It's that time again...

Before the CURRENTLY...
let's talk about RAK
RAK stands for
RANDOM Act of Kindness
it means it is RANDOM
you just thought of it...
NOT something you do every year
so when you fill out the RAK space
think of something NEW to do...
it is RANDOM
NOT something you have done time and time again...
ok now that the details of that are out...
here we go with my Randomness...
I am going to feature 3 blogs from the November Currently
I am just going to have Bub, Hub, and me me me  pick 3 numbers
first Bub's number
he said two five four so I am going with #254

Ms. Hutten's Buttons...

I have a block parTAY

NOW for the Currently

I really need to thank my hubs for getting Bub and I a new stroller for walking... Bub and I walked so much in his other stroller the tires went bad... and then got holes and so...
Hubs looked and looked for one that could have a higher wt. and wasn't the cost of a small used car!!!
he also found a coupon online and wha laaa a new jogging stroller and we are walking again!!!

Bub is on the waiting list for Pre-School *tear*
he will start fingers crossed in January
my parents watch him right now and they need a break
AND I want him to get some socialization and interaction with kiddos his own age
I know it is for his own good BUT I am terrified... YES I am one of those MAMAs
it took us so long to become parents... I just have a small tiny itty bitty problem with CONTROLLING his environment and safety and well pretty much everything LOL
he will be fine I know... the kinder teachers at my school HIGHLY recommend it and well they are possibly the bestest Kinders I know so I trust them :)
plus it is just half day and 3 times a week...

I really want to learn to make clip art and font.  I love to doodle and I love writing!!! I think I could really make some cute schtuff... just need to know how... anyone anyone...

Dear Santa... I need a new laptop or Ipad... PURTY PLEASE

RAK--- already talked about this...
if you decide to give your mailman a gift great that is RANDOM
if you ALWAYS give your mailman a gift great BUT not RANDOM...
I want you to think of something you can do soon
it doesn't have to cost a lot of money...
think think think...

your turn...
remember the RULE OF 3
head on over to 2 before your link and comment and then come back and leave a comment at the 1 behind yours :)

when you link up... put your state's abbreviation before your name
a follower suggested this so we know where everyone is from
thought it was a good idea
let's see what state wins...
(had to say that... I am also cheering for Mississippi my home state)

link up my friends



  1. I absolutely love your blog. I enjoy reading about what is going on at your school & with your family. It always puts a smile on my face!

  2. A good stroller makes all the difference!! I loved the one I had for my girls, made going out so much more enjoyable. Thanks so much for always having such a fun linky. I love seeing what everyone is up to!

    Surfin' Through Second

    1. Forgot my state too!! Hawaii in the house;)

  3. Ooops!!! Forgot to add my state...NC!!!

    ”Dots” of Fun!

  4. Three cheers for new strollers! Maybe you will get some "samples" from other companies to try out and then that can rest the new wheels for awhile. Before you know it, Bubs will be joggin next to ya!

  5. Thanks for hosting as always! Enjoy the new stroller.

  6. Thanks for hosting...I'm a very-excited first-timer!! We call my son "Bubs" too, which is short for Bubba Doodles. We can't call him that anymore, because he is 12!! We do get away with still calling him Bubs though...Your little Bubs is adorable.

  7. Thanks for the party! Love the "Where you're from piece" I always wonder where people are from, especially when they post pictures. Happy December!

  8. I love how everyone is adding their state this time! I can't wait to see if there are any fellow New York teacher bloggers out there!

    Hello Mrs Sykes

  11. OMGosh!!! A big thank you to your hubs for picking my number!!! This is a happy day! I love following your fabulous blog and getting a shout out from you is like winning the lottery! Thank you for all the laughs and smiles you bring to me. Now to get busy with my one of my favorite things:: Currently! YaY!!!

  12. Once you get your IPAD you will spend hours making new fonts (I know I have!). Will keep my fingers crossed Santa brings you one!!!

  13. Loving the RAK portion. I hope to do many more this month. I too want to learn about making my own clip art. If you find out please share. I just purchased adobe creative cloud and it includes lightroom, photoshop, illustrator, muse, and many more programs for $19.99 a month. It's neat because I can use my mac or pc.

  14. I LOVE your blog. I am so in love with your use of the word snarky! My favorite word ever. I linked up for the first time. I am another Texas girl - transplanted actually from Michigan.

    So glad I found you!

  15. Farley was it you who did the one little word last year??? I loved that and SO doing it again this year (I completely forgot what my one little word for 2012 was…I'm going to do a better job this go around!)

  16. Thanks for posting such a fun linky party! It's great catching up on what's new with everyone, especially since December gets so crazy. Hope you get a new laptop, I just got mine after being a year and a half without and it's been wonderful!

    Fun in PreK-1

  17. Love your fun blog & glad to see another Texas girl in blog world! I'm your newest follower, and I'd love for you to drop by and check out my blog as well!.

    Have a great week,

  18. I love adding your state. I am in Florida and it always amazes me to see how many of us there are. On the flip side, I was born and raised in Rhode Island and hope to see a few from there too!

  19. Love the jogging stroller! That's awesome! I'm trying to get motivated to start jogging/gasping for air again!

  20. Farley - You are the best. I was so surprised when I popped over and found that you had featured my little blog. It means so much to me and it was definitely a RAK! Thanks so much again!

  21. I am in serious need of a new laptop! Notice I did not say want! :) I am pretty sure that mine is on its last leg. I get scared every time I have to boot her up. What a fun RAK idea too! I want to try and do something similar maybe once a month.

  23. Hey Farley, this is great! Have found so many awesome blogs through this thing! I, too, would love to know how to make clip art, or at least turn my by-hand doodles into acceptable computer clip art. If you find anything about this PLEASE post it! Thank you.

    Second Grade is Out of This World

  31. I am so glad to see another fun fourth grade teacher out there! So many times upper elementary get caught up in the standards and forget about the fun! My students learn so much more when I do something creative or crazy to get them thinking! Instead of just copying notes for the Rev War, we are forming a protest! No taxation without representation!!!!! I can't wait! I am your newest follower!

  32. Ok yes I was recently thinking that I wanted to learn to make clipart too but I can't even draw stick people. I think that might be a problem! lol :)


  33. If you learn to make clipart, I would love a tutorial. I bought some app or software (can't remember) to make clipart, but it was terrible (or was that the artist)?

  36. My son is also going to Kinder this fall and I'm a nervous wreck about it too. He hasn't really been in a "Pre-School Program" so I worry that all the extra love he's received from the Grandparents (they watch him during the day) will translate into issues in the classroom.

    I feel your pain! It's a stressful decision to make!

    Life In Middle School

  37. Yay! I just found you and I am going to have to link up for Jan! I guess great minds think alike because my last post was all about RACKs! We are doing this in our classroom!
