Shame on me…. I know!

I know, I know… I have been absent for a while. This is SUCH a major transition time in my life that blogging needed to take a back seat to everything else. Sorry! Therefore, I am going to try to catch you up on what I have been doing since the school year ended.  *And news about an awesome giveaway at the end*

First off, I am still on the hunt for a school to call my home, so PLEASE please please send your prayers and love my way! I know that God has a plan for me, and I keep telling myself to listen to him and be patient. So send those good vibes my way ladies!

Now, where in the world have I been… I started in Vegas for my Bachlorette party. My friends are amazing and we had the best girls trip! I refused to take off my veil the entire trip. I loveeeeed it.

 Then we were off to Disney the next week! Yes, this was my FIRST time being there. I was acting like one of my first graders when I saw one of the princesses. Lame I know, but I could not help it. 
Yes, I wore my sequined Minnie Mouse ears the entire day. I blended right in with the children. 
As soon as we got back I left again for a work trip with my fiance and NOW I am finally home. 
And in less than one month I will be walking down an isle to that guy!  I know! I am so ready for that day to get here! 

I do have some blogging updates for you guys:
1. I have a new blog coming out soon with Ffion from The First Grade Jungle {You know, my BFF}. Since we will no longer be 1st grade co-workers this is the second best thing for us to do. And lemme' just tell you this blog is CUTE! Would you expect anything less? I am so excited to begin blogging with Ffion. We have many exciting ideas on where we want this blog to go!

2. I am going to be doing a LAKESHORE giveaway soon! (After I reach that 1,000 follower mark :) I plan to start blogging some of my best ideas and tips on how to prepare your classroom for the upcoming year. If you have seen my classroom last year, then you already know I love planning and organizing my classroom. 
Therefore, this giveaway is geared toward organizing and getting your classroom together. 
*I will also be uploading different signs from my classroom last year for free to share with you all*

3. I will also be reviewing a few things from Lakeshore, which they have been so kind to give away a promotional card during that time! So keep checking back for that as well!

4. When I am not busy packing, moving, planning a wedding, I will be working on some TpT stuff that I am excited about!

I hope you are all enjoying your summer break! It is well deserved!
