And Currently...

I am so excited to link up with Farley from Oh' Boy Fourth Grade and share my "Currently" for the month of September! I was so busy last month that I completely forgot (eek!), but I am back on track and ready to share this time! Here we go!

Let me explain a few of these!


Currently, I am sitting in my living room listening to tv, no music, no students, no husband (he is golfing...instant babysitter), nada and it is fabulous! All I hear is the hum drum of the fan and I couldn't be more content!


I am loving this day off from school! Labor Day rocks! However, it is kind of tricky when you return to the classroom because the little ones get a bit out of their routine. They just got started and then get a long can be a little confusing, but I'll take that confusion for an extra day to prepare for the week!


Am I the only person who has to "be in the mood" to go to the grocery store? I hate it on Sunday (or Monday in this case) when you realize you have nothing to pack in your lunch. And the grocery store just seems so. far. away! The ONLY thing forcing me to go is the fact that I am all out of my "go to" breakfast item. I need my Greek yogurt about as bad and I need my planning period, so I am sure I will be heading to Publix sometime this afternoon! Maybe I'll get the "tweethearts" a little treat? Maybe.


Ok. I live in Charleston, South Carolina, and to be completely honest with you, I am sick and tired of this heat and humidity. I am fair skinned and freckled (aka pasty)and I get sunburnt during our 20 minute recess! Fall is my ultimate favorite season! I love football, the smells, pumpkins, Halloween, and especially the weather! Fall is so pretty around here and once the temperature drops into the 70s, I am a happy girl! I am ready for it! If only it stayed that way all year...


It has been a while since I have made something crafty for my house. I have been so busy with the start of school and classroom crafts that I haven't had time to make anything. So, I plan today to get my craft on. I am thinking a new fall wreath for my front door? At least that is the plan! 

  My Three Goals

1.) Exercise- I haven't exercised all summer. My muscles have seemed to congealed into nothingness (not that there was very much to start with!)With the start of school and other things life throws at you, I need to exercise in some way to de-stress. I am a constant worrier and I feel as though this only makes me MORE stressed! I use to do Zumba on a daily basis and loved it, but since my family moved to a new town, it is too far of a drive to go to my normal Zumba class. There is, however, a YMCA right around the corner and I am interested in possibly signing up and taking Zumba through them...or maybe I'll try yoga. My flexibility is not too stellar, but hey, it's worth a shot!

2.) Stay patient- I have so much patience for my little kindergarteners, so this doesn't really apply to them. They make me happy, but I seem to start losing patience with other grown ups these days! I guess sometimes I have to remember that adults behave like children from time to time...and everyone deserves a second chance.

3.) Be thankful--Sometimes I get so caught up in the "what I need to do" or "what I don't have" that I forget all of the blessings that I do have! I have so much to be thankful for and I don't want to lose sight of that!

Alright everyone! Now it's your turn to head over to Farley's, Oh Boy Fourth Grade, link up and share what you are doing currently! We all like to be what have you been up to? 

Enjoy these last few hours of Labor Day Weekend!,


  1. I cannot wait for the fall either! It is my favorite time of the year!! I cannot wait to pull on the sweaters and boots!!


    1. I've already started stocking up on sweaters and boots! I got them when they went on clearance and I can't WAIT to pull them out! Unfortunately for me it won't start getting that cool until mid-November! I can't wait!

  2. I can't stand the grocery store. I never go. My husband doesn't mind going or we'd only ever eat pizza :)


    1. I know! I hate it, too! My husband hates it TOO! We eat a lot of pizza! The only place I can somewhat tolerate is Target..... :)

  3. I love fall too! We just had our first football game at the high school I teach at...I got burned for sure :/ It was 97* and that is super hot for San Diego, not used to it! Love your blog!

    Tales of Teaching in Heels

    1. WOW! That is super hot! We are still in the 90s here in Charleston, SC about every day. It will probably be like that until October or after! It is just so dang hot! I am sick of it, too! Thanks for your sweet comment!

  4. Ahhh yes to's so underrated!


  5. I want to make a wreath for my place too! I love all things crafty! :) Glad I found your blog through Farley!!! :)

    Sailing into Second

    1. Thanks girl! I plan on putting some pics of it on here tomorrow! I had a great time making it! My first time with it was interesting! But therapeutic! Thanks for your sweet comment!

  6. I loved having an extra day too! I enjoyed reading your currently! Thanks for sharing.
