Currently... 2015

I am linking up with Oh Boy 4th Grade for January 2015 Currently....

Listening:  Listening to songs on you tube to decide our wedding string quartet "playlist". I was never much of a "strings" person (played the saxophone growing up and like piano) ...but songs sound AWESOME on strings! Who knew?  I am searching popular "pop" songs on YouTube to ask our string quartet to play for the wedding ...and am getting excited about our picks!

Watch the video above if you wish.  You're welcome in advance. ;)


Needing: to finish planning two GT units for January. I planned out my lesson plans and units the old fashioned way (on notebook paper) during my vacation on the beach. I have two units in the works to teach in January/February...a language arts fiction writing unit for my grades 3-5 students and a STEM unit for my grades 6-7 students.  Look for more information on them later this month on my blog and TpT Store!

Wanting: our traditional Florida trip with the family was special ... I am wanting to go back!

Thinking: about and planning for all the exciting things coming up in 2015! {Professionally creating new units and lesson plans, working residentially as an academic dean for the summer at a college, weddings and trips in the spring and summer, and lots of special time with family and friends.} 

Loving: the new dress I rented from RtR for New Year's Eve! (We don't even have big plans.  I just love any excuse in to order RtR.)

A Wish: I have been working hard on growing my blog again and reconnecting with an online community of teachers (also through instagram and tpt) ...I hope and wish that this growth only continues in 2015!

This is the first time I've seen your blog. Super cute design. I majored in fashion and know about Rent the Runway but never knew someone that actually tried it. What designer did you rent? Happy New Year!
