Five For Friday

Today I am joining up with Kacey from Doodle Bugs Teaching for five for Friday! 

It is loud, and I mean L-O-U-D in my house these last few days. We are having our cabinets and counter tops replaced in half of our kitchen and I don’t think these men could make any more noise. Goodness!

(“Half your kitchen?” I’m sure you’re asking. Yes, half of our kitchen was finished in April, and the company we are using has finally made time to finish. Luckily this headache is almost over and then our whole kitchen will be pretty.)

I am just a *little* obsessed with my blog. It’s new and full of so much potential. I am so proud of it so far.

I’m loving this welcome poster I made. You can get it as a part of my Welcome Backto School Bundle. I think it would be cute to hand out to students on the first day of school, as a poster, or in a cute frame. (I plan on really talking about these traits/skills all year!)  

This banner is also included in the bundle. There are pencils for each grade level (1-6).

(Let’s take a moment to absorb that it’s my first week of summer and I have tangible things for the beginning of school! I really want to be organized and prepared this year!!)

Erin Condren! (Need I say more?)
Her 2015 life planner launched Thursday and I can shamelessly say that I was one of the nuts up at one am buying a planner.

When I bought my teacher planner I spent DAYS trying to decide what cover to get. If you’ve shopped EC then you’ve probably felt the same anxiety. The covers are so cute, and there are so many choices, “Do I get a picture, should I change the color…?”
The possibilities were endless-almost.
This year she’s added interchangeable covers! Y’all, I think I heard angels singing when I heard that announcement. You can order new covers for around $10 each! So, for those like me, planning a name change soon, or for those who like to update photos or just change it up, you can order different covers!
I know. It’s glorious.

Since I was doing middle of the night shopping already…I decided to add a journal to my order too! I want to keep all my school notes in one journal this year. And while I could have just picked up a spiral at back to school time, this is better!
If you haven’t purchased anything EC yet, click here to create an account and EC will email you a $10 off code!

My brain is so full of all things classroom, blog and TPT store that I’ve almost forgotten that I’m planning a wedding. We get married in October! It’s coming up SO soon. That’s both exciting (I cannot wait to be a wife!) and terrifying (see my wedding to-do list…YIKES)!
This is our chapel. We are getting married on Texas Tech’s campus. It’s where we met and where he proposed, so there’s nowhere else I’d rather say, “I do.” Wreck ‘Em Tech!

  2. Hi Jenny,

    I just wanted to let you know that you are a "no-reply blogger." What that means is when I went to reply to your email, I couldn't because the address isn't there. If you google it you'll find some tutorials to set it up so people can reply to you. Let me know if you need help!

  4. That's a great poster. I think it would be great to send home with the kids. It also might be nice to make something like that with the kids at the start of the new year. Thanks for sharing!
