Birthday Fun and Bee Freebies!

Hey friends!
I had a wonderful birthday yesterday. My hubby had to work a half day, but I got some more bee stuff done for the classroom.
Then when he got home, we got ready and went to The Cheesecake Factory!! (one of my favorites!)

all ready for the big night!
the best desserts!
So, if you've been following my posts, you know I'm creating things for my bee themed classroom this year. I'm doing the clip chart and I'll have 2 levels above the green so for each level, they are at, at the end of the day, that's how many bee bucks they'll get. green=1, blue=2 and pink=3. Also, if they get pink (the tipy-top) they'll get this reward to take home and show mom and dad! I just posted these freebies in my TPT shop if you'd like to grab them as well!

I also created a bee themed calendar for my teacher binder. This is just $1.50 and plus the birthday sale is still going on, it's on sale until Sunday!

Bee classroom sign

Hi Friends!
So I started to organize my teaching stuff Tuesday and I got so overwhelmed I just had to stop! haha..I have only been teaching for 3 years so I really don't think I have that much stuff, but it's hard to put things together instead of just hanging them up or storing in the classroom. I'd rather go through it once I'm in the classroom! Do you ever get that way?

Anyway, in keeping with my new bee theme..I made this Where are we Bee sign..check it out FREE in my TPT shop! Thanks...have a great day!

Buzzin' Around

Hi Friends!
So I've been going crazy making things for my new theme this year. I'm going with bumble bees. Our school mascot is a yellow jacket and I graduated from college with the same mascot PLUS I thought it would be cute to say Mrs. Hudak's Honeybees! :D So here are some inspirations of what I have so far...(click on all pics for links)

Enjoy your day!!

Oh Sweet Cupcakes!

Hey friends!
I am back home and I have to say...I have the best husband ever..when I got in the house, I noticed how fresh smelling and clean everything looked. Even my pup was bathed and clean! The hubby had worked a little bit every night while I was gone to do a number on the house! :) I was so shocked and happy! 

So yesterday, we had a gloomy day all day and I thought it would be a good day to cook and bake. I made my mother-in-law's potato salad. (side note: she did not have an actual recipe, just what it used and I was nervous on the proportions, but it came out great!) and I also made some peach cupcakes! (click on the pic for a copy of the recipe!)

Today, I plan on tackling our spare bedroom and organizing my teacher stuff. I hope to be able to get into my new classroom in the coming weeks. School starts Aug. 25th and our open house is Aug. 20th. It's almost crunch time and I hope I can get everything set up before then. I'm going to try and have the hubby take a half day of work to come help me, but for the most part..it'll just be me doin' all the work. :/

Ok...I'm off. Have a great Tuesday! :)

Walmart Finds!

Hi friends! 
I am blogging at midnight at my parents house..yes, I've actually stayed up late a few nights this summer and I love that I got to hang out with my family this week. I have one more day and then I'll be driving back to NC. I'm ready to see the hubby again and get back into our routine (and enjoy the last few weeks of summer!)
I've read a lot about the great finds you are snatching up for back to school and I headed over to Walmart today because I know they never disappoint..here's what I got...
3 different Bingo games that will be great to play in small group..or centers
some more games focusing on literacy skills
and I could not pass up these colorful pens..so excited to write notes and lessons plans with these bad boys!
Tomorrow I have a jam-packed day with meeting a friend for breakfast at Panera (one of the best places ever!) and then 2 back to back grad parties, then finishing up the day with some quality time at the in-laws!

Have a great weekend friends! I'll be back with more next week! :)

Five for Friday

Hey Friends!
I'm linking up with Doodlebugs for her weekly linky party. (and I'm not doing it on a Saturday! haha)

fiveforfriday2_thumb3_thumb3
 I went in an got the last of my things from my "old" school this week, now I just have to go through everything and reorganize for the new classroom, because stuff is all over...as you can see! 
In addition to that, my friend who just had a baby and is not returning this year, gave me her rocker! I am so excited. I need to sand it and re-paint it. :)
We got our canopy in time for our family to come last weekend. It was so nice to sit under it at night with the lights and I love how it looks when all the curtains are tied back as well. If your wondering, we got it at Lowe's. :)

We also got a fire pit and made smores. :) I love our little set up we have goin' on now!
It's been crazy weather here in NC. It's either been too hot to enjoy being outside, or very dreary, like this week has been. My little fur babies have been using the time to catch up on their naps. :)


And now that you're at the end of this post..I wanted to share with you a little freebie a put up in my store yesterday. My new school does school wide PBIS expectations in the hallways and classrooms. I have my own set of rules I'd like to post and didn't want to make individual posters for PBIS, so I made this little sign to post near the front of the room. Feel free to grab! ;)

I'm off to clean and pack for my long trip to Cleveland tomorrow...so excited to see the family! :)
