Sunday Smorgasbord

Hello blogger buddies! Happy Sunday! Am I the only one that has a hard time keeping up with the days during the summer? Good thing we have linky parties to keep us with it, right? I am linking up with Michelle at Fabulous in First to share my random adventures for the week!


Last night I got home from an ELEVEN day get away with my boyfriend, Charlie! We took a 12 hour road trip to Lancaster, PA to visit with his family! We had a BLAST and enjoyed some much needed family time! Can I just say that PA is GORGEOUS? I can't wait to go back! I will choose just a few of my pics to share with you. I am that obnoxious person who has the need to take pictures at every given moment in life...So It was hard for me to share just a FEW pictures with you guys! :) Enjoy!

Snuggling with my sweet Bella on the way to PA!
Gorgeous Fireworks on the 4th!

Charlie's sweet momma cooked us some amazing meals while we were there! :)
Pretzel anyone?
Roots Market. Amazing

The Stoner House has been in Charlie's family since 1950.

The Amish countrysides were breathtaking.
Kissing Bridge ;-)
Trying out the Amish look.


I scored an amazing deal on Groupon this week! I got 76%....SEVENTY SIX....percent off of $70 dollars worth of Vistaprint products!! There's no telling how many goodies I can get for that kind of loot! Last year I made magnets and gave to the parents during meet the teacher night, but I am in search of more ideas! If you're reading this and use Vistaprint in your classroom, please share your ideas! I will post soon about what I ended up ordering!


Today I did some MAJOR classroom shopping! It was killing me to be out of town for 11 days and seeing all the goodies I was missing out on when seeing your  scores on Instagram! My sweet boy took me to TWO Targets, TWO Dollar Trees, Big Lots and Michael's. Did I mention this was the day AFTER we drove 12 hours from an 11 day vacation? He's a keeper for sure!Check out all my goodies! And by the way, I'd love to have you follow me on Istagram! Click here to find me!

Meet my sweet Bella. I may be biased, but she is the sweetest little kitty ever and has my heart!

Well, that's all for today! Sorry for the picture overload! Tomorrow I plan to begin working in my classroom a bit. This year I am doing a "Super Leaders" theme. Tune in for pics soon!

Thanks for reading! :)

    1. Hey friend! Thank you for following my blog...I think you're probably the first one lol! I am excited to keep in touch with you as well! I taught 3rd grade one year and am starting my third year in 1st.

      I hate hate HATE that I missed the meet up, but I guess technically I probably wasn't a blogger at that time! I will def come to the next one!

      Keep in touch!

    2. What's your Instagram name? I am having a hard time finding you. I posted earlier about the blogger exchange and wanted to tag you in it, but couldn't find you!

  2. Looks like you had a blast in PA! I have never been there but from your pics it looks like a neat place to check out. I love old houses like the one in the photo. So pretty! Glad you had a fun trip.

    Lovely Literacy and More

    1. Thank you, Brittany! We did have a wonderful time! It is definitely a great place to visit. The countrysides are gorgeous and they are everywhere!
