it's gonna be may

Yep, you heard me right! :-)

It's May and time to link up with Farley for her Currently partay, my favorite post of the month!

So here's what's going on in my neck of the woods!

Listening to the Mowgli's!
My boyfriend knows me so good. The other day he played this song for me, telling me it sounded like a "Michelle song:"

He was right. I downloaded it right away on iTunes and then he told me about another song, San Francisco:

So cute, right? Maybe you just found two new favorite songs like I did!

Loving....The Book of Mormon!

I saw it last Tuesday and it's so good. I've seen a few Broadway shows and this one and Wicked are my fave. The video above is the opening number, and here's my favorite one, Turn it Off (but this version is not even close to as good as the one I just saw...but you get the idea!)

Anyways, I just love, Love, LOVED this musical. Super funny. You should definitely check it out!

Thinking about summer vacation!
This week was a tough one. I'm just really ready for a break - sitting in the sunshine, visiting friends and family, making it to the beach, maybe finally getting a puppy? Need a break from work and some time unwind and take care of myself. Who's with me?

Wanting to go to Vegas
I really really REALLY want to go to Vegas for the TpT conference but I said yes to a conference here in IL and the dates overlap. I'm so mad I didn't check the schedule....maybe next year? :-(

Needing this weird cough to go away
It's the annoying one where it feels like you have an itch in the way back of your throat? Yesterday, one of the little firsties that comes to my office for group with our reading specialist says all concerned, "Are you OK?!" Not cool to get the springtime cold!

Yes, a hope, and a dream

Yes, definitely going to visit my family in Florida and my friends in California; I'm hoping to teach at the university to the Reading Specialist program in July, and dreaming about getting my dog after travels...Dudley. He's a mini-golden doodle and I've been thinking about him for YEARS!

What are you up to? Make sure to hop on over to Farley's blog and get in on the action!

Happy Saturday!


  1. I love your blog design! So adorable! I have been wanting to see the Book of Mormon as I have heard really good reviews! I'm right there with you about Vegas. I found out about the promo on Donors Choose too late or else I totally would have made the trip. Here's hoping for next year! But that mini-golden doodle! Oh my goodness, so precious! Have a wonderful rest of the school year!

  2. LOVE "San Francisco". Will have to listen to their other songs now.
    Have a great weekend!

  3. I LOVE your N'Sync reference!! Brings back memories, that was the first concert I ever went to! :-)

  4. I wish you were going to Vegas with me this year, but I'm assuming I'll love it and will partner up with you next year, too!! Oh, Dudley. I'm optimistic he'll end up in your family very soon. XO I also hope you get rid of your cough by next Saturday. We have some more attendees signed up for our Social Media session! ;)

    Teachers Are Terrific!
