I know! It's been almost an entire week since I went to the amazing Winter Warm-Up, but I just haven't had the time to post anything of substance this week. Between IEP meetings, restraint debriefings, and an issue with a student's family (my New England blogger friends may remember what I'm talking about), I am just now able to sit down and blog about this wonderful experience.
From left to right starting in the back row we have...
If you recall in my last post, I had a mix of feelings about meeting everyone. I was nervous, excited, anxious, shy, and eager. When I think of Blog Meet-Ups, I think of the Blog Celebrities that have made so many friends via the blogsphere. I was nervous to meet everyone - thinking "Little ol' me doesn't belong in one of these things." But alas, the amazing blogging community once again amazed me. It didn't take long after I arrived to feel right at home - between talking about our blogging experience, to complaining about curriculum mapping, to sharing stories about our supportive spouses, I knew I was surrounded by caring, like-minded friends. At the end of our get-together, pictures were taken and hugs were exchanged. Promises of future meet-ups still ring in my memory.

Update February 3:
How did I NOT show the loot I got?! Sheesh...
For the lovely Dianne at Hopelessly Devoted. Who doesn't need a little Bailey's in their life?
Adorable pail, treats, and FLAIR PEN! Thanks Vera from Tutu Teacher :)
More delightful goodies! Loving the gel pens :)
I'm a dunce - if my New England bloggers could ID the generous friend who provided these goodies, please let me know!
A BIG thank you to Deirdre from A Burst of First for organizing this whole thing! Thank you!!!
