First of all, I want to begin by welcoming my new followers! Welcome to Patterson’s Porch and I am glad you are here! Sit back. Relax. Share away! Thank you to all my first followers and for inviting all of these wonderful faces to check out my blog.
I took yet another trip to the Target $1 bins today! I bribed my husband in to coming with me. Target is located in two towns over. The trip is 30 minutes without traffic. He HATES when I get lost in the Target bins. He has a hard time understanding why I spend money for my classroom. He always asks, “Why don’t they give you a stipend for this stuff?” However, since I am hitting my 6th year, those questions have stopped being asked. Does your husband or someone else ask you those questions too? I always tell him that I do not HAVE to buy these things. I choose too. :)
The bins were very low and I only found a few things:
Another cute owl decoration!
These are magnetic boards that you can hang. Or in my case, let the students use them on their laps with some magnetic letters!
And these cool dry erase, ruled paper, boards! They are on both sides too! Kids will enjoy having these to write on in a center.
Not much but still something! Plus, I also bought the husband some candy! He did a good job helping. ;)
My new friend Ashley at The Resource Room is helping me prepare a linky! Be on the look out for it on Friday! However, Ashley has a great linky going on right now about guilty pleasures. Check it out.
My guilty pleasures are ranked by least to highest severity!
#4 My Kindle: I take it everywhere I go and even have the app on my phone. Growing up and being a military child we had to move a lot. Plus we had to take long trips to see family for holidays. So reading became my entertainment. Plus, my little sister annoyed me and when I read my parents told her to leave me alone. Haha! Little sisters are such pests! ;) I still enjoy to read. There are days that I will actually spend all day with my kindle in my hand from the time I wake up until I shut my eyes to go to sleep!
#3 Bluebell Ice Cream. The town that I live in now has a ice cream parlor and serves Bluebell. Once spring hit, a few teachers and I would meet there every Friday after school. I have an addiction to cookies n cream, banana pudding, and now have a new addiction. My friend Jennifer introduced this dangerous, amazing, delicious flavor to me:
#2 Blogging. I have only been blogging 3 weeks and I am already addicted! I have SO much to learn and I can’t wait to see where this takes me! I have already turned my dining room table into my office! Oops!
#1 Starbucks. Gold member card holder and they know me by name… uh oh! I think this is more of an addiction than a guilty pleasure. My husband said I need an intervention! Haha!
Those are just a few of my guilty pleasures.
Before I go, I want to share the owls I made to put on around my door of my classroom! You can click on it to get it for a $1 at my TPT store!
