Currently... August

Did I hear someone mention the word "August"?
Where has the summer gone?  We go back August the 12.  10 days away!!!

I'm linking up with the Amazing Farley at Oh Boy 4th Grade for Currently August.

 I've been working like a mad woman trying to plan and complete preparations of my classroom. I am one of those teachers who feels so much better if my room is completely ready, plans have been made for the next 2 weeks, and copies and etc are in their bins BEFORE school ever begins.  It's a sickness, I know.

I have mentioned before that we have 3 boys and 1 girl.  Sometimes I think my sweet daughter probably feels  a little left out with all the boy activities that seem to go on at our house.  She prefers the calm and quiet.  Unfortunately that's just not how it normally is at our house.   So this summer one day a week we had mother/daughter date days.  Loved this!!! 

Today is my Sweet Mom's heavenly birthday.  She passed away from cancer 4 years ago.  I miss her terribly! 

My house is in need of a Back to School cleaning frenzy.  Seriously! 

My Top 3 Back to School Must Have's are:

1.  A Teacher Planner
This year I broke down and ordered an Erin Condren Teacher Planner.  I am loving it!
2.  A teacher bag
I love my Thirty One bag!

3.  A B2S Outfit
Seriously!  I'm just like my kids.  I always love to have a new outfit to wear on the first day of school.  My favorite places to shop are The Limited and The Loft.

Don't forget to check out all of the amazing Currently's by clicking on the photo below.  Thanks for stopping by Friends!  Please stop by Sunday for an AMAZING Back to School Giveaway with lots of FREEBIES that I am participating in with some bloggy friends.  I can't wait!!!

I am in need of a pedicure too! And a back to school outfit is a must. I love the teacher planner. I saw one the other day on another blog and I am really wanting one now.

Found your blog through Currently and I am your newest follower. Would love for you to head over and check out my blog! I am so close to 100 followers and I am having a classroom theme bundle giveaway!

I totally agree about the planner! I would love an Erin Condren planner, but I feel like they're geared toward elementary, and it would stick to pay all that money, and not be able to use it because I'm a high school teacher!
I always feel excited/stressed picking out my first day outfit, because it just has to be perfect :) Good luck!

Oh, I like that bag! I am a sucker for teacher bags! Those mother-daughter days sound great, and I would imagine that they meant the world to your little girl!

Hi! I'm stopping by from the Currently linky! I just got my pedicure, but now a new bag and new outfit would be wonderful! I feel like I'm spending a million dollars on my classroom this year. I'm wondering at what point The Mister is going to make me stop! :)

So sorry your missing your mother. I hope she's having an extra special birthday. Love your planner. That was the one I had until my dog chewed it into pieces.
