Wait... It's July... Like Currently?

Wowza... it's July?  Oh.  Heck.  No!  I have to go back to work in July....  hmmmm...
The good news is I have a few more weeks... better enjoy those, huh?  So, it's currently July and I'm going to link up with Farley to join in on the fun.  Here goes...
Listening: to a quiet house... everyone is asleep.  Farley posted this... and I got busy!  Yay for quiet time!   

Loving: that summer is still going strong.  That being said… my summer comes to an end on July 25th which is my first day back to work.  Students start here on August 1st.  The boys and I have been enjoying the water park a lot and lots of time with friends.
Thinking:  about going to Las Vegas in a week….  EEEEEK, I am so stinkin’ excited.  I get to hang with some of my bloggy besties.  We are even going to the New Kids on the Block concert.  This girl is READY! 
Wanting:  my surgery on Wednesday to go smoothly and quickly.  I have female organs that have an attitude!  Jokes aside, I have pretty severe endometriosis and ovarian cysts.  It hurts to sit down most days (TMI maybe?) … so it’s time for yet another scope.  I covet your prayers if you’re the praying type. 
Needing: to go work in my classroom.  I have decided on a theme which is different than what I have done in the past and I’m really excited.  I have been shopping, but I really want to get in there and get BUSY! 
So this picture from Schoolgirl Style is my inspiration.  I already used blue and lime this year...and I love anchors... VOILA!  I am so excited about trying to pull it altogether.  Fingers crossed... and I will certainly be posting pictures at the end of July once I'm done.  {stay tuned}  
 Here's what I've got going so far:  I've stopped at Home Goods (BOOM!!), Hobby Lobby, and TJ Maxx.  I ordered the navy polka dot and lime border from Schoolgirl Style's shop.  
Gotta get some navy and lime magnets from Tea and Coffee... I have the teal and lime, but I think I need a darker blue for this year.  I know that I have more shopping to do.... but I'm stoked at what I have going so far!  

4th Plans:  Hoping to feel well enough to go watch my boys do a karate demo at the county fireworks show.  Fingers crossed.  Hope y'all have an amazing 4th with your families!  Talk to y'all soon!


  1. I may have laughed out loud at the title of your post! That's about how I feel too!!! I also need and WANT to get into my classroom to get a head start on the madness!

  5. Um I didn't realize Tea and Coffee made those magnets! Score!!!!! I also need a set of those. I made some myself last year but didn't put the glass or whatever on top and they're definitely ruined.

    I am also obsessed with anchors! Love the theme!!!!

  7. Hoping your surgery is quick and painless. My female parts threw a fit in my 20's and it was not at all pleasant!! Can't wait to meet you next week!!
