It’s the most wonderful time of the year! I’m here with December Favorites!



For months, I’ve been keeping a little secret to myself – NAEIR! You guys…you’re either gonna love me or hate me – because your classroom budget will be blown out the door after you visit this website!!

NAIER’s mission is to get high-quality, goods from American corporations into classrooms {and other non-profit organizations} for a fraction of their retail cost!

I’ve been a member for about a year and I’ve scored a Scotch Laminator {and laminating pouches} more 3M Command Hooks than I will ever need, Crayola markers and crayons, endless stickers, Dry Erase markers, and so much more!

Each morning, I get an email with the latest items added to the catalog.  That’s dangerous – I start looking and can’t stop myself from looking! It’s a treasure hunt each and every day!

The best part? The Teacher Program is free!

Go check it out and see what you can score for your classroom…for a steal!

Essential Oils

I have tasted the Essential Kool-Aid and I want more! I always thought that oils were just to diffuse. My oh my, was I wrong! I’ve made all sorts of lotions, potions, and cures 🙂

I’ve even made a Pinterest board if you need some inspiration!

Follow Lucky to Be in First’s Lunch Bunch Board on Pinterest.

I bought my essential oils from my friend, Valentine! You should definitely add the starter kit to your Christmas wishlist!

But if you don’t want the whole YL kit and caboodle, start small! Buy a diffuser from Amazon and a few oils to get started! My favorite oils are Peppermint and Lemon!

There are so many ‘recipes’ out there to stay healthy as the weather drops!

Wellness Formula

Speaking of staying healthy…you need to order yourself some Wellness Formula.  A coworker shared this little secret with me a few years ago and {knock on wood} it’s actually prevented me from getting sick!

At the first sign of malaise, you simply take a few a few capsules and drink a bunch of water! Voila – you stay healthy!

 Book Pairings on Instagram

You guys know I love me some good books! You too? {No wonder we’re friends!} Make sure to head on over and follow Laci from BookPairings.  She makes great book suggestions – and gives honest opinions!


I have a list as long as my arm to devour during Winter Break! Here’s to hoping for some Amazon gift cards this year!

Secret Agent Learning

You guys…these Secret Agent activities are game changers in the classroom! My kids are so engaged!

I also just love how they’re store in my classroom!
