Currently & A HUGE Giveaway!

Hi friends!! I'm happy to be linking up with Farly from Oh' Boy Fourth Grade for her February Currently for my very first time. Now that I'm pretty comfortable with this whole blogging thing, I am LOVING joining all these fun linkys and monthly blogging traditions. So here it is:


*I wish you could hear my dogs. They are flippin' maniacs. They run back and forth through the house chasing each other and growling like their lions. One might think I owned Pit Bulls, but no friends, they are 4 pound chihuahuas (ok, one of them is a total fat lard at 6 pounds but I was trying to save her the embarrassment).
*I really have made some amazing bonds with blogging friends out there and it is so wonderful! I never thought I would be able to meet so many wonderful teachers from such random places.
*Yes, I'm thinking about brownies. Pathetic? Absolutely. But I'm not ashamed. I've been sitting in my bed being a huge waste of space, wallowing in self pity. The LEAST I could do is eat a brownie and gain 93 pounds since I haven't moved a muscle in my body and I just continue to shove like 600 calories down my throat per second for the past week. Holy crow, I am going to have some serious working out to do after recovering.
*I reallllllllly wish it were tomorrow already! I want to BUY BUY BUY! (hmm.... I'm turning into the cat lady - laughing at my animals, eating relentlessly, shopping online, eeeeeeek! next thing you know I'll be watching "My Soaps" or as one of my kids grandma's calls it "My Stories")
*CLEARLY my "needing to get out of bed" is accurate.
*I absolutely despise passive aggressive comments! It makes my skin crawl! I'd rather you just be upfront and yell than make little comments under your breath. And people who judge others based on how they look, feel, or act, or what they believe in or who they love makes me sad. In the words of my good friend Horton, "A person's a person no matter how small" and I have learned that getting to know someone for who they are can lead to some amazing friendships!

And there you have it - my February Currently! And now for a totally awesome giveaway that I am HONORED to be a part of. One of my bloggy besties Amanda Pauley has reached 100 followers - WOO HOO! She is such a sweetie and is full of awesome ideas! We are having a giveaway to celebrate her awesomeness! Be sure to stop by, check her out, and give her some love!

  6. Only 43 things??? Mine is at like 400! (Yes, I admit I have a shopping addiction!) I TOTALLY agree with the passive aggressive thing. I feel like there's a lot of that going around lately... well, maybe it just always goes around when it's a whole bunch of girls working together! :) Have a good weekend Khrys!

  9. Hi there!
    Thanks for the awesome comment you left me on my blog! I just read this post and first off, we should be buddies. I have two dogs, but one is a CHIWEENIE. That's right... half chihuahua and half wiener dog. He also is on the lard side, but he has been dropping lbs. here and there!

    SECOND! Browinies. I love brownies and I'm afraid you've created some sort of ripple effect where all these teachers are laying about on a Saturday wanting brownies! YUM!

    I love your blog. I started following and I'm so excited to make some bloggy friends! I teach third grade right now, but I was the last in, so I'm a floater. I may be teaching second or kindergarten next year. We'll see!

    So glad to "meet" you! I'm headed over to check out your giveaway and link up with your Super Bowl Sale! <3

I can just picture all the teachers stuffing brownies in their mouths this morning, oh well, we deserve it!! Xo hugs!

  13. Love your "currently" post. What a fun link party. I will have to try to link up sometime myself. What a great giveaway as well. Wow, I am amazed at all of the fun items to win. I entered your President's Day Unit giveaway, and now I am on to enter this giveaway too. I love hearing about your cute dogs. I have had two labs (yes 95 pound indoor dogs) for the past 11 years. Unfortunately we just had to say goodbye to one of our dogs in Nov. due to Cancer, and now my other sweet dog has Cancer as well and we don't have much longer with her. :0( So sad! So, enjoy your doggies and give them lots of hugs for me! Glad to have found your blog and I am a new follower.
