This and that.....

I have about 1 million and 1 things going through my mind right now...and it's been a week since I last blogged...so today you're getting a list! Enjoy!

(1) THANK YOU!
Thanks to all of you who voted, I was named one of the Top 25 Teacher/Mom Blogs! You can check out my little bio HERE!
(2) Last Sunday we celebrated Nick's birthday with some family.  First we spent time with his Mom, Step dad, and Grandma.  Reagan had a great time playing and Nick loved eating some of his Mom's cooking!



We had dinner that night at Maggianno's with my family. And I'm not even kidding when I tell you I ate my leftovers for the rest of the week. That place gives you sooooo much food!

(3) I ordered my Christmas cards and just need to pick them up. I ended up doing them from Costco this year. They had a really good price and I was not looking to go broke over Christmas cards this year! I can not wait to start receiving some cards from family and friends!!
(Last year's Christmas card pic. It was a diaster. Reagan had a runny nose and pouted the entire shoot. So this year, we just decided to use pictures from throughout the past year.I'll post it once we get them mailed out.)
(4) Speaking of Christmas, I'm getting a little overwhelmed thinking about gifts. I have NO CLUE what to get people this year and it's sending me into a tailspin. Ideas?!?

(5) My sister's baby shower is next weekend! I have everything all ready, but need to start making things and getting it all together.  Sunday. That's my plan. Well, that and progress reports. (Can you believe its already 1/2 way through the quarter?)

(6) My friend Rachel nominated me for the "Blog on Fire Award". Thanks girl! She is another first grade teacher with lots of fun ideas for teaching and the home. Check out her blog if you haven't! :)
(Stole this pic from her blog... hope she doesn't mind!)
(7) Lily, my Malti-Shit, is really living up to her name lately.  She has started to pooping in the house, in her kennel, chewing Reagan's toys and crayons, and other weird things.  She has never done this before. Any tips? Is she going through some sort of dog pouting? I seriously am at wits end. I would love your ideas!
Have a great weekend! XXOO!

Can't wait to see the Christmas card. I love the idea of pics throughout the year. We haven't done a card yet, guess we have to wait for the ring for that one ;)

As for Christmas gifts I'm going light this year. We'll be in Hawaii with family right after Christmas, so all the dollars are going there this year.
