May Currently....oooohhh "Surprise"!

It's been a lil' while since I've gotten to link up 
with the super sweet Farley from Oh Boy' Fourth Grade.
It's the first of the month which means May Currently.

listening: I'm listenin' to the T.V.  Nashville was finally back on last
night and I just had to find out what was goin' on.

loving: I splurged on myself today.  I went into town to a cute
lil' shop, Plum Delightful, to scoop up a Mariana necklace
and pair of earrings that I have been eyeballin'. 
They've also got a really neat Facebook page called
I want EVERYTHING on there!
 It's goin' to match
perfectly with my crystal dot bracelet from Mindy Mae's Market.

thinking: What in the world am I goin' to wear to the Talladega
Nascar race this weekend?  I've never been to this should
be interestin' for sure. 
Go #11 Denny Hamlin!

wanting: Many of my besties like to go to a place in Troy, Alabama
called Sikes and Kohn's Country Mall.  They always scoop up 
cute stuff there, so I want to go too. (Insert whiny voice!) am I gonna convince the three dudes in the car
that the two chicks just HAVE to go shoppin' on the way?

needing: If you follow me on Instagram, you know I sent 
some flowers to my Nitty (my 92 year old grandma), 
my Mommy & Daddy this week.
My Nitty is under the weather...super sad face.  
I normally spend several weeks 
in the summer with her in Georgia, but this year 
I will be goin' out to California to see her instead.
I need to figure out which day I'm goin' since we get out of 
school on June 6th. 
I'm so ready to see my family.  
I haven't seen them since I miss them terribly.
I NEED to be with them!
My Nitty doesn't like gettin' her picture taken, but I just
had to share...isn't she cute?

surprise: I'm braggin' about my new bloggy friend, Cassie from 
Funky in Fourth.  I happened upon her blog and left her a comment 
not too long ago.  When she replied, I couldn't help but notice
her middle name in her email address.
It's the SAME as mine.....LEA!
How fantabulous is that? 
Fun fact....did you know "lea" means "meadow"?
Go meet my new friend Cassie Lea and give her some love!

I know I already posted once today for my Positive Thinking Thursday
about BACON, but I couldn't miss May's Currently.
Be sure to head on over to Farley's blog and check
out the other Currentlys.
She has switched things up a lil' this read carefully.

Happy Thursday again, friends!

  9. You'll have fun at Talladega! I grew up 7 miles from the track and always heard the cars when they were racing. I've only been to one race at Dega (my boyfriend is a huge Jeff Gordan fan so it all works out!) but it was so much fun! Whatever you wear, be sure to bring sunscreen and earplugs (or wear a headset). Have fun!!

    1. I just got some purple ear plugs to match my purple Denny shirt! I need to dig out the sunscreen too! Thanks for the advice. I'm hoping all the people and noises won't overwhelm me!!

  10. Love the name for your Nitty! It is TOO cute!
    So...tell me about Nashville. Is it good? I do love my country music!

    1. I have been trying all day to reply to your comment. I tried at work and home and it would NOT let me reply. So weird. YES, you must watch Nashville. It's on the second season and I am HOOKED!

  11. Hope you're having a great weekend! Sounds like a lot of fun plans.

  12. Good thoughts heading your Nitty's way! I hope you are having a great weekend. I'm going to check out Funky in Fourth right now. ;)

  14. I love that you have a special name for your Grandma - my son named his Grandma "Hey Dude" because that's how she always greeted him. :)

  15. Now the whole world knows we have the same middle name! :) It makes me happy! :) Thanks for the shout out!! :)
