May Currently

I'm linking up with Farley at Oh Boy Fourth Grade for the May Currently!

Listening: I never seem to be listening to anything when I'm working on the currently's so I decided to start sharing songs that I like at the moment! This month I'm listening to and loving "Something Big" by Shawn Mendes!

Loving: Since we just bought a house I'm constantly looking around for things to decorate the house with! I found these astrology prints on and am in love!

I'm thinking of putting these in the powder room and having a grey/white/mint colour scheme.
Maybe with some quatrefoil as a pattern thrown in ;)

Thinking: My outside bulletin board has been the same for too long so I need to plan out a new one and get busy! I'm thinking about creating a math problem-solving board (our hallway boards have to be math-based).  I always draw out my bulletin boards before a unit.  It helps me plan and remember to keep samples/take pictures.

Wanting: There is SO much we want to do in our new home but even buying furniture etc. is hard without actually being in the space! We get to go in twice before we actually move in in June so we are going next weekend! Can't wait to get in so we can start painting/decorating!!

Here is one of my favourite inspiration pics!

Needing: It is FINALLY sandal weather here in Canada! I pulled out my sandals for the first time this year today and realized that my toes were not so sandal ready... so the first thing on my to do list after I'm done this post is to paint my nails!

Just for fun, here are my favourite nail products & colours!

I'm an Essie girl for nail polish!

And my favourite glitter out of the Martha Stewart Glitter Trio is "Smoky Quartz".
I love using that glitter for an accent nail!

Here's a pic I dug out of my Instagram archives to show you what Chinchilly looks like!
Chinchilly is my favourite nail colour for fall & winter!

The glitter is Deborah Lippmann's "Happy Birthday"


Yes - I HAVE to get my full licence this summer. I think my licence expires next year and I don't want to cut it that close.  I hate driving so I'm super nervous but I'm hoping to take a few lessons before the big day to ease my nerves a little!

Hope - I'm hoping to have lots of time this summer to chill out and work on updating my store! I've been jotting down ideas for products but I don't always have the time to create everything I think of during the year so I'm looking forward to having the time to focus on my store this summer :)

Dream - A girl can dream right? Oh how I wish I could win the lottery so that I could pick anything I want for my new house! And of course unlimited clipart would be a teacher-author's dream come true ;)

That's it!

  1. First of all, a BIG THANK YOU for nominating me for the Liebster Award. I'm still working on my post but I will definitely let you know when it's up!

    I'm super jealous of the new house. I'm still working on saving. I absolutely cannot wait to get into my own home and do all of the decorating. You are going to have an awesome time!

    1. Haha! I do use glitter polish as well but real glitter just seems faster! It's a little messy at first though until you get the hang of it! I will go and check out your currently now!


  3. Oh - I love your astrology prints and color scheme ideas! Sounds fabulous.

    I moved into a new house about a year ago, and am still having fun decorating. I think I will be following your home ideas on Pinterest!

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

    1. Thanks Jane! I'm so excited to decorate and make the house pretty! I'm pinning lots of ideas and paint colours too because we are planning to paint a lot of the main floor when we move in!


  4. I also dream of winning the lottery so I can by ridiculous amounts of clipart!
    I've nominated your blog for an award. You can find the details here:

    1. Haha isn't that every teacher-author's dream? And thank you for the nomination, but I actually just wrote my Liebster award post last week! Here is a link if you want to check it out ;)
