Five For Friday With A Freebie Printable!

Happy Friday!  I am linking up with Doodle Bugs for my first Five for Friday Linky Party!  Heeeeerrrrreeee we gooooooo! 

Number One: Sometimes it takes a powerful quote to put it all in perspective.  Way back, in my first year of teaching, the following quote resonated deeply and still inspires me today.  Instead of carrying the quote around on a torn piece of note paper, I decided to jazz it up.  Click on the picture below to download this free printable.  I may make this the back cover of my teaching binder or maybe I will frame it. 

Number Two:  My grandma used to make the most delectable Danish Ebelskivers.  While poking around Costco this week, I discovered an ebelskiver pan for $15!  Mr. Winemaker will attempt to recreate my grandma's breakfast tradition on Saturday.  I adore both the Gwyneth and Daphne Oz cookbook/lifestyle books.  Oh, and my british obsession grows with a quaint little spot of tea cup.  LOVE!  Keepin' it calm.

Number Three:  My entire life I was an only child.  My father had two children from a previous marriage.  They were older and had a falling out with my dad thus we never spoke.  In the back of my mind I always wondered about my half sister and brother.  My father passed away this year after a long struggle with alcoholism.  This week I received a letter in the mail from my half sister hoping to reconnect.  I am excited, nervous, hopeful, and curious about this new journey in front of me.  To be continued....

Number Four:  This card from a sweetie student I LOVE and can't help but reading it over and over.     

Number Five: No TV for me this week.  I love getting caught up and watching my favorite YouTube channels!  Some of my favorites include: It's Judy's Life, Essie Button, Tanya Burr, ToneItUp, Amarixe.  These fabulous ladies talk about makeup, health, and life!  If you want to check any of these channels out just go to the You Tube website and type the names in to the search bar.  Let me know what you think!
