Lunch Linky and the Cookie Cake Crook

It's almost midnight!
I promise if Truman has to go out, I will come back:)
Got a lot for you tonight-


I went to our local mailing place- I don't know what to call it- it is not the "post office", but you mail stuff.

I mailed Tracy in Indiana her box of file folders and Teacher's Helpers. SEVENTEEN pounds!
I thought for sure it was going to cost a Ka-zillion (its a number) dollars to mail it.

I was waiting for the total.

But we were talking while she was ringing, writing, measuring, and all that other stuff  you do before you mail out something- and I was telling her about the Linky and Kreative in Kinder and Teachers Taking Care of Teachers thingy.

So she says, 'Ok, we're going to do this one at cost. " $15.00. That's it! $15.00! You can't get an avocado for less than a dollar a pound!!!
I couldn't believe it, neither could my wallet- because it was supposed to be $54!!!! She was awesome!
It is a local store, otherwise I would have all of their pictures and info on here to send them all the business I could.....

she made my heart very happy today!

Then we trekked over to my mom's office to see her for awhile.
She takes her pup to work with her. Squirrel-Friends meet Bella. Bella meet Squirrel Friends.

She is only 4 months old and is wired for sound!!!

Then it was on to the bakery at Publix.
I don't know if you have a Publix or have ever been to one- but there is a wonderful phenomenon going on there.

Are you ready?

Angels work in the bakery. Really. Angels.

Need proof?


Here it is....

That's how I know. Because I had one (maybe two) slices of H.E.A.V.E.N today!
Boston Cookies and creme cake.
Before you say "Gosh, Squirrels, eat the whole cake why don't ya!!"
Remember that there are 5, count them FIVE people in this family....and while you are counting them, I will go get another piece of cake....hee...hee

Then we went to get yarn.

My youngest son wants me to make a coffee cozy for his teacher. So he picked out these colors today...based on a bag she carries...

That really dark one is Coffee.  I think it will go nicely together....will play around with it tomorrow....

Holly from Crisscross Applesauce suggested I put some in my next giveaway...


....getting close to 250!

(when I typed it the first time, I typed "Crisscross in Applesauce" .....gave me a funny picture in my head....)

Sorry I got sidetracked again- where was I?

OH! And now I am putting Tara's Linky Party  from 4th Grade Frolics  here....Very cute should link up if you haven't...AND there's a Giveaway!!!

This is my pretty lunchbox that a student gave me last year:
 (Say it fast three times.......did ya hear it?)


Here's my lunch:

Hello -o-o-o-! Is there anything in there? Just nod if you can see it.... (Pink Floyd reference for you youngsters)

I don't take  lunch. I don't buy a lunch.
I have peanut butter crackers that I keep in the desk for the boys sometimes when we have to stay. So sometimes I have a pack.
I ALWAYS get a $.75 20oz Dr Pepper though....without fail, everyday @ 11:05am.

Now you are thinking,
"Oh, Staci, that's not healthy!"
(I know.)

"It is better to eat a lot of little small meals instead of just one big one"
(I know.)

"Healthy snacks will give you more energy"

But alas, I still choose not to. Not because I am trying to lose weight-which I should- but because I am just not hungry during the day.

Now I eat like horse at dinner. Don't get near my plate- you might lose  a finger!

My schedule for lunch?

11:03-11:33. They eat it the cafe. It is Duty Free. We have a break room, I choose to stay in my room {too much drama}....I need that 30 mins for me.
We do have specials every day for 55 mins, but it is later in the day. And we have mandatory meetings on Tues and Thurs during that time....the more I do during lunch is less I do at home...

I plan to link up to the Classroom Library Party later today tomorrow! I have seen some fabulous reading areas!
And I have a new word that I read on Farley's blog earlier...Fancylicious.....I love it!
I will make it my goal to fit it into conversation as many times as I can tomorrow!!!
Have a great day today!


  1. Wow! There is no way I could go the whole day without eating lunch...which may explain some things now that I think about it

  2. Staci, Thanksk for linking up:) Love your lunch tote...empty or's super cute!!! I'm gonna need one for every outfit when this linky is done!! I like my quiet time too and agree...there is usually a lot of drama so I either go to my room, when I'm not running a million errands or eat with my team mates in my roomies room:)

  3. that's it!!! I've seen too many sad excuses for lunch...I'm gonna have to make and deliver everyone a nice well-balanced lunch everyday!!! :)

  4. Bella is sooo cute! And I love your bag, but I can't imagine not eating lunch every day, I would be biting kids' heads off!

  5. So much to say!
    1) I love that your post place did this at cost. Lovely!!!!
    2) I love that your son knows the colors of his teacher's bag.
    3) Bella is adorable. My grandpa had a dog that a looked a lot like her. Her name way Ty. And she was a girl.
    4) How are you not hungry during the day? Do you eat a big breakfast?
    5) I do not have specials.
    6) Sometimes, there is too much drama in our teacher's lounge, too. That's when I suddenly have things I need to do in my classroom.
    7) That's all. Oh, and I did say your name 3x fast and I heard it. Clearly.

    1. Nope- don't eat breakfast either. I have the huge thing of coffee- then the Dr Pepper. Maybe I am too wired to eat:)

  6. haha, I love that your son knows the color of his teachers bag!!! How thoughtful! And I'm looking forward to seeing how the coffee cozy turns out!! Just another reason I wish I liked to drink coffee. I love the smell, but can't drink it- bleck.


    1. WHAT?!?!?! You don't drink coffee??? Have you had that checked out by a Dr? :)

  7. I have the same lunch bag! However I do have to pack it or I get grumpy and tired!

    1. Seriously, I don't even think about it (unless it's my night to have "kitchen".

  8. I totally heard it!
    I loved your post.
    I love your post office.
    I love your dog.
    I am not a creeper.
    I love your coffee cozy and sent my SIL your URL and said I want one for Christmas.
    I love your son's teacher's colors.
    that's all the loving I can write.

    1. I love that you love so much:)
      The colors reminded me of your blog!

  9. I totally get Mrs. Squirrels now ;) And I have to eat *something* during the day, how do you do it?!
    A Cupcake for the Teacher

    1. I'm a Mrs. but they usually only get the Miss out- it can be a mouthful:) My son's friends call me that too- and they KNOW that's not our name:)

  10. Aww man, it makes me kinda sad you don't have a lunch! It also kind of makes me hang my head in shame because not only do I eat at lunch, but I also, as you put it, eat like a horse at dinner as well!

    I'm also going to answer the questions you asked on my lunch post:
    1. We got the pup some relaxing anti-anxiety dog pills. They didn't seem to work last night, so fingers crossed it will work...
    2. The pic of the hubby and me in my header was taken in the doorway of a house in Downtown Charleston.
    3. I guess I forgot I do drink coffee once a year on Black Friday. I drink a cafe mocha? or cafe latte? I'm not real sure! I would LOVE to like regular coffee and would love a conversion :)

    Living A Wonderful Life

  11. Why didn't I read this before? It's July - that was March. Oh well...I'm glad you to those cozies to Etsy. Have I told you before how many compliments I get whenever I use one {which is every single time!!!!! Which equals at least once a day...did you notice the "at least"? Cuz I sometimes utilize said cozy multiple times in ONE day}

    Hugs to you and all your wonderful talents!!!!!!
