December Currently

December 1st sure came fast didn't it!! Only 2 weeks until Vacation!!  We have some extra time due to furloughs this year.  The district calls them Directed Leave Without Pay-DLWP-I call them Dilwop days.  I guess if I am not getting paid for some days them I will enjoy a longer vacation!

Well with December 1st upon us  Farley from Oh, Boy It's 4th Grade has her December Currently up!!

 
I am so excited to go and see Wicked tonight!!  I bought tickets 6 months ago when I heard it was finally coming to Hawaii!! My oldest daughter and I are going on our own to have some bonding time.  She is a real fan of musicals and I think we will love it!!
 
Unlike many of you I have not done any shopping for Xmas. I am just not that much in the spirit yet because it is still pretty warm here.  Plus we are headed to Phoenix to see my mom, so I plan to do most of my shopping there.  I do need to get gifts for teacher's, parents and colleagues though.
Who has the link up for some great ideas??
 
I could really use a new pair of shoes besides slippers/flip-flops.  We are dressing up to go out tonight and I have nothing suitable for my dress:(  I have a few pairs of heels but they just don't go well. Guess I will have to improvise.
 
Random acts of kindness is a harder one for me, because honestly I'm a pretty nice person, and I try to help out others as much as possible.  I think most teacher's just do this naturally!!  But this year I am going to shock my neighbors with gifts, lol.  Every year the sweet little ladies in this neighborhood come by with huge trays of goodies they have baked!!  I am not kidding, I feel like a heel for never returning the goodies.  So this year I am hoping to return the goodies to those that I always receive from, plus some of our new neighbors down the street.  It will not be fancy, but I am excited to share:)  I also recently made a couple of buttons for giveaways for some bloggy friends and I was so happy to help them out with something I love to do:)
 
I hope December is finding you happy and excited for the holidays!!  Head on over to Farley's and link up!!

  4. Hi Corinna...I am newest follower. I am so jealous that you live in Hawaii...it is one of my favorite places since I got married there in 1994. I have visited several times and each time I go, I don't want to leave. Maybe I could live vicariously through you...which island? I can see how it would be hard to get into the holiday spirit.
