Friday Favorites: Goodbye January

It's the last Friday in January!
This month seemed very long, which is a pleasant surprise. 
Most months seem to fly by these days, so I'm glad to enjoy a nice long month. 
I tried to soak in every moment of the new year. 
Today I'm linking up with ErikaNarci and Andrea for some Friday Favorites. 
Grab their graphic and linkup with your favorites from the week.


This is a favorite from last Friday. 
I wouldn't describe myself as being very political.
I really don't know who does what, but we watched the inauguration in my classorom on Friday. 
As President Trump raised his right hand to take the oath of office one of my students stood up and turned to the rest of the class and said "stand up!"

I was so proud of him for taking that leap of faith and being a great leader. 
It gave me goosebumps to see such a bold act of leadership. 
The students watched and listened and when President Trump was done, they all applauded and sat down. 

There's a lot of contention with this election, but I was proud to see a great shining moment in my week.

We went to our local Amish Country over the weekend. 
We used some gift certificates and got some meat and cheese. 
We walked up further than we normally do to have lunch at a little restaurant.
On our way we saw a sign for cupcakes!!
I had to stop in. 
This little shop tucked around back had these super cute cupcakes!
They had been there for 4 years, and I had no clue!

I got s'mores! yum!

And Alex got salted caramel!

James Harrison 

Last Sunday night was not a great night. 
My favorite team-the Steelers-didn't make it the Super Bowl. 
I grew up watching the Steelers with my dad when I was younger. 
I've grown to love it more and more with each year. 

This guy right here is my favorite! 
I used to be a Polamalu fan. 
He gave 100% and was always on top of his game.
However, this Ohio native and Kent State alum (just like me!) might have taken his place. 
There's no one who works out as hard or as much as this guy. 
After the game the week before they landed in PA around 4 and he went straight to the 4 AM!!! Right after they just played a game that started at 8 PM!


He's the guy I'd want on my team!

I was so happy to see this post earlier in the week! 
He's coming back for more!
Can't wait for 2017-2018 season!

This weekend we are gearing up for some rest and relaxation!
Everyone at school is getting sick, so I'm going to try to boost my immune system and just enjoy the simple winter days!


  1. Okay, those cupcakes have my mouth watering!!! Have THE BEST weekend!!!!

  2. Agreed- those cupcakes look awesome! Eat a spoonful of honey to keep those germs away- I swear by it!
