What Happens in Vegas ...


Hello Everyone!!
I can't believe that I went to Vegas last week. It was one of the most inspiring and exciting trips of my life! I went with my best friend Nicole from Today in Second Grade, and my other buddy Val from All Students Can Shine! I won't lie to all of you,  it was tough leaving my four children and Mr. Leslie behind, but I did it ... and I am proud of ME! We were gone for a total of 6 days! I have never done that before .. but it was really worth it! I feel SUPERCHARGED!!! LOL!!!

The first night we arrived, we got dressed in a hurry and went to TAO for a scrumptious late night dinner! Definitely, a great way to kick start our trip!

 
The SDE & TPT conferences were sensational. At one point I had to just breathe ... and pinch myself, just to make sure that I was really there. I learned so much!! I met some of the most inspirational bloggers, EVER!!! I felt star struck by Deanna Jump, Rachel Smith and Cara Caroll, Kim Adsit, Jennifer White, Erica Bohrer, Kaci Hoffer, Greg Smedly and Corinna just to name a few!



The TPT Happy Hour was a blast! I had a couple glasses of wine (maybe more than a couple!!!), got to unwind a bit, and chat with Sarah Kirby and my pals!!!


I also got to meet Nicki from Nicki's Notepad! She is so sweet!! I loved chatting away with her!! We really hit it off!!


How did we manage to add in a little shopping, an excursion to the Grand Canyon, and a MOTOWN show??? Good Question!!!


OMG!! I can't believe that I got to experience the Grand Canyon with my BESTIE!!! It was surreal!! When I got into the helicopter, I had a bit of a FREAK OUT moment ... but managed to keep my eyes open for most of the trip! Nothing beats a glass of champagne at 9 o'clock in the morning, at the bottom of the Grand Canyon! That sure took my jitters away!!


The Motown Show was just a B-L-A-S-T!! There is a cute story about how we got tickets to the show (I will leave that for another time!!!) Mr. Foster, you rock.. WHAT AN HONOR!! I think that I sang and danced for the entire hour and a half!! (I wore flats .. thank goodness!) It brought me back to such special times in my life .. I remember dancing to so many of these songs, with my mom and dad.. I really enjoyed listening to the hotties from Human Nature .. they are so talented!! They were definitely eye candy, and ... pretty sweet to my ears, too! 

On another note.. my husband sent me this picture, during one of the conferences .. and this message.... 


"Babe, what time does Julian take a nap?!!??"

LOL!!! OIE!!!!

This trip was out of this world! PHENOMENAL !!! So much learning, laughter, and INSPIRATION!!! What an action packed week!! I can't wait for next year!!
