Blogger Exchange and Saturday Snapshots

Well the weekend is finally here!!!  I survived my first full week back to school.  But I have to tell you, I was one tired little mama come Friday afternoon.  Have you ever heard the saying, "Stick a fork in me, I am done".   That is exactly how I felt by Friday afternoon.   It is so crazy how you get so out of whack from being off for a few months.  I really think it has more to do with all the stress that goes along with making sure everything is up and running that first week.  No worries though,  I will have all my mojo back in full force within another week.

Now on to fun blogging stuff!  I am linking up with two great blogs {Covered in Glitter and Glue and Run! Mrs. Nelson's Got the Camera} for their linky parties.  The first is with Covered in Glitter and Glue.  About a month ago I signed up to participate in the Blogger Exchange.   I have to admit that this was the first time that I did something like this.


I was so happy when my package finally arrived.  My blogger exchange partner was Portia Pitts from Tidbits From Ms. Pitts.  I love how her blog name rhymes.  Plus we kinda match since both of our blogs have "Tidbits" in the title.  First it arrived in a cute pink box.  Oh, the fun of unwrapping!!!  It was a cute teacher tote with my initial monogrammed on it.   The monogrammed also had a little yellow daisy by it.  It will match my theme perfectly.   I also loved that the bag had pockets in the front where you could store scissors, pens, or whatever you need.   I absolutely loved it.  Thank you Portia so much.  You brightened my week.  I hope my arrived in one piece {ha}! I also want to thank Covered in Glitter and Glue and Adventures of Ms. Smith for hosting.  It was so nice to receive a little something for back to school.


The second person I am linking up with is with Michele at Run! Mrs. Nelson's Got the Camera for her Saturday Snapshots!   Most of my snapshots have to do with going back to school.  I just love looking at other people's pictures.  It is kinda like you get a small glimpse into their life.  Here is a glimpse into some of the things going on in my life.



This is my second grade team!  Hands down the best group of women/teachers to work with!!!


The girls and I on our first official day back to school!


They needed a pictured with daddy too!!!


I had to include this one in my snapshots.  I totally love it!  I didn't even know that my oldest had taken this picture of herself until I was writing this post and going through the pictures on the camera.   What a silly girl!!!!


So there you have it, my two link ups!  This week has been exhausting but exciting at the same time.  I can't wait to read about your blogger exchange and take a peek at your snapshots.  Don't forget to enter my 100 follower giveaway.   A winner will be announced at the end of next week.  As always thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!
