Sew Stylish Boutique—Headband Review

Rose and Heather over at Sew Stylish Boutique are creating some pretty cool stuff!  They were looking for some bloggers to review their new headband idea!  (Which I might add…is such a GREAT idea!)

I was super excited when I received my little box!  Basically, they have used a thin wire as the headband part.  Unlike traditional headbands, this one does not pinch or poke the sides of your head!  Nope…Not once did I feel like I was wearing a headband!

Most of you know that I am a Kindergarten teacher.  This year I have 12 girls and 6 boys.  I had several of my girls comment that my headband was cute!  Not only did I get numerous comments from my kinder kids; there were several teachers and interns that raved about it!

I would definitely go check out their Etsy shop!  These headbands would make great Christmas gifts and stocking stuffers!

Here is a pic. of the cute headband they sent me!  I absolutely LOVE IT!

Here are a few of my favs from their Etsy shop!  Of course, I could have listed so MANY more!



Hope everyone can stop by and check them out!

The Beach or Snow?

Anyone that knows me well knows that I love winter, cold weather, and SNOW!  Living in Arkansas, we usually do not experience too much snow.  However, last year was a MAJOR exception!  We ended up with 12-14 inches of snow!  That is pretty major for us!  I LOVED IT! (However, I was not all that excited about going to school until the middle of June.)

All that to tell you this…

My 4 K-teacher friends and I were meeting after school the other day.  We have these awesome new promethean boards this year.  We were playing around with the board when one of them put a beach background.   I mentioned how SNOW would be much more enjoyable as a background.  Well, we agreed to disagree on that one!  (Me being the ONE that loves the snow WAY more than the other 4.)

I was playing around and found this pic.  I found it very fitting for my 4 friends!

So, this one is for my K-team!


So, if you had to choose…

Would it be..

Snow or The Beach???

I have not had a chance this school year to say how THANKFUL I am for my son’s first grade teacher!  She is a sweet, caring and overall just a WONDERFULLY PERFECT teacher for my son!  I have the privilege of taking my son with me to work everyday!  It is kind of fun to be able to smile at him and see him occasionally throughout the day!  There are days that he has even stopped in and said “Hello and given me a hug.”  I cherish every moment, because I know eventually he will be WAY TOO COOL for that!

All that to say…In first grade the teachers have Family Projects that they give out every once in a while.  For the month of November it is a Turkey.  The idea is to disguise the turkey so that the turkey will make it safely past Thanksgiving Day.  The turkeys can be dressed like ballerinas, football players, farmers…etc.

You can be as fun and creative as you want!  Glitter, paint, feathers, tissue paper…Oh MY!

Here is a picture of the turkey outline:


After creating the turkey they are to write about “How you are going to save yourself from being eaten for Thanksgiving Dinner.”

The page looked like this:


A picture of our turkey….


I would normally have drawn the cute little clothes, but we kind of waited until the last minute.  I googled cowboy clothes and found this:

I am a little bit partial…but I think it turned out GREAT! 

Fun times!
