Summer Bucket List Linky!

Hooray for Summer! I am actually on my third week of summer vacation, but I have been crazy busy with school, organizing, sitting in on interviews, and preparing for a presentation for our technology grant on Wednesday. Once Wednesday is over I am finally going to relax a bit more.

I noticed that besides my blog post yesterday that I hadn't blogged in a few months! So I decided to link up with Natalie from What the Teacher Wants for her 
Summer Bucket List Linky!!

Last year my teaching partner and I received a tech grant. We received 30 iPad minis. All this year we met up with the other grant recipients to discuss how our technology was working out. We applied for sustainability funds earlier this year and will be receiving 20 more iPad minis. We now will both have iPads for all our kids. On Wednesday we will be presenting at a Symposium for our County to share our results with teachers. Super excited, but glad this is the last bit of school work.

Thanks to Amanda Madden at Teaching Maddeness for her series on lesson planning! I finally sat down and created a year long scope and sequence for next year with my grade level partner! It felt so good! Of course I am going to try to update and create a few products for my TPT store. I have such good intentions during the school year, but time just slips by me.

My hubby always loves when summer arrives. He says I am so much happier and nicer instead of being stressed out. We always joke that he likes summer wife better or summer wife actually likes her hubby! So of course I have been trying to be the good summer wife these past couple of weeks! I make him coffee in the morning, yummy cocktails at night, and am actually fun on Sunday night. Tonight I cooked him a delicious dinner! He loves that I get us all caught up on stuff around the house too! 

I am just super excited to not be getting up at 5:30 every morning. I love waking up, having my cup of coffee, and watching a bit of the Today Show or Kelly and Michael. I have been hitting my workout classes on a daily basis too. It feels so awesome to workout consistently again with others!  And yes I do love that my clothes are fitting loser again. Of course summer wouldn't be the same without some fun new summer shoes!! I have been looking for some new brown/natural and black fun wedges!! I have my eye on a few, but haven't purchased yet! I would love to go on a little vacation with the hubby, but just hanging out by the pool would work too!!

Happy Summer!!!


  1. I love the summer wife thing! My husband takes over in the winter because his work is less busy (landscaping) so it's nice to have that balance. Although, I have yet to get my summer wife on because I have been enjoying the couch too much lol!

    1. Oh, I like that...winter hubby!! I need to get me one of those!!

  2. My husband like the summer wife much better too! :-) It's good motivation for me to keep being good to him.

    1. That is hilarious! Cheers to be Summer Wives!!
