Let's Get Acquainted and Five for Friday!

Happy Friday!!!!
It's been a LONG week, but I'm SOOO happy it's the weekend!! Only 4 more days 'till Spring Break too!! Yahoo!!
I'm combining two fabulous linky parties this week for an extra special Friday post! I'm linking up with Latoya from Flying Into First Grade for her Let's get Acquainted Linky and Kacey from Doodle Bugs Teaching for her Five For Friday linky!

Ok... so the rules for this week's Let's Get Acquainted linky are to share 3 things about yourself that you like or like to do using your initials. As always, the rules for Five for Friday are to tell about five random things from the week. I'm going to combine them! 
My initials are J.P.S. {they have been all of my life... I didn't have to change them when I got married!}. 

1. J- I've mentioned before that J is a hard letter to think of, but I picked JEWELRY! I really like jewelry... I have some OK jewelry and a few nice pieces, but I wish I had more really NICE jewelry. I am fortunate that my Aunt Gen is a super talented jewelry maker, so I have some really personal and special pieces in my collection. She made me a beautiful bracelet for my wedding, and last weekend she gave me this really beautiful tree of life necklace.  I LOVE it!! 

2. P- My husband and I are HUGE Patriots fans!!  We LOVE football!! We count down 'till the season starts and are always SOOOO sad when it ends! We're obsessed. We totally go all out by wearing our Pats gear each week. This week the Pats let Wes Wekler go to the Broncos, so I'm pretty sad about that, but on the bright side we still have Tom Brady and I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Tom Brady! If Makenzie was a boy, we planned on naming her Brady. If we have another child he OR she will be named Brady. =)  Here's a picture of our sweet girl during the 2011 season... she still had such a baby face and really curly hair! She loves being our little cheerleader. GO PATS!!! 

3. S- Sorority   I'm a sorority girl! I had the BEST time in college in my sorority, Delta Phi Epsilon. I joined as a freshman, and it was the best decision I made in my four years there.  I still have contact with most of my sisters and hope to reunite with them for an alumni weekend some day soon!  My sister, Danielle is also a "Deepher"... she's a legacy. =) She does everything I do. ;-) 

4. Do you follow Gina from Beach Sand and Lesson plans? She's amazing!! It's her birthday WEEK, so she's having an AWESOME week-long Birthday Bash giveaway!! It begins tomorrow, and she's featuring us on Sunday!! Head on over there to check it out!!  

5. I actually WON a giveaway!!! I enter so many of them, that it was only a matter of time, right?? I feel like I hit the JACKPOT of all giveaways!!  Thank you so much, Stacia and Amanda from Collaboration Cuties for having such great giveaway!! I'm such a LUCKY girl!!! I can't wait to print out all of my new winnings!! 
I think it's off to "milk and cookies" for my sister and I. Makenzie is with her Nana and Grandad for the weekend, so it's time for Mommy and Auntie to have some FUN!! 


  1. My daughter screamed from her room when she read about Wes, I thought she got hurt! She is a diehard Pats fans (we live in Miami) and proudly wears her jersey to school. It isn't hard, since we know the Dolphins just don't hit the mark anymore, lol.

  2. Hello! I found you on the Let's Get Acquainted Linky! Love your blog colors. I don't have much jewelry either but I wish I had more! I think it's great you keep in touch with your sorority sisters. My SDSU friends get together for a girls trip every year!

  3. I am a Pats fan too! So sad about Welker! I am a new follower.

  4. Congrats on winning something! I LOVE winning things for my room!!!...Your little girl is so cute. I love her curls!

  5. I am a huge Patriots fan that lives in Wisconsin. Some Sundays you'd think I have the plague! When I have kids, they will definitely be Pats fans as well. I love your blog and am your newest follower!
