What I'm Loving Wednesday

Wednesday, June 18, 2014

I'm so excited that I'm starting my position as an officer of the Alpha Delta Pi Alumnae Association of St. Louis. In college I was involved in EVERYTHING and I loved it. Since graduating I've been bogged down with being a first year teach and obsessing over everything education. I think it's going to be a nice change of pace to get involved in something (other than school).


I have gotten so many free books and I am SO excited about it. You probably have Facebook, and if you don't I'm impressed that you follow blogs (so good for you!). Anyway, you probably have a Facebook account and you probably live in or close to a largely populated area. I have recently heard of these buy & sell groups on Facebook where you post what you're looking for or the junk you want to get rid of (the idea of Craigslist without so many sketchy people).

So here's what I posted...

And the response I got was overwhelming!

*Disclaimer: I did drive all around town picking up these books, but they were all FREE!

Andddd...finally! I am so excited for my new FriXion ERASABLE pens to come in the mail. I absolutely cannot stand writing in pencil, but I hate scratching out stuff all the time when I write in pen and white out is too obnoxious to carry around 24/7. So, while I was sitting in a workshop last week I saw the girl next to me was writing...and then erasing...and the pens were flowing on the page like butter! Really though, teachers + a good pen = harmony.

You can read more about them HERE and yes, they're really expensive for pens (I know!) but I ordered mine on Amazon for $11.00 and they'll be here tomorrow! I.CANNOT.WAIT!

Welp, that's what I'm lovin' lately! I hope you enjoyed reading my ridiculously excited writing/rambling.

Happy Wednesday!


  1. Such a great idea to get books for the classroom! I'm going to have to try that!!
    Happy Summer!

    1. Definitely give it a try! I figured you had nothing to lose :) Just picked up another box of books last night!

  2. I need to look into these pens! If nothing else I will have my students use them when my pencil sharpener refuses to work!

  3. Hmm I didn't know they had the clickable Frixion pens! I will have to check that out. Thanks! I love the book idea and I love that people were so nicely willing to donate!

  5. THOSE ARE MY FAVORITE PENS!!! I used them all year in my plan book. I also have the erasable markers and loved those too for my plan book and for the ELMO/overhead… I was sick of crossing out in pen and pen shows better than pencil.
    Enjoy your summer!
