Happy Friday!

Before I show you this month's currently, I must announce that we had some, ahem, "work done." A little nip tuck if you will. That's how we do it here in the OC! Hehee... well, we may not have gone "under the knife" ourselves, but we did give our blog a little makeover! What do you think?!

The nerd in me wanted to figure out how to make my own blog layout, so here you have it! It's still a work in progress, but at least it's in a more presentable state. I would like to thank bloggers such as I Teach. What's Your Super Power? and Mrs. Prince & Co. for sharing their tutorials and blog design insight. I also found some great tutorials on The Cutest Blog on The Block.

Designing our own look was so much fun and frustrating at the same time. :) The papers used in our blog design came from the fabulous Erin Bradley. I just love her papers!

Now, on to February's (is it really February?!) currently thanks to Farley from Oh' Boy 4th Grade. If you haven't been to her blog yet, go check it out!

I can't wait to take advantage of this nice weather and do something outdoors this weekend! 


                                 In-N-Out Burger. 'Nuff said.

  Laziness is a big pet peeve of mine whether it is from students or adults. Not to say I haven't ever been lazy myself, but it just bugs me when people do the bare minimum in life.

Rude drivers are another pet peeve of mine. One time a driver yelled some words at my husband, which I will not repeat on this blog, because he accidentally drove through a stop in a parking lot.  He actually helped this same woman load groceries in her car about 5 minutes before. Geez...

Whether you are a new or regular visitor to our blog, thanks for stopping by! Have a fabulous weekend!


  1. OMG In and Out burger!!!!! I lived in AZ for 2 years and loved it!! I talk to all my friends that travel to the States about it and wait for the day that I can have one again!!

  2. Love your Currently & so happy to be your newest follower. In & Out Burger huh?? Being in the south, we don't have those, but I have heard wonderful things.... I've been on a diet for 3 weeks, and I think I'd take a burger and fries from ANYWHERE :)

    And laziness?? Drives me crazy, too... hard to be lazy AND be a successful teacher (or student!) :)

  4. What is this amazingness that is an In-and-Out burger?! It looks amazing! Hmmm... so here's an idea: I come out there, you take me out to eat a burger, then I make you cupcakes?! DEAL!? Your newest follower!

    Mathematically yours,

  5. Very jealous of your weather and the burger! Happy to have found your blog!

  7. That laziness picture is too much! Hilarious! We've got a lil friend this year who puts forth -zero- effort so it's hard to know if they're just being lazy or if it's just too difficult. Hard to tell what they really know :(
    We have an In-n-Out way too close by so a trip might just be in our near future!

  8. I am really wanting a Five Guys Burger! I'm getting one tomorrow and I'm not counting those points/calories! ha

  9. Ya, I had pizza tonight, and it was great, 'cause it's Friday, and so we can have those wonderful things, like In & Out & pizza, right?

  12. Unfortunately, we get our share of bad drivers, huh! I feel your So Cal pain, ladies!! I absolutely love your new design. The header is adorable!! You did a great job! I got a 10 dollar In n Out gift card for Christmas from one of my kiddos. I went there and got a burger only to discover that it was actually a 20 dollar gift card! Right on! :)

    Happy February!!
