The worst part of traveling, in my opinion, is the laundry you have to do when you come home. It always seems like I manage to accumulate so much more laundry when I am away! Oh well, the trip home for Thanksgiving was definitely worth it, regardless of the amount of laundry I have to do now!
Now that I live in a different state, I don't get to see my family very often. Fortunately, I was able to travel home for the holiday this past week. We had a great time, and I enjoyed plenty of home cooking. (Probably more than I should have!) I even got to see my sister try on wedding dresses. We squeezed a lot of quality family time into the short break!
It is hard to shift gears from vacation back to school, but I am working on it. I am trying to think of some good winter themed activities to make these few weeks before Christmas fun. Any suggestions are welcome!
I am looking forward to Cyber Monday, both on Teachers Pay Teachers and for everything else. I am hoping I score some great deals. Hopefully I finish the rest of my Christmas shopping tomorrow, I am already pretty close!
I usually like to make something for my coworkers, and by make, I really mean bake. I have been scouring Pinterest and have a couple of possibilities. If you have any good ideas, please share!
One of my absolute favorite things about the holidays is my mom's chocolate gingerbread cookies. They are delicious. No other cookie can compare. I took them to school once, and everyone loved them. I love gingerbread to begin with, but adding the chocolate takes it to the next level!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I am looking forward to seeing what everyone is up to for the wonderful month of December!
