Winner and New Wall

Welllll ok I didn’t make my goal. Life gets in the way of goals sometimes. And so does laziness. And bloggers block.

I just didn’t have anything of importance to blog about this week.
I thought about blogging about my boring 4th plans, but that just seemed whiney, and boring.
I thought about blogging about all the work I have been doing in my room. That is now done (can I get an Amen) until August. 
But it took too much energy after all my cleaning, and arranging, and cleaning.
I thought about blogging about the stinkin heat. But it’s not THAT hot yet.
And I thought about blogging. But I didn’t. SO I missed my goal. SO there will be no giveaway.
That is something to blog about. So thanks to everyone who blogged, pinned, Facebooked, or shouted about my giveaway.
I have seen a LOT of amazing giveaways out there. I entered some. I never win. But I still enter.
Well ok onto MY winnerdrum roll please……………….
The winner is- The Polk-a-dot Owl
  ** I've been a follower, but I am loving the look and the new name!! So cute!! I don't have a blog but I pinned it on my Pinterest board. I hope that counts! :)**
And here is my random generator. 
He is very handy. He picked number 8. And she won! I could have done the whole number generator thingy. But it’s much more fun asking hubby dear. While he’s trying to listen to his scanner. Ready, willing, and able to fight fires at first tone. Which is how he spent the fourth. And I spent it alone L. But that is ok he was helping protect our community. And he did. Three times. Once from one of my past students. He is brave!
Finally here is a snapshot of my new wall. 
New painted wall. 
Old ugly white wall.

Mr. Principal said, “that is not a school color.” I said “you should have bought the paint.” Not really. But I thought it.
I just smiled. He was not mad....I think.  

Congrats Miss.Owl I'll be in touch!

  5. I'm a new follower! I love the new wall color. My principal said something like that to me when I painted my walls yellow. He told me I could paint it he never said a certain color. He likes it now.

  8. You and your thoughts about blogging sound like me and my thoughts about losing weight. lol I tell people if thinking about it did any good, I'd be anorexic. ;P

    Your husband looked thrilled to take part in your give away. At the end of the year, I sent home a reading comp page on firefighters for homework. The last question was would you like to be a firefighter and why. Some of their answers cracked me up.
    "No, because I am afraid of fire."
    "No, because the sirens are loud and would hurt my ears."
    "No, because I don't want to die."

    Some did say yes, but they weren't as funny.

    I love your wall too. You did a great job!
