read alouds


I am linking up for my first Currently! Here we go!

I hope to get all of these rules right! 

To a creepy 20/20 episode about people who cheat and date all sorts of people... while their married. Why am I watching this? Oh yea, my boyfriend has it on... whew not my choice! he he

How I am sitting on the floor trying to type and my dog is bumping into me and dropping her ball so I can throw it. Most of the time while I am trying to blog or create a unit my dog will literally drop her ball on my laptop.  Sometimes a program will close because of this. She is lucky that she is literally the cutest thing in the world.

That I spent too much money today at the mall.
I went to the mall today for the first time in a long time. It is now March and well frankly I need new clothes. I feel like I have lost my style since I began teaching so I needed to update the wardrobe a bit. I did not do a good job but I did spend a good chunk of money.  Here is what I got! :)

This is what happened while trying to lay out my clothes.
I got 5 different shirts from Express. They are having a great deal right now. Buy on Tee and get the other one for $9.90!  
Like I said... spring is coming and I needed cute new shoes that I could wear with my colorful jeans for school! No more leather boots! Cute bright jeans and shirts! Yayyy!!

I finally made my way into Bare Minerals store. I have horrible, horrible skin! It is oily (which I will love when I am older).. its just not good skin. So, I have been on the search for a great foundation that looks natural and wears well. I hope I found some. I got the Customizable starter kit and then I got some blush for some color (since I give up tanning about a year ago) and then i also got some facial cleanser pads that are supposed to help with little bumps all around my face. The pads are in the small pink and cream colored box.  It is called Intensive GlowPads Brightening Treatment advanced formula for vibrant skin.

I began a unit on sun's energy and how it transfers energy to the earth and I want/need to finish it. I want to teach this unit next week so it has to get done very very soon. So far I have written two non-fiction books. One on facts about the sun and another on energy and how the sun energy gives energy to different things on earth. I want to think of some activities and a craft to include with it. I bought a pack from Tpt to help supplement this unit.

Full of Energy {Science Unit on Sound, Light and Heat Energy}

To grade a huge stack of papers.  I always wait until the end of the week to grade students station handouts and well students still have one more station to complete since we had a snow day this week. But, I will need to get started on these tomorrow.

**Like, Love, Hate**
This was tough.. thinking of 3 things that all start with W.
So here they are. I like Winter...I don't love it but it is pretty.
I love waffles... that's the only thing I could find that I love that started with W. I wanted to stay Warm Coffee but I could only use one word.
I hate... wedgies?..only /w/ word I could think of!

Now onto linking up with 2 previous blogs!

Have a fantastic weekend!!


  1. I went to the mall today pay a bill! lol I would have much rather gone shopping, but we were busy today. I have a stack of response to literature papers to grade...ugh!


  2. Awww, paying a bill is not as much fun! Maybe you can go shopping soon! Spring sales should be coming up! Good luck with your literature papers!

  3. I found your blog through the Currently Linky Party! Your dog is so stinkin' cute. I have been thinking about switching over to BM makeup too. I have heard really good stuff about it:) Glad that I found your blog. I am your newest follower :)

  4. Aw thanks! She is so darn ornery! I love the make-up so far. I got it done at the mall and it still looks good 4 hours later! You should definitely try it! Thanks for becoming a follower!!

  5. I found you on Farley's Currently. Your dog is adorable. I love the shoes. I am wanting some new spring ones myself. After watching a girls basketball game, where one was wearing too small of a uniform, I agree with your hate. Wedgies are not nice!

  6. Marcia, that is so funny! These shoes are so comfortable! Their from Aldo and the price really isn't that bad. They can be worn with anything!

  7. So glad to find you through Farley's Currently. Your blog is adorable, and I'm proud to be your newest follower. :) I love Bare Minerals (I have oily skin too)...hope it works for you. Love your new shoes! You've inspired me to do some spring shopping! I'll stop back soon for another visit. :)

  8. Thank you! Good luck shopping! There are actually a lot of great deals out there right now! Thanks for becoming my newest follower! :)

  9. One of the things I wanted was a shopping spree! I'm in a winter funk as well and I'm tired of the same winter clothes. I need to transition into spring!!!!

    I have oily skin, too. I've been using BareMinerals since college. I saw it on QVC a few times and I'm totally a sucker for watching those shows. One time they had a great starter deal and I was *sold* and I've been using it ever since. I go to Sephora for my refills because I can get points! (and sometimes I may ask for a free sample or two.)

    Found you through the linky.

    You Might Be a First Grader...

  10. I was using Sephora foundation that was made for oily skin but it wasn't working very well. It just sat on my face and didn't blend in very well! Your making me feel better about my purchase! Does Sephora have Bare Minerals?

  11. Thanks for the shout out friend!

  12. Ooh -- Wedgies! Good, I mean bad one!
    I found your blog through Kickin' it in Kindergarten's giveaway! I am your newest follower :)

  14. I just found you through a linky. W... you are right, that's a hard letter to choose Like, Love, Hate ideas. I think you were right on with hating wedgies. Very clever answer. :)
