Happy New Year...a sale and some resolutions!

Happy New Year, everyone - and happy bloggiversary to me! I realized the other day that I began this blog on January 1, 2012. Spedventures will be 1 year old in just two days! This past year has been wonderful - I have met friends (Michigan ladies, when is our next meetup?!), blogged about some fun things in my classroom, even sold a few products in my store...and most importantly, I've grown so much as a teacher - so many wonderful ideas and resources from all of you. I am still feeling newly energized and inspired in my teaching, and I owe that to teacher blogs...So, thank you all! Thank you, thank you, thank you.

To say both Happy New Year and Happy Bloggiversary to Me, I'm having a sale! Click the image below to get 20% off at my TPT store from the 31st through Jan. 3:

I'm also linking up The Teacher's Cauldron's New Years Linky. I'm not big on a lot of New Years resolutions, so I really like this idea of just a couple:

My personal resolution is to work out at least 3 times per week. I have not been working out regularly at all over the past several months and I can tell! I have tried more strict "working out" resolutions in the past (5 or 6 days per week, etc.) and it hasn't happened. 3 days is doable for me, and bonus - I will feel great if I surpass that goal on a given week! I am looking forward to being healthier in the new year, and at the same time not stressing too much about getting there.

My blogging resolution is to comment more on blogs! I used to do this a lot more. I do always read my blog roll...and I tend to bookmark posts to go back and comment on, but never do...I just need to comment "in the moment" rather than saving it. I get such joy out of receiving comments on my blog; I would love to be better at leaving comments myself.

    1. Wouldn't that be great, Holly?! There must be some way to combine blogging and working out...
