Everything in Texas is bigger.... teacher blogger meet-up

 OH my gosh
let me tell you I
was super super super
NERVOUS about this meet up
I worried about my hair...
what I was going to wear...
I mean EVERYTHING...
Tunstall and I talked a lot via
emails and decided to do this fun question activity
and have door prizes....
FUN!!!!
Tunstall and I got there at 6:30
we have never met...
so I was hoping I would recognize her
with her FAB new hair color and ALL...
I did and she is cute as can be!!!

we sat and waited
and talked like we had known each other FO EVA
and it was great!!!
We had some great convos
and then
BUZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
the buzzy thing / drink coaster / do they ever disinfect these things
went off and we were seated at a big table for 8

we waited and waited...and talked and talked
OH and had some Adult beverages
it was great!!! then
Kristina
came...she does not have a blog
BUT should because she is a RIOT...
so funny and CUTE CUTE CUTE to boot...
Kristina and Tunstall taught together a few years ago
and Kristina is a Blog fan so she joined us...
SHE REALLY NEEDS A BLOG!!!!
we all talked about who was going to show up and
then we see Katie...
Miss Katie is so sweet
she drove a long way to meet up with us!!!
She is from



Adventures of a 6th Grade Teacher

I LOVE Katie...
we had never met BUT I feel like
I am her friend already...
I remember when her blog was about her student teaching adventures
and now she is a BIG WIG BLOGGER...
we all had a wonderful time talking and sipping and laughing
and then we noticed the time
and noticed we got
STOOD UP
by the others...
no matter
we ordered our food
laughed some more
and had fun...
they really missed out because the 4 of us had a blast!!!
and good for Kristina and Katie because they automatically won the door prizes
here are a few highlights of our convos
* that's the SHIZ
* hooker boots in kinder
* F**ing opossum in the ceilings
* taking down the top 5
* no comment
* TN vs TPT
* blog pet peeves
* throw up
* St. Patrick's Day Trip to Ireland (jealous over here)
* technology in our classrooms or in my case lack of (jealous again)
&
* the summer meet up


SO all in all our impromptu meet up was not as big as expected BUT GRAND for those that came!!!
we went outside and took a pic or 2
here.....

mind you I look like the jolly giant in this pic...
I know how to stand for a pic and here I am in the front...

and TEENY we did talk about you ...
we have decided to schedule our next get together around your trip to see TWIN in Texas
and we also said that our meet - up might not have been as
BIG as yours BUT we did have

    How about one of you have a giveaway for a plane ticket to your next get together?!?!?!

    Okay, I'll be a big girl - glad you all had so much fun, and please note that I would have NEVER EVER, NO NEVER, NEVER have stood you up...

  11. I am having serious jealousy issues.
    Today's post on my blog was supposed to be about decluttering, but instead a comment about Teeny Tiny and you and Reagan snuck in. And then there was a comment about your meet-up. And there was a plea for pictures too--Thanks for obliging! And OH. I just wanted to be there!

    I laughed by myself a few times, so I could pretend--but, no, it just made me feel lonely! And a little crazy.

    NEXT TIME! (I do have a quasi-sister-in-law SOMEwhere in Texas...)

    Glad you four had fun. Sounds like a GREAT time!

  12. WAAAAA! I wish I was there. I wish I was there. I wish I was there.
    I'm glad you talked about me. Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
    You make me laugh.
    I have questions about the topics. Taking down the top 5? The top five what? The top five who? Tell me, tell me, tell me!
    Blogging pet peeves - what? what? what? I want to know.
    I can't wait for summer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I just asked Tunstall what's halfway between the San Antonio area and the Dallas (Frisco) area . . . maybe you guys should just pick me up at the airport. Ha!!!

  16. Boo I wish I could've gone! I live in Texas, but definitely not the part of Texas you were meeting in. I live in El Paso (barely in Texas) which is closer to New Mexico than east or central Texas. Boo again.

  22. I hope the summer one works out for me! I am about 5 hours from SA but will make it to meet you ladies! And if Teeny comes for sure! I may not have any hooker boot stories to share but I do have stories about condoms, picnic tables, tube tops, tire irons, and Mardi Gras beads!

    I want to know the blogging pet peeves! I think that needs to be you next post topic!

    I love Chuy's and an adult beverages with lime! =)

  23. Should have invited us Okie girls cause I sure would have crossed the Red River to be there! And you would have had to fight for the ba dunk ka dunk status cause these OLD horseback riding hips would have knocked you out of the front running! lol Let us know about this summer!

  24. Hi Farley:
    When I interviewed her, I loved that Maria Dismondy knew all about OLW--which I learned about from YOU! (You are such a trend-setter)
    Come check it out.
    Still jealous of that meet-up, BTW. And I thought the same thing about the coordinated outfits!
