Five For Friday

Usually Friday is one of my favorite days of the week because it means the weekend is here, but this week it means that Spring Break is coming to an end :(  Breaks always go by so fast and I don't ever seem to get accomplished all the things I want to get done!  I'm excited to link up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday!!

Be sure to follow our blog while you are here!! 
Here are my 5 randoms for this week.

I've spent a good portion of my week working on creating "Mousekeeping Envelopes" for orders from my Etsy store "A Little Red Bird Designs".  These fun envelopes are used to put your tips in for the mousekeeping staff.    I definitely love creating new designs!

To end our spring break right, we are throwing a sale in our TPT stores!  Enjoy 20% off of all our products and no code to remember at check out!!  Be sure to leave feedback so you can enjoy those TPT credits at your purchases!!

We moved into our new house the middle of January.  As the weather is (barely) warming up, we realized that we need a grill!!  So, this week we went shopping for a grill and a vacuum cleaner.  Exciting spring break, I'm tellin' ya!  
I didn't realized we'd have to put both of them together.  That took awhile, but the husband did a great job!  And the first set of steaks we grilled were delicious!
Jessie, our house guest for the week, was hard at work supervising!

One thing I love are M&Ms!  They are a fav of mine and my husband's.  Well, he discovered a new M&M flavor - birthday cake.  Yes - birthday cake!!  He read online that they weren't supposed to be out till May, but he found some at a local store and they are delicious!!  If you love chocolate and M&Ms, you MUST try them!!
We also discovered Mega M&Ms at Walmart today.  Yummm!

Some randomness . . . . The husband and I love to watch college basketball.  We are big Illinois fans, but our Illini didn't make the tournament this year . . . so sad.  We have spent our last couple weekends watching the March Madness Tournament and like most people, my bracket had a lot of upsets!  However, my final 8 is looking good so far and I gotta cheer for the Big 10 (even if Illinois didn't make it), so I chose Michigan State to go all the way!!
The snow has finally melted!!  Now, if it would just warm up that would be nice!

Hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend!!
