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?


  1. Figures! The one day you say "no one will see me they do!" LOL! I saw you using Ben's trick!

    Think, Wonder, & Teach

  2. You ARE a celebrity!!!!!! :)

  3. I'm glad I made your day! I didn't even notice you hadn't showered :) I love your blog and if we can get a group together I think it would be fun!

    Stacee--2nd grade teacher at Broadwater :)

  4. I have to laugh about the dog food. I think I probably use the same z/d food!!!! Yikes that stuff is expensive. I am also VERY impressed that you have been walking this summer. That was my plan but...ummm...did I implement my plan....not so much!



Thanks for filling my bucket!
