Sunday Linky Time

Hello and Happy Easter Friends!

I am 2/4 on Latoya's Lets Get to Know Each Other Linky's. I really meant to post yesterday with that and my spring break bucket list. But had to get my house ready for 18 people coming over for dinner today. Soooo, here I am today with this weeks linky. Plus my plans for spring break.

This weeks theme is favorites. So, here are mine.
Favorite Place to Shop
Hands down it's TJ Maxx. I am a TOTAL Maxxinista. :) The closest one to me is about an hour away. I love their purse selection most of all. I will not spend more than 20- 25 bucks on a pair of shoes ,but I don't think twice about dropping 4-5 times that much on a purse. LOL!
Favorite TV Show
This is almost like asking me which of my students is my favorite.... I would say children, but I only have one of those. :)
Right now, my top is Scandal.
Did you miss the juicy promotion for Scandal that aired during the Oscars? Watch the video that set social networks on fire.
I love this show soooooo much. I love every twist and turn. I love that I can simultaneously love and hate the characters in each episode. Seriously, if you aren't watching, START! It's AMAZING!
Honorable Mention Goes to: Glee, Greys Anatomy, Dancing with The Stars, The Voice, and Community.
Favorite Sweet Treat
This is a two way tie between my Grandma's home made Lemon Meringue Pie and my mom's Dirt Pudding.  
I never used to like cake. I have since changed my ways. So growing up my mom would make me dirt pudding instead of a birthday cake. I am going to be *cough* 31 *cough, cough* on my next birthday and my mom still makes this for me. :)
Favorite Food
I have a lot of favorite foods too! I am going to go with the one that I always use when we do our favorite food writing in the fall, and that is pork chops and broccoli cheese rice. Again, something my mom would make for dinner on my birthday. We always got to pick what we wanted to have for dinner on that day. That was always my choice.
Favorite Restaurant
This is easy. OLIVE GARDEN! 
I love their delicious breadsticks and the salad with the Italian dressing. I love, love, love their fettuccine with seafood. Ok, I am seriously hungry now. :)
Geesh, that was tough trying to pick just one of each. Apparently, I've got a lot of favorites.
Now, on to Brigid's Linky for my spring break plans.
1: Work on my TPT creation list.
I LOOOOOOOOVE making lists. I love crossing things off my to-do list and then re- writing the list so it is fresh. ( It's a sickness) :) Lists help me focus. I am new to making things for TPT. I have long had a ton of ideas floating around in head. I finally made a list of all the things I wanted to make the other day and I am hoping to make a dent in that list this week.
Sidenote, since I'll be making some new stuff this week be sure to check out my facebook page and my blog this week for some flash freebies. :)
2: Re-do my Station Boards
A couple of Fridays ago I shared my new Math Stations board, which I love. My Literacy Work Stations boards are different. I will do a post on them, when I have them updated... which I need to do because we rearranged small groups with Title after our last progress monitoring. Plus, I like to switch it up and keep the peanuts on their toes. :)
3: Get caught up on the laundry, organize my home office, go through my closet, organize the hall closet  CLEAN MY HOUSE
4. ( My most important) Spend LOTS of time with my peanut. She doesn't always get the patient, creative, energetic side of me because of how draining this thing called being a teacher can be. When we are on break I try to spend the majority of her awake hours together.
5. Enjoy being up a little later and getting to sleep in a bit.
I am a TOTAL night owl. If I had my way I would be up until 11:30/12 every night. But then I would only get 6 hours of sleep and I would be a SUPER crab. The peanut sleeps in until almost 8 on the days when we don't have school so it is perfect for me. :)
All right, well if you are like me and you have this week off enjoy. And if not, enjoy your time with your peanuts. :)



  1. Olive Garden is my favorite restaurant too! So delicious :)
