Five for Friday! My week in PICTURES

Another week has come and gone...and that means we are even closer to FALL BREAK ya'll!!! I've been back to work since mid-July, and I, my friends, am ready for a BREAK!!! Especially since I'll be journeying to GA to visit some family and friends :)

But, enough day dreaming of Fall Break...let's talk about my week:

First up....gotta show off my new do. I am LOVIN' the bangs!!! Haven't had bangs since it was stylish to tease them up to Heaven :)

Secondly, I tried a few more CLEAN EATING recipes.
If ya'll want some motivation, you MUST follow this chick:
She has some great ideas/quotes/recipes....just in general, a very motivating healthy FB page :)

Above: Quinoa with roasted red peppers and asparagus; english muffin with 1 egg, lowfat cheese, and one turkey sausage patty; pumpkin protein muffins

This week we also got to celebrate some of our local heroes...some firefighters came by our school. I was able to use a page from Mel D's We Remember 9/11 for LIttle Learners (Freebie)...and then my students were able to hand deliver them to a firefighter. :)
We also made our tissue paper flags and talked about what it meant to be a hero. I kept a very positive vibe and really tried to get across the message that heroes are everywhere and good things can come from bad things....

Onto a lighter topic...well, maybe not "lighter", but definitely sweeter:

I made a new Scientific Method packet! My candy science experiments have been very popular and it seems many of you share my love of sweets! :) I have already made this a FLASH freebie on my Facebook page (are you following there? If not...whY NOT?) ....

  3. You seriously look so much younger with the bangs! I am obsessed! I might need to jump on that bandwagon after seeing how fabulous you look! And that quinoa looks delish! Might be on the menu this weekend!
