Sunday Smorgasbord, A Freebie and Best of the Midwest Give-Away

Hi friends!  I hope you are having a fantastic weekend!  I am linking up with Michelle over at  Fabulous In First for her Sunday Smorgasbord linky party.  This post will have a few of the random happenings going on in my life!

#1.  We celebrated my mom's 70th birthday this weekend!  It's kind of a big deal too!  Last year my mom had a kidney transplant.  My cousin gave her a kidney and gave her a second chance at life!  Each day she is here is a blessing and she is able to live a normal life because of my sweet cousin.
 It was a beautiful night.  It reached 60 degrees (maybe).  I am loving this weather!

 My mom and dad.
 My family.

 Me and My Hubby.

 My boys with my mom.

#2.  I have really enjoyed shopping this past week!  I hit the jackpot with these deals that I found!  Every single thing in the pictures below was only 50 cents a piece!

 Who doesn't need a mini screw driver in their classroom?  It has 6 different attachments.

 Sticky notes 

 A duster.  My boys wanted one for home too!

 Invites.  I am going to be putting the kids pictures on these for display in my classroom.

 Little note cards.

 50 chalkboard print thank you cards.  I was jumping for joy with this find!

 More thank you cards.


 Positive Note Cards

 More cards.

 #3  I have been spending a lot of time with my boys this summer and we are having fun!  We stopped at Cheesecake Factory for dinner one night this weekend.
 My son has food allergies and really doesn't enjoy many desserts.  He said he was going to skip it.  I found this treat on the menu and surprised him with it!  His eyes got so big when we saw the HUGE bowl of strawberries!

 My son love the Hershey Bar cheesecake!

I was so happy with my avocado egg rolls! They are the best!

#4.  Many of you are going back to school soon! My kids don't come back until after Labor Day so I  still have some time to relax to get ready for school.  I created this freebie for you!  I feel like I am always cramming so much information onto one sheet of paper.  I also have lots of sheets with different info in different places. This year I am going to have my parents fill out this flip book with different information on each page.  I will keep each book in my students files.

#5.  Finally today is your last chance to grab some great freebies and sign up for our Best from the Midwest give-away!  
Hop on over to this post to find out how!  Good luck!! 
Have a great week!
