Rambling on....and a {contest}

I don't know about you, but summer has been going by SO quickly for me.  I cannot believe it is already in the double digits of July!  It seems like things are just flying by.  

You know how you start off the summer vacation with all of these grand plans?  And how you hope to get SO much done on your time off?  Yeah...I had those plans too.    So far, I have accomplished a few things (like the frame I shared with you and reading The Book Whisperer: Awakening the Inner Reader in Every Child ), but not all that I had hoped.  I have every intention to do it all, but then life gets in the way (namely this growing baby belly that seems to be draining my energy.) 

However, I have done a few things.  

1.  I joined Instagram.  It really is neat getting a glimpse into a more informal side of the bloggers that I follow.  I am still getting the hang of it...but if you are on Instagram, come join me!  
 











2.  At the beginning of the week, I bought many odds and ends for my room...though haven't actually gotten anything done with them!  So they are sitting in the closet......and they are all kinds of a mess....which is why the closet door is always closed....

3.  I....haven't done anything else.  What a bum I am, huh?  But for some reason you are still coming back to read my blog.   I was checking my stats the other day and, much to my astonishment, my little blog has gotten over 2 million views.  2,000,000!  That is CRAZY!!!!  


So in honor of your reading, I think it is time for our second Pin It to Win It contest.  

All you have to do is visit my TpT store OR my blog and pin ANYTHING you would like to own.  You can pin one thing.  You can pin everything.  Then, come back here, with the link to your pin, and tell me why you wanted that particular product.  If you pin more than one thing from my store, comment separately for each one (with the link to the pin and why you want it :) )  On Saturday, July 13, at 8pm PST, I will use a random number generator and pick FIVE winners.  Each of those winners will get the product that they pinned.  

That is it.  Easy peasy.  Just pin what you want, leave a comment, and if your number is picked, I will send you the pack.  Since there are 5 winners this time, your odds of winning are pretty good :)

  1. Over 2 million views is awesome! You were one of the first bloggers I ever followed! I have had lots of inspiration from you and your blog and that is why I keep coming back! Here is one product I would love to win!
