Blogger Meet Up

Thank you to Blonde Bedhead for this photo!

I had a great long weekend. One of the many highlights was attending the Midwest Blogger Meet Up. I met a handful of lovely ladies and I can’t wait to hang out with them again (Andrea from Blonde Bedhead, Tieka from Selective Potential and Toni from Fashion Butter among many others). It was a great event thanks to Suze from Miss Vinyl Ahoy and her sister Cher from Shoe-a-day. It was like a breath of fresh air to meet young women who share the same interests that I do. We talked about everything from awkward photo shoots, blog post ideas and our favorite bloggers. Since the weather was perfect, Brian and I explored our neighborhood of Lakeview with the dogs and found a delicious bakery ( I am sure knowing this is so close will be dangerous because the small amount of pastries that we pick up were delicious, you may find me there every weekend). We also slept in, watched movies and indulged in things like the pastries (mentioned above), homemade sangria and Gnocchi with a to-die-for spicy vodka sauce. I can say I am rejuvenated and ready to take on the busy work week…or maybe what I really think…weekends like this make it hard to go back to reality. Either way, life is good and I hope everyone had a weekend that was exactly what you needed.

P.S. Guess what? I won the raffle at the meet up. Thank you Spotted Moth for a lovely new bag (notice the white edgy bag in the photos). I never win anything, so I was so taken back and completely thrilled.

  5. So it was YOU with the fabulous heels! I spotted those in the shoe shot about the meetup and have been wandering who was wearing them! LOVE.

    So awesome. It looks like (from all your posts) that it was a totally fabulous time! I’m bummed i had to bail at the last minute. You looked fan-freakin’-tastic, too. I love those heels!
