What Makes This Teacher Tick

Don't we all have things that make our days so much brighter?  I am often so interested to know what other people are "obsessed" with and what makes them "tick".  Here are my things:
1)  My children... lovingly referred to as M1 and M2.  20 months apart {um, I didn't plan on it being that way}
2)  Starbucks...  I go there every single morning for my iced grande mocha.  I sip on it until around 11...  cold drink in the mornings...  hot drinks @ night if I get to go on girlfriend coffee dates (currently loving that the pumpkin drinks are back!)

3)  My Erin Condren stuff...  I have a teacher planner and a year round notebook!  Love them both.  Hoping to do a giveaway for some of her stuff soon {stay tuned}

4)  Pens...  I'm OCD about pens.  They need to be super fine tipped...  Let's just say OCD doesn't quite cover it! 
5)  Washi tape... to put in my planner, to make tabs in my notebook, to tape random things (like my iPhone car charger) back together!  There are whole Pinterest boards dedicated to washi tape... because it's amazing!  {I know you're going to Pinterest now to search for it}
6) Co-workers who become life-long friends. 

7)  90s rap.  Just picture it...  yes, if you play it... I probably know the words... and yes, I will sing along :)
8) Fripp Island, SC... my favorite place on this planet.  I go with girlfriends every summer... we take our children and babysitters.  Private island where everyone travels by golf cart.... It's a wild-life refuge and is totally awesome!  I've been able to hold sea turtle eggs, feed deer, and watch alligators get sun-tans!  I tutor after school, teach summer school, and save money all year in anticipation of those trips!!!

What makes you tick?  What are your favorite things?

    1. Jen, It is my most favorite place on this planet. I have been going since my kids were tiny! This picture is of my (the middle 2) kids and Tara's kids (the outer 2) from July of this year! We're already planning our trip for next summer! :)

  2. Your fav things are pretty much perfect. Starbucks, yum. Pens, absolutely. Planners, definitely. Beach? YES PLEASE. Love that beach picture!
