July Currently

I'm so excited to link up with Farley at Oh Boy Fourth Grade for the very first time!

Here goes July Currently:

Listening - I'm watching The Haves and the Haves Not. It's seriously the only show I make a point to watch each week. It's just the best. show. ever. There's so many plot twists you just never know what's going to happen! I'm catching up on the last two episodes since I was on my cruise...which was 7 days in paradise I might add. :)

Loving - I started my Advocare 24 Day Challenge on Tuesday, July 1st and as of today I've lost 5 lbs! Did you hear me?! 5 lbs in 4 days! I'm so excited! Going on two cruises in the past two months made me gain 10 pounds! If you've never experienced a cruise before the food is unlimited! Pizza, lobster, ice cream...oh my! Anyway, I'm excited to see my results after the last 18 days of the challenge! I was so excited after the first day of the challenge, I decided to become an Advocare distributor! If you're interested in trimming down before the school year and having more energy, please visit my website by CLICKING HERE.

Thinking - I just have 28 days of summer left! Not even an entire 28 days. I have to want to go in 2 weeks early to get my classroom ready!

Here's how my August schedule looks:

1st week - Reading Training, 5 days
2nd week - New to District Teacher Training, 4.5 days
3rd week - PD/In-service for all teachers, 5 days
August 25 - School Starts

Now you see why I have to go in 2 weeks from now. I have virtually no time in August to do anything in my classroom, with the exception of a half day during the second week.

Needing - I really need some ELA materials! My favorite local teacher supply is having their annual summer blowout on July 12. They are offering 25% off everything and all kinds of freebies like desk calendars, tote bags filled with goodies, FOOD (which I don't need)! Lol. I'm patiently waiting for this day!

4th Plans - Nothing special. Same old, same old. When you live in Texas there's BBQ for every occasion, even Christmas. Okay, maybe not Christmas, but we Texans love our BBQ! When I say "we" I mean "them" because I don't like BBQ and I hardly ever eat any. Lol.


  1. I love your new blog! Exciting changes happening for you! Good luck!

    1. Thank you Stacia! I'm following your blog too! Love the ice cream theme!

  2. So awesome to see you in the bloggy world!! Can't wait to read all your adventures now you're in middle school!! Such a huge change.
    PS - We TOTALLY eat BBQ on Christmas day here in New Zealand.
    Learning to be awesome

  3. Hi dear! Found your blog through Instagram, I'm your neighbor to the north! Although we aren't fond of Texans here, I did follow your blog, ;) It looks great!


  4. Congrats on making a blog. I love your Instagram, so I'm sure I'll love the blog as well.

  5. I'm in the area also! What is the teacher supply store that is your favorite?

    1. Awesome! When I taught elementary my favorite store was The Teaching Cottage at FM 518/Gulf Freeway by the old Academy. now that I teach junior high I find that Mardel in Webster has a lot more to offer!

    2. Let me favorite store I was talking about in this blog post is The Teaching Cottage. I quickly realized that they don't have much for middle school or high school, so Mardel became my new favorite. Lol

  6. I haven't even thought to look at Mardel! And of course tomorrow is Sunday! Thanks for the info!
