What I'm Lovin' Wednesday!

I'm Linking up with Covered in Glitter and Glue for What' I'm Lovin' Linky.
Here are just a few things I've been up to and what I'm lovin' for school and home..

Product Details
Teach Like A Pirate by Dave Burgess. I just downloaded this on my kindle 2 days ago.  It's hard to read when my kids are awake, because I get distracted. So last night I really got into it after they went to bed.  If you need a little lighter fluid to get you excited about teaching, I highly recommend this book. I love what I do, I've been teaching for 15 years. But, I'm always looking for new things to try.  He is a teacher! He writes from experience and that's what I love about it so far! I'm so glad this book has brilliant ideas to offer so far. I'm only through the first parts of the book--but he's hooked me already!!


I have these on my wishlist over at Amazon. I bought a small pack last year and love them!!! Now I can't find them anywhere--especially this 8 pack of great colors!!

 I'm Lovin' my New sectional!!! Especially the yummy pillows.  On July 14th I will be married 12 years!!! My old couch had seen 12 years of rough livin' 2 apartments in New York, 1 long ride down to Florida, A 8 month stay in a storage unit, 2 kids and a dog!!! It was time to retire her.  We picked  a couch that will not have a problem lasting at least another 12 years +!!!!

Then there is this new sharpener I had the privilege of testing out!!! It's super awesome!! To read my review on it click HERE.

I've been pretty busy with some Custom Classroom Orders too!! Who thought Instagram could open up such great opportunities!!
Here is hopefully the first of many Custom Classroom designs!!!

Here is the last of my Loves ---I am so thankful, to be able to have this time with my kiddos. They are the loves of my life!!


  1. love the couch :) I have the pencil sharpener and it is really good--- but I had the problem of underneath the sharpener got alllll messy with pencil counter was horrible! I didn't secure it with the little thingy in case I wanted to move it... but it makes a big mess-- and I COULDNT use colored pencils in it :(

    1. Dianne, I was a little disappointed about the whole colored pencil thing to0. They are just too soft for it.

  2. I have those pens in my wishlist on Amazon as well. I recently purchased the black and love them. I also have the pencil sharpener. I bought a 3 pack last year. It is the best pencil sharpener as far as sharpening. I agree with Dianne though, it does get quite messy underneath.

    Dare to Be Different - Teach!

    1. I know that it might get a little messy--but so does my electric sharpener, I guess its the nature of pencil shavings! LOL!

  3. I really want one of those sharpeners! I'm going to have to break down and get one!
