Well, the SNAP conference came and went, and it was a blast! There were so many lovely bloggers there to chat with-and I learned a lot in the classes I went to. There were a couple I missed, and am hoping they post recaps of the classes online somewhere.
I wish I’d taken more pictures! I lugged my Rebel around but barely took it out. So most of them are from my iphone/instagram.
Kate and I were conference buddies-we’re both kind of quiet and shy so we knew we’d hit it off right away! And we soo did-there were many times when we turned to each other and were like “ha! we’re exactly the same!” I am so glad she was there and that we could get to know each other better. We even ditched a class to see the new Zac Efron movie and had slurpees…such rebels, I know. It was so nice to be able to talk blog stuff with her…it’s not something I can do with most people…mainly Rory when I get desperate!

Don’t you love how we all color-coordinated so well? lol! This group of ladies is a-ma-zing. We had such a blast together! Kate and I didn’t stay at the hotel but we heard the rest of them had a few late nights….which sounded super fun but I’m not the kind of person who can do less than like 8 hours of sleep a night. Kristen was sweet enough to take head shots for whoever wanted them and I can’t wait to see mine! She is so talented! When I grow up I want to take pictures like her. Heidi is a ball of energy and it was so fun to be around her! Kirstin is SO sweet! I walked into the first class of the conference and saw her-I didn’t know she was coming so it was an awesome surprise! It was so fun to talk party planning/blog stuff with her and she is so thoughtful and even grabbed some treats for Charlotte’s cowgirl party I’m planning! You’ll have to wait to see what they were…
For lunch each day we got a cute boxed up lunch with a sandwich, apple, chips, massive chocolate chip cookie, and lollipop or caramel, plus a drink. YUM.
First class of the conference-SEO…long but informative. I also sat next to Brooke from The Crafting Chicks. She is SO nice! I also met my pal Gwen from Gwenny Penny but we didn’t get a picture together!
Officially at SNAP!
The Snapette team-they were all amazing and I was a little star struck with some of them…too shy to introduce myself even. lame, I know!
Forgot my lanyard the second day!
They gave us these hole punches and rings for business cards. Smart!
The Queen Bee handmade market was awesome!
The meals were scrumptious! We never remembered to take a pic until we had already scarfed it down. My favorite part-a mozzarella/tomato/onion salad. YUM.
They had a dance the last night which looked like fun, but I wasn’t feeling the greatest that night so I skipped out. I did tap my foot for a few minutes, does that count? lol
There was so much work and love put into this conference and I think we all had an amazing time!
