pin-it friday...owls, potato salad & sparklers :)

I've been wanting to decorate with a theme in my classroom for several years, but always had an excuse not to {grad work & pregnancy, to name a few}.  I'm not sure why I chose this summer {busy chasing an almost 14-month old all over the place!} but I did...and I'm finding TONS of inspiration for my classroom during Joel's nap times.  I decided on an owl theme at the end of the school year & this past week I've been digging into Pinterest to find lots of good ideas.  I went to Micheal's yesterday to gather materials for this this sweet wreath {with a different spin}  :)

I was so hungry for potato salad to go with our grilled burgers on Saturday.  Dan likes the creamy kind, but I didn't have a recipe that we could both agree I hopped on Pinterest to see if I could find one.  Oh. My. Goodness.  This was sooo good & super easy to make!  Dan, Joel & I loved it {Daniel wouldn't try it}!  The best part: I used chives & dill from my very own herb garden :)

And...this is one of those ideas where everyone sits back and says "why didn't I think of that?"

Linking to Pin-it Friday at 5 Minutes for Mom.


  1. I love those adorable wreaths too. I've seen several on Etsy for around $35.
    We're potato salad fans especially during the hot Las Vegas summers.
    Happy July 4th.

    1. I saw them, too! I bought materials to make the wreath for well under $ if I could only find the time to make it. Happy 4th to you, too! :)
