I try to hold out as long as I can but the commercials get me every time

I am too excited about seeing the new Target commercials

I may or may not have a teacher watch party going on with a few of my friends

Its kind of a big deal

These two were my favorites from last year

I am in LOVE with Oriental Trading for sending me all of these fab goodies!!!! I think I get more excited than the kidletts when I get gifts!
( OT sent me the goodies but I am not being paid to write about them)

I did get some shopping in for me too

I have a teeny tiny problem with custom Converse

I have seriously designed and bought five different pair this summer along

Ugh...... I have problems

Expensive ones at that

Anyhoo, here is my latest pair

Aren't they purdy?!

    1. Congrats on your first year! That is so exciting this will be my 5th and I am still learning as a I go. My one thing that I can't live without has to be expo markers and cute containers. From OT I love their treasure box section

  10. I would buy stockings for Christmas. I always forget about OT for these and instead am in a panic searching everywhere for the best price. I used to be good at getting them after Christmas on sale, but they have become harder and harder to find, especially since I dislike the chaos more and more. That would be my first thought, but who knows what a journey through the latest catalog would bring:-)

I would definitely buy lanyards for field trips (we only use sticker name tags and they always fall of by the end of the day). I would also get the big dice for classroom centers. I would get some manipulatives for our math centers and probably some trinkets for prizes for good behavior or special days.

  66. If I won, I would stock up on Pom poms, I saw a cool classroom behavior tool using pom poms as warm fuzzies. They earn for good behavior but also lose for bad behavior. Sounds fun, easy and pretty inexpensive! This is what I would buy if I won!

  70. I already had my BTS list for Oriental Trading started. It included the name tags (you get so many for the price), foam dice (I agree with you - always useful), 100th Day items, and many many more. I just looked online for the star necklaces, because if I don't win, I'd still like to get them, but I couldn't find them. :-(

  87. Hi. I really love your idea on lanyards. Thanks for sharing! Lanyards are such brilliant stuff for kids, adults, and for anyone. They're an added feature that expresses character, uniqueness, flexibility and excellency for the one's wearing it that will get you noticed. There are many types of lanyards though, that you want to prefer. Check out more here :). But, no matter what type and how it looks, as long as you're comfortable with it and you wear it with much pride and style then, anything goes. Cheers! ;)
