Everyday I'm Hustlin'

Hey.... It's Maaaay!  Also known as the HUSTLIN' month!  Right?  School ends for us on May 23rd (16 more days of school) and man...everyday has something fairly BIG going on.  I'm taking a few minutes out to link up with Farley over at Oh Boy 4th Grade {love her}.  Here's what I'm "Currently" up to!
Listening:  to the mental to-do list running in my head over and over... but with House Hunters playing in the background.  I'm trying to get all those thoughts on paper so I won't forget anything, but I know it's inevitable.

Loving: that there are only 16 more days of school til summer break.  I love my job and I love my class {truly} ... but I am really looking forward to sleeping in, having a flexible schedule, spending more time with my boys, beach trips, and my Vegas trip with a bunch of bloggy friends!  Teachers in our county report back for pre-planning the last week of July so I plan on truly relaxing and letting loose while I can... it goes by super duper fast!

Thinking: about other moves that I need to do to become healthier.  I recently got a Fit Bit about a month ago and my goal has been to try to get to 10K steps each night and drink 1/2-1 gallon of water each day.  I can't drink that much during the day b/c I can't easily get to the bathroom that often w/o inconveniencing others.  I have a few friends with a Fit Bit and we compete with steps each week and can cheer each other on.  It's been really cool this week to watch it help motivate me to get out and walk.  I feel like I need to try to regain back some of what I've lost over the last year or so.  If you've followed me for awhile you know that I delivered a baby girl almost 1/2 way through my pregnancy last year.  In this past year I have gained 30 pounds and I feel like I am just now at the point where I'm able to address it mentally and emotionally.  Wish me luck...

Wanting: I really, really want some new Tory Burch sandals.  These are the ones I want.  And to be honest... I think they want to live with me, too!  :)  Maybe if I can meet my first weight loss goal I can buy them for myself.
Needing: to plan my almost 8 year old's birthday party!  I can't believe that my baby boy is almost 8 (at the end of this month).  He is in 2nd grade this year and school comes naturally to him.  He is empathetic and he loves his mom.  Michael {M1} is super tech savvy, loves seafood, and has his daddy's crazy hair!  

Surprise:  You've got to go follow my friend, the Extra Energetic Educator on Facebook.  She shares the best cross grade level freebies every single Sunday... so selfless and a FAB teacher.  Run  to her page now so you can check out her Sunday Freebie Roundup!  
I hope that your week has been amazing so far.  Hopefully your May is also off to a great start!  Talk to y'all soon!!!  


  1. thanks so much for linking up :) I LOVE house hunters too... it is distracting.. and sometimes I look at hubs and tell him... we are moving there!!! LOL... it has gotten a lot worse because we are house hunting too... LOL

  2. I think you deserve the new shoes ;) I am a fellow shoe lover!

  3. Stacy - 16 days girl!!! Whoo-hoo but yes I bet you have a big ole list going on. I have about 24 days left and that's good enough for me. Can't wait for summer baby! Keep at it you will get there...try to eat clean most of the time and keep exercising. I just started eating clean again and it's making a huge difference.
    hugs my friend,
    Teaching and Much Moore

  4. It's going to go by so quickly! And we're the same way with a busy calendar! I am really looking forward to summer vacation this year too-usually I teach summer school, but this year I just need a break. :)


  5. I think you deserve an award for being #2 to link up! Fit bit challenge week #2 - Bring it! :)


  6. I'm planning a birthday party too! One of my girlies will be 2 this week and her party is next weekend. Don't your children grow up way too fast? If I had a super power, it would be to recall on demand of every detail of every moment of my children's lives.

  7. You rock, girl! What a great surprise! Thanks a bunch! I've been eyeing the FitBit for a while! I need to join the team's daily challenge!

  8. I've been debating whether or not to get a FitBit! I'm kind of excited about so few days until I realize how much I have to cram into them. :/

    You Might Be a First Grader….
