Math Moves Giveaway Winners and a Little Blogger Meet Up Fun :)

Thank you so much for all of the pinning and support you have given me for my summer 2013 baby:

Not a real baby...but kinda.

Anyway, I'm here to announce the 5 winners:


Congratulations!  Winners, if you didn't receive an email from me, then that means I couldn't find an email address for you.  Please email me :)

If you didn't win...I am keeping this at the introductory price of $10.00 through Thursday of this week.  Click {here} to head to my TpT store if you are interested.

Next, can I just say that last weekend's Carolina Bloggers Meet Up was simply the best way to "end" a summer?  Seriously.  These girls rock.  I had the best time ever.  More pictures to come (Ginger @ Ginger Snaps took all of them and she's on vacation right now {slightly jealous}).  Thank you, Amanda @ Teaching Maddeness for setting this whole weekend up. Thank you, Ginger for giving her some help, too!  This weekend was great because of all of your hard work!

I did snag a few pictures from Instagram, my own "camera" (iPhone), and other blogs. The weekend started with Natalie @ Teachery Tidbits and Brandee @ Creating Lifelong Learners meeting at my house to drive to Greenville together.
This is where we stayed.  Beautiful :)

We ate at The Lazy Goat overlooking the river.  Beautiful again.  Here are the ladies at my table:

This gal is my sorority sister!  I haven't seen her in about 6 years (maybe).  She's not a blogger, but I'm glad Amanda convinced her to join us for dinner.  
After dinner, we headed over to a dueling piano bar where we all had a great time singing and dancing.  So fun!  Just ask Amber and Elisabeth:

Here are a few, grainy pictures from my fabulous iPhone:

That's me with Brandee (top), Rachel @ The Tattooed Teacher (left) and Amber.  
The next day, we had lunch at Chicora Valley. 
Here's a picture of me and my roomies right before lunch:

Here's a snapshot of about 1/2 of us right before lunch. I have no idea what I'm doing with my neck, but chances are I was in mid-laugh:

We left right after lunch to get back, but some of the gals stayed around for a scavenger hunt through Greenville.  See, I'm telling you...best blogger weekend EVER :)
