Monday Link Ups

If you are an optimist, I am early for this link up. I am starting this post on Tuesday, the week before.
Since I am still working, I am crazy busy. I have limited time.

If you are a pessimist, I am a week late since I didn't get a post done for two of my favo linky parties. I am starting this post a day late in your eyes.

I am fine either way. I am too tired to be offended one way or the other.

I did have time to stalk, I mean browse blogs though and every one has such GREAT ideas. My to do list just keeps getting longer and longer....

This week's "made it" is of course, school related for me.

During the huge teacher Appreciation Sale, I purchased these from Miss Math Dork. I love, love, love her stuff. Everything is very professionally done. These are her "How to be a Good Mathematician Posters"

I finally printed and laminated the posters! (I love, love, love my laminator as well!!!) Click here to get your own set from her TpT store.
I am ready to hang mine up!!!
I know some of you think this may take too much ink. If you think that, use it as a power point. I plan to show it that way to my kiddos, but I want them up all year long. This way they are sturdy and I can refer to them when my kids get lazy, frustrated, etc...

My Must have is a home product.
I must have coffee and since Christmas I must have my K-Cups.
Keurig® Vue® V700 Brewing System
My husband and I both bought one for each other for Christmas. We decided great minds think alike.We only kept one. I absolutely could not start my day without coffee. This has been awesome for us. We no longer waste coffee. We have one at work as well, it has been very nice to have that in our workroom. 
I normally only drink coffee at home. I have been known to have multiple cups of coffee at home. I also drink coffee at night. It does not keep me up at night. I love the flavors and options I have with the K-cups and yes, it may be more expensive, but since we don't have a Starbucks any where close to us, I accept the splurge! 

Happy Monday everyone!

    1. how smart to print them half size I didn't even think of that option. Don't tell my husband. (LOL)!

  4. Those posters are just fabulous! You had me laughing with your Keurig story! I can't believe you both bought each other one! I have one too and now can't live without it. I will drink a cup in the morning and a cup at night. Coffee doesn't keep me up early either! We are lucky...I think?!? :)

  8. I'm an iced coffee girl! I'll have to go check out those posters-they look awesome! When I have full color posters I develop them at Office Depot-they print on laser printers and they look so crisp, plus teachers get a discount.
