HLS13–Day 2

Becky and I were up bright and early to get in a long run before the conference. She was an excellent route guide and running partner.


7.5 miles done!


After some Caribou and breakfast. . .


it was time for my panel: Blogs in Transition. . . with Alicia and Marissa, and Melanie, who did our introduction!!


It went really well!! I am working on the full recap so if you were there and missed something, or you weren’t able to be there –> you can still get all the details. Smile 

Afterwards, I attended a few more sessions. Got to meet Lauren –> who works for KIND bar!!


Meanwhile, Luke was having a fabulous time at the lake with the grandparents and Aunt Laura and Aunt Jenny. . .


After an awesome lunch (the food was fabulous!), I spent some time hanging out with Kim –> so sweet in person,  just like her blog!!


And totally random, but you know you are in a nice hotel when they have salt scrubs in the bathroom!! Fancy!


Then, we went on a long walk around the city. . .


And afterwards, it was getting towards the end of the day and the vendors were cleaning up. . . and Driscoll’s had so much fruit leftover! Since Melanie and I are both local, we offered to help them out. And OMG, we got so much! Strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries. Thank you so much Driscoll’s and Laura!!


After the end of the conference, we just hung out. . . and then decided that we were having so much fun just hanging out that we would just stay in for the night. So we walked around the block and picked up some drinks, Chipotle and had a girls night in. . .


I finished off my evening with one of Becky’s homemade peanut butter cups. So. good. drooling over this picture right now. . . thank goodness Becky makes them super easy to make.


Day 3 recap coming tomorrow!! Smile

  8. I have never been in a hotel with a salt scrub before! Shows how much I get to those high end hotels. Looks like you had a lot of fun and you were far to kind to help them out with disposing of the fruit 😉

      I am glad you liked the session! And I didn’t mean to make it sound like I was making fun of you, I felt bad that I hadn’t even considered putting a list together for Blogger – so I felt bad!! And I was serious that you should do a post to help out other bloggers who use Blogger too!! It was nice to meet you. 🙂

      • Oh it’s okay…it was a fun talking point afterwards and actually a couple of ladies came up to me and said they use Blogger too! I should do a post on that! Adding it to the to-do list! 🙂
        Great to meet you too! Hopefully we can make time to do a meet-up of bloggers in the area sometime! There were quite a few at HLS!

          That would be awesome to meet up. .. I am glad that you were able to bring up the Blogger point. And you should do a post on it – it sounds like it is needed!!
