Favorite Pins Friday!!

What a beautiful Friday!! It's pouring down rain, but I got to sleep in till 11!! Hubby and I hit up Denny's Diner for breakfast, the shoe store for new gym shoes, socks, and bags, and now I"m here ready to link up with The First Grade Parade for Favorite Pins Friday!

I would love for you to follow me on pinterest! Just click here:

I don't know about you but I spend WAY too much time on pinterest. I actually 'like' things more than I repin them. For some reason it's easier to click the heart, than to click repin, and choose a board. One less step. Lazy, I know. But give me a break, I'm not on summer vacation like the rest of you!
Anywho, these are my favorite pins from this week!


teacher stool
This stool from Laurie Cole Designs is my inspiration for my classroom stool. Without the cowboy theme! Unfortunately, the pin doesn't actually link anywhere.

I'm definitely going to get some of these custom stamps made! This pin is from Kinder-Craze. Love her!

Blog Post:  "Empower Your Students with Doable Data"  See examples of age-appropriate data collection and goal setting with early readers.  {Creating Readers and Writers}
Love this pin too, about do-able data! It's from Andrea Knight.

Dr. Jean & Friends Blog: TABLES WEARING SHOES??? Students can practice tying their shoes when finished with an activity

fifteen (summer) crock pot meals
This pin is full of crock pot recipes perfect for summer. Just what I need!

Grilled Greek Chicken on skewers with an Avocado Tzatziki dipping sauce. This is a must try, easy dinner recipe!
I love our local greek restaurant, and I love avocado, so I can't wait to try this one!

 tortilla soup 1
This looks delicious too, look at that avocado on top!


Love this casual look, especially the rosettes on the tank and the wide leg pants!

Love this
I love a good maxi dress and the coral touches make this outfit just perfect.

I love this look for a casual Friday.

Ruffled + Pleated Chiffon Dress
I loved this dress so much I immediately ordered it! I have several weddings coming up it would be great for.

Coach crossbody bag- love love love this!!
I've been needing a new purse for awhile. I love this one! I tried to order it but the pin leads to the Coach website. This is an older bag and it's not on there. I did eventually find (and order it) on Ebay!

This is a great post full of moving tips!

Hope you found something useful, I'm off to look at everyone else's pins!!


  1. Love the clothes! I haven't started using Pinterest for fashion yet. I worry about the costs of the clothes! I am working on my teacher stool as we speak...waiting for some paint to dry. Can't wait to see how yours turns out!

  6. Rachelle, I could eat avocados every day! Thank you for the pins. Also, the shoe-tying on the table legs is just so creative. Don't you just love Dr. Jean? When I grow up (already 44), I want to be Dr. Jean. :)

    Have a beautiful Sunday!
