Celebrating 1000 Giveaway!!!




I am so excited to tell you that I have reached 1000 followers!!! I started my blog in October of 2011 not really quite sure what I was doing. I didn't have a clue what to write about and I think I changed my blog name about 10 times before deciding on the first name, "Cheezy Toes & Crooked Rows". Yes, that was the first blog name I published on this blog!! I named it to resemble my quirky rhyming tendencies and pet-peeves while teaching. 

Cheezy toes was what I used to call Cheetos. Whenever the kids ate Cheetos, I asked why they would ever eat Cheezy Toes (-; They would have fun correcting me... Crooked rows were my buggest pet peeve. I did not have carpet on my classroom floor while I taught Kinder and I constantly had to fix and straighten the rows. It was like the desks and chairs were in the ocean while I stood on the beach...and I would have to round them up and bring them back as the tide moved them further away from their starting point. 

After two days with this name, I canned it and I came up with 3AM Teacher...mostly because my husband said...well, you never sleep...it is 3AM and you are still up working on a blog name...well, that stuck with me and I loved the idea. My first two blog posts were pitiful; however, it is a strange feeling not knowing who you are writing to or where your words go once you click publish.

I have met so many wonderful people over the last few months and I am really excited that I will get an opportunity to meet a few of them next week!! I don't know what I would have done without all of your support and friendships...being able to sit down at my desk and immediately feel like I am in a room full of people..makes not teaching this year not so bad. There are no words to describe how wonderful this environment is. 
We encourage each other,
Help one another,
listen to one another,
laugh with each other & cry with each other!
You are all my daily inspiration and instead of having all of you complete a bunch of tasks, I am giving you a colorful clip art set...

Thank you for bringing so much color to my life!!!
Grab your gift....

but that is not all...
Kathi, Stephany & Stephanie from 
Primary Possibilities
contacted me a couple of days ago (after seeing that I was trying to figure out what I would do to celebrate 1000 followers) and asked if I needed anything to add to a giveaway for reaching 1000. I thought it was very kind of her, so I thought...well, I can have a little giveaway too...
