Sleep Shopper/Teacher Appreciation Gift

Hi all!!! It's been a while but I'm finally adjusted to me new routine and back in business. So, you've heard of sleep walkers, sleep talkers, and sleep eaters... but what about sleep shoppers? Can this even be possible? I keep asking myself the same thing, because low and behold... I AM GUILTY OF SLEEP SHOPPING! I wake up in the morning to confirmation e-mails of my mysterious middle of the night purchases. The first time it happened was about 6 months ago when I bought a pair of leather steve madden boots online at 2:15 in the morning that were not at all my style... but were my size and everything.
I know this wasn't fraud because at this certain time I was shopping for boots but never found any I liked. So I ignored this little incidence and sent the boots back and was refunded. 2 months rolls around, and I get another confirmation e-mail of a flower headband that came with a free dream catcher??? Cute headband... but not so cute that I would of bought online.
Since that one was just a small purchase I went ahead and kept the heandband but chunked the dream catcher. That was 3 months ago and this past saturday morning I wake up to yet again ANOTHER confirmation e-mail that was at 4:07 in the morning. The funniest thing about this purchase... is they are LITTLE girls capri pants.
 Absolutley precious pants I must say, but they could fit a toddler. Since I purcheased them on Etsy though and didn't specify my size, in my sleep, to the lady I explained to her the next morning in an e-mail that I "didn't realize" they were little girls. HA... I was so not about to tell this lady this weird habit of mine. She wrote back this weekend, laughed and said... actually I would love to accomodate these to fit your size. So, I guess in a sense I started a new "women's line" for her. I am beyond thinking this is a problem now. I think I have decided to sleep with my phone on my dresser now and not under my pillow. Crazy, crazy, crazy.
Anyways, I'm back to work full time and a full time semester of school myself. Let's just say that my theme song for this school year is going to be "Just Breathe" by Anna Nalick. Looking forward to getting so much done though. Speaking of a new school year... One of my friends, Heather got a job at one of the elementary schools here in Ennis as a 2nd grade teacher. I wanted to do something for her for the first day of school and tried to come up with different ideas for weeks and finally came up with a Teacher survival kit
Thought this would be such an easy teacher appreciation gift idea also. I just bough a plastic container at Walmart, modpodged each side with scrapbook paper, and filled it inside with goodies.
 On each goodie I had a little note with a saying of how it could be used to survive the school year.

My bother and his fiance took their engagement pictures last weekend with the amazing Melissa Butler with Emby Photography.  Here is just a sneak peak...
She def. did it again... they are all SO perfect. Love this sweet couple :)
Brent and I take ours in October, I can't wait! Speaking of October... As I am sitting here updating, it is 87 degrees outside at 3:00 in the afternoon. I am beyond excited to feel that cool weather slowly sneaking in. This past weekend was a wonderful, long, and relaxing one. I always enjoy relaxing weekends of no plans.

So if you havent heard or experienced this awesome site... it's a must, you'll be hooked instantly!!!
It's basically like a big bulletin board that you can look at all kinds of pictures for ideas. Anywhere from creative food recipes, to home decor ideas, to fashion. And the best part of course, there's an iphone app for it... so it's VERY conveniently addictive. You have the option to sign up and start to following people, or just look without an account. Follow me here.

It's so addicting... I have to set a time limit for myself at night that I make myself put my phone down. But now it looks as though I won't be sleeping anywhere near my phone. :)
Have a wonderful week!!!
