Currently I'm Feeling Patriotic!

Hey Y'all! I cannot believe that it's already July! That means summer vacation is almost half-way over and it JUST started. No fair!
I've been enjoying my days off and have been feeling rejuvinated!
Some of you may know that I finally decided to join this decade and get an Instagram- woah! I'd love for you to follow my organizin' glitter obsessin' self @Shortandsassyteacher
Yesterday I also had the awesome chance of meeting some amazing Chicago area bloggers. They were all SO sweet and SO supportive.  What an amazing bunch of people!!!!
So without further ado.....
Listening: There is a CRAZY awful storm right now hitting Chicago.  I'm curled up in my blankets as I type this right now. EEEEKKK!
Loving: My summer morning routines...or lack there of! Sleeping in, morning walks, and juicing. That makes for a great routine to me...let's not forget my morning round of blog stalking and Pinning. :)
Thinking: I've been thinking about next school year, as I know all of you have been too. It's hard to not separate from my classroom, especially when I have so much on my To Do List.  Next year is going to bring a lot of positive changes for me.  So...let's do this!
Wanting: For summer to go on forever and never end.  I don't think many people would argue me on that.
Needing: A trip to see one of my besties! She's just gotten her first full-time teaching position!!! Ah! I can't wait to go and visit her and decorate her classroom! She knows I obsess over details like that and steps back and lets me do my thang...LOVE HER! By the way, did I mention she's going to be teaching Junior High Health?? Bless her soul.
4th Plans: The past few years my Dad and Brother's band has been asked to play in my hometown parade on the Village's float.  Last year they dressed up as Duck Dynasty boys and played country. This year they're doing a Blues Brother theme! Orange Whip!?
I can't wait to see what everyone else is Currently up to over at Farley's!


  1. Your family's band sounds so rad!! That's gonna be a fun time!! How terrible is the Chicago storm….!! I've been watching the news here in CA and seriously don't know what I would do in that kind of crazy weather!! Scary! Good luck! Be safe!

  2. Rain? Boooo, although here in CA, we are having a drought so send some over here. And I am sooo with you on the longer summer. When I first started teaching, we got 12 weeks off!! Now we only get 9 weeks off and we start in August. Bleah, I hate that. Have a great 4th.

  3. The family band sounds cool!!!! My dad was in a band, too!! They were called the Dinosaurs. ha ha. Junior High Health?? wow...you're right. bless her. My morning routine also now includes blog stalking. Your blog is ADORABLE!! I'm your newest follower. We seem to have a lot in common!!! :)

  5. My first day of holidays was Saturday and I already went out and bought an awesome shelf for my class in September! Lol! I hope you had a great day!

  6. I'm sad I missed the meet up. I didn't read the email until after the deadline and was bummed.

    How crazy were those storms last night?! I thought the whole house was going to blow over for sure!

  7. The very best thing in life would be if summer really did go on forever and EVER...Amen!
    I need to see pictures of the parade. Don't forget to take some...or else!
    Junior High Health? How are you going to help decorate for that? I can't wait to see what you come up with for your bestie! XO

  8. Your family sounds fun! :) Have a great 4th!

  9. Hey girl! I loved your instagram and all the glittery things I found in your pictures. I LOVE glitter (and need to use it more!). Morning routines are the best...mine involve coffee and blog stalking as well!
