Five for Friday

Five for Friday is a weekly teacher linky party where you post five random things from today or this past week on your blog.




For years I got gel manicures and pedicures at the salon, but lately I've been doing them myself. After a lot of trial and error I've found that my go-to brand is Essie for color and Seche Vite for top coat. I'm loving all the summer colors! I keep my nail stuff on my computer desk, because I love to do my nails while working on the computer. It sounds crazy, but it really helps time pass when I'm waiting for them to dry. It's tricky to type while I do so, but can be done! I heart multi-tasking.



I promised myself I wouldn't shop for the new school year until August started. But... someone posted about these on Instagram and I just had to have them! These were $9.97 for a pack of five at Walmart. They are sturdier than the ones at the dollar store, so it's worth it to me! I'm planning to use them for writing folders and writing station materials.

   

Being off this summer has given me an opportunity to spend a lot of time with my sweet fur baby, Klaus. He's a one year old miniature schnauzer. He is everything to my husband and me. He isn't supposed to be in the bed, but managed to sneak his way in... I snapped this pic to catch the grumpy look he gave me before I made him move. Spoiled! (I know, my fault).



During the school year I don't watch much TV, so I'm really taking advantage of the time I have during the summer. I love to binge-watch shows on Netflix through my iPad while doing random things around the house... washing dishes, cooking, blowing out/straightening my hair, cleaning, painting my nails, etc. Through this, I managed to watch the ENTIRE series of Gilmore Girls (all seven seasons). My friends tease me, but I LOVE THIS SHOW. The only bad part- the realization that I am now closer in age to Lorelai than to Rory. Yikes! There's nothing worse than that "You know your old when" moment when you relate to the parent more than the child. ::Sigh::


After being married for over a year and a half my husband and I finally picked the images for our wedding album! The pictures have been paid for since the wedding, but it was just so overwhelming. We had over 3,000  images (not an exaggeration, believe it or not) to comb through and narrow it down to just 90 images. JUST 90. It was exhausting! But it's finally done! Maybe we will have the album in our hands in time for our two year anniversary. Hah!

  1. Hey Melissa! I found you through the linky. We just got Netflix. I have been telling people it should come with a warning! LOL! I have watched way too much TV! With so many photos to look through, no wonder it took you awhile. That would be so hard! The one you posted is adorable. :-)

    1. Crystal,

      Thank you for your kind comment! I agree- Netflix is dangerous! One of my guiltiest pleasures. But we have no enjoy it now- once school starts it's all over! ;)

  2. What a great and probably addicting idea, I have an i-Pad but don't watch Netflix on it. I may have to start! Love the adorable wedding pic!

    1. Amanda,

      I watch TV all the time on my iPad- we have a large flat screen but the small screen doesn't bother me. One time I missed an episode of Game of Thrones and was so worried someone was going to spoil it for me before I got a chance to watch that I watched it on my lunch hour on my iPhone (HBO GO). If that isn't a "You know you have a problem when..." moment, I don't know what is! :)

      Thanks for your kind comment!

  3. I LOVE Game of Thrones! We got the name for our daughter from the show! I am definitely a Netflix fanatic but have also been watching Amazon more too. Looks like you are new to the blog, TpT scene too:) I look forward to following your progress with both, it is super addicting as well!
