January Currently, Facebook, and an Approaching Giveaway!

Happy New Year, friends! 

Hard to believe we're in a brand new year, because that means we're what, halfway done with the school year, too? Craziness. For us teachers, that means we have to hit the ground running, trying to make every minute meaningful and engaging--not that we didn't do that anyway. Until then, I'm still in relaxation mode and am therefore linking up for the January Currently.


Since it's a new year, I've decided to up my social media game and finallyyyyy joined Facebook. It only took me 7 million hours to figure out how to add the "fan freebie" tab, but after much googling and grunting, I got it up and working. I'd love for you to come find me! Once I get my "teacher brain" up and running again, I'll be posting freebies! Click on my cover picture below to visit my facebook page, or simply visit:

                                                                 Thanks, friends! :)

And finally, my friend Joanne from Head Over Heels for Teaching and Holly from Fourth Grade Flipper both reached 1,000 followers so they are hosting a 1K New Year's Celebration. Be sure to check out their pages beginning tomorrow to enter into a drawing for some awesome prizes!

  1. Your Christmas sounded amazing! I love your wants! They are on my want list now too! :)
    Happy New Year!

  2. I so feel you on that Dora! In my house its Doc McStuffins and Jake and the Neverland Pirates! But hearing it everyday as I have spent time with my son has been a blessing. I am so excited about my mani and pedi this weekend! Hope you get one soon!

  3. I really want to check out the T25. Do you love it? I'm worried that I won't stick with it though...just like I don't stick with anything exercise related. I'm the world's worst about it. I might need to put that on my birthday wish list. Dillard's has some Michael Kors watches that are pretty reasonable. I saved up last year to get one...for a long time! Lol

  4. I love your wants.... I think I need a second job for all my wants too! :) Happy new year!

  5. I haven't written my plans for when we go back, either. I need to get on that! We were supposed to go back tomorrow, but we are getting a pretty big storm. Schools are closed until Monday. Woo!

  6. Hi Mandy! I just found your blog through Farley's Currently bloghop and am your newest follower! Congrats on your fitness success so far! I absolutely love Shaun T, my husband and I have been making our way through Insanity (with moderate success). It is a journey... but it is worth it! Best of luck with all of your goals this year :)

    I am currently celebrating my 2 Year Blogiversary and would love for you to stop by, celebrate, and enter my giveaway!
