Waiting on the UPS Man

My car is loaded with presents, clothes, dog food, etc. ready to see family. I however have been waiting for our last Christmas package to be delivered today. No big deal. I have had plenty of time to rest, watch almost an entire season of Friends, clean, and read blogs. Sounds like a good day to me! I do wish it would get here soon though. I created a wish list while I have been waiting. I found these adorable mugs and bowls on the West Elm website!! I know I don't need anymore mugs, but they are calling my name!!!
And how adorable are these owl measuring cups?!?!
And the napkins, towels, and oven mits?! Love love love!
Oh and I am also in love with Jonathan's new iPad! It is so much more fun to read blogs on it!
Oh yay UPS literally just drove up!!!!!!!!

Have a Merry Christmas!


I have 2 Whole Weeks off???

One of the great things about being a teacher is time off! So what have I been doing during my time off? Well sleeping in for sure! I have really enjoyed not waking up to an alarm and sleeping in as long as I want! Here are some other things I have been doing:

Since we are going to be out of town Christmas day, Jonathan and I celebrated our Christmas yesterday.
We enjoyed a fake fire (thank you Netflix) and Christmas music
Tucker has officially destroyed two of his new toys...it only took one day! This is why I buy them at Dollar Tree :)

I have enjoyed lots of hot chocolate and candy canes
I did a little crafting and made something for my front door. I never have anything to put on my door for winter but now I do!
Jonathan got me a new Kitchenaid stand mixer for Christmas!
Soooo, I had to do some baking! I made some yummy peanut butter chocolate chip cookies! I also made some cupcakes but they were terrible! Too embarrassed to even post about!
Our poor tree lights went out. All but one strand :(
I made a chalkboard grocery list for my refrigerator
I've also been going to Zumba! If you haven't tried Zumba, you should! It is one workout I never want to miss!!

Just think....it's only Wednesday!!


Quick and Easy Recipe for the Holiday Season

If you are needing a quick and easy dessert for the holiday season, this is a great choice!! It is super easy, inexpensive, and quick! I had some girls over last night to watch Christmas movies and this is what I served. All you need is crescent rolls, peanut butter, chocolate chips, and marshmallows. Bake at 375 degrees for about 8-10 minutes! So yummy!!

Thank you Pinterest for your yummy recipes!
