This is my first Five for Friday post. Can you believe that? I'm going to Twitterize my post today. That means be less wordy. I like to joke that my husband uses 5 words when 10 would do, and I use 100 words when 10 would do. See this entire paragraph? Totally unnecessary. I can't help myself.
1. I became obsessed with a new drink. Starbucks Valencia Orange Refresher. So very good. And I live in Texas which means it will be consistently hot enough to enjoy this drink for at least the next 60 days.
2. My younger daughter cracks me up. This big girl was very noisily giving herself a doggy grooming.
Maggie looked at me (dead serious), "Oh my gosh. I think she's sucking her own milk." No words for this.
3. My super awesome Silhouette Portrait giveaway ended. I was so excited about this you would think they had given me one. I love it so.
4. I conquered this beast.
I am substituting this school year, and today was my first day back. I filled in for the receptionist. I managed to answer the phone and transfer calls without hanging up on one single person. I call that a success. It'll be fun to be back to teaching in second and third grade next week.
5. I finished up this bad boy. Anybody else obsessed with all things chalk?
Happy long weekend to you!
