Five for Friday

I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching today to share my five for Friday.

Have you seen the Coca Cola bottles and cans with names on them? I never imagined that I would find my name, Kayla, printed on a can/bottle. My mom, brother and I were out shopping today and my mom found my name on a bottle at TJ Maxx. I haven't been drinking sodas this summer and didn't plan on drinking any. I could not pass up buying a bottle with my name today! Coca Cola sure is clever with this new campaign. :)

Here I am with my "Kayla" coke. Yes, my brother is photobombing my picture and I did not feel like trying to take another one, because I knew he would do it again!

I babysit for two kids on Thursdays and we went to the Aquarium yesterday. Coca Cola was there with their Share a Coke campaign. They had two Coke machines inside that could print your name on the side of a coke can. They are really trying to promote this campaign! There was already a line of people waiting to do this when we got there a few minutes after it opened. 

I found this picture on the Coca Cola website. This is what the machine looks like.

I have been participating in the Creative Teaching Press 12 Days of Back to School giveaway this week and last week. They emailed out a giveaway you could enter each day. I was so surprised when I opened my email last night and saw that I won one of their giveaways! I won the stencil-cut borders.

These are some of the stencil cut borders they offer. Aren't these so cute?!? The pumpkins and the Christmas trees are my favorite. I am so excited that I won this giveaway! Keep checking back because I will be doing a blog post on the borders when I get them! 

The Creative Teaching Press 12 days of back to school is over today, but it is not too late to enter this giveaway! How awesome would it be to win $200 of Creative Teaching Press stuff for your room? They have a Rafflecopter for this giveaway. Check it out here. They have all kinds of decor for so many themes. I already have their monkey bulletin border and love it!

I found out this week that there is a possibility that my new classroom trailer will be ready in time for school! Please pray with me that this will happen!! 

I was able to meet with the girls on my team this week and we started planning out our yearly LRP. We have new science standards and science kits that we wanted to make sure we use this year. 

My mind has been racing with all of the things I need to do before school starts, but this helped eliminate one thing on the long to-do list in my head! I can't wait to figure out my trailer situation, so I can get started on getting my room ready. We go back August 11th and our students return August 18th. I'm hoping to get a couple more days of relaxation in before I go back. :)

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I've seen those Coke cans all over the internet, but haven't seen one in person yet. I'm a Pepsi gal... It's a fun idea though!

  2. Congrats on finding your name!! I found my sister's name, but haven't found mine yet!! Fingers crossed for your trailer being ready!! So glad to meet you through the linky!!

    Warmest Wishes,

  3. I thought it was a clever campaign too! I don't drink caffiene at all, so I can't drink it either, but I know how fun it is when people find their names! :) Those stencil borders are really cute!
