I'm linking up for the first time with Farley for her monthly Currently! So excited!

Listening to the Walking Dead (last night's episode). Does anyone else watch? I'm totally addicted! I never in a million years thought I'd like a "zombie" show, but I wish it was on every night! It's like a scary soap opera! :)

Loving that I finally reached my first milestone! It took me longer than I hoped, but I'm trying to be a more consistent blogger and share ideas and resources that I hope everyone enjoys. I'm having a great giveaway thanks to some great friends I've met! You have until Friday to enter to win some fabulous prizes! Plus, I'm participating in another AMAZING giveaway as well...scroll down to see more. It's so wonderful knowing that we are all here to help each other-I think of blogging as my "adult time".

Wanting more time! Where does it go? Has any teacher ever said, "Wow, I'm all caught up. What am I going to do for the next four hours?" NEVER! No matter how organized and on top of paperwork I try to be, there's always more to do. (It doesn't help that my mind races with new ideas constantly!) I have post-its and notepads everywhere to try to keep track of all my ideas! I can't even keep up with myself!

Needing/must have more closet space! I dread doing laundry because I have to squish my clothes on the racks...I'm not very good at purging clothes...well, my own clothes. I have several friends who have the rule: If you buy a new item, you have to get rid of an item. YUCK! Why would I throw away a perfectly great shirt? If I could get my husband to share a closet with one of the kids it would be perfect! Just kidding! Not really.

Like jammin' to any music! Dancing just puts everyone in a good mood! We have 1 minute dance parties all the time in our classroom-release some energy and put smiles on everyone's faces. Seriously, have you ever seen someone dancing who was mad??!! Nope, it spreads happiness!
Love jewelry! Costume jewelry-I love accessorizing! I like big, bold stoppers! When I wear my big rings I tell my students it's my Power Ring!
Hate jerks! Why are some people so mean? (They're probably not dancers!!!)

My friends Amanda & Stacia are having a HUGE giveaway! They'd love to have you drop by and enter!


  1. I'm here via Farley's linky - congratulations on 100 followers! That's a great milestone :)


  2. Congrats on making it to 100 followers! That's so exciting. :) I would love more hours in the day, too! :)

    Sugar and Spice

  3. I found you through the linky party. I've never seen that show, however one of my kindergarteners told me it was their favorite show! A little inappropriate for a 5 year old I am thinking just based on the name. I love jewelry too!

  4. Hi Joanne! I found you through Currently :) Congrats on your first Currently link up and reaching 100 followers! I'm pretty sure everyone except for me watches The Walking Dead... I should probably watch it sometime!! Have a great week!

    EduKate and Inspire

  5. Hello! I'm glad to find a fellow 4th grade teacher to follow as well! Congrats on your 100 followers! I can't wait to check out some of your posts!

  6. I SOOOO hear you about the closet space. My husband and I live in a little house that was built in the 1700s, when they apparently weren't big on closets. We have one that came with the house that isn't even deep enough for coat hangers, and one that my husband built me. Seriously- SO not enough space!! It's absolutely nutty. We're house hunting and lots of closet space is pretty high up on the wish list. Congrats on reaching 100 followers!! I found you through Farley's link up. :)

  7. I am obsessed with The Walking Dead. I DO enjoy horror, but this is so much more for the story line. I try to tell people that. It's addicting, and we're still not caught up on Sunday nights episode!

  8. Good for you! Way to go on 100 followers! Definitely a landmark worth celebrating. Happy to be your newest follower!

  10. Hey M! I just recently became hooked on The Walking Dead. I watched the entire first season on Netflix. I'm horrible at watching on a regular basis so I will have to wait until the new season comes out on Netflix. :(
    Congratulations on your milestone! You are for the world to find out how much!!!
    Dance parties?? I think I may have found a new idea. Thanks for sharing!
    You know I love you, but I'm going to stick up for your hubby because he's a great least let him have space enough for 10 days worth of shirts and pants. LOL
    Miss you and hope to see you soon! xoxox
