Made It Monday + Odds & Ends in photos!

Hey there bloggy friends! 
I survived Tropical Storm Issac today...with 14 littles and 6 umbrellas.
You do the math.
It was fun interesting wet. 
Very, very wet.
And my portable yeah...
The kids had a blast splashing through indoor puddles.
Me, not so much.
The sound of squishy carpet kinda grosses me out.
I'm weird like that.

That was the worst part of the day...moving on to the best!

Cheers to getting home before Mr Hubs today! 
That was a first so far this month. 
Before I headed home, I snapped a few pictures of little here and there's that I've been marking off my "final touches" to-do list. Check 'em out!
I took one of these:
Gerber Graduates Strawberry & Apple Puffs, 1.48-Ounce Canisters (Pack of 6)
added ribbon and a few colorful pencils to make a birthday go-to!
 I got the cute birthday balloon toppers as a freebie- I just wish I could remember where I picked them up from! If they're yours, please let me know so I can give you credit for these cuties!

Last week you saw this picture in my classroom I get to show you the other side of this book shelf! I'm excited!!
Are you ready???


 This is what you see when you first walk into our room :) 
 We took these pictures on the 2nd day of school. I only had one little that was too shy to make a silly face. The others? They were beggin' for more than one shot! HA! Such hams. They make me laugh.

 I found this little guy on Pinterest- precious :)
Grabbed a frame from Dollar Tree and wa-lah!
 We've started Whole Brain Teaching last week.
I could kick myself for not implementing this last year! 
The kids LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it and I'm a small fan as well ;)
It feels like all is right with the world.

Last week, if you recall, I couldn't show you my desk.
That's because I couldn't find it.
I decided since I have kiddos now, I should lead by example.
Here it is- shiny and clean...for a minute. 

Last week, my kiddos arrived to find this sweet treat on their desks!
 You can grab your printable here for just $1!
{tags for grades K-5th available}
You could use Goldfish crackers for those "no candy" schools.

Lastly, I wanted to share with you a video that a sweet TpT customer emailed me. She's a librarian who used my nautical classroom theme packet to help decorate her school's library! 
She's so creative ya'll! 
I think it turned out so A.DOR.ABLE!!

Have a great week ya'll!
