Five for Friday

I really love this link up of Doodle Bugs Teaching!! Five for Friday is a great way for me to recap my week!

Let's take a look at what I've been up to this week!

I had my 6th round of laser treatments on my ankle this week. There has been so much improvement since the very first time I went, and each time it gets a little better! The doctor wants to schedule some more treatments and see how my ankle responds. 
I'm most excited about being weight-bearing again! I can FINALLY put weight on my ankle, for the first time since the accident in January. I have to use my walker and wear my brace, and I'm oh-so-slow, but I am able to walk again!! I practice walking with the walker by going up and down the hallway, trying to build up that strength so I can be strong enough to not need to walker anymore!! :-)

My sweet niece got her 16 month pictures done this week. She is so stinkin' cute!! Even better, she is my sister reincarnated!! I LOVE watching my niece give the same attitude my sister did! It's crazy how much of a carbon copy my niece is to my sister!! If my mom were still with us, she would definitely say my sister deserves Lilly!!

I'M HAVING A SALE!!! I'm a little bummed that, because of my ankle, I can't got do any of the fun 4th of July activities. I won't be going to any cookouts or carnivals, no beaches or fireworks. So since I'm stuck on the couch, I decided to celebrate the holiday by having a SALE!!
Come on over and stock up on all sorts of amazing products that you can use this upcoming school year! Help me celebrate the holiday!!

I have been working SO HARD on my TPT Sellers Challenge this week! This week we are to showcase our Masterpiece, and mine isn't quite finished. Thank goodness this challenge is a week and a half instead of the normal week! I will be done very, very soon. NO. MATTER. WHAT. Can you tell I'm ready to be done with it? ;-)   I already have an amazing friend that I have paired up with to edit my Masterpiece. My bloggy bestie Jill from Chevron and Centers is going to be my editing partner! She's so awesome, I know she'll do an amazing job!
Since I don't have my Masterpiece to share yet, I wanted to share with you an update on my TPTSellersChallenge!! I have been keeping track of the numbers all week, each week, instead of just at the beginning and end of the challenge.
Here are my numbers for the first three weeks of TPT Sellers Challenge. I have been lucky enough to see an increase in all areas, which is really awesome! Several of the areas have jumped up by A LOT, too, which is so great to see!! I am also excited to have reached several goals and milestones that I set for myself! I can't wait to celebrate those accomplishments with you as soon as the TPT Seller Challenge is over! Something fun to look forward to!!

Finally, I wanted to touch base with you and share how my Freebie Feedback Challenge is going. If you read my last Five for Friday post you remember that I am challenging myself to leave feedback for every freebie I have downloaded from TPT.
This is what I started with. Whenever I download a new freebie, the number in the blue boxes goes up. Whenever I leave feedback on freebies that I have downloaded, I add those numbers to the green boxes. Finally, I subtract the green from the blue to get the number in the purple boxes, which is how many freebies I have left to leave feedback on.
Here's where I am as of today. I have been trying to leave feedback on freebies at least ten times a day, though there are days where I don't make that goal while other days I exceed it. I think it's neat to see my progress so far. It's pretty cool to see that I have left feedback on over 100 freebies so far!! GO Me!! :-)

Thanks for recapping my week with me! Swing on over to Doodlebugs Teaching to see how else has linked up! I love getting to read about all my favorite bloggy friends!!

Don't forget to come back tomorrow and link up for Spotlight Saturday! In this link up you can showcase your favorite products, resources, activities, and ideas! So many wonderful things have been shared, from detailed planners to fancy handmade paperclips to incredible TPT products! I have learned so many new things, I'm so excited to see what everyone has to Spotlight tomorrow!!

    1. Thank you so much! She is super cute and a bit rotten too! ;-) I'm glad to know I'm not the only one still working on finishing my Masterpiece!!! Thanks so much for stopping by!!

  2. You niece is so darling! I'm glad to hear that you're improving with every treatment:) You definitely have a great attitude and are accomplishing a lot with your "couch time"!

    1. Thank you so much, you are so incredibly sweet!! I love that little girl, and I very much love the running around she keeps my sister doing!! :-) I'm so glad to be getting better each week, and I'm SO SO GLAD to be able practicing walking again! I hope to accomplish a few more things before the summer is over! Thank you so much for stopping by, and for leaving such sweet feedback!!

  3. I'm so impressed with your numbers!!! You go girl! haha. Share your wisdom! :)

    1. Thank you!! Those numbers have been so long in coming!!! I've been blogging and TPT-ing for going on three years now, so I'm really excited to FINALLY see those numbers go up!! The best advice I can give is to stick with it and make sure to make your presence known in the world of social media! Make sure to post and Instagram and Tweet as often as possible, including as many pictures as you can! The more interest you can attract, the better! I wish you much luck in increasing your numbers too!!
