Shut the Front Door- 500 Followers!

Can I get a "what! what!"


I wanted to celebrate- and I wanted you to celebrate with me!
How could we do that?
A Hip Hip Hooray at the count of 3? (someone always messes that up)
A round of "For She's a Jolly Good Fellow"? (I'm not a dude)
A virtual toast (time zones can REALLY trip that one up....ahem...)

So instead I asked a few friends-
to come and celebrate with me by participating in a
 (it's a word)

Now you are asking
"What makes it so HUGEMONGOUS?"

Well, the obvious-
people listen to me VOLUNTARILY- I mean,
come on-
I've said it before- I can't get the 4 other people who live here to
listen to me
And ya'll chose to be here-
so sweet!

And the other thing that makes it so awesome is that
there are almost 40 items/units that you can win!!
You heard it right folks- almost 40!
And you might win more than one-
they are each their own giveaway!


They are all the hard work of our fellow teachers and that makes everything
that much better! It's for us, by us!

There will be 5  giveaways each day!

I hope this all makes sense
(sometimes things make
A WHOLE LOTTA sense in my head- but
when I put the words out there-
well. that's a different story)

Today I will post 5 items from 5 beautiful friends.
Use the Rafflecopter below each item to enter to win.
Each giveaway is only open for 48 hours!
I'm a "instant gratification" kinda gal!

So be sure to enter them all!
Good Luck!
