Five for Friday... I mean Saturday


So, once again I am going to be a day behind in my blogging :)  I think I may need to just start a weekly Saturday link up since I'm always around 12 hours late to the cute one on Doodle Bugs Teaching.  Of course, if I did that I'd probably do 90% of the Saturday posts on Sunday :)

There seems to be only two places I get to on time - work and church.  Everywhere else is hit or miss.  According to my hubby, if I say I'm going to be home by 4:30, then he starts getting ready at 4:30 because typically I am 15 to 45 minutes later than my original time.  I have some major timing issues ya'll!

Anyway, even though I'm late, I am still going to link up to Doodle Bugs Teaching because it is way to cute to pass up.

Here are my 5 random facts for this week.

Random Fact #1:
I finished!  I finished!  I worked ALL day yesterday on creating my newest packet.  ALL day as in I finished at 1:30 in the morning.  Do any of you guys ever do that?  I'm down to four sheets left, my hubby is snoring, and I sitting here thinking, "I have to be the Little Engine that Could."

Anyway, it's a set of St. Patrick's Day printables.  If you like all of my freebies, you will LOVE this packet.  Some of them are similar to the sheets I've had on here and some of them are completely different.  They can easily be used for morning work, homework, review, or assessments.  Oh, and these two sheets are freebies in my preview section.  Just click on them and it will take you straight to where you can download them.


Here are pictures of the rest of the packet.  If you like what you see, you can click on any of the pictures and it will take you to my TPT store.






Random Fact #2:
Have you ever seen a small Chihuahua try to bury something on a bed?  It might be the funniest thing in the world.  I gave my Bella a dog biscuit to eat since she's been hanging out with me in my focus zone - my bed.  Well, she took it and started trying to push the sheet over it.  However, you can't exactly push the bottom sheet over anything, so it was pretty funny.  Here's a picture of Bella sitting with my focus snacks yesterday :)  I can get anything accomplished with a Coke and a few snacks :)  and I wonder why my jeans have tightened up a little.

Random Fact #3:
Second Grade NestThis is the blog for one of my favorite people right now.  Jessica's blog is cute and has some great ideas.  I think the part that amazes me the most is she actually designs it herself.  She's also become a pretty good friend.  In the TPT world, it's rare to know someone that actually does this and I've been blessed with two, Jessica being one of them.  I'll tell you about the other one tomorrow.  She constantly cracks me up with her comments and the links and pictures she sends.  In the last two months, I'd also say she's one of my top five encouragers.

Anyway, Jessica and I have been switching a lot of our items for the last month or two and I have to tell you, her new spring packets are awesome.  I can honestly say I've never seen a packet that really does stretch from K-2, but hers does.  I checked two of them yesterday and immediately asked if I could use them.  Oh, the best part about this random fact is she has NO idea that I'm blogging about her right now which I find hilarious because we are talking on FB :)

Random Fact #4:
When I create, I have this habit of picking a television show and listening to it.  I rarely watch.  I just listen.  Back during the summer, I went through ALL of the Gossip Girl episodes and Cosby Show episodes.  This week, I've managed to go through all of the Scandal episodes.  The funny part about Scandal is it has new episodes even now, so I started on Netflix and had to switch to Hulu Plus halfway through.  Now, I've moved onto Parenthood which I have to say is a new favorite.  It has a kid with Asperger's, so since I know kids with it, it's easy to relate to how he reacts.

Random Fact #5
I LOVE my iPad and I have certain apps I check every day, but my favorite app is Bejeweled Blitz.  Each game only lasts a minute, so you can play it as little or as much as you want.  It is the one game I play when I need to not think.  It's also a freebie, so if you click on the picture, it will take you to the Apple app store so you can grab it.

Alright, hopefully my post tomorrow is a little shorter.  The last couple have felt like the world's longest posts.  Of course, the owl hooting outside my window is probably not helping my focus :)  Hope you guys have a restful Saturday!  I'm off to create some more.
