{Five for Friday - June 19th}

Hi, friends!

I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for some fun Five for Friday action!

Tomorrow I will be in my cousin's wedding. I am also Princess Ana and Elsa pale. I NEVER tan. For example, for my senior year of prom, I had to start in *JANUARY* tanning for 2-3 minutes at a time JUST to get some color by May. It's intense. 

So, I have been slathering myself in Jergens "Glow". I'm not sure I so much as *glow* as I do favor an Oompa Loompa. Just saying. #thestruggleisreal


I'm so excited to celebrate my husband this Father's Day. Last year on Father's Day, we got the call that we were *finally* matched with a birth mother. It was the most precious day to receive a call that we would *finally* be parents. 

So, for Allen's 1st official Father's Day, one of his gifts was this little modge podge frame. It was quick, simple and I think it turned out too cute! I mean, I kinda just want to keep it for myself. 

I simply just printed out images on regular paper, got a .97 wooden frame from Wal-mart and modge podge the images on the frame. I then hot glued a piece of green ric-rac around the edges and wrote a sweet Father's Day note on the back with a Sharpie. {WARNING! Be careful when you are modge podging not to place your finger on the paper when it's wet. I accidently did this, and when I pulled up, little Noah's head was stuck to my finger. Oops. I just chose a different picture and modge podged over it.}

I also made my *own* version of this pin from Pinterest. Love it!

We had a play date with one of our friends. Noah and A were *adorable* together. A is obsessed with Noah's hair {I mean, can you blame the kid?!}. They ate Puffs, kissed each other, pulled each other's hair. It was a good time. :)

I am redoing my bathroom. As of yesterday, I have *all* the pieces needed. I'm just scared to death that I won't "Pinterest Love It" like I should, ya know what I mean?! My shower curtain is gray and white stripped. My towels are white and gray. Rugs are white. Just...I need to do it. I'm going to do it. {And then we can actually eat on the kitchen table because all this crap will be gone.}

I am *ONE* article and *TWO* activities away from being done with my newest nonfiction pack for 3rd-5th graders. Love it. Obsessed with it. I may or may not have even watched all 3 of the Jurassic Park movies. I mean. Ya know. If you want to see what's inside, check out my similar nonfiction pack, Ocean Animals. Love. it. too. {Next up...Zoo Animals, The Human Body and Our Military!}

Well, that was fun! Have you linked up yet?

Until then,


  1. YEA for ADOPTION!!! Love it!!!

  2. That Father's Day gift is so precious. As for being pale, I know how it is. That Jergens stuff is pretty good.

    Made with Love

  3. Looks like you've had a great week! I hope the wedding goes well! I completely understand the pale thing - I am SUPER pale! We travel a lot and yet I still never catch a tan! I've now come to accept that I will never be tanned and always be pale! So glad that everything panned out for you! Hope Allen has a great Father's Day!

  4. What a week!!! Congrats on getting matched!! So excited for you!! The father's day card could not be cuter :)

  5. Lindsay, I completely understand your struggle. I never tan, just burn! Love the color of the bridesmaid dress. The Father's Day craft turned out adorable, he will love it. Enjoy your weekend and have fun at your cousin's wedding! :)
