St. Patrick's Day 5

Happy St. Patty's Day!  Don't let the leprechauns get too silly today!

Well, I am a bit late on my 5, so here they are today


1.  Today is my last day of spring break.  I had a ton of fun with my family.  We biked a lot, played outside, spring cleaned the girl's rooms, and lots of other things.  Not an ounce of school stuff was completed...just the way it should be during break!  One fun thing we did, was take new and improved pictures of me and the girls for our "extras" work possibilities this summer.  I have us signed up to be considered for movie extras here in NM.  We have a ton of westerns and military movies filmed in our area.  FOR EXAMPLE- one of the hottest fellas ever was recently here filming a little bit away from my home area- Johnny Depp.  Yes, you heard me.  He was filming Lone Ranger with Armie Hammer.  
Then shortly after that was my other favorite hot fella, Mark Wahlberg!  He had 2 movies here in a row...Lone Survivor and 2 Guns (which also had Denzel Washington).  Wow... was it fun to hear about all this stuff.  Anyway, we are on a website to be considered for extras work, but we needed to update as the pics were old.  Here are a couple of the pics.

2.  Today I have all items in my store 20% off.  Don't forget to check out the other's who are having a sale too.  Click {HERE} to go to the post about the sale.

3.  I have offered to a few ladies to be part of their giveaways.  More info to come on that soon.  Yay, fun!

4.  With the weather warming up in my area, I realized I needed to paint my toes!!!  I broke out some cute sandal heels I have.  I was putting them on when the strap crumbled into pieces...has that ever happened to you?  First time for me.  Obviously, they were way old!  OH NO, now that means I have to get another pair of shoes.  Yay!  I've been looking at all the new styles and really like the look of these.
BUT- I'm I'll see if I can't find something like it at Payless or Shoes On a Shoes String.

5.  I am back to school tomorrow.  It will be good to see the cute little faces of my students again.  I have a lot to do from here until the school year ends.  I have 10 weeks to cram it all in!!!  Wish me luck.  We also have our testing week coming up very quickly.  Yikes!!!  Too much to do in very little time.  

Hope your week is great!


  1. Hello from a fellow Amy!! I popped over from the Doodle Bugs Friday Five link-up...I just linked up today, too!! I don't know if I'll ever be able to get a blog post up in time to link-up on Friday!!

    How fun to have so many big movie stars filming in your area. Good luck with being an extra!! :)

    Happy Teacher Heaven

    1. Hi other Amy! I know what you mean- I am always late with the linky hook ups.
      It is totally fun for us to have film stars here all the time.
      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Hope you get chosen as an extra soon - how fun would that be?! Hunger Games was shot not too far from here and I had some friends who were "extras" in it!!

    I'm also on the hunt for some new, cute spring shoes! Loving this weather....76 here today! :)

    1. Nice- 76.
      That must have been a neat movie to have made near by.

  3. Your girls are absolutely adorable!! I'm very cheap, too! I won't buy anything if it isn't on major sale. Good luck with getting to be an extra! :)
