Keeping It Cool, Going Back to School

You want to know a secret about me? I could never be a rapper.  See that little title up there?  When I say that out loud, I try to say it with a sing songy, rapper rhythm and it just doesn't work. ;)

Okay, do you want to know something so incredibly exciting???  You're looking at a third grade math teacher!!! 

Chambray Sleeveless Top: Thrifted
Dress: mark., Jackie Giardina
Sandals, Belt & Bracelets: Target

For the first time ever, I'm going "back to school" this year in an entirely new way to me! I have so much to do in the next few weeks before school starts! I have to purchase supplies for my classroom, decorate the bulletin boards, arrange the desks, organize it . . . and that's only the beginning!


I also have to send out student welcome letters, and plan lessons and activities for the first few weeks of school.  Am I excited? Yep!  Am I nervous?  Yep! Am I overwhelmed?  Absolutely! lol

Speaking of going back to school, AT&T is currently hosting Back to School Sweepstakes and Deals! Each week from now to September 16th, AT&T is giving away a "must have" back-to-school device to five lucky winners! All you have to do is go here and enter your address to be entered to win. 

Nail Polish: Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Color from Influenster
Big Silver Ring: Target
Other two rings: Premier Design Jewelry

My class is going to be the Twinkling Stars.  The classroom will have a basic outerspace theme.  If you have any fantastic ideas or you've seen something specific on pinterest, that you think will make my room shine, let me know! =)

I'm linking up today with My Favorite Things.
