What's Ahead in 2013, Currently, Giveaway + Sale!!

Happy New Year's Eve!!

So another year is coming to an end. It is so crazy to think that it seems like yesterday was the beginning of 2012 and now we are venturing into 2013. From my family to yours, I wish you all a wonderful new year. May 2013 bring you happiness and good fortune!

Today I'm linking up with Michelle at Making It As A Middle School Teacher and Farley at Oh Boy 4th Grade to talk about some of the things that I have planned for 2013...

Here are some of my goals/events for next year...

2013 is going to bring more hard work, but I'm up for it. I am changing my outlook on things, both personally and professionally. These last few months have been an immense struggle to me, but I realize that I am the only one that can change how things affect my life. I am in the process of making a lot of changes and I think it will be good for me. =)

Farley at Oh Boy 4th Grade  is having her monthly Currently. Here is what I'm up to:

I'm so excited that my friend and I decided to hang out spur of the moment for New Year's Eve. I was set to have a boring NYE at home, maybe working on TPT products, but I'm so excited that plans have changed.I need to have a fun evening with friends!! I have been cooped up for the past 2 weeks with a 3 year old lol!

I am excited that it's a new year. I feel like there is so much that I want to change that now is a good time to do it! That's why my OLW is CHANGE!!

Don't forget to enter for a chance to win a copy of my Plenty of Penguin nonfiction unit!! It features information and fun on 10 different species of penguins!!

 2 lucky winners will receive a copy of it. But hurry hurry, the giveaway ends at midnight when the ball drops!

Also, don't miss out on my Happy New Year sale in my Teachers Pay Teachers. All of my items are 20% off. Now is a perfect time to stock up on some back to school goodies!!
