Weekend in Review

I'm joining Brenda at Primarily Inspired to fill you in on my weekend at the Spring Teacher Blogger Meet Up!  I had the opportunity to join over 100 teachers in French Lick, IN for a weekend of fun and inspiration. #springteacherbloggermeetup2015

These letters were created as a "getting to know you" activity.
I was blessed to travel with these two wonderful women: Em from Curious Firsties and Jennifer from Songs and Stories in Second.  We met at Em's house Saturday morning and made the 3 hour journey to French Lick together.  Our drive was filled with stories, apps to share and book suggestions among other things.  There was some "non-teacher" talk too!

We got to spend the afternoon on Saturday with an amazing group of teachers.  It was great to listen to everyone share their stories, tips and tricks.

I loved the simple table centerpieces from Schoolgirl Style!
This girl typically has terrible luck in giveaways.  Terrible luck as in 10 prizes for 10 people and guess who is number 10.  Well, I'm thrilled to report that not only did I win something, but I won a free 1 or 2 day workshop from SDE!  Woohoo!

We can't forget about all the amazing teacher swag too!  Big thanks to Erin Condren, Scentos, Creative Teaching Press, Lakeshore Learning, and Vera Bradley for all the goodies!  You have the opportunity to win all these goodies too.  Be sure to enter at the bottom of this post!

After our afternoon of fun and learning, we set off for dinner and a little exploration of the hotel.  We also ventured over to West Baden to see the dome.  

After a little time to explore, we headed back to the room to get ready for the PJ Party.  Go Noodle and TpT  helped sponsor a great evening of fun!  We had the opportunity to decorate keepsake pillowcases, snack, chat and Go Noodle.

Such creative decorating!  That is a table.

Many of the OH bloggers from the PJ party at the photo booth.
It was a wonderful weekend of meeting new people and learning from one another.  It is so nice to talk to others who "speak the same language" and want to learn too!  It was totally worth the 5 hour drive to Em's house; thanks again for driving to my friend!
