Top 10 Things I Want To Do This Summer

I am linking up with Mrs. Jump's Class to bring you...
1. Get Fit for the wedding: Okay... I admit I LOATHE running and dieting and going to the gym but I need to suck it up and start working out and looking good for my wedding next May. We are going to go wedding dress shopping this summer so I will be starting as soon as my summer starts on June 5th! 
I feel better about myself when I'm wearing workout clothes because that means I'm one step closer to possibly maybe working out.

2. ORGANIZE! If you saw my last post you know classroom organization is my mission for the summer! I cringe every time I look at the closet in my room and my desk area! I just reorganized it in January and it already looks like a tornado hit it! I want to organize all my paper stuff into monthly binders and my centers into labeled shoe boxes so when I am ready for them all I have to do is pull it and GO!

3. Find a new TV series me and my fiance will watch together.  He works ALL THE TIME and during the school year we get to see each other about once or twice a week for a few hours. He records our favorite shows and waits until we can both watch them together.Our favorites, Sleepy Hollow and Grimm don't start again until the Fall. If you have any TV shows you love please share!
Sleepy Hallow, such a strange combo of creepy/historical/fantasy- SO good! And who knew that Icabod Crane was a TOTAL hottie?!?  GRIMM! I am rabidly addicted to this show. It's my favorite.
As you can see we like mystery thrillers :] 

4. Learn to cook more than just spaghetti! I can cook a few things but I want to expand my cooking knowledge this summer. I also want to learn how to cook more healthy dinners. When me and my fiance get married I want to know how to make some really great but healthy dinners instead of just grabbing fast food or pizza every night. 

5. HAVE FUN! We bought season passes to Six Flags over Texas and Hurricane Harbor this year! So we planning on going to those places as much as possible but we would also like to go other fun places such as the beach, a few Texas Rangers games, the movie theater as well. Anything to beat the Texas heat!

6. CRAFT! I love to craft, paint and glitter things! My fiance will not go with me to Hobby Lobby or Micheals because He know I have to look at everything and I can not leave with out buying something! Most of the projects on my craft list have to do with either my wedding or my classroom{I know I should be even thinking about next years classroom but I can't help myself:]}. 
Whoever said Disney was the happiest place on earth has clearly never been to Michael's. | Confession Ecard |

7. CREATE!  I want to grow my little TPT store there will be days where I will have nothing planned and I can just sit down in front of my computer and create all day{hopefully!} I am planning to do a big back to school unit and getting a jump start on creating things for the fall season.

8. Growing my Jamberry Nails Business: I have ventured into the world of Jamberry Nails. I love this product because it is so easy to use, there is no dry time, no messy polish you have to deal with, and they last with out you having to mess with them during the school day. You just stick them and forget them! The last couple months of school is always crazy and this business got put on the back burner for a while, but I am ready to get back at it! Check out my Jamberry Facebook page and like it for exclusive news and special deals from me about Jamberry! Check it out here!

9. Grow to be a better teacher: I really want to read and visit some great PD this summer. I am finishing up my second year of teaching kinder and I know there is so much more I can learn about this whole teaching thing! I am not able to make it to I TEACH K this year but hopefully I can go next summer. If you have know or have a read a great PD books recently, let me know! I would love to know and try your favorites!

10. RELAX and SLEEP: Looking at my calendar for this summer, It looks like it will be a crazy busy summer with all the wedding planning, crafting, etc. so I want to have some days to just RELAX and waste the day away napping.

That's all for now! I would love to hear your plans for the summer as well! Maybe I can add some of your ideas to my list!
