September Currently

September...really?!?!  Where did summer go? But fall is on it's way! Yay! With it already being September, that means it is time to link up with Farley at Oh, Boy 4th Grade for the September Currently. 

Here is what I am 'currently' doing! 

LISTENING- I am currently listening to the "Best of the 90's" on Spotify while I sit next to my teacher BFF, Lindsey at Miss Law's Kinders and blog :) Yes, we are 90's babies! I know, I know...youngins! But it is, oh, so nice, to have a teacher friend that you can just sit, type, talk, and create together!

LOVING- I am REALLY loving this three day Labor Day weekend.  Even though I didn't mark too much off of my to-do list, I got to enjoy quality time with my husband, family, and friends. And I can say I got 'some' of my stuff marked off the to-do just keeps growing. 

THINKING- I have been daydreaming about favorite season! I am so many great memories from the fall (band, trips, pumpkin patches, bomb fires, etc).  It also means it is officially time to break out the sweaters, boots, and scarves! Might have to get the s'mores out soon, too...just not at our house!  Unfortunately, we will NOT be hosting bomb fires this year at our house, after my husband accidently burned our entire field during the last bomb fire. more fires of any kind at my house! 

WANTING- I am wanting to finish my two quilts I have for a mommy-to-be and other for our queen size bed.  The queen size one has been about a year long project, I just literally do not have the space in my house to lay the entire thing out....seriously, nowhere! Even if we move all of our living room furniture, I still can't lay it out! I have to go to my in-laws to finish it! I can't wait to get both quilts done though so I can put them on our barn and get some pictures with my new big girl camera! Here is a quilt I finished last week for an expecting teacher friend of mine! Her little bundle of joy will be here in December. This will be perfect for their IU room! 

NEEDING- I am needing to complete assignments for my online classes, but just thinking about it make me want to cringe! I am trying not to be a procrastinator, but long weekends like this are really testing my procrastinating skills!

3 TRIPS- I have never been to Vegas, but I know my husband and I would absolutely love it! I am making it a goal to go to the TPT conference in Vegas next summer (hopefully it will still be there), and I will take the hubs along with me! I think it is just a place you must see before you die! The other day we were watching the 10 Coolest Places on Earth, and they were showing footage of New Zealand....OH MY! Have you seen that place! With it's massive mountains, unique glaciers, and beautiful water, how could you not want to go here?!?! 

The last place will be Napa Valley! Wine country?!?! Who would not want to go there? I would love to visit this sunny, hilly, country side in our beautiful country!

Thanks for stopping by to see what I am currently doing! Can't wait to see what you are up to!!! 


  1. I am so impressed with your quilt-it is beautiful! That is crazy to know how big it is but gives you good reason to go to your inlaws so you can finish! I have been to Vegas and Napa-and for the reasons you stated above I am pretty sure you will love them! Napa Valley is beautiful and Vegas is just plain fun!! I am sure your hubby will appreciate coming along for that trip!!! New Zealand does look beautiful and might have to be added to my list!! Glad I found you and your blog! :)

  2. I am with you on the fall weather. I grew up on the east coast and fall was always my favorite time of the year. It just isn't the same here in the desert!

  3. I see all your reason for wanting fall but that means winter is close behind and I'm avoiding that at all costs!

    I would love to start quilting again but I'm afraid of more stitches. I'm never cutting out quilt squares again. Your quilts make me inspired though so maybe one day. Baby steps.

    Napa Valley- I'm up for a road trip. :)
