It's Official...and a giveaway

It's officially summer break!  I finally finished up all my classroom duties (it took me an extra day because of all those extra "hats" I wear).

Finally.... was the first day that I could sleep in (of course, I was still up at 6:15 am). is the first day that I can stay in pajamas until...whenever (It is currently 9:30 am and I am still sporting them). is the first day that I can relax and enjoy one...two...three cups of coffee if I consecutive order (normally, I have one, maybe two in the am and one, maybe two in the pm...I'm currently on cup #2). is the first day that I can actually catch up on all the blogs I follow,  play on FB, peruse pinterest at a relaxing pace, and even post on my own blog (I've done all of the following so far). is the first day that I can actually do a thorough cleaning of my house (I'm already on top of that too..laundry is in...there are no dishes in the sink...I'm thinking I will tackle my seven year old daughter's room today). is the first day that I can actually take my time and enjoy my breakfast (I haven't even made myself breakfast yet...I forgot about it because I am so excited about all the other things that I can do...I firmly believe that my body could survive on coffee alone...even though I know that isn't very healthy). is the first day that I could do absolutely nothing if I want too (However, I don't believe my ADHD self would allow this to ever happen...oh, and my littles wouldn't allow me to do this either...they are just like me and want to always be doing something.  They don't just "sit" well.  Except for when they are in school...Ha!  Same as me!).

Well, I think you get the idea that I am excited about summer break.

I am also excited about all of the new followers that I have picked up because of my $10 Target gift card giveaway.  I am so excited that you decided to follow little 'ole me.  I am pretty sure that I have returned the love and are following you (if you have a blog).

Yes, my 100 follower giveaway is still open...but will be closing soon (Friday @ midnight).  If you haven't entered yet...please do.  Really all you have to do is follow me and leave a comment.  I love to hear from my blogging friends!  Especially now that it is summer break.  

Is it just me or does anyone else miss the communication with your co-workers during the summer?  I know that our team tries to get together once a week, even if it is just for fun (trips to IKEA, lunch, beach, etc).  As a matter of fact, we have a trip planned for tomorrow.  We are going to IKEA and Lakeshore husband better take the credit card from me now.

Speaking of giveaways....

Heather over at Heather's Heart also has an AWESOME giveaway going on right now.  Go check it out and enter!

Good luck! although I have all this time to do whatever I neglected house is calling my name.  It needs a little bit of attention.  I have been ignoring it's calls for quite some time now. Oh, and you know how we are at the end of the year in our know in the "pitching" mood.  All I daughter's bedroom better LOOK OUT!

Happy Blogging!
