What I'm Lovin' Linky Party

I shared pictures of my classroom right after school started.  I'd like to take you on a more personal tour of the things I can't live without.  Or just make me really happy.

1.  Paper Organizer
This is actually a dish rack from the Container Store that's supposed to hang from a shelf in you kitchen cabinets.  They're on sale right now, too.

Look how perfectly they fit!!  One side is my "get to" side.  The other is full of things that we have used and need to be put away.

2.  Trader Joe's Salads.
I love Trader Joe's salads big time.  They're fresh, health, and tasty.  Let me also state that I am NOT a salad person.  I'm not one of those, "I'm craving a salad" kind of girls.  But I really like these.  They manage to be low calorie, too.  Most salads that taste good end up having more calories than a Big Mac.  I love the Mexicali Chicken, Lemon Chicken Salad, and Lemon Chicken Argula.  I love you salads.

3.  My T.H.I.N.K. Poster
I love this.  Most of the problems caused in a classroom are caused by words.  We talk about this from Day 1.  All I have to do is say, "Did you think before you speak?" And a little head hangs down.  There's no justifying that can go along with this motto.  You can go straight to Technology Rocks. Seriously. and download this baby.

4.  My Buc-ee's Cup
I love Buc-ee's.  If you've never traveled the Texas Interstate system, you have missed out.  Their claim to fame is to have the cleanest restrooms in all of Texas.  They are serious about it, too.  Buc-ee's restrooms are an EXPERIENCE.  Plus, they have good food.

Anyway, I love Buc-ee's, the kids love my Buc-ee's cup, and having a giant water cup keeps me hydrated during they day.

5.  My Lesson Plans
Who doesn't love writing lesson plans?  Okay, not really.  BUT, I love my beautiful lesson plan pages that I made.  They're pretty.  I smile and sigh.  And before you know it, I'm getting some lesson plans done.

After I started this post, I thought I'd love to see some of the silly little things that are making your life better.  So (chewing on fingernails), I decided to start my first linky party.  I want to read about what you're lovin'.  Not your Smart Board or your classroom library (those are duhs), but all the little things that make your day a little easier or happier.  Maybe the rest of us could find some inspiration for a little extra happy in our day from your post!
