Super Duper (Lucky) Day and a giveaway!

So today I was looking over my blog (which I've neglected for a couple of days since we've went back to school, I can't sleep---at all!, and my hubs works 3rd shift--and I can't adjust).......the list goes on and on.  I was delighted, however, to see that my great buddy, Betsey Dixon, over at Trendy Tech Tips, graciously awarded me the Liebster Blog Award!
I was like WHAT??????  She must have lost her mind!  Due to her lack of judgement, I am so very thankful, and I will accept MY FIRST AWARD with open arms!  I am just stunned I got an award! Thanks so much Betsey (make sure you check out her blog because she has some really neat stuff to check out relating to technology!) 

So this award recognizes new/hip/up-and-coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers.  (As you can see, I am WELL below 200...but 23 is much better than the 2 I had a month ago!!) are the rules to follow:
1.  Copy and post the award on your blog.  (I could check this one off really quick because I was super excited!)
2. Thank the giver and link back to them.   (Done!!!)
3. Reveal your Top 5 Liebster Blog Award Winner picks and leave a comment letting them know!  (Took a little time, but Done!)

So here goes...I'm awarding the five blogs listed below the Liebster Blog Award:
1. Haley over at Following Optimism
2. Delighted over at First Grade Delight
3. Amy over at Krazy About Kiddos
4. Lisa over at Stories From Second
5. Miss. Toffee at Miss. Toffee's Class

Congrats to all of you for your hard work and dedication, both in the classroom and on your blogs!!!

The second great thing that happened today was I WON a giveaway from Jennifer over at First Grade Blue Skies.

It is a super-cute activity pack for Valentines Day, and I can't wait until this day of love to break out these fun things!!!  Thanks again Jennifer!  Head over to her blog and find out how you can get your own copy!

Finally, over at Mrs. Bainbridge's Class

Christina Bainbridge is being super nice and giving away one copy of every flippy-book she has ever made to one lucky winner!  Click on her button above, which will take you to her page, to find out how to register!

Thanks again for following!  As you can tell, it's been a stupendous day!
