Home again home again and a linky!!!

I am finally home to my house!!!! I am so excited and so was my baby girl. She could hardly wait to see her little "Gussy Bear", our chihuahua (btw, he can't stand her, bless her heart). She wanted him to sleep with her so bad tonight and he just wouldn't do it. I am so excited about spending time with my husband this weekend, then he is gone starting Monday for a conference. It's ok though, I will be by myself for 3 days because he is taking my little girl to stay with his parents....I can hardly wait I am so sad:(

Today I am linking up with Halle from Across the Hall in 2nd for a fun linky....

It's all about beauty basics this week and this is perfect for me:) I have one and only one tonight because I just recently fell in love with Jamberry Nails!!! If you haven't heard of them, you really need to check them out!! They are the newest and greatest nail craze!! There are hundreds of fund designs and if you can't find a design you like, you can design your own...WHAT??? They last for up to 2 weeks on your fingernails and 4 weeks or more on your toenails. This is so fantastic because I have a little one that makes it impossible to get to the nail salon. So they are easy and way affordable, since one whole sheet can do your fingernails and toenails twice....that is AMAZING!!! Check out some of these awesome designs....

 Oh, and did I mention that they have junior sizes too for the little ones in your life?? I know, it is getting better and better every second:) Check out these super cute Junior designs!!!

I know you will love them!!! Check them out HERE!!!!!

That's all for tonight, and until we chat again, make every moment lovely!!!

Wednesday link and classroom pack input

It's Wednesday and I am finally back at my mom's house after a few days away. I got to see my husband tonight for an hour or so and my sweet Ava Lee was super excited!! I will be with Mom one more day, then it will be home again home again for a little peace and quiet, at least until it is time to start packing and moving...yuck:/ 
I am joining up this Wednesday for the first time ever with Covered in Glitter and Glue for her What I'm Loving Wednesday Linky!! Here it goes....

What I am loving most about today is that I got to see my sweet hubby, even if it was for a short time, today. I have been in and out of town several times this summer and he has not been able to be with us because he is summer school principal:(/ Tomorrow is his last day and he will be picking me up after my first ever Jamberry Nails party (very excited about that...him picking me up and the Jamberry Party). 

The 2nd thing I am loving about today is that I know good things are happening in our sweet little families life and I just hope they all come together quickly!!
Those are the things I am happy about for today...I might sneak another one in later on tonight...we will see:)

I am looking to make some classroom decor packs, but I was wondering what all of you would like to see in a classroom pack? So far I am going to include; calendar numbers and headers, behavior charts, and teacher binder cover. What else would be good to include? Thanks for your help and input...I want it to be good. 

I hope all of you have a great Wednesday evening and until tomorrow and as always, make every moment lovely!!!

New and exciting changes!!!

It has been so long since my last post, but I am determined to blog more now that summer is here!! First, I wanted to let all of you know that I am starting a new career adventure that I am super excited about!!! I am finally going to be a librarian!!! Yes, you heard that right, a librarian!! Not only will I be a librarian, I will be the pull out teacher for the GT students at my school!!! With that, I hope to gear this blog toward literacy for all ages...which is something I love!!!

The downfall to me becoming a librarian is that my family and I have to move once again, and it's a hard move because we love College Station so much!! The good thing about moving though, is that we will be closer to both sides of our family...come on date night:)

I know that being a librarian is going to have many stressers of its own, but I hope to embark on many hobbies I have always wanted to try, such as writing, and making teacher packets for Teachers Pay Teachers, as well as dabbling in invitations and blog creation. I am so new to all of it, but I think it is something I would really love to do.

I feel that I could be a really good writer, but there are 2 things that are so hard for me...
1. Coming up with ideas to write about
2. Finding the time to write, when I want to read, craft, make blog things, or make TPT items...

I guess it is just something I need to jump in head first and see if I can do it. I am definitely not a quitter, so it should be interesting. If anybody has any advice for me, I would greatly appreciate it!! I am going to lurk around Teachers Write 2013 for a while before I actually start, but send me some ideas so I can get writing on my first book!! I'm not sure if I want to do a children's book or a Young Adult. I look forward to hearing from all of you!!

Other things I have been thinking about are how to incorporate my new library into my blog? What should I include? What are somethings kids would like to see? What are some things teachers/librarians would like to see? I was thinking about a book spotlight, or author of the month...etc. I have thought about doing a book club for kids, but not sure how I could get that to work. I think there would have to be some kind of sign in for privacy and I don't know how to do that through blogger, it might have to take place in a Google Doc....Any ideas??? For now, the blog name will stay the same, but the contents will be geared more toward the library than to the classroom.

I am also looking into setting up a Facebook to keep in touch with people as well to talk about books!!

In other news, I am linking up with Tori's Teacher Tips in her Bloglovin' Blog Hop!!!

I hope to hear from you with great ideas and as always, make every day lovely!!!
