My Week In Vegas

Hi everyone,

I'm here to tell you all about my trip to VEGAS! 
In one word... WOW! What an AMAZING experience! 
I got to meet so many fantastic people and I was truly inspired by the presentations that I attended. I came back home with so many ideas flowing in my mind and I can't wait to get started on them!

Allow me to share a few pictures with you...

My buddy Nikki from Today In Second Grade insisted that we take pictures 
in this photo booth. It was lots of fun ;)

I loved all the presentations that I attended. 
I learned SO much and was very happy to meet these fabulous ladies!

I still can't believe we got to meet Cara and Deanna! They were the very first bloggers that I followed and I was blown away by how kind they both were. 
Their presentations ROCKED!

Rachel from What The Teacher Wants was adorable! She has inspired me so much ever since she started For Blogness' Sake and I couldn't wait to meet her!

Erin from Kleinspiration was also one of the very first bloggers that I followed. Her presentation was my FAVORITE and I can't wait to get started on some things that she shared with us!

Kid Adsit from KinderGals was a hoot! This lady is super smart and just SO funny! 
It was an absolute pleasure to get to know her.

 The Freebielicious girls had a booth at the Exhibit Hall and I was very happy to meet a few of them. 
They were were super sweet!
I was so glad to finally meet Kassie from Mrs Hoffer's Spot :)

We attended 14 workshops in all. Crazy, right?! My brain is on overload and I really need to sit down and go through my notes to make sense of it all. I can't wait to implement all these ideas in my classroom. Stay tuned for a few blog posts on what I learned from these super smart ladies ;)

This trip wasn't ALL work... 
We did take ONE day off to go visit the Grand Canyon. We had a blast :)

How beautiful is that?!

I just couldn't resist taking a few selfies... Hehehe!

My favorite part of the trip? The TPT conference, of course!

I FINALLY got to meet Paul, the founder of TPT! 
This man has completely changed my life and I will forever be grateful for the opportunities that he has given me!
His speech brought me to tears... I was blown away with how much he truly appreciates us TPT sellers. It was clear that TeachersPayTeachers is very important to him and that he is very proud of what it is becoming. 
Sorry about the bad picture... Not sure what happened 
with my buddy's phone on this one!

Well, my friends, I have a GAZILLION more pictures from my trip but I won't bombard you with them all! HA!
I have been sharing lots of them on my Instagram and Facebook so make sure you follow me there if you want to see more ;)
Also, if I took a picture with you, please send it to me or TAG me on it. Seems like I am missing a few friends in my camera roll...

This Vegas trip was absolutely amazing... I loved every minute of it! 
I finally got to turn some virtual friendships into true friendships and that was just phenomenal!
I am looking forward to the next one!

I'll be back this week to show you what I bought at the Exhibit Hall. 
You all KNOW you want to see my goodies so stay tuned! ;)

Ok... one more picture before I go!
This little guy was SO happy to see his mommy after what was a very long week for him. He stuck to me like glue all night and I love every second of it! Ha!
