So to get back in the blogging grove, I'm linking up with sweet Cara for Favorite Pins Friday!
My hubs and I built our first house last summer and we've been trying to make our house our home. Next up on my big project list is our loft but I've been held getting started because I couldn't figure out a color scheme. However, I think I've found it! I just love this color combination of gray, aqua, and watermelon.
Since we live in a new build, we also have new build paint. Which isn't the best. It seems like we are always touching up something because of the dogs, natural wear and tear, etc. We haven't painted with good paint yet because it hasn't been a year yet and the house still has some settling to do. So of course, I think this idea is from Alternative Gardening is genius!

Like many of you, my kiddos take RC/AR tests. Once a quarter we go to our Reading Counts store and cash in our points. However, I'd like to do something to visual display points in the classroom too. This idea from Head Over Heels for Teaching seems to be a manageable way for me to do so. Since I'll have two classes next year, I'm imagining have two displays, each a different color/pattern.
My grade level and I are implementing the Daily Five next year, and we've been trying to think of ways to organize our Word Work materials, and I thought this freebie from Sweet Kindergarten would be perfect! I read someone where that Sam's Club has those carts for $24! It's time to take Grandma shopping, as I'm a Costco girl myself.
I also love finding fun sayings/pictures on Pinterest too. I'm a huge fan of Parks and Rec and Ron Swanson. This cracks me up every time I look at it. The link doesn't work on Pinterest, but go ahead and laugh anyway if you love Ron Swanson as much as I do!
I also love a good motivation quote and this one from Bloom is perfect! :)
I love finding a good recipe on Pinterest too! I've read Iowa Girl Eats blog every day it seems for the past three years and I've tried so many of her recipes, especially the ones from her momma's recipe box. So when she posted her mom's fruit dip recipe, I knew it would perfect for the Thirty One Party I'm hosting later this month!
I'm off to hit publish and hang out with the hubs and my sweet pups! Happy Weekend!
