Giveaway Winner and Things I Love Linky

Wow!  This weekend just got away from me!  I was going to post this ages ago today, but my son had his 4th birthday party to attend today!  Then I came home to get ready for the week, including making supper.  I am finally able to sit down and do some blogging.

Anyway, my winner is Angie!  She chose a Barnes and Noble gift card, and is probably using it right now!  Lucky her!!!  Like I said, I wish I could have entered my own giveaway!

Thank you to everyone for entering and following!  It sure was fun!  

Now, for the Linking Up with Love Linky with Tessa from Tales from Outside the Classroom.  This is a perfect time to reflect on the things I love!

I will start off with my home life:  I love my family!  I love my children who make me laugh and play with me often!  Today is my sweet Ginny Beth's second birthday, and I am loving that she is learning so much during the time of the "Terrific Two's".  I love that Zack yearns to learn so much!  I love my husband who helps me out around the house because he knows how much I hate to clean!

At work:  I love my job!  I love being a Reading Specialist and working with those students who need extra help.  It makes my job so much fun!  Every half hour is different, and I wouldn't have it any other way!

Blogging world:  I love the people I have met through blogging!  I love the relationships that I have formed.  There are several bloggers who I feel like I really know, which makes it more fun!  I also love the giveaways!  I have fun having my own giveaways and helping others out!  I am currently helping out with a giveaway by Storie from Stories by Storie as she celebrates 300 Followers!

I also won a $25 gift card from Christi at Ms. Fultz's Corner!  Can't wait to hit the Dollar Spot!  Now my husband can't complain!!  She also designed my blog, so I am super excited to win from her!

Technology:  I love using Power Point to make everything!  I can do so much with it!  It is easy to create fun things, and I learn something new every time I use it.  I also love Google!  Without it, I would not be able to do anything on this computer!  

TPT and TN:  I LOVE them both!  I have been selling on TPT since 2008 and have really been working at it more lately.  Here are some highlights from my store:
