Dollar Tree Finds

Today I took my sister and we went to visit the Dollar Tree. I found a stack of these:

I got all the ones they had (a total of 15!). I'll have to troll other Dollar Trees to see if I can find 5 more in this color (or another color that compliments it), just to make sure I have a full set in case I get more students or if I change districts (hopefully not!). What are they going to be, you ask? Well, I am going to combine them with these ribbons that I picked up at AC Moore earlier this week
I picked out all the ribbon first, so how lucky was I that I found baskets to go with it! I'm working on a blue/green ocean theme for next year, so these will fit right in! You'll have to wait for a Monday Made It to find out what I'm going to do with them (not this Monday,  but soon!).

It is wicked hot here today, so I dressed appropriately for 95 + heat!

Shrug and Shirt: Kohls
Shorts: Old Navy
Tank: Target
Flip-Flops: NY & Co.

I had my sister as a photographer, so these turned out better than me setting the timer and running in front of the camera!

Yes, I really am that white :) Between the Irish and Norweign in me (and the fact that I spend a lot of time indoors :), I light up in the dark. :)

Smiles and Sunshine,

  5. We LOVE any dollar store!! How is it that a teacher can always go into a dollar store and come out still spending a ton of money! Oh well, they have GREAT stuff! We are now following you and would love it if you check us out sometime!
