PA Blogger Meetup 2014

Two posts from me in one day?  How can this be?!  LOL.  I'm just so excited because I was able to meet up with some fellow TpT sellers and bloggers in Hershey, PA today!  I love Hershey, PA!  Hershey has outlets and of of course, chocolate!  You can't go wrong visiting this town!

I was a little nervous at first making the hour and half ride to meet people I've never met before!  It was like that feeling you have when you go on a first date! LOL.  However, I am SO happy that I made the trip because I truly met some fantastic people!  They were SUPER nice and fun to learn from!  Here is a picture of us...


From left to right is Angie from Rulin' the Roost, Wendy from Readwithmeabc, me, Andrew from Mr First Grade, and his wife!  

Here's another picture of me and the lovely Wendy who took the time and effort to organize this meet up!

She even made us all these goodie bags!  How cute?!



Even though I was nervous about making the trip to Hershey, I'm SO glad I did.  I learned lots (especially about Instagram!) that I can't wait to put into practice.

Our next meet up won't be until next summer...  I wish we all lived closer :(.  Until then, I'm excited to keep in contact with them in the virtual world as well as other TpT sellers and bloggers that I meet along the way :).

Back to School... Kind of!

Hi All!

It's been awhile since I last posted.  Where does the time go?!

My classroom has had its yearly summer "bath" the other week, so it has been ready for me to go in and do my thing!  Now, what teacher in their right mind would want to go into their classroom to set it up when they still have a month and a half of summer break?  Well, that's me! LOL

Before you think of me as a nerd, I have a good excuse!  I leave soon for a trip to Mexico with my boyfriend, and when I get back, I leave for a cruise to Alaska!  By the time I get back from all these trips, it will be back to school time, and I didn't want to be stressed to get the room done!

Anyhow, I'm blogging because every year I want to change up the layout of my room somehow. I've been in it for 11 school years, so it's nice to make changes!  I had no set plan going into my room the other day BUT then I saw it!  What is it?  A picture.  A picture from where?  A picture from Pinterest, of course!  As I was pinning some of my TpT products I came upon this picture of two filing cabinets put together to be used as a magnetic board.  Why have I never thought of that?  How awesome is that?  The big ugly filing cabinets have been put to use!  Below is not the picture I saw on Pinterest; it's my filing cabinets!



This is of course a work in progress!  The filing cabinets picture that I saw on Pinterest had a cute border around it.  I'm not sure I have enough room for that, but it's a possibility, of course!  When I get my classroom completely set up, I plan to post a few pics.  I love to see pictures of other classrooms, so I'd love to share mine!

If you're still on summer break- enjoy!  If you're not, I hope your year has began with a great start!

Thanks for stopping by!  Until next time...
