Wet Toes, Winners and Pajamas

I just had a very serious conversation with my dog. It went like this:

Me: It's 4:00 in the morning - go back to sleep.
Sally: I want breakfast, I want breakfast, I want breakfast.
Me: There are only three days of vacation left, we're sleeping in - go back to sleep.
Sally: I want breakfast, I want breakfast, I want breakfast.
Me: I'm pulling the covers over my head and going back to sleep.
Sally: I want breakfast, I want breakfast, I want breakfast.
Me: I can't hear you . . .
Sally: Then I'll lick your toes until I get what I want.

Guess who won? Yup. It's 4:30 in the morning, Sally went back to bed after our trip to the kitchen and the back yard and I'm wide awake. At 4:30. On one of my last days of vacation!  She's lucky she's so stinkin' cute!

Since I'm up, I thought I would post the last daily winners from the Back to School Giveaway and announce the Grand Prize winner. Drum roll please . . .
     Congrats to Trinity, Amy, Jkey and Lorena! Your prizes are on the way. As for me? I plan to go back to sleep for a bit (do you hear that, Sally?) and then spend the day in my jammies doing a little shopping. If you haven't heard, Teachers Pay Teachers is having a HUGE sale today and tomorrow. With many sellers adding to TPT's 10% off, you can get some really great deals. I have 27 things on my wishlist so I think I'm going to have to whittle it down a bit. Maybe. Probably not. I'll likely get them all. Ahhh... shopping in my jammies . . .
     I'm offering an additional 20% off everything in my store, which you'll get on top of TPT's 10 % if you use the code BTS13. The sale runs today and tomorrow so slip on your coziest pajamas, fire up the computer and head straight to your wishlist!

  3. Me? Was I the grand prize winner? If so, WOW, YAY for me! Should I be looking for an email? If not, then I hope the other Lorena is having fun with her prize. ;)
    Hope Sally let you sleep. Our neighbor's dog woke us up around 2:30 with her barking this morning, too. She's usually barking for a good reason though, like seeing a squirrel or a possum, hehe, and is also cute so it's hard to stay mad at her for doing what dogs do. :)
