Currently and Made It Monday... Late!

Hello my friends!  I hope everyone had a happy and safe July 4th!  I'm linking up with two fab linkies today!  I'm a little late for both, but hey!  It's summer!  Who really knows what day it is, anyway?!  ;)

First up is my July Currently, courtesy of Farley:
The TV is always on at my house, so this is big for me!  I am going to turn it on when I'm done posting to watch my DVR'd soap operas!

I just love summer!  No alarms, sleeping late, what day is it?

I should probably get something done today, but I don't think I'm going to!! Haha!

There is always one food item in my Currently... Doesn't a chocolate/vanilla twist ice cream cone with rainbow sprinkles sound AMAZING right now?!  It's 100 degrees here in good ole Jersey!  Maybe that's what I'll do today: go to Dairy Queen ;)

I'm road trippin' down to SC in like a minute and I haven't done any shopping yet!  I need to hit up a mall in the next few days!!

I have a ton of books that I love to read to my kiddos, but the one that always pops into my head is Giraffes Can't Dance.  I just love giraffes, and I just love the message in this book.  And while I was perusing the Kohl's Cares website, I came across this:
It was on SALE for $2.50 each piece!!  So I ordered it right up for a whopping $5 plus tax and shipping... I think it came to $7.  Deal!

As for teacher reads, I don't have any to share!  I read teaching blogs! :)

For my second link up, here is my Made It Monday, courtesy of Tara:
Notice anything?  Perhaps a cute little white and orange paw?  That's my buddy Jack ;)
These letters were really easy to make:
*Trace the wood letters onto the paper of your choice.
*Carefully cut the paper letters out.
*Use a foam brush to Mod Podge the wood letter; place your paper letter on top.
*Once your paper letter is Mod Podged in place, use the foam brush to but a layer of Mod Podge over the top of the paper for a shiny finish!
*{Optional} Add colorful buttons with hot glue.

And there you have it!  Two linkies, one post :)  I'm off to watch those soap operas now!

I agree with you, I've been reading tons of teacher blogs as well...I love your READ craft...are the letters from Michael's? and do they stand up? So cute for your classroom library.

I love GIRAFFES CAN'T DANCE! Too bad I didn't know about the Kohl's deal. Our art teacher reads this to our kinders each year. I love looking at the art project that they do with it. If I were to make the READ letters I would have to do a frog theme. :)

I have two books, but this week I haven't had time to read much. I agree, reading other blogs does count as professional reading!
I love the read sign, and the PAW made me laugh out loud.
