It's Currently May...

Woohoo... we made it!  It's finally May.  Not much longer now, peeps!  I'm linking up with Farley for the May Currently...  
Listening:  it's Sunday morning and I'm chilling on the couch.  TV is off, sipping my coffee and my small humans are still sleeping!  I think they've finally reached the age where they realize the merits of sleeping in on the weekends.  We had a full day of shopping and playing yesterday and there were TIRED!

Loving:  I have been watching Married at First Sight on A&E and I'm in love.  This is the 2nd season (I didn't even realize there had been a 1st season).  But... if you're in the market for a new show... I highly recommend this one.  It's intriguing and entertaining and so much better than I thought it would be.

Thinking:  There are only 19 days of school left until summer vacation.  The last few months have actually gone by pretty fast, but that always seems to be the case after Christmas.  The last day with students is the 29th and then we have to go back a few days for post-planning and then HELLO summer vacay!

Wanting:  To go skydiving.  There is a place locally that does it.  I am thinking I may go next weekend when the boys are with their dad!  Wish me luck... can't wait to share pics!

Needing:  A tan.  Y'all...  this girl is pasty!  My friend and I leave for our annual beach trip the week after school is out and I am not ready.  I need to work on this and soon... or I'm going to look like a lobster after the first day!

Summer Yes, Hope, Dream:  I am so excited to go to Vegas again this summer.  Last year we had a blast (Read:  New Kids on the Block concert)... and I'm sure this year will be even more of a blast.  My hope is to organize the house and simplify stuff... throw out stuff that has no meaning, etc.  My dream is to be more spontaneous and open to what happens.  I am such a list maker and planner... and this can be a bad thing sometimes.  I am excited to throw caution to the wind (a little bit), go out on first dates, stay up too late, take road trips, and see what happens!


  1. I watched a marathon of Love at First Sight right before the 2nd one came out. It was surprisingly pretty good!

  2. I really want to watch that show, it sounds good!

    Have an awesome summer, I hope it all pans out for you :)

  6. Hi!
    I live in Florida and I am still in desperate need of some sunshine on my pasty skin ;).
    I went skydiving 2 years ago. It was a blast! Definitely worth it. It was my first time in a plane too.

    I am glad I found your blog. I am a fellow first grade teacher new to blogging! Still trying to figure everything out.

    Stop bye sometime!

  8. A fellow first grade teacher that came across your blog! :) Love it!

    And yes, I HAVE seen "Married at First Sight." I had a heart procedure done this year and had to take a few days off. While I was on the couch, there happened to be a marathon on... so I binged watched the whole first season in like two days! That show is crazy!
