I'm linking up all over the place!


Hey friends!  I should be asleep.  I've got a splitting headache, but I can't seem to shut my brain off. So instead, I'm writing my very first currently post of 2015!  And also sharing some goals for the year - as seems to be habit on January 1st!

First up - Currently with Farley.


It's summer here in New Zealand, and I'm loving the relaxation that is FINALLY here!  I had a really stressful year in 2014, and so I'm looking forward to creating a bit more of the old work life balance this year.

Listening/Loving - You get the idea

Thinking - SUPER exciting news.  I've joined up with 5 other bloggers/TPT sellers and we have started a brand new collaborative blog called "The Literacy Ladder" bringing you literacy ideas across the elementary grades.  Check it out here!

Wanting - I want to head to a tropical island and have someone wait on me... I'm being pretentious...

Needing - So I changed everything at the end of last year.  Job, school, grade level, city, house... Everything is new this year.  So I'm in the need for a place to live come January 26thish...

YES - I will get healthy.  Not just lose weight, but actually start eating better and exercising more.  My brother is getting married soon (not date yet, probably October 2015, or March 2016) so I want to look good in the photos!

MAYBE - I'm hoping to go travelling some time this year.  Hopefully I'll make it somewhere!  Even if it's just to Australia...

I WISH - Oh gosh I would LOVE to go to the TPT conference in Vegas.  It would be a dream come true!  

And now I'm heading over to The Third Wheel to share my 2015 resolutions with you!


Most of these are pretty self explanatory.  I just need to start prioritising myself!  

I hope you're all well rested after your winter break and that you are ready to head back into the new year with gusto!  I'm starting to think about what my class will look like this year - at this stage I'm thinking a grey and yellow theme.  

7 year olds like grey and yellow right?

  2. Hi Erin~
    I love the idea of your new collaborative blog! I'll head over become a follower! We will be house hunting near the end of 2015 as we head back to the US. Good luck with the house hunt. Sometimes it's refreshing to be doing lots of new things. We are also enjoying summer weather here in the Bahamas. Enjoy your sunny warm weather too! And I hope you can make it to the conference. It's so worth it! I went last year and can't wait to go this year!
    Happy New Year!

  4. Haha, "Even if it's to Australia". That's so funny to me..since I live on the other side of the world and Australia has been on my list of dreamy places to visit…Although, since following you and Magic, Mistakes, and Mayhem on Instagram, I just told my husband my new dream place to visit is New Zealand!!! Oh, how I wish!
    Good luck with all that change!!!! WOW! Sounds exciting though.

    1. Oh you should totally come to New Zealand. It's nicer than Australia, because there's nothing here that is trying to kill you!! No crazy horrible snakes, spiders, ants, or crocodiles.
