April Currently

Wowza!  April already!  It is hard to believe considering that March felt like the LONGEST month ever!  I'm linking up with Farley and her Currently while I am off drinking in a little sunshine over my Spring Break.
Listening:  It is so nice to visit with family over Spring Break.  We had an Easter egg hunt yesterday in the warm sunshine and the kids had so much fun.
Loving:  How about my Syracuse Orangemen!! Final Four Baby!  That is so exciting.  Those boys have had an incredible run to Atlanta.  They are so exciting to watch.  I love this shot of Michael Carter Williams.  He is warming up at a home game, his face just makes me laugh.

Thinking, Wanting and Needing:  I'm on Spring Break this week.  Although I HAD big plans to work on a few things for my classroom, right now I need more vitamin D in my life.  I think relaxing poolside and working on my tan is needed for a few days before I dive back in to school work.  The temperatures in the North East have been awful.. cold.. snowy.. unspring like.  So I am enjoying the warmer weather with  my family. 

Advice:  I've only been blogging for about 7 months, so I am still learning a LOT from the wonderful people out here in bloggy land, but one thing I think is important is leaving people a little comment love when you like something they have to say.  I find my blog gets a ton of hits when I put up freebies, but there are few comments.  If you like what people have to say, or even the Freebies they are offering, take time to comment back to them.  I have met some great people in bloggyland over the past few months, and it has really pushed me to think differently.

Stop on over and visit Farley and all the wonderful bloggers you can find there!


  1. I agree, I wish Spring Break would last much longer. I am getting so much accomplished this week and it is nice to have some time for rest and relaxation.

    Go Syracuse!

  3. Love your post. Even though I am super jealous of your pool time because it is too chilly here to soak up the rays...although that is ALL I wish I was doing for spring break this week!!! :) Great advice too. We all love getting comments but we're all guilty of snagging or pinning ideas without leaving our appreciation, too. All it takes is a few extra minutes and to make someone's day! :)

    1. Thanks for stopping in to visit me at Coffee Cups! I have really enjoyed the pool time. I needed some R&R!

  6. Absolutely you should get some vitamin D by sitting outside and working on your tan! I agree about the need for feedback and comments.

    1. You can never ever have too much coffee! I know I'm going back to 2 weeks worth of testing, and I'm not prepared~ I'm sure I'll be drinking A LOT of coffee.

  8. My daughter is a freshman at Syracuse! We are cheering along with you:)


  9. Have fun on your spring break-mine just ended. :)

    8 more weeks of school left!


    1. I'm jealous! 8 weeks! We have about 10 more to go once we get cranking again! I'd just be happy with warmer weather. It snow this week! in APRIL.. blech.
      I don't like sitting at the ball field in the cold weather.. I'd much rather be drinking ICED coffee instead of hot.

  10. Great advice! Also loving that baseball season has started - although I wish they would show more games on TV in Australia - I need to watch my Giants!!!

  11. First of all, I am so sorry about your Cuse! I was cheering for them too...the other orange and blue too. Opening Day was great in my house GO BRAVES!
    ...but seriously...great advice, I need to remember to leave more comments, especially when I get a good idea from a great post!

    Next time you come home, let's do Dunkin! (iced only!)
