Wow!  It's August already!

Where did my summer break go?

I only have one more week and then I'm back full time!

Actually, I only have half a week because I have two days of workshops next week.

I don't know about you, but the "back to school" nightmares have already started.  You know the ones!  Where you have the class from...well you know where... and they are so unruly and you can't control them no matter what magical idea you pull out of your pocket.  Ugh!  I hate those!  Do you get those too?

It's also time for Farley's Currently Linky Party.

Here goes mine...

I love the back to school must haves.

I have been obsessed with polka dots this summer.  Especially black and white.  I have found that I am using a lot of it in my color scheme this year.  It is looking GREAT too!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my Scotch Personal Laminator.  It has really been a useful tool over the summer to help me prepare for next year and I am sure that I will be using it A LOT this school year.

Lastly, I MUST GO GET MY HAIR HIGHLIGHTED.  For those of you who participated in my Guess My Age Birthday Giveaway, you know that I just turned 42.  Well, let's just say that I'm currently a natural blonde with gray highlights.  The other day someone asked me if I had my hair frosted because if so, it looked great!

I really just didn't know how to respond at that moment.

Now, I must say that gray hair does look beautiful on many women, including my mother;  BUT I'M NOT READY YET!

So, I have made myself a hair appointment and my "frosty" look will be gone before the start of the school year.

So that is my Currently for August.  Go link up and share your Currently with us.

Happy Blogging!

  4. I definitely need a massage too! I was just thinking that last night. I always seem to tense up near my shoulders & neck! I adore my Scotch laminator too. It has been attached to my hip lol!
