What happens in Vegas....

I got home the other night from an amazing 4 days in Las Vegas, attending the I Teach K Conference and hanging out with some of my bloggie besties!
 
I really am bad with technology!
I took a lot of pictures on my phone during the day.....but then my phone died....nearly every night!
So thank goodness I have some great friends that also took pictures!  Some of the photos below are courtesy of Rachelle and Natalie (What the Teacher Wants), Holly (Mrs. Ehle's Kindergarten Connections), and Kaci (Mrs. Hoffer's Spot).
 
Here is a picture of me and my roommates (there were 5 of us in all - Tanya Solano, Katie Mense, Crystal Radke, Sarah Marcum) on our way to the hotel...riding in style!  And I couldn't wait to meet the rest of the bloggers that night!

Of course, my trip to Vegas wouldn't be complete without a visit to the {not-so-nearby} Lakeshore Learning store.  We had no trouble catching a taxi to get there....it was finding one back that was near impossible!
On a side note, I did pick up some amazing finds!

I hung out so much with these lovely ladies...and miss them already!

I {heart} Debbie Clement!
She was amazing on stage and asked a bunch of us from Blogland to help her out with her act!

Best part about the trip...hanging out with these amazing teachers!

We had our 2nd Annual Blogger Meet Up - I truly enjoyed seeing some faces from last year and meeting a whole bunch of new friends!

We ate at some pretty AWESOME places!
Did I ever mention I {HEART} food!?!?

Friends...old and new!

These ladies sure did make my trip memorable and F-U-N!

I got to listen to Ron Clark speak in person!  What an amazing person!
Sure makes me realize how lucky I am to be a teacher and how much I love what I do!

It's Vegas!  We just HAD to see a show....so we went to the Marc Savard comedy hypnosis show.
Very funny!

Finally, Vegas just wouldn't be complete without some shopping and R&R time by the pool!

I loved my little get-away last week.  I learned so much from the sessions at the conference, caught up with old friends, made lots of new friends and had a blast!
One regret....wish I could have stayed longer....there is never enough time when you are having fun!

  5. I already miss you and wish you did not live so darn far away. Keep in touch during the year because I want to hear how your year is going. Let me know if I can help you in any way. I had so much fun spending time with you. This is an annual event for us! Thank you for encouraging me to come. I learned so much, laughed so much, but did not get enough time with you! I always feel like the time zooms by...
    Much love to you,
    Fran
