when the target list changes....

have you ever been just about ready to
check out of Tar-jay, and then you see it...
something awesome you really need want ? ? ?

holy guacamole....that's what happened with THESE boots... 

never fear, there were a few things in my cart I didn't necessarily "need"
(like a few candles, stationary, etc....those went back on the shelves, haha)

you can find them HERE in a few cute color combos

happy weekend


happy weekend! 
I am late to the game for InstaFriday
and with the busy-ness of last week
I don't have many pix...but here goes...

Friday night lights, our girls did fantastic...amazing...wonderful...


I once swore off school shirts and sweaters, they 
are just NOT so cute....but with my 
new adventures in AVID I had to 
wear this sweater to back-to-school night...

my daughter sent me this text/pic...
I know the drug reference is horrible, BUT
it is so funny because I love the smell of books...
I always tell my students the story of how I 
love the smell of new books because it reminds me of when
I first started to love reading...so now I smell books..weird but true..
they, too, will be caught sniffing books in the library....(love it)

we celebrated another birthday....16 and awesome....


we are thinking of remodeling our kitchen....
leaning towards the middle sample for our countertops....

happy weekend!

long overdue instafriday


I've been snappin' pix on my phone
but they've not made it to instafriday in some time!

summer was a blast and a little busy with
AVID Summer Institute and moving into a new site...

here's what we've been up to...

the same  {new} frames for my darlings, they are so cute....


my little teaching corner in my new room...a brand-new school...it's so amazing....
the kids love it, I love it, yippppeeeee....

this is my morning commute, I had to take this pic..
really, how beautiful is this? 
sometimes there are hot air balloons in the sky
this time of morning....


some fun with grandparents....love our Nini and Pops...


the hubs and I took a little trip to CO.....how pretty is this river in Golden? 
wait, what's that in the distance behind us? 

we visited the Coor's Brewing factory...what a neat tour... 
it was truly so interesting to learn about the founders and
the whole process....
oh and this goofball...I thought he was acting normal for the picture...haha

dinner with our besties...so fun to see our sweet friends ! ! ! 


the Red Rock Amphitheater...
ok, this was amazing, but we felt really out of shape....
all of these awesome people are running and hopping these steps....


all of us had our "first day of school" on the same day....

fun walking around the GasLamp District after the AVID conference...


happy Friday :)

Remind 101

have you heard of Remind 101? ? ? 
a colleague introduced me to this amazing little app/website...
check it out HERE
LOVE THIS! I have been using this for the last two weeks...the kids love it, too!  Remind101 is a FREE, safe way for teachers to text message students and stay in touch with parents without ever sharing phone numbers.
once you sign up you will be issued a "fake" number...
the students/parents then input this number in their phone
as your contact "Mrs.Morgan Remind101"

then they text a specific code (which you have assigned to each class)
to this number...they will get a message back asking for their name...
then they are on your contact list and receive text message reminders
whenever you send one out (via the computer or your app)...

It's super easy and fun (for the students)...
one of my students said "Oh my gosh I totally forgot to do my homework,
then the text came through and I was like wow I better do my homework!"

huh, amazing....cool....love it! 

xoxo Melodee
