These Are a Few of My Favorite Things plus a FREEBIE!!

Hi Friends! Happy Tuesday!,
I am all about the linkies lately! Just when I think I've done them all, another one pops up. Tonight I'm going to link up with Mary from Sharing Kindergarten for "My Favorite Things" linky.
I have so many favorite things that this is going to be hard to narrow down. Here we go...hold on for the ride!
1. My Keurig: My Keurig...my friend! 
Keurig Elite Brewing System B40 - Coffee machine
I would be L-O-S-T without my Keurig in the mornings. It is the reason why I am usually pretty perky and cheerful in the morning. This was one of the best inventions that the coffee industry ever came out with!!
2. Pinterest:
 My teaching career literally changed when I found Pinterest. I hated bookmarking ideas that I couldn't remember what it looked like or where it was from. I have found so many wonderful ideas & it has gotten my creative juices flowing again. I am creating my own projects and feel completely inspired!
     3. Scentos: Oh my smelly markers!!
I can't get enough of these!! How can you not love smelly markers?!? These take me back in time to my childhood memories of drawing with these in art class. They are so awesome!
  4. My daughter Summer!
How could I not love this face?!?! As challenging as she may be at the fun age of 2 (almost 3), she is my reason for EVERYTHING!!
5. Blogging: 
Blogging is another thing that has changed my teaching career completely. Thanks to everyone sharing and collaborating, my love for teaching has been brought to a whole new level! You all are the BEST!
6. Pedicures:
I love getting pedicures!! I never did much to pamper myself before, but started getting pedicures a year or so ago on a regular basis. I love my toes looking pretty & it's so relaxing!
What are your favorite things? Go and link up with Mary at Sharing Kindergarten and tell us!
Time for the FREEBIE!!!

3 more days left for me! I think I can...I think I can!! :)
Until the next time!,


  1. I bet you do love pedicures! Living in Florida, your feet have to be looking good at all times! I only get 2 pedi's a year...summer and back to school time! I do love them, though! What part of Florida are you in? My parents have a place in Bradenton that we visit twice a year.


    1. I am right smack in the middle between Daytona Beach and Orlando. I do wear opened toe shoes a lot because of the weather, so it is definitely a push to keep my toes looking good. :)

  2. Your daughter is SERIOUSLY adorable!! I feel ya' on the challenging part! I have an almost 4 year old and 18 month old boy - and boy are they rambunctious!

    1. Thank you Nicole!! It is definitely exhausting keeping up with them, isn't it?...especially after a long day of chasing after a class full of students! lol :)

  3. Cute little :) Thank you for the freebie. I love it. The graphics are perfect for it and I love how you created a recording sheet as well. I feel it is a great addition to any activity to have the kiddos use a recording sheet :)

    1. No problem! I am happy to share! I'm glad you like it. I definitely agree about using a recording sheet because I feel it's important for the students to be accountable for their work in order to make sure that they are understanding the concept. :)

  4. I love pedicures too! Do you get the gel toes? I love them. They last me a long time. Where do you find the Scentos at?


    1. Ooh I didn't know about the Gel Toes! I'll have to ask about that! I found my Scentos at Michael's a few months ago. I know that Wal Mart also carries them. :)

  5. Oooh, I love smelly markers, too.
    I also love your daughter's name! I knew a little girl once whose name was Stormy!!

    I've been out for awhile, but I bet I have to go back before you...We report back August 13th, school starts the 16th.
