Alabama Blogger Meet Up and Currently July

I'm linking up with Farley's Currently!  You'll have to wait til the end of this post to see it!

Today I got the pleasure of meeting some fabulous Alabama bloggers!  Y'all I cannot tell you how much fun I had with all of these talented teachers!  

There was a lot of teacher talk but a whole lotta eating! We ate at Chuy's Mexican Restaurant. This pregnant gal ate way too much but I just couldn't stop. The creamy jalapeƱo dip was to die for. 

Me, Jennifer White, Katie Smith, and Linda Larson
Some real blogger celebrities!  Vicki Plant, Jennifer White, Angela Griffith

Me with Sarah Cooley (From First Grader at Last!!!)  So excited!
After lunch we headed to Steel City Pops.  They have yummy popsicles and it was the perfect answer to an extremely hot Alabama day!

Eating yummy popsicles at Steel City Pops!
After we ate our popsicles we went to Hobby Lobby to do some shopping.  I was good and didn't buy anything.  But you better believe that I wanted to!  I had so much fun and these ladies are all contributors as to why I began blogging in the first place!  They seriously inspire you!  I feel blessed by meeting every one of them!

I hope you'll go and visit their blogs, although I am sure you are already following ALL of them like I am!

Listening: Love me some Mumford and Sons.  Seriously it puts me in such a great mood.
Loving: Mr. Coach is on his short vacay but I am more than thrilled to get to spend some 1 on 1 time with him.  He works so hard and I'm glad he gets to relax a bit!

Thinking: Being pregnant, I know I need to go out and exercise.  But it's real hard when ice cream and sweets are what I am craving.  24/7!

Wanting: I CANNOT wait to find out what we are having!  4 weeks.  4 weeks people!!!  I was that child that would look for their christmas presents and I always tell people what I got them before I give it to them.  I'm terrible with surprises!

Needing:  I wore shorts yesterday.  It was depressing.  You may go blind if you were to stare at my legs for too long.  Yikes.

Tips, Tricks, or Hints: Some of the amazing bloggers above have inspired me to pin my products more. I am off to find some collaborative boards that I can join in on!  If you have one let me know!

Well Mr. Coach and I are headed to South Georgia to visit his grandparents!  They live out in the middle of nowhere and there is no internet service!  EEK!  Let's see if I can make it!  Stay awesome friends!

Moved, A Surprise, and Alabama Blogger Meet-Up

Well I'm back!  I apologize for my lengthy absence.  But I have been BUSY!  Stick with me, it's a long post, but you'll be rewarded if you missed out on it the first time!

I finally got to move to Alabama to be with the hubs.  The move itself was comical.  Well lets back up a little.  This will explain my absence a little...

Anywho, we said goodbye to Arkansas and hello to Alabama!  But the move was anything but smooth.  We hired movers to come and load the truck for us because I wasn't going to be of much help.  Mr. Coach was unable to come home because they had football camps but my wonderful dad came in town to help me and drive the truck.  Well, the movers were 4 hours late and then they were incredibly slow loading the truck.  We had to be in Alabama at 8:00 the next morning to meet Mr. Coach and the other movers to unload the truck.  We didn't leave Arkansas until 8:30 that night.  We arrived in Alabama at 6:30 the next morning.  EXHAUSTING!!!  Luckily I got to sit in a chair, on the front porch, and direct where everything went.  I said that I wanted to be every move if I was going to get the royal treatment like this!  haha.

We have everything moved in and my mom even came and stayed for a few days to help me decorate.  She is a genius when it comes to these things!  

I know I am not the only elementary teacher with this much stuff.  It's actually quite embarrassing.  The price you pay to have a fun classroom!  As I mentioned before I am still looking for a job.  I have a couple of leads but living in a college town it is extremely tough to come across a job!  So say a prayer because we need that awesome teacher insurance more than ever right now!  

What better way to get back into the groove of things than to go meet up with some amazing bloggers!  I am too pumped for this!  I can't wait to meet everyone that will be there.  Jennifer over a First Grade Blue Skies is the one putting this together!  I may have a little panic attack on my way there at meeting her.  Seriously though!  

Tomorrow begins the start of Mr. Coach's vacation so we are making a little trip up to Atlanta so we can go to lunch and then to IKEA!  Love that place.

I joined bloglovin'!  You can find me here!

Also here is a little measurement freebie that I posted a couple weeks ago!

I promise not to be gone so long next time.  I will be back to tell all about the blogger meet up! EEK!
