We Are Back From the Beach and July Currently

Hello, Friends!

We came back from the beach yesterday afternoon.  Why do I always feel like I need a vacation from my vacation.  Boy are we tired.  Brayden woke up around 8:30 and at 9:30 he told me he wanted to go night night.  Hoping we feel like ourselves by Friday!  At least, we get to relax and sleep in.  My poor husband had to get up and go back to work this morning.

Here are some of my favorite pictures from our beach trip!

We had a BLAST.  Brayden LOVED the water this time.  Can't wait to go  back in September.

Now on to Currently. It has been FOREVER since I linked up with Farley.  And...how is it July already?!?!

I'm listening to the news right now.  Exciting, right?  Well, Rachel Ray just went off and I need to catch up on the local news since I've been gone for a week.  

I am absolutely loving summer.  I love the summer heat (to an extent).  I love sleeping in (ish).  I love getting to do whatever I want whenever I want.  Summer is the best!

While we were at the beach, Brayden accidentally dropped my iPhone in the toilet.  First, EWWWWW! Second, it is currently sitting in some rice.  We had to wait until we got home to do that.  Luckily, we were leaving that next morning anyway.  Praying that all of the water will be absorbed and I won't have to buy a new phone.  Those things are too expensive! 

Summer needs to slow on down.  It's July already.  While I do love July, it's my birthday month, it means one more month closer to school starting.  I have so much anxiety about teaching 3rd grade.  I have so much I need to do to prepare for a new grade level.  So, summer please so on down.  I'm not mentally ready to go back yet!

I would love to have a nice tan! How does one go to the beach and come back just as white as she was? When you have a two year old, that's quite easy.  He gets bored so easily.  We were only out around 30 minutes at a time, if that.  He was ready to go back in. No time to lay out with a good book and work on my tan.  I get to chase a little one around.  But, that's okay.  I love being a mom! 

4th Plans:
My father-in-law bought a smoker and is planning on smoking some BBQ for the 4th.  Can you say YUMMY?!?!  The rest of us are in charge of bringing sides.  We still haven't decided what we are bringing.  Oh, I cannot wait.  I'm hoping my munchkin' can stay awake for the fireworks. We shall see...

Have a great day!

Lots of love,


  1. Looks like you had so much fun on your vacation! I switched from 2nd to 5th last year, so I definitely know the anxiety you are feeling. I was so happy with my move though! You are going to love your new grade. Good luck!

    1. I agree! I love that about her Currently linky. :-)

  3. Love your beach pictures...looks like fun! I am so ready for our beach trip! I hope the rice works on your phone. I had to buy a new one this morning. :/

    1. My phone is working, thankfully! It's got a blob of moisture under the screen, but we can't get that off to clean it. I hate you had to buy a new one! :-(

  4. Your beach trip looks like it was so much fun! Cute little guy you have there! :0)
