Five for Friday

I have seen this little linky for several weeks now and have decided to give it a go and link up.  Doodle Bugs Teaching hosts this fun linky where we tell 5 random things for the week. This has been a random week!
Here are mine!
1.  Snow!  We finally have snow!!!!   My kids have both almost grown out of their snowsuits, but I refused to buy new ones.  If I bought new ones, it wouldn't snow.  My plan worked!  We had 70 degree weather last Saturday and Sunday, so I never expected to have snow!  Zack wore shorts last weekend!  Thursday was crazy at work because the kids got out at 11:30, so lunch started at 9:45 AM.  Crazy!  But so glad to be able to go home and then work at home today.
2.  I started sprucing up my products on TPT.  I started with one of my best sellers.  It is so much more fun and pretty! 
3.  I made my first sale on Teacher's Notebook today!!!  I started a couple of weeks ago and was biting my nails.  I sold none other than:  Main Idea and Detail Concentration!  Can you blame them?

4.  I am so loving my new blog design!  Christi did a wonderful job, and I still can't believe I am looking at my blog!!! 

5.  I am three followers away from 400 and am ready for a big giveaway!  I can't wait to get it started!

Head on over and see what everyone else is doing too!
Until next time!


  1. Congratulations on your first sale at TN! How do you like that website? I just use TPT now and only started in October. Also congrats on almost 400 followers; that's quite an accomplishment!

    1. I have been selling on TPT since 2008 and really like it, but I wanted to try something new. I really like TN. You have to have your own thumbnails, but I like that you get paid quicker. I also think they have easier ways to showcase your products, and the fee is a one-time fee. I was featured in their newsletter the past two weeks and didn't even have to "apply". Kinda nice, even though they did make a booboo. If you are on TPT, TN is just as easy!


  2. I am jealous of your snow! We need some in Ohio! Snow day!!! Congrats on nearing 400! Awesome!!

  4. Awwww! Look at all of that snow!!! We had 70s last weekend too! Then we went to the 30s on Thursday. I kinda doubt we'll get snow this year in Georgia! :O(

    Congrats on being featured on TN!! That's great! We started fixing up the first units we had made too! It's amazing what you learn in a short time!! :O)
