Many of these friends were in Vegas this week and can I say it was so wonderful and amazing to finally meet them!! I cannot describe the feeling and camaraderie we all felt. It was like we were old friends who hadn't seen each other in awhile!!
I am pretty sure I have added a few more wrinkles to my eyes from all of the laughing and smiling!!
This tiny collage is only a snippet of all of the amazing people I met!! I was also thrilled to finally meet up with all of my collaborative blog buddies from the Primary Chalkboard!
Many of us roomed together and it was like a big slumber party filled with tons of laughs and giggles.
I was also able to attend the LOVE show at the Mirage with Tanja from Journey of a Substitute Teacher , Jen from Hello Mrs. Sykes and Jessica from Second Grade Nest!! It was my first Cirque show and I loved every minute!!
The highlight of the trip was our final day at the TpT conference.
I believe there were over 500 teachers/bloggers here and it was truly amazing!!
Paul Edelman the founder of TpT was our first speaker and he was such a good sport and took a picture with Paul on a stick! I was roommates with the hilarious ladies who took all the fun photos!!
If you are on instagram you can check out his adventures in Vegas at #imwithpaul.
Paul gave an amazing speech about how he founded the company and what it has become today. Truly inspiring!
Next came the sweet and humble Deanna Jump.
There was not a dry eye in the house after she spoke!!
I spent the day attending sessions from some of my favorite sellers and chatting with so many teachers.
I came home with lots of new friends and memories that will last a lifetime!
I also came home with some pretty awesome swag!!
It was a great way to wrap up my summer and get me ready for a brand new year!! Yup, next week I head back into my classroom to start setting up, but kids don't start until August 1st.
So this week I plan to finish my personal lesson planner and finish a product that I have been working on. Hopefully I will get in some surf time as well ;)
I hope your week was a fabulous one as well!! I have linked up with A Burst of First. Head over to her blog to check out everyone's adventures!!
