Friday Five

This week has seemed a little rougher than the others so far this school year.  It is the first week I've had students every day, and I feel like I am falling behind already.  I've had an early morning meeting every single day and the past two nights have had commitments until late.  So, instead of going to my early morning workout (which I will feel guilty about and pay for later), I'm home trying to clean off the counter and the pile of dishes in the sink.  Apparently if I don't do it, no one else even notices it.  

And, I haven't had a lot of time to shop online or even browse.  I've found two fun tech. sites, which I can use for work, so at least I'm being productive that way.

Here's what's caught my eye:

I think the little tassels on the bottom are what I like the most, but the Prana website has lots of great clothes if this sweater isn't for you.

And I love the cute hats that come out for fall and winter, even though I rarely purchase them.

3.  Peanutize Me

I am getting excited for the Peanuts movie that is coming out in November, and bookmarking this site to use with kids at school so they can Peanutize themselves.

4.  Cable Knit Sweater

I feel like cable knit sweaters are a wardrobe staple that never go out of style. The Gap is having all kinds of sales right now which are worth checking out.

5.  7 Little Words

When I was talking to my friend Kristin the other night her phone kept dinging which I had to ask about. Turns out she was playing 7 Little Words which I promptly downloaded on my phone after the conversation. I love words games!  I just looked at the website this morning and need to check it out a little more because it appears that I might be able to use this with students.

So, that's it for this week.  Maybe I'll find a little more free time in the coming week.  

What's caught your eye this past week?

7 Little Words is one I'll have to check out. I'll an iPhone scrabble addict and love word games as well. Thanks for sharing and enjoy your weekend.

I did the Peanut thing and it saved my image with just a head and no body! What is that supposed to mean? Probably depicting how I feel these days. LOL.

I can't get over how much work is butting into my "me" time these days. I've never gone this long without some down time but I am taking 5 weeks off between October and January because I am at my vacation cap and need to use it or lose it.
