2•13 | high five for friday!

H54F button


this week at school felt soooo long.  i was struggling with motivating myself and having a good attitude.  but on tuesday, one of my favorite students (yes, we teachers have favorites!)  brought me a gift she made for me with one of my favorite quotes on it.  i didn’t realize what she wanted the quote for she asked for my favorite author.  it was so sweet.  it’s now sitting on my desk as my post-it holder.



i had a great weekend with my parents and sisters.  i headed down to lubbock on friday afternoon.  i met up with my mama and sister, Chase for a movie and dinner.  we did a little shopping the next morning and then spent the rest of the time at my daddy’s regional swim meet.  he recently went back to high school swimming from college teaching and coaching.  it’s fun to watch him back at it.  and it was exciting to watch some competitive swimming too.

sweating it out up in the stands!


me and daddio after the meet.



i LOVED my february birchbox.  (okay, the mascara was just okay, but everything else was awesome!)  it came really early.  i wasn’t expecting it until next week.  i didn’t even get a tracking number or notice so it was a wonderful surprise!  the shampoo and conditioner smell so amazing.



apparently, i’ve been living under a rock terrified of hot sauces for several years because i just now realized how amazing sriracha is.  i have a very low tolerance for hot stuff, but the flavor is so good.  i just put a few little dots of it on whatever i’m eating.  it’s super spicy but i can’t seem to resist it lately.  also, i tried an israeli salad with my lunches this week.  it reminds me of summer.  🙂

the oatmeal
now i understand all of the sriracha cartoons from the oatmeal.



if you’re not following laurenwhiteboard on instagram, go do it right now.  she’s hilarious.  she takes quotes or funny sayings and puts them in cute lettering on her whiteboard.  pretty simple concept, but her posts always brighten my day.  i’ve especially enjoyed her valentine’s galentine’s day themed boards this week.

  1. The whiteboard account looks really cute, I’m gonna have to find her on IG! And I was the saaaaame way about sriracha but now I could basically eat it on everything.

    Thanks for linking up for H54F!

  2. That bowl is so cute! What a sweet, thoughtful gift. I’m kind of funny about hot sauce and spicy food. I can eat relatively spicy food (thanks to my husband, who has an amazing ability to eat super spicy food), but refuse to put any type of hot sauce on my food. I like siracha and mayonnaise mixed together as a sandwich spread, but not much else! HAHA! It’s always great seeing you over at H54F!! Thanks for joining us every week. Hope you had a fabulous weekend!
