Sunday Smorgasboard

Hello, Friends!

Today, I'm linking up with the sweet Michelle from Fabulous in First for her Sunday Smorgasboard linky.

I have to admit.  I've been LAZY this week.  Monday, we can get into our classrooms to start decorating, so I've been doing pretty much nothing all week.  It's been great.  I feel like my summer is over.  I go back to work "officially" in a couple of weeks.  We even got our class rosters this week, which means summer is pretty much over.  I can't wait my sweet new kiddos.

I turned 27 on Wednesday.  I don't like that I'm in my late 20's.  I know that I am not "old"  but it's hard to believe that I am getting closer to 30. To make myself feel a little better, I bought this ADORABLE dress from Etsy.  

Since we got the email that we an can work on our classrooms next week, I've been busy laminating and cutting during Brayden's nap time.  I feel productive already! I'm almost done.  I have to cut out the other half of my word wall headers and my clock decor.  Then, I've got to wait to get paid so I can get more ink.  I go through some ink at the beginning of they year!

Messy picture on the couch!

I've had these lovely things sitting in my living room for a month.  I'm ready to go put these in my classroom and have my living room back.  I have 4 boxes from Really Good Stuff waiting on me at work.  My wonderful secretary told me that she'd hold them in her office until I get there.  I was not looking forward to the look on my husband's face when I got 4 more boxes delivered to the house.  He knows I bought more, but it helps that he doesn't get to "see it".  

The day after my birthday, my little munchkin' got sick.  His temperature spiked to 101.  He just felt "blah" all day.  I hate when my little one doesn't feel good.  Luckily, he woke up the next morning with at temperature of 98.6.  We are back to running and playing! 

I finished another partner set.  This one has a monster theme.  I just can't decide which one I was to use.  I've made a set of mustaches, owls, and monsters so far.  

And...that's been my week.  Like I said, I have been really lazy!

I hope everyone has a relaxing Sunday.  I'm getting ready to head to a shrimp boil later today for my mother-in-law's birthday.  Love me some shrimp!

Lots of love,


  1. Oooh, so jealous of your baskets! As soon as I get a bit (or more than a bit) of extra money saved up, I am SO ordering some for my classroom!

    Great post...sorry your little one was sick, that is never fun!

    1. I've been making myself save money so that I could finally make an order. Good luck saving up some money. :-)

  2. Shrimp!! Yummy! I hope you had a great time and she had a wonderful birthday. I love all your colorful baskets. I have been printing and laminating at home for things at school. I love having a laminator at home. It is so nice. Thanks for sharing your pictures. I am a second grade teacher also and a new follower. Visit my blog if you have some time.

    1. I agree. It is so nice to have a laminator at home. :-) Thanks for stopping by my blog, I'll stop by yours as well.

  3. Happy birthday! That dress is so cute. Where did you get it? I'm always looking for cute etsy shops.
    Have fun getting into your classroom this week!
