. . . for Lauren and Lauren: High 5 for Friday

September 13, 2012

High 5 for Friday

As I get farther into the school year, I'm becoming more and more grateful for weekends. 
Here's to a big high five for Friday!

pants: NY &Co  shirt: old navy  necklace: DIY  watch: target (similar)

1. I know I just posted an outfit with these red pants, but here they are again.
They are just too comfortable to not wear often!
(And I'm well aware I should hem these pants.)

2. A student saw this picture on the bulletin board by my desk at school and asked me,
"Is that black and white because that's all they had back then?" 


Yep. Back in May. When I was 100 years old. 

3.  I used to never be a fan of spending money on jewelry, but lately that is all I want! 
First I got my mini bubble necklace, and last week I bought a tear drop statement necklace.
Next I want some kind of key necklace and I am loving this one




4.  I made these cookies this week and they were delicious. 

Pretzel Cookies with Chocolate & Peanut Butter Chips  Okay I think I'm in heaven now

5.  I am beyond excited that new shows have started this week.
Parenthood tops the list as one of my favorites.

I'm also looking forward to Survivor, Parks and Recreation, and New Girl.
What show are you most excited about?

Happy Weekend!




Pin It!

Parenthood is one of my favorites for sure. Along with Ellen, Mad Men, and many more (I do watch a bit more TV in the Fall and winter!).

Nicole Prša said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I love Parenthood too! That's so funny about your students' question. Last year, I was at this presentation of 10th graders' research papers and I asked one of students if Jacob (one of my students) had gone yet and she goes, "Aw why, are you his Mom?!" Ummmm...I'm 24 missy! Do I really look like I could be his Mom?!

Rachel said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

oh man, I laughed so loud at the question about whether black and white was all they had back then...that's hilarious! And those red pants are awesome, I would wear them frequently, too!

Ashley said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates
