currently late to the party!

Hey y'all!

I always want to write that but I'm not from the south (obvi) so I never do...but today I guess I'm feeling a little feisty!

Excited, as usual, to link up with Farley for her Currently party!

Listening to...
New fave song is Latch by Disclosure featuring Sam Smith. You can look up the official video (a little too racy for this blog!) but here's a lyrics only version so you can hear the song!

So good, right?

Loving...Summer Vacation!
I've been a busy girl! Ran the color run:

Went painting with teacher friends:

Went to Europe!!!

Just the Mona Lisa, nbd :-)

Ran a Mud Run. Yes, I paid money to do this. (Super fun!) (Once a year super fun status!)

Met up with Chicagoland Bloggers:

I guess I was due for all of this after the crazy cold Chiberia winter we had!

Thinking...about the awesome teachers in D100!
Today I taught a PD about setting up teacher blogs. Teachers all got blogger accounts, we set the themes and layouts, did at least one post, added a page or two, and went over BlogLovin and growing your network with social media. Great day, and I'm so excited for the new blogs I get to follow!

I feel like this is off center but I'm going to be imperfect and let it go! :-)

Wanting...another European Vacation!
I so want to take my former students to Europe. Earliest would be summer of 2017. It was awesome to go with Heather's students, but would be even awesomer to take my own kids who are kinda like my little family. Love teaching. Love kids. Love travel. Let's put it all together!

Needing...My car needs a serious detail. Stat.
Some things I'm good at. Others, like keeping my car clean, yeah...not so much. I still haven't cleaned my car since the winter ended. There's leaves on the floor and my doors don't seal right, so when it rains, tons of water leaks in. The exterior is pretty gross, too. I'm hoping by the next time I link up with Farley I'll have a super sparkly car!

4th of July Plans
Nothing set in stone, but probably going to the suburbs with Hektor's family for cooking out and fireworks. Sounds about perfect in my book!

That's all for Currently, but wait! There's more!
Well, now that you're here, you may as well hear about the BigTime Blogging Challenge! I'll be posting a linky every day this month and I'd love to have you join! Blog as much or as little as you'd like! Check out the deets here and download a calendar of prompts here. Hope you can link up with me!

That's all for July! Have a great month and I'll catch'ya on the flipside!


  1. I've been painting with my teacher friends twice now and it was soooo much fun! I am excited to do it again! Have a great day!

  2. Wow! You have been a busy person! Were you surprised at how small the Mona Lisa is? I love your painting! Happy 4th!

  3. You certainly have been a busy lady! Where did you do painting? I've been wanting to do something like that! In LaGrange?

    Short and Sassy Teacher

    1. Hey Erin - yes we did go to Bottle and Bottega in LaGrange. Super fun!
