High Five For Friday!

Woot Woot......It's Friday!  Man, it didn't come soon enough this week.  Linking up with Lauren over at From My Grey Desk Blog for High Five for Friday.

1.  My grandma had surgery this past week and everything went very well which makes me one happy granddaughter.  Here is a picture of my grandparents with their great-grandkids.......how stinkin' cute are my grandparents?

2.  My hubby and I went for a trip to see our very best friends without our kiddos.  They live a couple hours away so we don't get to see them often.  It was a great weekend filled with many laughs.  Here is a picture from the last time we were there.  I don't know why we didn't take any pictures this time.

Also, during our trip, our besties bought us "My Favorite Muffin" muffins.......Oh...My.....Goodness.  They were delicious!!!!

3. During said trip, Emily and I got a little crafty.  Her idea and I was along for the ride.  As mentioned previously, I like to say I am crafty, but I am not good at finishing projects :)  Here is the wreath we made for her front door.  I was so inspired that I decided to get the materials to make one for myself.  Although, I haven't started that project yet, but I will SOON! ;)

We hadn't added a bow yet at this point.

4.  I have decided I am really liking the owl trend so I picked this little guy up for myself.  He was a steal at $7.  Isn't he adorable?  I found a lot of good buys this week while trying to fancy up my house ;)

5.  I went to an awesome Kagan cooperative learning coaching workshop.  It was fabulous and got me all pumped for improving my cooperative learning in my classroom.  I am sure I will be posting about it soon :)

What are your high five for Friday?  Head on over to From My Grey Desk Blog and link up with Lauren.  Have a great weekend!
