Operation: Get Organized

Hi all! 

I hope everyone is enjoying their break! I decided today was going to be my movie marathon day. I slept in really late, so might as well continue my day with a whole-lotta-nothin'. 

One of my goals in 2015 is to become more organized. This inspired me to create a New Years freebie for anyone with the same goal. 

I knew some of my headings wouldn't fit everyone, so I made a blank one as well. Just open in PP or KeyNote, and edit! I have been loving anything gold lately, so the new 3AM teachers packet was perfect! 

I hope you all can find it helpful. Make sure to leave feedback. I LOVE reading feedback. :) 


Happy 2015! :)

A Few of my Favorite Things

Hi all!

I am linking up with Erica's Ed-Ventures for a few of my favorite things! I am excited to do this one because I love seeing how much a like some of us are!

Here it goes:

Target {Duh}

Target and TJ Maxx are literally right across the street from me. This leads to weekend walks to the wonderland and over spending... I love every minute of it.

Dunkin Donuts Coffee

Well really any coffee...but if I had to choose it would be Dunkin. I stop there on a weekly basis. And now they offer almond milk! :) 

Beauty Items: 

I LOVE Lush and exploring Sephora. If you have not tried Lush yet, you must! I recommend the bath bombs for a newbie. This store has changed what I use on a daily basis. They are vegan, vegetarian, home made, and nothing touches an animal. It is amazing how everything smells and is well worth a visit. 

Pinterest...No picture of explanation needed. :) 

Tone It Up: 

These girls changed my eating habits and love for working out. I love this community! 

I am keeping it short and sweet today! If you want to link up with Erica too for some fun, you can click here

Happy Festivus everyone! ;)

Dec Currently

Good morning everyone!

I am linking up with Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade for this month's currently again! I love this link up. :)

Most of mine are pretty self explanatory....

{Listening} Pandora...I am kinda obsessed over T.Swifts new CD, so I turned that on while the kiddos were in music class. I forget how relaxing it can be to have music on while I work!

{Loving}..all of the decor! I am one of those people who wants to start decorating as soon as November hits. The boyfriend asked me not to until Thanksgiving was over, so on Friday I exploded with ornaments and tinsel in our apartment. (Thanks to Target...of course) I will share some of my crafts I made for the holiday season soon!

{Thinking...and KNOWING}..I need a new computer. My Mac is from 2007. Enough said.

{Wanting} intuos graphic this what you all use for creating clip art?...I am a newb, can you tell?!

{Needing} take back all of the amazing food I ate this weekend. I hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving! I know I did! I had two of them...and man, my body is hating me this week for eating pie like it was my job. Everything was just sooooo yummy though!

{Giving}...I am trying to find a community bank for the kiddos and I to get involved with this season. My students are so sweet and always thinking of others. I think it would be a great way for us all to give back to the community. How do you give back in your classroom?

Until next time..
Merry, Merry everyone! xox
