Currently....and a giveaway!

We made it to October!!!  I don't know if any other teachers felt that September was a very LONG month!  Two weeks into school and I felt like I had been teaching for two months!  But, we have finally hit October and I am very happy to be here!

Today, I am linking up with Farley and her monthly Currently!

Listening- I wrote my currently this morning when I got to school.  My classroom was nice a quiet and I was just enjoying the silence because soon fourteen amazing fifth graders would come bouncing in and ready to learn. (I started writing this blog post this morning!)

Loving- I love fall.  It is my favorite time of the year.  I love the smells, the leaves changing, the fall baking!  Everything fall I am loving!

Thinking-  I am taking Friday off to attend a women's retreat with my church.  I am excited for a week-end away, but not looking forward to writing sub plans.  I tend to be very detailed in my sub plans and they end up pages long!

Wanting- I am heading up to Camp of the Woods in Speculator, NY this week-end.  I know the colors will be amazing up there.  I am excited for a week-end of relaxation and studying God's word.

Needing- SLEEP! No explanation needed!

Treat-  I made these yummy Oatmeal Apple Pie Bars this week-end.  They are amazing.  You can catch the recipe HERE.

Another treat for you!  I have had a Teacher Pay Teachers store for a few months.  I don't have many products, but I have some and I hope to add more as time allows.  I was very excited to have sold 100 items!  I know it is not a major milestone, but I was pretty excited about it!  I have put together a small giveaway for three people to win three items each from my store!  I hope you will enter!

Good Luck!  Well, I am off to get some work done...maybe those sub plans!

Have a great night!



  1. Hello!
    I love the smells of fall too! So glad you left that recipe. My sister has been looking for a recipe that included apples. I will have to pass it along!

  2. I absolutely love the fall time...everything about it. I will love it even more once I get into a routine and my kiddos get used to QUIET centers and guided reading!

    Found your blog through Currently! Would love for you to head over and check out my blog…
