Awards, Reminder, Thank You, and Stuff! :)

I want to thank Amy at The Resource(ful) Room for awarding me the Versatile Blogger Award!  If you haven't been to Amy's blog, then you are missing out!!  Go...Now!!

I also want to thank Christina at Live, Laugh, Teach (love that name!) who awarded me the Liebster Award!

The rules for the Versatile Blogger Award are to:
1. Thank the person who presented the award to you and link back to them. Thanks, Amy

2.  Tell seven things about yourself.
1.) I turned 40 in November--how did I get so old?
2.) I have a daughter who just turned 17, who is growing up too fast, who told me today that she will be 18 this year, and who absolutely loves classic rock!
3.) I will be married 19 years in March, and I'm planning a "secret" trip this summer since our 20th falls the same year as our daughter's graduation--and she's requested a Disney Cruise!  
4.) I am a Disney fanatic--so is my husband and daughter!  
5.) I am on the board of a charitable organization, Dreams Come True, which grants dreams to children with life-threatening illnesses.  i LOVE meeting kids and families and seeing their faces light up when their dream is granted.  If I weren't a teacher, I would want to work full-time in this area.
6.) I love digital scrapbook stuff--I don't necessarily scrapbook, but I love to make invitations, games, etc.  I really want to pursue creating my own graphics, but I'm not there yet!
7.) I will complete my Master's Degree in May!!! 

3. Pass this on to newly discovered blogs:

The rules for the Liebster Award are:

1. Show your appreciation to the blogger who nominated you by linking back to their blog. Thank you, Christina!!

2. Nominate five happy little blogs (200 followers or less) by posting a comment on their blogs.

3. Post the award on your blog.--Done!

4. Check out what the other up-and-coming blogs have to offer.

I also wanted to say THANK YOU to Jen at The Teacher's Cauldron!  I won her Amazon GC giveaway!!!  It didn't take me long to hop on over to Amazon, load up my cart, and check out!!!  Thanks Jen!  If you haven't been to Jen's blog, you should go....right now!

And if you are still reading......a reminder about my giveaway!  

I went to my classroom today---I had to bribe myself, but I went.  I told myself that if I went for an hour and a half, I could buy some new books!!  Pitiful...I know!  Anyway, I turned on a movie, The Money Pit, because I need sound so I don't hear the critters--yep, we have critters!  I love that movie!!  
While I was there, I put up my matter bulletin board,

cleaned off our math table that was literally overflowing with junk, cleaned off my small-group math shelf (I even wiped off the dust), and picked up about 30 marshmallows from containers on the shelf and on the floor--see marshmallow post!

I guess it's time to get lesson plans done!! :(

Have a great weekend!

I just awarded you the Liebster Blog Award only to see that you already have received it. Does that mean that you are doubly awesome? :)
