Nashville Blogger/Follower Meet Up!

What fun was had last weekend in Nashville! 
The bloggers were:
Misty and Christy-Teaching Times Two
The followers were:
Asha, Kristine, and Danielle
    We started the fun at Amerigo's on West End where we got to know each other over lunch and a drawing with fantastic prizes.  Greg from Smedley's Smorgasboard and Elizabeth from Kickin' it in Kindergarten planned this fun filled weekend and collected boxes and boxes of awesome prizes!  

One of the most special parts of the blogger meet up was meeting Stacy from Simpson's Superstars.

True story- Last school year, our classes were paired up by Kelley at Teacher Idea Factory in a pen pal exchange program.  Well, the only writing that ever happened between the two of us was Stacy and I emailing each other to say how sorry we were that our classes never wrote to each other!! 
So when I discovered {through Instagram} that my pen pal blogger buddy from Florida was going to be at lunch, I was so excited!

After Amerigo's, we met at Chuy's (yes, we ate again!) at Opry Mills.  Opry Mills is a huge outlet mall in Nashville.  In 2010, we had a flood like no other.  Parts of Nashville were underwater for days.  The mall was closed for almost two years.  It was unbelievable.

So we ate at Chuy's where Kristy from Teaching Times 2 was our waiter's Vanna!  She and her sister Misty are so adorable.  They have a true Tennessee twang and share great tips for primary grades on their blog.

After dinner, we went to ICE! 
I think Kristy is also to thank for this group picture! :)

Ice slide! 

Poor little Stacy! Her Florida blood isn't used to Arctic air!
I can't wait until next year! Make plans to join us!
