SUNDAY FUNDAY LINKY!


What a different and fun linky party to get us all a little out of the realm of teaching in our blog posts. God knows how hard it is to get out of teachery mode in real life....so it's nice to take a break in the online life too! Deirdre from A Burst of First and Molly from Lucky to Be in First started a new weekly link up called Sunday Funday. It's just all about anything we've done during the week that makes us normal human beings... ;) 

The only reason I am out of bed and doing this so early is because I'm waiting on a kid to come for tutoring. Who loves prepping kids for state exams!?! ;)

So...just like Deirdre, I had the whole week off too. In some parts of the Northeast, there is this magical thing called midwinter break. And then we also get spring break! It cannot come fast enough. I didn't do any of the productive things I wanted to do around the house..as usual. The bags of clothes to sort through and donate have been sitting in the hallway since December break. But I did do a handful of or relatively productive not teaching related things. 



I was doing a blog hop this weekend and came across Life Over C's post about a sticky wall. Well I had to go get that contact paper right away. And this is an amazing thing to keep a toddler busy! Tape it on the wall sticky side out and you get a faux magnetic wall. I shouldn't have used felt because that's all I had but I am going to get foam from the store..and that should  not leave any residue behind. 
Does this count as fun yet?


Ok next I did some online shopping and ordered a stainless steel K Cup for the Keurig. My Keurig and I are pretty much best friends. So when I read all these posts this week about how dangerous the heat and the plastic of the cup can be for future health, I felt like I shouldn't do that anymore. Thank god for this reusable one because actually I'm not sure I would have stopped if I didn't have an alternative. Anyway, let's see how it goes when it comes in this week! Gotta love Amazon Prime. Yay to online fun.



I went to a sushi restaurant because we had a Groupon. I don't even think that I processed the taste of the food because I was so busy trying to keep my toddler busy and non destructive. During the dinner, I gave her a fork to eat rice..not realizing that IT HAD LEFTOVER WASABI RESIDUE ON IT! My poooor baby...I mean...it was funny afterwards I guess. She didn't laugh. 

Ok this counts as the most fun for me this weekend. Yesterday I went to the mall and saw...



That's Christopher from Project Runway and Project Runway All Stars. He was my favorite. And I don't know what happens to me if I see someone even pseudo famous. I get a weird feeling like that is the most amazing thing in the world and I can't stop talking about it for the rest of the day. Before my brain could actually convince me that it was really him, he and his posse had walked away. But a second later I would have totally run up to him. This 32 year old would have!! But then I realized I'm 32...so I stopped myself. I didn't want him to see my giddiness..haha. 

Alright, after reading this post, I need to tell myself to actually have real fun sometimes! :) :)
Remember to link up with Deirdre and Molly!!

  1. I love the sound of a mid winter break! No such luck in Florida. We can't even wish for a snow day!

    Boy do I know what you mean about eating out with a toddler! I hate to wish away time, but I am looking forward to being able to eat a meal in peace some day!

    1. I had my baby after having two kids 12 and 13 years ago. Boy is it different. I think she gets away with a lot more than my older two did. It really is an adjustment after having all this time to yourself! But she keeps me so entertained.
