We met up at Panera. I recognized Nicole from Teaching With Style right away and we hugged. And then Laura from Teacher Laura popped out from the back. Then Laurie from Chickadee Jubilee came. Sarah from Sarah's First Grade Snippets came too! And Michelle from Third Grade Al Dente. We sat down and then Nicole from Teaching's a Hoot joined us. We missed Hope, but she's preggers, so we understand!
We sat down and chatted for about 3 hours. We ended up not going to Lakeshore (well I don't know about some of the other ladies). We chatted about school, TpT, blogging, and more! Seriously, these ladies are sweet and amazing! There was like instant bonding and connections (or at least it felt that way to me!)
I had a hard time deciding what to wear because we were supposed to have showers (but not til later). So a t-shirt, cardigan, and a skirt it was!
I made these bookmarks for the ladies
I made these sticks with their names on one side and blogger name on the other. And the popsicle says "Oregon teachers are cool!"
In the middle of our convo and laughing, Nicole (Teaching with Style) and I felt a hand on our backs. Turned out to be this old gentleman from Kentucky. He enjoyed our laughter and said it made his day. He stopped by the table two more times! Hahaha.
Nicole and Nicole hahaha :)
L to R: Nicole, Me, Michelle, Laura, Laurie, Sarah, and Nicole (Teaching's a Hoot).
It was a blast and the time flew by so quickly! I can't wait to meet with these lovely ladies again!!!
