French Lick Blogger Meetup

In case you haven't heard, some teachers from various parts of the country decided to get together for some fun and networking this weekend in a little place called French Lick, IN.

When Greg messaged me about this meet up, I knew I had to go.  

Four of my teaching BFFs drove the hour drive to French Lick on Saturday to attend.  To put it lightly, it was a BLAST!  Holly did a fantastic job of organizing this event.  It was seriously one of the most organized events I've ever attended.  Not only that, but I feel like I came away feeling refreshed and renewed, and with 50+ new BFFs!

My crew:  me, Lindsey, Jena, and Tiffany...My friend Marissa wasn't there yet for this picture!

Our SWAG!!!  Thanks, Vera Bradley, Scentos, Erin Condren, Crayola, Crystal Springs Books, SDE, Jamberry, and Kaden Books!

Four teachers... one night... twenty bags...

We took a golf cart ride through French Lick.  They are apparently street-legal there.

 We ate some yummy pizza at Off the Brick in French Lick.  We were able to watch the game AND eat our weight in cheesy bread.  Win-Win.

Speaking of win-win, we might have spent a little time in the hotel casino.  Although this picture looks a tad deceiving, I did not win big, but we did walk away with free Cokes!

We said goodbye early Sunday morning.  Sadsville.  I'm already looking forward to the next meet up. This weekend was just what I needed.

I found this little tidbit Sunday night after my bags were unpacked and reality set back in.  I think it's pretty fitting to describe the feel of the weekend.  

There is more to come from the amazing group of teachers who met this weekend.  I won't let the cat out of the bag, but stay tuned!
