July Currently

I'm linking up with Farley for currently again!  This hasn't been the most productive few weeks of my life, and I'm trying to get back on track.  Hopefully this will help me kick off a more productive July!

The 4th of July is my favorite holiday of the year!  I love all the fireworks and town parties... and now with a little one, I'm loving it even more because there are so many things for us to bring him to do too!  Anyway...

Listening: as many people probably are right now - we're watching the World Cup.  I'm so NOT a soccer fan, but my husband is (he's a fan of ALL sports... he'd probably watch paint dry if someone said it was a competition).  Belgium just scored... but we're still believing we can win!

Loving: my new sail bag!  Have y'all heard of these bags?  My best friend gave one to me as a bridesmaids gift last month and I'm crazy about it.  I bought another one last weekend... They're made out of old sails, so they're REALLY durable... plus I always love supporting small businesses.  

Thinking: a couple times a summer, it's just too hot to cook - or even think about cooking.  Today is one of those days.  So... I'll probably have ice cream for dinner.  :) 

Wanting: we're moving in less than 2 weeks... and I'm just not getting the packing done the way I'd like to.  So I wish my house would just pack itself.

Needing: I have a couple TpT things I've been working on that I've neglected the past few weeks!  I just need a couple hours to myself (actually by myself, not just at the table typing while also talking to my family) to get them done.  Somehow I have to work that out soon.

4th Plans: we always go to Maine to our lake house for the 4th.  My town has a huge 3rd of July celebration which we always stick around for - awesome fireworks and a big festival at the park.  Right after that though we head north to the lake.  We have a lobster bake and boat and jet ski rides... hopefully the weather will cooperate!

If you haven't linked up with Farley yet, hop over and join her party.  I try to get mine done early, but today was busy so I'm just joining - and am going to be at least the 240th person to participate.  So it's not too late!!!

  1. Hi! That lobster bake sounds really really good! Wish my family did stuff like that! I feel ya on the packing! That is always one of my least favorite things to do. But, I have never packed an entire house. Always just clothes and what not for a week long vacation or shorter lol! So I guess I should've said I KINDA feel ya on it! lol Good luck though! I'm sure you will have everything packed in time!

  2. I have lost interest in the World Cup - Australia just isnt the best at soccer lol. And as for the icecream for dinner - just do it!!!

  3. Your 4th of July plans sound amazing! Now I'm craving lobster. Good luck with your packing and move. I can't imagine doing it with a baby...it was hard enough for me with 2 dogs.
