Holy Moly... It's September, Batman!

I don't even know how this happened!?!  September?  I could've sworn it was just like April or something.  That being said... this chick LOVES fall.  It is my most favoritest season in the history of ever.The temperature here in south Georgia usually falls below 163, 624 degrees... there is football, the fair {funnel cakes....woot}, Halloween, pumpkins, pecans...  it's just a whole lot of fun wrapped up in these months. I am  linking up with Farley to get in on the Currently fun.  ....... and here goes:
 My boys had one of their first real sleepovers last night since we are off today.  They were so excited.  They stayed up until 10 playing Mine Craft {do your kids love this game, too?  i kinda don't get the fascination}, watching Diary of a Wimpy Kid movies, eating ice cream, and having sporadic Nerf gun wars.  Yep, ladies... livin' the dream over here! :)

Next up... my toes.  You wouldn't think that your toes should make you this happy... but I give you exhibit A:
I go for a pedicure every 2 weeks...a tradition I started when I was first pregnant with M1 and couldn't reach my toes.  I decided this was a tradition to keep up.  Being the only girl in the house has its advantages! 

Thinking:  I'm stuck in love/hate limbo with back to school.  I love it... I truly do... the setting up of the classroom, the organizing, etc.  But the beginning of a school year is exhausting... this is only year 12 for me, but there has to be something I can do to alleviate some of the stress.... I'm open for ideas!  Friday was day 22 for us...  

Wanting a getaway... not some huge extravagant type thing....  just some away time over a weekend.  I'm going to start looking online for places within a few hours of here that we could escape go to!  

Needing: shampoo.... OK... I don't really need to drive to Savannah today for shampoo.  BUT I am excited about grabbing my friend and heading to Ulta.  I don't even wear a lot of make-up... but I love that place.  I'm going to enjoy this day off as much as possible... then I"m gonna drag myself back tonight to write lesson plans {grrrrr}

<3 :  Color Run with my girls at the end of this month in Atlanta!!!  I don't even run, but I am excited about the experience.... and really excited about going to IKEA.  There are 6 of us on our team....  our team name: Six in the City {insert happy face}
I had electrolysis for the first time last month and I go again this week.  I am so stinkin' excited about not having to shave under my arms... like EVER again.  Not that its a crazy hassle... but EVER again!!!  Last on my list is to pay it forward...  I could never have the life I do now without the kindness of others...  I'm excited about trying to pay some of that forward this month.  My focus is primarily going to be college students... 

I hope that y'all will have an AMAZING day off today...  also, have you entered for the Silhouette machine from my friend (IRL) the Extra Energetic Educator?  It ends in 2 days... so quick... head over and enter!!!  Click on the pic below to head her way!  Talk to y'all soon!  


  1. We agree with your love/hate relationship with back to school. Wish we had some great solutions! We have a long dismissal time where we have to be in the classroom so we try to do a bit here and there during that time to keep on top of things. It's hard at the beginning of the year! Have a great day off!

  2. LOVE Ulta! Have you tried It's A 10? I love that whole product line as well as Bumble & Bumble. Have fun at beauty store Heaven!! I live in Georgia as well - South Georgia - about an hour from Savannah but closer to Florida. Hope that makes sense!

  3. Mine Craft...all the boys at school are talking about it; sixth graders. I can remember one Mine Craft fanatic last year, but it seems all of them are into it this year. I'm with you I don't see the fascination. Just think in a few months or so there will be a new craze. Have a great month.

  4. Thanks for the shout out! I'm ready to "walk" the Color Run! I'm going to start practicing today...walking to the fridge and back to the couch! Great post! LOVE the toes!!!

  5. Day 22!? Wow! We are on day 3! Love your nails! What a great tradition! :)

  7. Ha! I'm the only girl in my house too (3 boys, 1 husband, 2 male hamsters and a male cat)! I love your idea of regular pedicures. Now, that my husband and I gave ourselves spending $ raises (after 5 stinking years), this may just be how I spend some of it! Love your blog!

  10. My younger daughter loves Mine Craft too. I don't get it. The graphics are crazy horrible. Whatever! Enjoy your visit to Ikea. My mom and I refer to it as Mecca. ;)
