December Currently!

How is it DECEMBER already? Even though I am 5 days late I am linking up with the Fabulous Farley from Oh Boy' Fourth Grade and her monthly Currently linky.  Here we go...
Listening: So across the street from us is a house that feeds all of the neighborhood stray cats. This means that there is a large group of cats that linger about and this just tortures my two pups!

Loving: Online shopping has saved me SO much time and stress! I went on a mini shopping spree on Cyber Monday and the packages are coming in slowly but surely. I only have a few gifts left!

Thinking: I do not know about you all but I have SO MUCH left to do until break. I have our trimester awards assembly to prep for, report cards to finish (due tomorrow), Academic Improvement Plans to write, a holiday parent gift to make, and parent conferences to hold... YIKES!

Wanting: Escrow closes on our new house in just over a week or so and then we are moving in the Friday after Christmas! We have a lot of packing to do but all this pregnant lady wants to do on the weekends is catch up on sleep. The hubs has been doing a great job picking up my slack. I can't wait to get that 2nd wind in the 2nd trimester... any day now I hope!!!

Needing: I am looking for a new book to read! Our book club just finished Fault of our Stars and Gone Girl (both were SOOO good!). We are waiting to hear what the next one is but I am thirsty for something new in the meantime.

RAK: Tomorrow I have a day off to work on my Report Cards so I left my sub a Starbucks card! I know that would make my day a little brighter!

I hope you link up to Farley's December Currently... Remember here rule of 3: comment on the 2 before your link and leave a comment at the 1 behind yours!


  1. That is so sweet of you to leave your sub a Starbucks card! I'll have to remember that. Congrats on your pregnancy! Thanks for stopping by our blog and leaving us a comment. We started following you awhile back and enjoy your blog! :)

  2. Hi Layla,

    What a cute blog! I'm your newest follower & found you through Farley's "Currently" linky.

    A Starbucks card is such a sweet idea! I did a year of subbing before I started in 1st grade and would have LOVED that! So sweet!

    Have a great day!

  4. So glad to have found your blog, and I agree completely with being thankful for online shopping. I'm about halfway done. Just need to find out what the nieces and nephews want!

  5. Wow! Your to-do list is crazy! It made me feel thankful that my report cards and parent conferences are over:) What a great idea to do something like that for your sub! Now, I am going to do something for my sub that is coming in for a 1/2 day in the morning on the 21st (yikes!) so I that I can see my daughter in her Kindergarten Christmas program. Thank you for the inspiration!

  6. Hi Layla,

    Congratulations on your pregnancy!! I'm needing something new to read over Winter Break too. Have you read Divergent? It's really good.

  7. Hi Layla~
    You stopped by my blog and read my Currently and I wanted to return the favor. I'm not sure what I would do if I didn't have a Dunkin. My sis lives near Monteray and she hates not having one! I think she goes crazy when she visits me. I'm sending her k-cups for Christmas!

  8. Hey Layla,
