Miscellany Monday

I enjoy reading Lindsey's Manic/Miscellany Monday posts, so I thought I'd try one myself. I'll figure out how to add a cute button later!

1. I can't explain how wonderful it was to return to a clean and tidy classroom after being out for a day and half last week. A wonderful friend and substitute had my workboard and calendar board all clean and ready, and the date was even changed. It really was a great way to start the day, especially a Monday. Thanks April!

2. It's one of my favorite times of the year...GIRL SCOUT cookie time! I was so pleased to see three boxes of thin mints waiting for me at school this morning. I had forgotten they were coming in, and it was a nice treat. Since I am trying to be a good girl and eat more healthy, I shared some with my students, and I sent one whole box with Brent to share with his coworkers.

3. For dinner tonight, I created my own version of Taco Soup with the ingredients I had in my pantry and freezer. A few years ago, this would have been a foreign idea to me, but I love how I am learning to coupon and stock up when items are on sale. Next step- purchase a chest freezer to store all those good deals!

4. My copy of ALL YOU magazine came in the mail this weekend, and since Chandler went to bed a little early, I had an extra half hour to myself to catch up on reading from this awesome magazine. If you like to save money, be organized, and enjoy tips from other women and moms on how to make your life simpler, this is the magazine for you!

  1. I've got to start buying that...I've bought it before and enjoyed it. I like that it seems real--I can actually DO some of those things!
