Well hello there blog! I know, I know, it’s been awhile…
Back to school has been kicking my behind! I’m hoping we get into a routine soon so I can get back to my regularly scheduled activities of watching TV, creating products, and blogging!
I’m so thankful for the currently because it made me give my blog some lovin’ today! Thanks Farley for hosting, as always!!
Listening: I love all the X-Men movies! My husband and I actually had a marathon over the summer. I feel like I’ve seen First Class once a week this summer, but I’m not complaining!
Loving: Please do not laugh, but I was seriously using versions of PowerPoint and Word from when I was still in high school! Did you know that there’s a teacher deal to get the whole Microsoft package for $9.95?! Well, I didn’t…but once I found out I was all over that! I’m also working on upgrading to Adobe Pro – right now I’m doing the trial and I’ll buy it when that’s over. Makes my creating sooo much easier!
Thinking: This happens every time we have a long weekend, and it will continue to happen because I have thoughts of grandeur!! But that’s ok because I really didn’t have that much to do this weekend for school and I did get a lot done – but there’s just always more to do!
Wanting: My husband was out of town (out of the country is more like it!) the whole first week of school. He came back for 4 days and now he’s out of town again until tomorrow. I’m ready for him to be home!!
Needing: I told myself I’d put in the laundry before I started this post (didn’t happen). My grocery list is halfway done and once it’s finished I’ll procrastinate going to the store for another hour or two (least favorite chores!!!)
3 trips: I’m not a “big city” kind of girl but I’ve never been to Boston or Chicago so I’d just like to go once to see what it’s all about!
I’d love to be vacationing in Hawaii right about now! The pictures always look so beautiful!
Australia and New Zealand are on both my list and my husband’s so hopefully we’ll get over there one day!

Favorite art supply?? Markers!!✨️I used to always let my students use markers when we did handwriting. It just makes it more fun!! At home, my daughter was practicing with my Ways to Show Numbers pages and grabbed her Magic Stix markers by TPG Creations ✨️ These markers are the best!!! They get used constantly in our home and the ink lasts for so long! ... See MoreSee Less
