13 in '13!

I'm linking up for a fabulous linky 13 in '13!!
 I got some fabulous Christmas jammies and now I never want to get out of them! 
I love Love LOVE both of these movies! I have seen both of these twice and I am planning on a third showing for each :) 

I am an avid TV watcher and thanks to the magic of the internet, I can keep up on all my shows even when I work late!

Whenever my friends and I all get together we end up at Shari's till 2am!  We are quite a crazy bunch of kiddos but I have the most marvelous time with them :) 
I tried singing solos in church this year and it was absolutely terrifying!  But since they didn't ban me from the choir I think it went okay :)

I got this book from my brother with the SWEETEST note inside!  Who knew he was such a softy!!

Do I have to choose just one?!  I am on Pinterest almost   But this one just warms my heart!

Well I don't have a whole lot since I started this puppy in June...but I really like this one

I graduated college and got a teaching job!  You can read about that crazy adventure here :)

I have found this SPLENDID group of individuals to call friends through church this year and we do everything together!  There are even a few teachers thrown into the mix!  
 Oh gosh...just any time I get to spend with my kiddos (students) just having fun!  They are the most fabulous group of 3rd graders!!

To remember to take a step back and just enjoy where I'm at.  Sometimes I forget to take a break and stop planning my life.

{Currently} December

Holy guacamole!  I can't believe how the school year had flown by!  December?  How did that happen?!? So I am linking up with Farly for this months Currently!

Listening - We got our wood stove taken out a few days ago and our existing fireplace was in great condition so now we have the absolute JOY of a fire any time we want!!!

Loving - I am the girl counterpart to Buddy the elf.  Seriously, we are kindred spirits!  This is my favorite time of year and I couldn't be more thrilled to be sitting at home watching the snow falling outside my window :)

Thinking - I am allllllll for the occasional snow day.  Especially since we have just gotten a brand new blanket of snow!

Wanting - When I was younger, my brother and I always got a new outfit for Christmas and Easter.  Even though I am a little older, I still love the tradition!

Needing - I find it so hard to focus on grading papers and planning lessons when there are romps to be had in the snow!

Favorite Tradition - I love singing, and I get such joy from singing at church!  And midnight mass is a time where magic just comes alive and there is a little bit of heaven everywhere! 

There you have it folks!  I have finally gotten around to blogging and hopefully it won't be so long in between posts next time :)
