And Happy New Year!!! (Sale!)

It's hard to believe that tomorrow will be 2014. I think the older I get the faster time goes by.....does anyone else feel that way? It just seems that yesterday we were all prepping our classrooms for school to begin and now here we are, prepping for the second half of the year. This is crunch time---the time when those that are making tons of progress continue and those that are well...not....we just continue to do interventions and with fingers crossed and prayer--hope that the light bulb will click.

January is completely crazy where I work----we go back the 2nd of this month, work all next week and then have workdays and a holiday along with testing and assessments on top of report cards and PEP's, writing folders, and the list goes on. Tons of paperwork this month---sometimes not enough teaching but hey, I don't make the rules....

But we will definitely be getting in some fun stuff this month---snowmen, winter, penguins (my favorite) and lots of other goodies. 

So to bring in the New Year I'm having a HUGE sale at my TPT store. Everything is 20% off until Thursday!!!

 Thanks Ashley Hughes and the 3am Teacher for the awesome graphics
and of course my buddy Irene for the font!

  Here is a best seller that is on sale. These newsletters are completely editable so all you have to do is type and print!

And my Sight Word Packs are on sale as well!!

Grab them individually if you already own one----or grab the bundle to save $ and get both packs!!

13 in 13 Linky Party

I'm linking up with Miss Kindergarten, A Teeny Tiny Teacher, and Dragonflies in First for their 3rd annual linky party!!

Scarves!! I wear them with everything!! I began sewing (somewhat) this year, so I started making infinity scarves....which has multiplied into a hot mess of scarves hanging on the back of the bedroom door. 


I haven't seen Catching Fire yet (I know I know....but if I have I'm sure that would be my favorite) but seeing as I haven't....I guess it would have to be

Very good!

Surprisingly.....it's this!
(shocker huh?)

But I still love 

We don't really eat out a lot....and honestly there's a lot of restaurants where I live but nothing out of the ordinary that just makes me want to go all of the time. But there is a little place that we go a lot on teacher workdays...it's soooo good.


I've been doing a lot of DIY projects lately and my most favorite thing I've been working on is the burlap door hangers. It's been fun!!

 I made this one for my mom for Christmas.


The hubs and I didn't exchange gifts this year but I did get an upgrade on my phone (finally!!!) and got the Iphone 5c!! I'm so happy with it b/c now I have storage space and can do more with it!
Mine is blue! :)


I have a confession to make---I'm an avid pinner. Especially if I'm sitting somewhere waiting for something---I'm on pinterest. Crazy I know but I completely understand that it's ok and that I'm not the only one! ;) I'm here if you would like to follow!

Do I have to pick one pin??? Whew----

Well I just pinned this the other day and although we do not have a baby on the way or anything---this is a great shower idea or any party for that matter!!
Use golf tees to tie balloons to the ground!! How cute!
Use Golf Tees to put Balloons in the ground lining the walkway for a birthday, baby shower or any other party :)

 One of my favorites was all about Bats! One of YOUR favorite posts was last year's (2012) December currently and a freebie!


Finished Graduate school in August with my Master's in Elementary Education!!! :)

This is one from this summer when we went on our mission trip! :)
And of course our Christmas picture!

Seeing black bears up close on our mission trip---something that we sure don't see where I live. Not like this!

Be a little more healthy---stick with the walking that I've been doing and add to it. Eat better (I'm a sweet junkie) and stick with it. No diets, just better eating habits.



What a great promise <3 
He has promised us so many things---I just have to stay faithful in His promises.

Christmas Pictures---Better Late Than Never!

Little late on this post.....but thought you'd like to see a couple of things we did before break.

We made these cute little hand print trees to give to their parents!

We also made these little burlap reindeer!! Source here.

We had a blast with the Grinch and made Grinch juice (a little lime sherbert and sierra mist!).


And the hubs and I had a blast at church taking these pictures! :)
Hope you and your family had a very Merry Christmas!!!

Five for Friday!! Posted on a Friday! :)

It's been a busy week. No time for blogging---FULL moon AND last week before Christmas break....geez who decided to have all of this at one time!!??


I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday.

1. We've had a blast this past week having spirit week at school. Each day was something different for the holiday. (Wear red/green, wear Christmas attire, etc.) And the last day was dress as a present day!! 

Two of our ladies at work went all out!!

Our kinders had Polar Express Day that same day---so I chose to wear pajama's.....why be in a box when you can be comfy!?! LOL

2. And because it was Polar Express Day----we had fun writing about what we would want our first gift of Christmas to be. 

One in particular stood out to me......

 I do believe he means "games" not "gas"....but I laughed so hard......!!!!

3. We had fun practicing our sight words with my new Sight Word Pack #2!!! 

4.  We made Santa Grahams.....not quite how it should look but they didn't care. They had fun and ate it up! :)

And we had fun by the "fireplace" while making these!!! (YouTube----crackling fire with Christmas music!)

5. Some of us bloggers are having a blast offering up one paid item for FREE for ONE day only!!! You have to check out our Facebook pages to grab the links!!! It's been a lot of fun and there are only a few days left!!!

Thanks Irene for making all of the buttons and organizing this!!
