I am always excited to link up with Farley for Currently!  Here goes nothin'...

Listening:  I am currently listening to HGTV's Flipping the Block.  Does anyone else love that show as much as me?  I can't wait for the season finale next week, but I will miss Josh shouting, "People of the block!!!!"  haha

Loving: I love HEB's packaged guacamole in the produce section.  It is fresh, so it tastes pretty much like homemade without all the work.  It could use a touch more lime juice buuuuttt....  Anyway, I never splurge on it, because it's cheaper for me to make my own.  Plus, my daughter doesn't like avocado, so I have to eat it all by myself.  (This is really not a problem, but I SHOULDN'T.)  Well, today I splurged and got myself the little container of the spicy kind, and it is soooo good.  I had it on a whole wheat low carb tortilla with some chicken for lunch, and it was awesome. 

Thinking: Any other Texas teachers frustrated with TEA and the gaps created by the new math TEKS.  I am struggling trying to figure out where to start my instruction this year.  Grrrr

Wanting: My daughter and I are healthy eating and exercising which is great!  I feel stronger and healthier, and I am less hungry most of the time.  I am never going to NOT want pizza, or dipped cones, or chocolate, or bread, but I.CAN.NOT.EAT.THEM.EVERY.DAY.  Soooo...we are sticking with our eating healthy and exercising three weeks at a time, and then we get a cheat day.  Day 22 is coming up on Wednesday, and I have Starbucks fall latte and a pizza dinner with a pumpkin beer for dinner planned already!  I am pumped.

Needing: Three more days off...or a math planning fairy.  Ya know...whichever.

Trips: I want to travel everywhere...seriously.  I've only been to a few places too, which makes it so sad.  If I had to list three of my top travel destination dream locations it would be these.  I have always wanted to go to the redwood forest ever since singing "This Land is Your Land" when I was a kid.  New York is a dream of most.  I'm no exception.  Hawaii too.  Tropical paradise??  Yes, please!  And a little edit with a fourth location (#sorrynotsorry for the cheat) Wizarding World of Harry Potter really has to happen soon.  I love HP!

You should link up with Farley too!  Or at the very least, head over to her blog and read about what other bloggers are Currently up to!
