Five for Friday ...on a Saturday!

AHHH! I'm so excited! Why am I linking up on Saturday, rather than Friday?

Well, because of this...

I'm in Chicago for the weekend for the 1st annual Midwest Teacher Blogger Meet Up! I left right after school yesterday, and got in about 8:15ish. I waited for my friend Jameson, and her bestie Kirsten to arrive so we could start getting goody bags ready.

I was so fortunate enough to have U.S. Cellular's Calling All Teachers complete my funding for my 3rd Donor's Choose Project for 6 Hokki Stools. They arrived on Monday and I cannot tell you how much my students and I are in love with them. One boy in particular, who I've been struggling with helping, used one during his spelling test, and he was so FOCUSED on it I couldn't believe it. You better believe I will have him grab one for every stinking test he takes!

I've made the plunge into adding pre-designed templates on my blog design site. I originally never wanted to create pre-designs, because I prided myself in making everything custom. After doing, oh like 30 designs now, I've realized that I have so many ideas for designs, and I can't exactly change MY design every week...well I guess I could, but ya know. SO, I thought, well maybe there are some people who want a design that's cute, but don't necessarily know what they want...maybe this could be for them...and they're only $20. Two of them are available here now!

Okay, I just have to share this picture, because Maxwell decided to pose when I started packing.

Conferences are Thursday and next Tuesday....hmph!
That's all I have to say about that.


  1. I have conferences coming up, too! I should be prepping for them instead of reading blogs! Maxwell looks ridiculously cute. I like your blog templates. I think it was a great idea to offer some options. Have a great week!

  2. Have a blast at the meet up! I love the stools, but what is so special about them?

  4. I hope the meet up was fun. I wanted to go, but I am 6 hours away. I love those stools- they look so comfortable. Good luck with conferences! I am also a beginning teacher :)
