I'm baaaack! and Made it Monday!

Hey there peeps! When I left I had 4 followers and over the weekend I now have 15! I gotta say it feels good to write these and know that I am writing to others. Plus we're all in the same boat and that makes it all the more fun. Should we consider the boat sinking more rapidly every day that the first day of school gets closer??

Have I mentioned that I am AB-SO-lutely dying to get into my room and get things done. Still waiting for the final okay that everything has been cleaned. Going in tomorrow to meet with my team though and that is always a great feeling. 

So over the weekend the hubs and I took Conner camping at the beach. It was beautiful. If you know the Oregon beach Coast  you know that we don't get the most predictable or beautiful weather. Hence the reason we call it the coast and NOT the beach. Well it was pretty darn relaxing but being back home today I still feel like I need a vacation from vacation. 

Building Sand Castles

Yes, that would be my child throwing a tantrum because he is on the beach with sand on his hands

Flying a kite with daddy

Candy makes him smile!

Terrible picture of me but hey, we're campin'

And now onto my favorite part of this post... 

Make it Monday and a FREEBIE!

Everyone and their mom has probably already made a teacher toolbox but I guess if you are late getting things done like me then this will be for you!

I did NOT want to do a ton of cutting, gluing, stickering and all that other junk to get this done. So... I created the labels using my computer. This freebie has two different versions because I just couldn't decide! If you have the same tool box you can just print these labels, laminate and place inside the drawers.  Here is how it turned out... easy peasy lemon squeezy! Click on any of the pictures to grab yours!


  1. Your coast looks so pretty! I've never been Oregon but I'm thinking maybe now I should look into it. :)

    Marvelous Multiagers!

  2. Cute ! I have been wanting to make one of those toolboxes, but have been putting it off. I love the label idea :) Oregon looks beautiful..I'm in GA so we're definitely a world away, but I'm thinking I need to plan a trip. So pretty. Anyway, I'm your newest follower - please stop by sometime.:)

  3. Kelly,

    So happy you are following. I have following your cutesy blog, as well. Let me know if you want me to change these labels to match your classroom decor or anything. I would be happy to help and it is super quick and easy. Thanks for your sweet comment!!

  4. Aaahhhh! Bruce's Candy Kitchen in Cannon Beach! Gimme some Seafoam candy! :)

  5. Where did you get the toolbox? I haven't seen one like that before.
