Linkin' Up

A few fab linkies are happening as we speak. Don't mind if I join in!

First up is Farley's Currently!
The hubs LOVES Phinneas and Ferb. It's kind of unhealthy. I think that's why I detest it so much :) I hear it's quite funny. But I want nothing to do with it LOL!

Speaking of the hubs, he came home from the hospital yesterday!! He had been there since Monday, and it was a loonnnggg week.... 2 small kids, second to last week of school, my own physical therapy, plus visiting him every day at the hospital (which was 35 miles from our house)... Although he still can't walk and gets tired very easily, so now it's like I have 3 kids LOL! But I'll take it! I love watching my kids love on their daddy <3

Because of all this stress, I am ready to be done with this school year. It's been a great year, but I need a break! 4 more days! Actually 3.5 because Thursday is an early release day :) Someone want to come and do my report cards for me..?

We've been frequent flyers at McDonald's and Culver's this week, so my fridge is EMPTY! Even our milk expired, which never happens around here!

The hubs and I are going to Cabo in July, so I'll be stalking other blogs for their vacay essentials! For some reason, I always forget my toothbrush when I go on vacation. DON'T FORGET YOURS! And the sunscreen! I'm a member of the Sunscreen Police... SPF 50 all the way over here! Make sure you (and especially your babies!) wear sunscreen!!!

Up next... Collaboration Cuties' Mentor Text Linky! 

I think I say this about every book, but this is one of my all-time favorite books!

In Wisconsin, kids often go "Up North" on vacation, and this book sparks  amazing connections for them. The book is beautifully written, with many similes, metaphors, and analogies. For example, it says that the logs on a log cabin are like shiny pretzels. I'm not doing it any justice trying to paraphrase... you seriously need to pick up a copy of this book!

Lastly, I'm going to share my Summer Bucket List courtesy of A Cupcake for the Teacher, Miss Kindergarten, and A Modern Teacher!
Honestly I wasn't going to join this one, because I like to be a free bird over summer, but there are a few things I'm planning on doing...

1. Cabo with the hubs. Here's where we're staying:
One of the top resorts in the world! Thank you, Time Share!

2. Play with my fam. With the hubs' new job, he will now be home for part of the summer. Here's one of our favorite places to go:

3. Read these school books:
The Jane Pollock book I have to read for work, but it looks like it should be a quick read... knock on wood. Anyone want to do a little book club for either?

4. Create! I have some math and Daily 5 ideas up my sleeve, but I refuse to let it consume me this summer. My number one priority this summer is to relax and spend time with my family!

OK, time to work! I made a good dent in my grading last night. Time to put on my game face and finish strong!!


  1. The resort looks beautiful! I am very jealous. We are moving across the country next week, which has left us with no money for vacation! Post lots of pictures!!!

  2. Thanks so much for sharing the mentor text! My husband and I gravitate up north into Wisconsin and Michigan every year... It looks like a wonderful read! Have a blast in Cabo!

  3. I am with you on not planning things in the summer. I only make a to do list, so I don't waste the whole summer.


  4. You can do it. You can do it! We went to Cabo for our Honeymoon 5 years ago. It's super hot in July, but sooooo worth it! If you like the beach, the sand is hot, so bring some good beach shoes. Have a blast, and I hope your husband has a speedy recovery so he can enjoy the vacay!

  6. That resort looks like heaven. I hope you have a terrific time and forget about all the stress. Hang in there...the end is near :)

  7. Please send the report card fairy to me when she is done with you :-) I am heading right over to check out the Mentor Text linky - I love it! Enjoy your summer! ~ Lisa

  8. I am a horrible blogging friend. I noticed you got a blog makeover and then looked back and you've had it almost a month (I love Megan by the way). It looks fabulous! And, I see YOU have started a linky so I will check more of that out as well. I promise to be a better bloggy friend! I'm hoping to have more time just to read!

    I think I have heard of Up North at the Cabin and it sounds amazing! I will have to add it to my wishlist!

    I'm going to live vicariously through you while you are in Cabo! Take lots of pictures!

  9. So glad your husband is home! Sounds like a rough end of the school year!!

    I Teach. What's Your Super Power?

  10. So glad your husband is home! My son used to love Phineas and Ferb, and I enjoyed watching it with him. Those two boys can get into so much and clean it up so quickly!

    Good luck with your report cards! That is one thing I don't miss about being in the classroom!!
