Hey there! After a bit of a lull in writing I have a bunch of posts ready to go, but I really want to share a few things this weekend that are high on my list right now. My fancy at the moment is all about spring and looking for the positive....
Penn State Dance Marathon - My hometown, my heart. Penn State's dance marathon, known as THON, the largest student-run philanthropy in the world, is happening this weekend. Students raise money all year, culminating in a 46 hour dance marathon, all of it benefiting children's cancer care and research. Since it's inception, students have raised over $136 million for the kids. Check it out and consider giving to this inspiring and wonderful cause.
Principal's Snow Day - This probably qualifies as teacher humor, but I cannot help myself from sharing. Gerry Brooks is an elementary principal who posts the funniest YouTube videos about working in education. My favorite is his "Bear Protection Products" video, but the snow day one seems particularly timely for February, even though we haven't had one single snow day this year.
Paper Source Garden Party Collection - Moving on to spring (if we aren't gonna get any snow days, we might as well just move on to spring)....When I opened my email from Paper Source earlier this week and saw their Garden Party collection, I thought "I want to live in this pretty papery world!" Tea scented erasers! Paper Flowers! Garden Party Journals! I'll take one of each!
Loft's Spring Collection - I'm going to tell the truth, Loft's clothes haven't been thrilling me the past few seasons. This spring, however, they are back! I'm loving their florals and feminine details, especially the gorgeous blouses. I don't need any clothes right now, but I may just have to pick up a few tops anyway ;)
I'll be back later this week with a few fun decorating tweaks that I've made recently!
