Second Grade Nest: Catching Up for November!

Catching Up for November!

What an insane month October was.
Conferences, report cards, celebration of learning, Halloween, field trips. AHHHH!! 
I feel like I can breathe again, but only for a little bit. It'll be crazy again very soon.

Just wanted to post a random and quick post! 

I've never missed a Currently since I started blogging. I'm VERY late to the party (3 days late), but I just couldn't skip it! 

I have no shame. I am in love with Christmas time. Halloween is over, it's Christmas mode for me. Yes, I love and appreciate Thanksgiving very much. It's just a part of my Christmas celebration! 
And I love Michael Buble, so his Pandora station relaxes me. 

Today, my team and I went to Panera to work on report cards. Afterwards, we went shopping! 
I got lots of new jewelry from Charming Charlies and lots of new Wallflower scents from Bath and Body Works! I got... Vanilla Snowflake, Winter, Tis the Season, Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin, Leaves, and Pumpkin Apple. (Okay, so maybe I'm not ready to completely give up pumpkin season). 

I just made a complete list of my blogging dates.
If I make the list with the topic to blog about- I'll be much more conscious of actually being a good blogger! I haven't been the best!! 

To organize!! I'm craving it right now. 
It's a slow process, but this week will be my organizing week!

A massage! I gave myself a massage for my birthday in July and I was so happy that month! I think I really need another one. 

A Yummy Pin:
Skinny Turkey Ranch Club Wrap. For lunches...I eat this 5 days a week!!!
I need to make this! It was a tough choice to pick just one yummy pin to share from my 'What's for Dinner?' board

So many freebies!!
Check out this phenomenal free FB hop!
All you have to do is find this image at the top of my FB, click like, grab the freebie, then hop on to the next Facebook! 

So far, my collaborative blog that I share with 20 other fabulous girls, we have only done group posts and group activities. The month of November is our first month to do solo posts! 
I started our solo posts off! 


  1. October knocked me on my butt too :( I'll have to check out Bath and Body. I swear, their marketing people are geniuses. I walk in there and want to buy everything!!! I try to stay away! I am headed over to your FB hop now!

  2. Add me to the list of bloggers whose butts were kicked in October! I'm glad I'm not the only one running late for the party! Thanks for the links to the FB hop!

  3. Report cards and conferences in one month is always hard. It sounds like you have an awesome team though! Team and lunch at Panera sounds like an ideal date.
    I made an appointment for a massage, I think I pulled a muscle..painful :(
    Hope November is an easier month for ya' :)

  4. I love that you and your team got together to do report cards and then relax. I wish our teams were more cohesive like that (well, some). Hope you can find time to get organized! I have conferences tomorrow from 12-7, so I'm hoping to get my house together in the morning while my hubby and son are out.

  5. I love that you are organizing your blog post list! I so need to do that! Maybe that would help me stay on top of things! :) I have 3 little bitties 2 &1/2 and under and by the end of the day I can't seem to remember what was on my mental to do list!!! Maybe if I put it on paper....:)

  6. October did me in too. It seemed to pass so quickly though. I LOVE Christmas. I want to start decorating right now! I think every teacher deserves a massage at least once a week right?!?! Thanks for the freebies!
