Favorite Pins Friday

Hey y'all!  It's time for another installment of...

Here's how it works.  Pin like a crazy person through the week {oh wait...is that just me?!?!?} and highlight your favorites every Friday.  Of course, you can post about your favorite teaching related pins, but feel free to post about anything else you pinned, too!!!  I love finding a great new recipe or a something I've never seen before that I just "have to have" :)
The only rule:  please make sure to link back to the ORIGINAL poster and not to Pinterest :)  Because let's be real....Pinterest is NOT a person!!!  Please and thankyouverymuch.

Here are my *favorites* from the week...

Favorite TEACHING related pins

I LOVE this precious back to school idea from A Love for Teaching!  And I love that it can be adapted for ANY grade level!  This is just TOO cute!

This is such a GREAT idea from Joyful Learning in KC!  What a fantastic activity for Writer's Workshop!!  Genius, I tell ya!

My favorite FOODIE pins

I don't know if I've told you before, but pina colada is one of my favorite flavors :)  And pina colada in bar form?!  Enough already!  These pina colada bars from The Recipe Critic are being made ASAP!  I just hope I can make them look half as appetizing ;)

I LOVE a good salad and this one from Closet Cooking has me swooning.

My favorite FASHION pins

These necklaces from Jewelmint are AMAZING!

And I'm loving this look.  It's all pretty cute, but that sweater is about to have a new home in my closet.  Love.

My favorite PRODUCT pin
