Five for Friday - Weekly Linky Party

This is my second week participating of this Linky party, and I want to tell you...I really have been giving this Five for Friday a lot of thought. Hope somebody is reading, because really, I've even been  taking quick notes during the week about what to write on Friday. So, lets begin:

This week had a terrible, awful, the worst beginning I could possible imagine! I am sorry to be the carrier of such catastrophic news, but (if you haven't watched the latest episode of Games of Thrones **BIG TIME SPOILER ALERT**: Jon Snow died! I'm still shocked, mourning his loss, as he will be terribly missed!! I just can't believe it!
If you haven't figured it out yet, among other TV shows, I'm also a fan of Game of Thrones, and last Sunday aired the season finale, which like I said was catastrophic! Jon Snow was one of my favorite characters, and now he's gone! What's going to happen with Ghost, his pet wolf?! Who is going to save Westeros from the white walkers?! So many questions...and we won't know the answers any time soon, unless you read the books, of course.

For my number two however, things started to look pretty good this week with the Copa of America: Argentina won against Uruguay, with one goal by Kun Aguero! And what a goal!! Fortunately, if you missed it, you can watch it here:

 I just started using a new Wen hair product which I haven't tried before. I've been a "Wen Girl" for almost two years now, but I really love this new Mandarin Italian Fig Restorative Cleansing Conditioner. Not only smells like heaven must smell, but also I feel my hair feels so good. I live in Florida, and since I use Wen my hair is not frizzy (which with the humidity here, it's really a lot to say!), or dry, and it remains clean longer. Chaz Dean says that friends don't let other friends to use shampoo, so if you are still using it, I would really recommend to give Wen a try. My hair's texture has completely changed since I started using it: that's one thing about these products, you see and feel the difference right from the first use. I will never go back to washing with shampoo! I even bring it with me when I go to the hair salon, so they can wash my hair with it.

Two of my students were on the local news this week! Apparently some of their videos on YouTube went viral, millions of people have already watched them. They are brothers, and they happened to be in my kindergarten class a few years back, first Braeden and then Bennet. They are so cute and absolutely adorable, that I am no surprised at all that so many people watched their videos:  Port-St-Lucie-children-on-a-viral-video Awwww! Aren't they?!Very smart kids, super nice family, I really miss them!

I started slowly to give a fresh look to several of my products on TpT, thanks to the Makeover challenge proposed by TeachCreateMotivate. This is the first update I made to one of my bestsellers:

The Free Sample, also got a face lift:

But this was just the beginning....see? this opened a can of worms, because now I feel like all my products need some updating.
Look at this:

And there is more....but I don't want to bore you with my new project...Yes indeed, I have a HUGE summer project in my hands. What about you?

As always, thanks for reading! Until next post!

    1. Hi,
      If you start watching Games of T, you'll have to start from the beginning of the story....I think it's on demand on HBO. Great show!
