Christmas in JULY! I'm having a SALE!

It may be smack-dab in the middle of July, but I'm feeling like Santa for the next few days!  No, it's not because of the extra pounds I've gained from enjoying my summer break a little *too much (haha), it's because I've got a whole BUNCH of products I'm putting on sale over the next few days and you get a chance to grab them for a great price before the new school year starts!

I'm linking up with the lovely ladies over at BLOG HOPPIN for this amazing sale.  Since I'm joining the party a little late, I'm offering 20% off my entire store today through Saturday, the 26th!  Be sure to stock up!  There are lots of other great products out there from some of my favorite sellers.  It's time to stock up!

Vegas Recap!

I've been back from Vegas a little over a week now... and let me tell you - it was everything I imagined it would be an SO much more!  It was so amazing to be a part of the FIRST ever TpT Conference.  I learned so much that I can't wait to put into practice.  Along with that, I met so many great people and had a fabulous time exploring the city with my wonderful husband, Matt.

I thought I'd share a few of my favorite moments.  

Such a peaceful view on our short 50 minute, morning flight to Vegas! 
My first day in a nutshell!  Palazzo (FAB-U-LOUS!), TpT Swag,
happy hubby in our fancy suite, and me with my official looking conference badge!  

My new friend!  We met at breakfast and hung out all day together!  She is one cool chick!
Miss you bunches, Rena from Denver (aka The Special Ed Thread!)  

The fabulous HAPPY HOUR after the conference!  Cocktails, appetizers, tons of TpT'ers,
and lots of fun little surprises (like a photo booth that we never got around to!)  

My view for the morning Kick-off Keynote Speaker!  So exciting.  Got to
hear fromPaul, the founder!  What a humble, generous, lovable guy!  

My first session with TpT Superstar and TOP SELLING member, Deanna Jump!
So neat to learn from the best.  She's so adorable and has the cutest southern accent to boot.  Love her!

Taking a break from dancing all night with my hubby.  We may be in our 30's (and 40's), but
we still like to get down!  LOL!  Especially in VEGAS!  So much fun.

Heading to VEGAS!!!

Let's hear it for SUMMERTIME!  After a super busy school year, I have savored every moment of these last two weeks at home with my three little ones.  Waking up without an alarm clock, enjoying an extra cup of coffee, soaking up the sunshine... it's been magical.  I've even managed to be somewhat productive!  I haven't worked on any new TpT products yet, but I was able to attend a two-day math training on an amazing program to help students learn their math facts (it's called "FactsWise"  I highly recommend it!)  I also re-decorated our master bedroom, joined a gym, discovered Zumba (seriously LOVE IT!), and hosted two big summer gatherings at our house!  We spent this last weekend with one of my best friends at a nearby lake and had the best time boating, tubing, and swimming.  It was absolutely perfect.

Now, I'm in packing mode for my upcoming trip to VEGAS for the first-ever TpT Conference!  Here's a little sneak peek of what fun I'll be having this Friday (along with over 700 other teachers!)  Wow!  So excited to meet some of my favorite SUPERSTAR TpT Sellers!  I'm seriously excited.  (Can you tell?)

I am seriously bursting with excitement!  I can't wait to meet other like-minded teachers, learn how to step-up my products and sales, and most of all... be INSPIRED!  Of course, this will also be a mini-vacation for my hubby and I (we will be kid free for an entire weekend!  Woo-hoo!)  Aside from the conference, I'm looking forward to exploring the casinos, trying some fabulous restaurants, shopping Vegas style, enjoying an adult beverage or two, and going out on the town!

To celebrate my trip to Vegas, I'm linking up with Mercedes over at Surfing to Success for a special VEGAS SALE Linky!  Be sure to check it out!  My store, along with many others, will be 20% off from July 9-12th!

I'll be posting updates on my Facebook page throughout the conference, so be sure to "Like" my page if you haven't already!  You'll find the link here:  Making Lemonade in Second Grade

Okay, enough chit-chat!  I'm off to pack!  Vegas, HERE I COME!!!
