I'm Currently...January 2016

Hello, 2016! :) Happy New Year, y'all!
I was talking to a fellow 2nd-year primary teacher family member at Christmas about how we cannot believe how fast this school year is flying by! I mean, it's January people! WOW! Only about 5 months left with my not-so-little, amazingly smart kinder babies! To start the month, you know you always see the super fun posts by Farley and I just had to join in on the fun! What a great way to start the new year! 

  • Listening: Along with the rest of this HGTV-loving world, I am (all CAPS) OBSESSED with Fixer Upper. So as I sit here and blog, I am continually distracted by Chip and JoJo's amazing talents! I think my jaw is on the ground the whole show and I am not even exaggerating. Mouth open for the whole 60 minutes. Come visit me in Indiana...PLEASE! 
  • Loving: I am loving Winter Break. I hear the whole you're only in your second year, you shouldn't need a break! Honey, we do. And it's not all about me. Of course I need a break to recharge and refocus, but so do my 5 & 6 year olds. 
It is such an amazing feeling knowing how excited I am to see them and their smiling faces on Tuesday! :) THAT, folks, is what a break can do for the teacher soul! 

  • Thinking: Now after just discussing how much a break is needed. It really was a break for me. I didn't go into school one time, which is a record for me. I haven't been to school at all this year! (see what I did there! haha) I have all my plans done and masters copied, but I just need to go in and get it all done! 
  • Wanting: One word (or is it three?) Chick-Fil-A. No one should ever do a wants blog post when you haven't eaten lunch. Also, one should never go without Chick-Fil-A as long as I have. I am definitely a sweet tea and grilled chicken kinda girl.
  • Needing: I need a fountain pop stat. I have an awful obsession with pop, but it's just so good. I am a loyal, one kind of pop girl. Coca-Cola for the win in my house! :) 
  • Hopeful: There are a lot of things I am very hopeful for this year. I was very blessed this past year and I am hopeful that I am blessed this year just as I was last year. 
Now it's your turn...Head on over to Farley's page to snag the blank image and read up on some pretty awesome currently posts! 


  1. I can't decide which I am craving more now, a Coke or a Chick-fil-A sweet tea! YUM!

    Enjoy your last few days of binge-watching HGTV. :)

    Happy new year!

  2. It is my first time stopping by your blog and I love it - so bright and colourful! I too am sitting blogging and thinking about lunch. Alas there is no fast food within miles of my house so it looks like I will be dragging myself to the kitchen to see what I can find.

    I hope that all the things you are "hopeful" for come to fruition! Happy New Year!

  3. Now I have Chick-Fil-A cravings and the nearest one is about 40 miles away! So glad you took the time to stay home and relax. You'll find you never get it all done anyway, so enjoy your HGTV shows and take time for yourself. Your students will benefit in the long run! Happy New Year.

  4. Your blog is just precious!! I'm so glad you took a break...even brand new teachers need a break! And you are so right...seeing their sweet faces when we go back is so refreshing!

  5. I have Chick-Fil-A cravings often too, but unfortunately the closest one to me is about 45 minutes away. I live in a super small town (only 3 traffic lights)! Happy New Year!

  6. Unfortunately I have to drive about 25 minutes for the nearest Chick-Fil-A! :( My town has 3 traffic lights, too! :)
