Shut the Front Door!

First of all, I'm so amazed at the new traffic over here.  I'm humbled that you like me enough to stick around. 

Remember, I still feel like this:

Like every single day that I open up my blogger and read my comments and see who is visiting.

When I started this adventure back in October, I had no idea how much blogging would change me.  I've "met" such wonderful new friends here that truly inspire me each and every day.

Tonight when I got home from a lovely dinner over at my parents' house for Father's Day, {Holla- Dad and super-hubby...they don't read this, so really I didn't have to "Holla" at them.}  I opened my email and was completely blown away with this from one of my ultimate FAV*OR*ITE teacher supply companies, Really Good Stuff:

Y'all...............SHUT THE FRONT DOOR!



Yes, now I really do sound like Sally Field.  Somebody slap me now!

Here's a clip of the email:

The email said the voting ended this Friday, June 22nd, but the website says July.  So, I'm not sure.  But, if you vote now (well, starting tomorrow), that would be fantastic!

OK-off to bed with tons of happy dreams!

I'll see you tomorrow with my Monday Made It and Freebies link ups!  I've been busy while my children were away.
