Currently July

My pencil sharpener giveaway with Classroom Friendly Supplies has ended.  Thanks to everyone who entered.  I'm verifying the information now and will post about the winner soon...I promise!!
Okay, so it's not technically July yet.  Farley is getting a jump start by hosting her Currently linky a few days early.  Here's what I'm up to right now:

So, I was listening to Beat This Summer by Brad Paisley.  Let's get real, it's  like a 4 min. song and there's no way I can create a blog post that quickly.  However, it's getting a lot of action on my playlist right now and it was the song that was on when I started filling out my Currently.  If you haven't seen the music video for the song you should search for it.  It's super cute!

We do not have family in town.  The closest family we have is almost 3 hours away.  So every once in awhile we get a chance to have our little one spend a day or two with her grandparents.  Not only do they get some quality time with her one-on-one, but it gives us a time to relax and enjoy each other.  We got out and did some sea kayaking, taste tested some brews at some local tap rooms, and enjoyed a few uninterrupted meals.  I'm excited to hug my little one tomorrow :)

I have been thinking about my Erin Condren planner for a few weeks now.  I watched and stalked pictures of the teacher planner for several months.  Then I took advantage of a fabulous deal during Teacher Appreciation Month and snagged a planner of my own.  I chose July as my starting month, so I am anxious to dive in and get to using it...a lot!!

Remember how I said our closest family was almost 3 hours away?  Well, that's my in-laws.  My family is a little more than 5 hours away.  Luckily, I get to see them this month.  We usually only get 2 or 3 visits a year so we try to make them longer visits.  Now I'm just counting down the days until that visit.

I made a big TpT goal for the summer.  I wanted to beef up the number of book units I have since they are some of my best selling items.  I chose a few popular series and I am working on getting them read and getting the files made and uploaded to TpT.  Right now I have been working on adding to the Horrible Harry series.  Then I will be working on the Magic School Bus chapter books.

Tips, Tricks, or Hints
I love reading what tips, tricks, or hints other people have about blogging.  I remember feeling absolutely clueless when I first started.  I had no idea what to share because I couldn't believe anyone would actually read it.  I started following many blogs, but found I couldn't keep up with everyone all the time and still have a life outside of blogging.  So, I started to slowly tune in to blogs I felt more drawn to and formed friendships.  In time, I am starting to find my path on this crazy journey. Personally, I'm a person who loves a good linky party.  They help me find new bloggers and learn more about my currently blogging buddies.

I'm thinking about that planner as well! Just don't know if I can justify the expense. Found you through Farley!

Super cute blog, I found you through Farley. My family is also 3hrs away and they love to have the kiddos for a few days in the summer. My time is in the last week of July. I am counting down the days. I love my kiddos and miss them while they are gone, but the uninterrupted meals, no bathtime, and peace and quite are to die for!! Hope you have fun with your family this month. Happy 4th!!

I bought a planner/calendar last year and I have to say I didn't really use it. I am so use to using my phone's calendar that I didn't like carrying the big calendar every where. It was super cute, but I don't buy another one. I would say just make sure you would use it before you buy it because it is pricey.

I have been eyeing the Erin Condren planners for awhile now. They are a bit on the expensive side but if it saves me from carrying three binders around all year then the price could be justified.
