I have to actually set the alarm for the AM because I am going to the Pinnacle Conference. I was chosen to be part of this technology group in my district that helps give teachers tools and resources to support technology integration into their classroom back in 2010. It was the reason I started blogging! It was a requirement that I honestly thought was lame at the time! Oh what I would have missed out on if I hadn't started this journey! I have made so many amazing friends through blogging. Not to mention how much I have grown as an educator because of blogging.
This past weekend I had a chance to meetup with some of my Carolina Blogging Buddies (CBBs) in Greenville, SC. The amazing and adorable Amanda Madden planned this super fun meetup along. She is such a doll! Our riddler for the weekend was Ginger. She came up with a neat scavenger hunt that allowed us to see all the key places in Greenville. Love these ladies!
I headed down with my real life and bloggy BFF, Amber and man did we have fun! I mean we have fun where ever we are, but this weekend was especially fun!
We stayed at the Westin downtown and it was NICE! This is a pic of all my roomies. Brandee, Elizabeth, Natalie, and Amber.
Love this black and white shot of Amber, Natalie and I from dinner at The Lazy Goat. We all indulged in the Happy Hour special, a Strawberry Daiquiri Martini. Yumo!
We spent the night at a local Dualing Piano Bar which was so much fun! I think Amber and I had the most fun, but I may be a little biased!
Saturday we headed over Chicora Alley for lunch and it was delicious! Its like Mexican meet American. Yall know how I love my tacos, so I was in heaven.
Amanda made each of us a nametag and giftbag all with the G-Vegas theme. So cute!! Natalie also made delicious cupcakes complete with a theme topper.
This is a shot of some of us before heading over to lunch.
I had an absolute blast meeting up with old friends and meeting new ones! I can't wait till our next meetup which is happening in Charleston! Head over and check out some of the amazing Carolina Bloggers.
