Currently - August!

One of my latest hashtags on my Instagram has been #slowdownsummer but at this point it feels almost futile! Students report August 13th so ready or not, here they come, you can't hide.. (Sung to the Fugees melody if you know it lol)

So I'm linking up with Farley  for the oh so cute Currently linky. Did you know she also makes classroom versions? Sweet!


Last week Mr.Handsome and I did our detox week. Its just something we do from time to time to reboot. We make our own rules which include no red meat, eating out and worst of all NO COFFEE! Omg I made it but this coffee this morning is going to hit the spot.


Our weather! The temperature has finally dropped a little making it amazing. Yesterday we went on a little hike and I'm actually writing this post this morning from my porch :). I should be listening to Summer Breeze 


In service days are slowly creeping up. The school year is approaching! I'm excited to begin a new year but I always get a case of the nerves too! I'm looking forward to continuing to grow as a teacher. Its one of my current goals. Have you set any for your year yet? Post them on Instagram!


I wish I could rewind last week but with my homework already finished! Lol my work consumed me for the last week and it just felt like the most. I'm sending love to anyone else in grad school right about now. I just have to remember I'm almost finished! And it's for the kids! But man, no more budgets, essays, or audits please!


Even with all that complaining above, hey I had to vent just a little, I need to go ahead and sign up for fall classes. I will graduate in Spring so 2 semesters to go! I can do this! And if you're in school, so can you!


I love this idea! And I love the plan Farley has to drop things in the teacher mailboxes. I'd like to try that. I also wanted to send a teacher one of my products and all the necessary craft materials to complete wit their class. But I don't know how I could collect addresses and randomly send it to someone. Any ideas? If so please share! 

Well thanks for reading. Hope you've linked up as well :) Have a great week!

Oh an don't forget the TPT Back to School Sale Aug 3-4th!
My store will have some items on sale  :)


  1. I LOVE your RAK idea! I wonder if you could set up a google form where teachers could enter their info like a giveaway and then randomly pick a few? Or just have a giveaway and then contact the winner for their info... but that wouldn't be a surprise in the mail! I can't wait to see how you figure it out! ;)

    1. Thanks for the suggestions! Hopefully I'll figure out something!

  2. I also love your RAK idea! That is such a sweet way to not only help teachers in your area, but the whole teaching community!

  3. What a great idea for the RAK! I don't have a great idea for the addresses? Office/staff directory from secretaries?

    1. That's true, I could give it to someone in my building... hmmm!

  4. Hey Ms. M!

    I'm so glad I found you in this link up! I totally know what you are going through! My first year teaching, I was also getting my masters in ed! It was so horrible, but when the end came, it felt like I could conquer anything! You will get through it and be amazing!

    Anyways, looking forward to reading more of your posts!


    1. Well I'm glad you found me too! Thanks for coming by and I'm glad to know someone feels my pain!

  5. I'm also in grad school and will graduate this upcoming spring. It feels so great to be in the home stretch! Also, your blog is so cute and I'm glad I found it through the link-up!
