CURRENTLY October, for classroom, and you

WOW it can't be OCTOBER already
but it is!!!
and you know what that means....

before the CURRENTLY... I wanted to show you what I came up with.....
click on the pic to take you there :)
you get 12 months of CURRENTLY templates for your classroom....
I made 3 different variations for each month
one is full blown color and decor... if you don't have to worry about color copies this template is for you
then I made a less color version with a little bit of color
and the last...
less is more because this template gives your kiddos the ownership of decorating their own CURRENTLY

 here is a little looky at some of the months :)
 and of course I had to have a mustache in there too

 alrighty ENOUGH about that... now on to OUR CURRENTLY!!!

 easy peasy...
I am super stoked at my progress in walking, eating right, and my wt. loss

didn't mean for this pic to be huge... but I copied it from my FB page and it won't let me shrink it

SOOOOOO to treat myself I ordered some new shoes...

OK I know they are the MEN'S
I do NOT care they are ORANGE
and I PUFFY <3 to the infinity
and so my options for the lady's was pink or purple
yeah NO
me loves some orange
so a boy shoe it was!!!
and did I mention it GLOWS in the dark
orange NEON and GLOWS...
be still my heart {love}

my fave book is

I love Chris Van Allsburg
 so of course I had to choose one of his books
for my fave book for the October Season

here is your template...

the BOOK section is for you to share your fave OCTOBER SEASON book
that means you can share FALL, Halloween, Autumn, or all of those!!!

and PLEASE remember the rule of 3...
you need to please comment on the 2 links ahead of your link and then come back and comment on the link after your link...
this is a way to spread the love and visit new blogs and well it is just my RULE... and not to mention nice (and my RULE)
 and it hurts feelings when you don't give the love (aka you don't follow the rule)... really it does I get the emails that say they didn't get the love :) so RULE of  3 PLEASE

alright let the links begin...

  17. Ok, I am the newbie but how to do you take the template and write on it? Help!

    1. When I first started I put the jpeg in powerpoint, added text and then took a screenshot.
      For a screenshot on a mac, press command, shift, and 4 all at the same time. Highlight the area you want in the shot. I'm not sure about a windows machine. You can use this tutorial.
      Now that I am a little more tech savvy I open the jpeg in preview and annotate. (Under tools.) It all depends on what systems you are most comfortable with.

    2. I right click and Save As to my desktop. Then I use picmonkey.com to edit the photo to add text. Save and post to your blog!

  18. Im totally jealous of your ASICS! I just got a new pair of pink addidas running shoes.

    Teaching With Style

  24. I LOVE your currently! I love your packet of currently for the classroom!! I wonder how I could get kinders to do this (and maybe put it in a scrapbook).

    You look great by the way. I have been losing weight too. It took forever for something to stick...but finally my brain got in the right place and things clicked. I have now kept the 70 pounds I lost off for one year! I am wishing you all the best!!! I tried for years before I finally started to lose. Keep at it! Feel great! Have fun!!

  25. Absolutely love your currently board, I love the idea of having the students fill out one themselves as well. Such a fun idea, I've never thought of having the kids do their own! Thank you for sharing! :)

  26. Very jealous of your shoes! Your currentlys are going viral:-)

  28. Hi! I am impressed with your lifestyle change! I, too, struggle with the same problem, and I have a 2 year old boy that I just HAVE to get healthier for! I want to be a fun, happy, healthy mom instead of an achy, cranky, tired mommy! (wow, look at your face in your two pics!)

    I LOVE reading your blogs! You ALWAYS make me laugh...and I LOVE to laugh! Thanks!

    Also, I hope your 'bumpy start' does settle down. I had a 'bumpy' year last year and this year feels like cake! So nice. Good luck!

  38. OMG. Those shoes are awesome!! I need to get myself some new shoes.... mine are so boring compared to all the fun ones coming out.

  39. Very excited about linking up with you for your Currently, but I'm a newbie around here and just can't figure out how to get the template to where I can fill it in and post it to my blog. If you could PLEASE HELP me I would be so thrilled!!

    1. copy the template as a pic and put into a power point... then put text boxes into the the blanks and add your answers... than save as a jpeg... upload into a blog post and then link on up :)

  40. Farly!! HELP! I am new to this whole blogging world and I badly want to participate in the "Currently" activity. However, I can't figure out how to take it from your blog, put in my info, and post it on my blog. Yikes! I am sure it is easy, but I have no idea how to do it. I would love your help. By the way, I LOVE your blog!!
