Mile High TPT Meet-Up Recap and Giveaway!

June 6, 2015

What better way to wrap up the school year than meeting up with fabulous and fun bloggers and TPTers from around Colorado??

Thanks to Ashley at Teaching In Bronco Country, the meet up last weekend was a great success! It was so great to meet a whole group of awesome ladies and talk about out blogs, TPT journeys and education in general. I even got to reconnect with my friend Renee! We’ve been friends for a loooong time – think in the more than 20 years range, folks. Check out her TPT store here.

The folks at the Rio Grande Restaurant were so kind to let us take over part of their restaurant to hold the meet up! If you live in Colorado and haven’t eaten there, come on! They have the BEST margaritas and delicious food. If you are visiting Colorado, it’s highly recommended…but be careful drinking those margs at altitude people. 😉

Once we got all of our chatting out of the way (and there was a lot of that!) we all sat down at our seats and checked out all the goodies in our amazing swag bags. Check out all the fabulous donations!!

Ashley rounded up donations for the bags from Learning Resources, Bic, and GoNoodle! More details about the bags later…

This is Renee looking cute and me mid-sentence. As usual!

After eating our yummy lunches (and having one two margaritas) it was time to get drawing for the raffle. Check out this table!!

There were so many awesome prizes from some amazing donors: Lakeshore Learning, Learning Resources, Classroom Friendly Supplies, ScentCo, Learning Expeditions, Little Knits Studio, Gifts By Gaby,, and KristyBear Designs! Whew! We had games, yummy scented pens and pencils, online Planbook subscriptions, blog designs, adorable t-shirts, games, organization AND great products from all of the wonderful sellers at the meet-up.

If you’re feeling super jealous that you didn’t get to join us, don’t worry!! You can enter for a chance to win one of the awesome swag bags from the meet-up! You will get awesome pens and pencils from Bic, a seat pocket cover, magnetic subject labels, and magnetic clips from Learning Resources, a lanyard and bag from GoNoodle, AND a scented marker from ScentCo. You can join in on the fun without making a trip to Colorado. (But feel free to come visit anytime!)

    I am a TPT member/seller and I didn't know anything about the meet up. Can you please put me on the list for the next meet up? I would appreciate it.

    Hi Deborah! The next time we meet up, I'll be sure to include you. Do you follow this blog on Facebook or Instagram? We shared the invite there as well! Let me know if there's a place I can follow you too. Thanks!
