CURRENTLY July 2015

I was watching the US Women's World Cup game
and I was inspired to do this CURRENTLY design
I hope you love it.
I played soccer from 2nd grade through college
up until I blew my knee out when I was like 30.
I LOVE SOCCER
like {PUFFY} heart love it!!!
GO USA

This month's CURRENTLY sponsor is…


Photobucket


oh and I have to say
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to all of you that donated last month
together we raised over $600
OVER $600
that is mind blowing!!!
POW… that was my mind blown
any who
I will be delivering the check to the WAG organization at their Adoption Day Event on July 25th 
and I can't wait.  There is also going to be City Council Members along with WAG representatives.  I am so excited and my heart is so FULL that my little ole blog was able to raise so much for a great cause!!!! THANKS SO MUCH!!! If it wasn't for my fantabulous readers, none of this would be possible.  Miss Pat, at WAG, said that this money is greatly needed because several of the dogs that they still have in the rescue (from the flood) are heart worm positive, and have other ailments and this money will be used to help with their treatments and other medical care.  THANKS again for being so AWESOME!!!



and now for what you have been waiting on…
 the game is over and I am so excited…
GO USA!!!

Every year Hubs takes off for the 4th and we head out to THE SIPP…
AKA Mississippi
so if any of you Mississippi Gulf Coast peeps want to meet up
holla at me
we go there to visit my Gma and other family
BUT let's keep it real… I go to see my GMA

and let's not talk about the lack of packing I have done or not done…
I am really good at stacking everything on the bed and organizing it that way
and then SWISH… pack it in the suitcase last minute…
so I have bed stacks
I just need to pack it

I am excited about VEGAS…
REALLY I AM…
BUT
I am nervous about
flying
packing
crowds
flying
being over scheduled
flying
mingling
flying
flying and flying

I am usually a pretty confident person…
but because I can hide behind this computer screen…
and I know how to take a pic from my good side and angle…
plus I have a WONDERFUL app for editing my selfies…
ask me in vegas and I will share it with you!!!
BUT… I will admit it...
I am nervous about meeting everyone…
and being out in the open… is that weird… am I the only one???
I can hide behind this blog
and edited pics and edited words
but not in VEGAS…
I don't have anything to hide
I am just worried…
I feel like I am going to a new high school and I want to be the cool kid…
tons of questions...
what do you wear
how many outfits do I bring
do I have time to play slots
do I bring my laptop
will all my chins show up in the pics
am I gonna sweat like a pig… I sweat so easily
have you seen the predicted temps
will my makeup melt off my face
will people like me
will people like my #currentlyvegas
will people do the above mentioned hashtag
will my hair cooperate
if I sweat I sweat pink… because of my hair… smirk face
will I be ok on the plane…
will my roommate hate me before we land
how big can my carry on be
can I pack hairspray
is their a wt limit for luggage
I hate flying
HATE it
hope I don't forget anything…
AHHHHHHHHHH remind me why I am going again…
really I am excited I am
anywho… I need to get over this
I will be fine… I just have to get there
and I need to relax and enjoy the moment…
AND first I have THE SIPP to enjoy
and I am sure HUBS will love hearing about all my nervous nelly problems on our 8 hour drive
no wait he is driving… 10 hour drive!!! ha ha ha

ALL STAR… everyone knows if they want an honest opinion…
come to me
If you are trying an outfit on… I will not lie and tell you that outfit looks great
I will not be blunt and mean… I will do it nicely...
I would hope you do the same…
if your boyfriend is a jerk and you ask for advice I will tell you like it is…
I do have a filter but if you ask for advice be prepared… I do deliver an honest opinion.

my friends know this and sometimes they have to tell me to just listen… no advice needed
I am a good listener too!!!

OK your turn...


all star… what are you great at

here are the RULES… 
please follow the rules
I have noticed some are not doing the rule of 3…
please read these and follow them
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE
and no saving your spot on the linky list by linking to a blank page
while you make your currently…
please and thank you… 






and don't forget you can do CURRENTLY in your classroom!!!

  2. Hey Farley! You are not alone in being nervous! I think overwhelmed might also be a good word! Meanwhile- BAM! I am #8 this month! Only took three years to break into the top ten. I just wish I had thought about reserving a spot with a blank blog post a long time ago! (People really do that?) I hope to meet you soon!

  3. Thanks for hosting. It's my first time participating, but it is a lot of fun! When it comes to that nervousness stuff...I steered clear of Vegas because I wasn't confident enough to go this year (or maybe ever). That's saying a lot because I'm usually over confident about everything, especially people (extrovert over here!). I keep thinking that I want to go, but all of those questions/comments that you listed up there are exactly what's going through my head. I hope you soak it all up and don't forget to enjoy yourself!

  8. We are like Vegas Worry Twins! I hate flying so much that I strongly considered driving there. From Ohio. (I love road trips, though!) And I'm so nervous about meeting so many people. I'm terrible with names, too. Aaaahhhh! But it will be so good, right?

  9. You keep forgetting you are already the cool kid and we love you even more because you don't let that get to your currently pink head. Is it more pink/purple than it was? I am curious now... I am solving my hair problem by cutting it all off. I think Suzanne should pack hairspray for you because she uses less hair product. I am packing spa products for you to help you relax. See- feeling better?

    1. Good idea except I don't even own hairspray...

  15. Last night's soccer game was awesome! The best I've seen the girls play during this whole competition. Vegas is going to be so much fun, even though I think we are all nervous!

  16. Go USA! Wasn't their win over Germany last night just the BEST? I've never been to Vegas, have only attended two other small blogger meet-ups in my almost two-years time, and really HATE to fly.....and I am traveling alone! I just keep taking deep breathes and telling myself that all will be well! As always, thanks for your straight-up honesty and this fun monthly linky party!

  20. I have not been able to get to Vegas yet because of being in grad school classes every summer. I finally finish at the end of this summer and am hoping to get there next year, but I feel the exact same as you! I really want to go, but if I decide to go I know I will be a nervous wreck! I bet though that you will have an amazing time.

  21. I am so nervous about Vegas too. I had to have a friend give me a pep talk. The meetup alone is making me freak out already! I know once that is over everything else will be great... but 900 people in one room..... #whatintheworld. Oh, and you better believe I will use your currently hashtag. Can't wait to see you there.

    Have fun on the Sipp Coast. It's my most favorite place ever! ( I may be bit biased I did live there for half of my life.)
    Good luck at Vegas! You are going to do great! :)

  27. I'm right there with you & all of your feelings about Vegas! Will people like me? Will I come across as a dork? Will I be sitting in a corner by myself? I'm sure we are going to have a blast! If all else fails, come join me in the corner & we'll have our own party! lol :-) I know we'll be just fine!! People love you. Can't wait to meet you!

  28. I'm super nervous about Vegas too. I went last year and felt awkward because I didn't know anyone and I really wanted to make connections, but for some reason I got shy. Anyway, if I see you and your face is melting because it is 115 degrees, I won't judge, because my hair will be frizzy and I'll be melting too! Have a great time!
    BTW I L-O-V-E soccer and still (attempt to) play on a coed rec team. We really suck but we drink beer afterwards and it's all good. Thanks for showing the USWNT some love!!!

  29. Thanks for your Currently! Sometimes it is the only time I blog in the month- which is SOOOO terrible!
    You'll have a blast in Vegas! I used to work it with SDE for five years in a row- it got to be too much to travel though. Seeing all my presenter friends gearing up makes me miss it. Are you going to the TpT conference and the Blogger meet up. Just be YOU! There's NO ONE else like you! :)

  30. I'm nervous, too! I get overwhelmed by large crowds and star struck over people I look up to. (Like YOU!). I'm fine in small groups but get tongue tied at big gatherings- unless it's children =)
    All of us Nervous Nellies can support one another and we'll be fine!

  31. I have a funny feeling that most of use are the same way: we are all chatty and friendly online, but face to face we clam up. This is my third year in Vegas, and I'm still nervous! Last year, at the Blogger Meet up, I was terrified, but I took a deep breath, put on my "extrovert" face, and walked around the room. I smiled and introduced myself to hundreds of fellow bloggers, and I'm glad I did it! I'm sure you'll be fine! (I can't wait to meet you!)

  33. I love hearing that so many people are nervous about meeting others at the conference. It makes the rest of us feel much better that we aren't alone! Can't wait to meet you in person! And, as always, thanks for the linky and for allowing me to be a sponsor this month! :)

  38. Ahhh... I am from the SIPP, Gulfport to be exact! If only the hubby didn't up and move be to Canada 3 years ago. I fly down at least twice a year to visit and think about how much I miss the coast and warm weather. Oh, and the food! My mouth is watering just thinking about southern food. Yum.
    And girl are you serious?! You are totally feeling me because I feel like you are such a pro at this! You have nothing to be nervous about. Me on the other hand... a 3rd year blogger and TPTer who has been slow at it all would have A LOT to be nervous about. I would be a lost ant in a big ant hill. lol. You on the other hand will be like a celebrity girl. I wish I was going. Hopefully next year. I hope you have a fabulous time in the Sipp and in Vegas. :)

  40. I totally understand! I would much rather sit behind my computer than expose myself to the real world! I went to Vegas last year and felt exactly like this! It is terrifying and intimidating, but I'm pretty sure that 80% of the TpTers that attended the conference were in exactly the same boat... scared and lost! And everyone is so nice! I hope you have a wonderful time! We will not be going this year... bummer... but, maybe next year!

    PS... I played club and college soccer. Who did you play for?
