Five on Friday

Happy Friday Everyone! I've got a whole to-do list sitting next to me, begging me to cross things off of it, but I wanted to pop in & share a few things with you, so let's get down to business... 

1 - This Article 
Take a minute to read this article. Then, take a minute to freak out. (Because I know I certainly did.) Then, follow the steps in the article to keep Apple from tracking your every single move. I had absolutely NO idea that they could track me that closely with my iPhone. I mean, it goes everywhere with me! I don't have anything to hide, but it creeps me out that the information exists. I feel like Katniss with a tracking device injected into my arm. 

2 - This Picture

It just makes me happy. My daughter is the best. She can turn any day around in a matter of seconds. Yesterday afternoon we went for a run & then played in the yard. Give the girl fruit snacks & sidewalk chalk and she's a happy camper! I cannot wait to spend my summer with her. Only 33 days til finals! Not that I'm counting or anything... 

3 - Next Year
This morning I received my teaching assignment for next year. It's a bit of a change in that instead of teaching ELA at seventh grade in a couple different settings, I'll be teaching all self-contained ELA all day long. I kind of knew it was coming & I'm actually pretty excited about it. I'll be looping up with my current students & know that I can do a lot with the curriculum. I'm also going to move classrooms (again) to the nicest room in the whole building. Score! 

4 - An Awesome Event 
If you're local to the Rochester area, check out this awesome event next weekend. My sister is a member of the Junior League & they're hosting a home tour in Pittsford. It's full of some of the most beautiful homes I've ever seen & I'm looking forward to attending myself next weekend! If you're interested, you can buy tickets at Wegmans. 

5 - Wishful Thinking... 

I am just dying for some warmer weather! I got teased with my trip to Orlando & a few random days of 80 degree weather. We're pretty consistently stuck in the mid-50's & I just want it to warm up! I'm really looking forward to wearing my maxi dresses & tank tops! 


  1. Yeah, it is pretty scary what our phones (iOS, Android and Windows Phone) all know about us ... and how with each year the GPS keeps getting more and more precise!

    Love your pics, and this week my mornings have had a couple of days wearing shorts on my runs, and generally just really enjoyed the warmer feel in the air - oh, and getting home from my runs with the sun rising is amazing as well!

    Have a great weekend!

  2. The whole location services scares me. I have that entirely shut off.
