Vote for Casey

Casey is running for Student Council. We worked on his speech tonight. I'm very proud of him. He came up with most of it!! Do you think I could cast my very non bi-partisan vote?

Hi. My name is Casey and I am 10 years old. I have 3 brothers and 1 sister. My sister, Chloe, is in the 2nd grade here at (insert Elementary school).

I like to ride my bike, play in the dirt, play with my friends and play my Irish Penny Flute. There is also something I bet none of you know about me. I am an Irish Dancer. I have competed in lots of competitions and earned lots of medals and trophies. 

My family and I moved to (insert city name) 2 months ago. It was hard to leave my old friends and school, but you have all made me feel more comfortable. I really like (insert elementary school) because everyone is very nice and the school is very clean. I am glad they put me in Mrs. C's class. This is the BEST class in the whole 5th grade!!

I hope that you vote for me, Casey, to be in the Student Council. If I win, I promise to do an Irish Jig for the class. 


Thank You!!

I want! I want! I want!

This is the most amazing Daily System available.

And the cost is pretty high, too! 

For just the 3 pieces I want in black wood (including the metal hanging bar), it would cost me about $180 with shipping*. That is plain ridiculious. I couldn't imagine spending that much, but oh how I want it. 

I've been to at least 10 different stores hoping to find something that would hold mail, keys and look nice on the wall. I haven't been able to find anything. It has to be wood and have a couple compartments. Here is a basic idea that I found on Just Organize Your Stuff (JOYS), but then when I emailed her and asked where she got it (a seasonal item from Sam's Club)she just HAD to send me a link to the one she "someday" hoped to get. That, my friends, would be the Pottery Barn Daily System mentioned above. 


Now I shall forever be in search of something comparable to either one....

Just keep searching....Just keep searching....

*$180 would be the SALE price...not the original price. DOUBLE SIGH
