Reading, Giveaways & Cookie Linky Party

     This is the second day of dreary weather occurring during my much needed Christmas Holiday break! Rainy & just flat miserable! On a positive note though... this weather does put me in the mood for reading. So after posting, I'm going to slip under the covers and read until I fall asleep and then read again when I wake back up.  (Repeating the cycle until my hubby gets home).   The only thing that would make is better would be a little rumble of thunder every now and then. I don't know what it is about that sound, but I LOVE it when I'm nice and cozy and with a good book in my hand. 

     While doing some major stocking stalking over the past few days, I've found a few giveaways that you might want to check out.   I always question why I want to share them with you guys though.  Seriously!!! It certainly doesn't improve my chances of winning!!!!  But it is the holiday season...and well...consider it my gift to you! Good luck one and all! 

     First up on my stocking stalking list is Second Grade Shenanigans. She is giving away her ENTIRE TPT STORE!!! How crazy for her and wonderful for us is that!

     Next let your fingers do the walking and head on over to Dreamlike Magic.   She is celebrating 1000 Facebook Fans! That really makes my 200 fans (mostly family members)  seem really really teeny tiny. She is giving away a $25 gift voucher to Dreamlike Magic Designs! I'm so much wanting to win this one. I mean seriously! Look at this blog...I need a little help!!!!!!!!

     Last, but certainly not to be considered any less important is happening over at Live Laugh and Love to Learn in Second Grade.  She is keeping us all on the edge of our seats trying to figure out what the mystery is. She won't even give us a hint, except to say that she is also giving the mystery gift to her Holly Bloggy Christmas Pal!

 Oh yes... one more rather important thing. My awesome first grade teaching partner is having a Cookie Linky Party over at Klinger Cafe'. However, I'm VERY upset with her right now... since I told her a few weeks ago that I was going to do a Cookie Linky Party...but that I had to figure out how to do it first!!!  Seriously, head on over to her sight and please tell her that I sent you AND THAT SHE CAN MAKE HER OWN CASHEW CARAMEL CORN THIS YEAR!!!  She has a adorable site!  You will definitely want to go over and see it!


  1. This from the woman that wouldn't even share the name of her blog with me!! Even after I posted on her blog HOW to have a linky party and then told her AGAIN when I Finally FIGURED out this was her blog. AND that was like a MONTH ago so the statute of limitations are up. AND it was BARBARA at Corner on Character that REALLY gave me the IDEA cause who can REMEMBER past yesterday when you work with children. MAYBE if you'd LINK UP your recipe I WOULD make my own Caramel Corn....but probably NOT. Cause it wouldn't be as GOOD as yours cause we all know I'm not as OBSESSIVE...I mean I mean that's not it-as MUCH OF A PERFECTIONIST...ok, as careful as YOU! (see I found a nicer word than I usually use.
    Geeze I hope people don’t get the wrong idea about us!

  2. It sounds like you are perfect for each other! I will be creating my blog soon and I will be watching you two! funny girls!

  3. Hey - I LOVE cashew caramel corn, so send some to Friendswood!!! You two are hilarious; thanks for the Christmas chuckle.


  4. girls are funny!
    And I TOTALLY get the double-edged sword of it want to help out other bloggers, but you want to win too!! lol
    I will definitely head over there to link up with my fave cookie...just as soon as I narrow it down to one! ha!!
