. . . for Lauren and Lauren: 5 things Friday

March 8, 2012

5 things Friday

1. I got this shirt at Old Navy for $3.  I really like the color. Slightly unsure about the higher front. 

2. Last week Chris was out of town so I didn't make much variety in dinner each night.  
I realized Friday morning that I had some kind of Mexican meal every night.  
I used to have an irrational hatred of tortillas.  
Now I'm not sure what I was thinking, as this was one of the delicious meals I had last week: 

Mexican Tortilla Pizza

3. One of my students wrote me a story this last week.  There was a part where a girl gets a letter from her teacher, introducing herself, before the school year starts.  


 It says, " Here are some of my favorite things: reading, writing, drawing and of course teaching. I love to run. I have dirty blond hair and blue eyes.  I love sushi and candy.  I hate any type of insect. Love, Mrs. Vale" 

Well she pretty much nailed me right on. 
Except for the blue eyes. 
Glad they're learning the most important things about me.   

4. Made these frozen yogurt dots last night. 
They were pretty good.  
Except they melted very quickly.  I was was pretty much eating yogurt with my hands by the end. 


5. I am so happy I get to spend the weekend with my favorite Laurens: 


And of course my sweet niece Lena Jane:  


and favorite little boy, Travis James: 


Happy weekend!
Pin It!

I'm definitely on the fence about those really loose shirts with the high fronts. But for $3 you might as well try it! The shirt color looks great with those boots.

What fun! Such a sweet story by your student! I love your top...my youngest would too. I was flattered last night when she asked if she could borrow one of my tops! When you are 43 and your 18 year old wants to borrow your clothes, that's a good thing, right? LOL

I think that shirt looks great on you! the higher front is definitely a trend right now, and you pull it off perfectly!

I've also seen those frozen yogurt bites all over Pinterest lately... that is funny that they melted so fast. Good to know, but I'll probably still try them! Have a great weekend :)
