Five For Friday & a Giveaway!

It's time to link with with Doodle Bugs for Five for Friday!  I hope you all had a super week!  As I mentioned last Friday, this was my spring break!  Here's a look at my week!

1.  Earth Day!  I love Earth Day.  It happened to fall over break this year, so I couldn't celebrate with my kids on the actual day.  Sad.  But we did lots of Earthy things last week though!!  Here are a few earthy things I did this week!
My baby veggies (and flowers!)

Sunflowers...I reused a milk carton! :)

I got a new water bottle!  I love glass water bottles :)
I'm reducing waste!
Even Moo loves it!!

Take care of the earth!  Recycle!

2.  My birthday is in May.  That means registering my car and getting it inspected.  Two of the most annoying things ever.  Usually I wait until the last weekend in May to make an appointment for an inspection.  And by then, everyone is booked.  So I'm left calling around to try to find someone who has an open time.  Or I just wait until June.  Oops.  This year I decided to just get it done early!  I got my car inspected, registered, and renewed my license!  Are you impressed?  :)  Well, thanks!  I'm happy it's done, but needless to say it's been an expensive vacation!!

3.  Last weekend, my dad and step-mom had a little dinner get together.  There are lots of us and we don't all see each other very often.  Whenever get get together, I'm always in charge of dessert - my favorite part of every meal! :)  You will soon find out about my obsession love for making cookies, cupcakes, muffins, anything sweet :) 

Here's the yummy cupcakes I made for them!
 A few close ups :)

Who wants a cupcake now?

4.  My boyfriend and I signed up to do a Color Run next month.  I'm not really a runner, but this one looked like so much fun!  So I've been running to get ready for it.  Here's the thing, I hate running outside.  I don't know why!  Put me on a treadmill to run and I'm good to go!  But outside, no.  Don't make me do it!  This from a girl who loves exercising and would give anything to be outside all day, every day.  I know, it's strange!  I can do it, I just hate every second of it.  Except the end, when I hit stop on Map My Run.  

Anyone have any motivation for me?  

I pass this sign on my keeps me going! :)

5.  I finished up my Frog Life Cycle Unit this week!  Here's a peek at what it looks like!  You can also see it here!!  I'm so excited to use it with my kids next week!! I just need to find some tadpoles for our classroom!!
