Yeah, that happened.

I'm so excited that it's May! I love our science unit this month, I'm one of those crazy people that love gearing up for Open House, and I love that all of my summer plans are just around the corner!

And I love that it's time for another Currently!

Ah, Mr. Buble.  What you do to me with that perfect-pitch voice of yours.  And the new album is no exception. It's currently on constant repeat in my car.

I am such a girly-girl. I have always loved dresses and skirts, and am completely in LOVE with the fact that dresses are coming back around.  And they're cuter than ever!  I love the "no-brainer" quality of a good dress. What to wear? Dress!  No need to match shirt and skirts. They're an all-in-one deal.  They make me happy. :)

Singing. In front of the whole school. Kiddos. Parents. Staff. District personnel.  Yup, it's going down in about one hour.  From now. Today.  It's "Pajama Story Hour" at school tonight, and somehow I nominated myself to sing as one of the acts.  Rethinking that decision now...  It'll be fun.  And my kids are just a teeny bit excited.

It's in the 90s outside right now. And I think we're supposed to hit 100 tomorrow.  I'm going to start a protest.  This is wrong.  I'm not ready for summer weather yet. Though, I do love wearing dresses... 

My cousin's baby shower is this Sunday, and being the queen of last-minute shopping, I have no gift. Yet.  I'll get one. Maybe on Saturday. Or on Sunday on my way to the shower.

As to my summer bucket list, have I mentioned yet that I'M GOING TO ENGLAND? Ok.  Now that I have that out of my system (46 days!) some of my other plans are to take in the Mammoth Jazz Jubilee 'cause I love me some good 'ole jazz and all the great friends that congregate there each summer.  I'm also in the works to plan a tour of the Pacific Northwest this summer. I have a sister in Portland, a best friend in Bend, an amazing friend in Seattle, and a stamping buddy in BC.  I've gotta make this happen. Just figuring out the logistics and timing is going to keep things interesting.

Phew!  Now to eat some dinner before running back to school.

To sing.

In front of everyone.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Hi Kristina~ I found your blog through Farley! You are brave to sing in front of your school. I am a horrible singer, and I could never do that!
    England sounds like awesome summer plans! I haven't been there is a long time. My husband got to go to the Olympics last summer. I was SO jealous!
    Enjoy your weekend!

  3. Ohh I *LOVE* baby showers - they are so fun! I love strolling through the baby aisles of Taregt and picking our gifts. I can't wait for a baby of my own to shop for!

    I agree about dresses - there's nothing better than a new Spring dress :)

  4. Sing it loud, sing is strong - show those kids and parents how to do it :) Sure they will all be blessed and the kids in awe that their teacher can sing so well! You can send some of your warm weather up our way....such a cold spring, though we finally have some warmer temps and sunshine - yeah!! Jumping with joy about the PNW trip :) :) If it makes it easier I can drive down to Seattle to meet you as it's about a 2 - 2.5 hour drive so not bad at all. Have a fabulous w/e ((hugs))

  5. Hope the singing went well! Sounds like you have a busy summer ahead. Enjoy it!
