Weekend Shopping Success!

So...I don't know how you spent your Saturday, but I spent mine with my hubby in Gainesville doing a little shopping! We had a fun day together....a delicious lunch at Red Robin, and then did some shopping. I went to Target, Michael's, Office Max, and Barnes & Noble.
All I bought at Target was the pack of Play-Doh and the rainbow alphabet stickers. It was crazy in there....I forgot fall classes start at University of Florida on Monday so there were families and college students out dorm and apartment shopping!!! CRAZY! My son is staying home to go to college so none of that for us, however, I do remember when we moved my daughter to Tallahassee to attend FSU and went through some of this craziness...LOL! Back on topic....I bought a 6 pack of Scotch tape at Office Max on sale for $9.99 and it came with a bonus hands free tape dispenser for the wrist. I already have one at home so I can take this one to school with the tape. I only buy Scotch brand! 
I'm a tape....and crayon (only Crayola....please and thank you!) snob! I bought the nerd bird birthday crowns and labels at Michael's for half price. The crowns were $1.50 and the labels were $0.50 a pack.....WOOT!

Also at Michael's, I got jewels for my clip chart clothespins. When the students reach the top, they will receive a jewel for their pin. After 5 jewels are earned, the clip will move to the Hall of Fame and they will get a new one! I bought these four colors.....

And, I already had the green ones at home. I bought them for a bridal shower back in May and only used a couple, so I didn't have to buy any green!

At Barnes & Noble, I bought a couple books for my classroom. I went in there looking for this one....

and came out with it and this one! I also bought something for my SLANT partner, but it's a secret!

Isn't it adorable? I will use it to introduce color words and learning how to read them. I just love it!

Today, I bought two adorable little Adirondack chairs for my library. They are in my vehicle though and it is raining, so no sharing a photo! I also bought ink so I can print lots more goodies for my classroom! 
Oh yeah...I almost forgot! I bought two new tops and a new dress. I didn't need to buy clothes since I just bought a ton of new stuff at the beginning of summer for my cruise, but I did want a couple new things. Here is the dress....I am in love with it! My mom was with me and she said I had to get it!!!
I love can even see one of my five chevron scarves hanging to the left of it!

And here are the two tops I bought. This is the first animal print I have ever bought, but I love the tunic style & the rayon fabric, so I bought it! 

I also love this top....I have an aqua tank I can wear under it. It is so comfy and feels so good on! 

So, did any of you buy any goodies over the weekend....besides all the awesomeness on sale on TPT? 
I have a few things I need to hop over and purchase soon! Oh, and if you didn't get a chance to see my classroom photos, you can see them here!
Have a wonderful week at school, or at home if you're fortunate enough to still be on break!

Until next time.....
