Currently July :)

I cannot believe it is already July.  Two days in, to be exact!  Where is it going?  I need time to slow down just a little bit.  There is way too much relaxing yet to do!!


This is my first time joining in on the "Currently" action.  I checked out the bloggies starting at Oh Boy Fourth Grade to get the tutorials and wow... you guys are pros!  I've been doing the bloggie for a bit but I still feel like a newbie supreme-o-dork-a-roonie but that's ok.  I can embrace that part of life.  I like not knowing everything.  :)

The summers in Texas are full of long days and warm hot as fire stink sunshine!  It's not so much the heat as it is the combination of heat and humidity that does you in. I like to sit outside in the cool mornings but the afternoons are all about hangin' inside.  Right now I'm listening to the little Brutie Tootie snore his tooshie off as he basks in the warm sun from the comfort of the AC.  He's one happy cat.

Instagram has me hooked!  I joined ages ago but never really got crazed about it.  Just recently I cannot seem to look away.  Is that bad or just typical?

I've been working on a lot of school stuff during this first half of the summer.  My bestie and I are traveling soon and I do not want to be working on holiday!  I  know I will anyway, but still... I don't want to have to, ya know?  Teachers can't just walk away from the passion they feel for their careers.  It sticks with you.

I want a road trip.  I need a road trip.  I'm getting a road trip! :) I haven't started packing yet but the laundry pre-trip action has certainly begun with serious gusto!  There are stacks of clothes in random places.  Heaven help me sort it all.

Plans for Independence Day?  I'm not sure.... we shall see!!

Hope y'all have a wonderful holiday full of laughter & sparkly things.

Thanks for teaching me something new, Farley!!  :)


With happiness,
Jen :)

    I just posted my first "Currently" after you! I am also amazed by the cool things these experienced bloggers can do! (I just launched mine yesterday! Yikes!) I also live in Texas!! I live in Dallas. Where are you located?!
    Have fun on your road trip! I am hoping for one this summer too!

  2. Glad to know the Instagram addiction is not just mine! I joined forever ago too, but we just added an account under our blog and oh...my...goodness...addicted. It's making me stress a little seeing how productive other people are being! Hope you have a great 4th.

  4. ROAD TRIP!! Enjoy! ...there is nothing better than a summer road trip. I hope you can take some time to rest and relax. (I can relate to the constant need to work.)
