2. Loving... I went to Ikea for the second time in my life on Wednesday. I couldn't stand it any more! I've seen so many cute items that others found there, that I just had to check it out for myself. I don't know why I don't go more often! The Ikea in West Chester, OH is only a little over an hour from my house! Here are a few of my finds...
3. Thinking... Even though going back to school means less free time, sleep, and sanity; I actually can wait to get started. I think this is going to be a great year! I'm at a new school with a new grade level and I love the teachers I'm teaming with this year! It's a good thing!!
4. Wanting... No matter how prepared I am for school, I always want just one more week of summer!! We've had a very busy few weeks watching my oldest daughter dance. Avery is on the high school dance team (they dance with the marching band). Friday was the big state band competition at the state fair. She did a wonderful job for her first year. Our high school band placed 3rd in the state. Here is a picture of her dancing at the competition.
5. Needing... I am one of those teachers that can't even think about planning until my classroom is finished. I'll give you a sneak peak of where I started (don't worry, it looks much better now)!
B2s must haves... I've been teaching so long that my back to school must haves are more for my own personal enjoyment!! Here are the three items I bought for my self this year!!
1st- Tieks shoes! I don't have these shoes yet but I'm hoping to get a pair soon.
2nd- Every morning when I get to school I make a chai tea latte. I just bought this insulated cup from Starbucks for my morning liquid heaven.
3rd- I take my lunch to school each day, so I look forward to getting a new lunchbox every school year. This year I bought this cutie from BYO. I also bought the earth friendly reusable snack and sandwich bags to go with it.
