Hello August!

Hello August! CRAZY!!! School officially starts TOMORROW! Yes, tomorrow! Kids and everything! Ready or Not!!!

I'm linking up with Farley from Oh Boy 4th Grade to share what I'm currently up to on this beautiful August day!

Listening- My husband has music playing on his phone right now. Anyone else completely obsessed with this song right now!?

Loving- This week has been all about {Family Time} The first few weeks of school are completely crazy and it's hard going from spending all day everyday with my sweet littles to only getting to see them for a few hours a day. So, this weekend I've tried to spend as much time with them as possible (in between the crazy amount of stuff I need to do to make sure I'm ready for the first day!)

Thinking- Yes. Our students start tomorrow. This will be my 8th year teaching and I STILL get nervous about the first day of school. I'm really excited to start this school year though! It's going to be an awesome year! 

Wanting- I usually have my first day of school outfit picked out a long time in advance, but I have nothing that I completely in love with yet! So, we are headed to do some back to school shopping this afternoon! I can't wait to share my outfit choices with you! Lindsey from It's Elementary My Dear and I have something in the works!! 

Needing- This is one of my least favorite parts of having a full time job. I'm sure I would hate it if I was home full time too. But, I hate having to go to the grocery store every. single. week.

B2S RAK- I LOVE this idea!! I can't wait to use my Positive Sticky Notes to pass out to some of my fabulous co-workers this week to let them know how amazing they are! I used them a couple weeks ago at our district's New Teacher Institute and they were so much fun!

I hope everyone has an AMAZING August!!! Make sure to head back and visit Farley's blog!


  1. Are your positive stick notes in your store? They're adorable!! You are such a superstar for working full time and having kids!! I hope you find the perfect first day outfit!


  2. I always pick out my first day outfit ahead of time too! However I have plenty of time before I have to do that as we don't start until September. Love the post-it notes!
    thanks for sharing

  3. Have an amazing first day tomorrow! I'm sure you will find the perfect outfit! I'll be in classroom set-up mode this week and then I like to do something similar to you...the last week before I report I stay away from school and try to do NOTHING school related. We'll see how I do with that! ;-)
