Best First Day Ever!

This morning I am linking up with Doodle Bugs for her Five for Friday Linky!

Yesterday was my first day back to school with kids and it was an absolute blast! 
I loved (almost) every second of it!  It was also my 28th birthday! 

 These are the adorable packets that I made for our Meet The Teacher night, which was on Wednesday.  I had also made a little magnet with my contact info for parents to stick on their refrigerators and a little treat for my students! I got the cute tag for the startburst from Fourth and Ten!
 This was one of my greatest Pinterest finds of the summer- A fool proof way to organize student supplies when they come in with backpacks overloaded with paper and kleenex and all the other goodies!  I simply found some old boxes in our storage room and put signs on them.  The kiddos came in and I sent them directly over to the 'supply wall' and they dumped their supplies in the correct box.  Genius!!!!

 I am a Diet Pepsi freak! And an Oncue Freak! I love that it has a drive-thru and I don't have to get out of my car!  #lazy  But the coolest thing was that on my first day of school (and my bday) I got my drink for free! It's the little things in life!
 This is an absolutely adorable sign that my wonderful mother-in-law made me for my birthday! She is so crafty!  It is hanging on my bulletin board right next to my desk ! I love it!
 And lastly, I had to add the picture of the HOMEMADE sugar cookie cake with HOMEMADE icing that my mom made me for my birthday! It was soooo delicious! I'll have to get the recipe from her and share it with you guys!

Welp, that's my Five for Friday! I better leave for school now!


  1. Hi Jamie,

    Happy birthday!! Sounds like a great week! I love the idea to sort supplies. So smart. I was always so overwhelmed and spent hours after the first day trying to sort and store all the supplies. This makes it so much easier and the kids can actually do it. Genius!

    Have a great weekend,

  5. I love your darling starburst gifts for the students. I bet they were just thrilled to be in your class. Also-the magnet is genius! Thanks for sharing. I hope you had a wonderful birthday as well.
