Currently... November!

How the heck did it get to be November already?! Says the girl who has been counting down to our end of year & summer holidays (33 work days). So a new month = another chance to link up with Farley!

Listening & Loving & Wanting- We have just arrived home from the beach! We went to Lorne on the Great Ocean Road for the weekend. The weather yesterday was amazing, hot & sunny. Plus we had Pizza from Pizza, Pizza for tea... I swear I would drive to Lorne once a week just to eat from there, it's that good!

Feelin' a bit tired after the drive back {its over 3 hours but was totally worth it}. 
Sidenote- I think if you look back at all of my currently's the washing machine would be a big regular in the 'listening'.... We must always go away the last weekend of the month.

Thinking- Our school year ends in 7 weeks so it would normally be a crazy time of year with new grades, planning, classroom changes, Christmas shopping, end of year break ups & Christmas parties, report writing, class transition days, etc, etc but to make it even more EXCITING {tiring} I have a new job for next year! This will be my first ever change of schools which will hopefully be a great way to start my 8th year of teaching.

Yummy pin- I so want to try this one- Cake Batter Milkshake from Cooking Classy. I love Cake Batter ice cream from Cold Rock and this sounds just as good.

Happy November,

  1. I can't believe your school year is almost over! We essentially just started ours...well, 54 school days ago anyway. But then again, our summer is in June/July.

    And that cake batter milkshake looks delicious!

    Hope you have a great end of the school year!

  2. Thanks for stopping in Bec! I love your beach pictures *sigh* and I am a little jealous. It's so hard for me to wrap my head around the fact that your school year ends in seven weeks. Good luck with the new job!

    Keep Calm and Apple On

  3. Glad to find you! The beach weekend looks lovely! My daughter is dreaming of Oz right now as she has met a young man from Sydney and wants to be able to visit him. With pics like that I just might come with her!


    1. I would love to go to the States one day too- the travel list is pretty long! Australia is pretty fantastic Olwyn and Sydney is gorgeous- they have a lot more sun than Melbourne. Thanks for visiting!

  4. Yep - I'm wanting sleep too! Seems to be the current trend these days :) Doesn't help that I don't drink coffee as it gives me a headache. Must find another way to stay awake through report writing this term!

  5. Should I make you jealous by telling you that I have only 24 work days left til Summer holidays? :)

    Love, Laughter and Learning in Prep!

    1. Lauren lucky I think you are great :) Yes very jealous- I can't believe you guys finish so early!
