Michigan Blogger Bash

Hey Chicksters,

Oh my goodness - I had such a great time at the Blogger know something? We have some awesomely cool teachers in Michigan!!!!

{And I didn't get lost!}

I walked in and told the hostess I wasn't quite sure who I was looking for - she says "A group of sweet, wonderful, kind, talented, lovely, cool, blogger chicks?" {My heart was beating so loudly, it was hard to hear - but I think that's probably what she said}

I rounded the corner and there they were...I heard them before I saw them.  HA!  Just kidding - but we were a gabby group!

We went around the table sharing lots of different things - your wildest kid moment, what technology you have in your classroom, are you married, do you have kids, how long have you been teaching....lots and lots of topics flying every which way good thing Andrea pulled out her notebook to do some note taking. No kidding - she doesn't go anywhere without her note taking tools.  Not to be showed {Shown? Showed?} up, Rachel whipped out her notebook AND her purple flair pen...

Don't think for a minute, Rachel, that your purple flair went those things! Beth tried nabbing it - but I told her that wouldn't be right. 
Lots of giggles and stories that made my jaw drop.  Which teacher do you think has been spit on, kicked, chased a little one out a window and has been called every name in the book?  There wouldn't be just one in the bunch to tell a war story...

Jessica got the award for traveling the farthest...are you home yet?  I think she said she had a three hour drive.  Hopefully that field of deer I saw on my way home didn't decide to cross over to the other side as you were driving along.  Wait, I don't think you went my direction...right?  You went north? Or was it west?  Maybe east? No, I went east, I think.

Here's who was there...go check out their blogs if you haven't already!!!!

  5. OK, one of us needs to author a 'where are you" blog....and we could just add our names to the state...Jen R. will do it.... (once a "seed" has been planted, she can't let go)....just kidding, Jen


    1. haha! you're probably right! :P But it better be this week bc I'm going back to work next week, so who knows if I'll have time...ha!

  6. I should have known that flair pen was a hot commodity. Good thing I didn't bring my whole box of Flair pens and Sharpies, which I take a lot more places than most normal people would!!

    I had a great time! So happy I got to meet you IN REAL LIIIIIFFFFEE!!!

  8. It was such a FUN day! I'm glad you got to see all the deer on the way home- I didn't see any. And I'm super glad that all you did was SEE them. :)

    And you obviously made it home without getting lost forever since you're blogging again!

    Everyone was amazing- I so hope we can do it again soon!
