I'm linking up with Farley for Currently!

Listening: Right now, my kids are playing instead of eating.  Lovely, right? Some how toys always end up at the dinner table and it drives me bananas!  They both ate half a meatball and then said they were full.  I wish I could be full on half a meatball!

Loving: Hawaiian Keurig Cups!  They make the house smell so nice and they have a slight nutty flavor to them!  We just got two more big boxes of Hawaiian k-cups and two big boxes of Tree Hugger k-cups.  I love a bold coffee for the morning.

Thinking:  We are wrapping up our Mexico Study with a mini fiesta for Cinco de Mayo tomorrow and I've convinced myself that I'll be able to make guacamole with the class.  It's easy enough, right?
Brochures all colored and ready for the bulletin board!  Check out my Cinco de Mayo brochure project on TpT.

Wanting: More patience.  Or more sleep.  Or fewer responsibilities.  All three would be AWESOME!  I'm updating all FIVE of my bulletin boards and starting all of the end of year assessment and record keeping.  I could definitely use a clone right about now!

Needing: To reorganize my closet.  It seems like spring is finally here, although the mornings are still quite chilly.  Still, I'd rather wear seven layers than put a winter coat on!  I need to go through and change my closet over to warmer clothes.  And I need to purge with a heavy hand.  I may or may not still have some maternity clothes lurking in my dresser.

Summer Bucket List:
1.) Beach - Although the beaches near me were really hurt by Sandy, the news keeps saying they will be open for Memorial Day!  I can't wait!
2.) Pool - My oldest is going to do swimming lessons this year!  And I can't wait to get back to swimming laps in an outdoor pool!
3.) Marathon Training - I'm officially registered for the NYC Marathon and I will start training in mid-July.  This will be my second marathon and I'm kind of looking forward to the training and definitely looking forward to racing!

What are you up to this month!  Be sure to link up with Farley!


  1. Guacomole sounds super good right now...yum! I've never tried the Hawaian k-cups, but I'll have to give them a go. I do love me some bold coffee :)

  2. I also need to reorganize my closet! My goal is to get all of my winter stuff put away this we better not have any more cold weather! Good luck with the marathon training!

  3. I know they were working full-steam to get the beaches ready down by me. I stopped by Seaside one weekend recently and it didn't seem like the boardwalk was done, but I know Pt. Pleasant is open for business already! I'm an LBI girl, so no boardwalks to worry about. I just hope there's still enough sand!

  4. A marathon? That's AWESOME. I just don't think I have what it takes. Hah!

  5. I *LOVE* my Keurig too! I will definitely need to try the Hawaiian blend - that sounds delicious!

    I am impressed with your goal to run a marathon - I am lucky if I find time to run around the block :)

    I found you through the linky - and am so glad that I did! We fifth grade teachers need to stick together! :)

    1. I'm just about to head over to your blog :-)

      The Hawaiian is made by Tully's :) SO good!

  6. I will definitely be hitting the beach one way or another this summer...the closest beach to us is about 3 1/2 hours but we have family near the beach. I will be making guacamole today for our Cinco de Mayo BBQ!
