Fauxgraduation, Testing and a Giveaway!

Hey there everyone!  How you doin'?  (I hope you read that in your best Joey Tribiani voice!)

Well, I graduated on Saturday!  Well, Fauxgraduated.  You see, I still have two classes to take this summer, so no diploma or anything.  It was still nice.  There was a little argument dispute over my purse.  You see, I was going to give the hubby our Flip Camera and regular camera, so I brought my purse with me.  Well, when we parted ways, I handed the hubby my purse and he looked at me like I had 12 eyes!  I told him people would obviously know it wasn't his, but he insisted on trekking it back to the car. Since you know I LOVE to saturate this little 'ol blog with pictures, here ya go:

So, we are in the midst of state testing and tomorrow is our last day.  My kiddos have been working SO hard and I have a little surprise for them on Friday...pizza!  In all honesty, it's because they did well on their MAP test.  Well, let me rephrase.  They did well on the Math MAP.  Reading, not so much.  Several of mine went down on their reading.  How do you go down?!  I just don't get it.  It was very disheartening!  They all went up overall for the year, but since the winter, some were down.  In fact, some had already met their goals in the winter and then went down so much, their goals were not met!  Please tell me I'm not the only one who had kids regress from winter to spring?!

Now, onto the Giveaway!

I was SO excited when I checked my e-mail last Friday and Staci from Let's Teach Something asked me if I wanted to be part of her Giveaway.  Me?!  Heck to the yes!  I was so excited and honored!

Seriously, check out who all is involved!

So here's what you can win:




Seriously, check out that loot.  I know everyone ♥'s the Teacher Tipster and it's a retired DVD.  Plus, you can win a total of $20 in TPT gift certificates and a $25 iTunes gift card!  I totally wish I could enter :)  

So, wanna enter?  Head on over to Staci's blog.  The giveaway closes on May 14 which is her (and my!) birthday :)

Hope everyone had a great Wednesday!  I managed to work out (30 Day Shred) despite the power going out twice and my dog attacking me the entire time because of the thunder!  I am trying to be healthier and work out more since we have been talking about the B word more...baby!  Otherwise, I totally would've taken all of that as a sign and sat down on the couch and watched TV!

Happy Thursday (which is practically Friday, right?!)
