A Day in the Life Link Up

One of my best blogging friends is Jessica at Second First Grade Nest.  Every month (or two), she does a fun, little link up called A Day in the Life.  So, tonight I am linking up with her.  Fortunately, I was smart enough to message her on Friday and say, "Hey!  Are you planning your link up because today would be a great picture day for me."  Well, after twisting her arm a little, she decided this would be a good time, so below is a picture of my Friday.

8:00 - 10:30 Candy Crush
I know, sad, but true.  My hubby asked several times if I was going to start getting ready, but I'm slightly addicted... again.  I had quit playing, but then my Mom sent me a request, so I had to respond, right?  I mean she texted me and everything, so once again I am living in Candy Crush world.  Now, I'm on level 377 and determined I'm going to beat the whole game.

12:30 - 2:45 Outlets
Oh, I love shopping!  My hubby and I planned this day trip over a month ago.  There's nothing better than spending just a little and getting a lot.  I think I have my fall clothes covered now.  Here's a picture of a few of my new shirts.  Sorry it isn't the greatest picture, but I loaded up at Talbots.  That's my favorite store in the world.

2:45 - 3:45 ???????
It wouldn't be a trip with me if we didn't spend some time lost.  The funniest part was I was using a map APP and I told my hubby that if he turned left, it would take us back to the Interstate.  Well, we turned right and it took us to the Interstate.  We drove right over it!  Something like 30 minutes later, we were finally heading in the right direction.

3:45 - 4:30 School Box and Hallmark
Okay, I LOVE School Box, but I don't get to go very often.  It sounds silly, but I have been really needing some tape and some paw print stickers.  I ended up buying like 5 rolls of tape and 5 packets of stickers.  I can't stand regular tape because things don't stay on walls for more than 2 days.  Mavalus tape always works.  I also grabbed this little Common Core notebook that has all the standards.  It's probably not worth what I paid for it, but I really needed something small that would fit inside my lesson plan book.  Plus, I have an app on my iPad, but it never fails that I need my iPad for something else when I need that APP.

5:00 - 6:30 Cheesecake Factory
This was probably one of my favorite parts of our day.  I haven't been here in years.  We both LOVED our dinners, but honestly, our desserts were even better.  My hubby got red velvet cheesecake and I got some sort of chocolate truffle cake.  Both were good and gone by the next day.

7:00 - 7:45 Barnes and Noble
Oh, how I LOVE this store!  We found a two-story Barnes and Noble and I was in immediate Heaven!  I've been trying to buy more books for my kiddos and I've tried to spend some time figuring out what they enjoy reading.  I ended up getting several books that my kiddos had requested, plus some more books to use for Guided Reading.  My boys really have gotten into these National Geographic books, so I'm trying to get all of them.  Several of the National Geographic books, I got three or four of that specific title so I can use them with some of my higher kids.

8:30 - 9:00 The Academy
It sounds silly, but when it cools down, I like to have one sweatshirt that's cute that I can wear on weekends.  I found one, but it's a little small, so definitely will be running it back home.

Alright, that was my fun day!  I also got to see my family and eat at my favorite restaurant on Saturday, so had a great weekend!  Hope you guys had a great weekend, too.
