Five for Friday!

Hello!
Happy Friday! Where has this week gone?! I swear it was just Monday! I don't know about you all but I have been in back to school mode. All of a sudden I feel like time has run out and I still have so much to do! Today, I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for her Five for Friday linky! This week was a busy/productive week! Here is a recap :)

So first and foremost I started this book last night!

http://www.amazon.com/Crash-Course-Lessons-Students-Taught/dp/1451687702/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1406324464&sr=8-1&keywords=crash+course

I'm on chapter 6 right now and let me just say that I've laughed, I've cried, I've questioned every aspect of my teaching! Talk about inspiring! I am so intrigued...my hubs had to pull me away from the book twice already...since last night people!!! Seriously, if you don't have this book, you need to get it. I am already feeling so rejuvenated and inspired to go back to school and make a difference. Ahh I mean we really do have the best jobs ever! :)  At the rate I'm going I will probably finish it Sunday!


I've been working like crazy to get things finished and ready for the school year. I finished my August/September Writing Stations AND it is on sale until tomorrow! All you need to do it print, cut and laminate! It's ready to go :) Sooo happy it's done!

I shopped this week.... and yes I was the crazy woman in Wal-Mart that went through every box of composition notebooks so that I could find the neon ones. Totally worth the half hour :) 
Plus, they were $.50  a piece and there was NO LIMIT!! 
GO HURRY!




I also had some shopping success at Michael's. I found these adorable frames that I am going to use for my table signs. They had them in lots of different colors. I chose black because my caddies are bright colors. I thought it would be a nice contrast! They were only $2.00!!


Cute, cute, cute!!



Lastly, I received my second Stitch Fix this week!!
Let me tell you all about Stitch Fix! It is an online personal styling service. When you sign up, you fill out a brief survey that acquires your sizes, styles you prefer and items that you would like to avoid. You can also link your Pinterest styleboard to give your stylist more info! So then, for a $20 styling fee, a personal stylist will select 5 pieces for you!

Next, the items are delivered to your door for FREE. The best part is that you try all the items on in the comfort of your own home. You can pair the pieces you receive with items you already have in your closet, along with your own accessories! Keep the items you want, and simply send the others back in the pre-addressed envelope. By the way.....returns are FREE! You are only billed for the pieces that you keep. The $20 styling fee is applied to the items you keep! 

Now, lets get to this month's fix!


First up was this darling coral top! I LOVED the color! Unfortunately, it was a little too boxy for me and went back.
The necklace was my next piece. I decided to keep it :) It was just too cute!!

I LOVED this dress! ThE cut was flattering and it was just my style. I was devastated to learn that it was too big. So, so, sad because this really is an "Amber" dress! Had to send it back :(


This tank was super cute! I have a short torso though so it was too long for my figure. It went back.


 This was my last piece in this month's fix. I didn't love this dress when I pulled it out of the box but knew I needed to go ahead and try it on. I didn't love it when I put it on either. NOT. FLATTERING. AT. ALL.

Overall, I liked most of the pieces in my fix this month but the cuts/fit were not good for me. I've heard that it takes a few rounds for them to really get your size so I'm going to continue getting a monthly fix.
Plus, I've added 2 darling necklaces to wardrobe!

Have a fabulous weekend!!

  4. Well I am going to have to go to Walmart today...I want those lime green comp books. Love the little frames for your table groups too. Cute stuff in your stitch fix too bad they didn't fit. I have seen many people are reading Crash Course sounds like I need to add that to my reading list ASAP.
