Five for Friday [8/9] & a Birthday Sale

Linking up today with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday! YAY! And it's no ordinary Friday....
Sorry the picture isn't linked yet. As soon as the linky goes up I'll link up.

 It's my BIRTHDAY today! And in honor of that I'm throwing a sale in my Tpt store. Everything is 20% off until Monday. Stop by today & get it while it's hotttt!!!

 My shoes came for my cousins wedding. She wanted silver & I didn't have any silver dress shoes, so ordered these from Famous Footwear. They were the only ones that had a 10.5 with a kitten heal & were cute. Gotta love the after-effects of having a baby... making your feet bigger, by just a 1/2 size, but stores don't carry 10.5, so now I must become an online shoe shopper. 

I'm really loving these shoes!!!

 I found this scrapbook paper pack at Wal-Mart & I thought it would be just perfect to make the front covers for my teacher's toolbox.

Speaking of Teacher's Toolbox, I'm not quite sure which one I want. 
My OCD says that I should err on the side of caution & go with the largest one possible, but I'm not really sure ?!? 

Which one do you suggest?

22 Drawers

26 Drawers
39 Drawers

44 Drawers

 Well I guess I'll give you a little update on my trying to obtain a full time teaching position saga.
I had interview #5 for a permanent substitute position; however, I didn't get that. So right now I've had 5 interviews this season & 4 no's. I'm still waiting to hear back from my current district about the 3rd/4th grade Resource Room position. They have reposted the position since it's now considered a new position because they had to get the Business Office to approve adding another teacher. They stop accepting applications on Monday, but I don't have to resubmit anything & according to the Supervisor of Special Services I'm still being considered for the position. I feel in my heart of hearts that I'm meant to stay in my current district & that this is the position for me. Fingers crossed & prayers said that I hear some good news soon.

Have you joined my Back-to-School linky yet? Check it out here. Let's break the ice & get to know each other more.

So excited this linky is back. Much thanks to Kacie from Doodle Bugs for hosting it & I hope her month off was full of rest & relaxation.

I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend & if you went back to school this week that you find some rest this weekend & those going back next week, Good Luck!!!


  1. Happy Birthday! & as for the tool box, it depends what you plan to put in it. When I got it, I was kind of surprised how small the drawers were, even the "big" ones!

  2. I would make a list of all the bits and pieces you would want to store in your toolbox and count them up. Then add a few extra for things you've forgotten/new things and go with that size. :) That paper you are planning to use is just adorable.

  3. I have the 39 drawer one and that is a LOT of drawers! I've had mine for a year and there are plenty of empty small drawers. I had no trouble finding things to put in the large drawers, though.

  4. Happy birthday!!! Mine is tomorrow! I use the 22 drawer tool box but I'm thinking I may end up getting another one b/c I have too much stuff! :)

  5. Good luck with that job! I'll def. say a prayer for you! It would be so nice to stay in your current district!

  6. Good luck with the job! I got my first teaching job three days before school started, so don't give up! Love the shoes and scrapbook paper!
