A Freebie & a Follower

This morning as usual a friend and I got up early to beat the heat and go for a walk.  We've been walking faithfully all summer because we both want to lose a few bunch of pounds.

So afterwards we ran some errands in spite of being in our grubby clothes and sweaty.  Hey, it's summer and it's Saturday, right?!

We both have dogs that need special prescription dog food so we stopped at the vet's and I forked out $80 for 35 lbs. of food.  Holy Guacamole, that's expensive!

Then we stopped and bought some wine for a co-worker's wedding next Friday.  (Taryn if you are reading this...I have erased your mind and you know nothing!)

Finally we stopped to look at rescue pets.  Why?  Well we both love animals and my mom is secretly looking for a new dog even though my dad says no.  He wants a new dog too . . . he just doesn't know it yet.  (Chandler Bing! . . .  you Friends followers will get that one!)

So anyway, while there admiring  a pair of loving Chihuahuas (that's a hard word to spell BTW) I'm chatting up one of the volunteers and mention my class pets.  And she's all "Do you have a blog?...The Honey something?"  Me "Yeah"  She "I follow your blog.  You're Erika right!"

Be still my heart!  I felt like a celeb!  If only I'd showered and dressed up!

Then I thought sheesh, don't I always joke about not showering during the summer?  HA

Anyway, she made my day!

Thanks second grade teacher at Broadwater!  (Which BTW is nearly right across the street from my school.)

Which made me think maybe there are some bloggers out there that would like to have a meet up in Billings. Anyone in the area interested?  Even people from WY, SD, or ND?

Now on to the freebie.

I'll be going into my classroom this coming week to begin setting up.  I don't know about you but there are things I change every year.

Sorry for the repetition as I'm sure I've blogged about this before.

But what other jobs do you get a fresh new start every year?

I love my signs and displays from last year but want a little more unity in color and design so I've been redoing a bunch of them to match my color/theme.

I had a request for a yellow, black and white theme that would go with the bee theme but not be over the top  bees.  I thought to myself "Great idea!"

So here are the WBT rules in this color/theme.  Click the picture to get them.

I've also added CAFE headers in the same colors to my TN Shop.  You can grab them for $1 by clicking on here.

I'm working on adding more items using this color scheme as well but have had trouble uploading things to TN.  Anyone else had this issue?

WBT Rules Freebie

I'm on vacation from blog design this week and thought I'd redo a few more things for my room. It won't be long and I'll be back in my room putting things together.

Today I decided to revamp the WBT teaching rules so that they fit in with my overall look a little better. Since I teach in a Christian school I've revamped rule 5 to include keeping God happy too. However, the original rule is there also.

Click here to download.

Classroom Rules - Black and White - 11x14"  A PERFECT TEACHER GIFT

I found this amazing poster on etsy and feel in LOVE with it immediately.  I think it would look fabulous in any classroom, don't you?  

You can find it by clicking on Erica's shop link below.  Don't you just love her name (not the shop name)?  I did have to inform her that it is spelled wrong though!

Erica also has a mommy blog you should check out at http://sweetleighmama.blogspot.com/.  I just read how another two year potty trained her two year old.  Funny!  If only I had thought of that when I was potty training my two girls.

So how do you win this adorable poster?

I know you thought I'd never tell right?

I Haven't Forgotten

Sorry folks...I haven't forgotten about the giveaway.


Cross my fingers, hope to die, poke a needle in my eye!

I've been busy designing, celebrating my 21st wedding anniversary, designing, sleeping, planning my parents 50th anniversary, sleeping . . .

You get the picture.

In the midst of all that I've been stalking etsy to find the perfect thing . . .

something that I myself would want (just in case I win it myself - lol!)

So don't give up or throw in the towel just yet.  I promise it's coming.

How was the 4th of July celebration where you live?  We had a ban on all fireworks because of the fires roaring in nearly every direction around us.  It's been hot, dry and miserable here like many other places around the US.  It made the 4th pretty quiet.  I think I was asleep by midnight and the dogs were calm, cool, and collected.  No sedatives needed this year.  But still it was rather ho hum.

I still have gotten nothing on my school to-do list done.  I've stopped admiring all the "Made It Mondays" because it just depresses me and then I eat more chocolate.  It's a vicious cycle.

I've got piles of things to do just staring at me on a daily basis and the family is tired of climbing over them.  Even the dogs have started to give me dirty looks.

And I still haven't read a whole new book . . . (soft sobbing)

I am a loser.

But dog gone it, people like me!  (anyone remember Stuart Smalley?)

So stay tuned for the giveaway.  I promise I'll have it before reaching 500 followers . . . just kidding! :)
