is when kids put their arms in their sleeves and/or stick their knees in their shirts.  Does this drive anyone else crazy?  I feel like the this pet peeve may not even be rational, but it is soooooo annoying to me!

I'm also excited to announce that on Sunday my TpT store will be 20% off all day.  If you use the code SUPER, TpT will give you another 10% off for a total of 28% off!  I'm really excited about this big sale, because that means I can stock up on a ton of things on my wishlist.  Shhhh....don't tell my husband but I have over 100 things on that list.

Thanks to Ashley Hughes for this adorable graphic.


  1. Angelia - first, I've done the flip flop mistake all too many times! I've gotten to the point where I don't care as long as I've got something on my feet LOL

    Sorry you seemed to have a tough week this week - I hope that next week goes better. I hope you get to catch up on some sleep this weekend, too! Give yourself a mini break and sleeeeep all day long until you can't sleep anymore! Have a good weekend!!

    1. Sara - I laughed so hard I cried and then went through a drive through! I do hope to get some sleep this weekend and relax. I hope it works out that way!

  2. Rest always makes things better. Blessings and good thoughts your way.

    1. Yes, a good night sleep without a 5am alarm will make things better! Thank you!


  3. The flip flop mistake was hilarious and done many times in this household! Love the books, I may need them for my own child :) I've noticed almost every Currently post I have read mentions needing to do laundry. I personally loathe this chore!

    Your newest follower,

    1. I actually brought the books home to read to my own children this weekend! LOL!


  4. That is a completely rational pet peeve! I always get after my kids, too on that one! I use the "And what happens when this building catches on fire?" line and they quickly stick their hands back through their sleeves. Maybe its a little too harsh... :-D but realistic. We had a little girl break her nose last year because her knees were stuffed into her shirt while sitting in her chair.

    1. I haven't even thought about that issue. You gave me more ammo to fuel my pet peeve! :)


  5. Happy Aloha Friday!! Sorry you had such a rough week!! The beach always makes things better :)) My daughter is 8 and is always in the bathroom staring at herself, changes her outfits about 5 times a day, and the other morning told me I should change my shirt because she didn't like it!! I am nervous about the teen years! Hope the laundry gets done by someone else and you are able to rejuvenate.

    1. Aloha! I keep telling my husband I'm moving out in 6 years when she hits 13! The beach is def on my plan for this weekend!


  6. I must say that I am always jealous of your pictures. It looks gorgeous there and when I look out my window all I see is snow and more snow. I'm glad that groundhog didn't see his shadow, because I am ready for spring!
    I am totally with you on that pet peeve. It bothers me too when kids put their arms in their sleeves. I just know they are stretching their shirts out (or at least that's what my dad always told me growing up)!
    And good luck with your daughter. My daughter is 10 going on 18...attitude and clothing obsession to match! There are days I'm ready to move out, too!

    Have a great weekend!

  7. I hate it when they put their arms in their shirts!! I'm not sure why, I just figured it was a control thing. I'm glad to hear that someone else hates this as well!!

  8. OMG, I hate when the kids put their arms in their shirts! My 3rd graders constantly do it and it drives me crazy! However, I'm happy it's not just me! lol

    I'm really jealous that you're wearing flip flops right now.. I really hate the cold. Maybe I should move to Hawaii.. (a girl can dream!) I also want those books! They look great!

  9. I also had a rough week. I don't know what it is but it seems that everyone had one this week. I am also excited about the sale because I get to stock up with things on my wishlist. Can't wait!

  11. I hope you get a little time to rest this weekend!

    I had to tell you that the Great Dane photo made me laugh so hard that my husband came over to see what I was looking at. So adorable! Poor doggy!

  12. I hear you on the pet peaves and raise you with CHEWING on their shirts or anything else on their person. Yuck! Glad the week is over too! :)

  13. Those books look simply fabulous and love that they teach such important skills that so many children are lacking nowadays.
    OMG-we got a new lil friend in January and he cannot wear his clothing to save his life!!! Constantly reminding him to wear his clothes correctly!!!
    Hope this week went better for you!
