First off, only 28 days left until the wedding! Eek!

Last Thursday was my school's Open House. Me being me, I used Farley's Tags for Appreciation Gifts to make these cute bottles of Coke to sit out on my kiddos' desks. (Thanks to Matthew running to the school with the bottles and ribbon 20 minutes before the Open House started!)

LOVE them!

The classroom was all spruced up (thanks to a 30 minute divide-and-conquer cleaning spree by my students!), and Walter was ready to go!

I spent a few hours Wednesday night (while Matt and his dad played game after game of chess, and then watched the Democratic convention-did I mention that I'm not a big fan of politics?) creating these awesome sign up sheets that I had sitting out on my back table (and which are also available in my TpT store).

This post is going to be pretty photo-centric (since we just rented "The Five Year Engagement" and I should probably be watching it instead!).

I attempted a pumpkin muffin recipe today, but found them to be a little bland (if you know a good recipe, let me know!)

I'm also working on uploading a file to TpT with some button inserts that I made to go with those awesome buttons from the Dollar Spot at Target (since I FINALLY found some!), but TpT seems to be having some issues right now. :(

So without further ado, here are some more pictures of my room, muffins, and new buttons!

Have a happy Monday!


  1. Laura,

    How do you use the buttons? Does each student have them? Also, what program do you use to create them?


  2. Best pumpkin recipe is the easiest one out there!

    1 box of spice cake mix...and a can of pumpkin! It will be very thick, but bake it like a normal cupcake.... SO YUMMY!
