Summer Survival Giveaway!

May 26, 2015 16 Comments
Hello all!  Thank you so much for stopping by.  I hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend spent with friends and family.  This is a difficult but exciting time for so many teachers!  Some of us still have a few weeks before that sweet summer vacation that is so well deserved.  Yet others are off enjoying their much needed break!  Regardless of when your summer starts all teachers know we NEVER stop working despite the time out of the classroom.  For this reason and so many more my friend Diana from My Day in K and I are hosting a Summertime, Sweet Summertime Giveaway!

Teachers may have summer vacation but we are all too aware that we just do a year’s worth of work in 10 months.  It’s time to kick back and celebrate YOU!  Let us make the start of your summer easier with a chance to win not one but two gift cards to a teacher’s most frequented places!  By entering you will have a chance to win a $50 gift card to Target and a $50 gift card to Michael’s!  I don’t know about you but those two stores are my go-to for crafts, class gifts, classroom supplies, and also fun stuff for my home and wardrobe!  Small confession, I’ve had to steer clear of Target lately because it was getting WAY too acquainted with the inside of my wallet!
I hope this giveaway helps you kick start your vacation the right way.  Whether that’s spending the money towards stocking up on goodies for your classroom or yourself OR a little bit of both!  Make sure to complete the Rafflecopter below for your chance to win!
Don’t forget to follow along with our blogs too while you’re here.  Diana and I are so excited to be kicking off a summer linky party to keep us all connected throughout the summer vacation!  Each Tuesday we’ll be hosting a Tell All Tuesday Linky Party to give everyone an opportunity to stay connected and introduce themselves to the blogging community.  The school year gets so crazy and with so many new and wonderful bloggers coming onto the scene in the last few months we want the chance to get to know ALL of you!  

Come back Tuesday, June 10th for the first Tell All post!  Each week we’ll have a different topic to help get you blogging and a chance for us to all get to know each other throughout the summer months!  Link-up with us for the first one and Tell All About Yourself!  We can’t wait to learn more about you wonderful bloggers!
Thanks for entering our giveaway and good luck to everyone! I’d love to know what you would use the money towards if you win! Let me know in the comments below!

    Yay, so excited about the linky!
    My break is only from June 17-July29. Not complaining, but there's a lot to do during that time! I can totally sympathize with shopping – a new Target and Michaels opened up WALKING distance from my house – my budget is completely blown. Thanks for the giveaway! Jen

      I hope you link up with us Jen for the linky party! I don't know what I would do if both stores were within walking distance from my home. I would find any excuse to go every day, I know it! Have a great rest of your week.

    I would use the gift cards to buy books and other items from the dollar bin at Target…..I am a sucker for the dollar bin! At Michael's I would buy some craft supplies to keep me entertained over the summer!

      I know exactly what you mean about the dollar bin, Emily! I can never walk by it without looking around whether I need anything or not! Have a great rest of your week.

    Winning these would be absolutely awesome. The day after school ends I am moving to a new city and that means both a new classroom and apartment. There are a ton of must haves for the apartment that I could grab at target. But I'd of course have to grab two of the pink kid beach chairs I saw, that would be absolutely perfect for my classroom library. And Michaels is another one of my favorite places to shop. I would get tons of fun crafts for my classroom to make sure it is even more fun than it is now. Totally would love to win!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I'd buy little things for birthday bags. And Michael's often has books, so I'd pick up a couple!

  • Mrs. Brown June 2, 2015 at 12:02 am

    I think I forgot to tell you what I would get….I would get some new things to put in my prize box and of course and of course more tape, glue and paint. Thanks so much!
