Minnesota Nice Blogger Get Together & A New Design For My Blog

Last night was the Minnesota Nice blogger get together.  9 of us met up at Brit's Pub in Minneapolis to meet each other.  It was so fun finally putting faces with names.  

These are the ladies that were able to make it...

It was such a fun/hot night!  LuAnn and Amber gave us each a cute flower for greeting our kids on the first day of school. It had a really cute poem attached to it.  Thanks so much ladies!!!

I was excited at the end of the night to find that my car WAS still in Valet Parking!  I was so frazzled trying to park in the "big city". I absolutely hate driving and didn't get my driver's license until about a week before student teaching. I avoid driving in the city as much as I can.  Last night after I circled Brit's 3 times, I saw a Valet Parking sign. I pulled my car up to it and gave him my key.  BOY am I trusting.  Thinking about it later, he could have easily been a random guy with a sign. LOL!  My car was PACKED full with all my teaching bins.  I was embarrassed but you do what you gotta do!

It was a great night and I am excited to get together with these fun ladies again! :)  We are going to be doing a give-away with some other more bloggers that were not able to make it.   Watch for that soon!

Finally, I changed the look of my blog today?  What do you think?  Do you have suggestions for me? Does anyone have tips on how to make a blog button? I had help with the last one and can't figure it out again.

Enjoy your weekend!
