Great Big Giveaway Kick Off!!!!

Update 10/15/12 Additional entry option added for giveaway

(Frame The 3AM teacher. Graphics MelonHeadz)
Get it?????  Kick off as in football??????
As promised....it's time for a fun giveaway!!!  I cannot believe I have hit 2000 followers (not spiders)!!!!

I seriously started blogging about a year and a half ago, to keep my mind busy and not become a depressed mess as my first born went away to college.  I mean that.....not going into detail but my husband and I went through a lot to get the 2 kiddos we have and I have some separation issues!!!
Don't get me wrong......I was happy for my girl but if I could have my way, I would keep my kids forever with me...lol!!!  I'm just so much happier when we are all together and under the same roof.  So her leaving was super hard on me and blogging saved me!  Little did I know how much it would change my life!!!!  I have learned so much from others, been encouraged by others, made wonderful friends, had super laughs, been pushed as a teacher, found wonderful resources,.........the list goes on!  My only regret now is there never seems to be enough time to read and catch up on all the wonderfulness out there:)  

So, as a little thanks back, I want to celebrate this milestone with a giveaway and a million ways to enter...lol.  Lots of my bloggy buds have joined in on the fun and I'm so excited about this!!!  I have decided to have 2 winners cuz there's so much yummy awesomeness to share! (Thanks bloggys buds!)

  17. Wow! What an awesome giveaway! I hope I win...:) I have been following you for a few months now and love your Monday Made It's! I still need to link up with something for October though.....hopefully! I know just how you feel about your first born leaving for college. My daughter lives about 2 hours away from me and has for over 2 years. She loves Tallahassee so much she is staying there....:( She has much better opportunities there and her fella, but I sure do miss my "baby" girl! Have a great week!

  50. Hi Tara,
    I am also a Christian mother of two and was a 4th grade teacher for years but have been a third grade teacher for about 5-6 years now. I love both and would actually love to do a 3-4 multi-age someday. I have been following your blog for a while and now I have started my own blog about a week ago. I'm having a giveaway too if you're interested. I blogged about your giveaway on this post.

After dealing with years of standardized testing pressure, I found your blog a breath of fresh air! I felt like I finally found "my people". I was able to take your ideas and those of others and rejuvinate my teaching. Thank you, thank you, thank you for starting this blog!!!
