February Already?!

HOLY cannoli! Where did the month of January go??

I feel like the last five months have FLOWN by and I'm kind of actually sad about it… because that means my kiddos will be moving to 4th grade soon! And if y'all don't know… my first year started with the absolute BEST class possible. They are great kiddos - very bright, fun, and each have their own personalities that I love to death.

Regardless… it's now February!! Here's to another great month at home and at school :)

I'm linking up as usual with Ms. Farley from Oh Boy 4th Grade for her Currently linky!
Listening - I'm watching a movie I loooove on ABC Family - Holes! And listening to my puppies play tug in the kitchen. I'm so happy they get along so well… sometimes they don't but most of the time they do!

Loving - being in the South, I would not expect snow days. BUT we got that horrible ice storm and it paralyzed our city. We don't have the means down here to be able to "dig ourselves out" - no salt, no beet juice, nothing. So, when it hit, there wasn't much we could do about it but stay home and not venture out. Those that did realized how dangerous the ice was and turned right back around to go home. But we were given 3 snow days and MAN I couldn't have been more excited - nothing reminds me of home like snow days! :)

Thinking - we're going to a Mardi Gras Ball for the Coast Guard on the 21st and I FINALLY got my dress yesterday!! It's yellow and has jewels all throughout the upper bodice and on the straps. It's absolutely beautiful and will match Cody's uniform like no other! I'm SO excited.

Wanting - again, being in the South, we are SO not used to these freezing temps. We had lower 20s and upper teens throughout the week, yet this weekend, we're going to reach the 70s! I am SO excited because this is my favorite weather and I would love to stay in the 70s year round.

Needing - I have SO many different units started full of activities I've done in my own classroom… I just need to fine tune them and put them together… but I'm so lazy and when it comes to time after work, all I want to do is sleep! I just need to sit down and do it!!

2 Truths & a Fib - One of these is a fib and if y'all know me, y'all know which one it is! Read below to find out.

-My fav movie is The Lucky One - TRUTH! This is one of my favorite movies because it so hits home with me. I love the storyline and the fact that it deals with the military, it gets me every time. Love me some Zac Efron, too! Yummy!

-I strongly dislike elephants - FIB! If y'all know me, y'all know I absolutely LOVE elephants. If I could, I'd have an elephant living in my backyard. I've always dreamed of living on huge farm land where I could have my own elephant - while this dream would probably never come true, I imagine that the elephant would be BFFs with my puppy like Bubbles and Bella or Tarra and Bella.

-When I was little, I wanted to be a dentist - TRUTH! I loved the thought of being a "scientist" (I thought because it dealt with science that it was considered being a scientist) and being able to help people smile. I loved that my dentist was sooo friendly to me and it made an impression. But then, one day I went to shadow my dentist and man, I hated it. It was so much grossness and I honestly sucked at science. SO, that's when I decided to be an interior designer which turned into a teacher - my true calling :)
SO, what are you currently into? Link up over at Farley's blog & share it with the world! :)


  1. Warm weather would be wonderful!! I'm so tired of this cold. Unfortunately I think I still might get some more on Tuesday and Wednesday:( I sure hope not.
    Congrats on finding the perfect dress!!

  2. I'm a military wife as well and love to buy those beautiful ball dresses! Your dress sounds absolutely beautiful!

    I'm in Virginia and we had three snow days this week too. We haven't been in since Tuesday. We are going to have to make up the days at some point, but I will enjoy the time while I can!

    Have you read the book Home Front by Kristin Hannah? I'm reading it now and it's a tear-jerker because it hits close to home, but her writing is just amazing!

    Love your blog! The design is one of the cutest I've ever seen! I'm your newest follower!

  3. I'm glad your elephant one was a fib - I love elephants too! :) I'm in the south as well and just had some snow days, gotta love snow in the south, we're crazy!
    I also love the Lucky One and pretty much any Nicholas Sparks movie. They are the best!

  4. I absolutely adore elephants too!! They're just so amazing. My husband once adopted an "elephant family" from Africa for me one holiday :)

    I definitely miss the warm weather of the South and am jealous of your warmth! Enjoy it

  5. First year classes are always so special. I still remember mine as if it was yesterday. Enjoy them while you have them. Passing them on is not easy. I cried like a big baby that last day of school. I am still embarrassed ;)

  6. I actually like The Lucky One too. I wasn't sure Zac Efron could do it for me as a sexy leading man, but holy, was I wrong!

    enjoyed your currently!

  7. Where are you originally from? I am from MA but live in Texas, and like you said, was so happy to remember what a snow day felt like! We had two in the past couple of weeks. I saw on the news how surprised everyone was in Alabama, Georgia, etc. Kids even sleeping in schools!

  8. So jealous of your warm weather (now) and Mardi Gras ball! That's one thing I miss now that I'm away from the area. You've got to get some King Cake if you haven't already! Glad you were able to enjoy some snow days!
