It's a Celebration!!


I'm really not sure how I should feel about turning the 'big' 3-0.
Being 27 weeks pregnant also doesn't help with my emotions. Ha!

I am planning on pampering myself today and then watching some college football! Of course I'll be rooting the loudest for my fave team..FSU!!!

But for now, I would like to share some of my joy/sorrow/anxiety of turning thirty with you!

Meet the Teacher Blogger


I love a good linky party and this one if perfect for this time of year!
I have done {at least} two of these types of posts before but they're always so fun and I love getting to know the people behind the posts/IG pics that I follow.

Hey! My name is Kelly and I am a {in 19 days} 30 year old wife, teacher, blogger, and soon to be mama

This is me and my hubby of 7 years. We've been together for 12 years. That's right you math guru's, we were 18 years old when we first met.  Love that man!

This Thanksgiving we will be meeting a precious little Mister! We are beyond excited to be starting a little family of our own but are also scared out of our minds! 

We have two perfect little pups. Okay, they're not so little but they are first babies and they are currently our world. Love fur babies!!!

These are a few of my favorite things…
The color blue. Stripes. Tervis tumblers with cute straws. Red wine. Chocolate chip cookies. Really…all food. Victoria Secret everything. Water {that you swim and lay next to} of all kinds. Traveling. All trash tv. Friends…the tv show. Blog stalking.

If you weren't a teacher, what would you want to be?
Boutique owner and/or blood splatter analyst. Yes, those are two totally different career paths and one is slightly creepy. I promise I'm not a psycho! :)

Three little words that describe you.
Loyal. Outgoing. Funny

Finish the sentence, " ____ said no teacher EVER!"
"I can't wait to sit through another meeting during pre-planning week…said no teacher EVER"  LET ME INTO MY ROOM! 

Q: It's your birthday and you can invite anyone {dead or alive} to the party. Who are you inviting? 
Jennifer Anniston and Paul Walker

Q: If someone wrote a book about your life, what would be the title?
Margaritas and Monograms

Q: You get to pick one superpower. What is it?
The ability to be invincible.

Q: What's your favorite quote or saying?
"Say what you mean, but don't say it mean"

Q: If you had to sing one song on American Idol, what would it be?
No Doubt "Don't Speak"
That's just the first song that popped up…not the only one I would choose. Pretty much any late 80's and 90's songs! :)

Q: Are you a morning person or a night owl?
I get more stuff done in the morning but I can stay up late some nights.  It all just depends. I'm flexible and it depends on how much coffee I have access to! :)

What's your favorite resource that you've created in your TPT store?'s one I am currently utilizing:

But I'm using my new covers:

Share something we might not know about you.

My hubby's parents and my parents actually went to high school and college together and we had never met until we were 18.  He was living in Boston and I was living in Gainesville, FL.  I first saw a picture of him in my local paper.  The article had nothing to do with my town. We met in person a month later after our parents reconnected and the rest is history! :)

Now it's your turn.  Click the link to meet other awesome people and/or link up and join the fun!

What I Got…so far

The only thing exciting about back to school is shopping
I love scoring a good deal on fun stuff for my classroom.  I love this linky party particularly because I get to see what everyone else got and fill my cart right back up for the last day of the sale tomorrow! :) 

Here's what I got…so far

These things are perfect for primary grades. I've used them the past couple years and they are simple and easy to use and a great way to communicate with parents daily!
I mean, do you see that bus craftivity?! Whole reason for purchase and I'm so glad I did! 

Perfect for creating a classroom community at the beginning of the year.
Really anything you purchase from Kristen is worth every penny! 

Okay…show me your goods. 
I'm ready to purchase some more!!!

Head to Blog Hoppin to see what everyone else bought!

Currently + Babycation

I know I say this every year, but where did summer go?
I have been thoroughly enjoying my summer this year and, per usual, procrastinated on getting anything completed or accomplished and I'm now stressin' a bit because I go back to school in one week.  That is not okay.

Before I begin checking off my ever-growing list of to-do's, I'm linking up with Farley for her monthly currently linky party.  
I've got some fun photos to share too!

I feel like every time I link up with Farley, it's always on a Sunday and I am always doing the same exact thing…sitting in silence. Sunday's really are a day of rest…well…at least in the morning.

Y'all, I am loving putting together my registries for Little Mister.  It is so fun!
My husband has completely relinquished any control over what is going in his room {since he knows nothing about babies} and I am loving putting a 'theme' together.  I started with gray and blue colors and then added in some splashes of green and white.  I decided to go with whales as the 'theme' but only with touches here and there of whales.  This picture inspired me:

I can't wait to start putting all the pieces together.  Don't worry, I will share along the way! :)

With all this fun baby stuff, its been hard to really put all my energy into school stuff although I am slowly getting my room put together.  I really would love a magical fairy to just do it for me. Any takers??

Okay y'all! I had the most amazing time with my sweet hubby a couple weeks ago when we took our 'baby-cation' to California!  It was the first time I had visited and since he was already out there for work, it was the perfect opportunity. I didn't want to come back to the F-L.  No humidity, no frizz, no sticky sweat. IT. WAS. GLORIOUS.

My sweet hubby picked me up in San Fran and then we headed down some mountain ridge road that took us to some beautiful redwoods!

Those things are huge.

Then, we headed down to Monterey and Big Sur. My **favorite** place!

I mean how could you not want to live here?!

To end the trip, we headed back to San Fran.  We had so much fun just randomly picking roads to drive down. It was insane how vertical the roads go!

This does not do the vertical street justice. It was cray!

Well there you have it.  
Make sure to stop by Farley's blog to check out what other amazing bloggers have been up to!  

And don't forget about the awesome TPT back to school sale!!!  
My store and cart are ready to go! :)

Thanks Kimberly for this adorable graphic!
