It's already been a busy one, but there is a lot to be said about turning the alarm clock OFF and just tackling the "to do" list as it comes to you!
Most of my time has been divided between laying out the pool and reading for grad school...Lots and LOTS of reading. I won't bore you with the details, but if you're itching to learn more about the Constitution & educational law, hit me up. I got ya covered :)
So, I've kinda neglected my dear ole' blog this week, but I really wanted to link up with The Applicious Teacher and her fun summer linky!
Summer is the BEST time to blog stalk & check out everyone's classrooms so this linky is pure genius! The first week (although I'm a little late) is all about Classroom Decor. Fun !
Here are pictures from my room at the beginning of this past school year...
My room view from the door. My poor pom-poms had to come down due to the Fire Marshall (arrghhh!), so that makes me sad.
And the rest of it just looks a little too busy for me. Time to change it up a bit, and make it JUST the way I want it!School Girl Style & all the tips to really focus on just a few colors, I've decided to clean it up & get it all down to my main colors...black & white with green and a dash of pink.
Polka dots make EVERY day a better day, so they're staying.. I love them :)
But, even with keeping with the polka dots, there are some things that are gonna go.
This rug is outta there, and now in a cute dorm room somewhere. Yay for upcycling!
Due to my love for dots, I scored this FAB black & white rug from Ikea... LOVE!
So with my rug as my inspiration, I'm sticking to MOSTLY black and white with some (just a few) green and pink touches. Oh, and, I've gone NUTS for chevron!
That's my new thing. Polka dots & chevron. eeek... I'm so excited!
Remember the table I told you about? I brought this home from my classroom & my dad has wonderfully and diligently sanded it down and now it's ready to paint.
What design you might ask? Black & White Chevron, of course!
I can't wait to show you the final product!
The rocker in the back is also getting repainted & the cushions covered with chevron fabric. Yay!
Seriously, folks, I may need an intervention for this new obsession of mine. Think I'm kidding? Check out my three most recent purchases made in just the last two days...
Love my new maxi dress. No this is not me.
This actually IS me. I love my new shoes. The fact that the chevrons don't match perfectly kinda bugs me, but I'm gonna roll with it. You know, 'cause I'm cool like that.
And, I had to snag this from Hobby Lobby. 50% off? Yes, please!
Won't this be so cute on my desk? Love.
Also, in honor of my new obsessions (seriously, folks....I'm thinking of starting a support group!), I made this new alphabet poster set for my room...
Allright, friends, back to some super duper exciting podcasts about School Law.... Oh yeah! As always, thanks for stopping by!
Don't forget to head over to the Applicious Teacher & link up! I love being nosey & seeing all your fabulous rooms! :)
