There used to be this Penny Candy Shop where my Grammie lived…. In the summertime she/my mom and dad would give us a dime and we would ride our bikes and fill up our little bags with 10 Swedish Fish. I’m sure it was her and my mom’s way of maybe getting us out of the house for a little bit. We love that shop. It was called Klem’s Penny Candy Shop in Avalon, New Jersey. I wish they still had stores like that that kids could go in and use a dime for a cheap thrill like 10 Swedish Fish.
Hey hey….hope you had a great long weekend! We are beach bound but I wanted to give you one more teacher appreciation gift….in case you are still looking for one:)
My friends at Folgers instant coffee challenged me to give you one more idea to use their instant yummy coffee and for some reason teachers popped into my head. I mean who needs an mid-afternoon break more than your favorite teacher?? Am I right? And guess what…this one is only 1 weight watchers point!!! Can I get an AMEN!!
Hey gals…and guys…:) Holy moly it is cold out…where the heck is SPRING?? We are probably going to skip right to summer. We had a low key weekend which was great:) This is my kiddos last week of school…they take exams next week…and become JUNIORS…WHAT!?!?! Seriously can NOT believe I will have 2 JUNIORS in high school. Maybe that is why everyone in our house has puppy fever…that’s right…we are in talks with Stella’s Aunty Trisha (aka Stella’s breeder) about her next litter. We may be crazy….it is a firm possibility. I will keep you posted:)
Wanted to share with you another fun teacher thank you gift that is easy enough to put together for all the favorite teachers in your life. Believe me….I did the hard work for you:)
So many super cute ideas out there to show your teachers some love at the end of the school year. My daughter helped me think of this sweet saying that you can wrap up and give to the favorite teachers in your life. All you are going to need is a magazine, travel size sunscreen and maybe a pack of gum….all the fixins for a great day by the pool this summer. You can right click on this free printable below…easy peasy!
I am positive that the teachers in your life would surely appreciate this little gift of thanks:)
Hey yall! Soooooo we SOLD the lakehouse! We went back and forth a couple of time with our buyers and the deal was good enough to settle. They are a cash buyer—a young family ready to make some fun updates to the house and make it their own. We hope to close this month so I will be going down there to gather the rest of our things. It is bitter sweet…but I would say more sweet than bitter. We are thrilled that another family will start to enjoy this house and the lake—while we start to concentrate a bit more on making the beach house fit our family better. All good things:)
Hey yall! How was the weekend? After no school last week (well, only one day of school actually)…I think everyone was ready to get back in the routine. It sure was fun to be a bit lazy for a few days though. If you are snowed in right now…or maybe just want to jump start the little ones Valentines for this year—I thought I would share a very easy one. I put a free printable on here too…all you have to do is right click on it to save it and print out as many as you need:)
