Currently and Christmas gift idea

Oh on Earth did it get to be December?  New month, new attitude!  I'm not, not, not, you hear me, NOT going to gain any weight in December!  Even if I have to sew my mouth shut!  I finally finished my stash of Reese pumpkins (and off with their head for anyone who brings me a Reese tree)!  Those things are like crack!  Haha!  And I got my need (want) for Hardees out of my system this morning.  It's time to wipe the dust off of those Zumba dvds!

It's also time for Farley's Currently... 

I promised myself I'd be a better blogger in November, but I have this Common Core project that is taking me just forever to finish.  I came up with this great idea to align EVERYTHING I've ever bought on TPT and all the games/activities/centers/etc I own to the Common Core with labels and a spreadsheet and color coded.  Miss Organization, you know?  I had NO IDEA I had this much good stuff but it is taking me forstinkingever. I'm getting there! At least it's not still spread out all over my living room floor.  

Moving on..
Have you bought your students a Christmas gift yet?  If not, check these out!

My dear teaching partner and I have been buying these 100 piece art kits for our kids for several years.  They (((LOVE))) them!  You are the best teacher ever kind of love.  ;-)  They are on sale at Michaels for 2.79 plus your 15% off teacher discount.  Someone on Facebook said yesterday that her Michaels has them for 1.89!!  

Have a wonderful week and go link up with Farley!

Much loves,


  1. I need to get organized in my classroom. For the last week I have tried to stay after work a little bit each day and go through all my files. I didn't realize I had so much. I'm thinking this is something I will have to do over the summer.

    I refuse to go into Michael's because I lose time and money when I am in there. :-)

  2. Hi Crystal! Thanks for visiting my blog! You are so lucky to get to go to Ikea! I went to the one in Tampa last summer and loved it! I wish we had one here in Jacksonville.

    Thanks for the children's gift idea! I'll have to check it out at Michael's.

  6. Wow! I guess you are organized. I would NEVER EVER have the patience to do that. What a cute gift. I bought my kids a book from Scholastic! They love getting a new book! Wishing you a wonderful Holiday
