Dollar Tree

I was in the Dollar Tree today and found some BINGO markers. I am SO excited and wanted some last year but didn't want to spend too much money, can't beat $1.00.

Free Fonts

I have to share the best website to get FREE fonts. kevinandamanda.com has pages and pages of adorable fonts to download. I think I have just about downloaded everyone.

Calen's Birthday

In three in a half short weeks my sweet boy will be turning two. I still have no idea where the time has gone. I remember seeing that face for the first time like it was yesterday. He is at such a fun age right now and I am enjoying every minute of it.
For his big 2nd party we decided to do a construction theme because all Calen talks about is big trucks. I have complied tons for great idea I found, thanks to pinterest. Now I have the hard part of taking those ideas and making them really. I have started to order some adorable things and bought some printables from etsy. I plan on doing a test run of his shirt and cake this week ( I have three in a half weeks but for one week will be out of town). Here are some of the fun things I plan to do or have already purchased.

Father's Day

I hope everyone had a great Father's Day yesterday. We had a fun and relaxing day. I am excited about some presents that I purchased/made and wanted to share.
Purchased this for my husband off of etsy.

LOVE this...I ordered the print from etsy and purchased the frame at Hobby Lobby.

This is a bad picture but I forgot to take a picture before we gave it to my father-n-law. In the frame it has two pictures of my son where Gramp's shoes, a poem, and a note that says Happy Gramp's Day. SOURCE

Pinterest

 I know I have already mention that I'm addicted to Pinterest. I now have 2556 pins, crazy. Most of the pins are for work and I love finding new ideas. You can check on my pinterest page HERE.

I thought I would share a few good things I found on Pinterest this week.

New Things

I love getting new things for the classroom. I ordered some things from Oriental Trading for my son's second party next month and found these great things to use for jobs or centers.

Letter Shakers. I thought these would be great at writing center or for a job. The children can shake and write the letters that come up.

BUSY

The past week has been crazy busy at home. We got new office furniture that would not fit in my husband's old office so we had to switch the office and playroom. My home was a disaster because all of Calen's toys were everywhere in the house. The playroom is always done, everything is in there but I still have to go through his toys and paint. The office furniture is in the new office but we still have to organize everything. Needless to say there is always something to do to stay busy during summer break.

New Office...still some organization left but it looks SO much better.
New Playroom, I didn't take any pictures of the old playroom but Calen had way too much floor space.



Organization

So next year I HAVE to get more organized. I started a few things during in service and plan to do TONS more at the beginning of the year. I have a few things on pinterest and I wish I could be organizing right now!

Before and after picture...big change but it needs a little more help!
