Saturday Snapshots

I know, I already posted once this morning, but this was too good to pass up.
I am also linking up with Miss Nelson

Saturday Snapshots is about your life.
It is about capturing, documenting, and preserving all that is important to us.

Last week my niece got married and we had all kinds of family in town for the wedding.
I ♥ family time!

Here are some pics from our week...

Isn't she Beautiful!!!!

My kids

Cousins, but they look like brothers

This momma ♥s her boy!

My brother-in-law at the Father's Day BBQ

My other brother-in-law "bull riding" at the lake,

July Currently (a little bit early!)

Today I  am linking up with the FABULOUS, AMAZING,
Farley over at 
for the July Currently

Oh, and guess what?
I am sponsoring Currently this month!

I cannot believe that I was the first one up this morning!
I am almost never the first one up!
But I am lovin' that I can wake up whenever and however I want to during the summer.
No early appointments for me.

I got up so early today because I needed to go to the bathroom, but my mind started going about the social studies unit I want to work on today, and I couldn't go back to sleep!

Maybe because it's so dang HOT (118 yesterday!)
or maybe because I AM,
but I am feeling FAT these days.
I would love to lose about 30 pounds


This girl loves good food and thinks exercise is just plain BORING.
I'm trying Green Coffee Extract

Garcinia Cambogia

both recommended by Dr. Oz
but so far
I have faith, though.
In my mind I'm skinny!
Finally, I am a terrible procrastinator.
(OK, admitting it is the first step to recovery.)
I usually put things off until the last minute, but they DO eventually get done.
So, really, don't follow my advice on this one!
Your Turn!
Here's the Currently form.

Now, go link up yourself!
Have a great Saturday!

Five for Friday

Amazing, but I am actually posting my Five for Friday

I am linking up with Kacey from


I just may be on the road to recovery on my blog.
I have actually gotten some things done this week!

I finished working on two math games!
You can read my post about them here.

I have finally had a chance to play around with my Silhouette cutter that I bought several months ago, and made cutting files to go along with the above games so that I do nut have to cut out everything by hand twice.  (I will still have to cut them out after they are laminated though.)

Thanks to a sweet comment/suggestion from a follower I revamped 
the banana split game for my Firstie Friends - 
an ADDITION version with picture cues!
You can grab a copy here.

Today I revamped my oldest and best-selling product to include some clip art that I ordered especially from Nikki at Melonheadz Illustrating.

I has a new color cover and some cute graphics sprinkled throughout.
Click on the image to take a look.

and finally...

Lunch today with my besties from school who I haven't seen in a month.

Now it's back to work for me to keep the juices flowing.

How was YOUR week?

I'm Back!

Wow, what a month!
It is already the end of June!
I have been in a bit of a funk and have been seriously lacking in motivation, 
but I think I am back on a roll now.

Today I managed to finish up these two multiplication games that I have had in the works for some time.  They are favorites with my kiddos.  I made 'em a LONG time ago,
but have revamped them to make them cute.

These are great for whole class or in a math center.

As an added bonus, I have been playing around with my Silhouette cutter and have made cutting templates for you to make cutting them out easier (if you have a Silhouette, that is.)
When you purchase the file, just email me, and I'll send you the cutting templates as a BONUS.

Click on either of the images to check them out in my TPT store.

Leave a comment with your favorite way to reinforce multiplication fluency in the comments, along with your email, and which game you would like, and I will randomly choose a couple of you to receive a FREE copy!

I promise I'll be a better blogger!
Just getting back in the groove...
