Five for Friday

I am linking up once again with Kacey at Doodle Bugs Teaching for her Five for Friday Linky Party. 

I have been busy trying to update products and I have a few new ones that have been uploaded this week. I will be going into detail about each one in the upcoming weeks, but you can see snippets of each one here. If you click on the picture, it will take you directly to the product in my TpT Store or you can check them out at each of my stores: Teachers Pay TeachersTeacher's Notebook, and Educents. Please follow me while you are there. :)

I ordered an Erin Condren planner about a week ago and it came in this week. {happy dance} We got my mom one for Christmas and I have several friends that have them and everyone I know absolutely loves their planner. I had been trying to decide if I should get one or not since it was so late in the year, but they were on sale and I KNEW it was a sign. She is so smart. From the branding of the box to the cute paper and sticker it comes wrapped it. It only adds to the amazing experience. I am so hoping that this will be a great tool to help me get everything for ‘A Dab of Glue Will Do’ organized into one place. Her stuff is amazing and I cannot wait to use it. 

We spent the majority of the week down in San AntonioTexas. My husband had a conference there Monday through Wednesday so we went down early Saturday and stayed through the conference. My mom came along too which was nice because I had someone to hang out with during the day and it was fun to reminiscence on all the good memories we had from going to San Antonio when I was a kid. The river walk is such a beautiful area and you cannot go wrong with the margaritas. They are some of the best I have ever had. We had a great time, but it was so nice to get back home. Traveling with two little kids is quite an experience and to-do. I am not sure if we will travel again as a family for the next four years :)

We walked all over the river walk. We brought out double Bob and our Chicco Snap and Go, but we were worried our double Bob would be too big. Prior to leaving I ordered a buggy board for the snap and go, hoping Molly might like it. It was not cheap and I was not sure if Molly would even like it, but it turned out to be amazing. I definitely recommend purchasing one if you have multiple kids. 

My husband and I celebrated our sixth year anniversary over the weekend. We went to Bohanans when we were in San Antonio to celebrate and it was fantastic! I cannot believe that it has been six years already. We met online while living in Florida. He just moved to the states from England and I had just been living in Miami for a couple of months. We both joined a dating website that had a free three day trial and met during those three days. We talked for several weeks through email and phone conversations and finally met in person at Starbucks. Long story short, we got engaged, got married at the court house a few days later (on Valentine’s Day), and then got married on April 11 in front of all of our family and friends. It was the best day ever. We had friends and family from all over the world and it far exceeded everything I ever dreamed of. I have been beyond blessed to marry my husband. He is my rock, my best friend, my number one fan, and has a hot British accent. What is not to love?! He makes me strive to be a better person every single day and I am forever grateful for that. Doing life with him is grand. 

Our 7th Inning Stretch Giveaway ended on Sunday night. @mookerdoodles and @mrsplemonskindergarten were the two lucky winners of a $150 Target gift card. This has been such an amazing experience for me. I was lucky enough to meet some incredible people/teachers/bloggers/TpTers. I have met some great blogging friends and we have created our own little community of support, encouragement, and advice. I did this giveaway to try and increase my followers and never did I imagine I would quickly become a part of such a great group of women. It has been so refreshing.

Well that is a wrap for this week. Thanks for stopping back and checking out what I have been up to. Don't forget to follow me Facebook and email me a FREEBIE from your store or blog so I can add it to my Daily FREEBIE at 4:00 PM on my Facebook page. I hope that you had a great week and that you enjoy your weekend.

    1. Thank you so much! San Antonio was fun; however, traveling with kids makes it a little bit different than traveling without kids. ;) Let me know if you are ever in Texas. It is a great state, but I am a tad bit biased. Have a nice and relaxing weekend!

  4. Jennifer, you are a gorgeous bride!! Love your wedding pictures! My girls and I tag along with my husband to his conventions, doesn't it make great mini vacays? Can't believe our IG loop giveaway went soooo well! You are one organized woman! Especially with that planner :) Have a wonderful weekend, friend!!

  5. I love my EC planner! Totally worth it. Gorgeous wedding pics!
    Always Kindergarten

  6. I love my EC planner! I stumbled upon her website a few years ago and have not looked back! :) Organizing has never been so fun! ;) The giveaway was awesome and it was all because of you! You worked so hard to make it run smoothly. I'm so excited to have this community to chat with. Happy anniversary to you and your hubby. My hubby and I met the same way! Your pictures were gorgeous, you were such a beautiful bride. I hope you have a great weekend!

  7. I am becoming a regular visitor here now :) Your wedding was lovely by the looks of it. We are creeping up on 9 years in August-time flies. I wanted an Erin Cronden too, but could never justify it until they went on sale. Yes, it is late in the year, but not too late, and I figure it will let me know if it is worth it in the future...mine should be here in the next three days!

  8. I have always been wondering about those EC planners! I LOVE that you have your logo on the front :) I may have to check out that site.

    Happy Anniversary!! I LOVE the story of how you two met. Wishing you both many more happy years together.

    Have a great weekend!

  9. I LOVE your planner!!!! I have debated on getting one, but haven't yet! Yours makes me really want one now since it is adorable! Your wedding story is so cute! Happy Anniversary! It's always neat to hear how couples met! And your pictures are gorgeous! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  10. Oh my gosh, girl, your wedding photos are awesome!! Absolutely beautiful. Happy anniversary. I loved hearing how you met. And I can't even imagine listening to that accent all day. I probably would have a hard time getting mad at that is like getting mad at royalty or something, right!! :-) Will you bring your planner to Vegas? I'd love to get a peek inside and see what all the hype is around these EC planners. And I know I've told you how much I love your blog design but it hits me every time I come to leave a comment. I usually read through my bloglovin app so I miss the cute blog designs and some of the pictures so it makes me so happy when I click on your blog! Such a fun logo.


  11. Jennifer,
    I love your love story! The pictures are beautiful.

    Made with Love
