. . . for Lauren and Lauren: High Five for Friday

September 6, 2012

High Five for Friday

dress: kohls (years old)  vest: kohls (similar)  wedges: old navy $4  (similar)

1.  Taking pictures of yourself is awkward.
Taking pictures of your backside is extra awkward.
But I really like the back of this vest, so I did it just for you.

2. I almost wrote, "I'm not complaining . . . " but then I realized that is exactly what I am doing.
I'm complaining because by the end of the school day I am sweaty, exhausted and often crabby and am dealing with 22 kids that feel the same way.
Looking forward to hopefully cooler weather so my classroom isn't so hot!


(Just in case you can't tell - it says 85 degrees.)

3.  This really made me laugh.
If only I had all the outfits I pinned.

4. I think I deserve some major credit for making this tub of jelly beans last from May until this week. 
I think I should be rewarded with another tin. 


5.   If I had actually been cooking dinner the last two weeks I'd share a recipe with you.
But I haven't.
So I've got nothing.
Let's hope that this coming week is better.  Maybe I'll make this:

buffalo chicken pasta salad


Hope you have a wonderful weekend!  I'm looking forward to some much needed time spent with Chris this weekend!

Happy Friday!

I'm with Brittany! Your shopping steals are incredible!

I'm loving your dress and vest.

I think you completely deserve a new tin full of jelly beans.

So cute how you layered the vest over the dress! I can't believe your school doesn't have a/c and it's been that hot...crazy! Pretty sure that of jellybeans would've only lasted a week in my household :) Have a great weekend, Katie!

Okay I remember not having AC in elementary school but I seriously had no idea that some schools still don't have it! This is America....lol

Kacie said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Cute vest! I'm glad you showed us the back :) Jelly beans are the best! Did it come with the little guide to mixing flavors? Yum! Now I want jelly beans!

1. Still love the vest, but I think I love those wedges more. Even I would wear them! (Not to school of course...I'd probably fall over!) You look amazing!
2. I get cold at school. Because our AC is too high. Still don't think I'd trade with you. Tough it out! I'll think of you when it gets too cold!
3. Heh. That's funny. Butttt, I'm finally getting my freeruns this weekend, so I'm done in the shoe department for a while!
4. WHOA. If I had them, they'd be gone in, I don't know, maybe a month?
5. Let's not even talk about how good that looks.
