Miscellany Monday

Write random and link up!!

::Pinterest Party::
was a success as always!

For this particular craft party, jewelry making was a popular theme.
Hair Ties made from baby headbands. 
(Hobby Lobby or Dollar General)
Clay bangles. 
(Colored Clay from Hobby Lobby)
Washer Necklace
 (Washers from Lowe's, Ribbon and Metallic Spray Paint from Hobby Lobby)
Chandelier Necklace
(Gold Chain, Hooks, and Paint from Hobby Lobby)
Wrap Bracelets 4
(Gold Chain from Michaels, Hooks from Hobby Lobby, and Suede Cord from Michaels) 
I love black and gold together so I plan on getiting lots of use out of my new washer necklace and wrap bracelet.  :)

Along with crafts, we try to make new recipes from Pinterest to bring to our parties.
We had some amazing food this time around.
I made little bite-size S'mores that were delicious.
We also had...
Talk about a yummy spread!!

::Relay for Life::
Our Relay for Life event was Friday night.  It was so rewarding seeing all of our hard work come together.  My team had a pretty good turnout and we raised a lot of money.  We had pizza and balloons donated to sell and I had also had T-shirts made.  My sister and I did face painting and we also had cornhole.  Our community raised close to $30,000.
This was a cause near and dear to my particular school because we have had a couple of teachers with cancer this school year and we also have a third grader that had cancer this year.
It was really amazing what this little girl's classmates raised in honor or her.
I cannot believe that there are only 4 more Monday's of school before summer break.
May will be a busy, busy month.  There is something going on every weekend, including tons of IEP meetins and transition meetings.  I think I can, I think I can.
I finished the first 50 Shades of Grey...OMG so good!
Someone instagramed this picture the other day saying that he would make a good Christian Grey and OMG I couldn't agree more.
I started 50 Shades Darker Saturday night.
To come...
50 Shades Freed
The Fame Game
There are so many great books out right now!!
Speaking of, I am going to get in bed and read right now.
Happy Monday lovelies!

Who is that actor?!?! He would most definitely make a great Christian Grey. I actually read the second book first, but I'm almost done with the first one, then I can't wait to read the third! Woohoo1 Also, I'm so impressed with all your Pinterest crafts! That necklace is gorgeous! We need a proper catch-up soon please!

So glad your event went well. Umm 4 Mondays til summer break, are you taking the summer off? I so wish we could all have summer break like the kids.

Love that series. Just wait! It only gets better.


Jess said...

I love that you had a Pinterest party-so clever! BTW-I'm almost finished with 50 Shades of Grey and CAN'T wait to go to book #2. And whoever that guy is in that picture would be the perfect Christian Grey. I know they are looking at Ryan Gosling and I love him, but he wouldn't be a good Christian. Agree?

Jamie said...

Those little s'mores look sooo good!! Also, that picture DOES remind me of Christian from 50 shades! I started it the other day and have such a hard time putting it down!!

Have a good week :)

Hmm it looks like your website ate my first comment (it
was super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I had written and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.

I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to everything. Do you have any tips for beginner blog writers? I'd really appreciate it.

Hi! I could have sworn I've been to this blog before but after browsing through some of the post I realized it's new to me.
Anyhow, I'm definitely glad I found it and I'll be book-marking and checking back often!
