This Is My Obsession

So I have decided to link up with Bonnie from Living a Wonderful Life for her This is My Obsession linky party. I have so many obsessions right now, it's crazy! Here a few of mine at the top:

Obsession #1. Cubs Baseball- When I am not teaching or blogging I am with my boys at the little league field watching them play baseball... and guess what team my oldest is on? Yep, you guessed it, the Chicago Cubs. I am not from Chicago, but my husband's family is and we have all been brain washed to root for no other team. So much fun!

Obsession #2. Pinterest- I can't get enough of it. Pinterest is the reason I entered the blogging world. I found so many amazing ideas from teachers, like you, and started being inspired to share my ideas too.  Every day I find a million new pins of things I want to make or create for my classroom.  I have to narrow it down. It is so AWESOME!

Obsession #3. Blogging- This is a completely new world to me and I get so excited every day to see if I have new followers (or if I am just writing to myself). I love hearing from others and getting feedback on my items I have in my stores.  I love designing, changing and figuring out how to make my blog the best it can be. It is just so exciting!

Obsession #4- Planning- I love planning for the next school year.  I love getting my room perfect for the kiddos before they walk in on the first day. I know it's weird, but I just really enjoy it. So, of course, I have already started planning and prepping and getting ready and I have 3 more weeks to go in this school year.

These are just a few of my favorite obsessions at the moment. What are some of yours? I would love to hear from you?


  1. I'm right there with you on blogging & Pinterest! Love it! I have to agree with you that I really do enjoy planning for a new class too. It's very exciting!
