November Currently!

I am so glad Farley does this.

It gives me a chance to "kickstart" my blogging when I'm just about to fall off the train. :)

Friday night typically mean take-out and a lot of DVR watching. We've already made it through Modern Family (hi-LAR-ious), The League, Tosh.O and Brickleberry. Now, I do enjoy The League, but Tosh.O and Brickleberry are definitely my husband's picks. Hence, the blogging. :) 

I love, love, love football season. I play fantasy football with the hubs and in a teacher-blogger league as well. I'm super proud of my Georgia Bulldogs and Atlanta Falcons.We watched an AWESOME Georgia win over Florida last weekend with some longtime friends, and I still can't believe our Falcons are 7-0. Any other football lovers out there?

This time of year also makes me super-homesick. I am a family girl. Luckily, I married a family man. As soon as he is done peddling wine on Wednesday, we are headed to western North Carolina for a few days with my family. 

I think I have *about* 3 posts in draft but I can't seem to find the time to take pictures, finish the freebies and products and hit the "post" button. I feel like I'm just keeping my head above water these days. Hence, the need for FOCUS. If I could just sit down and get one thing done at a time - like this post! - I know I would be a happy girl. (It has been really hard not to put down my computer and go clean the kitchen. But I didn't!) :) 

Do you Spotify? You should. I have about a bajillion playlists. You can "drag and drop" practically any song in the universe into a playlist you create and listen to it over and over. It's like iTunes and Pandora got married and had an amazing baby. Only you can't upload anything to your iPod. Other than that it's pretty magical. You should check it out. We have a "Fun at School" playlist I created with the kids that I use for transitions, brain breaks and just plain fun. We add to it every once in awhile - you can even find kid-friendly versions of current pop songs on there - when they have a request or I come across something I think they'll like. 

Alright. That kitchen is screaming my name and nothing would make me happier than to see it clean when I wake up in the morning. 

I'll be back later this week with some fall freebies and (hopefully) and old new unit to tell you about!


  1. I haven't tried Spotify but I will go check it out. I am a lot like you... usually Farley's Currently gets me back to blogging. Hopefully I will keep it up! :)

  4. I love a fellow Modern Family fan! I wish my teams were doing as well in football as yours are. I guess you're only a fan if you can love a team whether they are winning or losing! I just started following your blog. I can't believe I haven't seen it up until now :)

  5. I need to check out Spotify! That sounds awesome. I can also relate to needing focus!!

    Enjoy your weekend!

  6. I believe football is its own season but I am a Bears fan. We are at the top of the league... YIPPEEE!! I do the same thing with draft posts... I have about 5 or 6 and they have been their for months and I keep pushing them back. Who knows when they will appear! So glad I am not the only one.

    Never heard of spotify... but I will give it a whirl!
