200 Followers Freebie, Blog Issues & Basement Make-Over

Yesterday, every time I tried to get on my blog, I got an error saying my blog was infected with malware....what the bleep?  I don't even know what that is!!  After hours of research and some nice friendly advice from Top Teachers I think I have it fixed.  This morning I got on and everything seemed fine....and nice surprise I reached 200 followers!  : )

To celebrate I am giving away my new TPT product,  A to Z intro pages, for today only!  Before I go to bed tonight it will go back to $2.00 so grab it now if you're interested and thank you for following my humble little blog!  Click here to go to my TPT store and get your feebie!

On another note, and totally unrelated to teaching, is my basement makeover!  Here is a picture of it before we even owned the house:

This winter my husband I and painted up a storm and now it looks like this:

It is, of course, a man cave!  You can see all  my hubbies hobbies in one room (he is in basement heaven).  

We have the Harley wall (the pink guitar is my daughter's!):

The car wall:

The Wet Bar:

And my favorite part of the room make over was the license plate wall:

We pulled the license plate theme to the other side of the basement as well:

It feels really really good to have that checked off our list.  Well, there is one more part.  There is a small entrance room to the basement with a movie theme.

We are waiting for our movie posters to arrive.  On the way, thanks to Amazon and on-line shopping, are posters from the movies ET, Star Wars, Blue Brothers, Indiana Jones, Goonies and Back to the Future.  Yes, we are a product of the 80's. . . and ok with admitting it!

Thanks for checking out my very NON- teaching related post!  Don't forget to get your will be available for 10 more hours!
