Teacher Appreciation...

I know, it was yesterday, but because of my Journey to Parenthood series, I had to push this post off.  
I have been asked a lot recently if I sleep or rest.  Today, when the last 30 minutes of work rolled around, my co-worker turned to me and said, "so you go home and rest right?!?"
Cue the birds chirping...
Muh no...
Not even close!
I then rattled off my list of things I must accomplish before the boys get home, as well as what I have to do into the evening.  
Like grocery shop...

Anyway, I know a lot of what I put on my plate is self-inflicted so to speak.  But I truly love being busy and all of the little things really help add joy to my life...
Have I mentioned I love my shower curtain?  And my baskets? 

Teacher Appreciation Day caught me unprepared...
and I promise I tried really hard to recycle the Thanks a Latte idea...
But I just couldn't...

In comes Pinterest to the rescue...

cookies for Teacher Appreciation Day (I made my own though, sorry Chips Ahoy!) 

I really love adding an aspect of homemadeness because it really shows effort and thought.  Of course I would love to receive a gift card myself, but I just think these cute sayings are absolutely adorable.  

Unfortunately I can't find the pin that inspired my Teacher Appreciation craft, but I am so pleased with how it turned out.  It was a little more pricey than I would have liked, but I figured because they did a class gift for the holidays, I could justify spending a bit on this gift and an end of the year gift.  

Without further ado...


Two of my favorite things: post-it notes and fine tip Sharpies...
