Hello September!

Hey hey hey!

Can you believe that it's September already?! Not me!  Not only did August FLY by, but the year is going by so quickly!

Here in New Zealand we are so close to our Spring holiday break.  3 and a half weeks and we will be on the count down to summer!  Makes me feel better about the summer snaps that have filled my insta feed over the past few months.

Y'all know Farley right?  Surely you do.  I'm heading over to her blog - Oh Boy 4th Grade to link up for another CURRENTLY!

Listening - It's just come on New Zealand Netflix, and I'm jumping on the band wagon... Noooooot sure if it's my cup of tea.  I'm not affected by blood and guts, but the demonic supernatural things I'm not really a big fan of.  We'll see if this carries on to become an addiction, or if I stop at episode 3...

Loving - Ummmm this was HAAARRRRDDD!!!  I am loving so many things right now.  I'm totally 100% in LOOOOOOVVEEE with Blab.im - seriously you should all get in on this!  I've made so many super fun friends, and the PD that you get from the conversations is incredible!  Head over there now and subscribe to some of my most favourite blabs - The Teacher Blab Show, Global Edventures (Which is one that I'm a co-host for!!), and the awesome Shameless Sunday Teacher Talk.
These are co-hosted by some of your favourite bloggers - Mrs Shipley, Miss Meg, Sheila Jane teaching, Ms Idealistic, And SOOOOO many more!
Check out these pictures for a few more things I'm loving right now - including my super cute nephew who is 7 weeks old today!

Thinking - Yeah so the biggest news item in my country right now is allllll about us getting a new flag.  You'd seriously think that we were all being sent to war or something.  It's a bit ridiculous.  The issue? Our flag looks too similar to Australia's.  Which is true.  But hey!

Wanting - Well part of this is happening!  I'm heading to Australia next weekend for a belated 30th birthday trip with my mum, cousin, and aunt.  We are heading to Melbourne and going to see Lion King.  I am excited.  I really want a loooong holiday, preferably on a tropical island with a cocktail in my hand.

Needing - Be positive.  It's something I need to work on.  I don't want to get jaded about things.  I want to be a shining light in a dark place.

Finally, my three goals!

  1. I need to do a month sugar free.  Starting tomorrow - because I've got a beer in my hand right now...
  2. I teach piano too!  Woop woop.  I only have one student right now, but I will be putting a flyer out this week so hopefully a few more kids want to become awesome too!
  3. I've started boot camp and pump, but I need to get some cardio into my routine!  Countdown to summer is on!
Have a great week!  What are you looking forward to this month?


  1. Hello Erin - I can feel your energy!! Go girl!! We're gearing up for the Rugby World Cup over here in England so I'm liking that photo of your littlest supporter :) New Zealand is a place I'd love to visit one day - my daughter has just returned from a gap year in Australia but she never got over to experience New Zealand so maybe she will one summer holiday and I'll go with her? Special Teaching at Pempi’s Palace

  2. Oh wow, I taught piano for 15 years before switching to SpEd. LOVED it, but could no longer afford to do it full-time. Good luck & enjoy your upcoming break!! Jen
