12 on the 12th Linky Party

Well, not much happened for me today.  It is the Thursday of my Spring Break and I spent it running errands, getting some work done in my classroom {which was a traumatic experience...see below...} and then resting with friends.   I linked up with Doodle Bugs Teaching to take 12 photos of my day on the 12th of the month!

{read photos left to right, top to bottom}

1.  This is Mr. Ryan Gosling that Fran gave all of us a the blogger meet up :)
2. I stopped to get coffee in the morning and these are the beautiful succulents that I am so jealous of {I can't keep plants alive...even succulents...}
3.  I found this tape dispenser at Staples.  I want it.
4.  This is a painted decoration I found in a general store.  :)
Then I went to work...
5.  My earth day project that I am testing out for the kids next week.  It doesn't look as good as the one on Pinterest.  I used cardboard for the branches and trunk instead.
6.  A little bird craft I made but didn't do with my students because it would have taken too much time :)
7.  My fish tank.  I am terrified of fish.  I have 3 in there.
8.  Me planning my insect unit, trying to get inspired.
9.  Then it happened.  I was working calmly and a bird flew in my room!  I panicked, got my bestie from her room and we decided the best option was me to use an umbrella for protection incase it darted at me.  I was safe, I am not sure if it flew out...I was screaming too much...
10.  My husband helping my parents remodel their kitchen.
11.  Me reading and journaling.
12.  Celebration and Bible study, having pink drinks because my girlfriend just found out she is having a GIRL!!!!

That's my day!  I hope that bird isn't still there when I go back to school on Monday....


  1. My friend had a bird fly in her room, too!!! Mass chaos, lots of screaming, freaking out -- I forget how they got it out!!! I would die - birds scare me!!!
    Love the pink drinks!

  2. So fun! I think the difference between the cherry blossom tree on Pinterest and yours is that person used more paint. Try that? It's still cute!! And I absolutely love that they are learning to use recycled materials for art!

  3. Congrats to your friend! The pink drinks look delish. :D
    My mom freaks out around birds. It cracks me up. I used to have a bird that would get loose every once in a while. Boy would my mom get mad! hahaha

  4. OMgosh! I would've freaked out over the bird, too!!! How in the world did it get in there?! For the nest craft - you can use a brown paper sack and roll it all the way down for a nest - doesn't take long at all!

  5. Michelle, I love your bird story!! And I am also horrible at keeping plants alive!!! I love having plants in my classroom, but I am constantly having to replace them! I just bought several succulents for my classroom last weekend so we will see how long I can keep those alive! I had some of the same ones last year, but without much luck. This time I asked for specific instructions on how often to water (they said once every 3 to 4 weeks). No wonder they didn't make it last time... I think I was watering at least once a week!

  6. Yikes!!!!!! That would scare me too!!!! You just never really about birds, right??? I LOVE that tape dispenser!!!! Super cute!

  7. I had a bird in my room one time.. and a room full of kids. We all left and joined another teacher's room until the bird moved on. I am not scared of birds but this bird was acting crazy because it was scared of us!

    I also had a huge lizard .. and that almost gave me a heart attack. Especially when I saw it first all I could see was the tail and I thought it was a snake.

  8. Ok, I am cracking up about the bird in your classroom!! haha!

  9. Some months ago, I applied for an auto loan from my bank but was not approved due to my low credit score. I needed a higher score before they could approve my loan. I became confused and depressed because I couldn't get what I wanted in life. I started doing some research on how to increase my credit score, before I remembered grandpa once told me a hacker helped him increase his credit score. I decided to go back to him and ask him the name of the hacker which he told me it's PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST. I didn't just give them a text immediately because I needed to be sure of who I'm gonna work with so I also searched about them on google which I got excellent reviews from their previous customers. i gave them a text via: pinnaclecreditspecialist@gmail.com also called on +1 (480) 420 8331. to be sincere i don't just know how to express my gladness over here. My credit score has increased, and my credit card which I've been looking for a way to remove for so long has finally been marked as paid on time. The hard inquiries and negative items on my credit report are no longer there. My greatest happiness now is that I now have a car. I mean I'm now a car owner. BIG THANKS TO PINNACLE. I'm very grateful for their services. I hope you guys can see the gladness in my heart.

  11. It’s imperative that I tell you this. You guys have to note that not all those out there who pose to be hackers are real. Creditors kept coming after me and putting all to my credit report; this really caught up with me and kept drowning my credit score. My score was 510 and all my cards were maxed out. I have been on a search on how to take off eviction from my public records and most people on different forums kept talking about a professional but they were all fakes until my Grandpa introduced me to what he referred to as “the best and reliable hackers PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST” I emailed them on PINNACLECREDITSPECIALIST@GMAIL.COM. They gave me some instructions which I followed, it’s been 4 working days since I subscribed to their services and my score has been increased to 809, all the negatives are gone. I’ve been crying tears of joy. You can as well reach +1 480-420-8331. 

  12. My late dad keeps saying “invest in yourself for a better future” I found reasons with this when I messed up my credit report. I now see reasons why I should invest in my credit. I quickly contacted PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST for an immediate repair and trust me he didn’t disappoint me. My score was boosted to 809 within 3 days and every negative items has been removed including liens and Chex system. You can contact PINNACLE via: PINNACLECREDITSPECIALIST@GMAIL.COM / PHONE: +1 (323) 406 1225.

  13. Hi all, first of all you have to note that not all of those out there who pose to be hackers are real and from my experience, this job doesn’t come so cheap. In the process of trying to get my credit repaired I fell into a fake person who helped worsen my problems, he took over $9,000 in bits. This happened until I met this credit repair company known as PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST, they have the best hacker out there. Helped me fix my credit with just a little payment I made and I’m a lot happier now because my score moved from 501 to 805 thanks to PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST. Here is the contact to reach out to them: PINNACLECREDITSPECIALIST@GMAIL.COM or +1 (323) 406 1225.
