Spring Break Fun

Spring break week has been good, and now it's about over! :(  Why must it go by so quickly?  It was great to sleep in a little, it was fun to get in some good reading time!  It was nice catching up on some shows and clearing space on my DVR.  It was special spending some extra time with mom and Bella!  And it was wonderful to get a little retail therapy in as well.  Wednesday I got the chance to catch up with my amazing friend over lunch at On the Border!  I love that place!  We chowed down on those amazing chips and salsa, then I got chicken chimichanga (yummm!), and she had a loaded nachos kinda thing...they looked amazing!  Great food and a great time of catching up with my awesome friend!
On top of all that fun, I was inspired by Kristin at Little Miss Glamour Goes to Kindergarten to glitter up my shoes!!  She had a picture on her blog from the blog We Are Not Martha, that had the cutest glitter flats!  I had to give it a try!  I followed the instructions from We Are Not Martha.  I bought a pair of flats from Walmart (I know I could have used a pair of my own, but I was afraid to ruin try it on just any pair, or maybe could have found a cheaper pair, but I couldn't wait to try it).  I got some Mod Podge, mixed it with some glitter and then started the process of layering.  It was fun, and pretty easy.

I took the advice of We Are Not Martha and put on four layers of the glue/glitter mix.  I put lots of dark glitter in my mixture.  I can't wait to try it again with some lighter colors and see what that looks like.  I also want to try the glitter on the soles of a pair of heels.  I'll let you know if I do! :)
Love this picture that I got from a Just Fab shoes email, it's so's so me!

And...on top of all that fun, I came home the other day to find an envelope outside my door.
As I looked more carefully, I realized that it was the Smanimals Swag Pack that I was privileged to win!!

 I love Teacher's Market!!  I always check out this blog to see what wonderful giveaways or sweepstakes or freebies I can sign up for.  I saw the post for the Smanimal Swag Pack by Smencils and had to sign up....and then...I won!!  Yay!  If you haven't been by Teacher's Market  in a while, or at all, you need to head over there and check out all the wonderful things that you can be a part of.  I had never heard of Smencils before this blog, but I got a maple syrup and a cherry vanilla smencil, a blue raspberry colored smencil, and a creamsicle smen 2.0.  They all smell awesome!!  And it says they are made from recycled newspaper, how cool!  They are cool looking, cool feeling, and awesome smelling!  They are also trying to launch a stuffed animal line at Walmart...hence Smanimal.  They are cute stuffies that all have different scents, I love the name of the Llama...Pink Llamanade!  They are asking people to vote to get the stuffies on the shelves.  Check it out at Teacher's Market!  Hopefully the rest and fun of this week will help me be ready to get back next week!  Well...we'll see. :)
