Currently... I'M BAAAACK!

Hello bloggy friends. I am SO so sorry I've neglected you all for the past week and a half. I know, I know.. I'm a terrible bloggy friend :( I have been traveling the country with hubs and family! We went to Las Vegas for the first time and stayed on the strip, stayed at a beautiful resort called Lake Las Vegas, saw the Hoover Dam, hiked lots of mountains, and went to Sequoia National Forest. It was an AH-mazing vacation.. but now we need a vacation to recover from our vacation! :) (I will post more pictures and all about our trip in a separate post!)  I am back and plan to blog LOTS... y'all are gonna be sick of me soon! 

I promise to share lots of fun ideas and goodies though!! By the way.. how much do you LOVE my new blog design? Megan over at A Bird in the Hand Designs is SO talented! I absolutely LOVED working with her and I am in awe of what she came up with! What better way to return to the blogging world then with the amazing Farley's currently?

Listening: We barely ever watch this show, but we visited the shop in Vegas so we figured we'd check out an episode!

Loving: Hubs has been off since we left for our trip last Tuesday, and is taking off until Monday. This is the longest time we've had together since we got married and are thoroughly enjoying it!

Thinking: It's already 4th of July?! Yikes.. that's like the summer halfway point! Summer.. slow down!

Wanting: It was a balmy 115-126 degrees in Vegas.. but seriously, it wasn't that bad! I'll take that dry heat over our 80 degrees and humid any day! We have 6 days of rain in the forecast here in Ohio though... seriously :( Yuck!

Needing: I have lots of grad work to catch up on and SO many TPT products in the works! I just finished up my classroom decor turquoise, lime, and yellow pack! I am obsessed with it! It is over 175 pages of classroom decoration goodies like banners, word wall headers, library labels, name tags, number labels, and so much more! I plan on posting it tomorrow and offering an opportunity to get it for free.. so don't forget to check back! :)

And with Vegas inspiration, I started working on another classroom decor pack: Neon Lights! I am in love with it.. makes me want to change my classroom colors (hubs would not be as happy, though!) haha! I can't wait to share it with you :)

Tips, tricks, or hints: Blog about what you love. If there's one thing I've learned from reading and sharing, if you don't love it or aren't passionate about it, it isn't worth sharing! That's the stuff worth reading :)

All righty, I am off to enjoy a movie with the hubs! As a thank you for all of you for sticking around... my TPT store will be 20% off through tomorrow night at midnight! YIPPEE!! Head on over and shop ;)

Make sure you check back tomorrow! I will be sharing the winner of my Bloglovin' Giveaway and a chance to win my new classroom decor pack. Thanks for reading :)

    1. It was really an amazing trip! Totally worth it, and they're right.. you can really make it any kind of trip because there is so much to do! I am from a small town just West of Akron!

  4. Hi Amelia! Just stopping by from Currently! Your new blog design is very cute!! I'm jealous that you went to the real pawn shop in Vegas-- how fun! Where are in Ohio are you? I'm from the Toledo area and we have had non-stop rain lately... with more on the way! Last summer, we hardly had any rain!! Enjoy your weekend :)
