Tried it Tuesday and a Mother's Day Craftivity!

Testing.
Yuck.
Stressed students.
Stressed teachers.
YUCK!

(There's my little poetry for the last day in April!)

But seriously, I wish testing was over already. My kiddos and I are exhausted! I also have a bladder infection that antibiotics haven't TOUCHED for the last few days, so hours of monitoring the room and not being able to leave are TORTURE!

Okay, I'm done complaining! I want to share a few things we've tried this week and link up with Holly! Sorry, this is a little mumble jumble of a post :) Bare with me people! ;)
My first "tried it" is actually an at home one! Hubs and I went to Ruby Tuesday during Lent when we were on our super strict diet, and I got their Spaghetti Squash. I LOVED it. So, I went on a mission to make my own! Last night we made it with my homemade sauce and grilled asparagus. It was DELISH! I highly reccommend it! (I couldn't believe how low calorie it is!)
 
Another "tried it" is motivating my kiddos! We began our day with Kid Present's Pep Talk (if you haven't heard of Kid President, youtube him now!) While watching we ate our Lucky Charms for Luck on the Test!




It has been a stressful but successful week so far!

The end of the week will be fun as we are going to begin our "The Sweetest Mother" craftivity! It's a cute, easy craft to make, and lets the kiddos be descriptive!
Click here to pick up this craftivity at my TPT store! :)

Thanks for listening to me babble on.. off to drink more cranberry juice and water! If you leave me some love, I'll randomly pick a number comment to give the craftivity to for FREE! Just make sure you leave your email :)

And don't forget about my giveaway! It ends Friday!

  4. I am sorry you are not feeling well...I battled a really bad sinus infection during testing for my kids. It was not fun at all! I just wanted to put my head down and sleep instead of watching them. I love your mother's day great. It is super cute!

    Praying you feel better soon!
