2 Link Ups in One Day!

It’s like I hit a blogging jackpot today!  2 fun linky parties to join all in one day!
First up, I am linking up with Lindsay with My Life as a Third Grade Teacher for her Bloglovin Giveaway!

I am sure you have heard all of the hype about Bloglovin.  Can I just say….believe the hype people!  I am loving the free app that you can put on your phone.  I LOVE that I can catch on with my favorite bloggers while I am waiting in line at Walmart (those lines are always sooooo long) or waiting for my girlies to finish dance class!  Head on over to bloglovin and follow my little ‘ol blog and you can be entered in my giveaway!  You can click on the link above or there is one in the sidebar!  After you enter, head on over to my TpT store and start shopping for your prize!

Next, I’m linking up with Covered in Glitter and Glue (don’t you just love that name!) for her What I’m Lovin Wednesday Linky!
Some things I’m lovin this week…….
1.  I finally won a blog giveaway for the first time this week and I was soooo excited!  I am loving the “Black and White Welcome Pack,” I won from Covered in Glitter and Glue!  My room is black and white with red accents and this little pack will fit in perfectly!

2.  Boredom has set in with my children on their non-dance days.  They are  at the studio ALL day on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.  On Mondays and Fridays they don’t know what to do with themselves!  And folks….this teacher momma is going to be out of money soon if we aren’t careful!  So, I have been looking for free things to do.  I am obsessed with all things HGTV, so when they started building the model homes for the new neighborhood going in by us I was SO excited to check them out.  Who knew that my girlies would be too!  We have been touring model homes now when they get bored!  I love getting decorating ideas and dreaming of homes I will never own!  My oldest daughter’s favorite part?  Trying to guess the prices!  It’s a win-win.  We are all having fun and the best part…’s free!
Here are two of my favorite ideas that we saw this week.

I am loving the chalkboard paint above the chair rail in the dining room.  So fun!

I only wish I had a mud room I could do this in.  I just know that this would magically help me be more organized!
