Five For Friday


This has been a busy week and as I sit down to recap it all I can’t help but be excited about how much got done and all of the great things ahead for next week!

On Sunday, my husband and I celebrated our 18th anniversary.  It’s hard to believe that much time has passed.  I can’t wait to see what God has in store for us!

On Monday, I drove my husband to the airport.  He spent the week at the Fellowship of Christian Athletes headquarters in Kansas City becoming a 3-Dimensional Coaching certified presenter.  I am excited to see where this public speaking journey takes him!

Monday afternoon I met my friend Cassandra from Mrs. 3rd Grade for lunch!  She is the first blogger I met in “real life,” and I am blessed to call her my friend!

This week the TpT Seller Challenge started.  If you haven’t joined yet, head over to Third in Hollywood to get all of the details.  It has really motivated me to get some things checked off my to-do list.  Here are my stats from the beginning of the challenge.  I’m excited to see what they will look like at the end!

The first week’s challenge was Makeover Madness.  I have been wanting to make over some of my earlier products for a while now and this was the perfect motivation to get started.  I gave 2 of my best sellers a much needed face lift and I’m super excited about how they turned out.  If you already own Literal and Non-Literal Meanings make sure you download the revised file.  There are A LOT of changes to that one!

This week was also full of dance mom responsibilities.  We have recital this weekend and dress rehearsal this evening.  I was running around picking up last minute costume items, dance shoes, and steaming costumes.  Dance keeps us crazy busy and it will be even crazier this year with Pom at the high school added to the mix.  I wouldn’t have it any other way.  My girls are learning amazing time management skills, they hang out with a great group of girls, they have something at school to be a part of but they also have strong connections outside of school and they are engaged in a ton of physical activity.  Not to mention how much they are in love with dance.  They will literally dance for 8 hours (between Pom and studio practice) and then come home and dance in their dance room at home.  There are nights I have to tell my 16 year to STOP dancing and get to bed.  People think we are crazy for letting them stay with studio even though they are on the Pom team now, but neither one of my girls is ready to give it up.  So, I will stick it out with them.  I will run all over town getting costumes made and rhinestoned and spending crazy amounts of money on dance shoes.  The window of them being able to dance like this and me being able to be dance mom is getting smaller and I am going to soak up every minute of it.  Dancing makes them happy and they are learning to give their all to something they love. 


Have a blessed Friday friends!


  1. I just visited Mrs. 3rd Grade and thought that picture looked familiar :) Your makeovers look great! I especially like the Literal and Non Literal Meanings.

  2. Sounds like you had a lovely week!! I am going to have to pop over to that Seller Challenge, I have seen it on my social sites but not had the chance to check it out yet - my to do list is so long i'm not sure I can add anymore to it - eek!

  3. Hi Jennifer! Happy anniversary! My husband and I will celebrate 19 years in December. I love your take on being a dance mom. My kids activities sometimes have me running more than I'd like, but I'm trying to 'embrace the day!' They are both in high school now...and the time goes so fast.
