My Obsessions Linky Party...Giveaway alerts...and a Question for Y-O-U!

Good Evening Friends!,
I hope you had a great day, whether it was at school or enjoying your summer vacation! I am unfortunately with all of you who are at school still, BUT only 8 DAYS LEFT!!
I am linking up with Bonnie at Living a Wonderful Life for her "I Have a Confession, This is My Obsession" linky party!
Obsession #1: Blogging
Yeah, I spend hours upon hours a day browsing blogs constantly. You have helped me become the best teacher that I can be. My husband gets mad sometimes...but I can't apologize for it! I can't help that you all have brilliant ideas!!
Obsession #2: Pinterest:

Again, I spend hours pinning away! Can I apologize to my husband for this? Sorry, nope! LOL. I have so many Pinterest projects on my to-do list this summer that I can't even see straight. The summer is going to go by real fast.
Obsession #3: Scentos:
It's plain and simple...I. LOVE.SMELLY.MARKERS!! It makes me happy & makes me want to grade papers more! My students love them too.
Obsession #4: Cute clip art
I adore cute clip art. I am obsessed with Scrappin Doodles!! Something about their clip art screams "USE ME!" I can't get enough of that either when I create my units!!
So go and link up at Living a Wonderful Life and share some of your obsessions!!
Michelle over at No Monkey Business is celebrating 100 followers!! Woohoo! You go girl! She is celebrating with a giveaway with 10 products from her TPT/TN store! Wow!! So head on over and check it out. She has an adorable blog with great ideas!!

Also Katie from Queen of the First Grade Jungle is having a ginormous giveaway for 1,000 followers! Wow, what a milestone!! She is giving away products from a slew of fabulous bloggers!! You don't want to miss this. Katie is such an awesome blogger & I am so happy for her!!

So speaking of giveaways, I am getting pretty close to 200 followers. I just had a big giveaway for TPT certificates. As much as I would love to do that again, I can't seem to find that money tree around anywhere... 
So I was thinking of a different kind of giveaway. I am almost done with my watermelon unit to give away. Would anyone be interested in donating a product from their TPT/TN store for a 200 follower giveaway? Therefore I can have a grand giveaway! If you are, email me at fsuteach81@yahoo.com and I will keep you updated and let you know when. I would soooooo appreciate it!

Have a great evening bloggy friends,


  1. Good to know I'm not the only one obsessed with checking out blogs and with the clipart. One of my friends on my team told me I needed an intervention!

  9. Hi friend! I agree with your blogging/pinning obsession. So glad to know, though, that there are so many like me who are in the same boat with LOVING blogging/pinning/ and teaching!

    Have a happy summer!

  10. I too am obsessed with blogging and blog stalking. I laughed when I read your first two obsessions b/c I wrote the same thing. I have a love hate relationship with Pinterest since it is so addicting.


  11. What a great list. I'm going to have to link up with this one tonight :) I just started blogging, but I'm already super addicted haha. I'm going to e-mail you right now.... I'd love to help with your giveaway!

Can't wait to check out your pages!
