Let's Celebrate - with a giveaway!!!

Today is a day to celebrate!!!



I FINALLY did it!

I made a Facebook page!



Click HERE to "like" me.


AND....

I have made it to 1,000 followers!! woohoo!!

(Thank you, Debbie for being the 1,000th!)

I am just so excited that there are people out there that like what I have to say, share, show, ramble about. lol


I must say that blogging REALLY has made a difference in my life.

I mean...BESIDES the permanent butt-print in my desk chair..lol

I have grown so much in my teaching career - I mean, blogging and blog stalking and forming these WONDERFUL friendships with other OUT OF THIS WORLD teachers really has made me a better teacher.

TODAY, my baby girl turns THREE!!

This was on our trip to the Keys for my birthday...we stopped at Jackson's in Ft. Lauderdale...and while she looks all excited to eat that, she only had one bite...ha!!

Now, you all have been with me since the birth of B, or rather, I have been posting since her birth and a lot of you were there when I posted her birth story, but you never really got to see A grow up...
let me show you my "birthday montage" of my baby girl,

  Autumn Rose.

Happy BIRTH!
7 lbs, 12 oz, 20 1/4 inches tall...born 9/3/09...at 9:08 p.m.


Happy FIRST birthday!!



 Here she is with her take on "Fancy Nancy."



Happy 2nd brithday!!

This was her ice cream social birthday party.

These are the FUN cupcakes I made for the party...


yes...that is a cupcake - so fun!

And here she is...at 3 years old...

(she wanted a purple cake with purple ice cream - so I made a black forest cake with purple icing on a purple plate with a purple candle and purple ice cream...lol...she didn't eat any of it though - ha!)

WHERE does the time go, my friends???

Well....

in honor of all this celebrating, I am having a 15% off sale on BOTH my stores

and since today is my daughter's 3rd birthday

and we have 3 reasons to celebrate today,

the sale will last for 3 days...

AND...

I'm having a giveaway!!!

I will give THREE people any item they want from my TpT store.

Please just make sure you "like" my new Facebook page and make sure you follow my little ole blog.

You will also have THREE chances to win...lol - do you see a theme here?

Leave ONE comment that you follow BOTH my FB and blog

ONE comment saying what your favorite birthday cake is (or whatever you like in place of the birthday cake)

ONE comment if you shared this giveaway.

I will choose the winners in THREE days.

Good luck to all my friends out there!

My favorite birthday cake is the one I've had since my first birthday and it's the one my daughter has had for all of her birthdays. There is a local cake shop that makes the most wonderful cakes! When you walk in the door - Oh! the smell goes in your nose and fills your whole body! It's the most incredible aroma! I truly believe it's exactly what heaven will smell like!
