I can't believe it is finally here....October! The start of my favorite season....FALL! Cool weather, crisp mornings, scarves and boots here I come!!!!

The kids are in bed and the hubs and I are catching up with Top Chef DUELS. Love me a little Curtis! 

Fall. is. my. favorite. season of all! I am so excited that the weather will soon be getting cooler. It means I get to do a wardrobe switch. Jeans, boots and scarves here I come!

October is just plain long. There are no holidays to break up the month. I have parent conferences, district assessments, prep for report cards...aahhhh! Thanksgiving break cannot come soon enough after all that!

I hope to start decorating for Halloween this weekend! The hubs is not a fan of decorations of any kind. I have negotiated, over the years, for certain times of the year to be void of decorating complaints from him. October 1st-31st is my time to go all out for Halloween. I need to get crackin'!

I am not sure why, but I have the hardest time making an appointment to get my hair done. Every time I think about it, something comes up or I say "next weekend". Well, next weekend it is ! I have to get it done!

TRICK: Use paint sticks for students to hold their book spot in your classroom library. It helps keep your library organized and books in the right place. I give each student a class number so I can use the sticks over and over each year and they can easily keep track of where their books belong.

Head on over and visit Farley and link up and share what you are up to currently!


  1. Oh my I am exactly the same with my hair appointments. It got so bad last time that I wore my hair up in a pony and someone thought I'd dyed my hair brown! Embarrassing.

  2. I love, love, love your bookmarks for your classroom library! They are a great idea. Thank you for the trick. Have a great week.

  3. I am in desperate need to get my hair done too. Love the book mark idea.
