The Friday Five Vol. 2 and a Giveaway Winner!

All images are linked to their original blog post/author via Pinterest. :) 

1. {this collection of healthy lunches}

I don't care if the blogger wrote this post about what she packs for her daughter's lunch, I'm so packing some of these for myself next year!  Packing a lunch is really my least favorite thing to do. I get excited about it for a week once school starts and then it becomes my arch nemesis again.  Thus the reason I usually eat Larbars, baby carrots, and fruit for lunch. There is little to no thinking required!

2. {this quote}

This time last year, I was touring Julia's kitchen at the Smithsonian! It was amazing to see all the gadgets she had collected. :) Especially since I love cooking myself.  Not only do I love Julia, this quote pretty much describes how I feel about teaching, so blessed to do something for a living I'm passionate and interested in!

3. {this mantra for everyday}

I ADORE birthdays, especially the birthdays of my family and friends.  Plus, MY birthday is tomorrow. :)  I LOVE birthdays!!! Birthdays are so magical, if only we could wake up everyday with excitement and wonder that a birthday morning wake up brings.  :)

4. {this missing parts bucket}

Seriously, how genius is this?  My students are always leaving cubes and dice and money on the floor and it drives me BONKERS.  I love the idea of having a central location for those missing pieces, and then putting them in their proper place place at a later, more convenient time!

5. {these end of the year awards}

I love, love, love the idea of students making awards for each other.  I can't wait to do this with my fourth graders next year. I'm thinking of possibly having them do them once a month, so my kiddos get to hear how wonderful their classmates think they are ALL year long!
