Hello Bloglovin' and Currently

I am cutting it close!  Nothing like waiting til the last minute, right!?
I finally made the switch to Bloglovin.  I wasn't about to lose all those fabulous blogs I have been following for the last year!  
If you haven't made the switch, go now!  Don't delay.  
It is very easy to switch all your blogs over from Google Reader!

While you are here, follow me. 


it's time to join Farley's Currently.

Listening:  After church, Sundays are for football games!  But in the off season, it's for Lifetime TV!  I always get sucked into whatever is on.   The funny thing is that my hubby often ends up watching them too!

Loving:  My daughter will be a junior this fall.  Over the summer she has been a PAID intern at Ally Financial.  (Her pay as an intern is not too far from my salary with a Master's and 21 years experience!)  She has done so well, they offered her a job part time throughout the year!
- My 17 year old has always been a defensive player in most of the sports he played.  He is now trying out for receiver on the football team and is doing well.  I am getting pumped up for the football season and his senior year!

Thinking:  Only 21 days til we are off to our beach trip.  Sand, sun, family, and friends.  Doesn't get much better!
Above: My mom, sister, me, and my best friend, Anita.
We will be joining Anita and her family at the same beach as above.

Wanting: I have been walking/jogging/running since June 10th with only missing a few days.  The shoes I have are not doing the job!  "Mama needs a new pair of shoes!"                
Needing:  I am up to an hour workout & sometimes even burning 500 calories, but the scales are not going down fast enough.  I need to add dieting to this summer plan and I don't want to!  I'm eating well during the week, but weekends are tough!

Tips, Tricks, or Hints:  I love genuine comments!  So, be sure to comment when you feel led.
Join the linkies.  You will meet new bloggers and gain more exposure.  Photos make reading blogs more fun and interesting to read.



  1. The beach is my happy place! I'm hoping we can fit in another trip before school starts! I love your blog and am a new follower! Enjoy your summer!

    1. Thank you, Susan! Good luck fitting in another trip!

  2. Tamara, your daughter is gorgeous, and GO HER for getting that internship and nailing it! :)

    I love your tips! I think genuine blog comments are SO important!

    The Hands-On Teacher in First!

    1. Thanks Marie! I am quite proud of her accomplishments!

  3. Hi...found you at Farley's!

    I completely agree with you about the photos; only problem is I tend to add too many. LOL

    I can't wait for my boys to start football again either!

    Enjoy the rest of your summer, and I hope you have a wonderful family trip!

    1. Hi Tina,
      Thanks for stopping by! Football will be here before we know it, but so will school! Yikes!

  4. Hi there,
    I found you at Farley's Currently. My youngest just graduated from high school and my oldest is in college. It sounds like we are on the same path.
    I Dream of First Grade

    1. Thanks for stopping by Sarah! I also have another son, Tanner, who is going into 7th grade. They grow up so fast. I wish they were little again!

  5. Better late than never! I switched yesterday. Have fun on your beach trip, it will be here before you know it!

    For the Love of First Grade

    1. Hi Lindsay! Looks like we both are procrastinators!

  6. I agree with your tip, I love reading posts that have pictures & I'm trying to make sure I take pictures of things, even for future posts. Speaking of pictures, your daughter's eyes are so bright & beautiful, that picture is breathe taking.


    1. Thank you Stephanie! Kait gets her eyes from her daddy!

  7. Good luck with your workouts. My feet love Nike Pegasus. It's the only thing I run in, and my feet never complain.

    Forever in First

    1. I will have to look for the Nike Pegasus shoes soon!

  8. Just found your blog through the linky party and it is so super cute! Have a blast at the beach!
