Five For Friday on a Sunday

Happy Sunday, friends!

I was going to post about all the stuff I did this weekend.  It's all random.  Then, I remembered that I didn't link up with Doodle Bugs on Friday.  Why?  Because I was a slacker who didn't take enough random pictures of what I've been doing.  Summer life...relaxing with almost no worries.  I will be remembering to take pictures this week!

So, I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs for her Five for Friday linky.   

So, here are some of the things that I did YESTERDAY.  I had a busy day.

Number 1: I realized how much of a loser I am.  I always thought that the "Mommy Brain" was a myth. I've been waiting for all of my "smartness" to come back.  I blogged last week about forgetting my anniversary.  Update...I've forgotten something else.  LOL!  I decided to hop on the "Instagram train".  I went to register and it said that that my email already has an account. I have them send me my password.  And guess what...I made an account within days of Brayden being born a year and a half ago.  There was not any pictures except for my profile picture (one of my favorites of me and Brayden the day after he was born).  I FORGOT all about it.  

So, I plan on using my Instagram account as a mixture of teaching and personal.  Click here to follow me on Instagram. Or just type in my username using the app on your smart phone (jhunter0724).  There's only three pictures up right now.

Number 2: my blogging friend Amanda from Teaching Maddneness shared a cool new app on her Instagram page.  It's called PIP Camera. It's so much fun to play with.  Go download it from the app store now. It's FREE! Oh the fun things I can do with this with my new batch of kiddos next year. 


Number 3: My husband I went on a date to celebrate our forgotten wedding anniversary.  We went to a restaurant called Southern Culture Kitchen and Bar.  It was delicious. I had the Fried Yard Bird (essentially a chicken fried steak with sawmill gravy) with mashed potatoes and cole slaw. Then, I ordered dessert.  She asked if I wanted some banana pudding and this country gal had to get her some banana pudding.  First, my husband I have been together for 10 years.  He has never been shared dessert with me.  EVER!  When this come up, we both gobbled it up.  It was warm banana pudding.  Eric said it reminded him of his great-grandmother's banana pudding.  It was that good!  :-)

Number 4: I finally opened up my Cameo.  It has been sitting on the desk in my house since Christmas.  Since we had a date night, I thought it would be a great time to figure out how to use this thing since my munchkin' was spending the night with his grandma.  I've been too scared to open it.  I'm not good at putting stuff together, and for some reason was terrified of breaking my new Cameo.  FYI...I've begged my husband to help me for months and he just hasn't yet.  It wasn't until I opened it up...he saw me struggling to figure it out (hehehe)....that we got it all hooked up.  I'm going to be honest, it took some trial and error to get it working right.  So, my first project was SIMPLE.  I used some vinyl to add Brayden's name to the door.  It's not as big as I wanted.  I'm going to keep working on it. I've got to figure out how to add my own images for it to cut out....

 I can't wait to use it to decorate my classroom! :-) That part I do no how to do.  

Number 5: I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend!  I'm going to go get my munchkin'.  He's only spent the night with his grandma a handful of times.  I miss him like crazy!  

Lots of love,
