Friday Favorites {12/23/16}

Merry Christmas Eve Eve!ย  It is here folks, it is here! Christmas weekend is here There were so many things that made me smile this week, but here are my top five.


We are on Christmas Break. We kicked off Christmas Break on Thursday, watched Elf and had some popcorn. Amazing!

This is one of our favorite quotes from one of the best Christmas movies- Elf. Who doesnt love a good laugh from the one and only, Will:


On Wednesday, both kiddos had class parties. Guy had a pajama and Polar Express Day.

Maddi had a game day. In third grade, the students create their own games and then parents come to play. Maddi’s game was called Guess, you had to correctly answer each question or fill in the blank and then move to that square. It was so much fun and she did so good! I was able to sneak away from the Polar Express party (THANKS TARA!) to go play! I LOVE teaching at the same school as my kids. Don’t mind the Ninja Turtle sweater, like I said above, it was Pajama Day ๐Ÿ™‚


I got a NEW dishwasher this week! September of 2015 my dishwasher stopped working mid-wash and I have been hand-washing dishes ever since. #livingonabudgetproblemz. Love my hubby for surprising me with this! He said I never complained once, hahahaha! In my head I complained all the time ๐Ÿ™‚


It is Christmas Eve Eve. You can see how we celebrated 2015 Christmas Eve Eve from this post.



The most exciting time of the year is upon us.

The OG Christmas bop.

Would be a great plaque to put up at Christmas.  Glory to God quotes religious peace god bible scripture:

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas, from my family to yours.

    1. I was SUPER excited! I didn’t even know it was coming until we were in the store in the dishwasher section. It was a great surprise. Merry Christmas to you and your family Shelly!

  1. I just love class Christmas parties! With Ian being in Middle school, I only had one this year. It was so SAD ๐Ÿ™
    Merry Christmas to you and your sweet family!
    Oh and your new dishwasher! Love it!!

  2. When Mark & I got married we leased an apartment without a dishwasher. We didn’t even realize it until after we were all moved in & spent 10 minutes looking for it! Ha!! I can totally relate to the joy of having one after washing by hand!! What a great surprise!
    I hope you have a fantastic break & thoroughly enjoy your Christmas!

    1. Guy loves the pajamas! And I don’t think his Christmas Eve ones will win him over more than these have ๐Ÿ™‚ My fingers are crossed that you get a dishwasher soon! It has been so nice. Merry Christmas!

  3. Love that Elf quote! You are an absolute saint for handwashing for so long! I feel like such a brat for complaining about the install of my dishwasher now! Happy holidays!
