SLANT Box Amazingness!

Last week was crazy.  For real insane back to school prep craziness. I know you all get that and you know what I am talking about.  Teacher workweek is exhausting.  There is never enough time in your room and there are always too many meetings.  By Thursday I was a walking zombie.  By Friday I don't think I could even remember my own name.

I get home Friday night, around 8:30pm, and see my SLANT box sitting on my doorstep.  Oh my gosh, the timing couldn't have been better.  Suddenly I wasn't so tired.  Thank you so much, Lindsey. I HAD to open it right away!

Loved the sweet note inside from Lindsey.  Her school's stationary is so cute too.  My box of Burlington was full of so many goodies.

Burlington is known for Sterzing's potato chips.  Can't wait to try these!

Lindsey sent me Sharpies (my fav) and erasers for my kiddos.

 Lindsey also sent me a t-shirt from her local high school.  Absolutely love the colors!

Love the glitter and purple polka-dot notebook.

Lindsey also sent me a cute Hawkeyes notepad and enough Hawkeyes pencils for all my students.

Go check out Lindsey's blog at Thriving In 3rd.  She has a lot of really great ideas and posts.  She also designs blogs and I can't wait for my blog re-design later this month.  You can find out more about her blog designs at L.Paull Designs for All.

If you haven't done SLANT box yet, September signs up are still open for another few days.  Go check it out at Jameson's Lesssons with Coffee.

School starts tomorrow...guess I should get back to my to do list!  Thanks to Lindsey for my SLANT box and thank you Jameson for organizing!


Linking up with the amazing Farley over at Oh' Boy 4th Grade for September's currently.

LISTENING: I am enjoying watching re-watching Season 1 of Once Upon a Time.  I forgot so much of the early stories.  Thank you Netflix for giving me something to listen to while working on school stuff.

LOVING: I am so happy I scheduled a 90-minute massage for later today.  My back really needs this!

THINKING: So many lil things to get done...hope I don't forget anything for the first day of school tomorrow.

WANTING: To visit my niece and nephews.  My niece is 2 and my twin nephews are 3 months old (tomorrow). I so want to go snuggle with those baby boys and have tea parties with my niece.  The twins were in the NICU most of the summer and just came home in August, so I don't feel like I got enough time with them.  They live 2 hours away, which isn't bad, except Washington DC is in the middle of the drive, so sometimes it takes 4 hours with traffic.

NEEDING: I really need to do laundry and put away the laundry I have done.  Maybe I should also pick out some back to school outfits for the week.

3 TRIPS: I have always wanted to visit Spain, Italy, and Australia.  I hope one day I will get there!
