Blog Sugar 2011

I had the wonderful opportunity to attend blog sugar this past weekend.
Thank you to the surfer guy for making this trip possible for me!

First we went to blackboard bistro on the PCH for lunch.
Then we took a quick group WIWW photo op. The car made a good tripod.
I had so much fun driving with Erika of Rouge & Whimsy from San Diego. She is a hoot!

Maggie and me (Yay!!!)
She is as sweet as she looks. A good, true friend.

Swag bags!

lot's of awesome peeps!

We had men who would open our door, beautiful decor, and real true learning at the core. 

my notes and our agenda

and tasty treats were around every corner!

cotton candy... yes please!

I listened to Maggie on Social Networking, Lindsey on the Juggling Act, and Jen Johnson on photography - Wonderful tips and help; I was writing notes as fast as I could!

Meg Duerkson was the keynote speaker. She made me laugh, she made me cry, she made me realize a lot that night. Thank you for sharing Meg! You are incredible!

We were taken care of and pampered. Thank you to Rachel, Andrea, and Jen for creating such a treat!

Until next year :)
