Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!!

Our week has arrived, it's Teacher Appreciation Week!  There are many benefits to being a teacher- the first ones that come immediately to my mind are: June and July, discounts at certain stores, and a huge sale on TpT and TN!  Of course, I don't even have to mention the most obvious one- watching the lightbulb turn on over our little ones' heads!  I am sure some of your schools are doing fabulous things for you this week and I'd love to hear about your special treats this week.  I hope you will leave a comment about them!

I am participating in the TpT and TN sale this week, please fill up your shopping cart!
Thanks Erica for the sign!

My treat this week is in the form of a complete bathroom make over at my house!  This week, we are having the entire shower tiled and new tiles around the bathtub.  Had a new counter and faucets installed last week.  By the end of Teacher Appreciation Week 2012, Ms. Lester is going to be one happy teacher!!  I will post some before and after pictures after the work is completed! :)

I am so happy to have 14 followers!!  It says 15, but I accidentially followed myself....I swear it was as accident (like high-fiving myself, right #1 follower??) But now I can't figure out how to delete it.  If any of you know how to delete a follower, please tell me!  As soon as I hit 20 I am going to have a giveaway, so spread the word and help me build my fanbase :)  I am a follow-back girl, you follow me and i'll follow you!

Happy Monday,
