Back to Reality & a TpT Giveaway!

Can I get a...SIGH?!!. Today was a train wreck wonderful day {more on this tomorrow}. It was my first day back after enjoying two totally awesome weeks of sleeping in, blog stalking, shopping, and basically just doing nothing but relaxing and living in the moment. I almost couldn't muster up the energy to post but just had to after I noticed I received my FIRST AWARD from Sarah over at 



Thank- you so much for this award Sarah! I am truly over the moon!


These are the rules: 
1. Thank the person that nominated you with a link back to them.
2. Tell 7 things about yourself.
3. Pass the award to 15 newly discovered blogs and let them  
    know that they've received an award. 

Here we go with my 7 things: 

1. I began blog stalking a year ago but only decided to join 
   in on the fun last November. I had cold feet...lol. 
2. I have a MASSIVE collection of clip art. I need a 12 step 
   program. I'm not big on pretty fonts, but clip art...OH MY 
   WORD! 
3. I have a Master's Degree in Reading and enjoy finding 
   creative ways to teach Reading to my little ones.  
4. I love BOOKS! {what teacher doesn't?} hence, my degree          
   in Reading, but I've never been much of a writer {insane 
   thing for a blogger huh?}
5. I am addicted to TPT!!!! Majorly addicted! {ok, I'm noticing 
   a trend here with my addictions} SSHH! Don't tell my 
   hubby. 
6. I'm Autism certified. I've worked with numerous autistic 
   kids and each one has left a lasting impression on me. 
   They are amazing kids!! 
7. Last, but certainly not least, and as a matter of 
   fact...THE most important is; I'm a mom to an awesome 8- 
   year- old little one who brightens my day while driving 
   me crazy at the same time.

I'm passing this award to: Darling' in First, Mrs. Ricca's Kindergarten, & Teacher Laura. Please stop by & check out their sweet blogs.

Sorry I couldn't search for more. I broke the rules here. 

WHEW! Thanks for bearing with me, hang on, almost done.       


SO, not only did I receive this awesome award but my little blog reached 50 followers as of today which calls for a GIVEAWAY!!!! And here I thought I'd have 10 followers forever! I love you all!!!
