linky parties, FLASH sale, and Holiday Coupons!

HOLD ON A SECOND...is it REALLY DECEMBER??? What in the world? This year flew by and so is this school year-but I am not complaining about that!

Since it is December 1st I am throwing a 50% off sale on my winter items in my Teacher's Notebook shop!
So, for today and tomorrow you can get these items half off!



And my NEW Christmas and Holiday NO HOMEWORK passes!
BUT, since I just made these and I LOVE to give things away, the first 5 people who comment will get the homework passes for FREE!

AND get this...ONE luck person can win ALL of this by questing this question correctly:)
Chick-fil-a is where I stopped and picked up lunch today. What did I get? Please be very specific with what you guess!

Time for a linky party! It has been a long time since I have done one of these! This one is so fun!
Second Grade Sparkle is having a "When I was in..." linky and I just wanted to join!

When I was in THIRD grade...
YIKES! Got to love 1990! The laser background was the coolest thing! Did you have this background? I don't remember a ton from 3rd grade except that I had the biggest.crush.ever on this boy named Rory! He was SO cute! The funny thing is, about a year ago he came up in my friends feed on facebook as "people you may know." He moved in 4th grade and I never saw him again. When I saw his picture on Facebook and realized he was friends with one of my friends...it was so strange! And I must admit...he is really cute! BUT, my husband...I melt just thinking about him:) 


So here are a few pictures of me now! I just couldn't pick one!
 I made this to see my progression in two things...my hair growth- and wow has it grown. And my weight gain! YUCK! I have been doing really well and so so proud of the 7 pounds I lost this month! Giving up Starbucks and getting back on track with my personal trainer has been very successful!

 My hubby and I on a sunset dinner cruise in Hawaii! I have some news to share with you all about Hawaii, but not just yet:)

And one of my FAVORITE wedding pictures! My cousin took this picture and it makes me smile every time I look at it.

Since it's December it is time for Farly's currently! Best way to start the month in my opinion:)
Mu husband snores SO LOUD! I am upstairs and he is downstairs with the TV on snoring! I know he worked 3rd last night and is tired, but jeesh! 

I am in love with Romain! She is my personal trainer, friend, and step instructor. I just adore her to pieces! She pushes me like no other, gives me tons of encouragment, and is always so positive and uplifting! 

You read that right...my hubby and I are leaving NC and moving! We are going back to my husbands homeland of Hawaii! We are moving in June/July. He might be there sooner providing when he can get a job but I will be there at the end of the school year! I am SO excited for this new chapter in our lives! We have a TON of planning, saving, and stuff to do beforehand. 

I really really really have been wanting a new watch. I fell in love with one at Kohls today but it is SO expensive! Should I get it??? 

It is a Citizen watch, normally $235 and I can get it on sale, with a coupon, and with taxes for $140. I have it on hold until tomorrow;)

I need a nap! Hubby and I get to spend some time together tonight and we are heading out! I can't wait! 

And my RAK. I sent the other day Ginger from Ginger Snaps a Starbucks gift card. I just wanted to tell her thank you for everything she has done for me! She was the reason why I started blogging! She helped me with any questions I had. She gave me advice and tips in how to do things. I know she also has needed a friend and some words of encouragement so I wanted to do something nice for her!


Well, that's it for my LONG post! 
So so sorry it was this long! 
I hope you are all having a great weekend!

Have a great Saturday!

  4. I think I made it into the first 5??? My guess is a Chic-Fil-A sandwich minus the pickle, some fries and a shake. That's what I would have gotten! :)

  8. Omg, Tonya, you were in 3rd grade in 1990? I was graduating from college, lol. I feel old now, haha! I am so happy you get to come to Hawaii. Angelia is heading here this month and I can't wait to meet her. We are going to have a Hawaiian blogger meet up. Hopefully there will be at least 5 of us, lol!

  10. So jealous about your move to Hawaii! My sister and husband have been there for the last three years but they are moving next month back to the mainland. As for Chick-fil-a, I'm sure you're going to miss it! I know I would! I'm going to guess that you got what I like to get, a #1 combo with a Diet Dr. Pepper! :)

  13. Congratulations on your move! How exciting!!!! I totally think you should buy that watch! You LOVE it and it's a deal so splurge girl! I LOVE the pic of you in your wedding dress! Stunning! I'd love to guess what you ate at Chick-fil-a but we don't have one around here so I don't have the faintest idea! I hope it was delish!

  18. Tonya, I bought a bunch of your stuff that I had been wanting during your sale at TN. Thank you for such a great sale and making it so affordable. I bought some things and went back the next day and bought more. I've been using lots of your ideas for multiplication. Also, I hope you buy the Citizen watch. It's beautiful and what a great deal! Use some of those earnings from TPT and TN.
    Thanks for everything.
