Friday Faves

* Word Nerdiness:  I found a great new word.  A Flaneur is one who wanders without destination.  Let's all be Faneurs this week.   

* Great Read: Escape From Mr. Lemoncello's Library by Chris Granbenstein.  This is a fantastic read aloud for second through fifth graders.  If you have a child in your life, this would make a great family read aloud. 

* Funniest Moment: I was walking my class to lunch the other day and my kids got a case of the giggles.  As my Tyler, who had had a very snotty nose all day, went into the lunch room  he laughed and said, "Mrs. Lawson.  I had a little giggle and it made me fart out my nose."

* Something to Make:a gratitude reminder from A Bird and Bean

* Terrific Tips: Prolific Living from A Beautiful Mess

* Images of the Week: When the Snow Fell... by Steering for North

* Anticipating: This weekend Jeffrey is taking me to Tulsa for the weekend to shop and see "Chicago".  I'm pretty excited!

* A Song: "All That Jazz" by Samantha Barks

* Quote of the Week: "If you're feeling blue, try painting yourself a different color." ~Hannah Cheatham, age 8

* PINspiration: Awesome Party Ideas currated by Danielle Cresp

* Film Fancies: "The Magic Horse" by Lottie Reiniger
* BLOGspiration: Susannah Tucker

* In Case You Missed It: My Best Gift

The picture above is one of my all time favorites of my sweet Sloane when she was about 4.

I smiled at the photo, giggled at the funniest moment, felt prodded by Prolific Living and teared up at My Best Gift :).

Sounds like a fun weekend planned! Love the photo and what a lot of inspiration in your post. Have you read The Flaneur by Edmund White? If not, it's about Paris and I think you'll like it. Hugs to you, dear Relyn! xx

"A far that came out my nose"...such perfect potty humor from a young boy! I hope your night out seeing Oklahoma was terrific.

Well I love that quote by Hannah, I shall remember it and try to paint myself a different colour when I am blue :)

I'll have to see if my husband's library has that book yet--sounds like a good one!

I'm a fan of flaneurs (and flaneuses), too!

Hope you loved "Chicago"!
