It's CURRENTLY....September 14'

Hello guys! I have been so out of it with the beginning of school, so excuse my absence. 
I won't vent about it now, but be on the lookout for an update. 

But of course I had to come out of hiding for Farley, and show some "Currently Love".

May I add she is the ORIGINATOR of this cute teachy link and I give her my FULL support with the situation she has found herself in with all the copycats. ....HANG IN THERE GIRLY!!!

I own Currently in the Classroom and plan on purchasing the update! Go support her and purchase her products on tpt. <---totally open up a new window and multi-task it now.


Anyways, what you have all been waiting for...........


Who else loves pre-crazy Lindsay? I absolutely love Parent Trap. It comes on all the time so I know all the lines. It is playing the role of background noise as I type/ allowing me to practice my British Accent, which may I be honest sounds like a Post Apocalyptic Eliza Doolittle.



I wish I took a photo (food porn, much?) of my breakfast this morning. It was my first time having an Everything bagel, and one word: YUMMY!!!

I have always loved how they smelled but never bothered to try them. SO today I made a sausage, egg and cheese bagel.

Best. Decision. Ever.


Yes, I am having one of those school years already. I maybe burned out because I taught summer school...idk. But I will be creating a countdown for my desk this week. 

:: pause:: Haley is piercing her sisters ears. It is hilarious to think about how she is talking to her self to create the dialogue for this scene. hahah ::unpause::


Teachers, do I need to explain? An added tidbit, I am single and I teach/live in the DC-MD- Metro Area. This area sort of requires dual income. #brokesville #prayforme


Not just for the added income, it is for my piece of mind. Creating things allows me to escape and do something I really love. I even created a separate blog for my art inspired items. More information will be available as I get things loaded on, but if you are interested in some of my Crayon Art, check out my Creations Tab.

3 Trips

I plan to make these three trips before I turn 35, which gives me about 5.5 years. The first trip will happen (Lord willing)for my 30th birthday in March. For those curious of Hogwarts, I meant the Disney Hogwarts and Hogsmeade.

I am hoping for Hawaii for my bday, Hogwarts next summer and Italy within another 2 or 3 years as my car/student loan debt decreases.

Wish me luck.

Okay so that is whats Currently going on with me. To hold myself accountable I feel compelled to include the RULES....I try to remember but, I sometimes do not comply and forget to comment 3 times on other pages(yikes!! seriously sorry guys)


  1. Awwwwww Parent Trap!!!!! Thanks for taking me back to some awesome memories with that one.

  2. I want to go to Hogwarts, too! It is on my list! Hope you get to go.

  4. Hi Emerald,

    I also found your linkup under Farley's Currently! Your blog is seriously fun and adorable! You will notice that my currently is also wanting my winter vacation. I get 3 weeks this year...I am beyond excited and have a countdown already! I may be a 3/4 combo teacher soon instead of a 2/3 combo due to over enrollment in my school, so I will DEF be coming to your blog for some ideas. I'm your newest follower!
