Blogland Takes Over Vegas!

I am still recovering from Vegas. This trip wore me slap out, but was seriously one of my best vacations to date! Here are a few (or twenty) pictures to show what happens when bloggers take Vegas by storm! :)

On Sunday, I flew out of Atlanta with my sweet friend, Anna Brantley! We literally talked and laughed…really loud…during the entire 3 1/2 hour flight! Yes, we were “those” people, but we didn’t mind!


When we arrived in Vegas, we couldn’t get to baggage claim fast enough to welcome Rachelle from What the Teacher Wants! Anna made the most adorable welcome sign! Yes, those are flashing lights! Did you expect anything less?

How cute are these girls?!?

Once we arrived and met up with our other blogging buddies, the fun never stopped…ever!!! Which is why I am still recovering with a 4 hour nap each day! How could you not have fun with this group of ladies?!?

Group Dinner

Kim and Megan (KinderGals), Melissa (Lesson Plan SoS), Michelle (Fabulous in First), Rachelle (What the Teacher Wants), Anna (Crazy for First Grade), Me, Cheryl (Primary Graffiti), Deedee (Mrs. Wills Kindergarten), Shari (Shari Sloane from, Deanna (Mrs. Jump's Class), and Kathleen (Growing Kinders). 

We relaxed poolside at our cabana!


Ate WAY too much food!


And were BIG winners in the casino!

And to top it all off, we were able to meet up with 100+ of our bloggy friends! Many would say that they couldn’t handle Vegas, but I say Vegas couldn’t handle us!

Melissa and I enjoyed greeting all of the sweet teacher bloggers! We didn’t scare any of them away…I promise!
