It's My Birthday and I'll Post If I Want To....

This post is Soooo Late Today! I totally meant to do this earlier today but it's happening now. So here I go. With usual. When school starts back I'm pretty sure I'll have a lot more to say than now. Maybe. Let's Hope.

So on Facebook I'm having a little giveaway. You pick what you would like to win and leave a comment on FB and I'll pick a winner tomorrow and you will win it. That's it. Easy Peesy.

Become a follower too while you are there. Not too far from 200 on FB so maybe I'll hit that soon. That'd be great! For no reason really, just 'cuz! :)

Now that we are past all that little stuff....lemme tell ya about my birthday today! :)

Hard to believe I'm already 32. Crazy number. Anyway so started started off ok. Hubs was busy this morning (he sings with the outreach band for church) so he had to do that. (I sing by myself in the car with no one looking or listening b/c I'm that good----*note the sarcasm*).

Then he had to go to work. Major bummer. But mom and I went and did a little birthday shopping!!! I bought my first pair of Dansko's for 50% off (b/c honestly they are just too expensive for me to buy otherwise). I've heard a lot about them so I figured well it's birthday money and they are 50% off why not!

These are the ones I bought. This image is from Google (the link is on the picture) but I bought mine from a local boutique store nearby.

Can't wait to wear them!!

And check out this awesome little flag I bought!
Cute huh!?

Bought a couple more things today but no pics for ya now. Oh did find an AWESOME chevron infinity scarf for like $10 today. So of course had to get that. Love birthday shopping!

Then since the hubs had to work tonight a couple of friends took me to Olive Garden to eat. Yummy!! And of course they told them it was my birthday so I got a little candle in my dessert and everyone sang. How embarrassing but fun!

What a blast! Then how about this. Today was Teacher Appreciation day at our local Staples. So I went and put my name in a drawing (had NO idea what the prizes were but it's just fun to put your name on a ticket right?!) Well as we were leaving the restaurant, they called and I won something! 

Drove there and was told b/c my name was the first one drawn, I had my pick of 3 choices. So here's what I chose.
A bookcase. How cool! Not sure if I'll use it in my classroom (need to find room for it) or my hubs can use it in his shop. See what he thinks.

It's been a pretty good birthday. I need to link up with the Blogger exchange with pics but I'll do that tomorrow!! 

Oh and Teacher's Notebook is having a HUMONGOUS (that word looks weird all capitalized) back 2 school sale happening!!! Check it out. TONS of savings. Get the word out.

And of course all my items at my TN shop are 50% off for the next few days as well!
