Spring Blogger Meet-Up!

Thanks, Dana...I am your newest follower! 

I spent the last weekend of my Spring Break getting rejuvenated at the Spring Blogger Meet-Up!  

It was at the fabulous French Lick Resort.  My hubby and I had been at the resort in college for a formal, so it was a little nastalgic.  Here's a little throw back for you! 

When we arrived at the meet-up Holly had everything put together beautifully using Schoolgirl Style's decor.  It was ADORABLE...I cannot wait to use her stuff this fall!


Take a look at all these goodies!
A big shout-out to Vera Bradley, Erin Condren, SDE, Jamberry, Schoolgirl Style and Scentos...THANK YOU for supporting teachers!


The teacher tool swap was so much fun!  I was lucky enough to get full page labels.  HOW did I not know that these even existed!?  There are endless possibilities here.  Look out color printer, here I come! 

Check out what I won from our give-away...

LOVE the shirt Schoolgirl Style, thank you!

Here are my top 3 takeaways from our Tips & Tricks Session:
1.  Instagram is even better than I thought!  Check out the app "A Beautiful Mess" to add images and text on your pictures like the one above.  You can follow me on Instagram  here.
2.  Stop spending time thinking about the perfect topic to blog on and just blog!  Start sharing your experiences in the classroom and the rest will come.
3.  Collaborate.  Never underestimate the power of collaboration, it is an amazing thing!

I love, love, LOVE meeting other teacher-bloggers.  It's so fun to be with people who "get" you.  I had the opportunity to catch up with some old friends, Annie from 20 Something Teacher Tales, Heather from Teaching Through Turbulence, Jenny from Luckeyfrog's Lily Pad, Cierra from Adventures of Room 129 and many more.  I also met some great new friends, Stacey from Teaching Ever After and Mel from Seusstastic are two of my new friends that are pictured below.

Are you wishing you came to our meet-up to snag some of these goodies?  

Well, I have good news!  There is a HUGE give-away at the end of our hop!  Keep hopping through to find out where you can enter!

Hop on over to Kristen's Kindergarten to see more about our meet-up!
