Currently- November!

It's November 1st, can you believe it???  That means it's time to link up with Farley from Oh' Boy 4th Grade.  

Here's what I'm currently up to...

The weekends are for football in our house.  We're Philadelphia Eagles fans, but they have a bye week.  I'm rooting for Denver tonight.  I will always love Peyton Manning. He's such a stand up guy and a phenomenal athlete. 

We bought a new bed and mattress about a week and a half ago, and it is AMAZING. I just want to sit in bed all day every day.  It was a major upgrade for us.  We had an old, old queen.  Our frame cracked last spring after several moves, and we finally replaced it.  Our new bed is a king with a half spring-half memory foam mattress.  I feel like I'm sleeping in a hotel every night.  I just love it!

I really, really should have gone into school today.  I still have Halloween stuff up from Friday.  I need to get my monthly things switched over, and I have so much filing to do.  I just hate leaving my family at home on my days off, ya know?  My husband, who's also a teacher, is always super supportive of me going in when I need to, but I always feel guilty.  So, the mess will just have to wait.

I confess that I am a shop-a-holic.  Aside from a sweater and jeans from my Stitch Fixes, I haven't gotten anything new for fall.  I haven't had the chance, and I'm on a tight budget.  This is hard for me!  I am really wanting a new jacket to replace my ratty North Face.  I am also looking for a pair of tall black boots, maybe something with a wedge.  I don't want them to look like motorcyle boots, but I don't want a spiky heeled pair.  I'm picky with my boots.  I really hate cheep looking boots. Any suggestions???

We still have remnants of costumes laying around.  Candy bags are on the counters, and our soggy scarecrow is sitting on the front porch.  My little ones loved Halloween this year!  Julia was a butterfly, and Bennett was a caterpillar.  They looked so darn cute!  They weren't scared at all, which is a big change from last year.

I made a grilled pork loin with mashed potatoes, green beans, and biscuits for dinner.  Those flaky biscuits were so dang good smeared with butter and jelly.  We have homemade strawberry jelly that my mom and I canned over the summer.  I love that stuff! I don't have the recipe for the jelly.  I usually make the 7-Up biscuits from Plain Chicken, but tonight I just made Grands.  They were just as delicious. 

Thanks again to Farley for the monthly link up.  I love reading through everyone's Currently posts.  Check them out for yourself!


  1. After being married for over 20 is time for a new bed. I am jealous. We have talked about it, but going with a king would be amazing. Enjoying the Packer game tonight...glad I was able to stop on by.

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Renee! ...and buy the bed! I'm so glad that we did. It has made a world of difference in how well I sleep.

  2. Hey Lauren,
    Sounds like you've been pretty busy this weekend. Your two little ones are more important than filing papers, hands down! Wanting boots is what I posted, too. I'm thinking about heading over to DSW - boots one thing I can't do online!

    1. Haha, Marion, I just suggested DSW to you on your post. Too funny! Great minds think alike!

  3. I enjoyed your post! I too love football but I am a Patriots fan although I live in Delaware! I am going to have to try that recipe for those biscuits, it sounds delicious!! Have a great week!


  4. Thank you, Cindy! Those biscuits are delicious! You won't regret trying them.
