High Five Friday!

The highlights of my week were...
1. My students are doing their big, end of the year testing this month.
I gave them some Smarties to make them smart and they loved them!
One boy asked, "Will these really make me smarter?"
Gotta love 8 year olds :)
 2. I've been anxiously awaiting this Amy Atlas book.
It arrived at my door this week.
It did not disappoint.
It's FULL of pictures and amazing party planning ideas!!
 3. Thought my toes needed a little bit of neon
I read the title and it was confirmed :)
$2 splurge!

 I also "needed" some orangey lipstick
and I love this Revlon $5 option from Target
It's long lasting, great color and very summery.

 4. I've been grading a lot of papers lately
good thing I have helpers :)
5.  I made a banana cake with homemade caramel frosting
and it was delish!
Might be a contender for my favorite, sans chocolate cake.
*Check back in a few days for the recipe.
