New to Thirty-One (and a hectic week!)

Phew!  I don't know about you all, but it certainly feels like a Friday here!  This week has already been SO incredibly hectic.  I feel like I've been running around like a chicken with its head cut off!  (Bok, bok, boooook!!!!)

Well to give you a QUICK breakdown of why I'm loosing my mind, I'll share a little list:
  1. It's State Standardized Testing Week here in Texas.  (Need I say more?)
  2. It's getting close to the end of the year, so I have like 39,485 annual ARDs.  (Not really that many, but it feels like alot!)
  3. Our "Class Cards" (the method we use to make next year's classes) are due on Friday.
  4. I have 2 routine doctor appointments this week. (Nothing major, no need to worry!  Just puts another little stressor, though, time-wise!)
  5. Did I mention it's our testing week?  Oh, and even though I teach 2nd grade, I'm still administering the test tomorrow!  Lovely!  :)
Okay, so now I've vented all my negatives, I'm sure you're ready to close the browser window and never return!  BUT WAIT!  I do have one SUPER fun and exciting positive!

To my long list of after school activities, I've now added the job title of "Thirty-One Consultant"!  I don't know if you all know of the company, but they make VERY cute, VERY useful, VERY affordable, and VERY addicting (yes, I said it!) bags and other items!  Have you heard of Thirty-One before? Used it? Have it?  I can't wait to get all my pieces!

Just take a look at my adorable new lunchbox:

They have SO many wonderful items for teachers, that I'll probably end up being my own biggest customer!  (And that's okay, because that's one of the main reasons I signed up in the first place!)  I swear, just look at all the practical items....

So yes, I'll probably be broke here in a few months, from my own Thirty-One addiction...but for now, I'm SO excited and ready to get my life organized and add some flare with some new bags and such! 

Hope everyone's having a great Tuesday, and I hope your week hasn't started off as CRAZY as mine!  Feel free to leave me any words of wisdom, or other advice to get me through my fun week! :)
