Fun in Alabama Today!

OK..I just got back from my lunch with my fun bloggy friends!!  Not only did we have a great lunch, it is just amazing to me how connected we all are.  As teachers, no matter what area or school we teach at, it seems we share so many of the same interests, concerns, etc.  We are all so different, yet fundamentally the same.  We love kids (no matter what we may jokingly say).  
OK...enough observations...and onto the fun:

We had a great time and I got to meet some of the best Bama Bloggers is a 
little dish on each of them:
Melissa from F is for First Grade...she is cute as a button and super sweet!
Angela from Daily Alphabet...she is funny and apparently a semi-hoarder!
Lauren from Just add Clipart...Adorable and is now afraid of Envision Math b/c of me I think!! lol
Jada from Daisy Days of Learning who is just getting into go follow her!
She has great ideas!
Ashlee from Peace, Love, Learn.. sweet as she can be and hoping to get back in the classroom next year.
Kelli from Castles and Crayons....she is so fun... and has the prettiest hair (shh..don't tell her I was secretly admiring her hair!!)
Vickie from Mrs Plant's Press ..she came all the way from Florida to join us (ok, maybe she has family in the area and was up for other reasons, too...but let me go on thinking what I want!!) I was loving her accessories and wishing I had the super cool ring and necklace she was wearing!!
Mechele from Barrow's Hodge Podge ...she was hilarious and so much fun to listen to...Oh, and she has plenty of animals to give away if any of you are interested!!!
Well, and there was this other teacher that sat in the seat next to me...she was invisible (so I didn't take a picture or get her name...but I did make the waitress wait for her before she could take our orders) (joke)

Seriously, if you aren't already following these amazing ladies, please visit their blogs and FOLLOW!!!  They are all awesome!

And now some pictures!!
Here I am with Jada (who came with me and teaches with me at the same school)

    Going Nutty!

  2. I love seeing and reading about all the bloggy meet ups! We had a great time in Michigan and I was also surprised at how well we all connected, guess I shouldn't be after reading all the blogs! Glad you had a good time! I am always tempted to drive across the country to meet everyone, but my husband stops me :)


  3. Looks like you girls had a great time! It's so much fun to finally meet other bloggers face to face, huh!?

  4. Wow! Looks like you gals had so much FUN!!

  13. Looks like you had a great time. I can't wait for the TN blogger meet up in April!

  14. I had the best time ever! Melissa, we should definitely do it again! Jennifer, thanks again!

  15. I think it was maybe me in the invisible chair...waaaaah!!! I just love seeing bloggers get together!!!! Wish real life was as easy as internet but thankful that we get to be together daily in our thoughts and lives anyway!!! Great record keeping! Need to add a couple new friends to my blogroll now!

  16. Had a blast today! I think we should do it again! Thanks Jennifer for putting everything together.

  17. I'm definitely in for doing it again...thanks for organizing it! I had so much fun!

  18. I had a great time and actually learned alot just from listening to the other bloggers talk! For those of you who are wondering, I have decided on a name! My blog is no longer Fourth Grade Frenzy but Daisy Days for Learning. I decided that since I am so young and most likely won't stay in fourth grade forever, I should have a more versatile name. I love daisies (they are my absolute fav!) so what better than Daisy Days! Hope you all will visit me and leave me any comments about what you like and would like to see more of. I love to learn!

    Thanks again Jennifer for putting together the meet! I enjoyed meeting everyone! =) We SO should do this again!

  24. It looks like your day was full of fun! I'm so jealous. I feel like there aren't many other bloggers in Maryland. If you know of any, please send them my way.

    I absolutely adore YOU and your blog. You are always one of the first people to comment on other's blogs, and you always have such sweet and kind things to say. You rock, sister! I wish I lived closer to all you amazing women.
