Five for Friday ( September 25th) and Stabucks Giveaway Update!

I am so excited to say that things are finally calming down around here. Phew! 

Last week not only did I have four 13-hour days, but I also had progress reports due, my first open house, my first conference with a supervisor, and I was stranded at a training.

Don't mind me while I link up with Kacey for Five for Friday to tell you all about it. I also have an update on my $25 Starbucks Instagram Giveaway!

 I had my very first open house last week. Not many parents showed up ( I had about 17 families from my 108 students) so I actually got to know my co-workers better than the parents. Still productive I guess! All the way in the back by my desk, there is an itty bitty light. That is my candle warmer. My room smells like pumpkin and I LOVE it!

 I can't remember if I shared this, so I might as well post it again. I got my first paycheck and immediately went to Costco. I bought everything I could possibly want...and only spent $84. I know, I'm a champion. ;)


 I went to my very first teacher training where I was actually paid. Paid money! REAL MONEY! My sister and I both signed up and were excited that we could carpool. Unfortunately, my excitement was short lived when my sister's car died about 200 feet from the parking lot. At 7:45 am. (<-- True Story)

We had to find people to help us push the car into the parking lot so we could get to our training. Did I mention that the car wouldn't even roll in neutral and that we had to help push it into that trailer? Gooood times.

 One of my awesome team mates gave me these Batman pillows. I am even more excited for my classroom library. (If I ever get it together!)

Due to my crazy week, I wasn't able to keep up with my Starbucks giveaway. I am going to give it another shot, so head on over to my Instagram to learn more! Those of you who have already entered, don't worry! You still have your entries. :)

Even if you don't plan on entering the giveaway yourself, any shares would be SO appreciated! :) As always, thanks so much for stopping by!

  2. Do you smile every time you look at your pantry/kitchen full of yummy food? I'm probably odd, but I LOVE a big grocery stock-up trip. I love the batman pillows. :)
