Currently, July ?!

A new month means a Currently!

Link up to Farley's blog.

I know we say this every month, but seriously where has the time gone?
We are more than half way through 2013?!

Since it is just a day out from somebody's bday, (Anoinette!), I will let her go first!
Emily's thoughts are in red.
Antoinette's will be in blue.

I am a huge fan of The Food Network Star.
This is my 3rd or 4th season of watching it.
I love seeing all the different recipes the contestants come up with and all the obstacles that are thrown in their way.
Tonights episode is when they have to cook on live TV and Food Network throws curve balls at them to see how they handle it.
Some contestants were missing ingredients, lights went out while they were cooking, an alarm goes off to name a few!

I am a sun lover!
BUT...  I do not love the extreme hot temps that MO tends to get.
The last couple weeks have been in the high 90's.
But lately it has been low 80's and I am LOVING it!

This time of year is bittersweet.
Yesterday was my birthday!
Happy birthday to me!!!

Here is a pic of one of my bday gifts:
You all know I love baseball and the Royals!
So this gift is perfect for me. :)

I love my birthday... No matter how old I turn.
Coming from a super huge family- 1 of 11...
My birthday is the only day of the year that is all about me.
Which is why I am wanting it to be my birthday again.
I am having the day after bday blues! lol

Now that my bday is over, it's like summer starts dwindling away.
I want it to slow down because I am enjoying it WAY TOO MUCH!!!
I have been hanging out with family and friends.
Spending tons of time in the sun.
Relaxing it up.

So with it being summer and my bday...
I haven't been doing too awesome with the weight loss.
I did reach my bday goal, but I have been celebrating ever since.
So my grand total as of last Thursday is 63 pounds.
I want to kick it in high gear in July
and have to go on a shopping spree for new, SMALLER clothes before school.
Wish me luck!

As far as tips, tricks, or hints...
I need this advice also.
I find when I am posting consistently, I get more comments.

I LOVED "Gilmore Girls" back in the day.  It happened to be on today.
The pop culture references! 

I have yet to meet a teacher who doesn't love summer!!!
My tan is coming along.
I had my first small sunburn last week, must be careful.

You would think grad school would be over, but not yet!  Three more weeks...
I will make it!!
Is anyone else out there taking summer classes?  

This week is definitely to do list week.  I need to get some things together that are worth sharing on Made It Monday.

Shakespeare in the Park is awesome.  It's 'by donation." Here's my sticker to get in.
The production is "As You Like It."  It's a 60s rendition.  (The play's theme is love.)

This is the play that includes the quote
"All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts..."

The best part, is that you can bring your own food and drinks.  That means cheese and crackers, grapes, and beverages!  So "fancy."  
Any one else have a play in the park?

I love when bloggers show pictures.  
First, 'cause I can pin them!
Second, 'cause I can make more sense of what the person is describing.

What are you currently up to?
We would love to know!



  1. Hi ladies!

    I cannot believe how fast summer is slipping by. I know I'm going to end up kicking and screaming when it's time to go back!!

    I have to agree with the pictures tip. They give our readers a great way to link back to our blogs via Pinterest! :)

  2. wishing I had a place to watch plays in the park with a picnic... especially if the park doesn't have mosquitos.

  3. I love Food Network Star. :) I didn't read the rest of your post because I have it DVRed and I was afraid you might have shared something that happened last night. I'll come back and read after I watch it. :)
