Five for Friday - Shopping for Pete

Here's a look back at my week...a mix of vacation memories and settling back in at home.  I'm joining  Doodlebugs Teaching for Kasey's fantastic linky party.  Check out her Five for Friday

The lighthouses along the Outer Banks were simply stunning.  We visited three but the Bodie Island lighthouse was definitely my favorite.
 

On the way home, we stopped for lunch and a quick visit to a teacher store in Raleigh.  I've been to Stone's Education Superstore several times and it never disappoints.  This place is truly a superstore as it's over 17,000 square feet of well-stocked teacher shopping!

Sorry I was too busy shopping to take pictures of the store's interior.  But here's a little glimpse of some of the goodies I found.
Can you tell I'm switching to a Pete the Cat themed classroom this year?  I found two adorable borders, die-cut packages of Pete's shoes and his groovy buttons, paw print magnets, and a chalkboard style pennant banner that will coordinate nicely with all of Pete's colors. I can't wait to start setting up my classroom!
 
Once I was back in Georgia, I got in on the Target  $ Spot madness that's going around!  There's a Target within 15 minutes of my house in every direction so it's tempting to hit them all!
I'm in love with the little metal buckets! Aren't they cute?  I plan to use them for holding game pieces, flash cards, or writing supplies while we're Learning at the Teacher Table and doing small group instruction. 
 
Made a salad the other day that was almost too pretty to eat.  Lettuce topped with carrots, mushrooms, sugar snap peas, grapes, avocado, and almonds.  It takes me longer to cut and prep everything than it does to eat it!
 
 Happy 4th Everyone!
