April Currently

I'm here to finally get linked up with Farley for her April Currently! Boy oh Boy, did this month sneak up on me! I suppose between April Fool's Day, report cards, and spring fever, it's no wonder that my mind has been occupied!

So, although it's already April 2nd, let's get this going!

Listening - I have to be honest here, although the first thing I heard was Family Feud on the t.v. in the background, my husband has now joined me and turned on another t.v. in which he is alternating between the Blues hockey game and The Big Bang Theory.  The nice thing about summer break is that I can usually manage about 3-4 solid hours of peace and quiet before my kiddos wake up and the t.v. gets turned on.  Silence.Sweet Silence.  It will be here soon enough.  I will enjoy the noisy chaos that is my home for now:)

Loving - I am FINALLY on Spring Break.  I have been green with jealousy reading everyone's IG posts about their incredible Spring Breaks thus far.  Although we are not going anywhere warm, sunny, beachy, etc. I am really looking forward to just hanging at home with my family.

Thinking - Although I have my master's degree already, I still am able to take additional classes and get credit for them with my school district {on my own dime of course}.  So, with so much going on this summer, I really need to sit down and commit to 1-2 classes so I don't fall off the wagon. One day I will be able to say that, unless I get my PhD {not happening} that I will never have to take another college class again.  Someday. Someday soon.

Wanting - to get on that cruise ship and relax!  I am taking my daughter on a cruise for her senior trip.  She is also a reader so we have already been making our book lists.  I am so excited to be able to spend this time with just her before she goes off to college. Not to forget about my husband, he will be joining me in Vegas after the TpT conference for a little mini-trip to celebrate our recent 20th Anniversary.  Yay for us!

Needing - annddd because of these impending little trips, I really need to get myself to the gym and ditch the junk food I've been indulging myself in. For whatever reason, I just cannot get myself to get back to the gym.  It's depressing. I have no one to blame but myself.  I will get in gear.  Right after Easter.  We'll see.

EGGS-plain Your Name - The Scoop in Second Grade - I have been wanting to join this blogging/TpT/IG journey for quite a while.  I kept telling myself that I just wouldn't even know where to start.  One night this name just came to me.  I know it's not very original.  I probably didn't 'research' it enough to ensure that it wasn't already taken.  In fact, I think there a TpT seller that uses this name {I found this after the fact}. My TpT store is my own given name so I thought it would be ok if I didn't change everything else.  So, I stuck with it.  Now that I have my own custom blog design done, I LOVE it. It truly does inspire me to blog more.  I am trying:)

Well, that's it.  April 1st has come and gone.  By the time we get through Easter break, we'll be well on our way though the month and May will be here before ya know it.  See you all then!


  1. Cute blog! I found you from Farley's Currently link up. My Spring Break started this afternoon. I was totally jealous of all the other teacher peeps that kept posting their Spring Break pics weeks ago! It was too hard to wait! So glad it's finally here! That's awesome that you and your daughter are taking a special trip together. I bet you both will have so much fun! Enjoy your break!

  2. Happy Spring Break, isn't it great?! You have some fun trips coming up. I love cruises, have you gone before? How fun to go with your daughter before she goes to college, great memories! Happy soon to be 20th anniversary, that is very exciting. I have been tossing around the idea of going to the conference in Vegas. I have enjoyed connecting with so many teachers on Instagram and it would be great to meet in person. I will have to see, if not this summer definitely next summer! I am currently taking grad classes right now too so I feel your pain. I hope to take my last few this summer so I can be done! That will be a great feeling, we can do it, we can do it! :) Enjoy the rest of your spring break and April!

  3. I love your blog design! So bright!
