Head over to The Picture Book Teacher's Edition to link up for the Thumbs up, Thumbs down linky party!!!


long day...but a good ending!!

What a long day it was, but it ended lovely!! I had my unannounced observation today...bummer:( Oh well, at least is over, that is all I have to say about that! I did get to wear pajamas today and that was fun, but tomorrow is dress up as a character and I'm just not feeling it, so it looks like I'm not going to participate in that...but I do get to wear jeans and that makes me smile.
I was supposed to do another door today, but my friend didn't bring the stuff, it was going to be soooooo cute...Daisy Head Maisey:) Very cute book too!! My lovelies are going to be soooo excited tomorrow when we make "green eggs and ham" or at least my version, since I am against egg....yuck to me:) We are doing pudding with green food coloring and a nilla wafer, now that sounds delicious!! We have benchmarks next week and I hope and pray my lovelies perform is always so nerve-racking even though you know you have taught your heart out...I am sure they will do GREAT!!! I am so glad tomorrow is Friday, just one more week until spring break and it is much needed! Finally, head on over to Tonya's Treat for Teachers and join her 700 follower giveaway!!! It is going to be a GREAT one!!!

"Ava"ism of the day!!
I was so not happy at 3:00 this morning when my little love bug decided it was time to get up, but as she laid their next to me, I just smiled and found joy in the fact that I got to have a few more hours with her!! Then I thought I was going to be really late at work, so I was going to have to pick her up and bring her back because her daddy did have to work late, but it turned out, I was able to leave at the normal time. So, I picked her up and we went on a dinner date. I love spending time with my little lovely...she has a way of always making me happy, even when I am exhausted!!

Volume and Dr, Seuss...again

Hello friends,
It was a long, tough day, but a rewarding one to say the least. To begin, my kids ROCKED the volume test they had today!!! I'm not kidding either, they all PASSED....that is 100% of my kids passing a test!!! I told them if they all got 100, I would get them McDonald's...well, they didn't all get a 100, but they all passed with an 80 or higher....not sure what I should do?? Any thoughts?????

After school, I helped my teacher friend, teammate, friend out with her Dr. Seuss door...we decided on The Grinch and he turned out super de duper cute!!! What do all of you think???? Stay tuned for tomorrow, I think I will be doing one more door and I hope it turns out super cute!!!

Dr. Seuss, Grinch door

Have I told y'all how much I love this child??? She just makes my heart sing. She always wants to hold and me and just love on is so wonderful. I can remember a time when she was much younger that she was not into hugging and kissing, that is not the case anymore. She is so funny too, tonight we were showering together (to save time) and she put her basket on her head and kept saying, "it's raining (because the water was hitting her head), then she found a different bucket and put it on her Dora doll's head to protect her...hahahaha, silly girl. She has also perfected her high five joke that her daddy taught her....she loves to tell you, "up high, down low, you're too slow" Then she just cracks up laughing at herself! Tonight, while we said prayers, I would peek out and see what she was doing and she would be peeking at me with one...I couldn't help but laugh. And, finally, after several failed attempts at getting her to go to bed (and as I typed this now), we decided to lay down with her and we called her Nana and Papaw...they were so excited, as was she:) She told them she had a beautiful new purple car and asked if they wanted to buy it...hahaha, funny girl!!! Well, I know y'all are not as interested in those stories as I am, but I am using this blog as a journal for myself and Ava...I would love to be able to have these things down for her to hear one day and this is the only way I can think to do it!!

Scentsy Time!!!
Only 1 more day....hurry, if you want to take advantage of 10% off almost everything in the catalog!! Aside from that, today is Warmer Wednesday, one of my favorite days of the week, because I get to share and talk about beautiful Scentsy warmers....for today it is Cosmo, I love this warmer because I LOVE purple!!! I think this would look fantastic in any room to give it a pop of color.

Scentsy Cosmo warmer!!!

I also wanted to remind all of you of my Facebook fan page...we are at 48 now and I am trying my hardest to get to 100!! I would love to have your help. Please share my page with all of your friends and have them let me know you sent them, by posting on the page who sent them. When we reach 100, the person who has the most referrals  will win some fun Scentsy goodies...go there now and start referring, I would GREATLY appreciate any and of the help I can get!!!

That is all the lovely news I have for this evening, until tomorrow, I hope you all have a lovely day tomorrow!! Chat with you soon!!

Dr. Seuss, math review, and taxes...oh my!!!

It was a VERY busy day, and an exhausting one!!!! I ended up spending most of my day getting my kids ready for a volume test in math tomorrow...there are going to be some tough boogers on that test tomorrow, but that's ok...I sleep well knowing that I taught it pretty well! To make my day better, I got to wear jeans for Dr. Seuss day 2 because I wore blue:) Tomorrow is crazy sock day...sure hope I can locate some cute ones so I can wear jeans again tomorrow (See below for a list of activities our school is doing for Dr. Seuss week!!!!)

After school, my husband and I headed over to Jackson Hewitt to get our taxes filed...I must say, thank goodness we did, because what we thought was going to be in the red ended up being in the GREEN...can I get a WHOOP on that???? Since it ended up being a good thing at the tax office, we treated ourselves to Fuzzy's....yummo!!

"Ava"ism of the day...
she is now saying "oh my gosh"...I was wondering how long it was going to take her!! It is one of my favorite sayings...oh my gosh:) I want to also add that she did great while we were at our "meeting" with Jackson Hewitt....I absolutely love my sweet baby girl, she always makes me smile, even on tough days like today!!

Scentsy thought of the day....
Only 2 more days left to get 10% off the fall/winter catalog...hurry, don't wait....once the catalog is gone, the discontinued scents are gone too!!!! Visit my website to place your order. Also, "like" my Facebook page for more fun Scentsy stuff!!! I'm trying my hardest to get to 100!!!

Blog Changes!!!

Well lovely blog followers, I have decided to make some changes to my blog...I have found that while my students are my lovelies, it seems that there are more things in my life that are lovely to me too. So, instead of just talking about school stuff, I am now going to include EVERYTHING that is lovely in my life; family, Scentsy, crafts, cooking, etc...I hope you will stick around and enjoy this ride with me!!!
