Kindergarten Here I Come!

I have been anxiously awaiting the day when I could write this blog post since starting my blog nearly 2 years ago. That special day is finally here! I received my official job letter in the mail and I am so very happy to say that I will be a kindergarten teacher this fall!

Never would I have ever imagined that as a college graduate, in one of the worst economic times, that I would have a public school teaching job and even more, actually have to turn down other job offers! There is nothing more I can say than I am truly blessed! I know that teaching is where I am meant to be and I am so happy to be able to fulfill that childhood dream of mine!

I have so much to do to get prepared in so little time! (Hence the reason I have been quite M.I.A. on my blog lately.) I have been making a long list of all the things I have to prep and I have no idea when I will be able to see what my classroom looks like. 

Leave me a comment below with something I must include in my preparation checklist so I don't leave anything out! Also, if you are a kindergarten teacher, leave me a comment with a link to your blog so I can get inspired!

Now I am off to continue my trend of stalking Pinterest and buying from TpT like a mad woman!

Currently July

It's kind of crazy to believe it is July already! Summer just started not even a week ago and here we are in July. When you go to school until the last week of June you kind of feel like your got the short end of the stick.

Nevertheless, I am linking up with Farley once again. This time around I am fashionably late, aka time has no meaning to a teacher on summer vacation.


Listening: My nightly summer TV routine always features Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy. Have to keep that mind sharp! Don't want the summer slide am I right?

Loving: There is nothing like summer vacation after a long 180 days in the classroom! I am soaking up every minute of sunshine and relaxation!

Thinking: I am hosting this font themed linky party...

I may have downloaded nearly 1,000 fonts after searching through the link up. If you want to find some new fonts or link up, click the picture to join!

Wanting: I posted this picture on Instagram this morning...
That was the total price of all the items on my wish list as of 1pm. The total may have gone up another hundred dollars in a matter of hours. I might have a problem!

Needing: I really think I want to try some Jamberry wraps. I painted my nails and they were chipped literally in a matter of minutes. I would love to start off the new school year with some fancy non-chipping nails! What are your favorite designs?

4th plans: The fireworks and BBQ have been cancelled due to the impending storm. Better safe than sorry! At least they will be rescheduled!

Happy 4th everyone! Hope you enjoy time surrounded by family and friends!
