February Currently

Happy Super Bowl Sunday!  Are you a football fan?  I'm really a half-time show kind of person.  Give me a sparkly skirt and a marching band and I'm in heaven.  I always had dreams of being the drum majorette in high school, and then I went to a high school that didn't have a marching band.  So there went that dream!

Anyway, as it's the first of the month I'm happily linking up with Farley to share what's going on in this head!

1. How does her hair stay so perfect in the midst of all that dust, dirt, and construction apparatus? Blows my mind.  My hair looks great for the first 5 minutes after I style it, and then it's all downhill.

2. Speaking of hair, I needed to try something new in the styling department.  I have medium/long brown hair that is thick, but very very fine.  It rarely holds a curl or volume, but I want Duchess of Cambridge hair.  So I looked up some tutorials on youtube, and everything pointed to a styling brush.  It's like a blow dryer, brush, and curling iron in one.  I've been using it for the past few weeks and am so amazed with how shiny and bouncy it makes my hair.  Almost Duchess style...more like Pippa at this point but I'll take what I can get!

3. My husband ordered a state-of-the-art treadmill for us to use.  I noticed that with the cold weather I wasn't walking Lacey as much- just letting her out in the yard.  This one has an ipad-type thing built in, a heart monitor, and it can even walk for you!  Just kidding.  But I'm really excited about the fact that I can read and blog while I walk!

4. And by decorate I mean change the frame that still has FALL in it and put up a V-Day print. Any day now.

5. After February 28th, I will not be teaching any more.  I'm still going to be at school, and my title will still be teacher, but no teaching will come out of me.  In other words, testing has taken over my spring schedule.  Here's a rundown: 

1st-3rd weeks of March: testing
1st week of April: spring break
1st-3rd weeks of May: testing
June 14: last day

So, no pressure on this month.  Just have to fit in EVERYTHING I need to teach before the 28th. Wish me luck.

6.  I know I mentioned wanting to be a drum majorette, but what I really wanted to be when I grew up was a lawyer or an ambassador.  I minored in French and International Studies in college and was pretty sure I'd go into foreign affairs.  I've always been interested in diplomacy, and loved taking courses on it in college.  Those courses have served me well on my journey to be an administrator; I'm never quick to take sides and I can (usually!!) make an informed decision after hearing both sides of a situation.  

That's it for my Currently, but before you go, take a look at these brand-new resources to my TPT shop.  They're on sale just for today!

Have a great month!


  1. I totally hear ya on the halftime show. I'm so not into the game, unless of course my PACKERS are playing! Still can't believe they lost that game... But I was in Colorguard in high school (you know the ones twirling the flags) and I taught the squad at my local high school for 10 years until I got pregnant :) So much fun!

  2. It's nice to meet you, Maria! I also would love to maximize my time! Decorating for Vday is always so fun! :)

  3. I'm excited for the half time show. The nerd in me cannot wait to see the new Jurassic World 30-second trailer that is debuting during the half time show. EEEEKK!

  4. Heck, I'd take Pippa's look ANY day! :)

    Way too much testing going on in NJ! Ugh!

  5. Can't wait to see the hair all done up! I expect some fancy Valentine's Day pictures! I feel your pain on the testing. I am the resident PARCC makeup administrator. Then, I will DRA my life away until the next PARCC. At least we can commiserate together!
