Must Have Mondays

This is my first time linking up with Sabra from Teaching with a Touch of Twang for Must have Mondays, but it seems to be right on time! As I posted about recently, my family will be moving to the Destin, Florida area next month and you all know what that means... new house, new furniture, new "stuff" in general. Now, if it were completely up to me, I'd online shop my way into a bazillion dollars worth of debt before I even packed one box. Luckily for me, my husband won't let that happen.:) He makes us go "window shopping" to find the best prices and "backwards plan" as well. It makes complete and total sense, as he ALWAYS finds the best deals, but my goodness it sometimes kills the impatient side of me. Anyway, there are many things I MUST HAVE in the near future, most classroom supplies and some home goods. Let me show you... :)

1. A laminator. Sweet Jesus this thing would be a lift saver... and perhaps I'd actually laminate everything I intended to, to begin with. To be honest, I was in charge of ordering teacher appreciation gifts for a raffle, and definitely ordered this bad boy with plenty of supplies. Did I win? Heck yes I did... however, I was in Florida house shopping on that blessed Friday, and my principal initiated the "must be present to win" rule. I'm not bitter at all. Moving on...

2. A new couch! My sweet Lilly has successfully spilled every type of juice on our current couch, so it's needed!

3. Other home goods...

...a floating desk. I had never heard of this concept until yesterday, but now I'm somewhat amazed by it! What a space saver! Imagine this in a classroom... :)

Enough from what I need in my life... tell me what you want or "need!"


  1. How fun is all that new furniture!? And I will totally be bitter and outraged outwardly on your behalf, lol. That's just silly, especially on Teacher Appreciation Week! So glad you found me! I'm happy to be your newest follower and thanks for linking up :o)

  2. Mandy, go to Walmart (open 24 hours) and get one tonight! Tell your husband I've saved you some money by telling you I've researched laminating sheets and Sam's Club is the cheapest! :O) I wanted to reply back to your comment, but you're a no-reply blogger.

  5. I have that same laminator and love it. It's cheap, but works great!


  6. Ahhh...the laminator! I must get one. You guys are killing me. I now feel like I can't live without it either and don't know why I've waited so long. ;)
