My Favorite Things Giveaway! Matilda Jane

Ok, so this post isn't school related at all.  However, my plan was to do some of my favorite things giveaways this summer and let's face it...I'm totally in love with Matilda Jane Clothing.  Matilda Jane was so great to work with in setting up this giveaway.  I explained how much I adored their clothing for my little girls, and they were more than happy to give a prize to one of my sweet readers!  

Now, listen, if you don't have children or girls for that matter...no worries.  They sell women's clothing as well!  Precious!  Or, what a great pay it forward opportunity for any little girl that you know...niece, friend, granddaughter!  Anyone can enter!!

I just had to post some of their adorable clothing (modeled by my girls)  for you all to see!  So how did I make, beg, plead, bargain get them to try on 4 different outfits, you ask???  Have a Fashion Show, of course!!!  So I'm like, "Girls, I know...let's play dress up and have a fashion show!"  And they're like, "Yeah!"  (It so worked)

I'm NO photographer, but I like to pretend to be!  Please take a seat so the fashion show can begin!  
***dim the lights*** 
***cue the music***

 Cake Walk Tank Dress
 Rollercoaster Tiered Dress

 Favorite Things Peasant Top and Red Rover Bennys
 Pontoon Halter Top and Masquerade Big Ruffles
 Bake Sale Top and Landscape Big Ruffles

Workin' On It Linky and Giveaway WINNER!!

Hey y'all!  Busy does not even  begin to describe our summer so far...but I love it and wouldn't have it any other way!  So far, we've been up to our ears in swimming lessons...my girls are getting so good y'all...which makes this momma who tends to freak out when it comes to water happy!  And, VBS starts next week!  My sis and I are teaching music class so we've been practicing learning all the songs and motions!!  Anybody else out there doing Agency D3?  I love the songs!  Here's a couple of pictures of my little cuties.  Can you tell the personality differences?!?  HA!

In other news, I've really been working hard on getting my to-do list shorter as far as units go.  Last summer, I was totally lazy then when it was time for school I was in a panic trying to get things made.  So, I'm trying to do better.  Here's what I've been working on and am currently working on.  
 I absolutely loved my Hands On Alphabet Journal from last school year, so I knew I wanted one for math as well!  
I learned how to merge products so I can bundle!!  Yay for me!




These two aren't finished yet!  Hopefully soon!


Any suggestions, ideas, or need for either of these 2 packets??  Please leave comments below!!
Congrats to Amy B. #427 for winning the easel giveaway!! You've been e-mailed! 
Thanks to everyone for participating and be looking for another fun giveaway coming soon!

Five for Friday!

Hey y'all!  My first week of summer is almost behind us and it's been a busy one.  If you read my last post you know that I've got a lot to do this summer...not much of anything way important, but just little things.  If you didn't see it, just scroll down to find it.  I'm linking up with Kacey over at Doodle Bugs for Five for Friday.

1.  I cooked a new thing!  You're gonna die when I tell you what it is...promise not to laugh....pan-fried pork chops!  HA!  No, I don't cook much...so it was a first for me and I was proud because everyone at the table loved them!  I forgot to take a picture.  Shoot.

2.  My girls and I and the hubs have been playing board games...our newest one is Eye Found It.  Have you ever heard of it?  It's a disney game the girls got for Christmas.  It's like a Giant 6 ft. long board with all things disney and you have to spy certain things before the clock strikes midnight.

3.  Are you on Instagram?  You can follow me here if you are.  If you already follow me you know that I found a new chair for my classroom!  I'm in love.  After seeing Michelle's chair on Instagram I just had to have one myself.  And, it's half-off price made it even better.  Look at it.  Isn't it great?!  You *might* can find one at Hobby Lobby if they aren't sold out!

4.  "I hate playin' in the rain!", said NO kid EVER!  Just so happened after a cast lunch it was pouring rain and our car was a few minutes walk away...Oh well!  That's just one thing to check off my Summer Bucket List!  Fun, fun!
5.  Speaking of CAST, my daughter is a little orphan in the Annie Jr. Play at her school!  It is absolutely adorable!  We eat, sleep, and breathe Annie right now.  Like, everyone in our house knows every word to every song, knows all the lines from every character, and the right motions to do.

Well, that about sums up my week.
If you're still reading, I've got something GREAT up my sleeve for *hopefully* next week!  Can't wait to share it with you.  Follow my blog so you don't miss out!
Would love to read your comments below.  :)

10 Things I Want to do this Summer Linky!


Hey y'all!  It's our first "official" day of summer and I'm linking up with Deanna over at Mrs. Jump's Class for the 10 Things I want to do the Summer Linky!  Here goes, in no particular order...

Organize my kitchen cabinets!
Anybody have any good ideas on how to store all those plastic lids for your tupperware???
 Organize pretty much every closet in our house...there's stuff thrown up there that I honestly don't know what to do with...but my mission is to find a place for everything!
 I've had this chalk wall for quite some time now and have some ideas for it, but I'm hoping to get it really going this summer.
 I want to spend LOTS of quality time with my babies...when I say quality I mean, playing games, reading books, riding bikes, having picnics, playing in general, having sleepovers...the whole she-bang!  I want to enjoy every minute with them!!
 Go back to the beach!!  6 weeks...can't wait!
 Get a head start on planning his 2nd B'day party!  I know once school starts, I'll forget about planning and have to throw something together last minute and I do NOT want that...
We're doing a Pirate Party and I've already been pinning like crazy!

Drink more water...y'all...I'm bad...really bad about drinking water.  
I need to do better.
Exercise...I hate it!  
There's nothing about it that sounds enticing to me...but, I need to walk...I have this treadmill upstairs at my house and it never gets used...
Learn how to cook some new dishes...that are quick and easy...things I can make during hectic school life.
And, work a little on school stuff...I have a *few* (doesn't even begin to say how many) things on my to do list that I want to get done in 8 weeks!

What are you doin' this summer?
Have a favorite recipe?  Leave the link below :)

Getting Your Room Ready for Summer Break

Hey y'all!  I have 7 days of school left!  Eeek!  So excited!  I am in full force cleaning mode...and so are my kids.  Yes, they help me clean, organize, & sort everything in the room from, games, books, manipulatives....you name it, we clean it!  So, that's what we've been doing a lot of this week already.  Plus, this is the perfect time of year to get some extra sunshine (wink, wink).  Some fun things I've planned for this week are bubbles, sidewalk chalk, stuffed friend picnic, popcorn and a movie, AND, we have field day Thursday with all kinds of fun planned by our coach.  Check out Cara's cutie patootie ideas HERE.  She has some wonderful things planned for her kiddos!  Here's a few pictures of how my kids help me organize.

A full Lost and Found Tub = Not good.
 To find where all the "extras" go I have my kids play every game and raise their hand when they are done.  I check each piece to make sure they played it correctly...then I jot down on a sticky note which pieces are missing.  Sometimes, we find pieces in other boxes too...not just the lost and found.  So, as we find missing pieces,  I mark out the piece we found.  
 Sorry for the sideways picture...could NOT get it to turn in blogger...
If a game has all the pieces, it gets a smiley sticky.  I like labeling them so even during summer if I find pieces I know where to look.
 Once games get a smiley, they go on a shelf and aren't touched again...until next school year.
 I wish the shelves in my room looked this good all year long....yeah right.  
My kiddos organize each shelf after we check them, to make them look nice and neat.
This is the finished product. 
 While they were playing their games and finding missing pieces, I was unwrapping our new Reading Series materials and organizing those so I won't have to do that this summer.
 Plus, I've already started running copies and die-cutting things for the beginning of next year!!
Makes me happy!

What do you do to get your room ready for summer?
Have you started looking at your August plans yet?
