The Sunday Scoop!!

This Linky Party from Teaching Trio is too fun! 
There is so much this girl HAS to do this week- but let's be honest, I'm not even sure that the 3 things I chose will actually get done! 
Does anybody else procrastinate until the very last day to complete student report cards? Thankfully, they are all online for us- but it takes hours! (and of course, this post is more important!) 

Laundry- enough said.

Friendsgiving is coming up!! Do any of you gather your friends together for a big potluck meal before actual Thanksgiving?? We do! It's one my most favorite memories of the year, and my husband and I love to host! We may be the only couple out of our friends that doesn't currently have a large home to host friends, but our little apartment does the job- it just makes it more cozy, right? :) 
We make Friendsgiving as cheesy and elaborate as it can be. It's completed with Thanksgiving decor from Wally World, (tablecloths, turkey centerpieces, and nameplates for everyone) Everybody is required to contribute and bring a delicious dish to add to the mix. As we are eating, we all say what we are thankful for- and I usually end up in tears because I'm thankful for way too much in my life. 

I'm LOVING being a TPT Seller!! It has been so fun and everytime I get a notification that somebody has purchased one of MY products- I do a little happy dance. 
The problem is, it is NOT easy coming up with these super fantastic products. My QR Code Listening Center is without a doubt my Best Seller, and I'm realizing it's difficult to create more products like that for teachers to use year round. Gotta keep my wheels turnin'...

Y'all! I attended my first Blogger Meet up AS A BLOGGER!!
 (The 2014VegasMeetUp was actually my first meetup- but I just stood there in awe of all of the other amazing bloggers I secretly hoped to be one day!) 
Yesterday was so much fun to sit and chat with these sweet teachers. 
And this time, I was one of the THEM! 

 Ashley and Amanda from For His Glory did SUCH a fantastic job with all of the details!! 
The name tags, the mason jars (complete with a Texas decal sticker, and washi tape) were 
....and the door prizes!! Eek!! I was so fortunate to win these BEAUTIFUL handmade earrings from Stephanie (Mrs. D's Corner
Aren't they gorgeous??? 
 It was a fabulous day!! I'm so blessed to have connections with amazing educators around the nation through social media and the blogging network. But I now can say I have connections right outside my door here in Dallas. 
I loved meeting all of these sweet teachers- I just wish we had more time to chat! 
Till next time!!

Does any other district do TOY nominations super early in the year?? Not gonna lie... I wish we did our nominations at the end of the year, but I'm sure there are reasons why we submit in October. 
I love being able to recognize a fellow teacher that goes above and beyond for her (or his) students! There are so many worthy educators in my school and I really need to spend some time thinking about who is the most deserving this year! 
Nominations are due Friday... that's more important than report cards, right?! ;) 

Hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend and your start for the week is great. 
Can I get an Amen?? 

Now go link up for the Sunday Scoop with Teaching Trio! 


  1. Friendsgiving sounds like a great idea - enjoy! And good luck with those report cards (you are definitely not the only one to leave it to the last minute!)

  2. I wish I could have talked to you more yesterday! I've always wondered what it's like to loop. Next time for sure! And I do the same thing with report cards...but I am determined to NOT procrastinate this next nine weeks! Have a great week :)

    Terrific Teaching and Learning

  3. Friendsgiving is such a great idea! I might have to steal it from you! It was nice to meet and talk to you yesterday. The Meet-Up was definitely super fun!
