Nails, Book Baskets, Drawers, Burlap, & Love

This week I have decided to like up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five For Friday to add a little mix.

Last night I put on my very first set of Jamberry nails!  Wow, is all I can say.  I wasn’t quite sure what all the hype was about, but now I completely get it.  My first choice of wraps weren’t too crazy, but I’m already making a list of what I’m doing next!  Woohoo!

The Dollar Tree!!!  I cashed out with these awesome baskets at the Dollar Tree!  I contemplated on whether to get them or not, but couldn’t decided.  I finally decided to go for it, went to pick them up, and they were gone!  Thank you internet!  I found them HERE!  The only downfall with ordering from the site is that I had to order a set of 36.  Since, I’m using them for my classroom library I was able to justify the purchase. 🙂

Of course I had to make a set of classroom library labels for these beautiful things.  You can find them HERE.

I have had two of these stored in my garage for about 5 months now, and I can’t wait to use them!  The best part…. I found  them at Sam’s Club for a bargain of a price.  They were $24.98 and still are!  What?!?!  You can find them HERE.

I found this super cute teal polka dot burlap at Wal-Mart this week.  Unfortunately, they only had one roll.  This means I will have to take another trip.  Oh, my!  As you can see, I’m a bit excited about decorating my classroom!

Last, but certainly not least, is my daughter.  I snapped this picture while I was working in my office.  I had her set up on her own computer playing on  I LOVE this girl, and I love teaching because it allows me to be with her every single day during the summer!  Not to mention that she goes to school with me every morning and meets me back at my room every afternoon!  Love, love, love!!!!


That’s it, my 5 for Friday!  Do you have a favorite to share?
