Currently wiped out!

Steven and I got back from Puerto Rico last night, so this morning was my time to start catching up on blogs. I was thinking of doing a late Five for Friday AND Currently, but that's too much for right now. I promise a post about Puerto Rico later, but for now I'll just link up with Farley.

Listening: I know I should have stopped him (by the time I did, half of the food was in their water bowl), but I'm tired. Plus he didn't eat any (I hope).

Loving: Puerto Rico was nice, but I have missed my little guy SO MUCH! He's just the cutest thing ever, and he's growing too fast!

Thinking: Obvious

Wanting/Needing: I got pretty cooked the last day at San Juan, and it itches like crazy. I've been putting aloe vera on, but I need to do some more.

Tips, tricks, or hints: If you want to gain followers, you have to actively seek followers. Find blogs that you like and/or connect with (fellow local bloggers, similar grade levels), and comment. Don't just say that you found their blog. Talk about what they're posting, ask questions, and stay in contact! I've "met" some wonderful ladies through blogging that are great resources and blogging friends! It drives my hubby crazy, but I feel like I know them!

Okay, that's it for now. I smell a dirty diaper, and we're getting close to lunch time. Plus Keagan wants to play!


  1. So glad you were able to take a lovely vacation to Puerto Rico! How fun! Vacations are SO much fun, but it is great to be HOME as well. I am excited to explore more of your blog!
    Happy Sunday!

  3. I can't wait to hear about your vacation. Unpacking is never fun! Your tip is absolutely true. The only way to make bloggy friends is by commenting and starting conversations. Good luck with your sunburn. OUCH!

  4. Thank you for the blogging tips! I tend to read all these blogs but tend to forget to actively comment. I'm your newest follower and I look forward to reading your blog. I teach grade 4 and it's great to find other people with common grade levels/experience.

  5. Great tip! Also, I feel your pain. Sunburn is no fun. Hopefully you can get some aloe soon.

  6. That's a great tip. I laughed a little at the thought of Keagan playing with the dog food. Kids can make toys out of everything! Glad you're safely back!
