October Currently!

I love Fall! I'm so excited for October to be here! I'm linking up Farley from Oh' Boy 4th Grade

LISTENING: Yes, I'm watching the Muppets in Space movie while blogging and working on my computer on a Saturday night. Don't start feeling bad for me. I have had a very amazing week. My boyfriend surprised me to see David Gray on Tuesday night, which allowed me to check that off my Concert Bucket List. Last night we went and saw Citizen Cope and that was super awesome. 

LOVING: I took some time out of the classroom this fall to focus on my writing and I was working with a company in private schools that provided intervention to kids below grade level. This was really nice for flexibility and for my writing. However, then I have decided that I want to move back to Ohio. I miss my family so so much and that's driving my decision. I'm pulling a Lebron in spring 2015 and headed back.  In light of that, I need a little bit more savings to be ready for the big move.  As fate would have it, a fabulous school I interviewed with this summer called and asked if I was interested in covering a Gifted Kindergarten maternity leave from October- February. I am soooo excited to work with this grade level and to be able to save a little bit so I can move to Columbus. I prefer second, and first grade, but I am really excited to add some more kindergarten experience to my repertoire! 

Any Ohio Bloggers out there? Leave me a note in the comments!

THINKING: Like many of you, I am a pumpkin-aholic. Does it have pumpkin in it? Okay I'm in.  Last year I even made a pumpkinbucketlist. (Interested? Find the link in the "Treat" section coming up). Sooooooo the other day I went to Starbucks (if you've read my post "How Getting Kicked Out of Starbucks Helped My Kids Put Their Names on Their Papers" this should not come as a shock) and as I was checking out I saw these cute little cake pops in packages of two. The boyfriend and I were driving to make a delivery for his work and the cake pops seemed like a nice treat for the drive. They were salted caramel and they were INCREDIBLE. At my favorite local coffee shop the owner boasts about their salted caramel I think I'm shifting my fall flavor focus to salted caramel. So that's that. 

WANTING: My Giveaway Groupies Linky will go LIVE tomorrow and I would LOVE if people would link up! It should be nice and easy and fun! You will GIVE an idea, GIVE some love, GIVE me a break, and GIVEAWAY! Pretty please with sugar on top, link up with me tomorrow. Thanks!

NEEDING: to make some new clip art. My 2 month old computer crashed two weeks ago (Yes, I lost 2 months of work- don't get me started) and now it is back from the shop! Yay! That means I'm ready to crank out some new clip art sets!  My favorites so far are my Monster Clip Art, Owl Clip Art, and Halloween Clip Art. What should I make next? Open to suggestions!
