Another Friday, another Friday Favorites and Five on Friday!

one.
I have to say at this time of year I'm pretty bored with my clothes and just ready for warm days and spring to arrive.  Since Gap is 40% off regular price this caught my eye (although I really wish it was long sleeve, and not 3/4 length.)

And I've had this dress in my cart for a few weeks (again 3/4 length sleeve?  why?)

If only warm weather was in the forecast...

I ended up making the Valentines for the teachers at Carter's schools.  Graphic designer I am not.  So I googled Valentine's fonts and downloaded #1 and #12. 

 Do you think it would be socially acceptable to always make a heart instead of an O?

mommy school

Carter goes to a Montessori school and I love many things about it.  I'm so impressed with some things he talks about learning and practical life skills and social skill growth but being a teacher myself, I worry a bit that they aren't pushing certain skills.  So I decided on Mondays and Tuesdays when he doesn't have school and Reid is taking a nap it's full-on mommy school (for 30 minutes!)  

Just like all of my teacher-mom friends have said their kids want nothing to do with them helping them.  So I've had to pull out all the stops and we're doing all kinds of fun and multi-sensory activities!  I'll post more about it after a few weeks.

And on a similar topic I thought this article was interesting this week too.  It's about how in Finland Kindergarteners aren't expected to sit and do seat work, but instead are expected to play.  I absolutely agree.

I've been planning to make Football Oreo Truffles for Sunday.

But I couldn't find where I pinned them (years ago) so I searched for them on Pinterest and these popped up.  And these may be even cuter...

    1. Seriously- why 3/4 length? Are you sore today from your leg workout yesterday- did it lull him into a good sleep?! Hope so!

  4. That dress is super cute! I'd wear it with an army green jacket and riding boots until it got warmer! If you make those helmets, you have to let us know how they turn out. So fun!

    1. So I guess I should just buy it since it could definitely be versatile!!! We'll see if I attempt the helmets! Somehow I think mine wouldn't look nearly that cute!

  8. I actually like the 3/4 sleeves. And we love our Montessori school too. I try to work on things with Liam at home as well, but Naptime is all over the map lately. So instead we just color since o am hooked on my adult coloring book.
