I'm still alive - I promise!  Back to School was a busy one this year.  I have switched grades and am now a 5th grade teacher!  Along with switching grades, I also switched classrooms.   Without exaggeration, my new classroom is the furthest classroom from my old one.  Seriously, 3 flights of stairs and the entire length of the building.  And I have a lot of stuff!  Thank goodness for best friends and husbands!

Speaking of a new grade, my new blog is almost done (I think!).  It's taking a little longer than I thought,  but if you want a sneak preview, go check it out!

Once, my new blog is all set, I will be posting pictures of my classroom as well as pictures from the first week.  I can't wait to share!

Now it is time for this month's Currently from Farley!

Fall is my absolute favorite season.  I love the smells, sights and back to school of course!  I am also super excited to be teaching 5th grade.  I have so many ideas and can't wait to implement them!  I am definitely looking for your help though too.  What are some awesome activities to do with 5th graders??

The last box is for loving yourself.  I really need to make sure I am eating healthy.  I think going back to a regular routine (and not as many bbq's) will help!  Cooking dinner is something I really want to focus on as well.  I love to eat out and hate to cook.  But I need to save money and eat healthy!  

Happy September!


  1. I am horrible about cooking dinner.. which probably goes along with eating healthy! Good luck in 5th grade!!

  2. I hate to cook as well! I am on a mission of finding quick, easy, and delicious recipes that might make me want to cook!

  3. First of all, LOVE the colors of your blog! Not surprised to find out it was designed by my sweet friend, Christi!
    Pawn Stars...well, that's right in my very own "backyard". Never been there though.
    I am totally with you on the energy part. Need energy and comfy shoes!
    I hope that you have a fabulous year!! ; -)

  4. I am not sure "save money" and "eat healthy" go together! But I think your point was saving money over eating out! Healthy groceries are more expensive it seems: buying fresh fruits, fresh veggies, healthier meats, less processed foods. But it certainly more self-nurturing, I always feel better when I eat better. Good luck with this!

  5. Energy, I need some too! But I think that goes hand in hand with eating healthier and exercising. Both of which I can't seem to get a grip on! I hope you have better luck at cooking and eating healthier than I am right now! Can't wait to see your new blog!

  6. UGH cooking dinner and back to school do NOT go hand in hand! I eat the most random "dinners" in September, haha! I'm going to try really, really hard to actually COOK this year!

  7. I would love to be able to meal plan AND cook dinner! I hate cooking too..I feel bad for my husband and daughters. My husband makes dinner sometimes (he loves cooking) but with watching our daughter (soon to be be two daughters) and then going to work, it may be impossible.

    Loving your blog!

  8. I can't wait for your new blog! It looks adorable so far! I can only imagine how much work it took to move rooms! One activity I remember loving from 5th grade was bottle buddies. Here's a link to another 5th grade teacher who made them...
