August Currently

Wow! I can't believe it's already August!

I'm going to go a little out of order on these because the thinking one is my priority at the moment!

Thinking: I woke up yesterday in a PANIC because I realized it was August 1st. I get married in September. That's next month!!!! There is so much to do. So that's why that's my "thinking" in this month's currently. Thankfully it's all gradually coming together. All the big things are done and my first fitting for my dress is on Monday! So excited to marry my best friend, but so stressed about everything going perfectly.

Loving: My best friend got me HOOKED on this show called "Impractical Jokers" on TruTV. Seriously, I have never laughed so hard in my life. It's a hidden camera show where 4 guys who have been friends forever dare each other to do crazy things and they have to do them or they lose! I've seen them pick a stranger's nose... convince a stranger to let them clip their toenails... pretend to be a shoe salesman and say ridiculous things to customers... I can't even begin to do it justice, but it's definitely recommended!!!
Wanting: I've been told I hoard classroom books. I just love books and I love reading and reading everyone's blogs doesn't help because I hear about such amazing books! Right now I'm wanting the book Riptide the most because I heard about it from Carla at Comprehension Connection yesterday during the Thursday Book Talk linky party hosted by Andrea at Reading Towards the Stars.

Back to School Must Haves-

1. Tervis tumbler for all that coffee! I didn't used to be a coffee drinker. And then I became a teacher.

2. Thirty-one bag- this is something I don't have but desperately want.

3. Genre Labels from Ladybug Teacher Files (Who am I kidding, I want everything from her!)

Also, I am super excited to be involved in a blog hop that starts on Sunday! You can hop through a bunch of VA teachers' blogs and get a ton of freebies along the way! Here at Fourth Grade Lemonade, I'll feature a freebie and have a giveaway! Be sure to stop by on Sunday to start the tour :)


  1. 31 is like all the rage at my building! Everyone has lunch totes, bags, you name it! I must say they are adorable! Congrats on your upcoming wedding!
