September *Currently*

I'm here early on a holiday morning to link up with Farley over at Oh Boy, 4th Grade for her fun Currently party.  Thanks for hosting, Farley!



Listening:  I'm at our family's lake house for the holiday weekend.  I can see the lake front while sitting on the porch.  It's always so nice waking up to the sound of boats and skiers on the lake. 

Loving: I've been F&P testing since school started.  The little readers that come into my room to get tested are so adorable, but listening to the same stories and asking the same questions over and over gets a little mundane, let alone sitting in a chair all day, which I'm so not used to doing.  Throughout the summer, I was on the move everyday, all day, hanging with my little wild ones. 

Thinking: I got a manicure and pedicure at the start of summer, but since it was a busy one with the kids,  I never made it back.  A little "Mama-pampering" is always a good thing, so I'm thinking...bring it on! 

Wanting:  It's a tad darker outside this morning than I'd like.  I'm noticing some big clouds rolling in, so I'm wanting them to roll a bit faster out of town.  We'd love to make it onto the boat for another long, lazy day swimming along the sandbar. 

Needing:  How did September get here so fast?  Another school year has started, which is unbelievable.  Once Halloween makes it's debut, I feel like all of the major holidays come and go too quickly. At Hobby Lobby the other day, I noticed Christmas items already perched on the shelves.  Christmas, people!  Life, please slow down.  How is it that I've been teaching 19 years already, but I'm still only 25 years old? ;) (not really, of course)

3 Trips: Now that I have kids, our trips consist of camping and the lake house, which are both close to home.  However, one day in the future, I'd love love to visit London, Sydney and Tahiti.  They seem like glorious places.  Visiting them with my amazing best friend and hubby would allow for some great memories to be made. 

Well, Happy Labor Day and don't forget to stop by Oh Boy, 4th Grade

  3. I would love to spend a weekend at a Lake House! I don't think my husband would want to do that though. I start back to school tomorrow. I do not even have kids until Thursday! I just went on a dream vacation to London. It was amazing! I'd go again in a heartbeat. It had been my dream vacation since I was 16. I hope you get to go there one day!

  7. Oh my - so want a lake house - definitely on my bucket list! Where is your family's place? How fun for your kiddos to have great family memories at the lakehouse growing up!

    I also saw Christmas Candles out at TJ Maxx today! It is pretty crazy...the pumpkin spice lattes are back at sbux (but I read an article about how they're SOOOO bad for you - so I"m going to just keep it to one or two this season!

    Have a great week! I"ll be doing TONS of FnP Testing, too. I hear ya, girl!

    1. Yes. It's very unfortunate how all of those wonderful-tasting, holiday-themed drinks are loaded with such flavor exploding goodness, but at the same time awful-for-you ingredients!! They'll still taste amazing in moderation. Good luck F&P testing! ;)
