Ohio Bloggers Wanted, Snapshots, and Linky Party HELP with WINNERS!

I was so bummed when I found out our Vegas Vacation was 2 weeks before the 2013 Vegas Blogger meet up! I would have LOVED to meet all of these wonderful bloggers that I read and share with! When I got an email from Britney over at Tailor Made Teaching expressing interest to do an Ohio blogger meet up, I was so excited! 
So, shout out to all of you Ohio bloggers... let's get together!!! :) We haven't picked a date yet, but we'd like to get a big email group going to figure out a good date, time, and place for all of us to meet up! Britney and I are in the North to Northeastern Ohio area, but we want all bloggers from Ohio to participate so we can find a central meeting place! I don't mind driving a little to meet all of you wonderful teachers :) Send me an email at mrscap6(at)gmail(dot)com and let me know you're interested so I can add you to the group.

Yay!! I am all giddy and excited just thinking about it! Also, please share this button on your blog, instagram, Facebook, etc to get the word out!! :)

Next, I'm linking up my favorite photos of the week with Run! Miss Nelson's Got the Camera for her amazing Saturday Snapshots linky!


{I was ECSTATIC when I saw this on my porch yesterday! For those of you that follow me on Instagram, you know I love to run! After getting a hairline fracture in the side of my foot 5 weeks ago, my doctor said I had to invest in new running shoes. Of course, I have no problem with shopping!! :) I can't wait to put some miles on these puppies!}

{Aren't they puuuurty?!?}
{One of my closest girlfriends, Caity, and I finally got the chance to do some major classroom shopping! We got SO many phenomenal deals! Make sure you follow my Instagram where I post classroom finds and deals! I can't wait for us to craft it all up and use it!}


{Crates and wood for crate seats, cute ribbon, fabric, and poms from Target and Hobby Lobby! Hobby Lobby has 50% off of ribbon this week and lots of fabric on sale!}

{More fabric, canvases, pillow covers and frames! The pillow covers were only $3.99 from Hobby Lobby and we plan to use old pillows for some, and stuff the others with polyfill!}

{Letters for "READ" sign in my classroom and more 50% off ribbon!}

{AWESOME nonfiction leveled finds at Target $1 spot! Presidents book, 50 states book, Sharks, Wolves, and historical documents!}

{Frames for $1.99 at Michaels! We plan to paint them at put subway art in them! Our FAVORITE find was these amazing metal bins from Michaels for only $4.50 They are the perfect size for clipboards and  dry erase boards, and they are so much more sturdy than my current plastic bins! YAY! }
{.49 cent Scentos highlights, markers, erasers and dry erase markers at Michaels... YES PLEASE! }
{My adorable friend working on our crate seats! I will reveal the finished products on Monday!! Isn't she the cutest?!}
{Thursday hubs and I headed to Pittsburgh to see Jimmy Buffett in concert! We have ALWAYS wanted to see him and were so excited! He didn't disappoint. It was an unbelievable performance! We will definitely be going again next year!!}
{The Wives! Love these girls.. we had a blast :)}

{Our seats were amazing! We were right in the thick of the action and I loved being under the Pavilion.  *Sidenote: One of the girls shared a 20 signs your close to thirty article that said one of them was you no longer purchase lawn seats at a concert! HAHA... well, I'm not THAT close to 30, but I don't care.. I'll take these amazing seats over being soaked by rain and hot in the lawn!:) }
{We stayed the night in Pittsburgh and did some sight seeing and exploring the next day. We had breakfast at Deluccas (featured on Man Vs. Food), went to the Duquesne lift, and checked out the Rivers Casino! Such a great day! }

How was your week? I'd love to hear about it!

Thank you for reading this far. The last thing I wanted was to ask for some linky party help! I have always wanted to host my own, but I have felt anything I did would be seriously inadequate to the amazing Farley, 4th Grade Frolics, Fourth Grade Flipper, Doodlebugs Teaching, Collaboration Cuties, and all of you other amazing bloggers!

Well, I have had an idea for a linky party for a while, but I would love all of your input! I want to do a bloggy type KWL. I would pick a topic each week, and using a cute KWL template, bloggers would link up with what they know about the topic (what they currently do) what they want to know more about (bloggers could comment with ideas and suggestions) and then what they've learned from other bloggers or research.

I need a cute name for this linky party.. and that's where I'm enlisting you all! I am taking suggestions for names.. and the person whose name I choose will win 5 free products of their choice from my TPT store!!!

I am also open to doing this linky party with another blogger as a joint linky party, so if you're interested, comment! Make sure you leave your email in your comment :)

Thanks for reading! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!

  4. Off the top of my head, how about 'KWL on WWTL'? Maybe with your cleverness you could make a graphic where the W or L overlaps in both parts?

    I am impressed with anyone who can run more than a block...that's about my limit! You go, girl!
