Favorite Pins Friday

Who doesnt spend way to much time on pinterest already!? Well get ready to spend even more time...I have spent the last thirty minutes looking at everyone who has Linked up with the fabulous First Grade Parade's Favorite Pin Friday Linky Party! Its beyond addicting but I have seen so much stuff I love!! And some amazing ideas! Show your favorite pins from this week! It can be anything you want from school to recipes to home decor! Here are some of my favorite pins from the week!


I love this poster by Fun in First Grade
I love this tips she gives and how its all in one place on this cute little poster!

I love this idea for a fun sight word game from First Grade Fabulosity! I feel like students would really get into it! And how simple!

Here is one more great idea I found this week plus it looks pretty simple to make! A great classroom organization idea from Mrs. Brown's Blog


I love food...thank you pinterest for these wonderful new recipes I need to try!

BBQ Beer Chicken in a crockpot (YUM!! perfect for summer!) from Zip List


Something Swanky (her blog is so cute!) came up with 75 desserts you could bring to a BBQ! The ideas are so cute and since its BBQing season it was a great blog to look through! How cute is the brownie, marshmallow, strawberry/blueberry on a stick!


How cute is this wall decal from Off The Wall Expressions I think it would be so cute in a play room or little boys room!

I feel like as an Army Family we are always counting down. Counting down till Daddy gets home again, counting down till our next move, counting down till a special outing or vacation etc! I love this sign from Infarrantly Creative and I feel like it would be simple enough to make our own and put it in the mantel! A unique way to countdown instead of crossing off days on a calendar! 

I know 4th of July was yesterday but this is so cute!! I have mason jars left over from our wedding and I know I will be making this from It All Started With Paint


Love that I pinned this! I feel like in a few years we will definitely be making this from Behind The Moon. She made it for her sons space themed birthday! 

Need something to do with all your extra noodles at the end of the summer? Or when they go on sale at walmart for like $.50 at the end of the summer?? I know one kid in my house that would LOVE this! Great idea from Bath Activities For Kids


Here is my work out motivation for the week! It wont link back to the original blog site but I have been using it this arms are sore (so sore...)

Well that was so much fun...Link up so I can stalk your pins and get more ideas ;) I know what I will be doing all day...

  3. I'm sorry, but I couldn't find your email....I just wanted to officially invite you to the 2nd Annual VA Blogger Get-Together! We had a blast last summer and we're excited to do it again!!

Since it will be Christmas in July... you're welcome to bring a $5 gift to swap (if you wish!). We'll be doing a "white elephant" style exchange, so bring or make something to surprise your fellow bloggers. Please RSVP by emailing me ( so we have an accurate headcount.

    I hope you had a good Fourth.

  5. The Success poster is wonderful! I thought about reproducing it it on paper and placing a copy in each child's homework folder! I also love the little boy with the jet pack. What a cute idea! Thanks for sharing!
