Currently: July and 50% off Lesson Plan books!!

Hi Everyone!
Although it's only the 2nd of July..I feel like I'm late to the Currently party!! Of course, it's got to be a group of teachers who are super on it and get this thing done a.s.a.p! :P 

I'm linking up with Farley again for this months currently. Seriously?? Does July need to come this quickly?? Every summer when July hits I come to the realization that my summer is pretty much over..I pretty much spend the entire month of July working on getting ready for the new school year. Wait, what am I talking about? I've spent the whole summer doing that! lol! Oh, the life of a teacher I tell ya...and people think that we have summers off?! 

Anyways..here's my currently!

Listening: To the fiance frying some turkey bacon. I love being able to actually sit down with him during the summer for breakfast!!

Loving: Who doesn't love summer, right?! I'm loving that I have all the time in the world to do whatever I want- although it still feels like I don't have enough time in a day! BUT..I love that we're headed off to the beach today for another fishing adventure! Hopefully I catch something...

Thinking: As I'm eating breakfast...I can't stop thinking about the yummy food we'll be eating for lunch and dinner. Yes, I'm constantly thinking about food...lol. We're going to be trying this place He'eia Pier for lunch and the picture on yelp look SO GOOD!
Follow me here on instagram to follow all of my teaching and food adventures here in paradise.
I'll be posting a pic of my lunch..and crossing fingers to be posting a catch for today!!

Wanting: there to be one more summer of vacation. I'm not ready to go back yet!

Needing: To continue working out and eating healthy so that I can shed some pounds. I've put so much weight on since I started teaching..it's crazy! I guess it doesn't help when everyday the kids tell me how good I like...when I really don't! lol Plus, I need to trim down for my wedding, which is still tbd.

Tips, tricks, or hints: Do what works for you!! Don't try to recreate something that you've seen and liked from someone else. Don't try to meet other peoples expectations for products or blogging...Do what you will use in your own classroom, post what works well for you..and what didn't! People love to hear about success stories but I think that they also like to hear about those not so good moments...because hey, we all have them!

ALSO..If you've made it all the way down here...

My bright colored lesson plan book is on sale in my TPT store until Thursday midnight Hawaii time for only $3.50!  If you missed it..take a look at my blog post where I give you a detailed look at what's inside..

I also have a black, white and gray version that is quite similar but saves on a TON of ink. This is also available in my TPT store for only $3.50

Until next time!!


  1. I was late to the game too, still trying to figure out this blogging thing, but I'll get there! Your my second EVER in the Rule of 3! Love that rule, it's just so very nice!

    I'm very jealous, as I'm sure you have heard before, that you live in Hawaii. What a beautiful place to be, makes Ohio seem quite as boring as it is. Lol.

    When do you go back to school? One month, like you will start at the beginning of August? I am always interested in how other states/ districts work their calendar. We are standard for a former farming style community. Last week in August to the first week in June. Many districts around us have moved things up though. They are started mid-August and ending before Memorial Day.

    Anyway... a little tangent there, sorry! Good luck with the working out. I am trying to get back into running myself. Enjoy that last month and the beach!


  2. I'm so jealous that you are heading to the beach! I live a few hours away and usually make a few trips each summer and I haven't been there yet! I NEED to get there! Have fun! :)

  3. So jealous you live in Hawaii and have access to the beach all the time! :) BTW, turkey bacon sounds delicious! I'm your newest follower on bloglovin.

    Cheers To School

  4. hehehehe... I had the same problem with my wedding. I kept saying I would shed the pounds later and never did. Sigh... I have now decided that I will make that my goal for when all the kids leave home.
