Linkin’ Up With Love

First I want to start by thanking everyone for entering my Groundhog’s mini pack and craft giveaway. Congrats to Kara, Cristin, and Amy for having the winning comments. Check your emails ladies :)

Alright, so I am loving the linky party idea that Tessa from Tales from Outside the Classroom came up with. We get a chance to share the things we are loving and friends I am loving so much in life right now.

First, I am loving this guy. He keeps me sane when I feel like I am going crazy. He loves me unconditionally. He is my everything and I am so happy I get to do life with him by my side.


Next, I am loving Kristin, from A Day In First Grade. This girl has become such a great friend over the last couple of months. I am thankful for Jessica, at Mrs. Stanford’s Class for hosting the first ever product swap that put Kristin and I together. Kristin has some of the greatest products and her classroom ideas are amazing. You must check out her blog because you will get some fabulous ideas and her kids always look like they are having a blast. That is what teaching is about :)

A day in first grade

I currently have a love-hate relationship with house hunting. My husband and I have been in the house hunting/building/buying process for a month now and it seems like there will never be the right one for us. This whole process have been a huge patience builder for me and let me tell you, it has been a hard journey so far. Although it is difficult to wait and sometimes I feel like that perfect house is not out there for us, I know that God is in complete control and He will provide for all our needs is His timing and not my own. I am thankful that God is patient with me as I struggle with my own patience sometimes.

I could go on forever with everything I am loving currently, but I will spare you. Life is awesome right now and I am so thankful for everything I do have in life.
I will leave you with one last love and that is my Groundhog Mini Unit and my Valentine’s Letter Sort activity. I am not by any means a crafty person, but I cannot wait to do my groundhog craft with my kiddos and see what they think of this little guy.

  2. I just love linky parties because I always find new blogs to read (stalk). I am your newest follower and I love the grey and yellow colors of your blog.

    I feel your house-hunting pain. My husband and I are in our 3rd home and even though I miss going to open houses, I don't miss the hunt!!!

    Good luck to you.

  3. lovin' the abc sort. i would like to move to a bigger house but the thought of packing, let alone finding a house, is paralyzing.

  4. Awww, love your pic of you and the hubby. House hunting is a tedious process...just remember, everything has a way of working's in HIS control! :)
