Must- Have, Blogging and Turning 36 :)

This is my third week of school and I am still running around like a crazy person.  My to do list is disappearing s-l-o-w-l-y. Common Core, data collection, lesson plans, behavior issues, conferences, meetings, more data collection... are killing me!

Which brings me to my question:  How do you decide when to post? I get ideas, I take pictures and then suddenly run out of time! 

I turn 36 today. I was born at midnight, so I am 35 for at least 4 more hours.   I woke up to a nice card with gift cards to Kohl's and Target from my kids and the Mr..  My kids in the classroom brought beautiful cards, gift cards (Starbucks and Target), Skippy JonJones books, Skippy blank cards, Laffy taffy, cupcakes and a beautiful bracelet. I felt spoiled...and loved :)

Time for Some Blog Hoppin': Can't wait to see what you must have!

Happy Monday,


  1. I stumbled upon your blog and am so excited to find another fellow 2nd grade teacher. I am your newest follower and would love for you to stop by and follow me back.

  2. I see a Thirty One bag...I love mine too!

    As for your question...let me know when you fine the answer :)

    Happy {almost} 36th birthday!

  3. Hi Tania! Thanks for commenting on my blog! :) I love that Thirty One bag you have there - I just learned about those today. Now I need to go shopping! Maybe I'll buy one for myself for your birthday! ;)

  4. Happy Birthday!!! I love your background on your choices! SMILES!!!

  5. Happy Belated Birthday! I am with you on the blogging thing. I don't know how these teachers have the time to blog and create things to post on TpT. I am barely getting through my classroom "to-do" list and when I get home, I am so tired. I did finally post this last week but it had been almost a month since the last one. Time flys very fast. I love your site and I am going to add you to my list of 2nd grade blogs to visit. Thanks for introducing yourself.
