Five For Friday! (First Timer)

Happy Friday Ya'll!

Today I'm participating in my first ever Five For Friday Linky party!  Let's get this party started!  I'm giving you five things I've experienced/completed this week.  Who knows what theme I will choose next week!

I started the week like most classroom teachers with a day off from the classroom because of MLK day!  The lil nugget and I relaxed around the house with a playdate for the both of us!  We love our friends!

On Tuesday I had the pleasure of participating in a half day mandated Human Diversity Training. There is nothing better than spending a teacher work day in meetings right before report cards are due.  #TeacherProblems
On Wednesday I had surgery to help correct my infertility issues for the possibility of baby #2 later this year.  The crazy thing is, at first glance the surgeon thought I had Hydrosalpinx.  After getting in and taking a look, he realized the reason my fallopian tube was blocked and swollen with fluids is because my right ovary was sitting on top of it!  Crazy, right?!  My organs had been relocated to an empty cavity in my body preventing mother nature from working properly.  He thinks when I was pregnant with the lil nugget, she didn't have much room to move around, so she pushed things out of the way to be more comfy while in utero.  Maybe she knew from the get go she didn't want any siblings! ;)  He also discovered I had a mild case of Endometriosis as well as a few cysts needing to be removed.  Basically, the original surgery went rogue and a different procedure ended up happening.   Now I'm just chilling at the house recovering from a very uncomfortable surgery.  The lil nugget is fascinated with my incisions and the glue that is "keeping mommy together".
Yesterday I blogged about a list of 2nd grade Kahoot games anyone can use if needing to spiral review content.  I will continue to add to the list each week, so definitely check back often.  If you haven't tried Kahoot you should!  Easy peasy engaging activities for your class.

Yummy Homemade Banana Bread

Last, but not least today is a Snow Day for everyone around us.  The lil nugget's school is closed today, so I'm home recovering with her.  She has been a fabulous assistant running the stairs for me, picking things up I can't reach, and baking with me.  We made some homemade banana bread together and will enjoy it with some hot chocolate this afternoon.  I can't take her out to enjoy the snow today because of the risk of slipping and falling as well as the bending over movement I currently don't have.  The mister will be home shortly to play in the snow with her.  Snow days are the best!  I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!  Until next time! :)))


  1. I love this idea! I just did some research on the "Five for Friday" concept, and think I will have to give it a try as well!
    I hope you enjoyed your snow days(:

    1. Thanks! Did you ever try out the 5 for Friday? I need to get back on the bandwagon. ;)


I love your comments! Thanks for taking the time! :)))
