Spring Break Over: What I Did

19 April 2014

I really tried to accomplish a lot this Spring Break.   It was a bit hard since we lost 2 of our days to make up snow days.   It was not too exciting but it was relaxing.

What I Did:

  • I worked on the computer on my couch with my fur babies sitting next to me.

I just finished Mindy Kaling's book, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me.  I just think she is so funny!

Mindy's book inspired me to check out The Office on Netflix.   So funny!  I am on season 5 now!

  • I finished up my digraph center packets and bundled them!

The packet includes these center packets:

ph Digraph Centers

ck Digraph Centers

wh Digraph Centers

ch Digraph Centers

sh Digraph Centers

th Digraph Centers

  • I converted this old dresser into a dinning room buffet.   I took of the mirror.   I am using one of the drawers to store my plastic storage containers.  You know the ones that always come flying out of your cabinet when you open it and then they hit you in the head.   The draw solves that problem.  I also no longer have to shove them in the cabinet and close fast so that they don't fall out.   Exciting right?!

  • I took my babies to the dog park.  Poor old Niles (14.5 years old!)  has bad knees and needed to be carried most of the way, but he loved it. 

  • I finished another Gillian Flynn book, Dark Places.  I loved Gone Girl.   I cannot wait for the movie to come out, Ben Affleck is in it!   Her books are twisted and dark but the thing I love about them is that they are so unpredictable.  I love mysteries that just shock you.  Next up is Sharp Objects. 


I look forward to celebrating Easter tomorrow with my family!  I will be back soon with visual plans and an exciting contest from Schoolgirl Style!


  1. I adore your fur babies! I love to read, so I'll have to check these books out. I'm wanting to read the Divergent series next. I just finished Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Piccolt. Love all of her books! Looks like you had a nice {short} break. Summer is coming soon! Happy Easter!

    A Teaspoon of Teaching

    1. I just finished the Divergent series before Mindy's book. The last of the Divergent books is hard to get through. Good luck.

    2. I agree...it took me 3 days to get through the first two in the series, then 2 weeks to get through book 3...grrr so disappointed!! Lovin Theo James as Four in tne movie!!!

  2. I've got Dark Places on my Kindle and been trying to get back into reading it! I think you've sparked my motivation!

  3. You were very productive! Love the pics of your fur babies.

    Not Just Child's Play

  4. It looks like you had an amazingly productive and relaxing break! I love the converted dresser idea!

  5. I started reading Gone Girl, but couldn't get into it. Do you know which chapter starts to get exciting?

    Glad you had a fun spring break! Looks like you were super productive!

  6. I loved Gone Girl and Sharp Objects! I had a harder time getting into Dark Places. I might have to check out the Mindy Kaling book :)
