February Shout Outs

I love February! 

I do so many fun activities with my students, and  I 

get to enjoy their "January Jump". 

This is that time of year when everything you have been 

saying for the last 4 months has finally "clicked". 

Their skills take a giant leap forward and

 learning/ teaching is really fun! 

I have a lot of fun teaching Chinese New Year with my "little loves".

It is a very fun yet rigorous learning adventure!

It is time already to shout out some love. This month has flown by!

The rules of this sweet linky are to shout out a blog with more

followers than you and a blog with less followers than you.

The blog with less followers than me is


This is a darling new blogger who tells you about life with the littles.

She has wonderful ideas and  is really “bringing it”

to get her kids ready for school. 

Today’s post is about PJ Day 

and a simultaneous visit from the Dept. of Health. 

yep... that's a footed Hello Kitty "onsie"

She is my kind of gal!

You have to visit and read her post.

She also did an amazing winter display…

This is a glimpse of the process. Let me tell you this about a tenth of

the gloriousness of the finished product!

It is awe inspiring!

I know what I am doing next year…..

While you are there, give her some “follower”

love if you are so inclined.

She is brand spankin’ new. Let’s welcome her to blogging!

My shout out for the blogger with more followers than me is

Blooming on Bainbridge

I adore this woman. I really do.

She cooks the most outrageous goodies.

You have seen her stuff all over Pinterest. 

You probably have an entire board dedicated to

“Things I want to make”

and 1/2 the stuff on your board is hers!

The best part is that she is a retired 1st grade teacher!!!!!!!


I mean look at that picture…. every picture is this good.

Right now, she is almost done with her 40 days of clean eating…

10 more to go would be my guess. I am learning about juicing.

soups, detoxing, and I am patiently waiting for her

to post on the “cookie” diet.

White Chocolate Cookies~ Blooming on Bainbridge


Since the cookie diet does not exists, I may have to wait longer than

expected.  I will just continue to believe that a happy heart burns

more calories and these cookies will make my heart happy.

How’s my logic?

Head on back to Lisa’s to link up with us

and shout out your two favorite blogs!

You can also link up in the post below about your

highs and lows for the month of January.
