5 for Friday

I'm linking up with 5 for Friday tonight. 

And here are my 5:

Here are some things I am Loving with a capital L! Some I own and others I want to own.  
Necklace and Earrings: Kendra Scott, Watch: Michael Kors, Leopard Print Bracelet: t & j Designs,
Leopard Print iPhone Cover: J Crew (no longer available), Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush,   Mac Lipstick (Candy Yum-Yum), Boots: Hunter

I'm so excited! Who would have thought 10 years ago that I would be giddy over a refrigerator, but I am. We got a new fridge and I'm in Love! It's ginormous!!! Draw after drawer, three drawers in the freezer, spaces for kiddos to get their stuff easily.  I seriously open it and smile.  I know, it's weird, but I'm happy.  
This week we've been learning all about economics. We started with Producers and Consumers. Then we talked about Goods and Services and what careers provide goods and which provide services.  We also learned all about scarcity. Yes, in first grade, we learned about scarcity.  Then today students were given 12 dollars in Cupid Cash so they could purchase items to decorate their Valentine bags.  I give them 12 because in first grade our magic number is 10, so they can spend their first 2 dollars and then slowly subtract from the remaining 10.  
Here is our store:
 Here are my little people shopping to decorate their bags. The fancy stuff was expensive and there were fewer of those items. This is how we learned about scarcity in real life.

Tonight I put together Landon's Valentines.  He's so excited to give his friends his bubbles.
The Valentine printable is from U Create Crafts. 

So if you don't already know my friend Rachelle from What the Teacher Wants, then go check her out. I'm so proud of how much weight she's lost and she's inspired a bunch of us to get healthier. My new favorite is TRX! Have y'all done this? It's so hard, but dang is it a great strength workout.
