April Currently

I am joining Farley @ Oh Boy 4th Grade for her monthly Currently.
Before I get to the April Currently, I want to share a few pictures from my past week and a half.
My baby turned 12.  We went to the Harlem Globetrotters Game and he got to meet Curly O'Neil. Curley graduated in Greensboro (just up the road) and is # 4 on the Top 25 Greatest Harlem Globetrotters.  If you haven't been to a Globetrotter Game, you should.  It is fun for the whole family. 
My niece turned 1.  She was Snow White for her birthday.
Check out the Chuck Taylor shoes!
 My sister in law got married in a small beautiful ceremony.
There really should be an age limit for Easter Egg Hunting!
This is my 17 year old and 19 year old who were running for the same egg!

Now, to my currently.
Listening:  It's 12:00 my time which means the News is on.
Loving:  I did not want a new car!  My car was almost paid off!  But, the turbo was going out on my daughter's car AND the axle, also!  We had to get rid of her car and FAST!  I was not about to buy another used car with NO warranty.  So, I gave Kait by car and I got a Kia Soul.  If I was going to have to get a new car, might as well be a fun one.  
So, I named my new Soul, Stuart, after Stuart Little!
Thinking:  My daughter has interviews over the next 2 weeks with 2 companies for her Summer Internship.  She is so nervous!  She had 1 interview with Liberty Mutal and they have called her back for a second interview in front of panels.  This morning, another company contacted her for an interview. 
Wanting:  I have had the opportunity to scrapbook a few times over the past 2 weeks.  I spent about 2 hours yesterday just organizing my recent order from Snapfish - $100 worth of photos. Now, I can add the photos to these Christmas pages.
Needing:  I have an eye appointment today.  The first in over 5 years.  I thought it was time to go  before I had a car accident at night.  AND during last week's observation, I was reading and messed up on a word or two because I couldn't see them very well!  
Advice:  I always try to look for the positive!  There is too much doom and gloom in the world to focus on.  Look for the bright side and you will be a much happier person!
Happy Spring, Ya'll!

  1. I agree with you about the age limit to the egg hunts...that picture is hilarious! The rule in my family is that you don't get excused from the egg hunt until you have a kid of your own to bring to the egg hunt! Therefore, we have many hunters in their twenties!
