Stuart Weitzman 'Keepmoc' Loafer
I adore these puppies. I wore them soo much this late winter and (very cold) spring. They were a splurge at Nordstrom but nonetheless Stuart won my heart with these. So comfy! Lots of padding inside.
The amazing and original Judy Clock
Seen here, I'm never teaching time to 3rd graders without these things.. For EVERYONE. During my student teaching we (my host teacher and I) had the hardest time teaching time without these. The other clocks don't compare. I was so excited to find out these would be in my classroom this fall! CAN'T WAIT!
Always a classic my blue long champ bag is always by my side at school. It holds everything and is super durable. PLUS you can throw it in the wash machine! I used it as my school bag in college.. FOR FOUR YEARS PEOPLE.
Run, don't walk ladies- to your nearest Bath and Body! I'm not a B&BW gal but luckily my boyfriend's family spoils me and I get new for every occasion. This smells super yummy and I always had it at my desk last semester. Lucky for you they are on sell right NOW

Number line 1-100
My math teacher in college drilled one thing into all her students: no matter what grade you teach you must have a number line in your classroom. So what did I do the first day I got a job? Bought a beautiful number line that is going to go perfectly above my cursive alphabet in my room. I wouldn't dare teach without one. I think they are fabulous.
What good girl doesn't love fine jewelry? I won't lie- I'm obsessed. I have a few pieces in my collection but would love to see it grow. However my 30k first year teaching job won't be helping me with that. A poor teacher can dream though!!
I'm a third grader at heart and like my kids I LOVE pencils. And I will not be letting my students use mechanical pencils on my watch. (Another great thing I learned in student teaching) I had a great time this past semester buying pencils for my kids on any occasion. I would find them at the Target dollar section or at Wal-Mart. I even went back after the holiday past to buy more on clearance for next year.. You can't beat 50% off a 12 pack of pencils! Plus I put each student's initials on their pencil with marker in case they lost it. That was one of the best ideas I think I ever had.
MY FAVORITE BLOG!
This was the first teaching blog I read and I loved all her ideas. I used several of them in my classroom while I student taught and I am super excited to incorporate her ideas into my room this fall. Love her!
My puppy Rage.. I mean who can resist this face?
Lake of the Ozarks + boyfriend
I met my boyfriend at the Lake of the Ozarks last summer and we have been together every since. The lake is an amazing place to relax with family and friends and I go there several times throughout the summer. Plus they have a J-crew, Ann Taylor Loft, POLO, and BCBG. ALL OUTLETS. Everything is super cheap and it is basically where I buy everything for school. Oh yes and my boyfriend is a great guy. He resides in Illinois not to far from where I live. I plan on keeping him forever.
My other class
My student teaching experience was by far the most rewarding adventure I have ever had. Everyday was amazing and my kids were the sweetest little things money could buy. I loved each of them dearly and with the help of an amazing host teacher learned more than I could ever imagine. They helped me realize how much I really do love the classroom. I miss them so much already :(
Pink and Say by Patricia Polacco
We all know Patricia Polacco is simply amazing and this story reassures that belief. One of my new favorites. Such a tear jerker. I still need to buy this for my room. I buy all my books used so Amazon will be a great place to purchase it!
So thats all. Please share with me what your favorite things in your classroom or life are! Being a first year teacher I need to know all the great things that I have to have for my classroom. What can't I live without? Tell me people.
