It's October!!! My absolute FAVORITE time of the year. Well... I mean, Texas doesn't know what Fall is so I can't be TOO excited. I can drive to see the Fall weather that I miss. Changing trees, cooler weather, typical white girl style (hoodies, shorts, uggs, and PSL) #judgeme 

I linked up with Farley a day late for Currently! It's been A BUSY life around here. You'll find out! :) 

So, here we go! 

Listening: I am an all things obsessive Nicholas Sparks LOVER. I see a movie on TV, we are watching it. New book, preordered and read ASAP! Plus, Zac Efron isn't too bad to look at ;) 

Loving: October is my favorite favorite favorite time of year. I just wish it was like Oklahoma falls down here in Texas. BUT amazing things happen this month. Our FIRST year wedding anniversary is on the 19th, my husbands birthday is Friday, Halloween with my nephew is going to be SO MUCH FUN. Ah. Just love it! Plus all the Halloween crafts to do with the kiddos. I am TOO excited. 

Thinking: I've had a really rough time this year. I'm not going to sugar coat it. Moving from kindergarten to third grade has been really rough on me. It's a totally different ball game and with all the other changes at my district, well it's education right, what can I do but change my mindset. In my masters program we are really digging into Fountas and Pinnell and I have to find something that works for me before I lose my mind. Any ideas on ELAR schedules, shoot my way! 

Wanting: I need to get myself organized, so who do I call?! Mom. She's on her way here next week. Praise the LORD! 

Needing: My husband. He works so much, and I'm so thankful. But boy do I miss him during the week. Hurry up Friday!
We have a birthday boy to celebrate :)

  1. Cassie,
    I changed grades this year too. I forgot how hard it would be to make all new units for curriculum topics I have taught before, how different the kids would be, how everything would make me TIRED. I know that both of US can make it to Christmas right? I get Thanksgiving holiday next weekend (can you tell I am Canadian?) and I hope to recharge a little...before I have to start report cards!
    Hope you have a great weekend with your handsome hubby!

  2. I moved from 2nd to 3rd last year, and I thought that was rough (rough enough to go back to 2nd this year). I can't imagine moving from K to 3rd. I hope the rest of your year gets better! I also love this time of year. I adore all the cute fall activities, can't wait to make them. Happy (early) Anniversary to you and your husband.

  3. I watched that movie last night too...and yes Zac Efron is totally easy on the eyes....LOL!!

    Cute pic of you two! Happy anniversary this month!! :)
