December Currently

OMG!!!  OMG!!! OMG!!!!  I can barely catch my breath I'm so excited!!!  You see, today is December 1 and what is December 1?  Farley's Currently!  Well, this month she decided to take a break from designing and give her followers a shot.  So, a few weeks ago, I designed a Currently, sent it to her, and figured, "Hey!  If I didn't get it, no biggie, but why not try."  Every time I see them I think, "I wish I could design one!"  Well, OMG!!!  OMG!!!  OMG!!!!  Her mom picked the winner and she picked me!  Seriously people!  Me!!!!  Oh, and how did I find out?  My Blogging BFF Jessica Tobin at First Grade Nest sent me a text and asked if I was taking a nap yet.  I said, "Not yet, laying in bed, what's up?"  She said, "Have you done the Currently yet?"  Guys!  Sunday afternoon naps are pretty important in my life.  I know, sad, but I was raised on these Sunday naps.  The Currently didn't even pop in my brain.  After a few more messages it clicked why she was asking.  If not for her, I wouldn't have had a clue until late this afternoon if not tonight!  So on top of being overly excited, I'm SOOOO thankful for my girl looking out for me!!!!  She's the best!!!!

Anyway,  definitely check out Farley's Currently list because I swear it's like an online blogger meet up and all the cool people definitely check it out (Well, if I'm cool).  Oh yeah, and here's my Currently.

Yes, the fan is whirring… typically it's an old episode of some show on Netflix, but today quiet just seemed a little better.

See above… I swear my heart is beating a little faster… I am still just amazed!

I was sick ALL week last week… like when I say all week, I mean from the time I walked through the door November 22 until yesterday.  I didn't leave the house until Thanksgiving Day, so I'd really like a week off to play and create since I slept all week last week.  Although have to say, I'm so very thankful I had a week off to sleep and didn't have to worry about subs or any of that stuff.

A nap… a long nap, but today will be short… I have some plans with friends tonight while the hubby stays home.  They are late afternoon, so that means a short nap.  Short is better than none though, right?

I have the world's longest checklist… I need to finish my Winter Printables Packet (So close to being done), lesson plans, grades, centers, get ready for the TPT sale, freebies… oh, wait… freebies… I do have that done!!!!  Below is one of my more recent freebies.  I thought in case some of you missed the hop, I'd post my freebie here.  Hope you can use it.  Oh, and if you like sales (I love them!) be sure to check out my TPT store tomorrow and Tuesday.  Everything is 20% off and then TPT is giving another 10% if you use their code CYBER.

I am a tradition girl.  Like I can't imagine not having traditions at Christmas time.  When we were little, my sister and I would get upset if anyone even sat in a different seat whenever we celebrated a holiday. Out of all the holidays, my favorite was Christmas Eve and it is still at the top of my list although now we call it Christmas Eve before Christmas Eve (That's what happens when you get married).  The reason it's my favorite tradition is every Christmas Eve (as long as I can remember) we have Dinglewood scrambled dogs, cherry Cokes, and BBQ potato chips for dinner.  Then, all of us sit in the living room and open our gifts together.  As a little girl, when this was finished I got two gifts from my parents before the night was over - a HUGE box of Crayola crayons (you know the one with the pencil sharpener) and new pajamas.  So, even now Christmas is magical to me except for now I like to make it magical for others, just like my grandparents and parents made it magical for us.

Alright guys!  Thanks for listening to me ramble!  Time to get in that short nap!  If I haven't told you lately, I love y'all for following, emailing, and making me laugh!  Hope you have a great Sunday!
