H is for Hundred Hoorah!

Yaaaay! Happy day! I've reached 100 followers on my bloggy blog!

You have to understand that this is crazy because I started this blog (to vent about Mr. TV) on January 10, 2010. I had about 18 followers. There were about three of you guys that I didn't bully into signing up. =)

Then, I lost my "inspiration" for blogging when he went to third grade and I had a great class last year. I was so busy with teaching, tutoring, being a first time Relay for Life co-captain, and a Teacher of the Year that I did only a handful of posts. I had a whopping 22 followers.

When my 2nd blogiversary came January 2012, I had a new plan. A friend (Hi Heather!) inspired me to start a TPT store and it fit my new year's resolution perfectly.

So here we are a little over a month after my revamp and I'm at triple digit readers. I know it's not a lot but compared to some people, but it's a lot to a girl like me. You all mean so much to me.

Thanks to The Eager Teacher for being 100. Go check out her blog. It's adorable.

So now for the giveaway!

I grew up in Lakeland, Florida and now live in a town very close to it. I often head over there to go to this awesome teacher supply store to stock up. I was so lucky my first year because they have a consignment section where you can get a lot of crazy good deals.

It is the Teachers' Exchange and it's in the most awesome building in Lakeland.
 The owners, the McKowns, generously agreed to be a part of the giveaway and offered a $25 dollar gift certificate their store! You have to check out their website...anything you need is on there!


So here are the prizes:

Winner 1 - $25 gift certificate to the Teachers' Exchange that can be used online.

Winner 2 - $10 gift certificate for Teachers Pay Teachers.

Winner 3 - Three things from my TPT store.

The rest of you winners - Your choice of one of my fluency centers.


Here's how to enter: (Make sure to leave your email, too!)

1. Leave me a comment telling me you follow my blog and tell me which fluency center you'd like.
2. Follow my facebook page and leave a comment below.
3. Follow my  TPT store and leave a comment below.
4. Follow me on Pinterest and leave a comment below.
5. Follow the Teachers' Exchange facebook page and leave a comment below. Leave another comment if you live in or near Lakeland and have been there!

I will use a random number generator and announce the winners on Wednesday, February 22.

Thank you all for reading my silliness and being such great bloggy buddies!

  21. Your story is pretty similar to mine...except I took this year of teaching off, and I already had TPT store (but with work, kids, running a business & working on a Masters it was pretty dead)...well, maybe your story is not that similar..except that I made a goal to revamp & take charge of my time...and so far, it is starting to pay off...little by little (hehehe).

    I read your comment this morning and I just laughed out loud to myself! LOOOOOOVE IT (in my Oprah voice)! hahahahaha...you are so completely fabulous! I could totally hear the "Oprah" as I read it...thanks for the morning cheer!! & Thank you for visiting my blog!!

    I love your 100 contest, but no matter how much I LOVE to win...I prefer to leave those awesome teachery gift cards to those in the classroom...I would feel too guilty trying to win something that I couldn't even put to good use this year )-; I ran into a principal friend of mine about a month ago and I have an opportunity to teach 7th grade Language Arts next year within walking distance of my house....I have a little while to make a decision, but I am not sure. I really miss the little-er guys...even though I LOVED teaching middle school (I never went home sore or tired & I still got the love from the kids)...

    well, enough about me....you are AWESOME!!! I'm glad we found each other in this wired web!
