Did Someone Say November?!

Gosh, this year is flying right by! I have many things I want to blog about, but never get around to it. I gotta start making some time for that I guess.

Linking up with Farley again for the Currently.

Listening: Our boys (Buster and Hans) must be the most spoiled pooches in the world! They pretty much rule our household, but then again I wouldn't have it any other way. Such unconditional love they give us. Buster is super playful and loves playing tug o war with my husband. Hansy on the other hand is a bit older and prefers to snuggle with us on the couch.

Loving: I am BEYOND excited to be meeting up with some old school friends in a few weeks!! I will be Kentucky bound to visit my friend, Amber, and her cute little family. We've been friends since 4th grade..wowsa... 25 years of friendship! She moved to Kentucky a few years back and lives on a cute little farm.  She will be working a few of the days I am there, so I decided to rent a car and head down to Nashville. At first it was going to be a little solo adventure, but another long time friend of mine, Mike, and his wife decided to make a mini vacation and meet me there. They live in St. Louis and love that they are making a the trek to Nashville.

I've never been to Kentucky or Tennessee and am super excited to explore that beautiful area of the US!

So if any of you live or have been to Kentucky (the Louisville area) or Nashville and have any advice on must see spots, send it my way!

Thinking: So on Friday I was told that the previous mayor and the current mayor of Los Angeles will be visiting my classroom on Monday morning. Can we say STRESSED! I am super excited, honored, and nervous all at the same time. I'm sure all will go well and I normally don't mind having visitors in my room. I've just never had someone like the Mayor visit.

Wanting: Last week I was tricked into thinking cooler weather had arrived. We got a day of rain and cooler temps. I loved it! Then BAM, 80/90 degree weather hit me in the face like a ton of bricks. Sigh... At least the mornings and evenings can be a bit brisk. My fingers are still crossed...

Needing: Winter clothes! Here in CA we don't see much of a winter and I'm not sure if my "winter" clothes will be warm enough when I head to Kentucky/Tennessee. I did buy some rain boots (for a December holiday) last weekend and have a warm jacket. But I don't think that will suffice. And what is with the drab colors out in the stores right now. Goodness, just because fall/winter has arrived doesn't mean we all want to wear brown, black, and gray! A little color would be nice.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend fellow blogging friends!!

  1. Let me just start-- OH MY GOSH! Those pups are adorable!!! I am trying to convince the bf that we should get dachshunds [I think that is the kind of dogs you have]. They are precious! We live in a one bedroom apartment, so the type of dog we get has to be small. A visit from the mayor?! I would be having SO MUCH anxiety! I will pray for you! It is stressful, but it is good that you are able to prepare! I am glad I found your blog through Farley's currently!Have an amazing holiday!

    1. Jessie- Yes they are Dachshunds! They would be perfect for an apartment. They are small but definitely have a lot of personality!

  2. Good luck with the mayor visit on Monday! I live in a really small town and my parents' neighbor is our mayor. He was my Biology teacher in high school. One of my best friends lives in Riverside, CA and she always has to bust out some warmer clothes when she comes back to Tennessee for holidays. Found your blog through Farley's currently party.

    1. Thanks! The visit went well. I've given up on any type of seasons here in California! It's November and 90 degrees outside. I can't wait to head to Kentucky for a nice change!

  3. Found you through Currently! You have some exciting things happening! The cool is that!!!! And seeing old friends is always a thrill! I got to spend Halloween last year with an old friend of mine of 25 years. It was kinda sad this Halloween because she wasn't here and it was like something was missing!

    1. Yes! Long time friends are the best! Hopefully, you and your friend will get to meet up sometime soon! Enjoy the holidays.

  4. The weather in Northern VA has been pretty crazy and was getting down to like 35 at night and in the mid 60s during the day...and then for two days in a row it was in the mid 70s during the day and 60s at night. I wore a tank top last night out to friends house! Although I love the summer, I am ready to bring out my sweaters and boots!

    Good luck with the Mayors!!

    Found your blog through Currently! Would love for you to head over and check out my blog…

    If You Give a Teacher a Treat

    1. Thank you so much! Everything went smooth!

  5. WOOO HOO! SO excited to hear about the MAYOR!!!!! They will be suuuuper impressed with your fabulous classroom!!! As Rika would say, you got this! :D Lunch date soon!!


  6. So jealous of your "winter" weather. Here in Michigan we've already broken out the winter coats and gloves. It's been in the 40s all week. :( Glad to have found your blog though Currently!
