Holly Bloggy Thank You!

I found my camera!!! Moving stinks...booooo. But, finding my camera means I can finally share a few pictures with you and properly thank Meghan from Little Girl in the Big World for the amazing gifts I received in my Holly Bloggy gift box! Turns out Meghan was Holly Bloggy Christmas pal and she sent me a package with tons of my favorite things (Mr. Sketch markers, Sharpies, scrapbooking paper, post-it notes and the Swedish Fish that I ate before I took the picture)! Thank you, Meghan! I love my Holly Bloggy surprises! You rock!

I also found a picture of this ornament that my daughter made at school this year. It is so beautiful and the picture does not show it's true beauty...but I decided to include it in case anyone wants to file pin the idea away for next year. Her school picture was photocopied on an overhead transparency (luckily I have a stash of those even though I did a happy dance when they removed my dusty old projector from my space). She cut around her picture and put the picture and some sequins and glitter into a glass bulb ornament with a pretty ribbon tied onto to finish it off. The glitter and her picture just floated around in there and sparkled on our Christmas tree. So pretty!

I've been working on organizing a Fun Fitness Challenge for my staff. We are going to start it on Monday (when we return to school) and it will last until the day before our spring break. Everyone who enters pays $10 and you earn points for every 15 minutes of exercise. For example, walking is 1 pt for 15 minutes and running is 3 pts. for 15 min. There is a whole point system. The person with the most points at the end of the challenge wins the money. My husband is coordinating one for his staff as well. All that exercise has to be good for me, right? The truth is that I do much better when something is a "challenge".

Happy Saturday!
