July Currently

I'm linking up with Farly for the July Currently... a bit early. But seriously, how is it almost July?! Please summer...slow down!
Oh' boy fourth grade
So here we go:

Listening: I just love the Colbert Report. I like The Daily Show too...both so funny! Today is a Colbert marathon for me because I am way behind...not because I am not up at 11:30pm when it airs, because I am.... but I am on this computer doing who knows what?

Loving: The beach is amazing and I just love being close to it. For me, beach time equals more reading, a time to force me away from this computer I can be a slave to and all that vitamin D I get to soak up! Now to just get rid of this June gloom! {Oh yeah, it's July...problem solved....we hope!}

Thinking: I think I may just take myself on a mini field trip to Hobby Lobby....nothing in particular in mind... but I like to just go there and check it all out.... sometimes I leave with some inspiration.  Plus, I want to buy some chevron fabric for a few bulletin boards... and I have seen a few people share their Hobby Lobby finds on Instagram!

Wanting: OK so I am queen of procrastination and here I go again. As I said above, on my June Currently I wrote the same thing- I want some vacation plans... Ahhhh... it is so 100% typical me to be in the same boat 30 days later. Summer is flying by and I just haven't made a plan! I'm on Kayak.com daily...but the prices just aren't cooperating! So we will see what actually happens. Fingers crossed for a great deal.

Needing: I have only been out of school for a week now, and knowing about my procrastination issue, you are probably not surprised to hear that I have not started any of the summer projects I said I would do. First and foremost,  I want to organize files and books. For me, next year is the big switch to Common Core and so I want to re-categorize things since I anticipate next year being a big year of change.

Tips, Tricks or Hints: I don't want to sound like a broken record.... but just in case you haven't done anything about it yet... Google Friend Connect is leaving us and Bloglovin' is the way forward. I know people are worried about the change...me included... but I was so happy to see I could easily import all the same peeps in about one quick minute. So if you haven't done it yet - you can check out my post about it {HERE} and make that shift.

And if you are feeling the love.... why not follow me too :)

Happy {almost} July!


  1. I had to bop by after seeing one of your comments on another blog. I haven't met another Christy who spells her name like me! It's always misspelled with a K, no h, or ie, or i at the end.

    Sorry for the random comment! I hope your enjoying your summer, and don't be too hard on yourself for not jumping right into projects. You need a little bit of a break too!

  2. love your blog...it is soooo cute... thanks for linking up and go head off to hob lob and have fun!!!

  3. I've never been to Hobby Lobby-- there aren't any in Delaware! Not fair! But, I just found out that there's one near my boyfriend's house, and I'm making him go with me next week. I can't wait to see what all the fuss is about & probably spend waaayy too much money!

  4. I feel like your Currently could also apply to me in some ways.. except in Florida! I am desperately needing a vacation! As a kid, I was a travel bug. As of late, I have not gone anywhere. It is getting to me. As for Hobby Lobby. Ugh. They see my entire pay check! Ha!

    I'm excited to be your new follower!

  5. I am right there with you on planning a vacation. Finding the time (my husband's schedule is crazy) and the right price is a challenge.
