Currently, I'm...

Just another day in August!  I'm beginning to prep for school... finally.

But for now, I'll just give you a little peek at what I'm up to at the moment with Oh Boy, Fourth Grade.

Listening:  It's been so spring-like this past week.  I love leaving my door open & listening to all of the robins chirping outside.  Sooo relaxing.

Loving:  If you haven't tried Chocolate Shop wine yet, what are you waiting for??  This stuff is fabulous.  It's like drinking a chocolate covered cherry.  And I don't even like chocolate covered cherries.  Or cherries for that matter.  But YUM!

Thinking:  So, there's a story behind my "it's 5 o'clock somewhere" date with a glass of chocolate shop wine.  It's that my lovely iPhone just happened to decide it was finally going to update to iOS7 whether I liked it or not. {Yes.  I was STILL ignoring the update and living blissfully in iOS6 land.  Don't judge me.}  The kicker is that it updated in the middle of a convo with my deployed husband.  Then kept telling me to click "restore factory settings."  Sweet goodness! I was beside myself.

Who wants to restory factory settings ever??? What about all of my stuff?!??! Hello! I was in the middle of an important conversation here, phone!!!

I ran drove to Verizon pronto.  They said I was out of luck.  I had to click the factory settings button and hope my things were backed up in the cloud. When I said, "What CLOUD????"  I think the worker about died.

So, I came home, hit the button, said a pray, & opened a bottle of wine for good measure. {Ok, and the leftover Tagalongs, too.  They go so well together.}  Great news - all is well! Except for this whole iOS7 thing, but eh, could have been worse.

Wanting:  Before the phone incident, I had  been working on setting up my new homework folders.  They are looking swell, but only half are completed.  More to come on this!

Needing:  I need a mani so badly.  I've literally picked my nails down to nothing in the past few weeks.  It's a terrible habit, but I tend to let them grow beautifully when I have a fresh gel mani.  And after my phone debacle, let's throw in a nice massage, too.

I can't believe it's already August.  School is coming soo fast!

Any advice on a good polish color for my nails??? :)


  1. mmmmm wine! I hear ya on that! I think I'll have a glass myself! Happy blogging!

  2. Oh I need a mani/pedi too! Thanks for the reminder.

  3. That glass of wine sounds yummy and a massage as well. Enjoy the rest of your summer.

    1. Oh that makes me feel so much better than I'm not the only one! :)

  5. My phone will occasionally update itself and wipe out all my contacts. I have it backed up, but I also resorted to taking a screen shot of the contacts I really need so I have the numbers on the phone somewhere. I don't always know someone is missing until I need to call! Hope you get your folders set up soon!
