What's Up Wednesday

               Today I'm linking up with  Shay and  Sheaffer to talk a little bit about what's been going on around here! I missed out on this last week when I pressed pause on the blog to get caught up on some school things but wanted to share anyway ;)

The chicken tortilla soup from Costco with extra rotisserie chicken.  SO SO SO GOOD and crazy easy!

Teacher Tuesday: Sticker Love

You wouldn't necessarily think that stickers would be a big deal in middle school but let me tell you.... you'd be wrong ;). Stickers are, in fact, a big deal and I LOVE me some stickers so it works out well.

Today I thought I'd share some of my favorite and most economical sticker options in case you're a teacher looking for some solid options that won't break the bank. 

These smileys are an Amazon subscription for me because they're just so good.  They're large and great quality and perfect for so many occasions ;)

Reading Recap

Demon Copperhead is going down in my top five books of all time.  

"Demon Copperhead is set in the mountains of southern Appalachia. It's the story of a boy born to a teenaged single mother in a single-wide trailer, with no assets beyond his dead father's good looks and copper-colored hair, a caustic wit, and a fierce talent for survival."

It was beautiful, it was haunting, it was hard to read at times but I couldn't put it down.  It was riveting and heartbreaking and gave me a lot of insight and perspective into both poverty and addiction that I didn't have before.  It reminded me of "Educated" in that I kept having to remind myself of Demon's age when he was hitchhiking, working in a meth lab, etc. AND remind myself that this was essentially set in the same time period that I grew up in.  Overall I'd call this a MUST read and need some of y'all to read it so we can discuss!

Fall Dessert Roundup

Today I'm doing a roundup of some of my very FAVORITE Fall desserts.  The air is kind of starting to get chillier here in the mornings and evenings which has me in a major Fall-baking mood.  I haven't actually baked anything yet because it's still too dang hot but I know it's coming and so if you're in the same boat as me and DREAMING of all the baking make sure you bookmark these (or if you're somewhere that actually experiences Fall you can whip these up STAT!)

Spirit Overalls


When my friend Haylee asked me if I wanted to make spirit overalls for our girls it was an IMMEDIATE yes.  I knew exactly what she was talking about because I'm crazy about all things school spirit and have always thought that these were SO CUTE!
