Cupcakes and Polka Dots

Friday?  Friday??  Friday?!? Where are you?  Oh my goodness this has been a busy week.  Just.  So.  Many.  Meetings.  I was really dragging by this afternoon when I was at my eye dr appt.  The dr gave me new contacts but I didn't have any (safe) way to get my glasses home.  I asked the lady if she had a spare case.  She pulled out a beat up white one but decided that wasn't good enough for me.  I didn't really care, though, I  just needed it for the ride home.  Then she pulls out this beauty:

Pink AND polka dots!!!!  Totally turned my WHOLE week around.  I tried to convey that to her and I'm pretty sure she thought I was crazy.  But, dang, I was excited.

Next stop was Target.  And, hellloooo dollar spot!  I'm not allowed to go to that section when I'm with my husband, he pulls me the other way.  So when I'm by myself, well, I just go crazy.  (don't tell him that his plan backfires)  So much wonderful stuff!

 It's all going in my classroom, but mostly for me!  The cupcake-themed items are a running joke in my class.  I started to type the story, but then realized it was one of those had-to-be-there moments and you would not find it interesting.  Moving on.  

The polka dot pad and pencils are, of course, for me to use in my new no-desk spot.  I guess the 100 days bookmarks are for the kids - that's all they get from today's trip!

Speaking of my no-desk spot, I finished cleaning it out today.  I left a note asking for it to be removed tonight.  Hopefully it will be gone tomorrow and I can start organizing my new area!  I'm really glad I decided to get rid of it.  I realized I didn't use the drawers at all.  It was still full of stuff from the teacher that was there before me.

I also cleaned out another closet yesterday.  It's almost completely empty!  I honestly thought I would never see the day.  I'm keeping a running list of all the odd things I find in my room.  I'll share my list when I post pictures.


  1. My hubby does the same thing at Target! Men just don't understand :) Looks like you got some great items!

  2. Oooh cute case! I had a similar pink one (no polka dots) that I loved until I accidentally stepped on it (no glasses inside thank goodness). It's the small things in life!

  3. Cute case. I NEED to get over to Target. Congrats on another finished closet.
