Currently February

Ummm....It's FEBRUARY!!!! Where did January go?! I'm linking up with Farley over at Oh Boy 4th grade for my Currently!!

Listening: Seriously....have you heard this song?! I am OBSESSED..... actually obsessed might not be a strong enough word. I LOVE the funky beat, and I love that more and more musicians are introducing some woodwind and brass instruments into their music -- enough techno-keyboard junk! (That's the band geek showing). 
Loving: My Keurig. My hubby gave me money for Christmas to get a Keurig. He said there were too many for him to pick out - so I should pick out the one I wanted. I got the Platinum series-- 5 cup sizes, water filter...and ooohhhh sweet baby Jesus the coffee that I can make on demand has been AMAZING. 
Thinking: Thirty One Valentine's Day special!!! I LOVE that I am part of an amazing company like Thirty One! In February, the new Zip Organizing Utility Totes are only $10 when you spend $35! Plus only $5 personalization cost! AAAHHHH....the organization possibilities :) So, anyone who orders from my website between now and Valentine's could win a $25 gift card to Thirty One! 
Wanting: I made a BIG mistake. On December 16 (yes - I remember the day because my birthday is the 17th) I made the mistake of telling my BFF Candice that I had been so lucky and hadn't gotten bronchitis or some other lung sickness this year! (I have scar tissue on one lung and always get something during the winter!) Shortly after midnight, I woke up with a violent sickness! On my birthday no less!!! It was AWFUL! I was sick through Christmas (norovirus, strep throat, and pink eye all at once!!). Then, my hubby got sick New Years, then I got sick with bronchitis in January, and currently I have an ear infection! My poor puppy also had an ear infection!! 
Needing: Prayers! Whatever your faith, please take a moment to think of a dear coworker of mine...we'll call her "S". Her husband had a brain tumor removed, and it was cancerous. The prognosis has not been good -- 6 months to 18 months to live. I can't even imagine. I am also asking for prayers for my hubby -- he has lost his job :( It's going to be a rough month trying to make ends meet without his paycheck, but hopefully things will work out. 
2 Truths and a Fib: 
Truth: My dog is named after a Drake Song....her name is Yolo, as in You Only Live Once. The story behind that is, when our friend Anita at the shelter asked us to take her in (we had 2 pit bulls already, and live in a TINY house) - my husband and I said, only live once- help as many as you can! Now-- almost 2 years later, she's a huge part of our family! 
Truth: I started blogging to teach myself -- I had read LOTS of blogs, but I hadn't designed any. Then, as part of my summer technology work, I was asked to teach a class on website design and blogging. Website design, no problem....blogging.....let me learn that! :) 
Fib: I'm allergic to cats -- FALSE-- although - we could NEVER own a cat because my dog Angel does NOT like cats. I'm not exaggerating. At the shelter, she escaped her run, and went straight into the cat room, picked up a cat and took off. She was cornered by staff before she could do anything, and dropped the cat. She's broken 2 leashes/collars chasing cats on our walks. (We now use the double fail method for her walks!) 

I've got some great fraction lessons coming up --so look for those to be up with explanations and pictures!! 


  1. Prayers for your family and your friend. My husband lost his job a few years ago, and it was a trying time BUT it brought us much closer together!

  2. Praying for your family and friend too! Every experience in life can either make our relationships stronger or tear them apart. When we wrap circumstance with prayer it's hard to go wrong! I'm your newest follower.

  3. Prayers for your friends...I hate hearing things like that, but she is blessed to have you as a friend.

    I started blogging too because I just knew I could do it!
