I'm linking up with Farley at Oh Boy 4th Grade for Currently, and I am currently up way too late!

I listen to ONE station on Pandora all the time. Thunder Clatter by Wild Cub. I love that song. It makes me want to run 10 miles. Or tap my foot. Depends on the day. Anything that plays after that is fine with me. Walking on a Dream just happened to be on as I typed. The video is just odd. lol :)

I just celebrated my annual 29th birthday, and I LOVE my fancy shmancy coffee maker.

via Sur la Table aka HEAVEN
I picked the Bonavita 8 cup based on one too many Youtube review videos. (Yes I know the Moccamaster is the best but this was less expensive and still AMAZING.)  I've mentioned before I wake up an hour earlier than needed so I can enjoy 2 BIG cups of coffee. This baby is beautiful. It was so fun to make a big pot of coffee and relax with my family this past weekend.

Moving. Can I get a BLAH-MEN? I came home to one of those lovely letters from the leasing office reminding me my lease is up in July. Silly me. I thought I had til September (oops).  I am not in the mood to move or apartment hunt, but thanks to Exxon, the prices here are climbing.  Maybe I should move to France?  Anyone need a roommate? Must love Schnauzers and coffee.

Let's just be honest. If tomorrow were the last day of school I would cry tears of JOY. I am ready for a break. I've been running on fumes this week thanks to being sick and I think it is time to move on. I am trying to plan as many crafty and hands-on activities as I can to keep me motivated (oh and the kids too!!! lol).

I just realized that it is time to get a mani and pedi so I can start wearing my favorite shoes! Time to Treat Yo Self ladies! I'm currently sporting this awesome shade, but I need toes to match!

Besides going to Vegas for TPT and SDE this summer, I hope to take a Girls Trip with my mom. I am thinking Northern California or San Francisco. Any good ideas? We want to avoid the Texas heat!  After finding out I won't be teaching summer school (boo 3 day conference messing up my plans) I have a lot of time available in June and July to get organized for next year. This is my #1 goal. I want to start things off in August feeling well-prepared! Has anyone else been inspired by Miss DeCarbo's posts about prepping for August? She makes me want to get it done!

Last summer I went on an amazing kayaking trip off the coast of Washington. I want to go again but somewhere new. I want to avoid the Texas heat! Any ideas?  I love exploring new places!

What are you up to in May? I'm off to cheer on a friend in a triathlon tomorrow, and then a winery tour on Sunday!

Happy Weekend Lovelies! You've earned it!


  1. I hear you on being burnt! I'm so there, too. Total survival mode at this point. I'm super jealous you are heading to Vegas this summer! That's on my summer 'dream' list. If you make it to San Francisco this summer, look me up! That's where I live and I can give you some tips on places to go. :)

    1. Andrea! I rewrote my post while you were reading! LOL I would love to come to SF. I have a good friend in Berkley and it is on the top of my wishlist. I am really only going to Vegas to see all my internet buddies! lol The conference is just a good excuse. :) You should come to Vegas and skip the workshop!

  2. Love anything to do with the water, Kayaking sounds amazing. Good luck making it to the end of the school year. I'm sure the coffee machine will help that as well :)
    Sheri :)

  3. That coffee maker looks amazing!!!! But I am horrible at making coffee. I would totally recommend San Francisco. I went last summer to California for two weeks. The weather was fabulous. San Francisco has so many wonderful places to explore, too. The escape from the Texas heat was a blessing in itself. Happy trip planning!

  4. Thanks for the link to Miss DeCarbo - her posts always inspire me!
    I laughed through reading this post...& did some head nodding for the tears of joy :)
    I need new running music asap! Off to go check out your Pandora station.
    Thank you! Jen

  5. Aawww... Sorry that you have to move! My parents are moving to the farm next door in June... oh my! You never really know how much "stuff" you have until you have to cram it all in boxes. I hope that you can find a nice place to live! Enjoy your summer!

  6. Moving? Wow, put on an extra pot of coffee and crank the music up!!

  7. I love your blog--the design, your name--it is just so bold and different!! I love Empire of the Sun but never heard of Wild Cub--will have to check out!!

  8. San Francisco is amazing!! It would be a great place to visit, and for sure would get you out of the heat!! Vegas will be a blast too!! Good luck on the apartment hunting! Here's hoping you find something quickly and amazing!!

  9. Moving stinks! I hope you find what you are looking for. I need a mani/pedi as well-it's finally warm enough in New England to show off the toes!

  10. If you are planning on going to Nor Cal... let me know!! I just love the coast and lived in Arcata for 8 years. I miss it everyday!

  11. First of all, I LOVE your blog design! Also, I love the song Thunder Clatter!! It's one of my pump-up songs when I'm getting my classroom/lessons ready in the morning.
