You may have noticed a whole new look to my blog! Megan at A Bird in Hand Designs did a phenomenal job creating a design that totally suits me! I'm now looking fabulous on my blog, TpT, and Facebook! I would highly recommend Megan, who is the Megan of the oh-so-awesome I Teach. What's your superpower?, to anyone that wants a little makeover. I cannot say enough wonderful things about her!
I've officially joined Instagram! I feel like a 90-year old woman trying to figure it all out, but I'm getting there! You can follow me at @mrsoknows!
I loaded up on blue and green items at Big Lots. I found baskets, awesome carpets, and all sorts of other goodies!
Of course, loading up on stuff means running out of space. Since my shopping trip resulted in an overfilled car, I had to break my promise of staying out of the classroom until August. I arrived at work at 7:10 on Tuesday and left at 4:00. I had to move classrooms this year and once I walked in the room to all of those boxes, there was no way I was leaving until they were unpacked, and I really didn't. I didn't even stop for lunch, so I am getting there. I also went in on Wednesday and Thursday, so all of a sudden Friday feels like the start of a weekend again. I can't wait to be ready for an official classroom reveal, but I did want to show off my bulletin boards that I finished!
I'm in a new room and since I have a whole wall of windows, I've lost a bulletin board, which I'm totally sad about. Luckily this large one can be split in two. Every year, it's usually some a shade of blue and a shade of green. This year I did the fadeless paper in nile green and light blue. The fadeless paper was being super finicky so those wrinkles are going to have to work themselves out! I am definitely a Creative Teaching Press girl, using the Dots on Turquoise border with the Poppy Red border underneath (and let me tell you that layering borders…not a blast), and then the Paisley on Brown border. I am very pleased with the end result!
I've been looking forward to tonight all week. It's Dave time! I am a bit of a Dave Matthews Band fanatic. In my college years, I traveled all over the northeast for shows. Tonight will mark Dave show #19. I will be singing and dancing along, embracing my music-loving, hippy ways! As Dave says, "Celebrate we will, because life is short, but sweet for certain."
