Thank you treats (is what McDonald's is calling this promotion) is now through January 15 McDonalds will be offering all teachers one of their free bakery items. Teachers can choose an apple fritter, cinnamon roll, or blueberry muffin, and any size roast coffee. If you're a teacher, you can redeem your free item by showing your valid school ID. You can get a free item once a day until January 15.

And I personally want to say thank you to all the teachers in the world, especially my girls' teacher’s past and present. All of you have taught my girls so much, and to see them grow in reading, math, art, science, it just amazes me, and I know that is do to all of you, their teachers. So, thank you so much!

Take a minute to thank a teacher this week, those two words have so much meaning in them.
