The only things different were I wore black tights and my hair was down with a slight curl.
I love this dress.  It is so comfortable.

december classroom

Holiday time is in full swing in Room 73.
December is a crazy month.
But I love it.


Santa's Stuck is one of my favorite Christmas books.
I loved when I found this idea on Cara's The First Grade Parade blog.
And so did the kiddos.


We made these darling elves from Teacher Bits and Bobs.
Such a great find!

I remembered to bring out my holiday word bank.  I have one for each holiday/season, but I always forget about them.  I made them my first year of teaching.  They are very helpful for the students.
The colored grid was my classroom reward chart.  I have the Crayola Magic Markers.  I use the "invisible" marker to draw 6 stars.  Once all are found, we vote on a class party.  PJ day is next Monday! 
 And this made me tear up.  Too sweet.
Our class Christmas program is on Friday.  The kids are too cute.

Thursday.
cardigan: Anthro Prairie Rose (Apr. '10)
skirt: Anthro (Dec. '11--this was a popback score!  I thought I had missed out on it a couple months ago when it took a 2nd cut.  Even though it's a couple sizes larger than I would've originally liked, I was tickled pink to see it popback!  It has an elastic waistband, so the size wasn't too big.)
boots: Target (Aug. '10)

{When I looked at this picture after I took it, I decided to untuck the cardigan.  It looked much better.}

My kids have been SO GOOD these last two days!  Woohoo!!  I do love that I get to really celebrate the holidays with my students--too fun!

Wednesday.
scarf: H&M (Nov. '11)
top: TJ Maxx (Sept. '11)
black skinnies: Old Navy (Nov. '11--yep, I just wore these the other day!)
boots: Anthro (Apr. '11)

I'm funny about this blog.  I don't mind if random people find and look it.  But the second someone I know finds it, I instantly turn red and am very embarrassed.  {I'm so weird.}  I don't proclaim to be a fashionista.  In fact, I look at countless others and think, "Oh, I love that blouse!...Her hair looks fabulous!...I wish my outfits looked as put together as hers."  
This blog all started because my best college friend and roommate, Brittney {who lives in Ohio with her hubby and new little baby girl}, called me up and told me that she missed seeing my outfits in the mornings.  I told her that was funny because she and I nearly have the same items in our closets.  Against my will, she created this blog and email.  Britt bugged me about for 4 months before I finally posted an outfit to please her.  And to be honest, I still just post with her in mind.  {Along with my other best friend, Katie, who lives in DC with her hubby.}  So anyway, that's how this whole shebang started.

I'm so thankful for my job, even though I get frustrated with it at times.  Today, one of my little boys came up to me with alligator-sized tears welling up in his eyes.  I asked him what was wrong.  He asked me if I was going to give him back his special pencil that I had used 2 minutes ago to initial another student's behavior contract.  I'm sorry, but I couldn't hold back my chuckling.  I told him the other kid was going to be back soon and would return the pencil and that everything would be ok.  Such a sensitive and tender-hearted little boy.  I love my job!
