Currently October- and one of my favorite things :)

Fall sure flies when you're a teacher. I missed last month's Currently with Farley at Oh Boy Fourth Grade, so I wanted to make sure I caught October's!

This month's going to be a little different for me. I'm still settling into a new area and don't know many people, which hasn't been so bad so far...  but now my husband's switching to 2nd shift, which means that if I'm spending a lot more time home alone. So far, I'm not loving it.

We do have plans every weekend this month, including a surprise mini-vacation for our dating anniversary at the end of the month. He won't tell me yet where we're going, but I am so excited!

As for my "treat"... I highly suggest the Lemon Escape lotion from VS! It makes me smell just like a lemon Starburst and I am in LOVE!

  2. Love the leaves changing, too! I could spend hours just driving around looking at the colors like my grandparents used to do ;) Excited for you and your mini-vaca! We have one coming up next weekend and I am already counting down the hours-- it's much needed this time of year!! Happy October :)

    1. It was 80 today, too! Strange for October (at least here in Ohio), but the leaves are at least starting to show a little color. From the hints I've gotten so far, I think our mini-vacation is going to be somewhere naturey... so I'm hoping the leaf color will be peaking then! :)

    2. Keeping an eye on the post of the surprise mini-vaca!

  4. I am loving your blog and am your newest follower! I'm in need of getting healthier, too! I try to run around during recess with my kiddos :)

    1. Thanks, Elizabeth! I'm a half-time reading specialist this year, so you would think I can find plenty of time to exercise... unfortunately being less busy is meaning more snacking! :) I'm so glad you found my blog! Welcome!
