Hey bloggy friends!
How is everyone doing? I have been so busy trying to prep my classroom before we start our trainings and open house. I figure getting it done before hand will eliminate some back to school anxiety! I wanted to do a quick post on how I am getting ready for the new year. I am in love with TPT like most of us, but I ALWAYS never have enough color ink....it's so annoying. I see the cutest things on TPT and I'm like that is so much ink! I'd spend a whole cartridge printing that. We don't have color printers at school so I try to get it done at home. I saw a post about HP and their instant ink. Of course my printer wasn't compatible, but I have been wanting a wireless printer for so long. I made the purchase and it's some of the best money I have spent!
I bought the HP Envy 4500 it's amazing! So fast and amazing! It was on Amazon for $66, which wasn't too bad. Here's a photo:
I am so excited because I also signed up for the HP instant ink. I pay $9.99 a month for 300 pages, and my printer tells HP when to send me a new one. I literally am NEVER out of ink. I would always never have ink at the most convenient times, and now I am not running to Walmart at 10 p.m. on a school night. I am in no way a writer for HP, but I wanted to share how awesome this program is. I definitely recommend it!
I am so excited about my new product! I created Morning Journal Prompts for August that you can just project onto your board every morning! How great? Morning work is pre made for you! No more running around and making copies! It's on sale for only $1.50 and tomorrow is the back to school sale on TPT! Awesome deal! Please put this on your wish list!

Okay how cute is my little muffin?! Ugh I just love him so much, and I am getting in all the cuddles I can get! I am going to miss spending my days with him once I start school this week. :(
This past week I started to load up my SUV and get ready to take some things in. As you can see I just took "some things" in! Chris was excited as he finally gets his garage back. This year I am trying to purge as much as I can. I really want to rid myself of things that I don't need. My goal this year is to really let go of some of my stuff, and keep everything organized throughout the year. I am really planning on sticking to it this time!
Once I got to school this is what my new room looked like. I was so excited to get in there, and get to decorating. I told myself I was going simple this year. What a joke! I think I went even more crazy than last year! I really just love decorating my room, because we all know it quickly becomes our second home!
Here is a sneak peek of my room when I was in the process of decorating...so exciting! I will be doing a classroom reveal post soon! Once I put all my finishing touches!
On a completely different note I wanted to post something about a news story capturing the nation. This story about these boys lost at sea is completely heartbreaking, especially since it's so close to where we live. I pray for peace, hope, and strength for these families who must be going through so much. I can't imagine how these families are coping, and dealing with this tragedy. I can't help but to keep hoping for the best. Give your loved ones an extra hug tonight. xo
