T-Mobile Home For The Holidays

What gets you in the holiday spirit? 

Music is always a good way to feel that spirit for me.

Here is a little something to get you in the holiday spirit if you aren't already there!

T-Mobile surprises shoppers at the Chicagoland area's Woodfield Mall with a surprise performance and updated spin on the holiday classic, "(There's No Place Like) Home For The Holidays".

Handprint Christmas Tree

I am making an effort to actually do some of the projects I have been pinning like crazy on Pinterest.  Here is the most recent one I completed.  I used the childrens handprints from my classes to create this Christmas tree.  I have it hanging on the bulletin board outside my classroom.

My Nana

I am so fortunate that the SITS girls offered me an opportunity to do a post for the American Cancer Society campaign.

I want to tell you about my Nana.

My Nana G. was a great lady.  Although not everyone would say that about her....I do!  She loved me more than anything and she let me know it is so many ways.  When we moved away from our family growing up she was the one I missed the most.  She always made me feel special and loved in a way no one else could ever do! She passed away just after my first child was born......there was so much I wanted to know and have her advice about at that time in my life. I still miss her every day!

Please take a moment to watch this video from the American Cancer Society

What's For Dinner! Baked Spaghetti

Here is our dinner tonight Baked Spaghetti (recipe like below).  I baked it a little too long and it go a little browner than I would have like but it still tasted great!  We all enjoyed it.  It makes a ton so we have quite a bit of leftovers.  I served it with a Ceasar Salad.  It was a good meal on a really cold night. 

Here is the recipe for I used for my baked spaghetti Eat at Home-Baked Spaghetti
