Currently ** January 2015

2015, seriously? Wasn't it just 2000?! In 2000 I was...
* A freshman in high school
* Turning 15
* Listening to 'N Sync, Christina Aguilera, Britney
* Watching Dawson's Creek, Gilmore Girls, ER, the final episodes of Boy Meets World and 90210
* Dancing on the first (and only) dance team at our high school
...oh my!! 
Okay, enough of that lovely flashback, I will withhold sharing scary photos of this point in my life. 

I am CURRENTLY wicked excited by making into Farley's linky in the first 30! That's a first! Woohoo!!
<< Insert happy dance here >>

Listening - For anyone following me on Instagram, I just finished Parenthood and I didn't want to start anything new because I need to focus on planning for the next couple of weeks, so back to an oldie but goodie, it is! 

Loving - A local college has an accelerated MBA program that puts student teachers in the classroom from January to the end of the school district's year (not the college's spring semester). So my student teacher, who is just about my age, will be gradually working up to a 2-week take-over, but will then stay with us a co-teacher for the rest of the school year. I am thinking that this could work out VERY well! I am so excited to plan for small groups and so much more with another teacher in the classroom! :o)

Thinking - January is going to be a busy month: Busy weekends - Patriots play-off tickets!, RETELL coming to an end and capstone project to complete, student teacher joining us. I would like to plan ahead, we'll see how this goes. Also, I cannot help but think about having about 9 weeks until testing starts...UGH!!

Wanting - For those of you who noticed in my little introduction, if I turned 15 in 2000, that means I turn 30 this April! Eeeeek!! I have very mixed feelings about this birthday. But I plan to make this year a fun and memorable one for sure! 

Needing - RETELL to be all done! Two more classes and a capstone presentation...I think I can, I think I can...

YES - I will run my first 5K for my school the day before my 30th birthday. 
MAYBE - It has been 3 years since I completed my Master's program and it's time to start something new. I am just not sure what something new will be. Sometimes I think about Administration, sometimes I think about a Doctorate in Education. Maybe this is the year to make a decision. 
I WISH - To expand my itty-bitty TPT store. This should be more than an I wish, but I just cannot find the time to sit down and create the way that I wish I could. Hopefully this turns out to be more and I become more accomplished on TPT, we'll see. 

Have a safe and fun New Year's Eve and Happy 2015 Bloggy Friends!! 


Sunday Scoop

It has been so long since I last blogged, that I was unaware of the Sunday Scoop linky, from Teaching Trio. I discovered the linky through Lisa over at Grade 4 Buzz and fell in love with the blog Teaching Trio. The ladies, Kristen, Juliet, and Cassie, have the most adorable blog going on. I am so glad to have discovered this little treasure! :o) Click on the link below to check out this brilliant blog and linky for yourself! 

Happy Sunday of Winter Break! Enjoy a free and careless Sunday night. Thanks for reading! 


New Year's Resolution and Goals for 2015http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-lWSy1uFy9r0/Ur9d0YHr2CI/AAAAAAAAPvs/Y2vC9Yhu6JA/s320/Slide2.JPG

OMG, I have been MIA for much too long! I'm pretty my last 4 or 5 posts have all begun that way, but as you will all notice, 2015 WILL bring me back to blogging. I was really loving it when I got started and am looking forward to making the time to get back into it. 

So what better place to start that by linking up with Jessica at Second Grade Nest to share my goals for 2015. 

I would like to take a class or two to earn credits towards my Master's +15. I am debating about a second Master's (in administration), CAGS, etc., but it wouldn't hurt to take a class or two before I decide my next step for sure. 

Blogosphere "profession" - I will blog at least twice a week, but hopefully 3 times a week! 

Get in shape! Get the gym/run at least 3 times each week. Also, I have been wanting to run a 5K (not much, I know...it's a start) and our school has one in April - that will be my first. 

I shouldn't even admit this, but I will be 30 in April and I don't cook. I can bake, I can handle apps, but dinners - YIKES!! I will learn to cook, and hopefully like it, this year! 

At almost 30, I have never been to Disney. This is the place that I would like to visit this year. 

Oh dear, I am not brave in trying new foods. If I'm trying to get in shape, I should try to eat healthier, so I'm going to say that I would like to try to improve my like for vegetables. 

I would like to learn how to sew. 

Craft. I love to be crafty, but I am always so busy that I don't do enough of it. I need to slow down and take more time to do the things I am pinning, instead of just pinning the pretty crafts! :o)

I already I mentioned that I want to run my school's 5K. I know this isn't huge, but I have never been much of a runner and I am pretty out of shape, so I think that my school's 5K, on the day before my 30th birthday, is the perfect place to start. 

Now, click on the link below to head over to Jessica's blog, Second Grade Nest, and share your Resolutions and Goals!
