I am so excited about this currently because THIS currently means that I have 20 days LEFT!!!!  This school year has flown by and I am happy that it is coming to an end.  I love, love, love my kiddos but I am drained.

Ok.  Here we go...

The details: 

Thinking: hubby and I are planning to start trying for a baby this summer.  For me, that means I have some seriously cleaning/organizing to do. I just won't be able to be "stress free" if I am not overly organized prior to!

Wanting:  Well, I'll just say I have some possible new opportunities coming my way and I am really excited for it to all get started.  You will know soon enough friends and I hope you will join me in my excitement when the time comes! :)

Needing:  I'm heading to Tampa, FL {four hour drive for me} this weekend with the hubbers to see some friends and do a little Cinco celebrating on the water!! Living in FL does have its perks! :)

Bucket List:  I do have a mile long summer 'to-do' list but my real goal is to relax.  Find peace.  Take time to just let me be ME.  

With that said, I'm going to go cook my hubby some food and do other things that are not relaxing. :p

Happy **almost** Friday!


  1. I am all about relaxation this summer too and not feeling guilty about it one bit.

  10. Kelly,
    Sooooo wish I lived in Florida! We visited last summer & I loved it. Good Luck in the baby area. I too thought I needed to be organized for a baby...little did I know that a baby and/or child threw my life into chaos! Perhaps you'll be much more organized than I was:)

  13. Ohhh relaxation is at the TOP of my list too! I have so many to-do projects for the summer, but I'm forcing myself to take several days throughout the summer to do NOTHING school related. I need to recharge my batteries and get out of a 10-year-old's world for a bit :)

    Joy in the Journey

  14. Thanks for all the support ladies!! We are both excited {and terrified} for our new journey! Of course, you will all be along for the ride! :)

  15. Summer will be here before you know it:) good luck with the baby thing!!
