September Currently

I can't believe that it is already time to do the September Currently with Farley over at Oh' Boy 4th Grade! I always enjoy these because it really causes me to sit down and reflect and think forward into the next month because it always makes me realize how quickly the next month has come. So, here it goes...

Listening: My BFF, Jena Hudson at Sew Much Music, is over spending the better part of the day with me, and our choice of music to play while working on TPT products and things for our classroom is always The Best of the 90's. Spice Girls, Backstreet Boys, Hanson, & N'SYNC really get the creative juices going. 

Loving: I know that I am in good company when I say that I am a fall fanatic, and I am seriously so ecstatic that it is not too far away anymore. I honestly think that fall is the only reason I didn't go into deep depression when summer break came to an end. I love pumpkin scented everything, and very little makes me happier than seeing it back out on the shelves right now. I'm looking forward to hoodies, bonfires, cool air, colorful leaves, and all the various fall festivals; more specifically, I am looking forward to my city's Oktoberfest the first weekend of October. I'm sure I'll have something in my October Currently all about my excitement for that. Alex and I will also be having our engagement pictures taken this fall, so I am really looking forward to that. 

Thinking: I wish I had one more day to get stuff done before the work week. I realize that I already had one extra day to get things completed this weekend because it was a holiday, but let me tell ya... holiday weekends are so much busier for me. We end up spending more time out running around, more time with family, more time for friends, and more time for relaxation. It isn't until the night before going back to work that I realize I had big plans for getting stuff accomplished, and very little of it happened. I am preparing to start sending home our high frequency words on flash cards, and I have sixteen sets of weeks 1-4 words that I need to get cut out and put into baggies so they can get in binders tomorrow to go home, but am I actually working on that or the 5,679 other things I need to be doing? Nope. I am doing this blog post. Priorities, people! ;) 

Wanting: food and caffeine. I have yet to have either of these mandatory things today, but I am looking forward to Pizza Hut and a Dr. Pepper for lunch. Mine and Jena's go to meal on our days together.

Needing: to cut out lamination. Like I said before, I have so many things to do and I have probably five pounds of lamination in the backseat of my car that needs to be cut out. I will be driving my fiancĂ© and puppy crazy later this evening with cutting it out, and we will all be finding and picking up pieces of lamination out of the carpet for a week, I am sure. 

3 Trips: Hawaii- I have always wanted to go to Hawaii. I love going to tropical places to vacation and relax, and Hawaii has always seemed to be the epitome of that. 
Australia- Birthplace of Keith Urban, home of koala bears, and beautiful scenery. No need to explain this any further.
London- I love traveling abroad, and although I have been to Europe, England wasn't one of our stops. I would love to go and walk around in a foreign country where I can understand other people, and where they can understand me. That would be another reason for Australia as well. 

I hope everyone has a great September! 


  1. I want to go to Hawaii also. I am jealous that you actually know Jena Hudson. I found her blog this summer, and became an instant fan. Have a fabulous day!

  2. I grew up in the 90's so of course 90's music would be my choice, too! No Doubt? Savage Garden? Celine Dion, anyone? :)

    Loved finding your post on Currently! :)

  3. You had me at "Food and Caffeine...Typical I know!" Clearly we would get along! I am totally with you on the whole fall thing. For me you would have to add in college football too! It makes me happy!

  4. You will love London. It's one of my favorite cities. So much history.

    Last time I was in London I tried to visit St. Paul's but it was closed due to filming National Treasurer 2. I'm hoping next time I can actually get in! :)

    I have to say that Octoberfest is one of the reasons I love October as well. I just wish it was followed by summer again instead of winter.

    Good luck with all your laminating.
