August Currently

August!  Some of you are back to school already.  I would feel sorry for you, but you've been out since May, haha.  I luckily have one full month of summer left - and I sure need it!

Time to link up with Farley at Oh Boy 4th Grade for this month's Currently...

Listening - I love me some real housewives.  And this season Tamra is really stirring the pot.  Naughty, naughty!

Loving - This past week I was in Chicago watching my nieces while my sister and brother-in-law took a much needed vacay to Mexico!  Luckily my best friend came along to help me.  I needed it!  My nieces are certainly a joy... and very, very busy so the extra hands were much appreciated.  I can't stop thinking about all the fun times we had over the past week.  Of course I took a million pics and video so I've been looking through those missing them already.  (But don't feel too sorry for me - I'll see them again in two weeks, haha!)

Aunt Colleen loves to buy the girls matching outfits!

Thinking - Bright and early tomorrow I start my training for the October half-marathon - eek!  I'm totally nervous and excited.  Though it won't be easy, I know I can rise to the challenge.

Wanting - It's August and I still don't have a tan.  Not cool.  (And yes, I know that the sun is very bad for me... but I just want a little glow!)  I think a few pool days are in order this coming week...

Needing - I'm pretty sure this was my same "needing" from July... clearly I haven't made much progress.  Seriously though, I need to get cracking!  There isn't much time left before I'll be in my classroom setting up.  Yikes!

1st Day - We go back on September 2nd and the kiddos come on September 3rd.  Not much time to prepare, so like many teachers, we do a lot on our time.  Good thing those firsties are worth it!

What are you Currently up to?


  1. Wow you have a NICE long summer break! Mine was only 6 weeks this year. Enjoy that last few weeks and good luck with the training!

  2. The girls are adorable. Good luck with your training. I help coach our HS cross country team. I don't run any more, but love being around the whole running atmosphere. My kids come back on September 2nd. Enjoy the remaining weeks of free time.

  3. Your nieces are adorable! I love me some Housewives, too! I can't believe there is going to be a Melbourne! I am always hesitant at first but end up watching. HA! I wish I was more tan, too. I use self tanner to supplement because I have sensitive pale Irish skin.

  4. Wow, a half marathon! That would scare me, haha! I'm sure it will feel amazing when you cross the finish line!

  5. I sure love reality TV! The drama is great isn't it! Are you going to be watching Bachelor in Paradise? It looks like things get heated! Wow--a half marathon! More power to you girl! :)

    1. My DVR is already set for Bachelor in Paradise!! I can't wait!

  6. Seems like our Augusts are pretty similar. I spent the last week hosting my husband's youngest cousins at "Camp Raegan". Their parents sent them to come visit for a week so that they could enjoy some time alone. They are 6 and 8 and I think they had a great time! I know that by the time we dropped them with mom and dad yesterday they we were exhausted. At least I was! I loved being able to sleep in until 9 today! What a treat!

    I've done so little on my "BTS To-Do" list. I'm actually kind of hoping that the weather here at the beach stays like this (rainy and cool) so I can get some stuff done today!

    Enjoy your last month of summer!
