currently time for a bloggy break

it's already august and time for currently. I never even made it to doing July!
thanks Farley for making the beginning of each month a little more fun!

listening-always to boys
loving-I really do love the B2S prep. It gets my butt in gear!
thinking-I'm off to the Carolina bloggers meet-up this afternoon! I booked a king suite all by myself! Woot! Not that I don't love the girls, I just like my own bed!
wanting-as much as I love the decorating, I have trouble stopping and adding stuff I see on your blogs and instagram. I need it to end!
needing-see below
must haves-gotta get my hair did {it's not at all blonde fyi}, ink for my printer. I'm outta control!, and I LOVE love love my new buddy binder I bought from creekside teacher tales! It's full of math and ELA games for buddies to play! I cannot wait to get it all setup...thus the ink again! She set it up so well and the description makes mine laughable! So much work went into this. I yes, I did BUY it. Not a gift from Tracy! Worth every penny!

so here's my needing...
I don't know about y'all, but I am a little too overwhelmed by blogland lately. I cannot tell you how many giveaways I've entered, meant to enter, or didn't win
I think Denise said it best...Everything is a bash, bundle, basket, bushel, giveaway, hop, swap, flash freebie. it's hard to keep up!
She's hilarious by the way.
i've been really lucky to get to know my Owl ladies a lot better!

So I am on a little hiatus for this week. 
I need to get my focus on and finish my classroom, spend some time with my boys out of the house and off the computer!
of course I'll be stopping in for emails and instagram {because I may be addicted to it!} 
but before I head out to pack...don't forget to enter my FREE glasses giveaway and go and pick up the back to School bundle on educents! both good for another week!
That's all the giveaways and bundles for now!


  1. oooooh, that buddy binder looks cool. I'm going to check it out!

  5. I totally get what your saying about a blogging break! I keep seeing amazing stuff that I want to keep adding on and I just can't do it all!!!!! Have a wonderful time at your bloggy meet up!

  6. I am checking out those Buddy Binders. Thanks for sharing, Heather

  7. I have got to get off the computer more, too. I keep finding great blogs to follow and the sheer number now overwhelms me...wonder if I can whittle it down to a more reasonable number? (Don't worry...yours will still make the cut!)

  8. Breaks are important! My hubby has had to curb my time spent blogging/reading blogs. This is actually the first time I've really checked blogs all week, which has been kind of nice. Good luck getting your room done! I love seeing your progress on Instagram. It looks fabulous!

  10. You are cute girl!!!! Why no pics of the hair???

  11. I'm totally with you on being overwhelmed by the giveaways, blog-hops, back-to-school everything. I don't report back until August 28 so I'm really in zero hurry to get things moving. Blogland can be tiring this time of year for sure.
