Michigan Blogger Bash

Hey Girlies,

Tomorrow is the big day...


I would like each and every one of you to say a quick prayer that I do not get lost and arrive to the bash MORE than fashionably late.  I get lost a lot. We're not talking just a little lost.  We're talking, never make it to a friend's rehearsal dinner lost.  We're talkin' drive an entire hour WEST when I was supposed to be driving EAST.  I blame that one on the bun in my oven and the doughnut I was snarfing down.  I've arrived to work late because I was trying a route I didn't normally take and got lost.  Yes, I'm directionally challenged {hair challenged, fashion challenged...} but you love me anyway, right?

I am going to bring my GPS but that doesn't really mean anything, because half the time I swear it has to be wrong, I freak out, and I either call my hubster or a friend in a panic.  I have issues, don't I?

 If you don't have anything planned tomorrow at, say, 3 o'clock you should think about joining us.  We'll be at Applebees in Lansing.  You can email Amy at The Resource{ful} Room for info. 

One more thing...

I'm saying toodles to my Elmo {Actually I'm passing him on to a friend} and buying one of these guys...

Click on the pic to take you to the IPEVO website.
It's an IPEVO.  My media specialist showed me one and I was hooked. Oh my goodness girls.  It's 70 dollars vs 700 dollars {cost of an Elmo} - it's smaller so it takes up less space and the resolution/quality is every bit as nice as that of an Elmo.  You can pull the lense off of the stand {It's the same feel as a small microphone} and point out kids sitting crisscross applesauce, you can look at things on the ceiling, the floor...any which way.  So flexible!!!!!  You can take pictures just like you can with the Elmo. LOVE this thing!!!! 

If you've always wanted a document camera but don't have the big bucks to fork out - I'm telling you, this is the route to go.  The only "shortfall" is that it has a USB hookup so you have to plug it in to a computer rather than right into your projector or television.

Okay...must go get my beauty sleep.  Don't want to scare any bloggy friends away tomorrow!

  1. Have fun tomorrow! As a directionally challenged person I always do a reconnaissance drive-by so I don't get lost on the actual day of the event. Good luck!

    And I have no idea what kind of a doc camera I'm supposed to get, but at this point, I'll just take whatever.
