WAY too attached.......I cry.........I cry just thinking about it........sad........tho thad!! (Reagan and Teeny)

 So on to my miscellaneousness (not a word.............is now;)!!!)

Miscellaneous #1

I am doing the happy dance.....I worked on some of my bloggy organization over the weekend and started thumbnail galleries!!!  When I saw this on the lovely and witty Kristen's blog, Ladybug's Teacher Files, I knew it was on the "TO DO" list for the summer.....well, I had a few minutes and decided to get started.  If you look at the tabs at the top of my blog, you can go to the different pages with direct links to each pic.  No more looking around and scanning the posts....:)  If you check it out, please let me know what ya think!

Miscellaneous #2 and 2 1/2...hehe
I am sooooo excited about the bloggy get together I'm hosting with Mor and Jen!!  It will be here before we know it!!  If you are in Florida during this time, please come see us!!  We can't wait to meet you!!!  We can hang and chat and chat and I'll learn a few names......and then I'll forget them (cuz my memory stinks!!) but I will try, I promise;)
If you're planning on coming please let Mor know at A Teacher's Treasure so we have a head count:)
speaking of my friend Mor, she has hit 1000 followers and is having a hugemongous (yep, made that a word just now too;)  ) giveaway!  You have got to go enter it......I want to enter it but can't cuz I am part of it......it's an awesome one!!  You can check it out HERE!!

Miscellaneous #3

My new classroom decor things came in the mail and I am too excited!  They will add a different little "pop" for me:D  Crazy I know, cuz my new students will have never seen my room before but hey, I figure I spend a LARGE majority of my time there so I should like it:))

In love with the new borders...especially the pennant one:)

These are fun frames, desk name tags, and library pockets.  I have big plans for those for next year:)
