Vegas here I come!

It's been a whirlwind summer so far!  Right after school was out, my daughters and I hopped on a plane and headed to Texas to visit my family!  We've been having fun in the sun (and rain)!  Lots of shopping (Woodlands Mall, Willowbrook Mall, Cypress Outlets!!!) and eating out, YUM!  I love the variety of restaurants for sure.  My little Northern California town does not offer too much variety in the dining out department!

Well, I am gearing up for VEGAS now!  I'm so excited to meet so many friends that I have met through blogging and Teachers Pay Teachers!  When I started this little blog 3 years ago, it never occurred to me that I would make friends doing this!  Seriously, I had no idea!

I have multiple "meet ups" scheduled for each day that I'm in Vegas and am chomping at the bit to get there.  Last year I attended the "I Teach First" conference so was able to be there early!  I couldn't justify the extra money this year, so I'm waiting until Tuesday to leave :(  Next year, I think I'll be there for the whole event!  I don't like missing a good party:)

I can't wait to meet up with my Roomie and Grade Level Teaching Partner, Renee Dooly!  She's the best traveling buddy E.V.E.R.  She's super organized!  She makes sure we have reservations for dinner and that we're on time for all the meet ups!  (This super organization comes in handy all year, too!  ;-) )

Since I've been out of town and not near my own printer, my sweet blogging friend Melissa Michael, from the Teacher Treaure Hunter helped me out!  She offered to print all of my session handouts for me!  Then she even put it all in a binder for me!  This woman is amazing...I can't wait to meet her and thank her!

You can follow me on instagram during the conference for fun pictures of our Vegas adventures!  Follow @friendlyfroggie!  If you're in Vegas, I'd love to meet you!  I'm in awe of teacher bloggers now!  :)

More to come...stay tuned!  I'm planning some fun post Vegas Giveaways!
