Jodi, Fun in First Grade, is not only hosting a great giveaway, but she has also started a "Favorite Things" Linky Party.
Seriously, there are so many things I love...
1. Apple Products
I have no idea what I would do without my desktop, laptop, Apple TV, iPad, iPhone, & iPod. I don't think I could be without one of these devices for more than an hour!
What would I do?
From the moment I heard Jennifer Hudson's character talk about this website to Carrie in the Sex in the City movie, I had to check it out. It's the most fun EVER! I love renting beautiful bags. When the UPS guy arrives with his brown box of magic, I get all happy inside. I can't wait to tear into the box. Low and behold, my eyes fall upon the bag. Yes, the cinch bag that houses whatever little luxury I will be toting around for the next month. I've rented purses from Kate Spade, Michael Kors, L.A.M.B, Tory Burch, Juicy, and FENDI!
So, is it totally lame to love Target? I do! I could spend hours (and thousands of $) in this store. My husband cringes when he hears I'm at Target. I'm the mayor of my Target on Foursquare. You have to go there a lot to be the mayor!
It's the only exercise I enjoy. I have a bum knee, but I go anyway!
Scott and I are ravenous for tacos! We have them at least once a week! Nom, nom, nom!
There's Gus. He's my newest little baby. Scott and I have three cats, and I would get more if he'd let me. They are so smart and loving. The perfect snuggle bunny after a long day at school. Animal Planet has a new show called, Must Love Cats. It is so good! Kitties Galore :)
7. My Paper Cutter
It is the bomb! It works like a dream and holds up well. This paper cutter is a necessity for any first grade teacher!
8. J. Crew
I am such a preppy nerd and J. Crew is my Mecca!
If only I had more money....
8. Daddy Day Care
I love this movie. I watch it EVERY time it is on TV. It cracks me up! It was on last night, and I watched it again (like the 1,253 time.) It has everything I enjoy in a watchable movie- kids, humor, and hi-jinx!
This show cracks me up. I heart Bobby, "Bitches Be Loco!"
But, I am more like Ellie in real life (sad, but true.)
10. DeeDee from Studio Gabriel
If it weren't for DeeDee, I would be a grey-haired mess. Oh genetics, how you keep me grounded! I started going grey when I was 26. I discovered DeeDee and she keeps me looking forever 31 with her color genius. I was getting high lights and low lights at first. Then, at 28, I had to go full color. It's bad (Thanks MOM!) Every 6 weeks, I visit my best friend, DeeDee, and feel like a princess!
11. The Daily 5
The Daily 5 has changed my life. My reading instruction has totally transformed due to this philosophy. The first six weeks are always a challenge, but the payoff is the rest of the year. My reading block runs like clockwork. The kids may fall out of practice from time-to-time, but that never lasts for very long. So worth it!
12. Diet Mountain Dew
Diet Mountain Dew is my life force. I cannot function without it. PERIOD!
There you go. I'm sure I could think of at least 50 other things I couldn't live without, but I'll keep it to 12.
Now it's your turn!
Just post your favorite things on your blog and link up with Jodi at Fun in First Grade.
