Five for Friday ~ Feb. 5


Happy Friday!  I'm excited to be back and joining in on one of my favorite linky parties Five for Friday.  Thanks, as always, to the wonderful Kacey from Doodlebugs Teaching for hosting a way for all of us to catch up with each other and connect weekly.

Let's get started...

Technically this happened last week.  But I haven't blogged in forever so I figured this was still relevant.  This was all ours.  All our crates of stuff from the Bahamas.  The kids are happy to have their toys and belongings.  Now our new house is beginning to feel like home.  

While we were happy that our sea shipment arrived... much arrived damaged, missing, and/or broken.  This is how they packed my husband' bike.  :(

I've started subbing.  My first sub job was for a third grade classroom across the hall from my daughter's classroom.  It was a great day.  I had fun.  I have to admit that it was nice having the plans all done for you and being able to just go home at the end of the day without worrying about anything.  Being an overachiever and anchor chart obsessed I did some charting with the kiddos on main idea and supporting details and on graphing/data collection.  

Tonight we have small group for the church that we attend.  We started going last week.  I'm bringing a bit of the Bahamas for dinner tonight... Bahamian Macaroni and Cheese.  YUM!!! One of my favorites from living there the past 2 years.  This is the best recipe I've found.  Try it...I'm pretty sure you'll love it!

I've been working on updating some products lately.  I haven't had time to do anything TpT related for a couple of months so it felt good to go back and revamp some products.  Some just got new covers, others got new fonts, more pages, etc...  Click on any of them to read more about them in my TpT store... or if you own them, go and re-download to get the most updated versions.

Happy Friday!

Currently... February 2016


I'm back!  Back from the land of huge international moving, that is.  I figured no better way to get back to blogging with a Currently, right?  Thanks to Farley for hosting this fab link-up.  Here's what I'm up to currently...

Nothing better than the 80s right?  Best. Music. Decade. Ever.

We have been in our home for about 6 weeks now.  We finally got our shipment of our stuff from the Bahamas last week.  While much is damaged or missing we are happy to have our stuff.

I'd never wish a teacher to get sick but I need to work!  I'm subbing on my husband's days off right now and I need to work Thursday and Friday.  I'm not saying they have to get sick... maybe just a mental health day??

I really want to finish getting my office put together.  It's hard when you move.  You just want it all right away.  Baby steps...

I NEED to work on my resume.  The hiring pools open this week for the district I want a job in for the Fall.

I'm in love with our down quilt.  Seriously.  I have been sooooo cold coming back to winter weather after living in the Bahamas.  Under my quilt is my happy and warm place.  Swoon!

What are you up to currently??
