Today was a crazy day.
It started off with waking up in the middle of the night because Murphie can’t hold it all night long. Neither can I, as a matter of fact, but at least I get to stay in my house, upstairs, and I don’t need to put shoes on in order to do it. I know she will be able to hold it all night eventually, but I really hope it will hurry up and get here because lack of sleep on my end is just not any good for anybody. Mainly me.
Then I went to school.
Now I am teaming up with some of my favorite bloggers who have become some of my best friends for a HUGE giveaway.
Basically, in a nut shell, each of us are giving something away.
I am giving away one item of your choice from my “store”. And I’m also giving away a $10 gift certificate to Teachers Pay Teachers in case you don’t want anything from my store. Because maybe you teach sixth grade. (Kim) Or maybe you teach fourth grade. (Tara) Or maybe you just don’t like what I have to offer. Shrug shoulders. To teach their own, right?
Teach their own . . . get it?
This will be my first time using Rafflecopter. All the cool kids are doing it. I succumbed to peer pressure because a light breeze could push me over.
Jen R. @ The Teachers' Cauldron says
yay!!you got it going 🙂 I'm so glad you succumbed to that peer pressure!
YAY giveaways are awesome! Thanks!
Keep Calm and Apple On

To Teach Their Own, haha! You kill me! I am like 3 episodes behind on the Bachelor (gasp, I know) so I have had to avoid your blog… I didn't want to already know all the details… so I was thrilled to see you pop up on the giveaway, I missed your sassy commentary! Haha! Is it weird that I feel like I kind of know you, even though I don't, simply because I have been reading your blog for oh so long! Not a stalker, I swear.
Emily W. says
