Currently May Vol. 2


Celebrating:  Mother’s Day!  I had a wonderful day out with my boys.  They are both home for the summer, from college, and I am so happy!  We took the afternoon to go downtown for 2nd Sunday on King.  While scrolling through the square, I happen to see an old friend driving by.  He parked and walked with us and bought us dinner at the restaurant at which he works.  It was so good to catch up on old times. 

Still Working On:  Standardized testing…the summer can’t get here soon enough.

Receiving:  My first Influenster box!  J  It felt so good to come home and find my complimentary Influenster Sprout Voxbox waiting for me.  I can’t wait to try out all my goodies.  I received this box to test and review…for free!  So be sure to look for more in a future post. 

Tinkling:  With my new toy.  I "gifted" myself with a tablet and I LOVE IT.  I really needed to get this so I could stop lugging around my laptop.  This is so much more convenient. 

Anticipating:  The launch of the #SeeSummerBetter campaign by Warby Parker.  Warby Parker offers affordable, prescription eyewear and  sunglasses starting at $95. When you purchase a pair of frames, you are also helping out someone else in need.  With a vast array of shapes and colors, you are sure to find a pair to please.  So hop on over to warbyparker.com to check out their site and be sure to follow them on Instagram for all the latest updates @warbyparker

Currently May

Hey there May! You've arrived so soon, which means summer is right around the corner...Yippee!  :)  Just wanted to catch you up on what I've been up to lately.


 Celebrating:  The end of the first week of testing! We made it through!  Long hours at work, but it all paid off.  So looking forward to this weekend.  Both of my boys will be home from college and it'll be Mother's Day weekend!  :) Check out this post my son sent to my Facebook page...priceless!  

This is my all-time favorite Mother's Day commercial from Publix...it always makes me cry.

Also, celebrating the life of the musical genius...Prince.  I think I am still in a state of disbelief.  It just doesn't seem real.

Reading:  Blog posts in my leisure and testing requirements at work.  I'm so ready for summer. 

Pondering:  What to do this summer?  I know I'll be spending time in Jacksonville with my friend Mia and her family.  Considering going to Wisconsin to visit family.  Haven't been in a while and it would be great to go during summer because the weather is so nice.  Need to plan some type of getaway now that I'm not going on the cruise...it's for good reason though.  Here's a little collage of me and Mia with two other friends.
Sipping:  On this deliciously, juicy Wonderful Wine Co. Red Wine Blend from my Club W subscription.  Have you used my link to get yourself a free bottle? 

 Going:  To our local Farmers Market.  Yes, I love to have a leisurely, Saturday stroll downtown, taking in the sites, and dining on some local produce.  

So what are you currently up to?
