Spring Teacher Blogger Meet-Up

Whew!  Ya'll I am wiped out!  I just got back from the Spring Teacher Blogger Meet-Up.  Talk about INCREDIBLE!  I can't even put into words how awesome this weekend was.  We had 54 teachers and bloggers who came from all over the country to meet, on their "own dime and own time" (great quote Amanda Pauley!), simply because they are passionate about teaching and learning!  People, it doesn't get any better than this!  Trust me, I am going to be blogging about ALL of the details of our meet-up soon... but for tonight I will just leave you with some pictures and highlights!

 We started out our scheduled activities with a luncheon meet-up!
Yummy food, "teacher tool" swap game, and awesome blogging and 
TPT "Tips & Tricks" session! 

We were overwhelmed by our INCREDIBLE sponsors and their 
GENEROUS give-away gifts!  
Every attendee with home with at least this many goodies...TRUE STORY! 
Vera Bradley bags included!  Oh yah!

After the blogging sharing session, we all traveled to a variety of awesome restaurants to dine and unwind....then we met at the West Baden Hotel (all part of the French Lick Resort properties).
YES.. this is a picture of the lobby area!   The dome is AMAZING! 

We all grabbed some fun beverages and made our own teacher-blogger-chat-circle!
It was AWESOME!  We just hung out under the dome, sharing ideas, getting to know each other...and just plain having a blast! 

 Gotta' love the dome pics!

I'm still in awe of all the incredible people I met!  It's not every weekend 
that ya' make 50+ new BFFs!  #bloggingfriendsforever

Oh... there is so much more to tell!  But stay tuned!!
Not to let the cat out of the bag, but there is something EPIC brewing as a result of this meet-up! 
{And it's something epic for YOU, our followers!}

Well, it's off to bed for me... but if you're anxious to hear more about this incredible weekend,
feel free to hop on over to some of my best-ies' blogs to heat what they have to say about the weekend!

Monday, March 10, 2014 = LOVE

Hello teacher friends!  I'm bursting at the seams with excitement!   Look what just arrived at my house....

I had to pinch myself a few times before I believed my eyes!   YES! It is a "dream box" chock full of products!   SO. EXCITED.

So here is the story behind this "dream box."  A few months ago, after attending the Nashville Teacher Blogger Meet-Up, hosted by the incredible Greg Smedley ( and Elizabeth Hall (, I decided that I just couldn't stand to wait until July, at the SDE National "I Teach K" Conference to see my blogger peeps!  So, I began to plan a Spring Teacher Blogger Meet-Up, here in Indiana.   The incredible staff at the French Lick Resort and Casino graciously offered to work with me to make the event happen.   Within a week, I had the location secured, date chosen (March 22-23rd), and I began to invite teacher bloggers across the country to join me.  Well, everyone knows that you can't throw a party like this without some awesome give-away prizes... so I began contacting some of the best education-related companies I could think of to ask them if they would like to sponsor our little teacher blogger event. contacted me immediately and said they would LOVE to support teachers and send some give-away goodies.   The staff was so incredible to work with!  They truly wanted to send products that the attending teachers would LOVE!   Let me tell you people, they hit the nail on the head! Check out some of the goodies they sent....

First of all, let me tell you that THIS GIRL, was floored to find out that decided to spoil me with a few personalized products for organizing the blogger event.   {So sweet!}  They also thought that other teachers may want to see what the products actually look like when personalized.   So the pics below are of my especially-special goodies!

 Check out this epic acrylic clipboard!
I wish you could touch it!  Serious craftsmanship here!  
This baby is the REAL deal!

 Of course, knows that every cute clipboard must have a classy notepad to accompany it!  
(Had to include this pic, below, too.  This is the BACK of the notepad.  
Proof that every little detail is impeccable!)

And... what about this gem?  {Be still my heart!!!}
Folks... I have heard many of my FAV bloggers brag about their Erin Condren teacher planners.  I've checked them out outline.   I even added one to my official teacher "dream list."  

I can't put into words how AMAZING this planner is!
So... Let's just start with a little photo tour...

(Note:  There are many, many more types of pages.  I'm just showing a few!)




 (Hey!  They really DID personalize this planner! I'm sure the "Keep it Together" pocket page was designed JUST for me!  LOL)

 Now, just to be clear... the rest of the goodies in the "dream box" are for some lucky Spring Teacher Blogger Event attendees!   

Who will be going home with this lil' darlin"???

Oh... and in typical style, they have sent all the PERFECT accessories too!

Snap In Bookmark!                                    Colorful EC Markers!
