Hi there Friendlies!

I'm linking up with Farley over at Oh Boy 4th Grade! for her monthly currently. Wahoo! Here we go!

Listening: First of all, Spotify. Holy cats, ya'll. I don't know what I did before downloading this little baby onto my iPhone and's basically this app where you can make all of your own playlists and also listen to "radio" based on different songs. It's like...if iTunes and Pandora had a baby and named it Spotify. Love. It. Also, I upgraded to the premium which means for 9.00 a month, I can make as many playlists with as many songs as my little heart desires :) The best part? You can make your playlists available offline, so you can listen to them whenever. I'll give you all a minute to stop hyperventilating :)

Loving: Have you all heard of IT'S AMAZING!! I recently decided on a whim to redo my apartment and that, of course, meant finding new fabric. I scoured Hobby Lobby, JoAnne Fabrics, and all sorts of other places but was met with disappointment. Then, I found spoonflower. These fabrics are deliciously adorable. I can't handle them. My mom and I were gonna make pillows out of the patterns we ordered, but when the fabric came in it was so pretty we decided we're going to frame it and turn it into wall art instead haha 

Thinking: Where. Did. Summer. GO?! That is all.

Wanting: I really am just itching to get into my classroom. I was able to get a few things done before the floor waxing process started, but haven't been able to stop by in a couple of weeks. Don't get me wrong, I get that a clean school is mondo important. That being said, I am chomping at the bit to get organized. haha

Needing: TO PACK. I am a procrastinator when it comes to packing and unpacking. I don't know what it is about packing and unpacking but I just cannot make myself do it. haha That being said, hopefully the wedding of one of my very best friends will prove motivational enough to pull myself away from Grey's Anatomy re-runs and towards my waiting suitcase. 

B2S Must Have: *These* Paper Mate Pens. These are, in my humble opinion, the perfect grading pens. They don't bleed through, they don't smudge, and there are so many pretty colors! Win. 


  1. Thanks for the fabric tip. Going to check it out now. I need new pens.

  2. I think I saw Spoonflower on a Young House Love post...I think it would be so neat to design a fabric where all my kids drew their faces and wrote their names and I made a pillow out of it.

  3. I love those pens too! They are perfect. I am a new follower.

  5. I love those pens too! They make me feel like a teacher!

  6. Ooo where did you get the pens? I LOVE PENS! :) Why can't they wax the floors IMMEDIATELY after we all leave. This seems to be the problem in August every year. June should be national wax school floors month.
    Glad I found you through OH Boy 4th Grade

  7. Oh my goodness! I just visited spoonflower and am hooked! Geesh! I could get into some serious trouble there! Thanks for sharing!
