My 1st Ever Five for Friday!

Linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for my first ever Five for Friday! 
#1 - Parent/Teacher conferences were this week in my district. Teaching all day on Wednesday, then staying until 8:30pm conferencing = EXHAUSTING. To treat myself for the looong days, I've been going to Dutch Bros. each morning to use a gift card a lovely parent gave me last week. (A weird fact about me = I HATE coffee. Hate the taste, the smell, everything. I know. This isn't natural. So what did I get? A large hot chocolate! Sugar wakes you up too! muahaha)
#2 - I'm LOVING my new summer TOMS. I always struggle with finding cute but comfortable shoes to wear to work when it gets warm. Not a fan of sandals because inevitably my toes will be stepped on 1 MILLION TIMES throughout the day (no pedi can outlast firsties!). Wore them, loved them, ordered two more colors. haha
#3 - SO excited for the Creative Mathematics workshop I just signed up for in August! I keep hearing how wonderful Kim Sutton is, so I'm joining a group of 10 co-workers to attend her 2-day Building a Strong Elementary Math Program seminar. I haven't been to a workshop in ages! My co-worker and I are already scheming about writing grants next year to buy all of Kim's math resources!
#4 - Tomorrow is Jessica Stanford's Magical Product Swap! I swapped products with Mr. Giso of 
Mr. Giso's Room to Read and will be posting about it tomorrow afternoon. A sneak peek of my kiddos in action:
#5 - My co-teacher and a parent were both raving to me about The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. I'm excited to check them out because I haven't had a good book to read in ages. I'm debating just buying the boxed set. Has anyone else read these books? 
BONUS #6 - The lovely Jen of Runde's Room is having a sale in her TpT store this weekend to help raise money for a little boy with cancer. 100% of her proceeds will go to his family. I know I'll be checking out her store! It's a win-win - getting awesome products and helping out a family who really needs it.
