Not Me Monday - Guess What I found?

I had so much fun participating in Not Me! Monday last week I thought that I would join in the fun again.. You guys should really check out some of these post.. Head on over to McMamma's to see all of those who have posted Not Me! Monday entries..I did not skip ahead a day in my lesson plans at work because I forgot my camera at home. Following a plan is far more important then having pictures for my blog right? Yep, it totally is.. that is why I would never do that...

I did not go and see Nights in Rodanthe this weekend and bawl my eyes out. Of course I wouldn't do that because I read the book and already knew exactly what would happen. Who would put themselves through all that crying? Not me, that's for sure.

I did not get really excited when I found out that Washington Redskins beat the Cowboys. It is not true that my favorite team is whomever plays the Cowboys. that would just be silly..

I did not go to my school and work on my room for 3 three hours on Saturday. I have better things to do then work on the weekend. While I was not there, I most certainly did not cover every inch of all my rooms in Halloween decor. On the way home from not being there, I did not fret about the sensory overload my students will face when they see all the decorations that are not there..What teacher in her right mind would get her students all excited on a MONDAY. Ugh. Not me.

I did not borrow a bar of soap and toilet paper from my parents house because I didn't want to go to Wal-Mart on a Sunday afternoon. After not borrowing from my folks, I did not end up at Wal-Mart anyway for one must never borrow deodorant from anyone. Eww.

I did not think that Edie Britt's new husband on Desperate Housewifes looked familar. And when I did not finally realize who I thought he looked like, I did not ask my friend - Hey does he look like Marlboro man Man to you? You know- PW's husband. As if, they were a household name.
I did not secretly wish that Rob Lowe would show up at my door for no reason, while I was watching Brothers and Sisters. I mean come on.. Who visits after 10 on a Sunday night..
(now your not wishing that either are you?)


Okay, I could go on and on. Seriously (can you tell Grey's is back on). But I will stop with the Not Me Post.. Until next week, of course.


Do you remember this post? The one in which I was searching for the 3 opening frames? Well I found them.. Of course not in my town.. ugh. But nonetheless, I found them. I bought 5 of them. I loved the idea found at Joy's of Home so much that I wanted to try and make some for fun little gifts to give.. Here are the first two that I have made.. I plan on making a few more and I am hoping they get better each time.. They are super easy to make..


Okay- So I added bows. To both of mine.. I likes bows. I think everything looks cuter with a bow. Aren't they so fun? On the next one I am going to make sure the letters aren't so big.. but trial and error works for me..



I would have been way more productive this weekend.. but um, I had a little bit of a distraction laying around..


Head on over to Ms. Whitney's to enter for a chance to win all things pink in Honor of her friend Lindsey. Also take the time to read her moving email from this dear friend.

Ready or Not, Monday's here!

I would be so disappointed if Rob Lowe showed up at my door!!!!!

The Shillingburg's said...

You're so great! Such a good blogger! I really do enjoy reading your posts. Did you take pictures of all the new decorations in the class?

The Saras Family said...

You do NOT have the cutest Fall decorations ev-er in your house.
oh...and you are the ONLY one who wished RL would show up at your door...even though your husband was sitting right next to you!

The Storlies said...

I'm sitting here all alone laughing about you borrowing soap and TP from your folks and then going to WalMart anyway. That's too funny!

Mike and Katie said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm having such a blast checking out everyone's blogs.

I've done the "take out the word love" thing, too. I've also written prayer journals for my boys by taking out the me's and I's in the Psalms and inserting their names. It's very powerful.

Solei said...

I love how the bows look too!

and LoL @ the deodorant thing, oh so true!
=0D

Employee No. 3699 said...

I so glad you did not do any of those things last week!

Your frames look really cute. I'm looking forward to see what you do with the rest of them.

Glamorous Life of a House Wife said...

Your Not Me's crack me up. Okay, so you are almost caught up to me in the Twilight series!! I am in the middle of book 3, but haven't had time to finish it because of the craziness that is my life!! SLOW DOWN, WOMAN!

Maryland Mommy said...

Thanks for hopping over to my blog..it is nice to know that people other than my mom read it ;)! Yes, yes, very teary when my son said "mommy always comes back". We had been working on that all morning before he went to school and it was so awesome to know he understood me!

I used to work with 3 years olds and I understand their fears so it is nice to have subsided my little guys biggest fear!!!

Love the frames by the way! I wish I was crafty but I am soo not. I can dream though and maybe will take a trip to Michael's today to see what I can come up with :)!

Brianne said...

I teach 4th grade, and this is my 4th year teaching. Thanks for vising my blog. My kids are eating snack right now, so I will respond more to you when I get home.

Jo-Jo said...

I am not going to make myself on of those frames. Nope not me!

I was sad when the cowboys lost, as my hubby is a HUGE fan....hehhee


LOL at Rob Lowe!!

Michelle said...

Ok, we totally watch the same shows!! Hahahha, MM is so much cuter than the actor that plays Eddie's husband on Desperate Housewives. B&S was so good!!

You are so creative. You inspire me to get more crafty!!!!

Your kids are going to love all the Halloween decorations.

Your going down for that Cowboys comment!! LOL....j/k.....I never really cared who wins in the games but I sure had fun going to watch them play! Might actually start watching football! My mom is a huge Steelers fan and she had to call just so I could hear her laughing in the phone about their loss! So Rude!! :P

SondreLyn said...

I love your posts...SO CUTE!!! I was cracking up!

Your frames turned out really well, I am totally impressed. Not being crafty myself, I may have to give it a try anyway!

Rose C said...

Cute frames, I love those!

Love your Not Me Monday! Thanks for dropping by, I love guests!

Gayle said...

The comment about the Cowboy's was too funny! I love your frames...maybe I'll try that in my free time (what free time?). Thanks for visiting me (I'm in Alaska...hence the snow!).

Gabbin' with Giff said...

Deodorant, and toothbrushes should never be borrowed! Good girl for not bending on that rule!

Keli said...

Love your blog and Not Me's! And I also love the frames! EEK is my fave! Thanks for the idea! Thanks for the comments on my blog!

Keli said...

Oh and I love the Twilight series!! I did not sit outside in my car to read during my daughters basketball practice! I would never do that!

Ordinary Mom said...

Great post! I so would not want Rob Lowe to visit my house unannounced either.

Aimee' said...

Oh my goodness, I can't wait to see Nights In Rodanthe! Tell me...how awesome was it? I read the book but you know, I need a movie recap. ;)

the higgins' said...

I was thinking the same thing about Rob Lowe!! What would I do if he showed up at my door, saying i was his long-lost love.

And earlier this year I wasted tons of time reading those same books. Movie coming out end of November--I might get to see it early!

Jen D said...

hahaha...you definitely have me laughing!! Love the not me's and your picture frame project-how crafty!

Allmykids123 said...

Girlfriend, I'm cracking up because every blog that I go comment on, you are right before me. I'm trying to comment on all the blogs on MckMama's too.. but am not as fast as you are.

Have a happy day!

Jennifer said...

my husband thought that edie's husband (on DH) was a rock singer (sting, maybe..)...(I can't remember now). so cute with your Rob Lowe infatuation! U GO GIRL!

Tonya said...

Hey there!

I wanted to hop over and say THANKS for commenting on my blog today. It's SO NICE to "meet" you!

I LOVE your blog and really enjoyed your, "Not Me!" Monday. Is MckMama not the biggest hoot ever? HA!!

Melissa said...

Rob Lowe can come visit me any day!!!!

Oh and BTW-- no, my son did not get to play first base...by the time he ran over there, another little boy snuck in... so, i DID NOT think in my head that I wanted to walk right over to him and tell him to get out of the way.... I would never think that!! :)

Mojito Maven said...

that's ok, you'd be a HUGE Dallas fan if you lived her...I guess I'll forgive you.

djp said...

okay, so totally love the 3 frame idea! thanks for sharing!

and I for sure will not be joining the crying eyes at that movie this weekend...nope, not me!

Amy said...

Your frames are adorable! Bows and all!
And for the record, "I DID NOT go see Nights in Rodanthe and cry my eyes out either. *sniff*sniff* Really, I didn't. *sniff*sniff* Okay, well maybe I did, but I couldn't help myself. *sniff*sniff*" ;)

God Bless,
Amy:)

Lindsay said...

Oh my gosh. I couldn't believe when you said that your favorite team is anyone playing the Cowboys. I feel EXACTLY the same! LOL..
Love those frames by the way.

Megan said...

Those frames are so cute!
I'm in book two of the Twilight series. So, how crazy would you think I am if I said, I don't really like the books, I just can't get into them. But I am trying!!!

Becky Welch said...

Oohh I love the frames!! May have to borrow that idea!!

Brittany said...

Girl - I scored the student price for my Fashion Show ticket, so thanks for the well wishes (15.00 compared to 25.00 - it just seems so much cheaper to me - is it just me?).

P.S. Thanks for turning me on to the Joy/three picture frame... that shall be my weekend project this coming up weekend... love those inexpensive, quick, and most importantly FUN projects.

Collegegirl said...

I did not wish for the same Rob Lowe to show up at my door when Bro and Sis was on last night. I did not jump for joy that this post got 4 comments.
Thanks for commenting!

Great idea!!!

MLC's Mom said...

I really should try out those frames too! You are very crafty. Your blog has such a good feel to it. Love your writing...

Smiling Shelly said...

I am not thinking about playing the not me Monday post.

I also did not go to the movies this weekend to see Nights in Rodanthe...and everyone else that I went with did not bawl their eyes out either...

I also absolutely did not love those adorable frames that you made. I do not think you are super crafty either. :)

Happy Not Me Monday :)

Meaghan said...

Rob Lowe I cant get past that sorry....

Danielle in MO said...

I didn't go see Nigts in Rodanthe on Friday either and cry my eyes out - and I didn't read the book before hand and know it would be so sad and still subjected myself to that sadness on purpose!!

Lindsay said...

Oh - I LOVE LOVE LOVE those frames! And nice little cute touches with the bows and spiders! Gee, are you a teacher?! Teachers are always creative...except my hubby...he's a man. :-)

Amanda Marie said...

Oh no... Now I know I'm going to bawl when I see Nights in Rodanthe! Thanks for commenting on my Not me Monday. Glad to know I'm not a complete loser for crying during 7th Heaven.

Buzzings of a Queen Bee! said...

What fun! I love your little three-opening frames, and I really love that you spent the weekend reading about vampires! I most certainly do NOT have all four of those books sitting on my shelf right now. Nor have I read them all twice. I haven't.

lklalli said...

OK...so you did not have a good weekend I see. And those frames are really not that cute:)

Kelsey said...

Those frames are the cutest thing ever! I love them.

You sound like one of those teachers that I always wanted, but never got. Those kids must think you are amazing!!! Seriously, Halloween decorations are the first thing that they get to see on a Monday morning!? That would make my morning so much more interesting.

Thanks for visiting the blog! Your's is so funny!

American in Norway said...

You are just so cute & funny... & those FRAMES.... Man, I am jonsing for a trip to Michaels or Hobby Lobby...

Try living in the land of NO Halloween decorations! (none except for the crazy American lady decorating her house again...) (Umm that would be me...)

Susie said...

What a need post! Living in denial...I love it:-) Hee, hee, hee.

angie said...

Great decorations and perfect No Me MOnday. I've just recently been seeing participants around and the posts are so much fun.

I love the NOT me post! So entertaining. Oh, the Twilight series. Don't even get me started...I finished the last book and I am devastated that I don't have another to read. hehe!

Liz said...

I love your decorations!! the EEK is super cute (so is the Rob Lowe!!)

BloomingAlmond said...

Great idea, really! Oh gosh I wanted to see the kids face when they saw the decors :D
You're such a nice teacher :)

Joy said...
