TpT Vegas 2015

It's like summer camp for adults.  ~ Adam Freed, TpT CEO

 I never went to summer camp as a kid, but if it was anything like the TpT conference, then dang I sure missed out!    

I'm going to be honest here.  I wasn't sure if I was going to go to the conference this year.  I went last year and absolutely loved it.  But, did I really need to go again?  I knew ahead of time that I would be going by myself (my husband came last year).  I've never traveled alone before, so I was scared as heck to go to Vegas, of all places.

After our New England Blogger Meet-Up in February, I KNEW that I had to go.  And I'm sure glad that I did.  Not only did I learn more than last year, but I got to connect with so many friends that I had never met before (odd concept, I know).  Since it was my second time, I was more comfortable talking to people I didn't know.
 I met up with fellow TpT-mama, Susan Jones from Thank God It's First Grade!  We talked babies, blogging and teaching.  Okay, mostly babies.
Some more wonderful TpT-mamas.
 Kayla, from K's Classroom Kreations, is a friend from high school.  She moved to North Carolina a few years ago and I haven't seen her in a long time.  Thanks to TpT, we were reunited!  How crazy is that?
On Thursday morning, we got to network with our grade levels.  There are so many wonderful sellers in the primary range, that it's easy to get caught up.  It was nice to talk to teachers that were "my age."  I spent some time chatting with Jessica Ivey from Ideas by Jivey, Diane from Fifth in the Middle,  and Deb Hanson of Crafting Connections.
 And then there is this girl!  Kristine has been my go-to girl for all things teaching and blogging.  She is definitely my inspiration.  We talked a lot about her new blog, Young Teacher Love.  It's beautiful - go check it out!
Abby, of the Third Grade Bookworm, and I rocking the photo booth!
My roommate and I realized on the taxi ride back to the airport that we had not gotten one picture together!  Here I am with Amanda from The Take Home Teacher.  She was so much fun to room with!

I left Vegas with more friends, knowledge and inspiration that I know what to do with.  It might be weeks before it all fully sinks in.  Bring on Vegas 2016!
