Friday 5

Okay so I originally wrote this post when I got home at 2am last night and in my tired state forgot to press publish. But that's probably for the best because when I read it again this morning it made exactly zero sense, so here's my new amended Friday Post. Linking up with LE and Whitney today.

1. A 4th grade class in Massachusetts is hoping to receive Valentine's from all 50 states plus as many foreign countries as possible. They're going to be using math and geography when they sort them at their counting party on Valentine's Day. Isn't that such a cute idea instead of the traditional Valentine's Day classroom party. I found out about the project when the teacher reached out to my local newspaper because they hadn't received any from Mississippi yet. I'm hoping to have a chance to run out and pick up a card to send. If you want to send one too here's the address!

Mrs Frank's 4th Grade Class
Indian Brook Elementary School
1181 State Road
Plymouth, MA 02360

2. This freak cold snap was beyond bizarre. We didn't get snow here, but we did get plenty of ice. Luckily I was off on the day it was the worst so I didn't have to even leave the house. My aunt in Birmingham spent Tuesday night in a Book A Million at the mall because the roads were so bad, so I consider myself very lucky that I was only stuck in my house.

3. If you have some free time, this is an interesting read. It's by a former TSA Agent talking about the blog he anonymously wrote about working for the TSA. It reaffirmed my belief that you should always be extra nice when going through the security lines at airports.

4. I'm asking for some prayers for a special intention. I don't really want to get too into it, but I've had some things weighing heavily on my heart and mind this week and could use some extra prayers and well wishes.

5. If you can listen to this song without thinking about BridesMaids we can't be friends.

  1. If you want a sweet red wine (like you wont even notice its wine) try Sweet Walters or Love My Goat. I am a fan of a good cabernet sauvignon (usually called a cab) my fav is made by Red Tree. All of which should be found in Mississippi =) I started out a white wine only drinker and slowly moved over.

  2. OMG to sweet with the valentines for the class!!!! Such a neat idea :)


I think of every blog post as a conversation. I hope you'll join in and leave a comment so I'm not just talking to myself.
