5 on Friday!

1. Still researching history stuff. Teaching this is nothing like teaching grammar. The change in content (more interesting than grammar!) will be a nice change for me.

2. I'm throwing my dad a surprise 60th birthday. I don't know if my dad has ever had a "birthday" party before. He has no idea at least i don't think he does and will be surprised----I hope! We went with the theme in the pic above from Party City, "the party continues..."

3. I've been able to go to the pool a few times the past couple of weeks. Love this towel that I got in the NYC sale and have used it every time I've gone to the pool.

4. Pea Salad--sorry for the messy pic. This is the last of it that I scraped together for the picture. This is SOOOOOOOO good. My friend made this when we had a pool day and cooked out. I asked for the recipe to take to a teacher pool day on Wednesday. We had some left over, and I've been eating it with my lunch. So good!!!!!
Recipe is as follows: 
2 pkgs frozen peas
6 or 7 strips of bacon
2 tbp finely chopped purple onion
1/2 cup chopped mozzarella
1/2 cup chopped cheddar
1/2 cup mayo
pinch of sugar

5. Sunkissed Citrus Dryer Disk. Y'all this is SO yummy! I use the dryer disks to make my clothes and towels smell so good. This doesn't function as a dryer sheet; it's merely for smell. So, I throw a non-fragrant dryer sheet in with this. And voila, no static and smells divine!

Hi! Popping over from Five on Friday. The pea salad looks interesting. May have to give it a try. Changing subjects as a teacher is exciting and scary all at once. I've had my fair share of new subjects...some I didn't even know about until a few days before the start of school. Yikes! You seem very organized...I'm sure you will have a great year!
