March Currently!


So excited to link up with Farley over at Oh' Boy, Fourth Grade! for her March Currently!  I have loved reading these tidbits about you all, and couldn't wait to get in on the fun!

Here we go!

Listening...To Netflix! This week has been so. stinking. long. After making dinner and taking my crazy pup for a walk, I deserved some guilty pleasure television while I grade. (Notice I am also enjoying writing my blog post while I procrastinate my grading.) Have you ever watched "Chopped"? Netflix has a great compilation of the show's greatest episodes. I got rid of cable about 6 months ago, (HELLLOOOOO $$$$$$$) and really only miss my Food Network and HGTV shows. I love a good cooking competition! They make it look so easy!
(And yes, I watched a few episodes of my usual F.R.I.E.N.D.S, too. Don't worry.)

Loving...My Roomie! I have had some awesome roommates. I own my home, and have had a few different family members and friends stay with me. My current awesome room-dog, my cousin, turned the big 2-5 today. (I know...just a baby!) She is one awesome chick. She is a night-shift nurse at Cincinnati Children's Hospital, and I don't know how she does it. She is amazing! (She also watches my guilty t.v. and has been known to test out GoNoodle brain breaks with me.)

Thinking...About next weekend! I can't wait to travel to Indiana for our blogger meet-up! It's gonna be a big freakin' deal! (Because who wouldn't want to hang out with teachers all weekend?? We are cool.)

Wanting: A cookie. After neglecting myself for my job over the past few years, I needed a change. I have made some drastic changes to my health within the last year, and am pretty stinking proud of myself. Now, I am slowly working my way towards a Whole30. If you are not sure what I am talking about, you can check it out here. But first, finish reading. And follow me. And comment. And be my friend. Anyone finish their first Whole30? Any tips? Testing treats do not help.

Needing: I don't think this needs much explanation. My poor kiddos (and myself) are WAY off of our schedule. We like our schedule. And testing is boring. I am excited to start our algebra unit and second half of our solar system unit next week! Time to switch it up!

Spring Break Plans: I have been half way through painting some shelves in my downstairs den for quite some time now...hopefully I will have the gumption to finish those up! I am planning to take a little trip to see my brother and visit some family friends- the best way to re-fuel for the rest of the school year!

What about you? When is your break? We have three weeks left until our sanity week!
Who else will be at our blogger meet-up in French Lick, Indiana?
Enjoy your weekend, everyone!


  1. I can so relate to your needing a snow-free week! We have only been in school 7 days since February 13th! It is so difficult to be off schedule....for me and my kiddos!I

    I have not heard of the Whole30, but that is what I did back in September. I am diabetic, so I cut all sugar and grains from my diet. I have been eating only meat, veggies, fruits, and nuts since then. I feel so much better, and I can really tell a difference when I eat the bad stuff. We so often neglect our bodies for our jobs. Good for you for taking it back! Good luck with it!

  2. Lauren!
    I enjoyed your Currently post. Thanks for linking up with all of us! I will see you in French Lick! I can't wait!
    Dropping cable was awesome!!! Especially since Netflix picked up FRIENDS! Love it! But should eat that cookie you are wanting.


  3. Can't wait to meet you at French Lick this weekend!

  4. I had a great time getting to meet you this weekend in French Lick! I'm glad we got to share our gifts 4/5, but wish we had more time to talk with just 4/5th grade people! :) I did figure out how to add your blog favorites, so that is awesome! :) I hope you have a good rest of the year and I'm looking forward to following you in the coming months!
    Happy Days in 4th Grade

  5. Wasn't the blogger meet up sp much fun! I love your blog name, it's great!
