200 followers and Monday Made It...FINALLY!

Alright, I made it to 200 followers! YAY! I'm excited... hmm...I haven't even thought about a giveaway, so be on the lookout for something in the upcoming days. 

I have been DYING to partake in Tara's
for awhile now. I have been making and working on things for my new classroom theme, but I'm not ready to reveal all that yet. :) 

BUT...I knew that I would be able to do Monday Made It when my friend Katie called me. 

Katie is one of my dear friends. I met her many years ago in college. We instantly got along and stuck together to keep college fun and full of laughter. After graduation we both got jobs in different districts, so I don't see her as much as I would like to. I fondly miss our Panera Bread lunch dates we would share before classes and seeing her every several days a week. Now we resort to meeting up on holiday breaks and summer vacation. A few weeks ago Katie called to say she was looking to do an ocean theme in her classroom and would I be willing to help? Would I be willing to help?? Are you kidding me?? YESSSSSS. I LOVE A GOOD THEME AND CLASSROOM MAKE-OVER. I love spreading theme love everywhere and BONUS....last year I did a nautical/ocean theme in my room and have a TON of stuff. This was a win/win situation...I'd get to spend some time with my buddy and she would take my decorations off my hands. Now I don't have to worry about where to store all those goodies. Thank you Katie for saving me from a Mark dispute...."TANYA, WHY IS ALL THIS OCEAN STUFF IN OUR OFFICE AND GARAGE??" You know men...

So last week we spent two days together and made head way in her room...

Here is what we "made" last week....

"Coral" made out of some fake flower arrangement you can see I'm very in touch with flowers and home decor as I don't know the official name for these orange and blue accents.

Her library.
We first organized and categorized her books which as many of you know takes a while! 

This hangs above her library.

I can't wait to see it completely done. :)

I'm baaaaaack....

Oh my goodness, I hope I remember how to post a's been a long time. Things have been crazy...let's got out (tears). I had a WONDERFUL group this past year and we were a tight family. Three days later I started summer school, which ends this Friday. Mark and I also moved to a bigger place. We are finally settled in and all is good. I'm writing this post on my brand new iPad. :) *giggles* My fabulous parents help fund my new friend as an end of the year gift. I'm in love. Like love. Please tell me there are others that feel the same way. Well I'm keeping this short and sweet. I have to get back into posting everyday. I truly miss it. Take care!
