August Currently

LISTENING - General Hospital - I am still a faithful fan of General Hospital.  I don't really think there are many fans left since it's one of the only soap operas still on.  In my defense, I was sucked in when I lived overseas and I only had one station on TV.  When I would get off work it was on.  10 years later I still DVR it daily! 

LOVING -  T25 - My new workout program.  I think it's more of a love/hate relationship but it seems to be getting the job done so I'm sticking with it.  Shaun T on the other hand - I don't love him! If you're interested you can read more about it here.  Here is a picture of my favorite tank to work out in.  Don't be too judgy - no makeup and it was EARLY!
Sweating for the Wedding!

THINKING- About wedding stuff!  - There is a lot of work in getting a wedding together! Sheesh.  Who knew? Not this girl.  Thank goodness I have fabulous friends to help. On the bright side I get to make more to do lists and it is really fun to get to check things off of them.  I now have 3 categories for my to do list "home", "school", and "wedding".  Here I am - probably a little too excited about my invitations! 

WANTING - the last days of summer to slow down - Who isn't wanting this right? I adore being a teacher.  It really is part of who I am.  With that being said I give it my ALL. I am wanting to enjoy a few more lazy days before I head in to tackle my classroom.  I don't just go for a few hours here and there...when it's time, I sort of...kind out until it's done.  I even bring bread and PB & J to eat so I don't have to stop working.  I just don't like to work for a few hours at a time...Truth be told, until it's done I can't really sleep anyway so I might as well be working.   

NEEDING- to decide what borders to use in my classroom - I am so undecided about this! Grrr...I'm doing an owl, chalkboard, chevron theme.  I know it sounds like a lot.  You can check it out here if you want.  I can't decide how far to take the chevron theme.  I read an e-card on Instagram the other day and it scared me.  I can't find it anywhere now or I would post it.  It implied that Chevron is cool today but so was shag carpet once too...something like that.  You get the idea.  So...I'm undecided about border. 

 1) Iced Coffee - preferably from McDonalds

2) New Planner - Oh I love my new planner so much.  It's beautiful and functional! You can check it out here. I've shared them with my new 2nd grade team and I can't wait to see them all at planning! 

3) Picture Books - I just can't resist. So many books so little time.  
caught me! 

I hope you'll link up with Farley's currently so I can see what you're up to!


  1. Hi Randi,

    Stopping by from Farley's.

    I don't envy you with wedding plans, but best of luck with your big day! I hope it is all you want it to be and more!

  2. Long time, no see! I've been really bad at blog stalking since before the death of Google Reader, and feeling a bit out of the loop!

    Visiting your site always makes me just a tad wistful as the bit about your "angel mother" resonates with me, as well. :-/

    I also totally hear you on the #teacherproblems issue! We were just in a book store earlier today, right after I met a fellow teacher to buy $100 worth of used resources from her! LOL

  4. Wedding plans can definitely be overwhelming...but it is so worth it! I can't get enough of picture book myself... Every year I tell myself NO MORE BOOKS...but I can't resist. lol

  5. We're with you on the picture books! Wish we could have lots and lots!!

  6. I'm totally with you on the wedding planning chaos! I'm getting married December 28 and this planning in STRESSFUL! I told people they might just want to steer clear of me in December :) Planning teaching time and wedding time might just kill me...


  7. I watch an episode of GH the other day and couldn't believe how fast the kids grew up. Lulu was like 2 years old last time I watched! If I had a DVR I might still be watching it. Love the bookstore pic-I'm on probation right now from buying any more-Amazon loves me right now though! :)


  8. Congrats on the upcoming wedding! It is such an exciting time. I love iced coffee, but I really love an iced café Americano from Starbucks. It's stronger and that is what I usually need.
