Secret Santa Gift Exchange!

Hi Friends!

I can't believe it's been a minute since I posted, but I will be back to work soon - In more ways than one!  I head back into the classroom after my maternity leave on Monday - EEK!

Today, though I will be sharing with you my AMAZING present from my super sweet secret santa!

Check out the box that arrived - Can you say love??

Then, I found my favorite flair pens!  (Of course as you can see my little one has claimed them as her own!)

And for my sweet tooth - these Sweedish Fish, which didn't last the day!

Now, I'll be honest I had never used a bath bomb before, but it smells AMAZE-ING and I am looking forward to using it over holiday break!!

Then of course for my LOVE of crafting I get to shop - and shop I will!

Thanks to my sweet secret santa for all the goodies - I hope Santa is good to you all!!

What I Want For Christmas...

Now that I am heading back to work after the baby, I need some shall we say roomier clothing options - I'm hoping Santa brings me some cute clothes.

Baby TJ is not sleeping through the night, so I hope for lots of coffee!

Laborless Blog Hop!

Hello everyone!

Main Graphic Laborless

It is Finally here!

Today I am linking with Laura from Where the Magic Happens, Krista from Teaching Momster, and Lisa from PAWsitively Teaching! I have joined forces once again with my bloggy friends to bring you the best, most amazing giveaway on this Labor Day weekend!
All of us have been thinking about  good ways in which to treat our readers and followers.   We thought hard, and I mean it! Really, really hard… and decided that  we can treat you to our best ideas to work smarter rather than harder… at school and home!
I know what it takes to be a great teacher, the stress, the time, the energy… I could go on and on! I also know that we crave time to ourselves and our families.

So here I go!


 I LOVE these homework folders and offices from one of my favorites Fluttering Through First Grade...

I bought this pack last year to make these AMAZING home/school folders:

This year, I made the folders again, but I also modified them to make some privacy shields too.

I am excited to use these again this year!  What do you think??


Do what you love - and find something mindless to enjoy after a long day...

Much to my husband's dismay - I have been addicted to Big Brother ever since season 2 - even before I started dating him.  

I'm not sure if it's because I have extra time in the summer or if it's just something fun (and mindless) to watch, but every summer it grips me.  

Though I will say this summer has NOT been my favorite!  Anyone else watch?  What are you thinking about this season??


I am super excited to share with you some goodies from my store for September - including one that is BRAND spankin new!

My team and I started using a Guided Math model last year and LOVED it, but we felt like we needed to check in with kids in a meaningful way - so exit slips are the perfect solution!

The exit slips are organized by month.  I have a Aug/Sept pack and October pack ready to go!  I also decided to make a Growing Bundle, so if you like what you see you can get a whole year for a HUGE discount - especially if you buy now!

I also have this awesome updated word wall for grade 1 in my store.  I love the new digital papers and navy/teal/pink color theme!

Finally, I have been in make over mode with my store.  My grade 2 phonics packs have been the first on the list.  This one would be great for review at the beginning of the year - bonus letters (hall, fluff, etc) and glued sounds (-ang, -unk, etc.)

I have placed all of these items on sale for 20% for today and tomorrow only!!

Top all these great tips and ideas  with these top-notch prizes!
