Five for Friday: July 24th

Woah, seriously!? It is FRIDAY?! ... This one went by really fast! Only one more week for me before I am fully BACK IN SCHOOL! Craziness, but I am making sure that I make the most out these last few days (Hence, no blog posts, oops!).

The hubby and I headed to the movies this weekend because it literally rained constantly! We saw the much anticipated Trainwreck and it didn't disappoint! My husband said "Do you want to go see that Lebron James movie?" Haha! Sorry babe, it is a romantic comedy but at least Lebron is in it. Good date night movie or girls night out though. We had fun!
On Monday me and some friends headed out to do a paddle board fitness class! It was so fun and much harder than I expected. We did a lot of core work and then would paddle for cardio in between sets. Needless to say, I felt like it was a good work out and we had a beautiful view. It was well worth the groupon and I would do it again! I am so lucky to have such amazing teacher friends to hang with in the summer! ...well all year, but you know what I mean!

Since we had such a good work out and summer is winding down, we decided we needed to stop at the beer market afterwards. I am sure you will be shocked to hear...IT RAINED. AGAIN. Don't worry though, it didn't ruin our good time!

I did stop and think about school for a minute this week! Last year our team became photo booth obsessed. We did one for western day, 101 day, and many more. Our parents LOVED these pictures! So naturally, I decided we had to have a back to school photo booth! That inspired materials for our open house photo booth and I also created photo booths for second-fifth grade as well. I thought this could also make a cute beginning of the year gift for parents too! Below is an example of what the set up could look like!

So my sweet friend Darby that I work with has a little boy and twin girls. We decided to we were going to take them to Jump Jam (indoor trampoline park) this week. When we arrived they were closed for a field trip!! It was raining (shocker) so we didn't have many options and ended up at the Chick-fil-a play place! My other friend brought her nephew and we had a blast with the little ones!

I don't have pictures for my number five because it is the adventure that is on the books for today! We are heading out to a drive through safari zoo! I will definitely post about this next week because I am guaranteeing some CRAZY pictures.  I am a little nervous to roll through this place in my car but YOLO! Afterwards we are heading to the pool! One of our teacher friends has to go back Monday so we are having an early end of summer celebration with her! 

Enjoy your weekend friends! Cheers!


  1. I think you must live in Knoxville, the Beer Market & paddleboarding look very familiar - I'm a Knoxvillian as well! I love meeting other bloggers close to home!

  2. I start school in one more week as well. I can't believe that summer is over! It looks like you had a great week! Enjoy your last week before the craziness that we call a job starts back again!

  3. I want to see that movie too! We only really see movies with explosions around here so...Redbox maybe. And I LOVE your photo booth ideas. I may have to bring that up this year. 😀

  4. I'm so glad that you're enjoying your last few days of summer! You sure are packing a lot of amazing memories into your remaining weeks!! :-) I love that you went paddleboarding, I've always wanted to try that!! Your photo booth idea is so great! I'd love to see pictures of how you've set it up in the past!
    Thank you so much for sharing your 5 with us, you totally rock!!

  5. I really want to see that movie!!! Sounds amazing! I have paddle boarded in FL but I am not sure how I would do a workout on it!! Sounds like quite an amazing week! Enjoy the rest of your summer :) Thanks for sharing!

  6. Kristen, the hubby and I are going to see Trainwreck today, just bought the tickets actually! I'm glad that it is getting good reviews. I'm excited. I've always wanted to try paddle boarding, looks like a great work out. Have a great weekend! :)

  7. I am also going to see Trainwreck this week-- I'm glad you liked it. My husband and I went to a movie a couple of weeks ago and when deciding what to watch he suggested Magic Mike-- he thought it was about basketball!

  10. Love reading your 5 for Fridays. I feel like I get to know you a little bit more. :o) I LOVE paddle boarding. I did a groupon last summer and had so much fun. I have wanted to go again, but it just hasn't been in the plans yet this summer. Hope you're enjoying your last week of summer!
