Giveaway Winners and Summer Ramblings.

I always forget how much I LOVE summer!

Monday and Tuesday were filled with paperwork, cum folders, accountability folders, test waivers, and professional development.  Always a joy.

Yesterday I finished packing up my room and cleaning.  I purged so much crap junk stuff.  It was ridiculous. I felt wasteful, but with starting Common Core next year, I knew I was NEVER going to use some of that stuff.  A lot of it was in the room when I moved in 3 years ago. Some things even had names of teachers that retired long ago.  haha.

So what have I been doing now that I am officially free??

Well, yesterday I highlighted my hair.  Yes, with the highlighting cap and all.  I didn't really feel like spending a big chunk of change at the salon.  So my dear friend Kayla and I decided to pretend we were in high school again and we did it ourselves. Mine turned out great!  I feel so summery now.  I would go and take a picture, but I'm still in my PJ's. (yes at's summer people.)

We can pretend this is what I look like with my new hair...

Well, Kayla's hair did not turn out so great.  We didn't take into account her previous hair dye.  Well, from her scalp to her ears looked banging.  Then it turned into a brassy/reddish mess. So today we are dying it back dark. haha.

I also just finished the last book in the Fifty Shades trilogy. So glad I jumped on the bandwagon.  Although, I'm now a little sad that it's over.  I always miss characters after I finish a series.  Dork Alert...

Do you guys think they are actually going to make a movie?  This is who I envision as Christian Grey...

OMG, isn't he dreamy??  Matt Bomer from White Collar. In real life he may not be interested in Anastasia Steele.  If you know what I mean, but one can still hope. 

Oh guess, what I've been reading on? 

My brand new Kindle!

Listen to this, well read this, one of my students gave me a $100 gift card to Target! Yes! $100! I was in shock!  

Well, I'm walking through Target thinking about what I wanted to spend this awesome gift on. I had been thinking about buying a Kindle, since books are so dang expensive.  I walked by the Electronics dept and they were on sale! So I was able to buy the Kindle and a case with my card.  

I am in love with it.  Why didn't I decide to get one sooner???  

I called my mom that day to tell her that I got one, she then informed me that she was planning on getting me one for my birthday this month.  haha. 

Oh, and I have giveaway winners!

Congrats to Denise! She wins $25 of store items! Chrissy and Jennifer each win $10!  

Thanks to everyone who entered! Thanks to everyone who purchased something during the sale! You guys rock!

Well I plan on spending some time by the pool today.  I'm also hoping to get started on some Pinterest Inspired Projects from my linky party too!

I'm terribly sorry about my lack of Teacher Posts lately.  I have felt awfully uninspired to create.  Is that ok since it's summer?  Do my other blogger friends feel the same way?  I hope I'm not alone.  I'm sure it will change soon after some rest and sun! 

Have a great Thursday!
