Five For Friday {October 2, 2015}

I seriously feel like summer ended 2.6 seconds ago and now...
it's October!

One of my favorite times of the year!
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE everything about fall!

Check out my pinterest boards for fun ideas:

Did you know that Walgreens has an app?

Oh my goodness - what a HUGE time saver for processing photos from your cell phone.

I usually use my good camera in the classroom, but there are many times I need to snap something quickly so I will grab my cell phone.
I would then need to email to myself or hook up USB, download, then go to Walgreens' website and upload them..... 

Now I just tap my Walgreens app - choose the photos I want to print, and they are ready in minutes! :) Woohoo!

Isn't picture day in kindergarten the best?
I LOVE seeing my cuties come in with bows, accessories, ties, and adorable duds.


Here is one way I stay organized as a working mom. 


On Sundays I make at least 2 meals that we can warm up and add a quick salad or side to...

I also prep tons of lunch options and ready to go snacks for my kiddos.

They LOVE packing their lunch when things look bright, colorful, and organized...

Pictured: I did hard boiled eggs, turkey and pepperoni roll ups, baggies of grapes and carrots, ranch to dip, apples, and then bought ready to yogurt, applesauce, yogurts, and cheese sticks.

It takes a little time to get everything prepped (but the kids love to help!) and then it is a HUGE life saver during our busy weeks! :)

Here are some other lunch ideas:

I posted a new product on TpT!

I am so excited about my new beginning sound search pack. 

I am working on a blog post about it, but for now check it out here:


  1. Your meal prep is impressive!

  2. Holy smokes! Your meal prep is awesome. Thanx for sharing.

  3. I started prepping meals for the week this year and love it! You're taking it to the next level there!

  4. Oh man, I have a hard enough time packing/prepping my own lunch! I am so impressed by all teacher moms... it seems more real now that I'm married, but I just can't picture ever managing it!

  5. Thanks for posting that meal prep picture. Impressive. :)
