November Currently

Hey all!

I am linking up with Farley from Oh' Boy 4th Grade for her monthly linky, Currently.

Listening: Top Chef
I love watching Top Chef. I have already seen this episode so it is more background noise than actually watching the show.

Loving: Recently I played Cards Against Humanities. If you have never played the game, it is the adult version of Apples to Apples. It is so funny. I have not laughed that hard in such a long time. It was a great game for Game Night. It is also completely inappropriate. :)

Thinking: Next week I have conferences. We actually have no students on Thursday and Friday because we use those days to meet with parents. That being said, I haven't even thought about what we will be doing next week. Thank goodness I still have Sunday to figure this all out!

Wanting: Have you seen those pictures of Tieks all over Instagram and Facebook? I have been admiring them and trying to convince myself that spending almost $200 on a pair of shoes is worth it. After I destroyed another pairs of flats that I just bought 2 months ago, I am almost ready to take the plunge. I especially love this color.

Needing: I got engaged about a month ago. We just figured out the venue and our wedding date. Now on to the dress. I have spent hours some time on Pinterest checking out pictures but I have not actually tried any dresses on.

Reading: If I am able to read for pleasure, I love to read books that are mindless. I already read so much for school that requires you to analysis each word and chapter. Sometimes I just want to get caught up in simple characters. I am currently reading "Rock Chick" by Kristen Ashley. I read this book in a couple of days. It progresses pretty quickly and the keeps you interested. It was just what I was looking for.

Happy November everyone! Don't forget to check out all of the other Currentlys.


  1. I keep seeing Tieks everywhere!! I've been on the brink of buying a pair for weeks!! Congrats on your engagement!!

    1. Thank you! I know if I buy shoes of good quality they will last longer and my feet won’t hurt but the price is so steep. I have been putting it off for weeks too. Christmas is coming up. This could be a perfect present.

  2. We have conferences coming up too...such a busy time of year! I hope you have a productive Sunday! I'll be doing some planning too!

    1. I am thankful they are a couple of weeks before Thanksgiving this year. Good luck with your planning tomorrow.

  3. Congratulations on your engagement!!! I guess I am out of the loop because this is the first I have heard of Tieks! Our conferences are in 3 weeks! Eeeek! So not ready!

    1. Thank you! Apparently these shoes are supposed to be amazing but they are around $200. Yikes! You can fold them up into a small ball and put them in your purse and they have a variety of styles and colors. Everyone that purchases them, loves them.

  4. Now I want to play Cards Against Humanities! That sounds like a fun game! I like party games, so I might have to try this one next.

  5. Congratulations on your engagement!! That's so exciting! I, like you, have been eyeing Tieks for a while now. Everyone raves about them but I just don't know. If you do end up buying them, you'll have to let us know what you think!!

    Love your blog - I'm your newest follower. :)
