It’s my Friday, baby! This time tomorrow I’ll be at the Frito Lay demonstration at the Healthy Living Summit! I’m pretty stoked to play around with potato chip flavors with Frito Lay chefs! 🙂 As you can tell, I’m pumped for the conference, but NOT pumped that I have to wake up at 4:30 am, aka a** crack early, to make the first metro into the city. Although I can’t complain because at least I’m not flying. AND, I am riding in with another awesome DC blogger, Katie from What Katie Said, which will hopefully take my mind off the fact that the sun isn’t even up and I’m traveling. Either way, it’s my first real life blogging conference and I’m so nervous/thrilled!
Speaking of first times (I don’t mean THAT first time), I had my first blogger meet up last night with some of the most fabulous ladies EVER. All of these photos are from Gretchen, because she brought her camera (smart woman, she is!) It was just so nice to connect with people you have something in common with, to talk about blogs without blank stares or judgemental comments. I love my friends, truly love them, but some of them just don’t care about my blogs. They don’t care how I get traffic or what I ate on Wednesday, and that’s FINE! They know me without my blog. But now, as I grow these little babies of mine and work to make them ONE big site, blogging has become a big part of who I am and it’s just so nice to have people who get it and get me!
We went to the Front Page in Dupont, which is one of my favorite places! The happy hour wine was $2.75, which is UNREAL, so of course I dabbled in a few glasses. It was just SO MUCH FUN, honestly, to connect with other people who love what you love and do what you do!
Gretchen is such a trendy little trendsetter with the camera and snapped this photo of me. Normally, I hate photos (I know, vain ol’ me hate photographs) but I just don’t feel like I look good in them. Well, I actually really like this one so thank you Gretchen! A, for the action shot and B, for being creepy enough to do it 🙂
I’m pumped to experience a whole new level of “blogger meetups” this weekend and hope to make some incredible connections! Before I go, I have to shamelessly show off the AMAZING buisness cards one of my besties made for me.
