Five For Friday (June 27th)

Happy Friday friends!  I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs for Five for Friday. 

I just returned from my vacation. My husband and I went to Nashville and we had so much fun. 

On Sunday, my husband and I celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary! We ate dinner at the Hard Rock on Broadway in Nashville.

We got to go to the Grand Ole Opry! This was a bucket list moment for sure. I grew up listening to Waylon Jennings, Merle Haggard, George Jones and so many more great country artists. It was truly an awesome experience to be where so many legends have performed. 

There was a surprise performance from Little Jimmy Dickens! How cool is that?!?

We also toured the Ryman Auditorium, the Country Music Hall of Fame, and the legendary 
Studio B recording studio. Here are some snap shots of our trip. 

I had a slight obsession with the Miranda Lambert exhibit at the Hall of Fame. I'm a tad obsessed with her and aware we could be best friends if we ever meet! 

This piano sits in the RCA Studio B recording studio. It was Elvis's favorite piano. Over 1000 Billboard hits have been recorded on it. It was awesome to see. 

Of course I had to rock my Jamberry nail wraps during our trip. I'm wearing this months sister style wrap Born to Sparkle! The picture shown below is at the Grand Ole Opry! I still have these wraps on today and they look great! 

I have two open spots for online parties in July. Want to earn FREE jams? Book your party with me today! I do all the work and you get the rewards! Click here to host a party! 

We drove to Nashville. It's a 10 hour drive from my little town in Texas. That gave me some time to work on some new products. My husband calls me a workaholic. It is only sorta true! 

Do you use Brag Tags in your classroom? I do and my kids LOVE them. Are you curious as to what they are? Brag Tags are a rewards incentive where students can earn tags for various things to be placed on a necklace. I created a set of Math Concept Brag Tags. They were created to reward my students when they have "masted" a certain math topic. Once they can show me how a skill is done, they will earn that tag for their necklace. These are great for small groups. You can click here to check them out. They are on sale today! 

This starts tomorrow!!! I'm linking up with some of my favorite blogging buddies to share some great ideas with you! Stay tuned! 


  1. It looks like you two had a great time on your Anniversary Getaway! How nice that you are able to do that!

    1. It was nice to getaway! See you in two weeks friend!

  2. Happy anniversary to you and your hubby! Looks like you had a fun getaway!

    Love your jamberry nails! I got some as a gift from a student, but haven't used them yet! Are they easy??

    1. Hi Lauren! Yes, they are very easy to apply. I can do a full manicure in about 15 minutes. Cut your wrap in half. That will do two nails. Then simply heat your wrap for a few seconds with a hair dryer then apply to your nail. Pull and stretch the wrap tight and smooth out any wrinkles with a cuticle pusher or orange stick. Then clip and file off the extra and reheat your nails. Its nice to not have any dry time or no chipping. If you have any questions let me know and I'll be glad to help.

  3. I LOVE Nashville!! My husband and I just went there last December. We're hoping to move there next summer actually. :) We did a lot of the same things you did...I loved the Grand Ole Opry and the Hall of Fame. Hope you guys had a great anniversary!!
