Linking Up with Love

I am "Linking up with Love" over at Tales from Outside the Classroom (who has a beautiful blog by the way)!  

Here are some of the people I'm loving:

My husband Anthony...This is us on a boat on the island of Santorini, Greece while on our honeymoon this summer.  I'm thankful for his support and dealing with my craziness all the time.  Also that he makes my lunch everyday because otherwise I wouldn't eat!  

My cat Tink!  She's so sweet and follows me everywhere.  She is so in love with sleeping on this suitcase, we've had to leave it out for her since this summer.    

Okay, so I don't actually know these people...but I feel like I do sometimes!  Their blogs are what inspired me to start my own recently and head into the TpT world.  I can't be thankful enough to all you teacher bloggers out there for sharing your ideas and inspirations!

Here are some of the things I'm loving:

Warm weather!  I do miss the snow days from back home (Massachusetts), but the few days of cold I dealt with when visiting at Christmas were enough until next year.

Everything from Glitter Meets Glue Designs!  I need to make more money so I can afford to buy all of it without my husband complaining!

Teachers pay Teachers...I am so glad that I took the leap a few weeks ago and started adding products.  It has been really inspiring to my teaching.  I am excited to see where the year brings me.

Fonts!  Need I say more?

Again, I wish I made more money so that I could purchase everything I want from these retailers. :)  Maybe some day...
I LOVE MY iPAD!  I don't know what I ever did without it.  I especially love iCalendar because it syncs all my meetings and important dates for school, work, and home all in one place.  I don't think I would remember everything I have to do without it.

And last but not least, a new Valentine's Day product:

This product contains heart puzzles for over 90 contractions separated into the following sets:

-contractions with not
-contractions with have & has
-contractions with am, is, & are
-contractions with had
-contractions with will
-contractions with would & did

Use as many or as few sets as you choose. Each set was created with a different design for organizational purposes and is included in both color and black and white. Students should match each pair of words to the contraction they form. A recording and answer sheet is included. Visit my TpT store to download the product!  

Thanks for reading.  I hope you have a great weekend!

  7. I love Kevin and Amanda fonts too. They are just so cute. I use them for almost everything =)

  8. I love that glitter art. And I SOOOO--- miss the warm weather! Lucy you!!! I am so jealous. Try going from Mississippi to Canada. Yes, from no snow (possibly once a year but never sticks) to straight snow EVERY WHERE! I can't escape it. What was I thinking?! And those are some pretty great blogs too.

    Lovely Literacy & More

  9. I'm addicted to the glittery clipart. I have problems. But it's ok, because most teachers do, right?

    I have not tried iCalendar. I wonder if I should. Stuff like that kinda scares me sometimes...I don't know why...anyway, I probably shouldn't have admitted that!
