AL Bloggy Meet Up

Hey guys, how's it going?

Well, yesterday was our Alabama blogger meet-up, 

and let me tell you, we had an absolute blast!!!

First up, we met at Chuy's at the Summit, and I love that Chicka-Chicka-Boom-Boom!!

They really thought I had made up the dish, but it's real I tell ya!!

Jennifer is so awesome, she had all of this ready for us!!

The lovely gift below had a pointer attached to it!!

As you can see, we ate good!!

Vickie, Jennifer, Me, Sarah 

Dana, Katie, Linda

Vickie later convinced us that we absolutely HAD to go to Steel City Pops,

and I'd never been there, so I was game!!

And I must say, Vickie, you were absolutely right!!!! The watermelon popsicle was to die for!!

Linda, Vickie, Dana

Sarah, Katie

Then, it was time for a trip to teacher's paradise, Hobby Lobby!!!

Y'all, don't get me started on Jennifer and this chair that she

just had to have, and get it she did!!

She had the entire store cracking up!!!

Here are a few things that I bought....

Now, Vickie has me hooked on this sign for the first day of school pictures,

but I'm waiting on her to do a tutorial,

because without any guidance, 

I will definitely fudge it up, if you know what I mean!!!

I don't know what I'm doing with Mod Podge, but I so want to use it!!

Always need some brushes!!

And I'm so crushing on the glitter clothespins that Greg from 

I may not know what I'm doing, but I'm definitely going to try!!

If you don't follow these awesome ladies, you should head over right now!!!

Sarah Cooley is totally cool & sooooo sweet!!!!

Jennifer called me tech savvy, but she is tech saavy as well, so I'm naming her TechDiva#2!!

Vickie's got it going on in her classroom!! And she loves popsicles!!

I love Linda, she has such a sweet soul!!

Dana is tha!!!! She finds out if it's a boy or girl very soon!!!

Katie is my homegirl, who's also having an awesome giveaway right now!! 

I entered, did you?

Susan has taught the longest amongst all of us, and I love that she still has her 

passion for teaching. She is a great example for all of us!!

I hope you enjoyed the long post, talk to you guys later!!!

  4. That looks like such fun! And I wanna live near a Steel City Pops! I've heard a few bloggers talk about that place. Oooh, and a group trip to Hobby Lobby---if your blogger meet up is anything like when my coworkers and I get together I'm proud you didn't get asked to quiet down, lol.
