Indiana Teaching Blogger Meet-up Success!!

Today was absolutely amazing.  Who thought that a group of people that have never met can get together and sit and talk for 4 1/2 hours!!!!  We had 15 wonderful bloggers get together today.

 Do you recognize anyone?  We are all going to link up at the bottom so you should definitely check all these wonderful ladies out!!

We had a great time chatting and sharing blogging and TPT tips.  We even had a Dirty Santa Teacher game where we all brought products or teaching supplies!  It was so much fun.

All the wonderful gifts together before we started the game

This one is a bit fuzzy, but we were all taking pictures of the gifts and then started taking pictures of each other taking pictures. I love all the candid expressions of Annie from Twenty-something Teacher Tales, Ciera from Adventures of Room 129, and Nicole from All Things Apple In 2nd (left to right) 

We definitely had some stealing of gifts going on during the game.

Here is Hilary from Rockin' Teacher Materials stealing a gift (which she ended up stealing the Conscious Discipline book from me)  

And Mary Beth from Run Teacher Run! stealing a gift that I ended up with!


I ended up with Hilary's Math Mysteries The Case of the Mixed-Up March Madness Third Grade. Her Math Mysteries have been in my Wishlist for awhile. This definitely won't be my last one to get!

Ciera made us all these adorable picture frames:

Can you tell we had fun??!  I cannot wait to meet up with these girls again!  A couple more pictures of me with some bloggers that I was super excited to meet are below.  Thank you to Jenny from Luckeyfrog's Lilypad for taking such great pictures so I could update them on this post to a better quality picture below.

Hilary from Rockin' Teacher Materials (middle) because I have been following her forever and love her blog and products and Jenny (right) from Ignite Learning because she has a behavior management focus, like I do!

And last but definitely not least... Brenda from Primary Inspired!!! I have also been following her for a long time!  

There are many Indiana Bloggers that didn't get to come.  We definitely need to do this again!  Thank you to everyone that came! 

Time to link up, so you can see all these wonderful blogs also!!
