 AND 30+ other bloggers for 
 A few of my FAVORITE things linky...

Would you like to win up to
in Amazon vouchers to purchase some of
YOUR favorite things?

I think I heard you yell, "YES!"

Read some of my favorite things to
give you some of ideas of what you might like 
to purchase too!

I love these Uniball Signo 0.7 pens and cannot EVER find them
anywhere in stores anymore.
Drives me batty.
I just happened upon them the other day at Office Depot, but 
I had to buy some Sharpie push top pens to get them.
These pens can always be purchased online from Uniball.

I also love Ticonderoga pencils.
Can't live without them.
Just like the package says...the world's BEST pencils!
Even better...they are already sharpened.

I am quickly fallin' in love with these stools that one of my
teammates ordered for all the 5th grade teachers at my school.
Each class got a different color.
These are Norwood stools and can be found
The green looks perfect in my room and 
really makes everything pop!

I love this little paint can that a little girl from my school 
made for me at the end of the year.  
I have it sittin' on my desk to hold my pens and markers.

I hit the big Vera Bradley sale this summer on eBay
and got this new Lime's Up messenger bag. 
I'm lovin' that it fits my Macbook Air, iPad mini, chargers,
and teacher binder.
This is goin' to come in so handy to carry back and forth from school.

It's been 7 months since I broke up with Diet Coke.
I can't start my school days without caffeine.
Green tea is my new favorite go-to-drink.

What are some of your favorite things that you would
buy if you are a winner?

in this link-up to see what their favorite things are too!

  2. I gotta check out those pencils! I'm like you....LOVE uni-ball pens :) Wow, what an awesome giveaway!!!

    1. I just saw on someone else's blog that they had different colors of the pencils. I must hunt for them!!!

  3. I love those pencils too. My teammates thought I was crazy when I would go on and on about the awesomeness of them.. They thought it was just a weird math thing.LOL
    I love the messanger bag. I was eyeing them, but wasn't sure if would hold all my stuff.
    Have a great week!

  4. I bought those stools last year at Bed Bath and Beyond for super cheap! I'm not sure if they have them this year or not, but our whole grade level stocked up on them!

  5. Absolutely love those stools! Ticonderoga is the only way to go! Cute bag, you will be stylin' again this year! So proud that you have kicked that diet coke habit, that is a tough one and I agree, I couldn't start without some caffeine!

  6. I'm afraid I'll fall off those stools. I know kids have incredible balance, but that just looks like something for me to fall out of. I've still got to make my dollar store stop to stock up on school supplies (mainly candy for the kids).


  7. I just entered the amazing giveaway you are offering (I am your newest follower) I would be very appreciative if you hopped over to check out my giveaway! It ends in approximately 24 hours. Thanks so much =)

  12. i love the stools -- but when i went to the site - they come in sets of 5 assorted colors -- how did you get all green ones? i love them and it would be awesome at my guided reading/math teacher table to have stools (but same color) so kinder kids don't argue over which color to sit on :o)

    also love the vera bradley messenger bag -- i'm gonna check it out!!


    1. Hi Christy,
      Yes, the site has the stools that you can order in assorted colors. We ordered several sets and sorted them so each teacher got a different color. My class got all of the green ones. I wish I could be of more help.
