#TpTSellerChallenge, Teachers Love Summer, and Summer Bucket List Linky

I am catching up on some of my linkys!  I promise this is not a long post.  I kept most of my stuff short, sweet and to the point!

Here are my stats {they could use some improving}!  I hope they look better in a few weeks.   Be sure to link up with Teach Create Motivate, Sparkling in Second, Third in Hollywood, and Peppy Zesty Teacherista for their #TpTSellerChallenge!


This week for Makeover Madness, I gave my products a face lift, not by updating the cover, but by updating the descriptions.  I provided a "Let's Get Connected Link" and "Resource Links" to almost half of my products.  I also added clean bullets, instead of using asterisks and spaces!  Do you know where you can find the round bullets or other shapes?  Visit, Text-Symbols.com!  You can just copy and past the symbols into the description box. I think it cleaned up the products listing, plus I now have links to other resources and to all my social medias! I plan to go in and make the changes to all my resources, but just getting half of them done was very time consuming!


I am offering two products I made the makeover to 1/2 off!  Click on the image to visit!




What is your favorite thing to do in the summer? Link up with Primarily Speaking to join in on the fun.



I get to spend more FOCUSED time and energy with my little ones, husband, and family.   One of my favorite things about summer is Sundays.  Almost every Sunday after church, we all {by all I mean my brother's family and mine} head over to my mom's for lunch.  Then we usually spend the day swimming in the pool or boating on the lake.


If you couldn't tell by #1 how much my family and I like the water, well let me restate it for #2!  My second favorite thing to do in the summer is swim!  It doesn't matter if it is in a pool, lake, or river!  Hey, I am from the south and  it is hot down here so we will swim in just about anything {just kidding}!  But will do love to swim and most days you will find my girls and I at the pool or on a boat at the lake!




The third reason I love summer is to read!  I usually can squeeze in a few novels.  I know most teachers are reading educational books, but not me!  Sorry, I know I should but I just can't bring myself to do it!  I do love to read mystery or thriller novels.  This is what I am reading right now!


Just wondering, do you like to read on a tablet or from an actual book??  I read from both.  But I would have to say,  holding an actual book is still my favorite.  I like the way they feel and smell {weird I know}!  



My #4 is MOVIES!!  I love watching movies.  It does not matter if it is at a theater or curled up on the couch with my family.  We just saw Jurassic World and it was AWESOME!  Plus I usually can squeeze in a few more date nights with my husband in the summer, so that means we actually get to see something besides kid movies!




Reason #5 I get more time for me!  This can be to do things I enjoy, such as this {blogging}, creating TpT products, scrapbooking, taking longer walks, sleeping later, staying in pj's longer, or just enjoying a cold beer or a glass of wine on the back porch with my husband, while he grills {this seems to happen more in the summer}!

Last but definitely not least, here is my Summer Bucket List!  Some of the items can go with my favorite thing about summer.  Is there something you hope to scratch off your list before summer is over?  Be sure to link up with, What the Teacher Wants!



Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!  I can't wait to read what you put for your answer in the link ups!

  1. Thanks for linking up Jamie! I'm with you on the reading. I probably should read educational books, but I don't. I read lots and lots of chick lit. #sorrynotsorry Haha! Chilling in the water sounds like a great way to spend time as a family while you beat the heat! Aren't summer movies the best? Enjoy the rest of your summer. It sounds like it's off to a great start!

  2. Oh I love to hold a book too! I do read on my iPad, but I still prefer a book! Just spent the whole afternoon and evening in the pool! Summer nights rock!

  3. Hi, Jamie! You did a terrific job with the makeover of your product. I love the papers you created. I am a new follower in your store and on Bloglovin'. By the way, we'd probably get along amazingly....I LOOOOVE the water (beach or pool for me) and reading. I just read a fabulous book called Snow in August by Pete Hamill. I'm not sure what your reading style is, but this was a good read. Enjoy your summer!

  4. The papers are gorgeous! My favorite thing to do in the summer is relax and reorganize at home, since I don't have much time during the school year. Have a great summer!

  5. I prefer the hands-on, papery books! I do have a Kindle as well. I can read on my phone or on my Kindle Paperwhite. It is nice to always have a book at my fingertips when I want it. Happy summer!
