March Currently

Amy here! We are so excited to link up with Farley again for this month's Currently (two in a row, WOWZA! We are on a roll!)

Listening: My mom and I went to see the musical Once a little while back and I am now OBSESSED!! I didn't know it was a movie so I had not seen it yet. We are a family that LOVES the theater so I have been very fortunate to see several musicals. Once is definitely in my top 5. If you have not had a chance to see it, check it out!

Loving: Oh why, oh why did I have to take a peek at the Easter section at Target. I have a HUGE weakness for Cadbury Mini-Eggs. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!

Thinking: I am currently eating Cadbury Mini-Eggs while I type...well... I think that pretty much sums it up. I need help!

Wanting: Our mini-fidge is on its last leg and we are in desperate need of a new one. My sweet hubby went to one thousand and one stores today looking for just the right one and came home empty handed. So the search continues...

Needing: Mollie and I are in a Collaborative Study Group with 5 other teachers and an academic support coach. The goal of the group is to identify individual instructional goals/projects that we are implementing in our classrooms and spend the year supporting one another in meeting those goals/projects. Mollie and I are both working with our kiddos on blogging. Mollie focused on the introduction of the blogs as well as teaching students how to make their blogs aesthetically pleasing and I am focusing on writing powerful comments. As part of the process, our group comes in and observes the project in action. They will be here on March 12th so it is crunch time. I have several things I need to get together before they come. It is such an awesome experience! We will blog about the entire process soon!

Spring Break Plans: I am so excited to have a majority of the time to do a few projects around the house and maybe finish up a few resources to post in our store. However, it wouldn't feel like Spring Break without a little something to look forward to. My mom and I are going to take the girls to Chicago for a couple days. I am so excited to take them on the train! They will love it!


  1. Your blog is really cute! I am a new follower. :) Seasonal candy is dangerous. For me, I tend to go for the sweet candies at Easter and Valentine's Day so the candy hearts and jelly beans. Enjoy your treats...the season will be over before you know it! :)

  2. Oh my ~ holiday candy, such a blessing and a curse. The struggle is real. Good luck on your observation!

  3. I am so glad to have found your adorable blog through the Currently link-up. You've got a new follower, here! I hope you have fun in Chicago - I am originally from the suburbs and miss it every day!

  4. Hahaha! I'm eating mini-eggs as I type this comment (and it's the morning!) Perhaps we can start an online support group :) Have a great week!

  5. I never heard of Cadbury Easter eggs. =/ Are they really really good?? I feel like I have been living under a rock because I don't know what that is and I LOVE chocolate!

    1. Don't do it! Don't try them. It is all over once you do!! They are the same concept as M & Ms in that they have a hard candy shell and milk chocolate centers, they are AMAZING! I think it is the yummy Cadbury chocolate. They do sell mini-bags now... but if you buy multiple bags, it kinda defeats the purpose... Yup. Totally addicted!

  6. Luckily, I'm not really a sweets person! Although the peanut butter eggs are my one weakness! Your blogging endeavor sounds amazing. I would love to be able to collaborate with other teachers like that!

  7. Have fun on your trip! I have never been to Chicago but it is on our list of places we would like to visit. Reading your post has made me decide to not do laundry tonight but to take a trip to Target to check our with they have in the dollar spot :) Thanks!

  8. How I long to visit Chicago! My uncle is a neurologist at The University of Chicago and I have been wanting to visit him and my aunt there for a while. So many fun things to do there too!
