Five on Friday/Randoms

Image
Here are some Friday Faves from the last while. I will try to keep them short and brief :)

1) Shoes
I bought some shoes from Value Village a couple of weeks ago, and I really like them. Well, I love one pair. The other pair? Not so much! I wore them to my work Christmas party, and it did not go well! At least they were pretty! I might sell them, or I might keep them for when I need a fun pair of shoes. I really love the other pair, though!
               I love these boots! These shoes below? Not so much! But don't they look pretty?

2) Christmas (plans, movies, parties, decorating, baking, etc)
I actually decorated our tree a couple of weeks ago! We also bought some more ornaments today, so we put some of those on the tree. I went to another party that we girls had. 3 of us were missing, but we four had fun. I had fun at our work Christmas party last wknd. There was fun, food, laughter, and spitting crickets (dude, it's a thing!). The party was over by 8:30. #christianspartyha…

Christmas Has Arrived at the W House!!

Image
I posted here a few weeks ago about on how blah I felt about Christmas, or at least on how I felt about decorating. Well, a couple of weeks ago, I decided to do some decorating in our bedroom, and last week (?), I ended up decorating the tree! Truth be told, it has been sitting up (with no decorations) all year. If it had been put away, I might not have bothered to put it up, but since half of the job was done, I decided to just go ahead and do it. I am glad that I did. Even though I don't spend a lot of time in the living room, I DO get to enjoy it as I am passing by....and Anker and I even had brunch in front of it last Sunday! I started, and then Anker helped me a bit. He rearranged it a bit when I went to work on Monday, and we got some new decorations from Michael's yesterday (60% off glass ornaments? Yes, please!), so we put a few more on. Anyway.....we don't have a theme this year, although I am thinking that next year, we might do white lights on the tree. We have …

Teacher/CEA/EA/SEA Gifts

Image
Oh my goodness! I am sooooo far behind in my blog posts! I am alive, and I am doing well, I promise. I hope you the start of the Christmas season is going well for you. Ours is going well....it seems that I have been really busy, hanging out with friends, with work, etc. Last weekend was a SUPER chill weekend, which I needed! Even this last week I was home for 3 out of 5 nights :) This last week, we did Secret Santa gifts, and we all had fun giving and getting gifts :) Anyway, I wanted to do a quick post on what Teacher/CEA/EA/SEA gifts. I did one on my IG story, but I wanted to do one here. And no, this is not sponsored in any way...these are just some of my suggestions that I think are great for the educators in your life!

1) Mugs

I know some people don't like them, but I LOVE mugs...the cooler the better!!!

2) Gift Cards

Pretty much to anywhere works for me. I love me a Starbucks, or Tim Horton's GC...or to a restaurant is a great idea, as well.

3) School//Craft/Office Supp…

Parties, (The) Plague, (My) Peepers, and Prep

Image
So, I am going to blog about last weekend, b/c it was kind of fun, and eventful. Plus it was a 4 day weekend! I love my job, but if I could work 3 or even 4 days, that would fit me perfectly. Or, maybe I would be bored....who knows!

So, last wknd (Nov 30th-4) was really busy, but fun. I had hoped to spend a lot of watching movies, blogging, journalling, Christmas decorating, or reading, but I didn't get a whole lot of that done. I was super busy, though, which was good.

Thursday (29th): After work, I came home (probably after the library). We had supper (or something), and I relaxed for a bit. Then I went out and did some respite for an hour. I came back and hung out for the rest of the evening.

Friday (30th): Pay Day!!! I just hung out and relaxed in the morning. Then, I went to the eye doctor, and my eyesight hasn't changed in a year. Yay! I ran some errands (I think?) afterwards. I came home, and we had supper (probably). I probably bought something for us to have for suppe…

Thanksgiving 2018

Image
Well, it is nearly Christmas, and I am just now writing about Thanksgiving! Meh, what can you do? Ha! I hope I can remember what we all did, as it was so long ago! As I have said before, Canada has Thanksgiving in October, and it is the first wknd of the month. This month, it fell on October 8th. The weekend I will be talking about is from the 4th (or, the evening of the 3rd), to the 8th.

Our school had a 5 day wknd, which was really nice! We EAs had our pro-D day on Thursday, which was a great day. We learned lots, had some laughs, and enjoyed each other. I really cannot remember what I did on the evening of the 4th. I probably went to the library, ran a few errands, and started to get ready to go. Friday, Anker had a doctor's appointment in the morning, and I had errands to run. I think I was busy for most of the day, and we left around 3 or 4. We got to the ranch, and I am assuming we had dinner. Ha! I am reaching FAR in my brain (and on IG!) to remember what we all did, and wh…

What I am Watching and Reading

Image
This is/was one of the posts that have been in my drafts waiting to written and posted. I haven't seemed to want to blog much lately. Anyway...I am alive, and doing well (mostly). Our school had a 4 day wknd this last wknd, and we staff had a 3 days wknd. We have had our first skiff of snow (which has now melted), but it is pretty cold :)

I have seen people do a "What I am watching and / or Reading Post", so I thought that I would post one similar. First off..watching :

I rarely watch shows "live". I 99% of the time watch them on the PVR. I am not going to include Christmas Specials, or award shows...b/c those are pretty much a given..though I haven't actually watched an award show in ages. I think I only watched a few Christmas specials last year. I am not going to include other random shows (reruns like Frasier, or Murder, She Wrote), or shows that I sometimes watch on HGTV, FoodNetwork, W Network, or TLC (though I guess I could), as I watch them on and o…

The BunHat

Image
A friend of mine asked Anker to make her a bun-hat. I had never heard of it before. Well, we liked it up, and he was able to knit her one. Then, he knit me one. I love it! I haven't had a chance to wear it much, thanks to the lovely weather that we have been having, but I have it all ready to go!
