Currently 2015 (almost)

Goodness, I can't believe it is the year 2015 - That is the year they go to in back to the future - eek!!
I am linking up with Farley for the first Currently of 2015!
Listening: 2 kids under 8 stuck in a house for 2 weeks, enough said

Loving: Santa bought me a fitbit and I have big plans to get moving!

Thinking: I have many goals, personal, professional, blogging etc... but I am also trying to think small and focused so that I can actually acomplish those goals :)

Wanting: Yes, we found a dead, stinky possum in our attic tonight but we can't get to it. So we have to wait until???? the rodent places open up and I can't even imagine what it will smell like by then. OMG. so.grossed.out.

Needing: I need to be realistic. It is too easy for me to say, "i'm going to lose 60 pounds this year" but then not think of the "how"

Yes: I will get healthy this year and be a good model for my kids

Maybe: I really want to be a better blogger (I couldn't get any worse) and with that I want to out the things I create on TpT. I have a really bad habit of creating things for my classroom when I need them and then never posting them for some reason...

A Wish: I would LOVE to go on debt diet too and get out of debt. 

What are your plans for 2015??

Currently September?

Linking up with Farley again this month for Currently. September? What?? Where did my summer go?

Listening.. I snuck away from a fun pool party / picnic to get out of the heat for a minute

Loving... I have a student teacher and she is awesome. She jumped right in on day 1 and it is so amazing to have extra hands, eyes, and ears the first week of school!!

Thinking... My mom passed away from cancer this past April and I think about my dad all the time. They were married for 44 years and on days like today (holidays) I worry about him being alone. I hope he can move down to Texas soon..

Wanting... We moved out of our house this Friday but can't move into a next one until this coming Saturday. I am dreading the whole unpacking thing. ugh.

Needing... We love our new house. It is in a great neighborhood and has an amazing pool (swoon) but it is older and needs some work. I am the kind of person who wants everything to be done RIGHT NOW... so I am going to need to channel my inner zen and be okay with very slow progress.

3 trips.... I have always wanted to see every.single.inch of Italy and who wouldn't want to go to Greece and Hawaii?

Enjoy your week!!

Monday Made It : Pinspired

Hi friends. It has been FOR*EV*ER (I just channeled my inner Sandlot voice). I have lots of reasons I haven't blogged in about a year but I'll save those for another post. Today, I'll start simple and link up with 4th Grade Frolics with a Monday Made It post!!
Click here to check out the other Made It ideas

The hubs and I are getting ready to sell our house and we have been working REALLY hard to get the house ready. I am not a decorator - it stresses me out when I walk into stores with decor... I want everything but I don't know where it should go, what it matches, etc... So, our house was pretty bare and I wanted to add some small touches to make it feel warm and inviting.

First up, a 5 minute pinspired table runner. Literally, walked into Hobby Lobby, bought the two widths of burlap ribbon, laid it on the table and cut to fit. A simple $10 project that makes a nice impact when you enter our home!

Secondly, a pinspired wreath for the front door. I bought 2 green flowers, one cream rose and a wooden initial. It took me all of 10 minutes to add the flowers with floral wire and glue on the letter!

There you have it, Monday made-it pinspired edition. Hopefully I can get my groove back and make some classroom stuff too.
