The Indiana Blogger Meet-Up was a B-L-A-S-T!

Today was so much fun! I got together with 14 amazing Indiana  bloggers! I came in a little late and as soon as I came through the door, one of the waiters just pointed to the back room. Is it that obvious that I'm a teacher????

It was so awesome to put names with faces and bloggy buttons! We talked and talked and talked for about 4 1/2 hours! We even had to ask for more water . . . our throats got dry from all the chatter! Here's a phone pic of all of us.

Heather at Teaching Through Turbulence has tons more pics than me . . . and I actually stole this one from her blog! hehehehe 

I learned about some new apps while I was there too. You have to download this app called Aurasma! It is so cool! Have you downloaded it yet? How about now? 

  • Okay, now that you have it downloaded . . .
  •  open the app
  •  then touch the little square at the bottom of the screen
  • hold your phone over my little rockin' kids at the top of my blog on your computer screen
  • You will see and hear a quick little message from me!  

I have so many ideas for this cool little gadget! 

I got more ideas today that I am going to check out as well. I'll let you know when I get them all figured out! 

It's amazing what happens when you get a bunch of teachers, especially teacher bloggers, all together in one place! Can you imagine a school with all of us in one place? ROCKIN'!

We thought it would be fun to have a linky party so you could all check out these awesome bloggers! If you are an Indiana blogger, be sure to link up too! Next time we get together, we will have twice as many people there!

P. S. Only 1 1/2 days until we head off to Vegas! I'm getting a little nervous about my itty bitty presentation. Hey, it's big for me, right!? Maybe if you guys send up some 'Go Hilary's!' on Monday, it will help me out! Oh, and guess what I just found out! Amy from TpT is going to be at our Vegas blogger meet up! Ummmm, maybe you should head over to Vegas! I don't think it's too late to book a flight! Sign up {here} if you can make it!

TTFN friends!



  1. Hey Hilary, I wasn't able to attend but we are from Indiana so I linked up. I thought that is what your blog said--if not, just let me know and I'll remove it. That is great that today was so successful. Emily and I will look forward to next time. Thanks for the Indiana Linky! Beth from

    1. Absolutely Beth! You will definitely have to come the next time. Thanks for linking up...I'm heading over to check out your blog now!

  2. Hi Hilary!
    I am an Indiana teacher also--so I linked up. Sounds like a great get-together. I am still pretty new at blogging, but would love to meet other Indiana bloggers.

  3. Hilary - Just wanted to say how great it was to meet you! You were so very helpful, even though I wasn't there the whole time! I'm trying to figure out the app, and I downloaded it, but I can't figure out how to get your message. Wish I would have been there for that one. Enjoy the rest of your summer!

    I was so excited to meet you! I am really jealous that I am not in Vegas as well! Have fun! I can't wait for the next Indiana Blogger Meet-up!
