August Already?

Wow! I knew July would go by fast, but not that fast! I'm linking up with Farley over at Oh' Boy 4th Grade for the August Currently.

Plus I have a sneak peak at my new classroom. It's 90% done! It's been a lot of work but I love my room, y'all! It makes me even more excited to get this school year started!

First up, here's the Currently


Listening: I love the sound of storms rolling in. I only get nervous if there is a lot of wind.
Loving: My husband is the best! I sent him out for clothespins, magnets and cardstock, and he came back with two out of the three plus a chocolate shake I didn't even have to ask for. After 12 years, he knows me so well! Maybe I wasn't so clear when I said clothes pins, because this is what he brought back
Haha! Oh well, the milkshake made up for the itty bitty clothespins. Maybe pinterest will have an idea for what I can do with them! (Speaking of pinterest, you can see my latest pinterest project in the background-I just need some magnets to finish it)

Thinking: I officially report back to school on Monday so tomorrow is my last day of summer. If the weather cooperates, I will be laid out by my moms pool while the kids splash and play. Hopefully my mind won't be full of thoughts of what I need to do before Open House Monday night or the first half day of school on Wednesday. I just want to relax in the sun with the kids! Plan B-Take my last nap of summer if the weather doesn't cooperate :)

Wanting: Seriously, Wal-Mart! No magnets?  And where is my heating pad!!!

Needing: Housekeeper that is willing to clean my house after it has been neglected for over a week. Must be able to sort, wash and fold laundry for five people without laundry backing up for little no pay. Anyone interested, please email me! Thanks!

B2S: I love my dress that I bought for back to school so I must have the perfect pair of shoes to go with it!
And what girl doesn't love a mani/pedi? Especially after painting, tiling the counter top, organizing, and decorating a classroom. And I need my eyebrows waxed. I seriously feel like I have two fuzzy caterpillars planted where my eyebrows use to be.

I've been busy working in my classroom for the last week and a half. My kids love playing in my classroom while I'm working in there. I bring snacks, drinks, and even a movie one day last week. Watching The Lion King on the projector screen was a huge hit! My favorite spot in the room has become my Reading Center. I used my Ikea leaves to create a cozy little corner for the kids. It's not completely finished yet, but here's a sneak peak

And here's my almost finished pinterest inspired project. How did ever survive without blogs and pinterest?



Stay tuned for more classroom pictures. I warned my principal before she saw it that I made some major changes but that I only did what I thought was in the best interest of the room. I was nervous, but she loved it! I can't wait to show it to all of you!
