It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like...

...I won't say it. I know there are a lot of people out there (my husband included) who get all crabby when I start getting excited about Christmas before Thanksgiving.

Anyway, I woke up to a lovely layer of snow on the ground this morning, and I'm sitting here with my cereal watching more little flakes fall from the sky. Before this post becomes all about snow, let's get to Happies and Crappies, shall we?

-We don't have a not only is there snow on the ground, it's also on my car. Hooray for brushing and scraping....

-I woke up super early this morning. This should probably be a happy, but I could not go back to sleep for the life of me.

-HALF-DAY FRIDAY!!! This has happened the last two weeks in a row, and it is wonderful. The rest of the week drags on pretty slowly but knowing this is the light at the end of the tunnel makes it allll worth it.

-Advent by Candlelight is this weekend! I'm really excited. It's always a really special night and I can't wait to play hostess. :-)

-Is it cheating to write about snow in both categories? There's something about the first real snowfall that's just exciting.

I guess this post was really all about snow anyway. Sorry. Excuse me while I go make snow angels. :)

Happy Happy Happy

I really like this linkup. Here are your happies and crappies for this week. Enjoy!

 The Vintage Modern Wife & Brunch with Amber: Happies and Crappies Link Up

-Tossed my garbage in the dumpster outside of work and suddenly realized I didn't have my keys with me anymore...
-I haven't been to the gym all week. And it feels awful.
-Cough/cold/snot season is starting to creep into my classroom. I don't want it!! 
-My nails are so freaking chipped right now, and I have no motivation to repaint them.

-When I went inside to get a flashlight, preparing to dumpster-dive for my keys, I saw them on the counter (see: Crappies)
-Getting together with friends on Friday and Saturday night. Let the good times roll.
-I got my newsletter written and next week's lesson plan turned in early. That never happens!
 -Half day on a Friday. Hah. Lay. Lew. Yah.

I'd love to hear your lists!

Currently I am...crocheting like a madwoman. Something about cold weather makes crocheting even more appealing. I'm trying a new hat pattern. I've taken it apart at least thrice. Crocheting in the round gets me every time.

Watching: The Office. I'm not sure how we've watched How I Met Your Mother 80,000 times but have not re-watched The Office. Speaking of HIMYM, is anyone else a little bit bored of this season? I am. I get it, but it's getting kind of old. Anybody else watch Biggest Loser? I was pretty disappointed by the results last week...and I think some of the challenges have been pretty ridiculous. Anyway, The Office is great. Watch it.

Wearing: PJ pants pretty much happen as soon as I walk in the door at night. So there's that. Also the sweater I wore to work, striped socks, and my fuzzy slippers.

Drinking: Right now, water. But I have a new-found obsession with fountain Dr. Pepper. In a foam cup, not plastic. Half ice. Can't stop, won't stop.

Excited for: Advent by Candlelight at our church..I'm hosting a table...should be fun! Also, the holidays. I seriously can't wait for a few days off to spend with our families!

Other news: Jethro caught a mouse this weekend. We were sitting in the living room before church and he trotted in and dropped it in front of us. It took a few minutes to realize it was a real mouse. I didn't freak out as much as I thought I would. That does not mean I'm looking forward to it happening again. Thanks, Jethro.
