Winner and Thankfulness

Well I have a winner of my random drawing to name my new surfboard. It's one of my favorite bloggy buddies  Traci from over at Dragonflies in First!  Traci gets to pick two items from my TpT store:)

Dragonflies in First

I had lots of people stop by and comment on a name for my new board and I loved so many of them.  It is really difficult to name something you really like!  Some of the names mentioned reminded me of kids I have had or people I know so that cancelled out quite a few!!

These are the ones that I liked the best.  Taffy, Bubbalicious and Lola. I'm weird  I know, but Candy reminded me of a girl I grew up with that I was not very fond of, lol!  Then yesterday one of my students came back from a trip to Santa Cruz.  His dad was judging a surf contest there so the whole family went. (What a life huh?) He brought me this. 

I think it was a sign!  So Taffy is my new board and I am very thankful for having her!


I thought it would be appropriate to link up with  Lyndsey at A Year of Many Firsts and tell about all the wonderful things I am thankful for.

  1. It's alright, I get names being spoiled by people... somehow you just can't shake that association! Taffy seems like a really cute name for a really cute board!

  2. Taffy is a great name for your board! You are thankful for many wonderful things and I enjoyed seeing all your pictures. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!!
