Five For Friday!

This is my first time linking up with Doodle Bugs for her Five for Friday Linky!

But also want to link up with Simpson's Superstars because she is just so sweet to me and I adore her! Her linky is about sharing how your Valentine's Day went! 

I kicked off my Valentine's Week with a burst blood vessel in my eye!  (I just woke up with it!) So I spent my Valentine's Day like a pirate! Aaaargh!

The kids were seriously grossing out so my girl, Wersty came to my rescue with a patch from her pirate library lessons.  We covered it in hearts for Valentine's Day!
I apologize for the next picture but I have to show you what I woke up to!
 I feel nothing but it looks FREAKY!

We had a fabulous V-Day and the most hilarious part was when Tony came home bearing gifts and one of baby girl's balloons was in Spanish.  We asked him why he chose this one, and he did a double take said he thought it said, "Be my princess."  We all laughed so hard!!

 Tears were rolling out of my eye patch.

Now every other word we say happens to be BESAME PRINCESA in a super thick accent. 

Another highlight of V-day was Cupcake's Craft!  It was the HIT of the day!

We are beak deep in our penguin studies so today they measured and created these cuties to exact height and we compared and contrasted the rockhopper to the king.  

Finally at drive ups, (after school duty) I wasn't wearing the patch and other first graders in my care were questioning my "bloody eyeball".  One of my own students spoke up and said, "That's what I have been dealing with all week!"  I apologized for her having to "deal with my eye" all week.  ;)



  1. That first grader's comment was too funny! Love the gumball machine valentine!

  7. I had that same thing happen with my eye a few times--I was told I could have sneezed too hard or blew my nose to hard and that could have caused it! Ever since then, if I feel I sneezed too hard, I check my eyes! HA! I hope it clears up soon, but it's just a waiting game....Good thing you have that eyepatch! :) Your poor kids having to deal with it and all-ha ha ha....

  8. Hahahahahaha! Kids are hilarious. I love how Teri's gumball crafts turned out. Besame Princesa!

  9. The eyepatch was such a smart idea! I had that happen to me near the beginning of the school year. Mine lasted for two months. I hope yours goes away much sooner, but even if it doesn't your kids will start to get used to it.

  22. OMG! I am so glad I am not the only teacher who gets burst blood vessels in the eyes! I get them about twice a year and it is always funny to see my kids reactions! It is definitely a way to make sure they keep their eyes on me! My hubby calls it my DRACULA eye! Lol
