I Should've Worn My Elastic Waistband Pants

There... I said it... I should've worn my elastic waistband pants to dinner yesterday.  I maybe ate too much.... twice.  I love carbs...and they love me!  I hope that y'all had a very Merry Christmas.  I enjoyed the day with my peeps and watching them squeal with delight as they opened their gifts.  I have been collecting their presents since September... so I was pumped to watch them all be opened in like 2 minutes! They are efficient... what can I say? :)
My kiddos are off playing with their new tech devices and I am starting to think about taking Christmas stuff down.  I know it seems soon, but we go back to school on the 6th and I don't want the decorations looming over my head...  I also thought that the 2 days of planning were going to be so awesome.  I was picturing myself chillin' in my classroom... organizing, writing lesson plans, cleaning, getting materials together, etc.  Well, we got an itinerary in an email and it looks like I'm going to have approximately 1 hour to myself.  Sigh.

Ok... enough about me... how was your Christmas?  Do you leave all your decorations up for awhile... or do you go ahead and start dismantling early?  When do you go back to school?    What was your favorite Christmas present that you received OR gave?

If you're in a shopping mood... my peeps and I from over at the Primary Chalkboard are all doing a sale.  You can visit any of our TpT shops and receive 20% off... starting today and running through the 29th.  I am shopping for 100th day things, reading comprehension packs, persuasive writing help, and some seasonal type things... OH... and clip art {always the clip art!}
Well, I'm gonna head out to grab some Starbucks (yesterday was hard w/o my "fix") and see what deals I can find at Hobby Lobby, TJ Maxx and some boutiques here in town!  I will talk to y'all soon!


  1. You and me both...elastic waist bands are like a piece of chocolate cake. Smiles and stop by anytime.

  2. I KNOW that right!! I don't want to eat for a month!! But here I sit eating lunch :) I am trying to be good!

    I just wanted to share with you how I used your Rudoph's Crazy Cousin Act. that I picked up during the big TPT Cyper sale after Thankgsiving. My kids LOVED it!!

    Kickin It Whole Brain In Texas

  3. Well, one of my favorite little ones brought in a treasure for me in a pretty little bag and was jumping our of her skin to give it to me. It was a pretty white candle. I am a HUGE fan of candles, but really only like a few scents - vanilla, cinnamon, and a few others. Anyway, I smelled it and fell in love just as I heard her say, "Isn't it wonderful? It smells just like Christmas!" I had tears in my eyes so this wins as the best present I received this Christmas. :)
