BIG NEWS, Giveway and a Name Change!

No, I am not changing the name of my blog. However, I am changing my last name! I am officially a married girl!  
Here is a quick pic my bridesmaid snapped of me before we headed out of the room. As soon as my photographer gives me pictures I will share some more pictures of my big day along with our honeymoon. It was everything I could have dreamed of and more! 

Now, on to the BIG NEWS. 
If you have been following my blog for a few months now, you all know I have been on the hunt for a teacher home! I just moved to a new city (thank you to the new husband) and left my old teaching position behind. Such a bittersweet few months! I just kept faith that God would put me in the right position as I continued to search for a new job in a new city!

The week before my wedding (2 weeks ago) I received a phone call from a principal who had seen my resume, I went in for an interview and I loved her, she was amazing! ONE hour later… my phone was ringing from HR asking me if I wanted to accept the position. Did I possibly squeal in the phone? Yes. It is what I do when I am BEYOND happy. PTL! 

Even better news… I AM BACK IN FIRST GRADE! God knew exactly what he was doing. So, this week is go mode. I get into my new classroom today, filling out paperwork galore, and I am still trying to unpack our house. Think of an episode of hoarders in a bachelor pad. Ugh, it's not good.  

So onto my giveaway. In honor of all of the amazing changes in my life and my fab followers who read,  comment and support, this one is for you! 

I have teamed up with the fabulous Lakeshore Learning to host a little giveaway. Tomorrow I will be doing a full post on a few items they graciously sent me to review, including the giveaway item. I mean seriously? I love ALL of their products. They also are giving my followers a promotional code to use during these back to school weeks. Seriously? Where did my summer go? Oh yeah, to planning that wedding of mine. :)

Want to know what I will be giving away in tomorrow's post?
Yes! Magnetic Display Clips! 
I have had sooooo many comments on these bad boys that I figured this would be the perfect Back to School Year Giveway! So PLEASE check back tomorrow and enter yourself! I promise you will LOVE these as much as I do!
