First Annual Mid-West Teacher Blogger Meet Up

What's the best way to spend a Saturday?  Surrounded by AMAZING and POSITIVE teachers from all over the Midwest!  I was privileged to have been a part of the 1st Annual Midwest Teacher Blogger Meet Up.  I am a self-proclaimed BB...Beginner Blogger!  The ladies I got to spend the day with are far from that!  I have followed many of them via their blog, Facebook, or Instagram for awhile.  Some I met for the first time and have already started following them.  It was amazing to learn from them and get energized by the collective energy that was in one room.

I wasn't alone in this adventure!  It was a Road Trip with my pals, Molly (at Miss K's Kindergarten) and Sara (at Life in the Fast Lane).  We decided to make a day of it and started off with Portillo's for lunch!  I mean it is a must!!  And oddly enough, we all ordered the same thing!  Next we hit up the Container Store and Five Below!  Five Below was filled with amazing finds and the Container Store had just what I needed for an activity I am doing later in the week!  Then we hit the promised land, IKEA!!!  The IKEA in Schaumburg is almost OVERWHELMING in size, however we were up for the challenge.  We tackled half the store when we realized it was time to head to the Meet-Up!  So we checked out with our Round 1 purchases and head to Lakeshore Learning!  A huge THANK YOU to Lakeshore Learning for allowing us to invade their space.  At Lakeshore, we continued to get our shop on!

Below are some pictures from this great day!
Who doesn't love Portillo's???  What is your favorite thing to order?

Not going to lie...they had to test these cool chairs from the Container Store and their testing got a little dangerous! This is after testing!

Some go to IKEA to shop, some take selfies!

My pals that help me stay on the positive path!
