Friday Faves!

Friday, December 14, 2018

Happy Friday!  It's definitely happy because it's my last Friday to work of the semester!  My last day is next Thursday and that can't get here fast enough!!

Tuesday our entire school filmed a music video!  It was so fun and I can't wait to see the final product.  We had to wear something Christmasey--red and green or ugly sweaters and I went the ugly sweater route.

Except that my students didn't understand that it was an ugly sweater.  I had to explain that I don't like cats which made it an ugly Christmas sweater.  #7thgrade

My mom's birthday was Tuesday, so that night I changed out of my ugly sweater and put on my FAVORITE sweater!!!  I wish I had another one of these because it's the best sweater ever!!  I bought it when it went on sale for 40% off for maybe 4-5 days.  I would have bought two if I would have had another gift card because, you know, saving for an adoption haha!!  I'll buy another one next year 😜  Also, I'm wearing my "namesake" jean and they are on sale!  I'm a self-admitted jean snob and usually don't wear cheap jeans, but I like these!

She makes 59 look good!!!  And she's also really embarrassed in this picture because she had no idea they were going to put that hat on her!

Best picture Dustin got of me 🙈  
I've got to work with him on his photography skills.

Rachel and I met up for coffee Wednesday afternoon after she worked PRN for hospice and I get done with school.  LOVE coffee dates with my sister!!

My small group got together Wednesday night for our FAVORITE Things Christmas party!!  We ate good, had Emily's famous cheesecake, and each left with 4 presents--it's such a fun tradition we've started that I'm always looking forward to each Christmas season!

Yesterday was my dad's 65th birthday so we celebrated at my house!!  I cooked supper and Rachel had the cake made to look like his new Medicare card--yay for retirement!!!  We had a fun time celebrating dad!  He's excited about 65--retirement and his first grand baby!!!

And just for fun, Tuesday morning lots of school systems (except ours) delayed for the freezing temps and ice on the roads (remember, the South isn't used to this!!!).  We had a freezing fog and I snapped this as I was headed to school and Dustin was taking out the trash.  No filter--it's really gray out there haha!  And Dustin might have to start his own fashion blog 😜
