Summer Bucket List

Teri {A Cupcake for the Teacher}, Hadar {Miss Kindergarten}, & April {A Modern Teacher} are throwing a FUN LINKY PARTY!!! Hop on over to their blogs & link up!! 

My summer bucket list includes working on a new theme for my it cheating if I've already started? LOL! Can you guess??


Yep, it's from Schoolgirl Style's Rainbow Collection. When I saw this, I just knew it was going to be my theme. 


I've already started planning, gutting, cleaning, sorting, and packing {whew!} my room a little at a time in anticipation for my new theme.

Also, this summer my hubby & I are taking my little one to...

We are HUGE Disney fans and we normally take a trip out there every other summer. EXCITED!!!

We are also going to Maui for a family wedding: 

I've never been to Maui so I am SUPER EXCITED!!! So if I neglect my little 'ol blog, I truly hope you'll understand ;) 

And finally, I plan to...stop and smell the roses. 

This year has been going by extremely fast, and I really need to remember to take time to enjoy life and appreciate God's blessings.  I need to remember that its okay that I didn't get every single item on my to- do list completed. I need to stop over- analyzing, and over- thinking the choices and decisions I have made. Basically, I need to stop being OCD!!! LOL :D

On another note, I have an AWESOME Giveaway coming up! I can't tell you much right now as details are still being finalized but I am REALLY EXCITED about this one, so please check back as you won't want to miss this!!!

Have a fantastic day!!

P.S. I wonder if I can begin cutting the things I laminated on the 5 hour plane ride to hubby just rolled his eyes at me...hahaha!!

  15. Hi Edana,
    I'm so glad you stopped by and commented on my blog. Great minds DO think alike! I am also in the midst of gutting and reorganizing my classroom. I'm not much of a clutter bug but it is time to purge a few thing in anticipation of my upcoming beautiful classroom!


  16. Love your theme! I saw that one as well and thought about doing it, but decided to go in a different direction. Have fun on your trip to Disney! We just got back from a brief weekend getaway. I just started blogging and am enjoying your blog. I'm your newest follower.

  18. Edana,

    Isn't the Rainbow Collection amazing!!! I fell in love with it the minute I saw it! I had been meaning to do the colorful poms over summer, and now I have more wonderful Rainbow inspiration!!! Can't wait to see how your room turns out!!
