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 jalapeño 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!
