Hi, there friends! I am completely overwhelmed with excitement tonight! I’ve been waiting and watching and watching and waiting…and I just can’t keep the excitement in any longer! As I write this post, I am 4 little followers away from 200 and I’m loving it!

I am so grateful to each of you and want to take this opportunity to say “THANK YOU”!!

I wanted to do something where EVERYONE wins! Two ONEderful followers will receive a $20 Target gift card.  I will also be pricing every item in my Teachers Pay Teachers Store at just $2.00 for the next two days (June 29th and June 30th).  The sale will begin in the morning because I am hopeful that my 4 new friends will find their way over within the next two days!

A girl’s got to have goal’s right?

BUT….the bloggy goodness DOES NOT STOP THERE! Remember, I told you in a previous post that I wanted to do a play on the number 2?  Welllll…..instead of just one give away, I’m going to do 2!!  I don’t want to spoil the surprise so you’ll have to tune in tomorrow to see what the second one will be!

I promise, it’s a biggie!

You don’t have to do anything special to enter the give away.  If you would like to enter to win one of the gift cards, I would appreciate your following my blog and leaving a comment below telling me what aspect of reading or literacy you’re most interested in learning more about. I don’t know it all, but what I do know, I’m more than willing to share! And, I’m insatiably curious!

That’s it! Short, sweet and simple! ~Thank you! Tune in tomorrow….for give away #2!!
