Currently...July Edition

July is almost upon us and this is my 2nd linky that I am participating in.... I have linked up with Oh' Boy 4th Grade's Currently Linky Party as a way to break out of my blogging shell! I am still *new* to the blogging world and just getting to know some fabulous bloggers and have seen these "Currently" posts and decided to join in! Fun times! So as I posted in the Doodle Bugs linky... I have been getting up pretty early this week and will be next week and almost every weekend for the rest of the summer... *sigh*

Anyhow, we are obsessed with the Big Bang Theory! Brian and I  (when he's home) watch it every night and crack up hysterically! 

My favourite character is Dr. Sheldon Cooper. Here are some of his greatest moments!

LOVING.-- Ginger Dressing! I so could drink it with a straw!!!Although I am not much of a salad eater, I do LOVE salads in the summer because they are cool and refreshing and I recently went to Publix and bought a salad kit with ginger dressing and now I am hooked--again! I go through this every summer!

THINKING.... I don't know about you but I am the kind of person that cannot turn school off-- well sometimes. I did this week-- kinda, sorta, maybe! It was in the back of my brain but with all this waking up early it just wasn't in the forefront of my mind (although if you do follow me on Pinterest you will know I was pinning away!! That counts, right? LOL!). I was thinking that I need to start working on my Wizard of Oz room decor! I was on TPT and saw so many CUTE back to school classroom decor and while it is all lovely, I need something to fit what I need for my room. So I am still in the creative processes of thinking what I need to create for an Oz inspired room. I know that it will be rainbow and chevron and of course infused with the Oz characters! Also, I was thinking I need a tan! Seems funny that an already brown person needs a tan and the answer is YES! I do! My upper thighs don't quite match my legs... So I guess I can catch up on my work at the beach!

I really want to go here! I have never been! Have you? There are so many places I want to go and this is one! You would think with Brian being a pilot we could go anywhere! Not so much! Nope! Anyhow...a girl can dream.... One day....We are on lockdown for a few weeks (jury summons-- moan, grown, hiss) so it's a BIG BUMMER!!!

So, I was thinking that if I wasn't a teacher... what would I do? Honestly, I would love to be a decorator or a party planner! I love to decorate and plan! Hence, the need to decorate the boys' rooms and bathroom. They are growing up and need the decor to go with it. Here are some pic inspirations I found: 

Both boys love Star Wars and the Avengers! I think they would be happy with either. Mommy would be happy going here for my inspiration:

I could live there! They have those little room motifs, a cafeteria, TV's... Seriously, they have EVERYTHING! 

And lastly, my one blogging tip I have learned is that I have to be me in everything I do. I have just started out in blogging (I started out in March), creating and selling products products (well, not really-- I have always created them just have not sold them on TPT but I am slowly but surely putting them up. My girlfriends at school crack on me when they see my flashdrive with my bajillion files on them-- all potential TPT units!!), joining groups/blogs, and if I have to give advice to someone starting out: be authentic! Always strive to be true to you and that in blogging you are creating an extension of yourself and your classroom in the hopes of sharing ideas, stories (the good, bad, and ugly). My personality shines through my blog and that is really how I am in person-- although I think my humour and candor is a bit dampened in words... Catch me in person and you will see the difference! Haha!

I hope that you have stayed with my this long and enjoyed reading my "Currently"! I look forward to getting to know some of you! 


  1. I found you via the Currently linky and was drawn to your blog title. Oh yeah! Is there any other footwear beside flip flops? BAZINGA!

    1. Glad you stopped by! Yes, we love flip flops here! I wear them everyday on summer vacay!!!

  2. I found you on the currently linky too! This is my first linky! I love that you're new too! Yay for newbie blogging life.

    Your blog looks great!

    I went to Las Vegas for spring break this year (not as wild as you may think, my boyfriend and I were visiting his aunt and uncle). It's definitely a different world there! We saw a Cirque de Soleil show and it was awesome!

    Hardcore Teacher Resources

    1. Welcome to blogging Bridget!!! It is fun and hope you enjoy it! I look forward to the day I visit the bright the meantime I will enjoy the beach that is FL! Looking forward to connecting with you thru our blogs! :-)

  3. I've been to Vegas but only when I was little. My grandparents use to take me all the time to see Siegfried and Roy. I haven't been since then but I have about 3 or 4 facebook friends that are there right now.

    Jim Parsons is from Houston too. I've never seen him but if I do I'll take a picture with him for you :).

    The Learning Chambers

    1. OMG! I would love a pic of him! I am watching an episode right now! LOL!

  4. we are HUGE Big Bang people in our house. I sometimes believe I am living among them. It is a very nerdy household I live in. The dinner conversation go beyond my thought process as my husband and my boys go back and forth with their knowledge.

    But I love it and would not change it for the world.

    1. I know how you feel! Sometimes when I hear my brother and his friends talk I feel so insignificant bc I have no clue what they are talking about. They try to bring me into the conversation but it just doesn't work out that way. Like you, I love them and wouldn't change it either!

  5. WHAT??!!!???? I thought I was already following your blog. Well I took care of that problem right now!!! Flip flops, Florida, first grade, Sheldon, ginger dressing, Publix, all things 80's, wanting to go to Vegas. . . I think that we were separated at birth. Looking forward to reading your blog this summer now that you are on my Bloglovin' feed. Good luck with decorating your boys rooms.

I, too, look forward to staying connected with you and sharing our sisterly love for flip flops, all things 80's, FIRST GRADE!!!, Golden Girls, etc.... We should do a bloggy meet up (I see you live in FL, too)!!!

      Take care!

  6. Hi Leslie! I found your blog thanks to Amy. It's cute! I'm brown and I totally talk about getting a tan (in the spring). My legs and feet usually don't match my arms and face. ^_^ However, I REALLY don't need one anymore. I'm WAY too brown now.
