1 YEAR BLOGAVERSARY AND A GIVEAWAY TOO!!!

HAPPY 1 YEAR BLOG"AVERSARY" TO ME!!!


I'm so excited about this ya'll! One year ago today I started my blogging/TPT adventure. Let me take ya'll back about 2 1/2 years. I was teaching in a different district than I am now. My then co-teacher and I became obsessed with TeachersPayTeachers. and the teacher blogging world. About a year later I began to get the idea of starting my own blog but wasn't sure about it. I never thought anyone would want to read what I do in my classroom. Finally,  a few months later my amazing co-teacher (I miss her so much) convinced me to follow this "dream" of mine. I created a TPT account and posted a few things. The next morning, I walk into my co-teachers room (our rooms were connected) and immediately began talking about how this was a bad idea and how no one would ever be interested in something I made....2 hours later I walk back into her room saying "OMG someone bought something..." I was in complete shock!
 
Here are my 1 year milestones!
524 TPT followers
515 blog followers
372 facebook followers
730 instagram followers
I'm the 121 top seller in the state of TX out of 4,059 (that may not be a big deal to someone but it is to me!!!)
 
WOW ya'll! I want to thank each and everyone of you for all of your support over the last year. I feel truly blessed and never imagined the success I have had.
 
Now onto the celebration! I have asked 21 bloggers/TPT sellers who have inspired me over the last year to help me put together a little giveaway! Each of these ladies has helped me in some way over the last 12 months. They have given advice, listened to me vent, shared personal stories and have truly become some wonderful friends. I've even had a chance to meet some of these precious ladies in person. You can read about our blogger meet up here. I've had Janet from Second Grade Waves niece in my class! Yes, its true. She teaches in Florida and I teach in Texas. I'll never forget that "I think you have my niece in your class e-mail!" Anna from Simply Skilled in Second  and I were pen pals last year! Sweet Jennifer from 4mulaFun helped me with my resume last spring. All Ya'll Need is a group of 3 sweet ladies who are fellow Red Raiders! Go Tech! Everyone else has helped me along the way and I could not thank them enough.
 
 First up is the K-2 giveaway! 10 lovely ladies have donated some fantastic units up for grabs! Here is what you can win!
