July Currently

Hi All! I’m finding it so hard to believe that it is July already! In honor of the first full month of summer vacation, I’m linking up with Farley from  Oh Boy Fourth Grade for her Currently link up. Read all about what I’m up to!


Listening- When the show first started, I was a huge Army Wives fan. After a couple of seasons, my teenage interests got the best of me and all I watched was reality TV. With Hubs gone for the night, I decided to start season one all over again on Netflix.

Loving- You guys! Today was the first day where I actually sat down at the computer and got things done. *Sooo* many things. I’m hoping to keep it up and bring you some new products soon!

Thinking- It usually takes me all of half a day after summer vacation starts to start planning for the next school year. I thought I loved my classroom layout last year until I started moving things just to play around. Now I’m thinking about the space, sketching some maps, and trying to come up with some possible layout ideas.

Wanting- In the last four months, we have had five leaks in our house. Five! Luckily, only one caused serious damage. Two of those leaks have been from the washing machine and now we’re waiting on another part to hopefully fix the machine once and for all. Thank goodness for my amazing mom who took three loads of our laundry to her house to do. Love you, Momma!

Needing- I love crafting! I find it so therapeutic and fun. During the school year, it’s hard to find time for all the projects I want to complete. Now that it’s summer, a new wreath for the front door is in order. The bow on this one has just about had all it can take!


All Star- While I enjoy cooking, baking is my true love. My Kitchen Aid mixer is one of my most prized possessions...after my home laminator of course J While I have a few “go to” recipes, my oatmeal raisin cookies are the best!

So, those are my thoughts at the moment. Have you started tackling your summer to do list or are you easing into it like me? Be sure to check back tomorrow for a new post and a freebie!

  2. I'm working on my classroom layout for next year too because I'm moving to a new room. I love oatmeal raisin cookies. The oatmeal and raisins make them healthy, right? ;-)

    1. Blank slates are so much work, but so much fun! I keep telling everyone the oatmeal makes them healthy, but I think the only one I'm convincing is myself! Good luck in your new room :)

  6. Jennifer, oh do I love me some Netflix. I could have it on in the background all day. My latest obsession has been Scandal. I just finished season 4 and decided to start all over again. Your wreath is adorable. I want to try doing one of those for our front door. Thanks for the inspiration.

    1. Scandal is amazing!!! If I could be any TV character, I would be Olivia Pope! Good luck with your wreath! I'm sure it will be great!

  8. I loved Army Wives! I was a huge fan and so sad when it got cancelled. Definitely a binge-worthy show.
