Spring Blogger Meet-Up

I took the plunge out of my shy box this weekend and went to my very first blogger meet-up at the absolutely stunning French Lick Resort. There were more than 50 teachers and bloggers there because we wanted to be! This was not a professional development seminar or a way to earn credits. It was simply a meet-up because we LOVE what we do! I wonder how many down state can say they have done that. :) Anyway, this was such an amazing experience and I am so happy I put myself out there.

We started off the day with a luncheon, teacher tool swap, and a TPT & blogging sharing session.  I learned so much!!  I had no idea how important colored pens were to have! LOL!

Then came the giveaways!  Wow, Holly from Mrs. Ehle's Kindergarten Connections out did herself planning this event and getting all sorts of goodies to giveaway.  AMAZING!!!  We got a bag from Vera Bradley, new never released Scento markers and pens, Erin Condren gift certificates, Jamberry nail wraps, and SO MUCH MORE!

I brought my husband along, so I decided to have dinner with him, Mel D from Seusstastic, and her hubby.  This was our first overnight getaway since our son was born 4 1/2 years ago.  We didn't even know what to do with all of the quiet time.  The best part is we were able to carry all of our luggage in with ONE trip.  Parents you know what I am talking about!  You have the pack-n-play, the extra suitcases, bag full of snacks, etc.  IT WAS SO NICE!    After dinner we spent a whopping $20 bucks in about 30 seconds flat in the casino.  Bummer!

Then we all decided to go join the blogger group at the West Baden Hotel for some adult beverages and a "light show".  I use the term light show VERY loosely.  It was a little bit of a let down, but so worth going and hanging out with some very cool people.  I even got to meet Mr. Greg from Kindergarten Smorgasboard.  I really should NEVER be allowed out of my house.  I ALWAYS make a scene.

 The next morning my husband and I woke up early and went in the outdoor hot tub.  It had to of been in the 30's outside, but the hot tub was magnificent and the PERFECT way to end our getaway weekend!

Stay posted because we have something planned as a result of our meet-up.  You won't want to miss it.
