Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, friends!!!  Somehow this week has FLOWN by despite it being a pretty "regular" week around here.  Everyone is healthy (PRAISE HANDS!) and trucking along at school and activities so there's nothing super exciting to report.  

That said, I still have some FAVORITES from the week and  Erika, Narci and I are so excited thay lots of y'all are linking up with us.  If you're linking up with us make sure you grab our graphic, link back to one (or all!) of us and share your own Friday Favorites post.

Valentines Printables

My Valentine printable post is one of my most viewed and most requested posts every year and I love that the post just continues to grow!

When I design printables I create them in a 4x6 format that you can right click, save to your desktop, upload to a photo printing service (I use Walgreens) then fold in half and staple to the top of a  cellophane bag with a treat inside or directly to the top of a snack (you can find the cellophane bags that I like  HERE or pick them up at Hobby Lobby).  The kids write their names (and the names of their classmates if the teacher prefers that) on the cards with Sharpie and we're done! 

It's the norm at our school to do little "favor bags" instead of just a card or candy.  Any of the ideas that I share today would totally work as a card if attaching a little favor isn't what your family or school does!

I thought that this little rainbow clipart was the CUTEST and this card would be so sweet attached to a bag of skittles, jelly beans, etc.

Crock Pot Hashbrown Breakfast Casserole

 I signed up to bring a breakfast casserole for a "brunch for lunch" teacher appreciation luncheon and as soon as I hit submit I had the "uh oh" moment of how am I going to bake a casserole in the morning, bring it to school with me and then keep it warm until lunch.  I figured the easiest way would be to use my crock pot and decided to try out  this recipe for dinner the next night to make sure it was a winner before making it for the elementary teachers.

Cue everyone in my family LOVING the recipe and eating it multiple mornings in a row and asking me to make it again as soon as it was gone.  It couldn't have been quicker, is SO GOOD and is a great recipe to have on hand when you're needing to feed people first thing in the morning.

Weekend Top 10

Happy Monday, friends!  Here are my top 10 scenes from the weekend...

Friday afternoon I was able to head out of school early (no staff meeting - woohoo!!!!) and I grabbed the kids, booked it home and we snuggled up on the couch with movies and snacks for the afternoon/evening.  We had some pretty crazy storms so it was nice to be all tucked in together at home.

Scribble Stones

  Earlier this month I picked up the book  Scribble Stones (we have and love the original Scribbles book) and it's become a fast favorite at our house.  The book is SO CUTE and tells the story of a little stone who thinks he'll become something amazing, ends up as a paperweight, and then meets Scribble and Splatter and they find a way to bring joy to thousands of people.

Almost immediately the kids immediately asked to make their own stones so we went on a rock hunt and got to work.

Reading and Listening

Happy Wednesday, friends!!!  Today I thought it would be fun to round up some of the things I've been reading and listening to and LOVING.  When it comes to podcasts I definitely have a type and it's true crime.

A reader recommended Bardstown and I LOVED IT!!!
It tells the story of three unsolved murders in the same Kentucky town and I thought it was really well done.

San Antonio Trip

Last weekend we decided to head down to San Antonio pretty much to see the Riverwalk lit up for Christmas.  When we were there over Spring Break we kept hearing about how pretty it was at Christmas and so we squeezed in a quick trip down there to see for ourselves.

We left around 7 a.m. and made it to Austin around lunch.  We grabbed a quick bite to eat and then stopped at The Thinkery.  We'd never been there before but from perusing the website it looked right up our alley and it totally was!

Weekend Recap

Well, y'all.  I'm back at school today and I still can't believe that break is over!  We made the most of the past weekend and here's how...

Slow mornings are one of the very best parts of being off.  I'm going to miss enjoying my toast and tea on the couch!  You better believe I enjoyed my last few slow mornings this weekend :)

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, friends!!! I can't believe that Christmas Break is almost over!  It's been the perfect mix of on-the-go and nothing days at home and we're rested and organized and refreshed. 

I'm hosting Friday Favorites today, but Narci and Erika will be back with me next week and we have a fresh new graphic for 2020!
