Currently, April is my Favorite Month

Hello! Hope you enjoy learning more about me through Farley's Currently. Go link up! It is so fun. I actually get super excited the night before, when I know CURRENTLY will be released the next day. #truestory

Over winter break, I found a new group through Itunes that I love! It is an acapella group of women and men who sing popular songs. Here is the video I first heard that had me hooked. Click to listen. Below is my new favorite. AMAZING!

I love chunky necklaces. I am a true believer that jewelery can transform a whole outfit. Want to see how I paired two necklaces together? Click here! You can never go wrong with chunky necklaces. I find most of my fun neck-wear at Franceca's, Nordstrom or Forever 21. Currently, loving two different necklaces put together to make one bold statement.
Tomorrow is a big day for Ramona Recommends. She (yes, the blog is a she) is launching Ramona Recommends' Book Club. I have had many emails of interest. So, I am excited. Just hope everything works out. I have told people interested that this is my first online book club for teachers. We are going to learn together. It will be great. If you are interested, check back here tomorrow for the BIG reveal. I am SUPER SUPER excited.*I just reread this to check for errors, and I am laughing. This paragraph sounds like I am standing in front of my mirror reassuring myself. Dear Self- This is going to be great! :)
Yes, it is happening whether I like it or not. When I wake up on Friday, April 25, I will be 30. Honestly, I am excited because I feel that every year I learn more and become a better person. So this birthday girl needs a new cute party dress for her 30th celebration. Don't worry, I already have my date with Nordy's on my calendar during Spring Break. OH by the way, (hint, hint, hint... You might want to check back at Ramona Recommends during my birthday week for A HUGE HUGE surprise. It is going to be BIG!

After Turbo Kick Box, I need to run to Target. I am creating a special gift for a special friend. It involves many yellow products. Once I give her this gift tomorrow, I will post it on instagram. :) I hope it makes her smile ear to ear.

 There aren't enough in the day! My position is part time. I wake up at 6:15 and I am out the door by 7:10. With lovely Southern California traffic, I have to give my stuff plenty of time on the freeway. I get to school at 8am and leave 12:30. I run home eat a quick lunch. I live about 30 minutes away from my school. After lunch, I pack up all my tutoring gear and head out the door. Yes, I also have a tutoring business called, "Tutor with Heart". Then, I head to the gym most days. I come home eat dinner and shower. Next, (I have created Ramona Recommends office hours) I will work on writing posts, answering emails, picking books, or working on TpT products. Then, I will plan or do Courtney life until I go to bed. Wow! I am exhausted thinking about all of this. You know what? I LOVE IT! I know my life is going to keep changing for the better and my schedule will be different. So for right now, I will enJOY it! OH, and I get out of school June 25th.

Can't wait to learn about you!


  1. Courtney, your book club is going to be awesome! What a fun idea! Happy birthday, beautiful lady! Your 30s will be some of your best years! Embrace them and they will serve you well. I live in So. Cal too, so I completely understand your drive time hassles. It never makes any sense. Thanks for sharing a little of you with all of us.
