{five on friday!}

Linking up with Darci et al. from The Good Life Blog for 5 on Friday! This week’s post is brought to you by the letter “S,” in honor of September! Thanks for stopping by!

{one: sunset}

I drove over the mountain in awe of this divine masterpiece the other day:

{two: spine}

On Tuesday, I headed back over the mountain again for my regular chiropractor appointment. My hubby offered to handle a major all-day vet appointment for our Jack Russell Terrier and the dropoff/pickup of our toddler from school so that I could go solo. The therapy session was incredibly relaxing (it isn’t always), and my doc got a fancy new table for adjustments. It felt like a plush wave machine… I was stretched and rolled without any harsh manipulations, although I tend to like those. And true to my word, I did not tell him about my recent participation in the Super Spartan race.

Friday 2

{three: school picture day}

Thursday was School Picture Day for my son! I just thought the whole concept was  so cute. He only just turned 1 and they’ve already had Dinosaur Day, 2 class birthday parties, and Picture Day! The director said he took his photos very seriously, which probably means he’ll need a retake next week for not smiling. We get the proofs later today!

{four: snake}

This little guy (pictured below, not above!) was born in one of the classrooms at my school. Under a teacher’s desk, I do believe. And not as part of a science lesson. I work in a very, very rural pod school. The kind where groundhogs have tea parties outside your classroom and mice fall from ceiling tiles.  If you don’t like snakes, I suppose you’ll be relieved to hear that he was accidentally eaten by someone’s cat later the same day, although it saddens me to think of it. Poor little ring neck!

{five: spaghetti variation}

I’ve never liked spaghetti, but I did make this variation on spaghetti this week called braided spaghetti bread. I’ve made it a few times now, and it never disappoints! It’s very easy and is such a warm, cheesy comfort food – an Italian dinner all in one bite! Even my toddler loved it! I rolled out 16 thawed Rhodes dinner rolls after kneading them together, then filled the dough with spaghetti, sauce, and mozzarella cheese. I cut and braided the side pieces of the dough and and brushed the whole thing with a mixture of egg white, parmesan, and parsley. One of my family’s favorites! We’ll enjoy it again tonight before our long training runs tomorrow.

O.k….so your spaghetti bread looks delicious. I think I need to try it!! I used to teach 2nd grade before I quit to stay home with baby number two and I cannot imagine having mice fall out of the ceiling or baby snakes in the room!!!!! The pandemonium that would break out!! 🙂 Haha! Cutest baby in the world on your header! Sweetness. Amy 🙂

That’s awesome that you can stay home with your little one! My header is my son at 2 weeks old – my sister is a wonderful photographer, we are so blessed that she caught those precious moments for us! And yes! I guess critters come with the territory of a rural school! Definitely not what I am used to!

Thanks so much! I’m glad you enjoyed the recipe! I ended up making it twice last week to use up all the ingredients! I haven’t seen the taco version, but that sounds amazing – I’ll have to look for it! Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
