Currently {May 2015}

Better late than never, right? While I have a few minutes here is my Currently for May 2015! LISTENING: Sarah is down for her nap right now so I'm listening to the PEACE & QUIET! LOVING: I'm loving my new Thirty-One All-In Tote! I was able to pre-order this bag and can't wait to use it this weekend for an overnight trip. This bag will be the customer and hostess special during the month of June! Check out my website or VIP Customer Group for more info! THINKING: I'm thinking that I am SO excited for our beach trip! We are staying at The Beach Club in July and I don't think I can wait that long... I'm ready to go NOW! WANTING: I am wanting something sour... sour patch kids, sour straws, whatever! I've had this craving all week! NEEDING: I'm needing to work on … [Read more...]

December Currently! {2014}

LISTENING: I'm listening to Sarah's favorite TV show... Sid the Science Kid! LOVING: I love watching Sarah learn and grow each day. She will be 18 months old this Wednesday! This past month she has learned lots of new words, knows how to throw trash away in the kitchen, invented a few more dance moves, gives kisses, and has become obsessed with stickers! THINKING: I cannot stop thinking about how excited I am about the Polka Dot Parlor new site launch! I began working with Staci from Quirky-Bird about a year ago on updating my website. I always wanted to build my brand from the ground up with a custom web design and Staci has done a phenomenal job! We are getting close to the finish line and I am hoping to go live with lots of new products by January 1st! WANTING: I am wanting … [Read more...]

August Currently! {2014}

I'm so excited about my new blog design! I've been working on it all week. I've decided that I just can't manage two blogs anymore so I'm combining my teaching and personal blog into one. I hope this will bring a bit more variety to my blog as I include posts related to teaching, as well as my family and personal interests. Watching the War Eagle/Roll Tide special on ESPN2 this morning really made me excited for football season. I can't wait to see Sarah in her new cheerleader uniform! Only 3 more weeks... WAR EAGLE! I've just finished reading Chris Powell's Choose More, Lose More for Life. He and his wife Heidi Powell are so inspiring to me and I'm hoping that by following their Carb Cycling plan I can lose my last 15 lbs (or more!) to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight. It has … [Read more...]

Currently {november 2013}

I'm linking up with Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade for November Currently! Listening... to College Game Day! This is my favorite time of year. I'm excited that we finally have some Fall weather. Cool weather and Auburn football makes for a great day! War Eagle! Loving... my sweet baby girl. I am so blessed to have the sweetest, most beautiful daughter. I can't believe this little pumpkin will be 5 months old tomorrow! Thinking... I'm excited to mentor National Board candidates. I've received a few requests through my blog for information about the National Board process. I'm attending a webinar later today and can't wait to learn more about Candidate Support from other NBCTs. I can't believe it's almost been a year since I certified as an Early … [Read more...]

September Currently and a Blog Award!

Wow! It has been SUCH a busy month! I've been working 12-14 hour days and I STILL cannot get everything done! One of these days, maybe I'll be caught up... I've been thinking that for 8 years though! We are going into our 5th week of school. My students are finally beginning to settle in to our daily routine and we are all able to find our way around our new school. The "little red doors" of old Mableton came down last week... so it feels like the old school is officially gone. We are loving our new school though and are SO looking forward to finally having a parking lot! I'll be back to post some pictures from our first few weeks of school and I've also got some freebies planned! In the meantime, here's one last look at our sweet, little, school... I'd like to thank Stacey … [Read more...]

Currently & Some Shopping!

I've been wanting so badly to shop for my new classroom! It has been so hard not to buy things since I don't even know what my classroom looks like. Our staff is moving into a brand new building at the end of the month... and we have no idea what to expect! We've been watching it being built for a year and a half and we've only seen the outside! I did buy a few things for my classroom (and myself!) that I just couldn't pass up... I just got my new phone case in the mail today! In addition to teaching, I also have a web store - Polka Dot Parlor. I ordered this phone case for myself in hot pink zig-zag with a solid navy circle. I LOVE how it turned out! I have always wanted a rocking chair for my classroom. I came upon this one in an antique shop in Auburn. It was already painted and … [Read more...]
