I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for five for Friday. You select five random things from your week to share. To link up go to her blog at the link above.

Today I am going to pick up my preview for my wedding invitations. Last week on my five for Friday I posted a picture of some invitations I liked from Wedding Paper Divas, but I am trying to be a bit thrifty(because who doesn't like a deal). I found another set on Etsy I LOVED, but they were around $5.50 each. YIKES!! That's over a $1000 bucks for invitations (I think not). I decided to buy some clip art and design them myself. Here is what I came up with.

Yes this is only half of the card. I didn't want all the personal information given out :)

I will also be stopping by a local store in downtown to complete my wedding registry. It is a cutesy little store that sells a lot of Glory Haus products. How cute is this?

I am still working towards my fitness goal of four times a week strength training and three times a week cardio. I am working off of a plan I found online and it is killer!

I'm so excited in a nerdy way. My grandmother called me this week and said since your getting married I thought you might could use some extra cookware and I am cleaning mine out. She told me to come and get a set of Visions that she has had since the early 1980s. Ok in my mind I thought Visions what is that? So of course I googled it and voila it appeared. Yes I know what you're thinking (how grandma is that). But no dear friends I love retro and my kitchen loves these new pieces. As long as I can keep Wes from breaking it.

Last, but not least, our report cards go home today. Now let me ask this does everyone do standards based report cards or is it just me. It can be the bane of my existence. I kid you not I have what seems to be a million standards to grade per children times the 27 students I have, so you get a billion total. I get that my math my seem off a bit, but that is the point. It is toooooo much especially when the parents don't know how to cipher what it says. Don't worry I cropped out the student info, but here is just one page of the report cards and there are three pages for each student. The bottom two pictures are the rubrics for math and ela. 


  1. You'll soon be a Mrs. Palmer, like me! In fact, I am also named Suzy! So crazy! Your invites are beautiful, btw.

  2. OMG! I thought when I got the email that I had a comment that it was my future MIL. Hahaha that is great that ya'll have the same name. Thank you for the compliment. I've been working hard.
