December Currently and a Holiday Giveaway!

I love Farley's Currently posts! I haven't done one in a bit, so here's my December Currently!

*Updated note: Apparently I cut off part of my own top line. For listening, it should read: "to my sweet boy playing mario as I'm...updating my blogs, getting ready for church"
My excuse? It's a weekend, and my brain is only operating at 50% ;)

Now to the regularly scheduled post...

The RAK stands for Random Acts of Kindness. Farley was telling us that they had to be RANDOM, not something you do often. I do have a sweet little tradition that's an act of kindness, but it's not random because it's something I do every Saturday. So I had to think of something random that I've never done before.

Well, this holiday season makes all of us feel grateful, don't you think? I'm grateful for a job I truly enjoy, for family I love beyond measure, a Savior (because frankly, I don't stand a chance without Him), and for my blog readers! Each comment leaves a smile on my face, and I appreciate that you take the time out of your busy lives to read the drivel posts I write. I'm thankful for all the times you've shared, tweeted, or pinned my work. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

So as a thank you, I'm going to give an iTunes giftcard (electronically) to one of my followers. I'm going to select randomly! You don't have to comment, tweet, pin, or share anything (but I'd be thrilled if you did). Just sign up to be a follower to win! Thanks to all of my sweet 117 followers I currently have as I write this!

I will draw on Friday, February 7th! Drawing closes at, let's say, midnight EST.

Thank you all!
Merry Christmas!

  2. Hi found you through Farley. I like your RAK. It was hard for me to come up with something random too. Great idea! I am a new follower.

  3. Hi!
    Found you through Farley also. I LOVE what you wrote about being grateful to the Lord, our SAVIOR! I so agree! Alas, I am feeling too poorly to go to church today, but reading about RAK's are uplifting. :-)

  4. Thanks y'all! I JUST realized that my listening didn't include my first line - whoopsie! Listening to my sweet boy play Mario as I'm.... updating my blogs and getting ready for church. Bahaha! I'm so silly that I didn't notice :)

  5. Found you through the Currently linky and I'm glad I did. Got lots of ideas from your text mapping post, which I'm teaching this week!

  6. I'm so glad! I love text mapping! That's a favorite activity in my classroom :) The kiddos all get pretty pumped when the markers come out!

  7. Found you from a linky party! Great blog!
