VA is for BOOK Lovers Blog Hop!

I am thrilled to be joining my fellow Virginia bloggers for a blog hop that embraces our love of BOOKS! We are each sharing a book AND a resource that we love to use in our classroom for this very special hop. Not only that, but you'll find a book giveaway on each page of the hop, with a super huge giveaway at the end... to win the whole library (ALL 19 books)!!

One of the things I love best about my job is that I HAVE FUN every day!!  That's not something everyone can say about their job, sadly.  My kiddos and I love to laugh... and a great way to do that is by reading books by Robert Munsch!

I LOVE so many of his books--but especially Mmm, Cookies!  Because... let's be serious, who doesn't love cookies!?

Click below for a freebie you can use for with this book... or any of your favorite books about COOKIES!!  (And be sure to follow my store for a COOKIE game pack... coming soon!)

Enter below for a chance to win a copy of Mmm, Cookies by Robert Munsch... and then keep hopping for chances to win each of the books from the hop. One lucky winner will win ALL of the books from our hop...that's 19 wonderful books!  (You'll find that MEGA giveaway at the end of the hop.)  

Thanks so much for hopping by! 

Virginia is for.....?

What's YOUR guess!?

Week of Giving Thanks... N is for New Chances!

Happy Thanksgiving!! 

Unfortunately, I have a sore throat... so that meant staying home instead of traveling to PA for our family celebration.  (Boo!)  But, today I am thankful for New Chances-- and that means new chances to look for good in every situation.  So instead of feeling sad about the trip that wasn't, I was glad to celebrate with my new family of 4!  We made the traditional turkey, corn, and mashed potatoes.  I tried out a new sausage, apple, and cranberry stuffing recipe and helped my 5 year old bake her first pumpkin pie.  I surprised her with the pepperoni, cheese, and cracker turkey that's been floating around Pinterest and helped my 6 month old taste his first Thanksgiving dinner (turkey, potatoes, and green beans).  I have so much to be thankful for... and this Thanksgiving reminded me that there are also plenty of New Chances to make memories!!!

Be sure to link up on Blog Hoppin' what you're thankful for!

And since tomorrow just happens to be Black Friday... I have put my store on sale. Guess that means you have a new chance to save!  HA!  :)

Week of Giving Thanks... A is for A Church Family!

My husband and I are truly thankful that we have found a perfect church family.  It's amazing how truly connected you can feel when you are worshiping in the right place!  Not only that, it's a place we go on other days too--not just Sundays!! :o)  When you've found the right fit, it's a place you want to volunteer and participate in activities... and people you love to do things with (both in and out of church).

A year ago last summer, we were searching for a new church home (but hadn't really mentioned it to our daughter, who was 4 at the time).  We attended service one Sunday.  Amazingly, later that week when driving by the building... she said, "Look Mommy, there's our new church!"  We were sold!!

Be sure to link up what you're thankful for!

Week of Giving Thanks... H is for Husband!

I consider myself thoroughly thankful that 10 years ago this past summer I married the love of my life!  He fills my days with laughter and smiles.  During those difficult times, he is my strength.  Most of all, I'm glad that he is my partner in parenting--I couldn't do it without him!

Be sure to link up what you're thankful for!

Week of Giving Thanks... T is for Teaching

This year, the girls and I at Blog Hoppin' are doing A Week of Thanks a little differently than in previous years. Each day is a new an acrostic! Every day (that you choose to participate) you can share with us what you are thankful for-but here's the catch; it needs to begin with that day's letter!
So today is T...tomorrow is get it! Yes, it spells THANKS!

When chatting with friends about jobs... it's always fun to be one of the only ones who TRULY loves their job!  I have wanted to be a teacher since I was in kindergarten.  My teacher, Mrs. Hengeller, always made learning FUN and I was lucky enough to have her for two different years (K and 2nd).  I am truly thankful to be a teacher and enjoy watching my student SOAR!!

Be sure to link up what you're thankful for!

Teacher Week: WHERE?

Many of you have been back at school for some time now.  I'm just starting to get in Back to School mode. In fact, it's going to be A LOT tougher this year since my maternity leave was exactly 6 weeks to the last day of school then we tacked on summer break.  So, I've been on break for about 14 and a half weeks so far (yes, it's going to be REALLY tough!).

My long term sub and incredible teacher assistant were AMAZING and packed up my whole room for me. Plus our custodians tried something new this year and drew maps of our rooms before emptying them to do the waxing.  Then they re-created our layout!!  Talk about incredible!  Now, it may not be EXACTLY the way it looked before, but I have never walked back in my room and felt so energized to get started--especially versus coming into a room with a pile of furniture!  HA! 

SO, as you can see, I still have a lot of work to do... to create a fun, colorful learning environment where we can build our class family.  It all begins tomorrow!!  

Don't worry, I'll share pictures of the progress... STAY TUNED!

Be sure to link up and share your classroom with us!
