It is my third week of summer! I'm enjoying this time off but per usually crazy teacherness I'm already thinking about the upcoming school year. EEK! I know I just finished up and some of you are still in school. I just can't help wanting to plan for next year. I've even done science lesson plans.
I have been thinking of changing up my decor in my room all summer long. The past two years I've had the same theme of green and blue with birds. I love the colors they are calming yet still bright enough for me. I want to stick with the same essential colors and possible add colors in. I was really thinking I wanted to do an ocean theme but I have done it once and it is super popular among teachers in Florida.
With all that in mind I have decided to do a frog theme! It's Schoolgirl Style collection called fabulous frogs so of course it is totally awesome, cute, and all together amazing! I love the navy, yellow, and turquoise as new colors to my scheme. All the blues and greens make it an easy transition from my last theme.
These are just a few things I've been printing, laminating, and cutting out already. I enjoy getting ready my room and decorating. I'm in the early stages of decorating but I'm excited for my new theme. I got a little frog and tablecloth to go with it all from the Target dollar spot.
Are you changing up your room this year? Theme, color, or just improving?
One of my favorite blogging times is the summer and beginning of the school year when I get to see everyone's classroom pictures. I'll be sharing pictures as I go back into my room and start changing things up.

Hey there! It is my first Monday Made It in a long time! Today I made a care package for a close friend. It is a fun summer box full of great goodies!
It is actually called a box of sunshine.I got the idea from Pinterest of course! This is a sample box and you can get the print out from Happy Money Saver.
I have a friend who lives far away and I know she is going through a hard time in her life so I wanted to send her a little love.
In the box I included:
-fun water bottle to keep cool
-Lemonheads & M & M's to enjoy candy
-orange nail polish to keep nice toes
-Burt's Bees lip balm & face scrub to relax
-mascara to look beautiful
-yellow notepad with suns to make lists
I got all the items I needed at Target and put it together with lots of yellow tissue paper.
Make some sunshine for a friend who could need a pick me up! Brighten someones day!
Well I'm off to the gym and Target since they are right next to each other! Enjoy this wonderful Monday and go check out other blogs in this link up.

I know I'm a bit late to this link up but I'm fashionable late because my summer just started and I did not have time before. So here is my current happenings in June.
Listening: I just bought the Arctic Monkey's new CD. Do you still call them CD's when you download them? I'm probably aging myself here..? Hmm anyways I've been listening to all their songs and I love them! I think they have a great sound to their music and a great lead singer. It's funny how I have time to catch up on things I enjoy when I'm not so wrapped up in the school year.
Loving: SUMMER BREAK! I just had my last week of school and I'm so pumped for summer. I am worry free, my house is clean, errands are done, and I've been to the pool. Life is great!
Thinking: I want to turn on Netflix and watch Orange is the New Black. The second season just came out yesterday and I've been wanted to watch it all day. I'm just waiting patiently for my hubby to get home so we can start binge watching.
Wanting: I have been wanting to decorate our master bedroom for some time. We have a discount and gift cards from Pottery Barn so I think now would be the perfect time to revamp our room. I want to do blues but haven't decided if I want cool blues or deep navy blues. I will wait and see what catches my eye. I also have been eyeing new summer dresses and keep finding reasons why I need them. I have a wedding I'm going to next weekend so naturally I need a new dress for the rehearsal dinner...right?!
Needing: I need to pick up my bridesmaid dress for the wedding I'm in next weekend. I just got it taken up and need to go pick it up from the tailor. I was supposed to do that today but all day at the pool seemed like a better option. Also I can pick it up on Monday because I don't have school!
Summer Bucket List: Travel travel travel! I want to travel as much as possible this summer and each month I will be going somewhere. This month I'm going to Savannah, Amelia Island, and Jupiter. In July I'm going to Washington D.C. and in August I'm going to the Poconos Mountains in Pennsylvania. We will be visiting family and friends on these trips as well as celebrating our one year anniversary. I also want to take day trips in between all that to the beach and other interesting places around the area.
Link up-it's not too late! Join in the fun!

My last day of school with the kids was on Wednesday. We did a "Frozen" party day and watched the movie, had popsicles, played fun games, and said our bittersweet goodbyes for the summer.
Yesterday I went into work to wrap up everything. I cleaned my room and made sure everything was off of the tile because that will be cleaned first. I also always try to put as many things on shelves as possible so they can better clean the floor.
Now I'm ready for summer!
