July Currently & a Sale!

Can you believe that it is July!?! I can't!! I'm linking up with Farley and her July Currently.

Listening: I know its shameful, but I watch all of the Real Housewives. I am sure you are rolling your eyes as you read this but...the Real Housewives of New Jersey is a summertime guilty pleasure! Can you keep it our little secret?!

Loving: I am loving that my summer has been so relaxing that I don't really know what day of the week it is. (A little Downton Abbey for ya!)

Thinking: I have the best friend ever! It's true! I can only wish that everyone has a special "Samm-o" in their life to make each day brighter! :)

Wanting: A Michael Kors WHITE purse...which one? Opinions please!!!

Needing: A manicure and pedicure. I think I'll go tomorrow! :)

Tips, tricks or hints: Just be you, because you are fabulous! Don't compare yourself to others. Push yourself to be better!
Well said Mr. Roosevelt!

To wrap things up I just wanted to let you know that I am having a sale in my TPT store tomorrow! Everything is 20% off, including my new Back to School Unit. Take a peek if you are interested. Have a great rest of your weekend! 

Don't forget to go link up!!

Five for Friday

So it has been a little while...20 days to be exact! Oops! I am enjoying my summer just a little too much! I am linking up with Doodle Bugs to share 5 random things from the past 2 weeks! :) I am warning you, I am loving summer break so there is a lack of school in this post!!

My love and I just celebrated being together for 8 years! We took a little get away together and had a blast! I love him so much! Can't blame me, huh!?! He is just too darn cute! :) He's not going to like that this picture made the blog!!

I have been loving my summer morning workouts. I do a boot camp workout by the beach 2 times a is a killer but the view makes up for it! 

I have to workout because I have been enjoying tons of my favorite this yummy number from the best Taco Truck around!!! The elotes are AMAZING!! (I think I just gained 5 lbs. just looking at the picture!)

Unsweet tea is a must all summer long!! It is just so tasty!

Last week I went parasailing with one of my favorite girls! I forgot to take my camera up with me, who does that?!?! I was giddy like a little was a Happy Day! 

I have been doing some work. I have revamped some of the first units/products I posted on TPT. If you have purchased these items, go and redownload (for FREE) the updated files! (Click on the images for a quick link.)

Five for Friday

 Ok so I have been way too busy the past few weeks so I have missed out on blogging and my favorite linky! Here is my recap from the last few weeks...prepare yourself it is a LONG post!

We had our Donuts with Dad event. I love seeing my kids interact with their dads. We had donuts, read our books we made, shared fun gifts and sang songs. It was a BLAST!

Here our some of my favorite pages from the "A Donut for Dad" books-- of course you can find my very favorite page HERE!

My dad is smart. He knows all about loving me. 
My favorite thing to do with my dad is snuggle. 
If I could buy my dad anything I would buy him cherries from Publix.

My dad is really good at standing on one foot.
My dad is smart. He knows all about Africa.

My dad is good at fixing things. He is good at fixing the chicken coop.
My dad's job is to sit at a desk.

My favorite thing to do with my dad is to cook with my dad.
My dad is really good at going to the grocery store.

This week was my last week of school. Yesterday was my last day with my students. It was filled with tears. I have such an amazing class this year. My teacher friend wrote on facebook the other day, "I don't love every day but I really do love every kid...". I think she nailed it right on, right?!?!

We did lots of fun and silly things in the last week. One being silly sock day- I even let them chill in their socks one afternoon. I thought it would be fun, and it was...until it was time to put the kids shoes back on.  Ooops, 2 people had the exact same shoe- style, color and size. I may or may not have mixed up their shoes. I felt bad! 

We also made these fun t-shirts. This was such a hit and so pretty for end of the year photos!!

I have been busy making thank you's for our room moms, a middle school volunteer and teachers who also teach in our classroom.

My other labor of love has been my end of the year gift to my students and parents. It is a DVD filled with all of our class created podcasts, movies and photos. It was a huge project but totally worth it. My kids begged to watch the DVD on the last day of school, which was a fun way to spend our final hours together! (The Kool-Aid, gift tag and straw were pinterest inspired.)

Today I finished packing up my classroom, it looks so sad in there! Now I am ready to enjoy my summer! Whoop whoop! :) 

Thanks for bearing with me through this super long post! I hope you had a great week, and that you have an even better weekend! Go link up with Doodle Bugs
