Camping & Currently

I'm a girly girl... not in the always made-up way, but surely I am not a tom-boy.

Normally, I HATE bugs and grass and mud and woods, but when I'm camping it totally doesn't bother me... as much.

I'm not an outdoorsy girl, by any means, but there is something about camping and going out on the lake that I just love....

Maybe it's the disconnect from the world (unless you've got a TV with cable or a smartphone to tempt you)...
Maybe it's that I can read for hours on end while enjoying the cool breeze...
Maybe it's the s'mores... (very likely... though sticky marshmallow fingers are one of my biggest pet peeves...)
Maybe it's spending time with family & friends...
Or maybe it's relaxing out in the sun (or shade) and enjoying the beauty of God's creation.

Either way, I love it.

 I got to spend part of last weekend camping with my husband and in-laws, and it was absolutely wonderful. For the morning, we had a nice breakfast & relaxed outside. Then we spent the day out on the lake. I slathered on the sun screen and STILL got a tan. Ooh ooooohh! And, more importantly, I was finally able to really get into the book I'm reading, The Debutante. I'm at least halfway done now and very exited to get home and read s'more -- ba-dum-dum-ch!!  (Sorry, that was my cheesy joke for the day.)

And now it's time to link up with Farley @ Oh Boy 4th Grade for June Currently! Can you believe it's JUNE already?!?! I sure can't!

I love John Mayer. :)

Justin's and my 2-year anniversary is the 12th. I'm so thankful for him. :)

We have just under two weeks to finish testing, compiling lesson plans, writing up reports and otherwise documenting all of the teaching we've done this year. It's a lot to do, but my goal is to me 100% done with testing & writing reports by next Monday so on the last 3 days of school we can organize our plan binders, and clean, organize and pack up the room.

I almost always want venti non-fat vanilla latte. In college, I was Big Sister Venti Non-Fat Vanilla Latte for my last year in Sigma Phi. Good memories... :)

I'm still needing a full-time job for next year... I heard back from the recruiter at the school where I had the interview, and I didn't get the job. I'm really bummed, but I'm staying positive... it's only June 5th and maybe I'm meant to be somewhere else. I'm giving it up to God, because worrying and wondering isn't helping me much. :(

As for my Wish, Went, Want...

My wish is basically to travel the world... more specifically, I'd love to travel around Europe for a summer and spend some time in every country... or at least Italy, France, England, Ireland and Poland. That's my dream one day... I better start saving, huh?

Over spring break this year, I went on a cruise with my hubby, his sister and their parents. We had a wonderful time! It was so much fun. We spent two of the days at sea, sailing across the Caribbean and doing some of my favorite things: swimming, taking pictures, relaxing, reading, eating, and laying out while applying sunscreen every 45-80 minutes... lol.
The three days in port were spent in Key West, Grand Cayman, and Ocho Rios. We parasailed, walked around and shopped in Key West (yes, I know that's still in the US, but it's sooo much fun down there!). In Grand Cayman, we went snorkeling, explored the beach, ate some delicious food, snorkeled again, and shopped some more. Then we climbed the Dunn's River Falls, danced, and shopped yet again in Ocho Rios, Jamaica.
Best vacation ever!

This summer, I want to visit Chicago with Justin. Neither of us have ever been, and we're so close! I've heard that it's totally worth the trip to take a long weekend to enjoy the city. I'm not sure if I'd prefer going just the two of us, or if we'd like going with friends.... Any thoughts?
