Five for Friday!

It's Friday!  It's Friday!  I'm joining Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday.  Here are a few of the things I've been up to this week.

I've been working on some new math games to add to my 1st grade bundle...this has taken me a lot longer than I thought!  There are a lot of 1st grade math standards to work through, but I can't wait to bundle them all together.  For now, they are all available individually, and this week I've added my measurement game!

I'm participating in Project Neon's June Challenge...30 burpees for 30 days!  30 for 30.  What is it?  Well, every day I do 30 burpees.  Katie, from Project Neon, has a great video to show you what it is, if you aren't sure!  They are a lot harder than you might think, especially when you are way out of shape!

Did I mention that Katie is a friend of mine that I played soccer with in college? She is awesome and super motivating!  Click on the image above to see how you can win new sunglasses, tennis shoes, and nutrition items (I feel like by sharing this, it will decrease my chances, but I'd rather everyone enjoy the fun!) by joining in on the June Fitness Challenge.  

This week I got my first big pay out from EBATES and my $10 gift card from Target in the mail!!!

I'm sure a ton of you are already on this EBATES train, but I just signed on, and it's SOOOOO easy!  With all of the wedding gifts and things I'm buying this time of year, I get cash back just for going through their site.  I don't even want to think about how much money I could have gotten back if I'd started this a long time ago!  
For those of you who don't know, if you start at the EBATES website, then go to Kohl's, LOFT, MACYs, etc. you get a percentage back.  Mine was paid to me through PayPal.  I started with a $7.00 payout - I'm happy with that! :)  Oh, and a $10 gift card just for joining!  You can click here to see for yourself how easy it is!  

I wish I had a greener thumb because I really enjoy piddling in my yard, watering my flowers, and planting new plants.  It's so rewarding when color starts to pop all over!  My roses came to life this week!

And tomorrow is one of my great friend's wedding!  I met her at my old school where we had classrooms across the hall from each other.  The baby is going to Mammaw and Pappaw's house for the afternoon/evening, and the hubby and I get a night out to celebrate the lovely couple!  Did I mention earlier that it was wedding season?  This will be 2 of 6 for us!

30 burpees for 30 days!?! Everyday!? You are brave. Those bad boys hurt all over! Good luck!

I would totally be interested in joining! Is there a special way to sign up for the challenge, or do I just Nike it?

So many weddings! We have four this year, and it still feels like so many! I think after this year, we'll be done for a while, though. I'm trying to spread the word - sorry about the shameless plug - that I'm trying to start a new weekly linkup called Sell It Saturday. I thought you may be interested in joining. I just did the first post today! I'd love for you to join in!
