May Currently, Slant Box, and Ramona Recommends

I'm linking up with Farley from Oh' Boy 4th Grade for May Currently.  

Listening: Listening to Avicii.  I love some techno/electric dance once in a while. 

Loving: I just got my Slant Box in the mail yesterday from

Mrs. D's Corner

I LOVE everything!  She went above and beyond.  Here are some of the items in my box.

April's theme was Spring into a Good Book.  Mrs. D picked one of my favorites, The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein.  She included a sweet note and adorable bookmarks for the kiddos in my class.  They are going to love reading and coloring their bookmarks next week!

She also included these adorable earrings that she made. Here's a link to her ETSY store, The Little Coral Box.  I just adore the Autism Awareness earrings.  I'm definitely going to have to buy them! 

And Mrs. D just made this awesome Teacher Lesson Planner for the 2014-2015 school year.  Click the photo to grab yours now for only $12!

And she didn't stop there.  She also got me some hand lotion, bright pens, and glitter clothespins!  Thank you so much Mrs. DeLussy.  I'm so glad I was able to get to know you better through Slant Box.  I really hope I can return the favor.  Maybe I'll be partnered with you at some point!  
 Hope you're enjoying Texas!

Thinking:  I need to finish reading The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate for Ramona Recommends' Book Club.  I'm giving away a copy of this book.  Keep scrolling down to enter.  It was on yesterday's blog post.  I started reading it and am loving it, but am really distracted by Facebook, Pinterest, Bloglovin', etc.  I'll be spending some time this weekend away from the screen.  If you're interested in joining, please visit Courtney's blog, Ramona Recommends.  


BTW she just got a new Melonheadz Mini Me...  So cute! 


Wanting:  I just started working out more than usual.  I have to get toned for bikini season!  So 4:45 am gym time, no bread, no sugar, and only one piece of dark chocolate a week.  I'm pretty sure I even told my husband yesterday that I'm going to do a fitness competition...haha {NEVER going to happen}!  I'm pretty much living on veggies and fish and I'd rather be eating cupcakes, ice cream, brownies, cookies, and candy bars. 

Needing: I haven't had a mani since before Spring break and my nails are in need of some attention.  I'm all about white tips, but am thinking of doing something a little different soon.  Any suggestions?  I also need to do my Jamberry nails from Christi Fultz.  

Surprise:  I'm going to share a surprise for my summer, but I promise to come back this weekend to do a RAK surprise!  My husband is planning our summer trip to the Dominican Republic as I blog right now!  I'm so excited for this...


 Love ya, and thanks so much for visiting.  
Hope you have a good night!
