Five For Friday!

I have been SO lucky this summer to get to travel all over the world!! I went to Ireland first with my family.  Then, my next stop was China. Below you can see some pictures of me in Hong Kong.  I learned how to use chopsticks and walked around the markets...wasn't brave enough to eat street meat! Haha!
I just left Vietnam on Friday and had a blast!! I had the opportunity to learn all about the farming and fishing life!
I am currently in Thailand.  I just got back from a day spent taking care of rescued elephants! AMAZING! 
Believe it or not, I have been trying to get some work done during my travels!  I had a couple requests to make my decor pack in other colors.  The first color scheme I made was gray.  I love it because it can be used in any classroom with any color scheme!!  You can add your 'pop' of color along with this gray pack by adding colored book bins, pom-poms, etc. You can find the gray pack HERE
I will be making the same decor pack in bright colors and primary colors. Be on the look out!
I am currently reading Redeeming Love.  I am honestly not a reader at all, but this book is definitely one to check out. I am loving it!
A bunch of the Freebielicious girls will be I Teach K and we would LOVE for you to stop by our booth between July 7th and July 10th to enter to win an iPad Mini! 
I wish I was able to be there to meet you all!!
I am ABSOLUTELY in LOVE with these new classroom quotes I found on Etsy!! I may need to redo my classroom quote wall before school starts this year! SO cute!! (Just click on an image below to view them on Etsy)
Hope you all are enjoying your summer!!


  1. Sounds like you are having an awesome time! How was the elephant experience?! I love elephants! Would love to see photos if you have them! Keep having an awesome time and don't work too much!

  5. WOW!!! It sure looks like you are having an amazing summer - Good for you!!!
    I am intrigued by the idea of your quote board. Would you be so kind as to elaborate on it??? I would love to hear more on how you use it and whre in your classroom you keep it!

  6. Hi Hilary!!! I have a wall in my classroom where I hung all of my quotes. I read them to the children throughout the year-I love them and receive so many compliments on them. I don't have a great picture of the wall, but you can see an old picture here:

  7. I'm curious too! Was this a mission's trip? It looked fantastic! Glad you were able to do it!

  8. This one was not a mission trip. I went with two friends from high school! :)
