Currently August

Time to link up with Farley for Currently August!
Listening: To all my Dallas friends...Do you love Urban Taco as much as I do?  Can't beat free Wi-Fi and a delicious taco.
Loving: I LOVE going to the mall to shop for new outfits and ACTUALLY finding things that fit and look cute!  Such a happy feeling!  :)  These are my two favorite dresses I found  yesterday...One is for a baby shower on Saturday and the other is for my brother's wedding in a few weeks.

Thinking: My girlfriends and I are baking and decorating 100 sugar cookies tonight for the baby shower on Saturday.  Hope they are AWESOME!  
Wanting: I'm such a bag of emotions...I'm so lucky and blessed to be able to stay home with my sweet baby boy, but I'm also super sad I won't have a classroom of my own.  I plan to substitute and volunteer all year, but it won't be the same without a classroom of my own.  I'll up for helping decorate anyone's classroom that needs my helps in DFW.  :)  
Needing: Still need to lose that baby weight, LOL.  I'll be more motivated when the weather is cooler.  
B2S Must Haves: Sharpies make my heart beat a little quicker.  <3
Yes...I wear heels to school on most days so I'm always in need of a new, comfortable pair every year.  These are my absolute favorites...I can wear them ALL DAY and not hate myself...They are a little spendy but totally worth it!  
Teaching rules, routines, and procedures is THE MOST IMPORTANT thing about Back 2 School!  This is a sample of the PowerPoint I use in my classroom every year.  It comes in so handy the first few weeks and then again throughout the year as students need a review of my expectations.  It's completely editable too!  
That's all for now!  Must get home to my little man!  :)  


  1. Excellent choice for the new outfits! Enjoy your year with your little one!

  2. I love your new shoes! I was thinking of getting a new great skirt for the school year. I found one at Express that was lovely. I use that restroom sign in my class. It works the best because then you don't have students saying, "Can I go to the bathroom?" and then having ten students after that asking. Good luck with the new school year :)

  3. Your blog is adorable. Enjoy the year with your little cutie!

  4. What at cutie! I had to take another look at the Logo on the outfit. It looked my college colors. :-) Enjoy your time with your little one!

  5. Man, I wish I lived in the DFW area. I would totally take you up on the help :) I just found your blog on the Currently linky and it is super cute. I am your newest follower!

  7. Enjoy your little one! The time will fly by so quickly even though it might not feel like it at the time, but when you look back it will!

  8. What a cute little guy you have! :)

    I live in the DFW area, and you are MORE THAN WELCOME to come decorate my classroom! Actually, if you could just do my bulletin board, I'd love you forever. {I HATE doing bulletin boards. My school always does cutesy ones, and I can't ever think of anything "cute" enough. Did I mention it also has to be on theme with the district? Ugghhh.}

    Enjoy your time with your little one!
