Five for Friday {Linky Party}

Happy Friday! Linking up here with Doodle Bugs for the weekly linky, Five for Friday!





So my little baby, Jake, is obsessed with his teething toy Sophie the Giraffe. I know it sounds crazy, but this giraffe has magical powers! Every time Jake grabs a hold of his giraffe, he’s in another world. He chews on this toy like it’s no one’s business! He’s quiet, peaceful, and concentrated on Sophie! According to the manufacturers, this giraffe helps babies with all five senses. It has a great taste, feel, look, sound, and sight. It’s been around since 1961 and was originally created in Paris. It’s grown in popularity here in the United States over the past two decades. It’s kind of pricey ($25), but worth the cost if it entertains my little man! This week, Jake just discovered that when he squeezes it, it makes a noise! It’s amazing watching Jake discover new things. Thanks Sophie!


My sister works for TumbleRoot Apparel, a country lifestyle clothing company. They have super cute clothes for those obsessed with the country lifestyle. My sister and I are huge country music fans, so naturally we love their clothing! My sister is super lucky she gets to work somewhere she enjoys. My sister has gotten me some super cute baby country apparel. I dressed little Jake in the latest onesie from TumbleRoot. He’s rockin’ it country style!


I reorganized my Pinterest boards this week. Check them out if you want to see some classroom pins, baby pins, and home décor pins. While I was working, I didn’t have much time to organize my pins. Some pins ended up on the incorrect boards. While Jake was napping this week, I reorganized everything and created some new boards. I am hoping to keep up on my pinning so I can save some awesome ideas found on Pinterest.


Even though I am not going back to school this school year, I am still creating some fun stuff for my future classroom! I posted some FREEBIES on my TpT store for Back to School. Check it out! I’ll be posting more things to gear up for the Back to School Boost One Day sale on August 20th.






I made another crockpot recipe this week! It was lasagna! It was a little more work than I thought. Now that I have done it once, I think it will be easier the second time around. You can check out the recipe here! Again, this is not a picture of MY lasagna. HAHA! I’m not quite ready to show you pictures of MY cooking!



Thanks for reading my Five for Friday! Looking forward to seeing everyone's posts today!

Have a great weekend!
