Five For Friday!

I feel like I have been missing this week!  My mother in-law has been in town all week and we have been keeping ourselves busy! 
Today I am going to link up with  Doodle Bugs Teaching for her five for Friday Linky Party!!! 

Number 1:
Cooper River Bridge
If you have ever visited Charleston, South Carolina then I am sure you have seen or heard of the Cooper River Bridge.  Every year they host an annual bridge run which attracts around 40,000 runners and walkers from all around the world.  It is a gorgeous bridge and I am lucky enough to live close enough to it that I can walk/run it whenever I want.  This week my mother in-law and I have been walking the bridge every morning!  It is such a great walk as you are right over the water and the view is beautiful! 

Number 2:
Today my mother in-law and I are going to get pedicures because we have a wedding to go to tomorrow afternoon.  This has to be one of my favorite things to do!  I love freshly painted toes.  They always look so much better then if I try to do it myself.  It is such a treat to have you legs massaged and your toes painted perfectly!

Number 3:
Wednesday I was lucky enough to spend some time at the beach.  We headed over to the Isle of Palms and spent a few hours relaxing and working on our tans!  I LOVE going to the beach and haven't had a lot of time to go this year even though I only live 15 minutes away!!!  My goal for the rest of the summer is to go at least 2 times a week.  We will see if that happens!

Number 4:
This weekend my husband and I will be celebrating our one year anniversary!  I cannot believe it has already been one year!  We are going to celebrate by going out to dinner at one of my favorite restaurants 82 Queen.  The food is always amazing and I love the atmosphere especially in their outside courtyard!  I will fill you in more once we go!  I may even put my dress back on just for fun :)

Number 5:
I have finally finished my common core sight word activities!  I feel like I have been working on these units forever and I have finally finished!  I created 4 separate units which cover each of the 4 9 weeks of Kindergarten high frequency words.  I also combined all 4 of the units into 1 large bundle which can be bought at a discount on my TPT store!  I can't wait to use these activities for morning work and centers!   Head on over to my TPT store if you want to check the units or the bundle out!!

Because I am so happy to have this bundle finished I am going to give away 3 of them for free!  The first 3 people to comment on my post and share something fun they did this week will win a copy of the bundle!  Don't forget to leave your email address :)
I hope everyone else had a wonderful week and I look forward to heading over to Doodle Bugs Teaching to see what everyone else is up to!

    1. Thanks! Charleston is such a great place to live! I don't think we will ever leave :)
      Check your email for your freebie! I have to send it in multiple emails because the file is so big!

  5. Something fun I did this week was to watch my son play in a LAX game. I love Charleston. In fact that is where my husband and I celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary. It is now been 15 years. We went to a restaurant on the Isle of Palm and I had the best lobster ever. (until that night I always thought it was suppose to be chewy). We stayed at the Governor's Inn and loved it. Congrats on your anniversary.


    1. Aww thats great that you spent your first anniversary here! I feel so lucky to live in such a beautiful place! I was just over at the Isle of Palms yesterday! I bet you ate at the Boat House.
      Check your email for your freebie!! I will have to send it in multiple emails due to the file size :)
