Energizer Bunny

Today I feel as though I have been going, and going, and going!  My hubby is gone on a military trip for 6 days which means its just me, the twins, and my sweet puppy, Polly.  He left on Wednesday morning and isn't coming back until Tuesday night.  Dealing with the twins when you at least have 1 on 1 coverage is simple, but when they outnumber me 2 to 1, it becomes interesting!  They were invited to a birthday party at Chuck E Cheese this afternoon and I was able to dress us all and leave in enough time to go get a gift, buy some sweet stuff from Target and still be EARLY for the party!
Check out my haul from the cheapy bins at Target!  Sweet metal mailbox, accordion file for the awesome bubblegum multiplication challenge, and some awesome info cards!  All for $4 :) 

They had the best time at Chuck E Cheese.  I wasn't sure if there would be anything for them to do, but they had these little rides like they used to have a grocery stores back in the day (AKA: when I was small)  This place was packed out with kids as you would expect on a Saturday, but it was also HOT!  Today in NC the temp got up to the 70's in some parts of our area!!!  That is insane for January.  So needless to say, if its that hot outside, it was sweltering inside.  And we don't have to discuss the kids running everywhere and screaming at the top of their lungs.  We stayed at the party for about 2 hrs and we had all had our fill :)

I was so excited about going home to crash and put the babies down for a nap, but then my mom called.  She wanted me to come by and bring the girls over for her to see.  We ended up staying there, going to eat (which they paid for, so I won't complain too much!) and I didn't get home till 7ish.  I then had to give the babies a bath and get them ready for bed!

I am officially EXHAUSTED! But I can't sleep!  I have all these ideas floating around in my head.  I want to make a soil unit and when I saw those 50 States cards, I began thinking about this sweet government unit I want to make.  Unless I get a 4th wind tonight, I will be crashing very soon!!

To top my awesome day off, I hit 50 followers!!!  I can't believe that 50 of you actually care what is going on in my little twin, taco eating world!!!
What kinda awesomeness guys working on?!?!?!??!

I am student teaching in a third grade classroom this semester, so I will definitely be hitting up your blog LOTS for great ideas!! Keep up the good work!!!

  3. Thanks for sharing your Target finds. I saw those cards last summer and wished I picked them up. I need them for our HW bags. I am new to blogging too and it is amazing how one day things in blogging world take off. Congrats on 50! You are one very busy lady!!!!!!
