Brooklyn Nets Open Practice - Great Opportunity for Students

The Brooklyn Nets held an open practice for all of their fans on Sunday, October 26th. Players signed autographs and mingled with fans.  Following the game students got the opportunity to participate in breaking a Guinness World Record for the "Largest Game of Basketball Knockout."  This was an absolutely awesome  experience for students that I highly recommend.  Check out the link to watch the students in action.

October Currently

Seriously, where does the time go?  I can't believe it's October already.  I adore Farley's currently link ups each month. This is what I've been up to lately... 

LISTENING:  Jazz is one of my favorite types of music.   The majority of the time I listen to Watercolors on  XM radio.  Diana Krall has an awesome cover of Walk on By.  You can check it out on YouTube.
LOVING:  I used Rafflecopter for my very first  giveaway.  I watched a brief tutorial, got a little advice from my blogging mentor (THANKS MEGAN!), and voila 5 days later I have a WINNER!  I will definitely use this service again.
THINKING:   I love looking at the foliage this time of year and collecting leaves for crafts.  There are a number of adorable leaf animal crafts that I have on my Pinterest Craftivity Fun board that I plan on trying out over the next few weeks.
WANTING:  I saw the perfect pair of black Oxfords and I’m headed out to Macy’s to pick them up today.
NEEDING:  The weekend just goes by SO quickly.  One extra day makes such a huge difference.  I’m eagerly awaiting Columbus Day.

TRICK or TREAT:  Visit my TpT store to get my DAYS of the Week and Months of the Year Labels for FREE this month only.  HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
