Currently...and a {Sale}!

      It really is December 1st!  This year has seriously sprouted wings and flown by!  My grandmother always told me that the older you get, the faster time will seem to pass!  She was certainly right!  My goodness, these next 3 weeks before we get out for Christmas break is going to be a blur!  It seems that we have something every single night until Christmas!  Even our school Christmas party is tomorrow night!  Talk about starting the season off early, but we wanted as many to be able to attend and if we waited...well, you know...

      December 1st also means it's time to link up with the fabulous Farley for Currently!  So here goes...

Nothing says Christmas like a bunch of zombies!  Ha!  I really do like Christmas movies, but I am a little obsessed with The Walking Dead!  A LOT of this season has been shot in and around my hometown so it's really cool to see all the local places!  If you follow me on Instagram, I have posted some pics of the different locales.  

I love Christmas!  I am so glad it's here!

You know that teacher bag we probably all took home with great intentions?  Mine is still sitting in almost the same spot it was when I first brought it home!  Yours too?  Yeah...good intentions...  I really wanted to get some things done, but alas, they did not get done so now I am cramming to get it done (and I'm blogging too --that helps get it done faster, right?)

Christmas shopping needs to get done quickly!  Our first exchange gifts get-together is with my mother this coming weekend!  She and her husband spend the winter in Florida and want to get an earlier start this year so we're doing Christmas this weekend!  I at least have to get them done!!

I absolutely need nothing!  I have plenty of wants!  Just ask my husband! But honestly, I don't need a single iota!  I really want to concentrate on being content in all things!

My favorite tradition is decorating for Christmas!  I hate getting all the boxes out, but once I get everything going, I love it!  Each little ornament and decoration has such meaning!  Memory lane and Christmas all rolled into one!  Ha!

Well, Thanksgiving and Black Friday have come and gone.  Now, it is time for Cyber Monday and to wipe your wish list out!  Click on the pic to take you to my store!  Everything is 20% off and if you use the code CYBER, TpT is giving an extra percentage off!

I have added a few new things this week:

Scan and Listen Christmas Listening Center

Scan and Listen Winter Listening Center

Holiday Magic-A Christmas mini-unit

Happy shopping and I hope you have a great first day back after the break!

Till next time...


  1. Cute blog! I found you through Farley's currently. I know what you mean about being busy. I love his time of year, but there is always something to do!

  2. Robin, I know what you mean by having a full calendar! I don't know when we will have time to just sit and enjoy the holiday. Our school get together is Thursday evening, which also happens to be my youngest daughters school chorus concert. Can't wait to hear her sing! Enjoy this season, we are so blessed!
