First order of business! In case anymore cares, I changed our bedding a couple of days ago. Spring bedding! We got this pretty quilt as a wedding gift back in October and I’m so excited to finally use it. Plus it’s from one of my favorite places, Cracker Barrel 🙂

Something that FINALLY came in the mail this week!!! 

As you should know by now, I’m kind of a child trapped in an adult body. I like to think that part of me is this way because I just love a lot of kid oriented things and the other part is because I’m an elementary teacher.

Anywho!

I ordered the children’s Christmas movie….The Tangerine Bear! I used to watch this alllll the time at my grandparent’s house. I’m way excited about it and a bit nostalgic.

But I LOVE SpaghettiOs!!!! And Lunchables were a major stable in my elementary lunchbox days. I loved the bologna ones for some odd reason and course I also lived back when they had ‘cola’ included in them occasionally.
