*Happy New Year!!!!!*

2014 = New Beginnings

Wow! I am stunned that 2013 is OVER! But, I must say, I am glad it is over! It wasn't my best or most memorable year and I'm happy that it is time for a new beginning! So, like so many of you have done, I have come up with a list of some, They aren't the most exciting, but they are on my list.

Drumroll please.....

1.) The obvious--get healthy. Wow, hasn't this been my resolution for, oh, the past 15 years? So, let's skim over that and go to number two---

2.) Stop cursing--as it turns out, this kindergarten teacher has quite the filthy mouth. It isn't one of my best qualities and honestly, I am surprised that in my six years of teaching I haven' let something slip in front of my kids. Thank God I haven't! 

3.) Go to church--this is a sad resolution, and one that I am kind of ashamed to admit, but I haven't been to church in....well, we will just leave that part out. I need to go. I need to give thanks for many, many things.
4.) Update my blog more often--I am not too good at this! I love my blog, I love updating it, but this thing called *LIFE* happens and honestly, sometimes I like sitting on the couch and zoning out to Netflix movies after a long day of teaching five year olds.

And this brings me to the rest of my blog post today: CURRENTLY! I am excited to post my January currently and link up with Farley over at Oh'Boy Fourth Grade! And in true Natalie fashion, I am a day late with it! goes!

  1. Hi Natalie - I found your blog through Farley's Currently. I love the polka dots! I know how hard it is to keep up with blogging. I started my blog a few months ago and it has been so hard to find time to post, but I love it! Your blog seems so cheerful and bright. Happy New Year! ~ Lisa

  2. I too don't know where the rest of winter break went...I wanted to put that in both my need and want section. AKA, for it to slow down or not end. I found you through Farley's Currently right after me. :-)

  3. Found you through Farley, too. I have a Pandora bracelet as well. I love it. The best thing is that each and every charm has meaning to me (either about an event or a person) and I can literally look down at my wrist and give thanks for all the good in my life. I never take it off - unless I am at the massage therapist! Happy New Year!
