SLANT Box Reveal

Hey Again,

Today I wanted to talk a bit about my SLANT box. If you don't know about SLANT boxes, you can read about it here:

Lessons With Coffee

Thanks to Jameson over at Lessons with Coffee for dreaming up this awesome idea and sharing it with the rest of us!

For August, I was linked up with the awesome Lola over at:

Preschool Wonders

and Debbie from Teise's Tidbits

It was nice to get to know these two educators over the month of August! The theme for August was "These are a few of my favourite things"

Lola did a great job of finding some awesome things for me! I hope Debbie enjoyed the things I picked out for her!

Here's how my box arrived...


And here are all the great contents:

Some cute pencils, lip balm, owl post-its, a Starbucks card, and a super cute mug with my initial on it!

The best part? The mug totally matches my new planner (this is a crummy pic, but you can see the patterns)! 

I highly recommend signing up for a SLANT box! September is closed already, but October is coming up.

Have a great Sunday, everyone!

Currently September...and an Update

Hello peeps!

If you're still around reading this lovely little blog, thanks!

I know I've been an awful blogger this summer (or a nonexistent one)! I promise, I do have a plan to be better this year! To start off this better blogging year, I'm linking up with Farley at Oh Boy, 4th Grade for the first Currently of the school year.

Oh' boy fourth grade

As well, I have a couple of posts coming slant box reveal (if you haven't seen the pictures on instagram yet) and a blog award I was given (yay)!

Listening:  I admit, I'm a sucker for some reality TV. Other than Big Brother, one of my faves is The Great Food Truck Race on Food Network. Also, Cutthroat Kitchen.   :)

Loving: I'm glad that Hubs and I got to spend some time together this weekend, before things get extra crazy, even though part of it was me getting very angry at the computer for not printing my labels properly!

Thinking?Wanting: Two sides of the same thing: Thinking about all the stuff that I'm sure I'm forgetting, or needing to plan, or wanting to do before school starts "for realsies" on Thursday.

Needing: My poor Hubs is so done with all the "kindercrap" :) that is in my living room. So I need to get some of it out and my house back to normal.

and for me: Even though things are super stressful with another grade level change, and teaching gym part-time, I really want to work on a balance, and not be worried and focused just on school this year. The second one is a fitness goal for myself. Years ago, when I was finishing up my first university degree, I spent part of a summer in Quebec City doing a French program. Since we flew there, we didn't have a car for the six weeks we were there, so we walked everywhere. I lost so much weight without even trying. I would love to be able to get back into walking (and, as a plus, doggie gets more exercise, too)!

Well, that's it for me. I'll be back later this week with my slant box reveal and first day of school pics!

Have a great (what's left of) Labour Day Weekend, everybody!
