Holy Pink Paperclips and Currently

It doesn't take much to make me happy.  It's really all about the simple things in life. Yesterday was a lucky day! I walked into the teachers lounge to fill up my water bottle grab Dt. Dew #2 from the fridge...and there they were...thousands of PINK PAPERCLIPS!
Yep - the sign says FREE!

Holy pink paperclips!!!!  The smooth kind that are coated and they are the BIG ones!!!!   Instead of finishing my report cards, completing student files or searching for the library books that I "owe" in my room, there I was jumping up and down taking pictures of pink paperclips (and filling a bag to take to room 23).  I guess they were donated by a local company.  Oh happy day!

And...I'm linking up again with Farley from Oh Boy, Fourth Grade to share what is going on Currently.  Head over to read about what everyone is up to currently and to check out her new blog design!



  1. Fun paper clips! I want some!
    Have fun at the picnics!

  2. Shut up!!! Take an extra handful and ship them over to me ;) they will be superdy cute if you use them to hang student work on your bulletin boards!!

  3. Jealous! Love the big ones, for one and the fact that they are pink, for two!!


  4. Is it wrong that I would have taken ALL of the pink paper clips???

    I also have a golendoodle!! His name is Butters! He is the cutest dog ever (in my totally biased opinion!) He also barks at things outside, especially when dogs and people walk by the house on the public sidewalk. Apparently he thinks he owns the sidewalk. He also loves to watch tv. He will sit in his chair for hours and watch the tv. His ears will perk up sometimes and you can see his eyes moving back and forth following the action. It's so cute!

    Love your blog! I hope you'll check out my new blog!!
