March Currently!

As always, I'm linking up with the oh so amazing Farley for her monthly currently! I seriously look forward to these each month!

Listening: I LOVE this show! Viola Davis is badass! I'm on the second part of the season finale. It's getting sooooo good.

Loving: My new notebook! I found this note pad in the storage room and decided to pretty it up with some of my graphics I bought during the TPT sale. (Hello, my name is Alexis and I'm addicted to sales and graphics) I've been trying to be very intentional with my planning and home time so I'm not overwhelming myself during the week (who else does that?!). So far, so good even though I just noticed I wrote the date wrong for Sunday! :]

Thinking: I should probably be finishing up my March Weekly Homework Packets instead of blogging but oh well! At least I have a plan for Week 1 that I sketched out during a meeting. (see above!)

Wanting: I totally wish I was back in Seaside, Oregon with my love, enjoying the rays, sea air and the freedom! Who else can not wait until summer?!

Needing: Sweets. Enough said?? I treated myself to a tiny tub of this delicious ice cream at the grocery store! Maybe once I get my homework packets done, I can reward myself! :]

Spring Break Plans: Sadly for me, my spring break is not until the second week of April. Fortunately I already know what I'll be doing... MOVING! My boyfriend and I are finally making the jump and moving in together. I can not wait! So from here until Spring Break I'll be packing!

Happy Friday, February 20th! {Vacay Edition}

It's been an amazingly long time since I've done a Friday post. As I'm relaxing by the fire with my boyfriend near by and The 100 in the background, I thought why not!

One - 4 Years Down!

Jonathan and I are celebrating our 4 year anniversary in Seaside, Oregon this week! I had Monday and Tuesday off this week for our "mid-winter" break. So we decided to make a week of it and go down to our FAVORITE place. We still have two more days left here! :)

Two - Dinner In! 

In our room we are lucky enough to have a full kitchen with tools. Every year we come to one of these time shares, we always spend one night making a meal! This time around we thought surf and turf sounded delish. I was able to snap a few pictures during the process so I'll be posting the recipe soon on the shrimp but you can find how we cook our steaks here. I can't take all the credit! Jonathan taught me everything I know about making the perfect steak.

Three - Dutch Bros!

Raise your hand if you LOVE Dutch Bros as much as I do?! Sadly, there is only a handful in Washington so anytime I'm in Oregon, I go about 500 times.

Four - Designs by Alexis!

Yes, I decided to start blog designing!! I've always been a computer nerd and created designs for here and there but never for other people. So far I've designed for two amazing bloggers, Angie from Lucky Little Learners and Brooke from Joyful Rigor with Ms. Jones. I'm so thankful for this new journey and I can't wait to create for more fabulous bloggers!

Five - Weekly Homework Packets!

Lastly, let's put ONE school related subject in here. I've recently changed my entire homework structure within my classroom and it was the best decision I've made this year! We use to do a nightly homework problem in our Math INBs but we always ran out of time with our lesson. I always had kids forgetting their INBs at home or them getting ripped so I knew it was time for a change. I decided to go to making these simple yet completely connected to our learning weekly homework packets. Again, best decision I've ever made! Look for a more detailed post coming soon!
