June Currently Link Up

Happy June! We made it! Haha. I can't believe it's already many things happening this month! PD trips/classes, vacations...crazy!

So I am linking up with the oh so wonderful Farley from Oh Boy Fourth Grade. Love reading her stuff :)

So here you go...

First of all, listening to "The Office". Love this show. Pretty sure Husband and I have watched it like a million times. Pam and Jim never get old though! :)

Loving that I have no school work to do this weekend! No papers to grade, bellringers/worksheets to make, activities to plan, things to's so nice, right?! It also gives me time to blog, which I have really missed. Been spending time with my fam this weekend, and it's so great to actually be here- not attached to my laptop or gradebook.

On that note...I'm also thinking about work tomorrow. Though the school year is over and my PD is complete, I volunteered to some literacy curriculum planning tomorrow and Tuesday. Although I'm not looking forward to getting up early (so spoiled already by summer break), I am excited about mapping out next year. We are moving to some Common Core Units that mesh Reading and Writing Workshops with Social Studies and Science. I think it's going to be awesome! Aaaaaaaand knowing ahead of time what we'll be doing gives me time this summer to whip up some cute matching centers/activities to go with everything. And you know I like that ;)

Wanting...a cupcake...of course. My baby sister graduated this past Friday (*sniff sniff*) and there are leftover cupcakes from her party calling my name from the kitchen. Must resist!!!

So naturally, I am needing to workout! Haha. Husband and I have been on a diet for a month or two and I've lost 10 pounds. And I loooooove that. Even if I hate dieting. And exercising. But, the more you do it, the more you like it. It's becoming a habit. A good habit, for once. Ha. And there have been so many inspiring Instagrammers helping me stay motivated! So that's that.

My Summer Bucket List...I talked a little about these things during my last post, but here you go again!
1. Go to Hawaii. Leaving in 25 days. Must. Workout. Must. Not. Have. The. Cupcake.
2. Read books! Always on my to-do list. Will preferably be completing this item at the pool ;)
3. And of course, keep being healthy. I don't care so much about the pounds I lose, but how I look and feel. I bought some shorts (yes, shorts!) yesterday that were a size smaller than usual. Things like that keep me going!

So how is your June looking? Make sure you head over to Farley's to share and link up.
Happy summer bloggies! 

P.S. Here's a picture of me and my sisters from this weekend. Love them!

  3. I am so jealous you are going to Hawaii! It is amazing. You will have so much fun. I have zero willpower so if there was a cupcake I would totally eat it……then maybe workout, or maybe not!

  4. Congrats on your weight loss so far! I'm needing to pick up some good habits too, having a support system or someone willing to go through the process with you is SUCH a help!
    Enjoy your summer!!!
