8.8 | high five for friday!


…one…  my workouts were okay this week.  actually, they were pretty good.  but my heart just wasn’t in it.  it was like pulling teeth to get myself moving.  but i actually think it’s getting better.  school starts next week for us teachers and i’m craving my regular schedule.


….two…  i love amy poehler anyway, but the new zen pencils comic rocks.  {click the comic below to see an enlarged image.}

…three…  i had coffee with my friend jess this week.  it’s becoming a sort of regular thing.  we got have coffee at this place downtown and then walk down to this wine bar for hummus.  we call ourselves “those bitches” now because we order water and hummus at the wine bar every time.  clearly, the waitress hates us.  but we have fun talking about random crap on the internet, people we went to high school with, and our dating lives.  in other words, stuff that no one else wants to sit for four hours and talk about.  🙂

…four…  i’ve been working on some things for school.  not a whole lot.  but a few lesson pieces!  i’m going to head up next week to my room and start organizing.  to most people, this would seem like a chore.  but this time of the year is actually my favorite!

teacher discounts for back to school shopping
if you’re a teacher, click for a list of teacher discounts i’ve found recently. also, this saturday (august 9th), mardel is having their annual school sale. 20% off all school stuff.

…five…  my friend kat and i have planned a back to school party for tomorrow evening.  she’s making pulled pork sliders and coleslaw.  i’m making potato salad and my sweet tea with lemonade icing cake.  everyone else is bringing snacks and appetizers and of course, beer.  it’ll be fun to catch up with everyone and have a couple beers before we have to get serious next week.

sweet tea cake!
i made this southern living sweet tea cake with lemonade frosting a couple of weeks ago. i liked it so much, i’m going to make it again!
