October Currently: Fall is Here!!!

Whee . . . it's October! I know for some teachers this is their least favorite time of the year due to the kiddos being on a sugar high, costume crazy frenzy; but I heart Halloween! I can't wait until October 31st and do some Spook-tacular activities with my class. (I know a lot of you out there are excited that Halloween falls on a Friday this year).

BUT, in the meantime, I will settle for the beginning of October and enjoy all the food and fruits that the fall season brings. Beginning of October also means ... drum rolls please ... October Currently! I am linking up with Farley from Oh'Boy 4th Grade again.


All About that Bass by Meghan Trainor. I am seriously obsessed with this song. It is so catchy and the message to young ladies all women to accept their own body is pretty powerful too. I love that Jimmy Fallon did a classroom instruments version on the Tonight Show.


It's my momma's birthday tomorrow! The end of September and first week of October is a tough one for me when it comes to buying gifts and making cards because not only is it my mother's birthday in October 2nd, but my sister's birthday is a week before hers on September 28. Ooof...my poor wallet!

I am SO in love with the way my card turned out. Of course, I won't take all the credit. I asked my sister to help me cut the actual 3-D box while I stamped, used the big shot, and cut my heart away. I hope my mom loves her card as much as I do!


Still thinking about winter break and starting a countdown on my desktop calendar. Enough said!!!


Oh...another reason why October is wonderful... it means I am that much closer to Black Friday shopping. I know that Silhoutte did a BOGO last year of their machine. I had a tight budget last year, so I am hoping this will be the year I can get me one. This way, I can have one in my classroom and one at home. 


And, I really need to get my way to Michaels since they have 50% off coupon this week. I want me one of these awesome Fuji Film Instax cameras. Of course, mine is going to be the pink one!


To spare everyone from too much T.M.I, let's just keep it simple and say that I need a day to pamper myself. I tend to always forget to do what I need to for myself once the school year starts. I am hoping this weekend I will be able to go take care of all my essential maintenance routine!

Trick or Treat

"Trick or treat, smell my feet . . . give me something good to eat!" Yes . . . I am SUPER mature! I think I even on both. I need a good trick (spook) but I equally want all my treats!
