Friday Favorites

Friday is a good day to talk about your favorites, right?  Here are a few of my favorites on this lovely Friday:

  • This girl and her song "Rollin' in the Deep."  It's one of those roll the windows down, turn the volume waaay up and sing your heart out.  I love British songstresses; give me Adele, give me Amy Winehouse, give me Kate Nash.  Love them.

  • Teacher Appreciation Week.  My students brought so many sweet treats for me and the PTA and administration hooked us up with goodies.  I loved this week. In a time where education budgets are getting slashed, my colleagues are losing their jobs and politicians are bashing teachers, it's nice to feel appreciated.

  • Mother's Day.   I like celebrating the awesome moms in my life and I happen to love being celebrated.  Win win.  Here are me and my boy on Mother's Day last year:
Oh, I swoon at this picture. 

  • Pinterest.  My friend Jenny of at Crash Test Mommy (go check her out) sent me an invite after i whined on Twitter that no one had invited me.  If you need an invite, just comment with your email.  I'll invite you.  Pinterest is a party that everyone should be invited to.  Beware: you will lose a lot of time once you start clicking and pinning.  I found this sweet baby while clicking around:

  • My boys.  I love them so so much.  They are my favorite any day of the week.

Adele is a goddess! I listen to her every day. And pinterest - I am so excited about that. One more thing to be addicted too. I actually think this will be helpful at the same time though.

Have a great mother's day girl!
