Sunday Smorgasbord!

I'm obsessed with Michelle's Sunday Smorgasbord!  Like I've said before, I feel like my posts are all over the place anyways, so this linky is right up my ally!
So where to start?!?!? I guess it doesn't really matter.... So I will start with our quick little get away vacay this week!!! We went to San Antonio with my mom, one of my brothers, and sister to go to Sea World!  Berklee was beyond excited, even though she didn't really know what she was about to experience!  Here are a few of my favorites from the trip!
 Shamu.... or "Schmoo" as B calls him, was one of her FAVES of Sea World!  She also loved the carousel at Elmo's Bay of Play, watching the dolphins and seals swim, oh & Elmo Rocks!
 Can you tell how thankful she was to be there!! :) So sweet!
 How cool is this?!?
 She was able to give Ernie & Elmo a high five!! However, I was holding her when she gave Elmo a high five so the picture isn't as great as this one!! :)
Of course we couldn't leave without a few souvenirs!  She had the bigger Schmoo from last year when we went, but she was obsessed with the Schmoo shoes & after seeing another kid with a baby Schmoo during the show, was NON-STOP asking for one!!!  I'm a sucker and couldn't say no! :)

On our way home I snapped this great picture!!! You can see the rain falling from the cloud far away!! How cool is this going to be to share with my kids when we study clouds!?!?! 

Prior to all of this fun these last few days, we spent A LOT of time inside thanks to 3 full days of rain!!! 
 I have managed to laminate, cut out, & organize ALMOST all of my back to school math centers!!! 
 I was so thankful that after dropping my sacred laminator once twice when bringing it from my classroom back home that it still works!!! I don't know what I would do without this thing!!!
B also did a lot of painting, this girl LOVES to paint!  Almost as much as she loves to dance, play music, and sing!!! :)

Oh & When I came home from vacay, I came home to this wonderful surprise..... 
 100 + likes on my Facebook Page... Which means a FB exclusive freebie coming soon.... &
I'm nearing 100 on my blog!!! Which means I better start preparing for a giveaway!!!! :) 

Last, but not least, I've donated my back to school math unit to a giveaway over at Curious Firsties for their 200 Follower Giveaway!!  Go check it out! :) 
I hope this wasn't too all over the place for you! :)  Happy Sunday!


  1. SA Sea World... that is in my neck of the woods... how fun!!! we have had quite a few days of rain which is good for my brown grass!!! Looks like you have had a lot of fun and your little girl is adorbs!!!

    1. Haha... we had quite a bit of rain ourselves... which is why the original days of our trip were postponed!! Thank you for the sweet comment!! :)

  2. How adorable is your little one?! The Shamoo :) shoes are precious and I couldn't have no either! Jealous that all your back to school math is laminated and cut out! Good job! 100 Likes on your Facebook1 Congrats!

  3. I need to laminate, but I keep getting sidetracked. I think 3 days of rain would probably get me motivated to work, work, work. Thanks for sharing.
    Rockin' and Lovin' Learnin'

    1. It wasn't first on my list of things to do... but I eventually ran out of things to do! ;)

  4. Sea World was my all-time favorite vacation! I want to go back!
