Fab GiveAway from Fantabulously Frugal

Hey! I just found a great blog and wanted to share her great giveaway. Fantabulously Frugal is hosting a Favorite Things Giveaway. She has great picks- some new to me and oh so cute! I love the fact that the giveaway is an eclectic group of really fun items. Hop on over to her site and let her know I sent you- that way we both get an extra entry!

A Steal

I recently purchased (downloaded) Microsoft 2007 for my new netbook. I found a great deal- Microsoft Ultimate Steal- MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, One Note, Groove, Publisher, Access and InfoPath 2007 for $59.95! I ended up buying the backup DVD for an additional $14.00- even though the netbook does not have a CD ROM. You need to go to the site and see if you qualify...the deal is for students only- However, as a school Principal, I used my school address and I qualified. So if anyone is looking for a great deal check it out here.

As a school administrator, I am participating and will be required to complete the lessons and learning objectives, just like the teachers- the only difference is that I get to select which classroom and which group of students will receive my lesson. We have a full 5 days (minus 2 days of travel) of wonderful sights and sounds. Our itinerary includes: Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Harlem, Lower East Side, etc... Of course we have lots of free time- so I plan on going to Macy's, Lilly and Central Park.Once again I am asking for suggestions- please share with me your NYC must do's! I h…
