Five for Friday

Summertime Fridays are WAY different than school year Fridays.  During the school year, you come home on a Friday exhausted and wanting to crawl right into least I do!  But in the summertime, Fridays are about doing what you want when you want and having fun least for me!

Tonight I get to do one of my favorite races in Anchorage and can't wait to rock out and run like the wind to my playlist!

My little guy LOVES babies and he got to hold a baby for the very first time this week when one of my students came over with his 3-week-old sister.  He could've sat that, smiling with that little bundle in his arms all afternoon!

I can go running or biking until midnight if I want to because we have sun for 90% of the day now!
My garden!  I tore down the 4x8' rectangular bed and built my own creation!  My priority was being able to easily reach the plants, weeds, etc. anywhere around the garden.  I made hoop houses for it as well to help protect against cold and wind.  I'm also going to drill holes in between the parts of the garden so I can thread a drip hose in and out for when we leave on vacation.
Essential Oils
My friend introduced them to me back in December and I've loved learning, using and ordering oils from DoTerra and Eden's Garden (my fave).  I swear the blend I used for mood got me through this year (my most difficult).  And I have to say that using peppermint oil and a blend called "breathe" have immensely helped my exercise induced asthma!!!

Hope your week was AWESOME!
