I'm CURRENTLY loving February

I love listening to Bruno Mars! Since he is performing in the halftime show tomorrow, I thought I would get started early. What a wonderful talented gentlemen. Currently, crushing on his song- When I was your Man. This song reminds me to enJOY every minute of the day. Do what needs to be done and don't look back and think I missed something.

Sorry this section is a little long! :) As we have all learned, teachers must reflect constantly! I remember during my credential program, we had to reflect on every little assignment we turned in. At the time, I was like ugh! But now, I find it such a valuable tool in my life- job and personal. So reflecting has sort become part of my daily routine. In 2014, my OWL was JOY. I have opened my mind to so many new things to enjoy. I have said YES to many things that I would have passed by. I have said yes to no soda during the week. I was so nervous at first, but honestly it has been so easy. People, I LOVE soda, but I love my health more. I have started doing a detox cleanse with my sister through Arbonne. It is AMAZING. If you want more dets, let me know :), I have started going back to church. I have started looking in my closet before shopping. I have been looking for the joy in everything. I have started to eat at home more. I have started to love myself for me. Remember when I posted this freebie on TpT (Today I will....) I am living! Today I will be confident, me, someone's wish..... I am starting look in the mirror and love what I am seeing back. I am looking for joy in my face. I am an overall happy person, but I am so glad that I have decided to look for JOY in EVERYTHING.

I have a huge to-do list. I want to get most of it done tonight, because tomorrow is a BIG day in my house. My to-do list consists of: CURRENTLY, planning out my Tuesday blog, planning out my blog appearance over at Twenty Something Teacher blog, work for this week, laundry, logging in some of my new books into my book catalog, cleaning my office, and more. :) Does a teacher's to-do list ever end?

I need a new workout schedule. I will let you know how that goes. :)

I am huge Bronco fan! I can't wait until tomorrow. I already have my outfit of orange and navy blue waiting in my closet. GO BRONCOS!!!! TOUCHDOWN!

2 Truths ! Fib:
I love how the creator of this month's currently used fib and not lie! :) I am left handed. I am the only one in my family. I love it! But! Did you ever notice how white board markers are not made for left handed people. It is SOOOO annoying! I love my handwriting, but on the board it is ick!
Organization- I love it! Every item in my life has a place. Sometimes it does get messy- as in right now-my desk looks like a pigpen. I am cleaning it after I press PUBLISH!
Zumba- FIB! I love doing many different activities as exercise. I love Turbo Kick Box, running, walking, Zumba, and hiking. 

Go link up with Farley!!!

Hope you learned a little more about me! Have a great Super Bowl Sunday!!!! GO BRONCOS!

  3. I'm not much of a football fan, but it's hard not to get drawn into the Super Bowl. I'm flying to Vancouver today so I think I'll be surrounded by Seahawks fans. Hope it's a good game to watch. I like games with lots of scoring.

    Good luck with your to do list.

    1. Hi Debbie!

  4. Hello! I really enjoyed your CURRENTLY! There is so much power in the decision to find JOY in everything you do. That has been a promise I have made for myself as well.I love how even before you declared this in your CURRENTLY, that "JOY" was in caps in every word. It shows just how much you are living in it now!

    I can relate on the huge to-do lists...ugh! I am trying to enJOY making them and completing them to a t! It great how you plan out your blogging. I am new t blogging and I have caught myself thinking, " I have to blog this!" Hopefully one day I will gain an audience and even guest blog!

    Random Blurb: I am also a lefty! When I read your "marker tidbit" I got this image of my board writing...sometimes it is not too pretty. I think you may be on to something!

    Last 2 things:
    I enjoyed getting to know you.
    I love that your blog is called "Ramona Recommends"

    Countdown to the SUPER-BOWL...good luck :-)
