What I love Wednesday!

Hey there!  Long time no linky, right?  We were on vacation last week and it was oh so nice and so relaxing and we are looking forward to going again next year.  Now, I am in teacher mode and no longer in denial that school is starting soon:(  The only fun part?  Getting my classroom decor ready.  Which brings me to my first favorite.
1.  I have decided to keep with my zebra and brights theme this year.  I loved how it looked last year and am tired of it yet, so it stays!  I have looked high and low for some matching decor and could never find one that I really liked, so I created my own.  Came out cute too!  Almost done with it and will post it to TPT incase there are other zebra lovers out there!

2. My lesson plan book came.  I have been a long time erin condrin fan, but found that it really wasn't worth the money to me.  It was cute, I used it,  but in the end, too expensive.  I found this planner that i love and is way more reasonable.  It was personalized for me too!
The picture is not that great, but it is perfect!  Has a protective cover too! Can't wait to use it!

3. This app.  Alyson and I downloaded it while on vacation and we love it.  It is so much fun to pass the time (we played while at the dealership the other day).  Download it.

Thanks for stopping in!

What I'm Loving Wednesday!

 So, we have been busy bees this week, always a good thing, but I am glad I have a few hours before I need to meet the girls:)  I have some fun things to share for the link up party this week!

First, this packet.  I am working on something that will hopefully keep my firsties busy as they finish up their work.  So far, only 11 pages, but I'll get there!

 Next, our trip to the beach with Aly (Alyson't new AG doll).  She takes her everywhere.  And she had her first visit to the beach.
More scrapbooking, or Project Life-ing!  Yay!  Only at week two, but it will do!

 And this is something too cute not to love.  Alyson got this hat at Disneyland (on her birthday) for Aly.  Cute, right?
You may have noticed, all these pics are out of order, but you ger the idea.  Here is A at her party this past Sunday!

And of course, got to see NKOTB, Boys II Men, and 98 degrees.  (I could've done without 98, but Mr.Lachey was not bad to look at).  I think we had more fun watching this 30 and 40 year olds fawning over these singers, LOL!  There was even a fight of Donnie's t-shirt!  Haha!  But so glad we got to go!

And this need to get over to Toys R Us.  The 24 count crayons are 4 for $1!  Not .50 like at Target.  The only downfall is that you can only buy 8 at a time.  Go get you some!
 And today, we stopped by forever 21 and we found these adorable dresses for Miss A.  I love that they left one has a retro feel and the one on the right, is just so her.  We did have to go a size up because their kid stuff is so short, but come on, so cute!

A Friday Share

 Happy Friday!  I thought I would be a little crazy and post something today!;)  One of my goals this summer was to create items for my TPT store, I never seem to find the time during the school year.  So, I have been successful!  Yay!  The problem being, I have so many ideas that I want to get to, it is hard to figure out what start on first.
   Well, one of the things I decided to do was make activities to go with the MathStart series books.  And I started a specific one
I had about 15 pages done, and sometime during the night, the power went out and with it went all the work I did. Argh!  Usually it autosaves the progress I've made, but this time, nope.  I was so frustrated and more determined to get another one completed.  And here it is.
I think it turned out better than the first one!  And I made sure to save it as I went (yay me).  Click the picture to check it out!

Getting back into blogging, makes me miss blogging personal stuff like I used to.  So here is a little personal stuff for you.

I am finally catching up with my Project Life pages.  Here is the first week!

That's it!  Have a wonderful weekend!

What I'm Loving Wednesday

Hey there!  It seems the only time I get to this blog is Wednesdays, LOL!  That's okay by me.  At least I'm getting on here more consistently.  So I am linking up with Covered in Glitter again, yay!


I am a huge make-up fan.  And I love to find drugstore items that are just as great as the name brand ones.  Here is a new one that I tried and love!  The maybelline Falsies Big eyes mascara.  The part I love about this, it that there are two sides.  One for your top lashes, and one for the bottom.  That really is my favorite part.  Bottom lashes finally with a wand small enough to reach each lash.

My Alyson turns nine on Monday and as an early gift, we went to the American Girl store at The Grove.  It was so fun, mostly watching her try to look at everything at once.   She got one doll that she named Aly.  She loves her!  We also go Kanani fixed up and hair combed, she looks so much better.

Ahh, these cupcakes.  We couldn't decide which pnes to get, so we got 8.  Yeah, but those $30 were well spent! ;)

Okay, that's all for me today!!  Have a great one!

What I’m Loving Wednesday


Hey there! Another link up day.  I think it is so crazy how fast the weeks go during the summer.  And the days?  Don’t get me started, but I guess that’s what happens when you can sleep in:) I LOVE summer:)

Okay, so I had so much fun linking up with Covered in Glitter and Glue last week, I thought I would go for it again!


So, here we go…


2 of my favorite t.v. shows are back

Big Brother…I love this show.  I look forward to it every year. 


Dexter.  I love this show.  I caught up with it a couple years ago, and I love all the twist and turns it takes.  It’s the last season, hope it’s a good one.



A new app that just came out last night, midnight?  I already know it’s going to be a favorite.  I have loved Rhonna’s designs since my scrapbooking days and love that she has her own app.  Take a look.



Look it up!  You wont regret it!  I think I may like it better than Elsie’s app (A Beautiful Mess).


I finished a new item this week!  Yay!  It is a packet to accompany the Mathstart book, Seaweed soup.  It comes with some fun items that you can use with the book. Click the picture to take a look.



Cross-stitching.  I have come back to my first crafty love that was long abandoned for scrapbooking 8 years ago.  It feels good to get back to itSmile


That’s it!  Thanks for stopping in!
