Currently February and a Giveaway!

It's February, and hopefully that means Spring can't be long off. 
That groundhog better show us some love tomorrow.
It's time for Farley's Currently.  I love the design this month.
Listening to Covino & Rich on Sirius XM is my guilty pleasure. They are so funny!
I am so excited!!! I've been looking at houses for the last few months and found one I love!
I made an offer yesterday and am waiting to hear back.  Fingers crossed!
Yes - my report cards are due Monday.  Of course my house will be spotless this weekend as I try out  all my best cleaning avoidance techniques.
I've made a deal with myself.  If I get a good chunk of the report cards done today I can head out to the mall and get those earrings.
Uh -yeah - another day, another driveway to shovel. That's life here in the Midwest this winter.
Number 1 is my fib - I hate running.  I would much rather walk or ride a bike.
I have sung on Good Morning America! I was on vacation in NYC with some family members and we were attending a taping of the show. Diane (Sawyer) asked someone to sing, so I did.  My 15 seconds of fame are up.
My niece and her husband had a baby boy at the end of December.  He's adorable!

I am part of a big giveaway this week. 
Carol from Carol's Garden and a slew of awesome bloggers have donated items for this giveaway.

  1. Good luck with the house! That is really exciting! It is also very cool that you sang on Good Morning America! What a great story!

  2. I was wrong...about your fib. I was going to guess the singing one was the fib. How awesome is that? Do you have a recording of that show? If I did I'd make my family watch it over and over...hahha. I'm so jealous of you having snow in the winter. I'm in Oregon and it pretty much never snows here - my city is about at sea-level and it only snows in the mountains or other places. It's funny that it always seems like "the grass is greener on the other side." I want some snow to shovel :) You blog design is darling. I love the geometric designs and the shadows on the layers - it's super cute!

  3. Loved everything about your 'Currently' post today! I really hope you get that house that you found. You will have to keep us posted! I also love how you talk about your report cards. I am happy to report that I too, will have a spotless house, car, classroom, etc., right before report cards are due.....super funny how that works out! I'm sure you deserve those earrings after the hard work from this weekend and I bet you'll get them done in no time! ;)

  4. Good Luck with the house! I'm south west of Chicago and it's been snowing ALL DAY and all of last night. I'm over it.
    You made me realize that I could be a great aunt in the next few years. Wow, that's scary to me. But exciting at the same time.
