My Big "Fat" Italian Heart...And a $50 Giveaway!

Wow, it has been a BUSY week and busy might be an understatement...hehe :)  I am so excited to announce that we have hit over 200+ followers!  THANK YOU SO MUCH :)  Before I get to this great giveaway, I have to share the hilarious and sweet story that lead up to it.

As I mentioned, it has been a tough and busy week so when we were lining up today it warmed my heart when one of my sweeties came up and gave me a big hug.  After the hug, he tugged on my sleeve and here's what happened...

Mrs. Lizak: "Thanks so much for the hug!  I really needed that today."
Student: "Mrs. Lizak, can I tell you something?"
Mrs. Lizak: "Sure. What do you want to tell me?"
Student: "My brother says you're fat."
Mrs. Lizak: (Obligatory answer)  "Thank you for letting me know."
Student: (Tugs on sleeve again) "He says you're fat because your heart is so BIG."

Insert {AWWW}!  So being a good Italian girl with a big, "fat" heart we had to make this giveaweay extra special for our AMAZING followers!  You know you guys rock, right?!?!  Here's the deal...We're giving away 2 $25 gift cards!  You can choose from TPT, Amazon, Lakeshore Learning, or the uber FAB Target!  Next Wednesday, we will randomly select two winners and each winner will win a $25 gift card of their choice!  So, you have double the chances of winning!  Sounds pretty sweet to me :)   Details are below, but just leave a comment for each entry with your email address as listed.  Good luck friends!!!
