Five for Friday - March 22

22 March 2013
I am linking up with Kacey of Doodle Bugs for Five for Friday again!
1. I have the guinea pigs for the week.  The one in the front is Chrysanthemum and Daisy is hiding in her house.  I became a fan of piggies with my first guinea pig, Molly.  She lived 9 1/2 years and was the best guinea pig ever!  These two...not so much.  I think because they have each other, they are not as friendly towards people.  They are cute and funny, though!  Lately, they have been fighting over the bigger wood house in their cage at school.  They screech at each other trying to get the other out.  It is so loud it stops the class!
Their huge cage!  Literbox and all!  For more info on classroom pets, check out:

2.  I have off all next week!  I wish I could tell you all that I am going away somewhere fabulous and warm, but I am not.  I am excited to sleep late :)  My fur babies and I are big fans of sleeping in!

3. I am teaching a one credit in-service course starting in April.  If you live on Long Island and are close enough, you are welcome to sign-up.  I have taught a lot of courses for our teacher center over the years.  The most recent NY state teacher certification requires that teachers take credit hours every year to maintain their certificate.  

4. We shared our robot projects on Wednesday!  They came out really cute.  Click here for the post. 

5.  I don't watch a ton of tv, but I love Us Weekly.  This magazine comes in the mail every Friday.  I come home from work, put on sweatpants, hop into bed, and read it!  The simple things make me happy.   I tell myself Us Weekly is the classiest of the gossip magazines!  I know People is pretty legit, but there is way too much reading involved.  I love my Us Weekly because it is a mind break.  I scan through the pictures and read the captions and then done...pass it on to Grandma Bohrer. 

I do read books, too.  I don't want you to think I am a lazy dummy!  Haha..  I finished Gone Girl, Abducted, and Dead Weight recently.  I loved Gone Girl and thought Abducted was good.  Dead Weight was a free Kindle download, so I cannot complain. 

Happy Friday!  Hop over to Doodle Bugs to check out other links or to link up yourself.


  1. Gotta love celebrities magazines! I enjoy looking at gorgeous women wearing beautiful dresses.

  2. I don't usually buy those magazines, but I had to stop and buy US Weekly after browsing through it in line at the grocery store. I love watching Teen Mom and couldn't believe that Leah had another baby!!

  3. I agree it is one of the classier rags. And for that I indulge at the checkout from time-to-time.

    You Might Be a First Grader...

  4. I just have to say your guinea pigs are adorable! And I have almost the exact same Friday routine with the US Weekly too ;-)

  5. Love that you "outed" your gossip fascination. I too have secret reading behaviors . . . although I love me some great literature and a moving story, a certain blogger turned me on to Sylvia Day and I haven't been the same since. Hehehehe . . . don't tell the hubs! Merry weekend to you :)

  6. So glad that someone else has the same Friday night routine as I do! My magazine of choice is OK! though... and my night often includes McDonalds too (gasp!). :)

  7. My Spring Break doesn't officially start until the end of next week but I'm with ya! So looking forward to sleeping in each day!! Also, I too am a US magazine junkie. A little tabloid trash never hurt anyone, right?

    Enjoy your weekend!

  10. EEEK! I just die everytime I see your fuzzy babies. They are the cutest! I bet your littles just have a blast with the guinea pigs. Our class pet (a goldfish named Nemo) just went to the big fishbowl in the sky this week and the kids were in tears! Maybe a guinea pig is in our future....
    I love your robots! Super cute! I will have to squeeze in some robot fun because it looks like too much fun! Hope you have a relaxing weekend :)

  11. I LOVE your N-A-P pillows so fun! And wasn't Gone Girl the best?! I feel like I have no time to read these days! Enjoy your week off!

    Lucky to Be in First

  12. What a sweet picture of your four fuzzies!! I had a subscription to US Weekly but it just ended. Now I'm really missing it. It's my guilty pleasure for sure. :)

  13. Love your N-A-P pillows!! Where did they come from? I think I may need to have them (LOL)!!

    1. They are from Etsy! I love them and they are made really well!

  14. Hi :) I am your newest follower. I think your pets are ADORABLE - @ school and home. I think that is the biggest cage I have ever seen for guinea pigs. My little brother would be jealous.

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  15. My US Weekly comes each Thursday. Even my husband reads it!

  16. family first think anything not based on economic reality is doomed to failure. Whether it’s farming, mining, tourism or small business, it is a truism that capital goes where it is made welcome and stays where it gets looked after. And whilst Australia is indeed blessed with abundant natural resources, Australia’s real wealth is not beneath the ground, it is between the ears! family first believes property rights, free markets, voluntary arrangements and effective safety nets provide the best opportunity for Australia and Australians to prosper.
