Teacher’s aides at the school where I teach used to be able to wear nursing scrubs to school.  Some of them might have to change diapers, feed students, etc., and it made sense to wear them.  Scrubs can be found everywhere from online at such places as plus size scrubs for women and even at grocery stores.  I’ve seen them a lot of different places.  The great thing about scrubs is that they are inexpensive, comfortable, and come in a large variety of prints.


It’s almost time to start thinking about back-to-school shopping.  Not only will parents be shopping for school clothes for their school-age children, but teachers will be looking for professional clothing to wear to school as well.  There should be a lot of good sales going on for clothing and shoes, and there might be a jewelry deal of the day to accessorize new outfits.  I imagine there will be a lot of people shopping the sales for whatever their clothing need might be.

Gold Jewelry

I’ve been hearing on the radio about this place that will buy gold jewelry, even broken jewelry such as earrings, for the gold content.   If someone had a 10k gold chain that they wore a lot or even just occasionally, they wouldn’t be interested in a place like this.  But for someone who had broken earrings or maybe lost one earring in a pair, they might want to make some extra money by selling jewelry they never wear anymore.  Plus, it would be a good way to clean out their jewelry box.

Creams and Moisturizers

Sometimes my skin gets so dry from the summer heat, especially my feet when I wear flip flops a lot .  Maybe I need something like seaweed cream to really moisturize my skin with some nourishing ingredients.  I look for things like Shea Butter and Aloe Vera in lotions and moisturizers a lot of times when I’m buying something to combat dry skin.  Anything that will help battle the effects of this Texas heat!

Spring Break

It’s so nice that Spring Break is finally here.  I’ve been getting caught up on a few things that I don’t have much time to do during the school year plus getting in some extra rest, which is something else that isn’t always possible some weeks during school.  I don’t have any shopping scheduled for this week since I don’t need any clothes, shoes, or carhartt jeans, etc.  One really nice thing is that our son is home from college for a week.  That makes Spring Break fun!

Creative Jewelry Maker

There are a lot of people making jewelry these days.  A dear friend of mine makes beautiful jewelry using beads and has had quite an extensive selection of beads to choose from.  I’m not sure what she has now, whether she has any clear glass tiles or any other type of beads, etc., but I do know that I am enjoying wearing the pieces of jewelry in my collection that were made by her.  She’s very creative in her jewelry making and in any artistic project she undertakes.  In fact, she used to be an elementary art teacher so you can imagine how creative she must be.
