My Amazing Trip to Vegas 2014!

Oh my goodness you guys, Vegas last week was uh-mazing. I can't even put it into words! I am still recovering! I had too much fun hanging out with all my best blogging buddies and meeting new friends from all over the world! So my intention was to tell you a little bit about my trip and then share a tutorial that I had many questions about during my presentation, but as I was putting my pictures together, I realized there are actually more that I wanted to show you than I thought! So the tutorial will be a whole separate post at a later date ;)

Here I am at the Freebielicious booth! Crystal made the CUTEST little candy buttons for us and I of course had to take a million pictures with them ;)

As we were walking through the hotel, we ran into these sweet girls {we knew they were bloggers/TpTers as the Paul head was a dead giveaway}
LOVED meeting these sweet girls!
{Laura, Mary, me, Tamara and Christina}

That night, we had our 3rd annual Teacher Blogger Meet Up! You guys, I can't even explain! It just gets bigger and better every year, and the energy in the room is unbelievable! {can we also just real quick talk about how the Venetian makes EVERY picture yellow!? gah!}
 I got to spend a lot of time with my bestie Christy, I just adore her!! I also met Cara!!!! I have been dying to meet her for years! Love her! And I got to see my other favorite friends, Traci, Kelley and Steph! {side note, I am obsessed with Stephanie's new blog design!!!}

It was so fun to see Amy again!!! Love her! And my BBFF Teeny :) {why yes, we were attached at the hip in case you were wondering}

On Thursday, we headed back to the booth and met lots more fabulous teachers!
Annie and Mel are hilarious and so fun to be around!

I also did a fun little instagram giveaway, Casey won a classroom apron that my mom made! 

Friday was spent at the TpT Super Conference! It was hands-down, the best conference I have ever attended! And I had SO MUCH FUN presenting!!! I can't wait to do it again!
{Did anyone see the Flutter Girls present??? They were AMAZING!}

I was SO SO SO excited to meet Kimberly!!! {after I stopped ignoring her ;)} She is just so adorable and I am obsessed with her. Deanna Jump is the best, I just love that she is a part of my life!

Thank you Amy and Karen for putting on such a successful conference! You guys rocked it!!!
AND!!!!! I got to meet Paul!!! In my usual stalkerish ways, I accidentally stalked him at lunch on Wednesday and apparently was the first Paul hug of the week. UMMM I'll take it!!! He was amazing and genuine and so nice to everyone!!!

I loved spending time with my Freebilcious girls and getting to know them better!

And finally, all the wonderful presenters and Team TpT!

What a SPECTACULAR week! Can't wait for Vegas 2015!!!!

  3. Hi! I'm linking up with you via A Burst in First! Vegas was amazing...especially for someone like myself who just started blogging and TPT selling! I didn't get to attend the TPT conference due to another that I was attending, but I sure look forward to next year. I did attend the blogger meet up, however, and it was so much fun. I met so many nice people. What was your presentation on? Hopefully one day I'll present...that would be too cool! Thanks for all you do!
