OK, friends, who pressed the fast forward button on April? Where did it go?! I can't believe that it's May already. State testing starts next week and the school year is winding down. It is over 90 degrees today, so I am really starting to feel ready for summer to get here! Go link up with Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade to join in on the fun!

Listening- to absolutely nothing! I feel like I always say this for the listening portion of Currently, but I guess I always type these things when nobody is around.

Loving- The weekend is just about here and I am excited because the hubby and I have no plans! I love when this happens. It seems like we've had something going on every weekend for the past month and this weekend we can actually relax and enjoy the nice weather.

Thinking- I think this was one of the fastest school years of my teaching career. It seems like the year goes by faster and faster with every new school year. Does this mean that I'm getting old?!

Wanting- I am an overly ambitious person. I have way too many goals, both personal and classroom related. I know making goals is a good thing, but I seem to have so many that they are unable to be reached. At least not all at once as I would like! Because of this, I feel like I hardly get anything accomplished at all! I guess it's the ADD and OCD in me! :)

Needing- Hey, I love food. What else can I say???

Summer Bucket List-

1. Cupcake Challenge: so, there are a few popular cupcake places around here and I've enjoyed cupcakes at each of them, but I can't seem to decided which place has the best.  I have decided that I want to buy the same flavor of cupcakes from all three places and do a blind taste test on each cupcake to determine which place makes the best. Kind of like my own personal Cupcake Wars. Stacy, the co-author of this blog, will be joining me in this feat! Maybe we'll post about it once we finish- haha!

2. Create Units: ok, well, I'm the nerd that wants to work on school stuff over the summer.  I have too many things that I've created over the years that need to be spruced up and uploaded to TPT! I've been wanting to do this for a long time, but it is so, so time consuming! I just don't understand how so many of you get it all done!

3. Beach- enough said.

Well, I'm off to go find some new blogs to stalk. Hey, do you think that maybe by blog stalking might have something to do with my inability to get stuff done? Perhaps all this blog reading takes up some time (hehehe!). Oh well, I love reading and learning from all of you. Don't forget to link up with Farley to participate in this month's Currently!


  1. Silence can sometimes be golden, and those cupcakes look fabulous. Yum! I know I'm always distracted from finishing things because I want to blog stalk.

  2. cupcakes!!! I love food too! A little too much! I would love some silence! I don't even know what that sounds like anymore!

  3. MMMMM.... cupcakes!!! Except I went to the doctor today and she said I needed to lose about 15 pounds. Um, lady, that's not very nice to say! So eat a cupcake for me, will ya?! I have self-diagnosed ADD and I'm a perfectionist too... I set a goal for myself to upload one item per month. I have no idea how other sellers do it too, but one thing per month isn't overwhelming. If I end up doing more than that, then YAY for me!

  7. I love cupcakes, I can take or leave ice cream but can't pass up a cupcake! I wish I could learn to make that awesome frosting they put on top....maybe this summer. Enjoy your challenge.
