After my shopping trip to Office Depot a few days ago I started thinking about my favorite things that keep me organized and happy when my life is just crazy. Some of my items I consider to be necessities and some are just pretty things that I love. I decided it would be fun to share my list and hope you will share some of your favorite things too!
My sweet husband, who is being goofy in this picture before we went to the movies a few weeks ago. He definitely keeps me sane when I'm ready to lose it!
My Erin Condren life planner which I debated about buying for SOO long and I'm so glad I finally did. I use it all the time, it really is amazing. I was just ogling the new designs that came out for 2012-2013 and they are even better than last years!
Sharpie Pens, I used to be all about the Flair pen but these have moved into 1st place. I told you I was nerdy about school supplies : )
My cute polka-dot travel cup that another teacher at my school gave me. Mine has my initial on it and it's awesome!
This 31 all-in-one utility tote is the bag I use to lug around all my junk. Mine is monogramed in aqua and the pockets are amazing.
I'm kinda obsessed with post-it notes. I stood in front of the post-its for about 20 minutes trying to decide which ones to buy the other day. I use them for everything!
I bought this iPhone case during my bachelorette trip to Wilmington a few months ago so not only is it super cute but it also brings back some great memories. And it's relatively cheap, as far as iPhone covers go ($25).
Just as much as I love my iPhone, I love my iPad too. I actually have a pink cover too! I used to spend hours in Barnes and Noble looking through books but now with my iPad I am 100% sold on e-books and I never thought I would switch over. This little thing can do so much and I love using it in my classroom too.
Last is my new LOVE sign from OldNewAgain on Etsy. I wanted to make a photo wall of our wedding pictures and needed something different to go on the wall and this sign was perfect. I added my finished wall below (excuse the grainy Instagram pic). It turned out perfect and I particularly LOVE our UP themed guestbook which you can see on the far left. My grandfather drew the picture of our house and everyone who attended our reception "signed" with their thumbprint so they look like balloons.
I'd love to hear about the favorite things in your life/classroom! : )
