So Much to be Thankful For

With so much to be thankful for this year, I am joining the teachers of Primary Powers in a Thankful linky!

For starters, I am super thankful for the little man growing inside my ever-growing belly! :) His due date is in just 16 short days and the hubby and I are beyond excited! We had a very rough year last year, so this is nothing short of little miracle baby! yay!

I am so thankful to have a hubby like mine. The older we get, the more we grow, the bigger our love gets.  We have been together for 12 years, married for 7, and are the greatest duo around {we are not biased at}.
He keeps me sane, on track, makes me laugh daily and as I watch him become a Daddy I grow more and more in love with him. So thankful that God chose him for me. 

Seriously thankful this year for TPT and the blogging community.
I have grown so much as a teacher the past five years and it is all due to the community of blogging teachers I have had the great pleasure of meeting and learning from.  I owe it all to YOU.
I am also thankful for what TPT has been able to provide for me and my sweet growing little family.  Plus I get to snag so many amazing products weekly from their site. The opportunities are endless with TPT and the blogging world! 

What are you most thankful for?

What I find hilarious is that my last post was the October currently. 
Seriously, where has the time gone? 

I don't even really have time to be writing this post, but I thought maybe you might be worried about where I've been. Because I'm such an important part of your daily lives, right?! :)

I have not listened to Jack Johnson in a lifetime and I'm so glad that the hubs decided to start our morning off with his melodic music! 

Holy cold front!!! Friday reached a high of 80 and then Saturday reached a high of 61.  For us Floridians, that's a big deal.  Not to mention we had a wind chill too! This nice change in weather won't last long for us, as it's suppose to get back up to the 80's next week. whomp, whomp

This morning marks my ninth month of pregnancy, which means the Little Dudder will be here THIS MONTH!  As excited as the hubs and I are, I'm freaking out just a little bit! We still don't have the nursery all set up {the construction worker man of a hubby, has "big plans" for what we're going to do with the new guest room, so all the guest room items are still hanging out in the nursery}. It will be happening this week. Fingers crossed.
I realized that he could come early, so I will be packing our hospital bags today. Just in case. 

Did I mention we need to finish the nursery?!  Dear heavens!

My maternity sub plans are coming together really nicely though.
I got to interview some prospects and we've selected a current Kinder intern who has been at our school for the past two years.  She knows us, our curriculum, the school, and knows my kiddos {for the most part}. HUGE sigh of relief.
My sub binder is coming together really nicely and I will be adding pages to the packet in the next week, as my OCD-self found some more things that could be added to help cover all bases while you're away from you room.
This could be a blessing or overwhelming annoyance for subs, but I'm loving all the details I'm leaving. She shouldn't miss a thing or have to second-guess anything while I'm away! :) Relinquish control. I must relinquish control.

Click book to check it out.
I am currently reading Jenny McCarthy's book Belly Laughs and it is 
Perfect book to read while pregnant.  If you're looking for some real information in a funny, relatable way then this is your book!

My goal this month is to share something I'm doing in the classroom with you.  Really anything before the Little Man comes. I promise to do my best!
Until then, check out some more amazing teachers.

Currently Time

I blinked and suddenly it was October and time for another currently!

Listening: My hubby is slightly obsessed with Mr. Wiz Khalifa and I find myself listening to it every morning and every night. Pretty sure this baby is going to come out a little 'gangster!' lol

Loving…this cold front! I say that somewhat sarcastically as cold fronts in Florida are not really "cold" fronts at all.  More like cooler, slightly more enjoyable weather where I'm not sticking to my clothes mid-morning.  I certainly yearn for actual seasonal changes and leaves that begin to change colors in October rather than January.  Being now eight months preggo, I am beyond ready for some cooler weather…whatever that may be.  As long as it's not in the 90's anymore!

Thinking…did you read that part…eight months preggo?!  Now that I am 8 weeks into the school year {it still feels like the beginning of the year to me} I need to get going on getting my maternity binder all set. I started a couple weeks ago and then got completely side tracked with all the hoops our district is requiring us to go through now! 

Wanting…a facial! I love to get pampered. Who doesn't?!

Needing…time to slow down.  If you've read anything thus far, you can understand why. :)

Treat time!
I am putting two three products {I am currently using} on sale for the weekend!  Hope you can find some use in them as well!

You can read more about Mrs. Wishy Washy here. Click the picture to check it out in my store!

Click here to read more about The Biggest Pumpkin Ever!

Both products will be receiving a facelift soon. Be on the lookout. :)

You can read more about the Long-Term Sub Binder here and see the new covers here

I hope you are all getting to enjoy some sort of fall weather!
I'm off to get some work done and then watch my Seminoles play some football.
Happy Saturday!
