July Currently and exciting news!

I am here to share a whole bunch of exciting news with you!  I am linking up on 2 different blogs today AND I have a new product that is on sale AND I have a surprise coming your way tomorrow!  Woo Hoo!

So first up, I am linking up with Big Time Literacy again!  It is day 2 of the July Blogging Challenge.  Yes, yes, no need for applause.  I made it to day 2! haha!  Today's blogging topic is about our background in education. Those that have been following me for awhile probably already know, but there may be some new followers out there so let me tell you a little about myself.  I am a mom of 3 boys.  My husband and I live in Virginia just outside of Northern Virginia.  I have been teaching for 7 years now, 4 years in first, 1 in fifth, and 2 in second.  I also have my Master's degree in Reading and Literacy.  I opened my TPT store and began blogging about 2 years ago.  I joined a great group of ladies last November to begin a collaborative reading blog called Adventures in Literacy Land.  I love working with all of you to share so many great resources and ideas!

I am also sharing with you my July currently!  I haven't done this one in awhile and it is about time that I rejuvenate this blog of mine so here ya go!  You can link up with Farley's currently too!

So the only time that I ever get to watch TV is during the summer.  I become a Netflix "binger" watching anything and everything.  How do I get to do this with 3 boys running around all the time?  That would be because of nap time!  Naps were the greatest thing ever invented!  Two hours of solid quiet time!  Yes, I know that I should be cleaning the house and doing some laundry, but nope.  My couch is way too comfy! ;)

Okay, are you ready for my new product reveal?  If you are a Facebook follower then you have already received the inside scoop!  As I mentioned yesterday, my summer project is to organize my classroom library.  I have been working the past few days on my newest product, book labels!  This is going to be a necessity when it comes to my library. I am going to be sharing with you guys all about that soon!  But for now, you can pick up my classroom library labels on sale for only $2!!

I am also ready to share with you some wonderful news.  I am participating in a blog hop this weekend!  Happy Independence Day!  Be sure to come back and collect all kinds of fun freebies!


  1. I am a Netflix addict too. It's hard to find time to watch (like you said) but when I do I'm on the couch for hours at a time! I'm waiting for my husband to get a little time so we can start Orange is the New Black. I keep hearing good things about it.

    Love those labels!

  2. You are one busy blogger, Jessica! Your new labels are so adorable! Looking forward to seeing the fourth of July blog hop!

  3. Your labels are adorable! Naptime is my favorite part of summer vacation as well!

  4. Being home with my newborn has led to endless TV watching...oops! I get out each day, but anytime I am home I end up watching my usual stuff. If my husband is home then we binge watch. Just finished Breaking Bad and now going back to finish Boston Legal.
