Two Hoots and A Holler: Two Road Trips in One Week!

Hoot #1
We got to spend this weekend with some great people!  We went to Nashville to the End of the Year Nashville Bash Blogger & Teacher Meet Up.  We had a blast down in the south meeting up with some of the best educators in the world!

 We first met up at Atmalogy! We caught up with old friends and met new ones!
 Then it was time to eat some good ole southern food! BBQ, baked beans, macaroni and cheese (that was to die for!), corn muffins, and sweet tea were eaten by all! We left totally stuffed!
 Smorgie came for a visit and a glass of sweet tea!

And then, it was....PICTURE TIME!!
 Meet our friend Annie, the photo bomber (lol),  at
 Two thumbs up for Nash Bash 2015
Simpson's Superstars

 Our friend Dana who helped get this wonderful bash together. We gave her a holler last week, she is truly amazing!  What a blast we had hanging out with her!

  Some of our bestest buddies came from Texas!  We couldn't wait to hug the necks of All Ya'll Need! We decided this group picture should be labeled, All Ya'll Glitter Girls! 

Finally, it was prize time!  Amy from All Ya'll Need need won a ESGI year subscription for her entire grade!! Super Jealous, but so happy for her!
 That night, we gathered at Opryland Hotel to mingle for a bit.

Sunday, we woke up bright and early to have breakfast at Monell's, which was absolutely amazing, and to say goodbye to all of our friend.  We said a special goodbye to our friend Greg @The Kindergarten Smorgasboard.  Thanks to everyone who hosted this awesome event! 
 It was wonderful event! 
Until next time my friends!!
Hoot #2
We were blessed enough to attend and PRESENT (Yes! We said present!) at the Making Connections Conference in Biloxi, MS. We presented Kindergarten 101 to a great group of educators.  This was a HUGE step for us because we aren't used to talking to adults, but we did it.  We presented 2 days in a row, and we are so thankful we were given this opportunity to reach out to others.  We can't wait until the next one!!

 The teachers even stayed around afterwards to ask questions and get more info!! How exciting!!

 Congratulations to our winners of a 1 year subscriptions to ESGI!  We know that you will love it!  Thank you ESGI for supporting teachers throughout Mississippi!  Our recipients were so excited they won this, one even said she almost cried when she heard her name!

Big Thanks to Knowledge Tree in Horn Lake, MS! Thanks to you, these lovely ladies went home with a bag full of goodies!!

 These two ladies went home with our newest item on TPT!
Thank you Fiskars out of Southaven, MS for donating these scissors for this teacher and her students!!
Big thanks to our wonderful co-worker, photographer, and friend, Danielle Abner!  She is the original Glitter Girl Groupie!!
