Teachers ARE Heroes!

One of the best parts of having a store on TPT is the amazing staff. They truly LOVE teachers. When they create a sale titled "Teachers are Heroes," they mean it with all their hearts!

This is a great time to take full advantage of great prices on amazing resources, so take a look at your wish list, search those common core standards that you are in need of a fun and innovative way to teach, or check out some fun activities for upcoming holidays.

Everything in our store is 20% off and when you enter the promo code "HEROES" during checkout, you will receive an additional 10% off! Sale begins at midnight tonight! Happy Shopping!!!

Sunday Scoop!

We are joining up with Teaching Trio this week to give you the Sunday Scoop. Click on the link below to see what some awesome bloggers are up to this beautiful, sunny Sunday.

Here is a look into my Sunday (Mollie's is much more exciting, she and her hubby are enjoying the windy city with some relaxing and shopping):

I didn't realize it until I put it all in one place but I am crazy about organization right now!!! My school life and home life don't always match up. At school, organization is the only way I can survive. My house is a different story. I tend to hang on to things too long, just in CASE I need them. I realized over winter break, I am spending WAY too much time sifting through things to find what I need. It is time! If you are looking for a systematic way to organize your house, check out Toni and her AMAZING blog, A Bowl Full of Lemons. I am currently completing her 14 Week Organization Challenge.

Okay, off to organize! Wish me luck!!

February: Currently

This is our first time linking up with Farley for her "Currently" linky party. We had so much fun reading through what others are currently up to, we couldn't pass it up (even though we are a little late to the game - promise we will do better next month)!

Listening: Thank goodness both Mollie and I are obsessed with Adam Levine and Maroon 5. We HAVE to play music while we work and we are lucky enough to love the same music. Just one more thing that makes us two nuts from the same tree!

Loving: This four day weekend couldn't have come at a better time. The weather is nasty (good ole' Michigan winters) and we were all feeling a bit exhausted. So what does that mean for our break? Jammies all day, toys scattered around the house and lots of hot cocoa.

Thinking: Well, as I said, the weather is nasty. My girls are asking daily how much longer until the pool is open. I think we are all beginning to wonder if spring will ever make its way through all of this snow!!

Wanting: Oh Biggby... one of my favorite places on earth! Is it bad that when I get to the drive-thru to order my coffee a few of the workers automatically say "Good morning Amy! White Chocolate Mocha?" Thank goodness no one else is in the car to hear it!!!

Needing: Mollie and I are so excited to have had our proposal accepted to present at the Michigan Reading Association conference this spring. We promised to get started on planning as soon as we finished up our report cards. Looking forward to this Tuesday when we can sit down at Panera and iron out the details of the presentation!

Pageant Title: Yes... I will admit it... I am completely addicted to Instagram. I blame my peeps on the TPT forums. The only thing better than curling up with my phone to check out what everyone is up to on Instagram is curling up with my phone, Instagram AND a White Chocolate Mocha.

Happy Valentine's Day!!
