Five for Friday!!

4/12/2013 / 10 comments
I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching's Five for Friday! Last week I had a Springy themed one, this week....not so much!

31 degrees. Blargh. A temperature that leads to...
Snow on last weeks beautiful crocuses. Not even snow - more of a grimy, gritty, slippery, iciness. Not at all fun to drive in!

The weather led to me needing this for school. This is a happy picture however! I adore this umbrella that my sister got me awhile back. It is perfect for this kind of weather and it never blows back in the wind too!
Now onto more cheerful things! BEADS!!! I have been wanting to make some new bracelets, and Michaels just happened to have a 55% off sale on bead gallery beads! I shall definitely be making a few this weekend!

Lastly we have my ipad case! I took the glitter case I had to school because --- I have a school ipad now too! I never brought my own ipad to school since I am a bit of a spazz/klutz. I just know what would happen if I did. Even my stainless steel coffee mug has battle scars! Since I took my glitter case to school I figured I would break out this one. I adore it!! My students are loving the glitter case too!

So that is my Friday! I hope you all had a terrific day (and hopefully a warmer one too!)  Don't forget to check out this post for a chance to win my Silent E Bunting Games!


  1. We've had a taste of spring weather....then a big drop! Spring is such a tease. Poor plants. I love the iPad case!

    You Might Be a First Grader….

  2. Stay warm...this seems like the winter that will never end. My toes are crying for a pedi! Popped over here from 5 for Friday.
    A Burst of First

    1. I know it is such a brutal one! My toes are crying for warmth!

  3. Oh no! Cold weather again? Yikes! That umbrella is adorable. I need one of those for all of the rain we have been getting down my way. Sending warm thoughts your way :)


    Fun in Room 4B

    1. I know, it is the winter that will not end! Thanks Elizabeth! :)

  4. Hi Melissa,

    I love the blue and green colours in those beads you bought! I have an umbrella the same shape as yours and love that I don't need to worry about it blowing inside-out when I'm using it. :)

    1. Thanks Lauren, I love how they look against the silver beads on the finished bracelet. Aren't those umbrellas the best? I don't know how I managed before I had it! :)

  5. Ha, ha I just LOVE your umbrella, I must find one for myself too cause we are getting a wintery mix yet again. :/ As for te iPad case it is to die for. Sooo pretty.

    Confession... I am a spazz/klutz too. LOL

    1. Thanks! Blah, more winter weather!?! I am so sorry! Hehe, it's good to know that I'm not alone, perhaps it's a Melissa thing!!
