Currently: February

I don't know that I've ever been so excited for February.... mostly because that means January is over :) One month down... I think I can, I think I can!  I'm going to make this quick because it's been a LONG week... I'm linking up with Farley for February's Currently (even though it's still January for another 30 minutes!)

Listening: Ok let's just all admit it.... who out there DOESN'T love Jimmy? I have a major crush on him.... I'm so excited that he's taking over the Tonight Show! Now I can watch him every night while I try to fall asleep :)  Did you see his FULL HOUSE video the other night?? Hilarious!!  Tonight Utah even got a shout-out during the monologue :) woot-woot! (and just for the record, I am equally excited about Seth Meyers taking over Late Night... he's so cute and hilariously funny!)

Loving... ummm, yeah.... if you haven't tried these before, you are SERIOUSLY missing out!! But really, don't buy them.... you will get addicted.  It's dangerous!  This is my second bag (notice, I haven't cut into it yet... I'm not sure how much longer that will last).  I actually buy a few extra bags the day after Valentine's day (because target puts them on clearance).... yeah, it's a BAD addiction...

Thinking: I have nothing to put here... I stared at my computer for a good 5 minutes trying to think of something... anything.... nope... just thinking that I'm tired.  This week has been LONG (this was my first 5-day week after  two 4-day weeks in a row.... why is 5 days so much harder than 4?)

Wanting: I bought myself a silhouette cameo for my birthday & christmas this year.... and guess what?? IT'S STILL IN THE BOX :( I am so ashamed.... I really want to learn how to use it!!  One of my friends is supposed to help me soon. I have so many ideas, but no time to sit down and figure it all out. One of these days...

Needing: I think that "thinking" and "wanting" explain it all... I just need a day all to myself! There's something about 3-day weekends that just leave me feeling so much more refreshed (sadly, the next break is still 2 weeks away... and we have parent-teacher conferences prior to the long weekend, so it will be a LONG "short" week!)

And finally... two truths and a lie... what a FUN idea!! Any guesses what mine are?!?  Ok, here we go.... 
1. TRUTH!! YES, I really did meet Jay Leno!!  It was so cool!  My friend and I went to a taping of his show, and after standing in line for HOURS, and thinking we weren't going to get in, then they came and pulled us to the front of the line, and took us to some seats right up at the front of the audience!  Jay came out before the taping to do a Q&A session, and I decided to be brave and ask for a photo to take back to my students... unfortunately they don't let you use your NICE cameras in their studio, so all we got was a Polaroid picture :( (don't judge... it's a TERRIBLE photo!)

2. LIE.... Even though I live in Utah, home of the "greatest snow on earth" as our license plates say, I've NEVER been skiing... can you believe that?!  I'm pathetic, what can I say??
3. TRUTH... yup, I'm a southpaw. I know you're jealous.  I have my dad and grandma to thank for this one...  at least I can say I'm always in my right mind! LOL... 

So there you have it... what are you most looking forward to this month??


  1. I have never been skiing either! I am not really a fan of cold weather though lol. Those Herseys look awesome! I have never seen them in Australia though so maybe thats a good thing ;)

  2. I got a Silhouette for Christmas from myself and I have YET to use it!! Want to work together to figure out how to work it?! LOL I have sooo many projects built up that I just need to get it out and work it. I hope you find time to figure out how to use it, too - Pinterest has links to soooo many cool projects, especially for teachers!

  3. I feel you on the long week. We were supposed to have a 5 day week this week but ending up with roughly 2 days after one early dismissal, 2 days off and a 2 hour delay. When I went to school on Friday, I felt like I hadn't worked enough to make it Friday. By the end of Friday, I felt like all 5 days of that week had taken place in the last hour :)

  4. I love my lefties- which are my dad and my sweet daughter! It is so funny because my dad's handwriting is horrible. I remember my mother told me that I should force my daughter to learn to use her right hand. I think she was afraid that my daughter's handwriting would look like his. But, her handwriting is beautiful.
