Few of My Favorite Things: Christmas Wishlist

The countdown to Christmas has definitely begun and it is not even Thanksgiving yet! This is a magical time of year so I am okay with celebrating as long as possible. I have even talked Joe into putting up our Christmas tree this weekend. I'm already dreaming of putting up the tree and enjoying some spiked apple cider. Yum!

I am excited to be linking up for These Are a Few of My Favorite Things and share my ultimate Christmas wishlist. I always like to include in my lists things I would not typically buy for myself. Tht is why it is called a wishlist right? I love everything on this list and would be thrilled to find one of these pretties wrapped under the Christmas tree!

Friday Five

It's time to wrap up another work week. I'm celebrating with a 6am Pure Barre class and a peppermint mocha. Yes, it has already happened I'm addicted to Pure Barre! I also want to make sure I get my moneys worth  of the unlimited classes. Hope all of your Friday has started on a good note as well. Let's get this Friday Five started!

{One} Reading.  I finished The Secret History a few weeks back and can't stop thinking about it. The book starts out with a murder and then backtracks several years and eventually explains the events of the murder. It is filled with Ancient Greek references and is set on a college campus. I you are enjoying How to Get Away With Murder I truly think you will love this book!


{Two} Drinking.  Right around this time is when seasonal everything starts to appear on the shelves. I just love the underdog of seasonal flavor- Cranberry! I absolutely love fresh cranberries and cranberry flavored treats. I drink a soda every now and then with dinner. I always make sure I have already drank 70 oz of water before enjoying a soda.  Anyway, I was happy to see cranberry flavored drinks already hitting the shelves! Cranberry Ginger Ale! Oh it is delicious. I am already scheming ways to incorporate it into some holiday adult beverages!


{Three} Wishlist Worthy. I am so excited to share my ultimate Christmas wishlist with you guys next week. I'll be linking up with the lovely Elise, April, Katie and Zelle. I hope you join in the fun as well!!



{Four} Currently Loving. I stumbled upon the website forever twenty somethings this week and can't get enough! I love the writers honesty and boldness. Everything I have read so far honestly rings true with my twenty-something self. I was laughing out loud at this post on group fitness classes. We all know time slows down on a treadmill. 

{Five} Coming Up.  This weekend I am heading up to Greensboro for a weekend conference. Honestly, I have no idea what to expect so it should be interesting. Meals and accommodations are included which always makes me a bit nervous since I am a particular eater. Anyone else like this? A plus is that I get the chance to catch up with friends while I am there!

My Job

This post is a little out of the ordinary for me. One of my goals for this little blog is to share more personal stories about myself instead of being a vague overview of each week. As a way to get more personal with you my readers I am going to share a little more about what I do for work!  I am a School Psychologist at an Elementary School. Since this week is School Psychology Awareness Week I thought it would be a perfect time to share. 



I enjoy the chance to educate others about how I can support all students in school not just students in special education.  When I decided to go to graduate school, most of my friends have never heard of a school psychologist or just thought I was going to be in a counselor type role. That is not the case!


As a school psychologist I am able to that support students and teachers. I have expertise in mental health, learning, and behavior which allows me to help children and youth succeed academically, socially, behaviorally, and emotionally. School Psychologist provide direct support and interventions to students, such as learning assessments, academic and behavioral interventions, counseling, and social skills training. We also consult with teachers, families, and other educators to improve support strategies and school-wide practices and policies. Can you tell I never get bored?

This year I have the benefit of being able to serve only one school. This has provided me the opportunity to get to know students on a more personal level and build relationships. I work closely with our school counselors, EC teachers and speech pathologists to provide support for students and staff.

I'd love to hear about what you do!
