High Five for Friday

Hey everybody!  Today's High Five for Friday is going to be short and sweet.  We are in the middle of our annual Teach A Thon, aka students take a ton of lessons and all times of the day.  So essentially my goal is just to survive until Saturday evening!  Today I'm sharing 5 things I love about this time of year.


1.  Making Christmas cookies.  Every year a group of us girls gets together and spend all day drinking mimosas and baking dozens and dozens of cookies, I look forward to it every year!



2.  Watching Love Actually.  I know it's not a traditional holiday movie, but it is my favorite feel good movie that you have to watch this time of year!



3.  Putting up and decorating my tree, because I love transforming my home into winter wonderland.



4.  Picking out the perfect presents for everyone on my list.  I love getting people things that they'll really like and enjoy, things they wouldn't typically get themselves.

5. Drinking hot chocolate out of Holiday mugs, because really it makes the hot chocolate taste better.

Do you love this time of year too?  What do you love most?  Happy weekend, see you next week!
