Staying with Amanda on this one! Thinking out loud time..XMAS EDITION!
1. Candy canes – As a kid I was never a candy cane fan. I could only take so much of the peppermint flavor…but NOW they come in such awesome varieties. Sweet Tarts, Cinnabon, Lifesavers…..YES! I gave out some delicious Jelly Belly Candy Cane to my advisees and they were super excited.
2. Holiday Parties – Tis the season for parties! I love that the holidays give people a reason to stop and celebrate. Whether it’ s fancy or just an excuse to wear a Christmas sweater (party coming this weekend…woohoo), Take some time to celebrate. I know that my fellow teachers and I need a moment when we can just relax and enjoy! Also, as phys ed teachers it’s nice to put some normal clothes on! 🙂
3. Teacher gifts – speaking of teaching. Sometimes my family and friends ask me what to get their teachers for the holidays. Well I can’t speak for all teachers but I can tell you what’s always a hit with me! I think no teacher is complete without a cup of caffeine in their hands, so a SMALL gift card to your local coffee shop is always a win! Oh and of course, homemade treats! Dark Chocolate Peppermint Bark. This box is soo cute.
4. Favorite Christmas Movies – This questions gets asked often and mine is always the same! A Muppets Christmas Carol. Hands Down. I’m thinking about it because, shockingly, I haven’t watched it yet this year. This movie is the cutest version of A Christmas Carol and always puts me in a good mood. The perfect mix of silly, heart warming, holiday fun. If you haven’t seen it, PLEASE sit down this weekend, pop some popcorn and fall in love with the muppets (if you’re not already in love with them like I am!!).
5. Christmas Hats = Love
HAVE A BEAUTIFUL THURSDAY
Stay Strong 🙂
