December Currently

It's The Most Wonderful Time . . . of the Year!!! It truly is because Christmas time is my favorite time. You know what else is my favorite? Farley's Currently linky at Oh' Boy 4th Grade

Look how cute this button is! It even has a hidden elf on a shelf on the lower left. Ah...I die! Too adorbs!

Listening: Okay, Okay . . . so I have another teeny bopper song that I am listening to. Surprise surprise! But seriously, how can you not find this song catchy? I don't care if Selena Gomez is singing about the Biebs. Whatever she needs to heal and move on, I support ya, girl! After all, what female doesn't know or has not gone through a bad relationship but still was in it because that's what the heart wanted at the time? Luckily for a lot of us, our brain caught up with our heart.

Loving: I am SO in love with all the Christmas decorations that are up around my neighborhood! BUT, because nobody ain't got time to go house by house to take pics of my neighbor's decorations, I'll settle for showing you what I have been working on at my house instead.

This is my night view when I enter my community's gate:

Found this awesome Christmas countdown at Target:

My dress form even got a make-over all thanks to Victoria Secret:

Two new friends surround my night table. Aren't they cute? All at Lowes!

My work/craft table:

Thinking: 3 more weeks until my 3 weeks Christmas break! Let the countdown begin!!!

Wanting: Urban Outfitter's Macaron shaped jewelry boxes. I mean . . . let the picture speak for itself:

Even though it is Cyber Monday, I just can't bring myself to cough up $10 each for these. First of all, if I get it, I would have to get ALL of the colors, which there are a total of 10 on the website, so that would cost me $100. SIGH . . . decisions, decisions . . .

Needing: I said it before, but I'll say it again . . . I need to hit the gym! 2015 Resolution (again).

Giving: I have never done this before since I am not a TpT seller, but I will try it and hopefully it works. I am putting up my "While You Were Absent" folder covers that I have for my students when they are absent. I made several versions of it to last me an entire school year and here are 2 for you to choose from. Enjoy! (You can find my original blog post on how I use these HERE).

Wishing everyone a Happy and Safe Holiday Season!


  1. Those jewelry boxes are so cute! Your Christmas decorations look great... I love seeing them all over the place, too!

    1. Hi Caitlin! Thanks so much! Aren't the cases just adorable? I wish they weren't so pricey =(

  2. Hi Kristin! I found your blog through Farley's Currently blog hop. I totally hear you when it comes to the gym thing. I always have the best intentions and then my schedule always gets in the way and I don't commit to going regularly. I wish us BOTH good luck on the gym resolutions :)
