Currently August

August has arrived!  I really wish we could have held it off for a little while longer, but it didn't ask me.  This month is going to be exciting, fun, stressful, sad, and thrilling all rolled in to one. Lots of things happening, so ready or not August is here!

I am linking up with Farley.

I should have known the thunder would bring RAIN!  I think rain has become the newest disliked four letter word for many folks in North Carolina this summer.  Another inch (should I say five) is pouring down tonight.
What more needs to be said, I love not having an alarm set for the morning.
Thinking and Needing
I am so excited about the Carolina Blogger Meet-up this weekend.  It is going to be so much FUN!!! I just need to pack my bag for the weekend.


I want to have my room finished!  I need to finish arranging, decorating, and organizing.  Then, I can work on the planning during!
B2S Must Haves
1. A great teachers bag.  I received one similar to this as a gift from a student last year.  I love it!  It is a Thirty-one bag.
2.  Colorful Pens make grading papers so much more FUN!


3. An adorable lunch bag makes those healthy lunches just a little more yummy!  I am still on the lookout for a new one.  I saw this one on Target online.  Not sure that I love it!  Where do you find your lunch bag at?

Happy August!!!!!!!!


  1. Is that the Super Organizing Tote? I just had to upgrade from the Organizing Utility Tote cuz it was just too small for all my teacher stuff lately, lol!

    And there is truly nothing like a brand new set of pens, especially flair pens, sigh....

    Enjoy your B2S adventures & planning!

  2. Hi!I just found your blog form a comment you left on Polka Dot Kinders- it made me want to come right over- because I know how you feel wanting to get so much done, but spend time with your daughter before she goes to college! Mine gets back from an internship on the 16th- and I am determined to have so much done so I can relax and spend time with her, too!
    I'm your newest follower! Love the Thirty-One bag pattern- and I LOVE listening to thunder! :)

  3. I looove my lunch bag :) It's a 31 owl bag! I definitely agree with you there, and a good teacher bag :) I love purple and green pens, they are my favorite!!


  4. Oooh! I can't believe that I missed the Carolina blogger meet up! :-( Although Greenville is a bit of a hike for me.....I'm a Pee Dee girl! Hope you have a great time. Maybe I can make the next one.
