Let's Get Acquainted and Currently!

Another fun linky from Mrs. Reed at Flying into First Grade!

 This week is a favorites survey so here are a few of my favorites!

Favorite places to shop:


Favorite TV Shows:

Favorite Snack:

Oh my goodness, these SO are good!

Favorite Sweet Treat:

HEB's Creamy Creations Dulce de Leche Ice Cream 

There are no words to describe how GOOD this is!!

Favorite Scents:

 Pure has a sweet, clean smell.

SJP NYC by Sarah Jessica Parker smells like strawberries!

Favorite Hair Product:

Aquage Uplifting Foam

I have to tell you about Aquage because this stuff is AMAZING! I have thin hair and when I wear it straight (I have wavy hair) it just falls flat. Yuck! But not with Aquage! It gives my hair serious volume. No other product has done this for my hair. It's expensive but worth every penny!

Time for April's currently! (April already?!)



The 5th graders I tutor will take the STAAR test tomorrow. I wanted to give them a little treat and encourage them to do their best. They were a hit! They're nervous and this calmed their nerves a bit. One group even started calling me 'Miss Smartie Pants'! Ha! You can read about them here.


My BFF, Lucy, is getting her gallbladder removed as I write this. I'm not worried, I know she's in God's hands and He's got this. I'm just waiting to hear from her how it went.


I am a bit obsessed with dinosaurs! I've seen this move 465, 867 times and I cannot wait to see it in 3D! It'll be the first movie I see in 3D! Sad, I know. :)

I need a trim but I don't want to do it myself or I'll end up with bangs like this...
I haven't been blogging or selling for very long so I don't feel like I have much advice to offer as I am still learning. I spent months visiting blogs, grabbing freebies here and there. I thought about starting a blog of my own and selling on TpT but I was plagued with every beginner's questions: Will anyone read? Will anyone buy? I can now answer YES! You never know how a simple activity or product will bless someone or 20 little someones. So if you're thinking about starting a blog or selling on TpT, my advice (and Nike's) is 
Just Do It!

There's a wonderful community of educators that are more than happy to help.

Mrs. Stanford from Mrs. Stanford's Class is a perfect example. She is having a blogging 101 tutorial series right now!

Be sure to link up with Farley and Mrs. Reed!
I'm off to read on how to cutify my blog! :D


  1. Walking Dead is the best!! I just hate that I have to wait so long until it comes on again:( I love your advice! It's so true just do it. They will come;) It is hard at first and I still have those fears even though I've been blogging for nearly a year. I can't say enough good things about TpT. It really has changed my life as a teacher and creator. I know my kiddos enjoy all the goodies I print off for them.

  4. The bangs pictures made me laugh out loud! And I have to start watching Walking Dead. We went on a field trip to the GA Aquarium & they were filming a scene there (the rest of the filming is close to my house). The kids went nuts seeing a zombie & the adults went crazy about what is actually was! Too funny! :)
