I'm "Currently"...

I just about had a heart attack when I tried to look on my blog this morning, and I couldn't find it. It.was.gone! GONE! All that hard work! What happened??? Well, back when I was starting out with blogging, I had NOT a clue what I was doing. For some reason, I thought ".com" sounded better than "", so I paid $ for my own domain. Well, guess what....I forgot to renew it. Apparently, I should have checked my gmail account. I would have seen the warnings over a month ago. So, today was the day Google shut me down. But, thanks to some great friends, I'm back in "". After a trip to Sweet Frog, we went back to my friend's house to hang out for a while. My friends were googling machines, and we figured it out. I simply had to remove my custom domain and I'm good to go. Thank God!!!

And, now onto Farley's Currently for October. I'm a little late to the party, but oh well! Click on the image below to join the Currently Linky fun!

LOVE this new Avicii album. He's the one who sings "Wake Me Up". I love the 80s, and even though this is new, it's 80s-ish.

I am LOVING fall! I love everything about it. The leaves, the cooler weather, pumpkin beer, pumpkin wine, Halloween...

I am SO fortunate to have my blog back!!! I am also fortunate to have such great friends-thanks Amy and Bethany!!!

I want a maid (at school/at home)...enough said about that.

People need to be more positive. Life is too short to be a "Debby Downer". C'mon people....lighten up! 

Treat-I LOVE Loft! I am short petite, and their clothes fit me very well (AKA I don't have to put duct tape on my pants to shorten the legs hem their pants). When my car drove me there on Sunday, and I found a little more clothing than I wanted, the nice saleslady told me about their Breast Cancer Awareness card. It costs $25, and as long as you spend $100 and use your Loft card, you save 25%. So, she used the discount, on top of my teacher's discount (she made a mistake) plus a $20 off coupon!!! I took those bags and ran! 

One more thing, if you use Storia the e-reader app from Scholastic, I have a great tip. Don't create bookshelves for each child, or you will drive yourself nuts. Just create genre bookshelves, and assign the books to the shelves. The kids LOVE using Storia, and so do I! I beats cassette players (and tapes)-yes I really did type that-hands down!

  1. Oh My Goodness... I think I would have a heart attack if my blog all of a sudden disappeared! I am so glad you got everything back in working order! Fall is my favorite season too! It makes me happy!
