Currently May

Happy May!  
Today I'm linking up with Farley, from Oh Boy Fourth Grade.  I love that Farley makes a new one every month so we can better get to know each other and meet some new Blogging Buddies.  Check out her adorable blog and join us each month if you haven't yet.

I've been MIA for awhile, and I'm really excited to be back for May Currently.  I have a busy day planned, so I'm going to head out and get some things done and then come back to share some more details this afternoon. I'm heading out to Home Depot, Marshals, Home Goods. and Hobby Lobby to buy some things for a home I've been remodeling.   I'm definitely going to need some help, so I'll share some pics and ask for your advice.  Hope you have a fab day! I've been missing you all a ton! XO


 I love starting my day off with inspiring words and positive encouragement.  A friend of mine recently introduced me to A New Beginning, and I absolutely love it.  This morning I finished listening to a message I had started a few days ago called The Best is Yet to Come.

Statement Necklaces! I'm completely obsessed...
I purchased a few more for my collection during The Loft sale last week. 
I'm living with my parents while I remodel my new home.
This is how I'm keeping my necklaces organized temporarily.  I just hope they don't get tangled!
Thinking :
I've been MIA too long and I'm so eager to get back into blogging.  I love reading all of your posts, borrowing your adorable crafts, and spending far too much money on TPT. So excited to be back!  

Summer is coming soon and I haven't had a Mani/Pedi in over two months!  I have an at home gel kit that I just may have to pull out tonight for a temporary fix.  Any suggestions for color?  I was thinking a nude or light pink?

Love this Mani pic from Pinterest. 

I've been visiting furniture stores, hardware stores, and looking for home decor while I've been away from my computer the past few months.  I can't wait to share with you what the home looks like when it's complete.  We've been painting, replacing floors, fixtures, and cleaning for months.  It's now time for furniture and home decor!  That's the part I've been waiting for!  Still have some more shopping to do, but I'll be posting pics here in the next few weeks.  I'm excited to share this journey with ya'll! 

I'm loving the Glam look on all of these...

Time for working out, laying by the pool with friends, reading, and relaxing.  During the school year, I don't know what these words mean. 

A friend of mine asked me to come with her to the stables yesterday after school.  I grew up next to stables and rode on occasion. Riding lessons has been on my bucket list since I could walk, so I'm thinking that needs to happen. Okay, maybe I'm just all about the fashion and fairy tale connection...

 And The Kentucky Derby totally reinforced that idea today.  Bonus: I won a small bet today on American Pharaoh.  And I'm all about the outfits.  I LOVE all of the hats/outfits and would wear something like this every day to school if I didn't look totally ridiculous!  Here are some my favorites from Pinterest.
