So I woke up early this morning to hit up a garage sale all the way out in Hawaii Kai!! I know that I'm on a hunt for books since this lady is a teacher. When I get there I find out that she is also a third grade teacher!! She had about 6 boxes full of box. I walked away with a HUGE bag of about 30+ chapter/picture books for $14. Talk about deals!! I also got suckered into buying a class set of brand new clipboards for only $10!! I was so excited!

THEN, things get even better!! I head back to town and see a sale in an apartment on the same street that I live on. My BF doesn't want to go because it looks a little 'ghetto' but I decide we should just look. BOY am I happy I did. I scored hard cover picture books (tons of new Dr. Seuss books) 2 for 25 cents!! Can you believe that?? I also walked away with a few chapter books that were in great condition!! I got 15 books for $1.75. Boy am I one happy teacher...Only a teacher would understand this joy of buying books :)

Well it's almost 6:00 here and I have really got to get some work done. I was planning on using this day to plan, grade, and begin report cards but that hasn't happened. I've only managed to finish a book and take a nap :/ Better get going before the BF finishes work. We're off for a late date night (which is why I needed to take a nap!) to watch 21 JumpStreet.

    Your blog is adorable, and I LOVE the Angry Birds poster! How cool! I'm not much of an artist myself, so I totally relate! Thanks for sharing!
