It's July? My goodness, the summer is going so fast. I'm linking up with Farley over at Oh Boy 4th Grade for my second July Currently. Thanks for hosting, Farley!
Loving: I'm am absolutely loving the idea of being in Las Vegas for my very first TpT Conference next week! Back in March, I decided to venture out and learn from the best TpT *teacherprenuers* out there.
At the time I registered, I didn't know anyone attending the conference. Since the week of the conference will be my 7th wedding anniversary, my hubby decided to go to Vegas with me to support my teacher endeavors, while extending the stay for a mini anniversary vacation. Woohoo! However, after a fun Chicago Blogger Meet Up this past weekend, I'll be meeting up with a small group of new friends at the Venetian. I can't wait!
Thinking: I can't believe it's been a year since I started up Literacy Loving Gals! Today is my 1 year blog anniversary. Shall I say, Blogiversary? Last year, on July 1st, I attended a blogging PD hosted by Michelle over at BigTime Literacy. During the PD, I linked up for the very first time with Farley for July Currently. I also began Michelle's BigTime Blogging Challenge, which she just started again today! I've learned so much from those in the social media world and have met some very talented people through blogging. I'm glad I took the step to attend the PD and enter the Blogosphere!
Needing: Ugh, I'm needing to pack, but I have no idea what to put in my luggage. My friend is in Las Vegas right now and warns me the weather is in the hundreds even in the middle of the night. Yeowza! However, every restaurant or indoor area is freezing cold because of the air condition. I guess I'll just pack some sundresses, swimsuits and sweaters! ;)
All Star: I'm an All-Star addict... of learning, that is. I love seeking out new strategies and techniques to make me a better qualified Reading Specialist. I can't help myself. Perusing blogs, attending conferences, reading and retweeting articles on Twitter, etc. is nearly a constant in my life. I am currently reading Jennifer Serravallo's The Reading Strategies Book and will be hosting a Book Study with the #ReadingStrategiesCrew. It starts August 3rd right here on Literacy Loving Gals!
Anyway, I swore to my husband, I'd take time to relax and let loose a little for our anniversary spent in Las Vegas. He really wants to go to visit the Pawn Stars shop. Of course, on my vacation I'll still be learning at the TpT conference (because I'm an addict of learning). I guess I'll be getting the best of both worlds. :)
