July is Here

How is it already July?  This summer seems to be flying by....probably because I have been so busy.  I am not complaining though.  I have been having a blast this summer.

I am linking up with Farley again for Currently.  Head on over to her blog to link up as well!

Listening:  I am on vacation in the Ozarks and it is "rest time" meaning that we have already been swimming, skiing, and kneeboarding.  Usually after lunch we take a little nap, but today I decided to stay up and enjoy the peace and quiet (well and blog ;).

 (I got my toes in the water.....)

Loving:  I love the lake life.  In fact, I keep singing that song "I love the night life", but I keep singing it as "I Love the Lake Life".  I may be annoying my husband, but it keeps me happy.

Thinking:  I wish we could stay here all summer, but we have to head home in a few days.  It is always just so relaxing here.

Wanting:  I want time to stand still for awhile.  I am loving this summer!

Needing:  I have a paper due on Thursday for grad school and I am just not finding the motivation to get it done.  :(

4th plans:  We always celebrate down here and actually we are celebrating tomorrow.  The WHOLE family (well pretty much) will be here so we will be setting off fireworks here at the cabin, eating lots of yummy food, and just having a great time!  I can't wait!


  1. Hi Amanda!
    I found you through Farley's Currently. Look so relaxing at the lake house. I can see why you don't want to go back. I wouldn't either. Good luck with your paper!!
