Listening: I have become addicted to using the AOL Radio and Pandora apps. It's such a good way to find new music! Apparently, I had made an Icona Pop station on Pandora the last time I used it because that is what started playing when I opened the app!
Loving: My husband took a vacation day today so we could have a family day! Our weekends are so hectic, so it was very nice to have a day where the four of us could spend time together. We took the girls to Bellaboo's, and indoor play place for kids. There are different rooms with various activities. We spent a good portion of our afternoon in the dress-up room,grocery store room, water table room,and the baby room.

Olivia started walking really well this week. She looked so
silly walking around in this giant waterproof smock!
Thinking: I need to go to bed! I know, it's only 8:30 on a Friday night! I am meeting at 5:15 tomorrow morning to run 20 miles. I need some sleep! The thought of waking up at 4 am does not sound to good right now... But I am excited to run my farthest yet during my Chicago Marathon training!
Wanting: I want to go shopping! I love clothes in general, but I really love getting back to school clothes. My mom and sister were at j crew today and texted a taunting picture of the merchandise. I have such a craving to go there and to the Banana Republic factory stores!
Needing: My classroom is in shambles! I haven't had a good chance to get in there without my girls to do some serious work! Isabella is a good helper, but tends to make more work for me by getting out a zillion toys and manipulatives! If I spent a couple hours in there, I'd feel a lot better!
B2S Must Haves: 1. The new outfit goes back to what I'm wanting, too! It's fun to wear something new and special for that first day (or week!) of school! 2. I use address labels on everything! I print the students' names and the name of the folder/notebook/etc so it can be easily labeled that first day of school. 3. This year I'm making the switch from notebooks to a binder with loose leaf paper for my RTI notes, staff meeting notes, and collaboration ideas. I just love these chevron and flowers binder covers from Kinder Doodles. They will be perfect for organizing my growing collection of binders!
