Summer Bucket List

Happy Sunday and Mother's Day to all you mamas out there! :) Hope you have a very special day!
My day is full of domestic bliss...laundry, cleaning, grocery shopping! We are recovering from a weekend in Nashville celebrating my sister's graduation from Vanderbilt. SO PROUD of her smart self! :)

I have been thinking about what to blog about...but quite honestly, all I can think about is SUMMER! So I was pumped to stumble upon Hadar, Teri, and April's Summer Bucket List linky party

Every summer, I make a to do list that focuses on one area of my house and one area of my classroom each week. I am a list kind of girl and I need this to stay motivated. 
Without this calendar, the days just might start to follow this pattern: cereal, Kardashians, peanut butter and jelly sandwich, Ellen, and my self sitting on the couch when Mr. B gets home...OR it might look like this: Starbucks, Target, lunch with a friend, Macy's, home in time for Ellen. While I am all about those days...they need to be far and few between if I want to get things done! {The first kind of day because I just plain don't get around to much, and the second kind of day because I will spend all my money shopping and won't have any left to purchase craft supplies!}

Here are some things on my School Summer Bucket List:
~ Organize my small group lessons and books so they are ready to roll! 

~ Organize my monthly binders...I am wondering if I want to change from 2 inch monthly binders to 1/2 inch unit binders??? Only teachers would ponder this point for days....

~ Organize my Word Work and Listen to Reading materials in more Cubeicals {LOVE these!}

I want to change my behavior management that has both positive and negative reinforcement! LOVE

Here are some things on my Home Summer Bucket List

~ I am starting a new blog! It will be all about cooking and a little about crafting. I need a place to put all of my recipes that I can access from my iPad when I am cooking and menu planning! 

~ I want to learn more about embroidery and photography! I got an embroidery machine and a Canon Rebel T3i for Christmas and 5 months later I am still just winging it! Ready to spend some serious time playing with both! :)

I want to make some of these frames! I have a LOOONG back hallway and need to fill up the space!

Great To-Do List! I switched to one inch binders and love them! And, I've been learning to use my embroidery maching since last August--let me know if you need any has been my lifesaver!
