Flashback and Five For Friday

Linking up with Amanda and Kacey!

Such a crazy, busy week! I leave Sunday morning for our Disney Cruise and there's still so much to do!!

What is that?? Oh, yes, that's an empty suitcase that should be packed!
This is such a crazy time of year isn't it? My husband doesn't understand why it's so difficult for me to get a sub and take off for a cruise!! How about anyone else? It's so much work to get a sub for 4 days!!! I had to have grades and my growth plan done too (due next week) because I won't be here! Triple work! I know once I get on board, I will feel a sense of relief, but until then....

I did manage to get my Mother's Tea invites printed!
The photos are black & white with the invite printed on vellum on top, secured with decorative brads. They're always a big hit! I have kind of a big production for my Mother's Tea. It's a tradition held in my classroom.

Check this baby out!!!! My friend Erica told me about this steal right away!
It's a magic candy dispenser! It's motion activated! It's on clearance at JCPenney from $54.99 to $15! PLUS you can get an additional 10% off with this code (spree10) and ship free to stores! Imagine what this would do for a classroom! I may have to use it for one of my Spark Student Motivation posts! :O)
Do you know Lia Sophia? My friend Amber sells this beautiful line of jewelry and I just ordered these three rings! The photos don't do them justice, but they're show stoppers! It's about the only kind of shopping I have time to do right now...catalogs and online! The middle one is mint green!

I had a wonderful opportunity to help host a Peace, Hope, Love, and Kindness linky with my friends Jivey, Amanda, and Stacia. If you haven't had the chance to link up, don't worry, it will always be open! It will be a place to get a lift when you need one! Go check out all the inspirational stories/ideas that have already been shared!

Don't forget to link up tomorrow! So many great ideas to get motivated this time of year!!!


  1. Have a fantastic time on your cruise - what a fantastic treat for your family! Can't wait to hear more about your Mother's Day tea and that candy dispenser.

  6. When I was pregnant with my daughter we discovered that the Irishman had let his green card expire right before our spring break cruise. Because I was pregnant and wouldn't be able to go in the summer the only time we could go was in May. I took all five personal days and was out for a week. I stressed about it, but actually it was fantastic!

    Enjoy your trip!

  7. All those sub plans will be worth it! I used all of mine for my honeymoon and I don't regret it at all!

    Enjoy the sun and fun!

    Three Cheers for First Grade!

  8. 1. SUPER jealous of your cruise!!! WOO, have SO much fun... and yes I do know exactly what you mean about the stress of getting a sub and all that other jazz. I mean what other profession has to prepare another adult to fully do your job so much so that it's more work than just being there!?!

    2. I LOVE your Mother's Day Tea invites! We sent out ours today. I used a pack I found on TpT only because I need a frame of reference on the fly... I'm trying to rack up some ideas for years to come!

    Have fun!!!!!!

  14. Going on a little trip with your kids can be good for your team, as it brings you together and you have a lot of fun. The most important thing in such a trip is to prepare well and plan the trip well. If you have not done this before or are afraid to make a mistake somewhere, then you can resort to travel agencies that provide a wide range of services for various categories of tourists. If you are interested in such outdoor activities, then read more reviews on and see how other people travel on packages and even in large groups. If you are traveling in a group with children, you will be able to get a good discount and special offers.
