Do you happen to have the time?

In 3-8 business days I will! I've been wanting a new watch since my last watch was stolen err I mean lost (when you leave your watch laying in a public place and you go back and its gone I don't claim it was stolen I call it me losing it). I love Michael Kors' watches but I just couldn't being myself to pay a lot of money for a watch that might get lost again. However as I was doing my morning check of Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest I found a pin of a watch that I thought looked like me. Being curious I clicked the link to see how expensive the watch was and you know what I found? That it was on sale!!!!!!! Yes, Nordstrom is having their Anniversary sale and this particular watch was included in their sale. I was soo excited, so being the sweet wife I am I called my husband to make sure he didn't mind I purchase this watch. And being the AWESOME husband that he is, told me if that was what I wanted then I could have it...SCORE! So in a couple of days I will be wearing my new, lovely, ON SALE Michael Kors watch!! I promise not to lose this one, I will guard it with my life!!!

Are you an impulse buyer, or are you like me and mull over an item for awhile before you buy it?

Have a great day!

Tell Me More, Tell Me More!

I've had my blogg for a bout a year, but I'm not a serious blogger by any means. It's hard to come up with a clever blogg title. I see all this great bloggs and thnk, "Why didn't I think of that!?!?" Oh Well!
I found this on Step into 2nd Grade with Mrs. Lemons. Enjoy!

1. See this cutie right there? No not the one on the right :), the one on the left! That's my hubby Josh. We've been married a little over 3 years. We are both from the same hometown, had mutual friends, but didn't meet each other until we were in college. When we first met I thought he was shy and quiet, but I was wrong! He makes me laugh everyday, almost to tears! We have the best time anywhere we go; be it the grocery store or Barnes & Noble we can have fun.

2. I'm a HUGE BAMA fan! My husband's company has a box at Bryant-Denny so we get to the Tide play a few games a season from the box. I love being inside there when it's 100 degrees or 50 degrees out. Also the food is AMAZING!

3. Also did I mention my hasband's an avid Auburn fan?!?! He went to Auburn, but works for a company that have a box and are obbsessed with all thing Alabama.Yeah we have a house divided. He's a good sport and the only time we have to be separated is during the Iron Bowl. :)


4. Friends and family are so important to me, and I am lucky to say that my best friends are the ones I've had since childhood. Although we all don't live in the same town, we always have a good time when we get together.

5. I love to travel! If I could go somewhere every week, I would! Since I'm a teacher and get summers off I get the itch to go and experience something new!

No you aren't imagining things, I did change the name and layout of my blog! I just wanted something different! So look for some fun, different posts throughout the week, like "Teaching Tuesdays," and some others!

I have a busy week coming up. I am going to Memphis, TN for the first time! However, it's for business not pleasure. I'm going to the Lausanne Laptop Institute. It's a technology conference that I'm attending with 4 other teachers from my school. We're staying in the Peabody Hotel, and yes that's the hotel where the ducks stay. I hope to eat some Memphis BBQ, visit Beale St., catch the ducks swimming in the hotel, and get a tiny glimpse of Graceland. I'm only going to be there 2 days, but a girl can dream! Once I return it's back to the classroom to get it ready for my new kiddos. I can't believe that summer break is half way over! It's been a busy summer!

I look forward to sharing some of the things I did and saw while in Memphis. Until then!

Teaching Tuesdays

As many of you know I teach 2nd grade and I started thinking that I should have a post every Tuesday about things I'm doing to get ready for school, cool ideas I've found, funny stories during the year, and cool activities during the school year!

I have about a month before I start back to school, but I'm constantly on the look out for things to use/put in my classroom. Pinterest has been a really big help. I'm so thankful that there are so many teachers out there who have great ideas and are willing to share them! I'm also a thrift store freak. I go at least twice a month. I look for gently used books, nic-nacs, and things I can use to make crafts. You have be patient, but I usually find some good deals. So look forward to my "Teaching Tuesdays" posts coming up!

Happy Birthday America!

I hope everyone had a great 4th of July! I spent mine at the beach. We took our annual Fryer Family beach trip; which consist of Josh and myself along with Shadow and Bouncer. Josh doesn't get a lot of vacation time (that could be a post in itself), so it's nice spending a week together doing nothing. That's pretty much what we did; we ate, we sunbathed, we napped, we caught up on some reading, Nothing too exciting. I did notice one thing; when you go on vacation and it's just the two of you, you seem to take little, if any pictures. So here are the few pictures I took on our trip.
