Let me start off with an apology. I didn't realize until last night that I had "word verification" turned on. Apparently, it's a default setting. Sorry about that, folks! Those things drive me nuts! Let's move on...
Teacher Notes Box: This one was inspired by Pinterest. For the life of me, I can't find the pin. If anyone has the address, let me know and I'll add it.
Kiss Your Brain Jar:Amanda's Blog (Teaching Maddeness). I wasn't going to make one, but I saw this jar for cheap at the Christmas Tree Shop, so I decided to go ahead. The hardest part?? Deciding on letters. I seriously stood in Walmart for 20 minutes trying to decide which letters to buy. I don't normally switch back and forth with caps and lower case, but there weren't enough of each in the pack I bought... and I wasn't about to spend the money on a second pack. So... It just looks funky and fun! :)
Brownies: I don't have a big sweet tooth, but I do love brownies! What's more, I love slightly burnt brownies!! :) I picked up a $1 box of Duncan Hines brownies at the grocery store today. They are not the best brownies, but for $1, they're great!! :)
|Yep, I couldn't wait to taste them. :)|
**Update: I just realized I put the brownies in the refrigerator. WHY???
P.S. I have one last picture to share. Last night, I packed my car full of school stuff that will be taken on Tuesday. I would have done it tonight, but there is rain in the forecast and I didn't want to take the chance. So, as of last night, this is all the school stuff that is left in my apartment (that I didn't want exposed to outrageous heat)!! Woot!!
|And yes, those are twigs and that is a pumpkin. I never bothered to take down my fall decorations, but hey... It's almost fall, again!!! Too bad I have to pack it all up, though. Haha :)|
I was just asked to join a "teacher fashion" linky party for tips on how to dress. Mind you, I'm not the most fashionable girl (I just can't make myself care when I'm not trying to impress 5th graders), but I do know what's comfortable.
1. Do you have a favorite store for "teacher clothes"?
I am a loyal Kohl's shopper. While I realize that the prices are marked up only to be put on "sale", I cannot help but love the clothes. They are somewhat affordable and wear very well. New York & Company is good, too. I don't find their clothes quite as comfortable, though.
2. What are some of your favorite accessories?
I have to admit, I'm not an accessories girl. I wear my pearl studs, my Clemson ring, and my Citizen watch everyday and that's about it, besides my Clemson lanyard for my ID. :)
3. What type of shoes do you teach in?
If you're smart, you're not going to go for fashion where your feet are concerned. I'm lucky in that we are allowed to wear flip-flops every day of the week. So, if it's warm, I'm usually in my Rainbows. During the winter, I opt for Dansko's. They're comfy and ergonomically correct for your feet.
4. Do you have a "go-to" item in your closet?
My closet is full lightweight cardigans. They're great because you can wear them all year (especially when you want to wear a cute tank that isn't exactly school-appropriate. Like these:
5. Have you ever had a fashion "uh-oh" at school?
Ummm, last year, at the end of the day, I realized that a pair of my dress pants had a split in the back. Luckily, it was in a position that no one could see!!! :)
