Making a Comeback! (Hopefully!)

I'm back! Again. ;) I am truly going to make an effort to get back into the land of blogging again after a LOOONG vacation (sort of). My on-the-side-almost -bit-off-more-than-I-could-chew photography business really took off this year and left no time for blogging. After finding out that my husband and I are expecting our second child (a boy due in April!), I decided that photography needed to be moved to the back burner. So, I finished up the sessions that I had on the books and took a break. Then, I got bored and decided that blogging again was something that I could do without taking so much time away from my growing family. So here I am!

Here are some pictures of what I have been up to this week while we have been out for SNOW.

Common Core Organization

I brought home my Common Core Standards Posters that I purchased from Deanna Jump at the beginning of the year to finally organize. I still have some tweaking to do, but what I did will work for now. :) I got the idea from Jennifer at First Grade Blue Skies (who I happen to teach with, lucky me!). Check out her post about how she organized hers here.
Awesome Wal-Mart Find!
 On a "neccessities run" to Wal-Mart today, I found these awesome containers! I know I am behind the band wagon on using these, but I can never find them when I am out. I snatched up two packs today (all they had) and can't wait to use them in my stations!
Getting ready for St. Patty's Day :)
I have also been working on a new St. Patrick's Day Pack for kindergarten and first grade. I hope to finish it up this weekend and have a giveaway for it next week, so stay tuned!
I plan on taking some pictures of my classroom Monday to share with you all before my maternity leave starts (as of right now April 7th is the big day!). Hope that everyone has a great weekend!



  1. I love St. Patrick's day! Can't wait to see how your product turns out.

    The Math Maniac

    1. I can't wait to share it with people! I keep thinking that I am almost finished and then another idea comes to me and I just have to add to it!

  2. I love those containers from Walmart, too! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Newest follower!

  3. I need to stop at WalMart to look for those containers. I am a new follower! Thanks for stopping by my blog.

    Kindergarten To The Core

    1. Julie,
      I found them on the small display racks that they have hanging throughout the grocery section. :) Thanks for following!

  4. Congrats! I've been slacking on the blogs lately because I've been so busy.

    Down the Learning Road

    1. Thanks Linda! It is so hard to find the time to post to a blog. I am getting a facebook page in the works for my blog/tpt store so hopefully that will make it a little easier. Good luck to you!
