January Currently

I've been all over IG and here not so much... Busy year and let's face it my heart has been with other great things... #sorrynotsorry 

On to the currently...
I was a Netflix champ this break. It has been amazing! I watched A LOT. I watched the last season of Parenthood and cried my eyes out during the finale. UGH... It is so weird to love such characters so much...I definitely see myself and my crazy sibs in this show...LOL but I decided to start over Grey's because I ADORE listening to the early seasons...you know before they jumped the shark...

I really loved this break. This has been a hard year... I caught up on so much family time and resting time. I did not DIY. I did try out new recipes. I caught up on my doctor appointments. I slept in. I nestled by the fire. I didn't lift a finger most days and cleaned like a madwoman on others. I did not stress over a thing. It was fun and restful...as it should be...

I'm thinking I should get those plans and grades done since my first day back is Wednesday and it's Monday... I procrastinate with the best...

I can't really say I want anything. I am perfectly content...at the moment...

I need some order in my life. My schedule has been off the rails. It's the 4th and I am barely doing my currently...HELLO! My sleep schedule totally resembles an unruly infant's. I need to hit the gym. I need to meal prep. I need to get ready for this short week...

My word is BELIEVE...
Cue Whitney and Mariah....

I lost that and I'm trying to get it back because there is so much I want to achieve this 2016! Stay tuned!

Anyhow sweet peeps, Happy New Year! And don't forget the rule of 3!

November Currently

Time for Currently! Taking time from this overwhelming school year to stop and update y'all. It's been insane. Like Farley mentioned just this last week of October alone has been killer! On to the currently.

My Cowboys lost. This isn't a great year for them either. That's all I'll say about that.

I am loving one hour more-even though the hubbs woke me up for breakfast this morning. He's cute so I'll forgive him. I love this time of year. The chill in the air. It gets darker earlier. It's just now starting to feel like Fall...

October was rough. Last week was Hell on earth. The moon, Red Ribbon, benchmark testing, report cards, and Halloween...Oh and plenty of my little friends' behavior was off the chain... Joy! 

My instruction time feels nonexistent. Our schedule is constantly scrambled and we are being pulled out for countless presentations... and there's no end in sight...

I'm going to ask y'all to pray for me or send good thoughts. I find myself lacking in patience and organization these days... 

On to the yummy because this post is feeling like a downer...
My sister in law made this dish one year several years ago and I swear it is scrumptious and so easy to make. We have to have it every year now! 


Enjoy!

I am looking forward to finding yummy recipes this currently. Link up follow the rule of 3!

October Currently


Howdy peeps! I know it's been a while. You can always find me on IG 'cause that's my jam.

On to the currently!

It's super quiet and I'm starting to spook myself. Watching Walking Dead late with the hubbs is making my mind imagine all kinds of things...

I love all the fall decor, but it feels quite ridiculous in 90+ degree weather. I've got all kinds of Halloween stuff up. I LOVE IT! 
And it will stay up until November because of Dia de los muertos, ok really because I'm lazy and I hate to take it down...
  
My brain is still screaming DEADLINES, but not as much as before. THANK YOU SWEET BABY JESUS!

Someone was saying they love October because their class has settled into their groove and kids are starting to get it. . .So not happening here. I have some sweethearts that aren't getting into any groove and I'm starting to think I need some support. I don't know, but somethings gotta give before I lose my marbles. All of the extra pulling out for assemblies and what not isn't helping. Yup, it's one of THOSE years...

I'm still being inconsistent in the exercise department, but I did to manage to lose 1.6 lbs this month. I know, I laughed when my dietitian said it too! I wish it was way more, but it'll do. 

so on to the juicy stuff...
ok the hubbs always makes me feel boo-tiful, but sweet kisses from my three... they are magical! I can feel the way they see me (gorgeous, all knowing goddess...) with their good morning mommy kisses...
sweaty workouts like, give it your all, my legs are shaking, I can't do another rep workouts 
make me feel the bomb.com...
and there is nothing like a sexy new lipstick to put bit of pep in my step...

That's it. Link up and don't forget the rule of 3. I'm going to bed and wake up to a Friday! Woot woot!

September Currently

Its that time again! So excited to be linking up with the one and only Farley! Here we go...

I was planning for next week on the couch when my babies all decided they needed snuggles from mommy. They're all over our couches snoozing now...

I actually hate short weeks because I feel like I've lost time for practice with my students, but I'm going to go visit my mommy to enjoy this long weekend and just RELAX...

My campus is undergoing lots of changes...new adoptions, programs, software, hardware...you name it...It is making me sooo nervous. I'm not quite sure how to fit it ALL into our already short day...it must be done...

hence the WANT for peace or some meds....or both...just saying...

but I know all I NEED is rest and my Jesus. If I can only get more real sleep I could find a way through all the hooplah...

GOALS:
I did awesome all summer and then classroom setup happened and I fell off the wagon. I need to get back into working out consistently. It helps with the sleep and the thinking...and the adult-ing...it's so tough to adult...

One of the many must do's this year is label, label, label... I just ordered my HP 8210 and I plan on getting instaink to help me with my ink issues...wish me luck!

I want to keep planning ahead for school. I fall back on that and its like a negative snowball effect. It HAS to be a priority. HAS to be...

Anyhow, I better get a few zzz's so I can hit the gym. Link up and don't forget the rule of three!

Assess Me Linky: Week 2 This or That

I love this linky. Time for WEEK 2!


I do enjoy skirts, but I love jeans! I wear them every Friday during the school year!
My ears do not like any metal. Everything itches. SO necklaces for me.
JZs (I graduated high school in 2001-memories...)
I'll mix silver and gold or just do one or the other. LOVE it!
I love the country. We have 80 acres (2 hrs away from our home in the city). We are outdoorsy people. We ride, shoot, camp, fish, and swim on it. No cell/internet service out there. It's nice to take breaks from technology.
I don't like to be bothered when I shop. Online ALL the way! Plus I always find promo codes to up the savings when I shop online. 
I have 3 kids (that always need something) so showers.
Something about my eyes. I'm an open book.
I'm homebody until I get stir crazy then I can't sit down.
Dinner. I love to cook it and I don't really care for breakfast foods.
I love white tea. I just quit coffee, but I still love it.
I stay up way to late and wake up too early. I wanna see it all.
Undone. I don't know why, but I can never look done up. Even when I try...
I am from a West Texas town that gets its fair share of thunder and lightning storms. It's home.
Flats b/c my classroom is too far from everywhere I need to be and I am a major klutz.
I love to travel so all 3.
I love Zooey Deschanel and see so much of my silly self in her character Jess.
I've been to NY but never to Central Park. SO I guess central air? LOL

August Currently

It's here. . . Our "Sunday Night" Month! I'm determined to get my BTS stuff done and STILL enjoy this sucker...

Time for my favorite .... Currently!


I've been re-watching Grey's so Rilo Kiley, Ingrid Michaelson, and Lenka have been on my iTunes. There's something easygoing and summery about their jams...

Today was one of the few lazy saturdays we've had this summer. They are few and far between...

I loved Farley's post. I have some great peeps in my boat. I just need to learn to lean on them and ask for help. I am such a control freak. I really need to learn to delegate. A goal this year for sure!

We aren't allowed back in yet. I am just itching to get my room ready to go. I have seen so many beautiful classrooms on IG. The next few weeks are going to fly and I am already having BTS nightmares. In the last one my room wasn't ready. It felt real y'all!

I am needing help! I need a new sitter and maid. My district has lots of half days and inservice days this year and my sitter is finishing college so she's too busy. I need help once a week tidying up and I am finally giving in and getting a maid once school starts. This is that delegating goal I was talking about. I am tired of wasting my weekends on cleaning and not with my babies... Cross your fingers I find great people to help me!

B2S RAK Ok I am going to sound like a copy cat but I have some goodies lined up for my ex team and my new team and buddies in other grade levels, but ESPECIALLY for some teachers that I think people tend to forget about...like our coaches and librarian.

That's it sweet peeps. Link up with the Fabu Farley and follow the rule of 3!
