Currently ~ Juy

I'm linking up again with Farley again for her monthly Currently linky. I always love doing this and reading everyone's post to get to know them better. 
Listening - I'm watching Kelly & Michael as I work on some TPT this morning. It's a bit hard to look at Michael the same since I just saw Magic Mike XXL last night and he was in it. 

Loving - My husband and I make quick decisions so within of a week of deciding we wanted to move, we bought and sold a house. We are a little sick of the traffic where we live and being so close to neighbors. I want to be able to enjoy my back yard without looking into 5 other people's house. This is a great house, but we moved up here from southern IN and needed to find a house quick. This was a spec home and ready to move in, so it worked for the time being.  We found a house last Friday and then put our house on the market on Monday. Our house sold it less than 24 hours, SO EXCITING!!! 
Thinking - We wanted a smaller home since it's just the 2 of us and a smaller mortgage payment...who doesn't :) Anyway, we bought a small ranch that needs a bit of work but backs up to a golf course. My husband is a HUGE golf fan. He loves the screened in porch and deck that it has, so now we can enjoy the view. 
We completely remodeled our 1st home in southern IN from top to bottom, so a remodel doesn't scare us. It's a lot of work, but I love how it truly is your home once it's done. We also like a very modern look, which is harder to find around here. I've beens searching Pinterest for ideas of how to redo our new kitchen. I love this look of white cabinets, light counters, and dark hand-scraped floors. We'll see if we can pull this off!
Wanting - My lower back has been hurting really bad the past few days. I think it's because I've been hunched over my computer for hours on end. Anyone else get the TPT back :)

Needing - The TPT conference is coming up and I leave in 1 week!! I need to start deciding what to wear and what to bring. I've had a few shirts made, but don't plan on decking my self out in blog attire every day. LOL! Can you tell I'm tickled pink for the conference? ;) 
All Star- If you follow me at all, you know I'm an all star at organization and a bit OCD. I love organizing things! Our relator went in my closet room and commented on how organized I was. Yes, I organize by color then short sleeve, long sleeve, tanks, etc. My mom tells me that I actually wanted to be a cleaning lady for a bit when I was little because I just love things so neat and tidy.

  3. That is amazing that you sold your house so fast!! Congratulations on selling and buying. I would love to have my backyard back up to a golf course. That would be heaven to me! I think I pinned that same kitchen when we were doing our kitchen remodel. Have a great time in Vegas! I wish I was going to be there with all you lovely ladies. Hopefully I will get there next year!

  6. Congratulations on your new home adventures! I love the shirts & tanks you had made. Where did you get those? I hope your back pain disappears soon!

    1. I got the tank from Ink Thread. http://inkthread.com
      The t-shirt from A+ Images http://www.aplusimages.com
      The long sleeve tee was made by Dana Lester. She made it for me when I went to the French Lick meet-up in Indiana.

      I just scheduled a massage, so hoping it'll get better soon!

  7. Congrats on the house! My husband and I want to do the same thing... buy a smallish house on a little bit of land and then remodel. It is kind of hard to find something for the right price! I loooove that white kitchen! :) See you in Vegas! :)
