Five for Friday August 8th

I'm linking up for Doodle Bugs for Five for Friday! 
I finally received the check from the insurance company and was able to sign the papers to buy my new van! It is beautiful and I love it!! I have posted a picture before, but it is officially ours now! 
The insurance check cleared the day of the TpT sale...yeah...so you know...I might have gone a little crazy! If you follow me on Instagram, you saw what I purchased. I mostly stocked up on clip art, since I'm not in a specific grade level this year. I did manage to stay within my budget and I'm super excited about the sets I bought!
I posted my very first paid TpT product, my binder covers!!! I have even sold a couple already! I am like a kid on Christmas morning every time I get that email! It is such an awesome feeling!! I feel honored that people would spend their hard earned money on one of my products! I'm excited about starting this journey and thankful for the opportunity!! They are on sale until Sunday.
I've already been working on adding more covers to this set with all the new Melonheadz sets I bought during the sale!
I spent lots of special time with this girl! Her birthday always gets overshadowed by the 1st day of school and my other kids are coming home tomorrow, so we went out and celebrated early! After we picked up the van, we went to the mall, got new school shoes and clothes, Build a Bear, rode the carousel, got a free Lego set at the Lego store, and had Freebirds for dinner. She said it was, "The Best Day Ever!" She always says that, but I agree with her this time! 
I went shopping with Susan from Caterpillar Wings and helped in her classroom for a little bit. I don't feel like I helped much, but we had fun visiting! Her classroom is already looking amazing, I can't wait until she reveals it!! We found this amazing turquoise five drawer cart at Big Lots. I blogged about all my turquoise finds!
I finished a treat bag topper that I originally made for Susan. She wanted a quick and easy treat for Meet the Teacher, so she bought a big box of Goldfish at Costco! I added options for the beginning of the school year, end of school year, and all purpose gifts. I just posted them on TpT and they are on sale until Sunday!

    1. Oh my goodness, Ashley! I love your blog and TpT products! Your Blog Organizer and Planner helped push me to start my own blog!! I was on the fence for over a year, thinking that I just wouldn't have the time. Then you posted your organizer and I thought to myself, if I get myself organized I can do this! Thank you so much for being my inspiration and stopping by my little blog!!!!
