July Currently Post and A NEW BLOG DESIGN!!!

I know I have been MIA for the last couple weeks, but today I am linking up for the first time with Farley over at Oh Boy Fourth Grade for the Currently linky.  A fun way to get to know more about me :).

LISTENING- My oldest child is 7 and can complain like a pro!!  She does not like anything she has in her closet, her dresser, or anything she has stuffed under her bed!!  Believe me,  her grandma buys her more clothes than any other child I know!

LOVING- I am overjoyed that I FINALLY have a colorful blog design.  The credit all goes to Christi Fultz from Designs by Christi.  Please let me know what you think!

THINKING- We have been working every night for the last two weeks on our rental house so it can be ready for our new tenant July 1st.  My poor kids have been great sports being stuck there with us each night so I thought we would take them to the park today.  We have a wonderful park/zoo about 15-20 minutes away and a great way to spend a Sunday!

WANTING- I seriously need a day to just pamper myself!!!  I know it sounds selfish, but I have not had a day to myself in over seven years!!  I am not even kidding :).  Between three kids ages 7, 4, and 2, coaching, teaching, and trying to keep my house clean there is little time in the day to take for myself.  Don't I sound like a complete blast! :).

NEEDING- We are going on our first family vacation tomorrow.....  We are going to Door County, Wisconsin for the first time.  I have heard from others it is beautiful there and the kids are excited to be watching the fireworks there on Thursday.  Since the rental has been taking so much of our time I have not had time to pack yet. 

TIP- My word of advice is to always believe in yourself!  I struggle with this myself since there are so many other strong opinions out there.  Once we start second guessing our own beliefs and decisions is when we steer away from who we really are. 

Now it is time for my freebie.  I posted my Calendar All Year packet to TpT a month or so ago so this week's freebie is a sample of that packet.  I made two different calendar piece designs for each month.  Get your sample of this packet HERE!!!!

Well of to the park for me and the kids!


  1. Hi Tina. I found your blog through Farley's Currently link up. I love the new design! It is so cute and colourful! And no, you don't sound selfish...we teachers/moms always seem to have time to take care of everyone else but ourselves. I hope that you find time for yourself this summer - you deserve it!

  2. Love the design. Christi does such good work. Have a great time in Door County. I've heard it is beautiful.

  3. Your blog looks adorable. I had Christi fix mine for my Christmas present last year. She's such an amazing designer.
