Super Saturday - Currently

Okay, I know I'm posting twice, but the currently this month is really cute!  Farley had this idea where you do a RAK (Random Act of Kindness).  It has to be something you've never done that you want to do for someone this year.



Remember her Rule of 3 - once you post make comments on at least 3 other blogs.

Also, if you link up, put the abbreviation for your state in the title this time.  She's seeing which state will have the most link ups :)  It should be fun :)


Alright, usually I don't add anything outside of the picture, but I figured I would this time.

Listening - I swear outside of A Christmas Story, Elf is the funniest movie.  I watch it over and over.  It was one of the first movies I saw with my husband (before we were even dating) and the first Christmas gift he gave me was the soundtrack.  Needless to say, Elf will always hold a sweet place in my heart.

Loving - Christmas has been my favorite time of year since I was a little girl.  Growing up, my favorite gift was the big box of Crayola crayons.  Even now, I love the smell of a new box of Crayolas.  I think everyone should experience that.  I also love the traditions, surprising people I love, and remembering why we have Christmas.  For me, it really isn't about all of the gifts.  It's about the Jesus being born, the giving, and making someone smile. 

Thinking - My adopted niece Morgan is a freshman in college and joined a sorority.  Well, painting paddles is apparently important in sororities.  I did her first one and now she needs another one for her big brother.  I've known about it for two weeks, but yep, I've procrastinated and now I am going to get up at 5:30 or 6:00.  I should be able to have it ready to give to her by 9:00 :)  Oh, the things I do to myself.

Wanting - I truly hate cleaning.  I'm not sure if it's because my classroom is perfect or if it's because I'm right brained (I'm left-handed), but when it comes to cleaning it's like a switch is turned off.  I know that's sad, but it is one of my biggest weaknesses.  By the way, I'm not a hoarder - not even close... just messier than I should be.

Needing - I've done stockings for my class every year for 11 years.  I like them to match which means I will be hitting up The Dollar Store tomorrow.  Yes, I know it makes my kids a little more excitable, but I promise it is so worth it.  I also want to do homemade ornaments for the parent Christmas gifts this year, so I need to hit up either Walmart or Michaels.  

RAK - My pastor and his family go to Waffle House on Christmas Eve every year and tip the waitress $100.  I have always thought that is really neat.  My husband and I talked about it and we want to do that this year.  I've been taking 10% of my TPT money every quarter and doing something special with it, so I think I may jump ahead this quarter and give it to a random waiter/waitress.

Anyway, there you go.  Now, go over to Farley's page.  I think every month I've read at least 20 of the Currently pages.  It's neat how alike and different we all are.

  3. I found you through the link-up! Please please please let me know if the snapping thing works. I will totally snap both hands over and over!

    I love your RAK. Please let us know how it works out.

    1. Oh, if it worked, I could create a "Snapper" instead of the "Clap on, clap off". I will definitely let you know how it turns out :) I got extra ornaments, so now I'm thinking about putting it in an ornament and leaving it on the table. I also saw one today on Pinterest where you write a note and leave $1 for someone to get a candy bar. It was pretty cute, too :)

  4. I love Elf! It cracks me up when he eats the cotton balls at the doctor's office! The whole movie is hilarious but sweet, too. Please show us the stockings once you're done. What do you will them with?


    Have a lovely Sunday!

    1. I always like the part where they think someone is trying to make them look bad. I also love when he argues that they sing in the North Pole... that movie makes me laugh non-stop. I don't actually make the stockings. I just go buy them at The Dollar Store. Then, I will send a note home next week to my parents telling them what I need for the stockings. Later this week, I am going to have some other crafts on here that we are making. I'll definitely be posting pictures of those :)
