starting school and pinning madness!

Well, this day has come sooner than later - school starts TOMORROW! Our school had open house Thursday night so I have met several of my students and am excited about the upcoming year ;)  I am very lucky to only have 13 students so I foresee lots of FUN! 
I have spent days and days getting my room and things ready for tomorrow, but today I'm taking a break from thinking about work.  Instead I have found myself on the couch catching up on blogs, Facebook, and spending some time browsing Pinterest.  I've never really spent much time on Pinterest, but people keep talking about it, so I gave in!  It is a good source for creative ideas - for the home, for school, yummy recipes, and DIY.  Here are a few of my favorites so far!
This is a DIY at the top of my list for the holidays :)  I may opt for hanging it inside due to the insanly windy thunderstorms we have.

I wish I had seen these earlier and I would have made them in time for the first day of school for my little owls!

I'm waiting for the next family gathering to try out this Easy Pecan Pie.  Nothing quite so great as a good southern pecan pie.

And one day this will be my child's nursery.  Oh my goodness!  I am in LOVE!
Since school does start tomorrow the housework hanging over my head should probably get done today (dirty dishes and laundry - yuck) because tomorrow I will be beat!  My mother-in-law must think so too because she's already planning to have dinner here ready for us :)

Good luck to everyone starting school tomorrow!

I have been addicted to pinning too. So many ideas and recipes and wonderful things. My girls start back to school on Friday and the owls are so cute I need to make then for them to have when I pick them up on their first day back.
