January 2015 Currently

It's been a long time since I've linked up with Farley for a monthly currently. I have been somewhat out of the blog scene for a while and with my new blog name, I figured this new year would be a great restart.


Listening: Currently I am in my craft room/office. It is in the front of the house so I hear all of the cars driving by. I am also sitting next to my portable heater and dachshund Pippin because it is FREEZING in my house!

Loving: I am loving the fact that I am on winter break. This school year has been... different. it took a while to get in the swing of things, but now I'm loving it! I can't wait to see what the rest of the year has planned for me and my students!

Thinking: There are so many things that I want to get done before I go back to work. Things for work, personal things, things around the house, and I still want to get some more relaxation time in too! Is it summer yet. ;-)


Wanting: To be warmer. My room is the coldest in the house and that means that I have my portable heater as well as the house heater on and I am still freezing. Did I mention I live in AZ and I shouldn't be complaining about the cold? I don't know how you people that live in snow do it!

Needing: I really need to go to the grocery store. We probably haven't been in 3 weeks. It's been rough guys. We've been creating some really "unique" creations from what we have in the house. I need motivation to brave the cold and the crowds that are probably preparing for New Years.

Yes: This year I am determined to be more healthy. Yes, I am going to work out more, but my main goal is eating healthy. I plan on trying out new recipes and eventually be able to pull from recipes that I like in order to meal plan. Meal planning/grocery shopping Sundays are my goal for this year.

Maybe: It's been a while since I've blogged regularly on my blog and even longer since I've really participated in the teaching community and I have to say, I've really missed it. I recently moved from 2nd grade to kindergarten and that took a while to get used to, but now I feel at home. I have so many ideas for my blog and TPT that I hope... maybe I will get back into it, at least by the summer.
 

I wish: I wish I lived in California so I could have an annual pass to Disneyland, no joke! I watch Disney vlogs on YouTube and know everything there is to know about Disneyland. Only problem is, I've only been there 3 times in my lifetime and I only live 6 hours away. It's so close, but yet so far! I will be going for my 30th birthday in December 2015, so excited!!!

I hope you enjoyed my January 2015 currently now I'm off to read what all of you are up to. Make sure to head on over to Farley's blog and link up!

Christmas Time

The holidays are just around the corner, but I am finally on winter break! What did we do in December you may ask? Well I will show you. :-)

 We decorated a Christmas tree with ornaments that went home as parent gifts.


We got an elf named Kristoff who shared many laughs with us.


  

  

  

  

He even became the topic of many stories in our classroom. 
 "We have an elf. I can't believe that elf is actually here. Oh my gosh!"

We had a Grinch day complete with Grinch hats! It also happened to be my birthday which was awesome in itself.

We studied reindeer and had a reindeer week. We also made root beer floats!

We had a spirit week and one of the days was ugly sweater day, but my favorite was DISNEY DAY!!!

 

I rearranged the back of my room to make a second teaching area.

 Happy Holidays!!
