Louisiana Teacher Blogger MEETUP and a SWAG BAG

I have been soooo M.I.A since school let out for the summer!
Get it? 

I have been too busy living life and loving life to blog, but BOY have I been inspired!....because this past Saturday I attended the first annual Louisiana Teacher Blogger Meet Up!!

It.    was.    so.   much.   fun! 

Big shout out to Jasmine at Buzzing with Mrs. McClain who made it all happen, to Jessica at Pride and Primary who hosted us at her fabulous school in Baton Rouge, Mayfair Lab School, and Kristi from Pelicans and Pipsqueaks who also shared the load. You were all hostesses extraordinaire! 

So many community sponsors pitched in to make it a big success!! 

There was literally no detail overlooked, and everyone won a door prize! 
I scored this super cute pencil door sign from the talented Tallahassee Sunday.  
I think it will make the fact that I have to move rooms a little less painful :) 

I was blown away by everyone’s enthusiasm.  
So many die hard teachers and brilliant minds in that room. 
Not to mention that their love for what they do- and for their students- was obvious.  

Jasmine was very gracious in asking me to present to the group.  
I was like.... WHAT?  ME?  WHY? 

Slight panic and extreme procrastination set in, but I whipped up a little presentation.

Being a MAC person in a PC world, I had some technical difficulties, but my audience was so lovely that it didn’t matter.  

In the end I just shot from the hip.  

I mean, us educators are pros at winging it, right? 

I  shared about my experience with blogging, selling on TpT,   
OH, and pinterest, and facebook and instagram. 
OH MY!! 

  I hope I left them with some useful tidbits :) 
To be honest, I could talk about that stuff all day. 

Jessica from Pride and Primary also gave fun and informative presentation about blogging.  It really made me want to kick my blogging up a notch! 

The best part was just hanging out, talking and picking each others’ brains!
 I think we made some new friendships that will carry on. 
Check me out with Michelle Lendahand from Lendahand's Printables, and Darleen Chautin from First Grade Love 

That day I took away: 

1) a wonderful feeling of comradery

2) a swell of pride about being a Louisiana blogger
3) some cool new friends

I hope to get together with this fabulous group again soon! 

Before we left we exchanged gifts.  I hit the jackpot with mine.  

{Jasmine, you did NOT stick your own $5-$10 rule!} 

Then we were showered with some amazing SWAG!

Wanna be all decked out like us?
