It has been really fun for me to read everyone's wish lists for Christmas over at 2nd Grade Shenanigans...I like receiving gifts but I most definitely LOVE giving gifts more. My husband is going to get alot of gifts with a homemade touch this year. I hope he likes his gifts! Here's what I have on my wish list for Christmas...
Shabby Apple dress to die for?! I love how glamorous it is! I have been wanting some black pumps for a while and the only way black pumps get better is lace. These Ann Taylor Abbey pumps are perfect.
Crystal Bullet Necklaces are for me. I couldn't even begin to pick which one because they are all gorgeous!
Shark Steam Mop might make it easier for me though. I don't have any bread pans. I don't know how I've lived without them this long. Do you watch Food Network? I love how the chefs on there have salt and pepper at the ready to sprinkle so gracefully in their dish. I could feel like a REAL chef!
What's on your wish list? Go over to 2nd Grade Shenanigans and share it with us! I can't wait to read it. Apple on!

alot like Christmas! Don't you love decorating for Christmas?! This is a little peek into how I decorate around here...
I haven't done a post about Sunday School in a while so I thought I'd do a quick one and I also have a freebie for you at the end...another Colorful Trees!
-Bee idea found here.
-Compasses from Dollar Tree.
-Apples made out of vanilla and chocolate flavored candy coating.
I made the apple with this silicone ice cube mold that I bought at Target sometime last year. It was apples...so I had to have it! Also I was unable to print the handout to go with the apples because my printer ran out of ink...boo! It has to do with becoming a better teacher of the gospel...the youth (ages 12 to 18) are sometimes expected to teach lessons and when they go on missions for the church. I will be sure to post it under the Sunday School tab when I am able to print it.
Thanks for sticking with me...here's your freebie!

YAY! It's December I'm linking up with Farley over at Oh' Boy 4th Grade for this month's Currently!
Listening- My dad always, always, always, listens to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. While I use to think that was lame I am loving their holiday station on Pandora.
Loving- This month is busy! We have church, family and friend Christmas parties to go to. Now if I can only get my husband on board with going all over the place this month.
Thinking- I am really excited for the Cyber Monday and Tuesday sale...I'll show you the prodcuts that you can buy from my store later in this post. I am wondering what I should buy. I don't need anything for a classroom since I currectly do not have one but maybe I could snag up some adorable fonts and clip art to make more products for you!
Wanting- Hubster and I went to look at trees yesterday but didn't select one yet. I got out a couple of decorations and wrapped a few presents but can't wait to get a tree tomorrow!
Needing- I set a goal to have all boxes unpacked from our move five months ago by the new year but I feeling some serious lack of motivation because they are boxes of files and paperwork. Ugh!
Favorite Tradition- This was hard to pick because I actually just love every minute of the holiday season. The white elephant gift exchange is something my husband's family does and the whole family participates. We have bought some funny and awful gifts for it...such as...the game where the dog poops (picture found here) and spam with a side of gum and a butt face towel (picture found here). It is just too much fun!
Who's ready for the big cyber sale!?!?!
I am so excited to be participating in my first teachers pay teachers sale.
I am offering 20% off of these products Monday AND Tuesday.

Happy shopping to you and apple on!

Did you survive Black Friday??? I did...I spent time with my family today and didn't do a lick of shopping! How was I supposed to walk around with all that food in my belly?!? Speaking of food...I know my family has dishes that are the comebacks...the staples...the traditions...the expected whenever we get together. Here's my favorite that I learned when I took a cooking class back in 2006. I don't know the source and I can't find the original recipe...so whoever, wherever made this...my family LOVES this!
Green Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing
equal parts spinach & romain
thinly sliced red onion
finely grated swiss cheese
for the candied almonds:
2-3 Tbs. sugar
small bag slivered almonds
Sprinkle sugar in frying pan over medium heat. When sugar starts to melt, stir in almonds. Keep stirring until sugar is all melted and almonds are evenly coated and slightly browned. Empty almonds onto plate to cool. When cool break apart into pieces and sprinkle onto salad.
for the poppy seed dressing:
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
4 Tbs. sugar
3 Tbs. vinegar
1 tsp. poppy seeds
1/4 cup salad oil or olive oil
1/4 tsp. dry mustard
1/4 tsp. grated onion
Mix together then toss with salad ingredients.Wait until serving time to pour dressing onto salad or greens will wilt. Add almonds last so they will stay crunchy.
And just in case you didn't get enough shopping in you can participate in my favorite kind of shopping...ONLINE shopping!!! Check out my TPT store for cyber Monday and Tuesday and enjoy 20% off on the products pictured below!
