Happy Heart Day and Five for Friday

Happy day after Heart Day. I hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day.  I'm looking forward to having time this LOOOONG weekend to do some blog hopping to check out what everyone has been up to.  I'm especially excited to see how everyone spent Valentine's Day so I decided to host a party to have all of our fun links in one place.
If you posted pictures of your Valentine's Day (from school or personal) then grab my button and link up to the party.

Speaking of parties. . . I am linking up with the super creative Kacey from Doodle Bugs Teaching for one of my new favorite parties Five for Friday.  
So here are 5 of my Valentine's Day pictures.
The date on my red easel and the entrance to my classroom.
That's me on the right going for my "hot mess of an outfit" look.  Yes. . .I am wearing two different socks but my kids loved it.

When I opened up my Valentine's Day box to decorate my room I found this note that I left for myself last year.  I literally LOLed when I found it.  I remember last year at the end of the day when I was EXHAUSTED my volunteer and I brainstormed out this new plan.  I totally remember grabbing this lime green piece of construction paper and writing myself this note so that I wouldn't forget this year.  The P.S. part is my favorite.

I owe myself a HUGE thank you (go team me).   This idea worked like a CHARM.  My kids had their cards passed out in a record 15 minutes.  Seriously 15 minutes and they were done so we had plenty of time to chill out and enjoy the rest of the afternoon.

Dinner time at one of my favorite restaurants.  The garlic knots are over the top good.

There you have it some random pictures from my Valentine's Day.  If you want to link up with your pictures from Valentine's Day (PLEASE NOTE:  you can share as many pictures as you want), just grab my button and join in on the fun.  Well I'm off to eat my leftovers.
SHINE on everyone

  13. That note idea is SO genius! I wrote one to myself for the beginning of next year...reminding myself that September is hard, I don't really want to quit and by October everything will be smooth sailing. :) I'll have to come back and link up with my Valentine's pictures.
