September Currently

Currently time!

You know the drill. We get to link up with Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade and share some fun:

And let me first mention that I have 2 giveaways going on for tiny bit can click {HERE} to go to the post where you can enter both of them!

Anyway, let's get started:

Listening: It is QUIET right now... possibly because it is after midnight... but whatever the reason, I am enjoying it.

Loving: I am excited to meet the 27 new faces that will make up my brand new class! I see them in less than 12 hours.... I know, maybe I should sleep, but I can't!!!!!

Thinking: You know... that to-do list is LONG {and probably part of the reason I am awake!}

Wanting: So today I was in Ulta telling my hubby, I think I need a new straightener... was tempted to buy it, but I showed restraint {new for me in Ulta} and then get home to see mine is broken. Um, is that not a sign? New straightener coming right up! Yay!!

Needing: help to decorate this little apartment. We just moved into a new place and I am having trouble finding the furniture and things that I want. We kept our couch and a few other key items, but I garage saled {just made that a verb} a lot of my old stuff. I'm not sure....was that a bad idea? Now our extra bedroom just has stacks of things in rows that used to live on shelves and in a trunk I no longer own.

I want to make it cute and look like a home even through it's an apartment and I am struggling with that. {P.S. Starting a new school year will really help this situation, too I'm sure...yikes!}

3 Trips: Okay so the rules are 3 places I have never been which is the only reason that France isn't on the list. If you know me or read this blog you will know I was in France this summer, I was married there and if I have it my way I will be back there soon. Obsessed with that place and really with Europe in general. I mean, I did marry a Euro after all :)

New Zealand is a place I have been talking about going to forever!!

Russia is a place my sister, brother and I tried to go to once before, but we waited until it was too late to get a visa.... oops! So we went to Estonia instead since it is close, but didn't require a visa. I LOVED it there - the people, food and architecture were amazing, but Russia is still on that list.

Lastly, China intrigues me! I am not as well traveled in Asia, but love Thailand and Japan....however, that is about the extent of my experience.

And as far in the USA Philadelphia is on my list. It is a city with a lot of US history that I have never seen.

Don't forget to enter my giveaways {here}! And don't forget to have a fantabulous four day week!!
