Five for Friday: Getting Back to it Style!




It's been an exciting week here at the Stanford household (maternity leave has been treating me well) 
First off... It was this little princess' first Halloween! Hope y'all aren't sick of her pictures yet. I'm a little obsessed with this doll!
Secondly, TpT wrote about me on their blog! I felt like a queen! If you'd like to check out the post click {here}


With my spare time at home I've been getting back into things like creating, blogging, and even a little bit of crocheting! This baby is far too easy, which means: a. this is the calm before the storm or b. the second one will be a complete terror! To grab this Story Elements Flipbook click {here}

TpT's FB featured one of my items! Thats not the best part! Look at the likes and shares!?!?! AMAZING!! I love you guys! To check out the original post click {here}

And as I said, I'm back into creating! Not to mention sprucing up my store with some commercials hehe Love being techie! If you'd like to check our my short vowel unit click {here}

November Currently

Listening:
Gracelyn Mae is now 6 weeks old and (I don't want to jinx myself, but here goes nothing...) she's such an easy baby! Sleeps through the night, since day one I may add. I'm enjoying my time at home with her and don't want it to end!

Loving:
Can I just tell you that I didn't even remember we had an extra hour of sleep?! I mean I knew the time change was occurring tonight, but with everything being automatic and digital, it's easy to forget that it's actually happening!

Thinking:
I really love tot, blogging, and everything that goes with it. I really need to get back into it! I have a month before I go back to school and it would be great to set some stuff up, because everyone knows that with a baby things get a little tougher. I'm not sure how going back to work, having the baby, and tpt are going to go. Pray for me lol

Wanting:
Chipotle. No explanation needed. Too bad my husband doesn't read my blog... anyone want to throw him a hint for dinner?!

Needing:
Where in the world did fall weather go? We went from summer to winter in a week here in North Eastern Ohio! I'm a fall girl! (May have been a little ticked that the baby missed being a fall baby by a few days lol) What happened to jeans and sweatshirt weather?? I went from dresses to a scarf!!!

Reading:
Texts from some friends! Sometimes I feel like thats all I have time to read lately, but they crack me up more than any book could lol

Do You Love Mailbox Magazine?? {Five for Friday Style}

The Mailbox is by far my favorite teacher resource and it is absolutely endless. If you are anything like me you have used them for years! In my 8 years of teaching (and the stock up period prior to that) I have acquired years of magazines, yearbooks, centers, file folders, and so forth from them. I wouldn't give up those resources for ANYTHING!

So when my dear friends at The Mailbox contacted me about the #BeTheDifference campaign I jumped on the opportunity as quickly as possible! 

The Mailbox is asking us to be the difference in the world of education to make a change! They are interested in what YOU are doing in your classroom and with your kids to make a difference!

What are you doing this year to #BeTheDifference in your students' lives?
What activities are you planning?
The Mailbox would love to know! Make sure to stop by their {Facebook} page, click on the #BeTheDifference Sweepstakes tab, and enter to win a macbook air, a mini iPad, $500 Visa gift card, or a free year of Gold Membership over at The Mailbox before Sept 5!


On top of all of that the amazing people at The Mailbox are letting me give away FREE gold memberships to 10 followers!!! But act fast because this giveaway ends August 30th at Midnight EST. That gives you a little over 24 hours to enter this rafflecopter! Winners will be contacted by the amazing friends at The Mailbox about their winnings!!!

This was our last week without kiddos! They will arrive promptly at 7:45 on Tuesday and I can't wait to start a new year with my adorable kinders! (I'm just praying for cool temperatures because our building doesn't have air, eeeeeeek)




Before the school year started we figured we should finish the nursery. Okay, okay, maybe it was a tad bit of nesting and a ton bit of an amazing hubby, but it's ready for our little bundle :)



or should I say large bundle?! With gestational diabetes and now insulin I am heading to the doc twice a week to be hooked up to this bad boy. Great way to start off the school year right? Do you see those contractions!? October... October... October... 




The hubby and I went to our last country concert prior to being mommy and daddy. The baby loved it, but my ankles sure didn't!




and finally we got to see this gorgeous face in true dimension! We aren't finding out the sex, but after seeing this picture I will truly be shocked if it isn't a boy!! What do you think!?
