SNAP! Conference. There is so much to tell you…

Contrary to what some of my non-blogger friends (I call them civilians) think, a blog conference is not like a Star Trek Convention.  I am so fortunate as to have attended The SNAP! Conference in Salt Lake City over the weekend.  I will do a full wrap up soon, but let me just say that it was AWESOME!

I got to hang out with my good friend and SoCal Social partner, the fabulous Beverly from Flamingo Toes

I got to meet online friends in person…

L-R Amy from Mod Podge Rocks, Alexa from I Love To Create, Heidi from Honeybear Lane,
Jennifer  from Always In Wonder, Kristina from Pearl Gateway
I have “known” Jen from Tatertots & Jello for about 4 years but this is the first opportunity we’ve had
to meet each other in person. Love her!

I heard fabulous speakers on a variety of different subjects, including Centsational Girl, Kate Riley…

Oh, and eat great food, learn new ideas, try new crafts and products, and all in all, hang out with other bloggers who “get” me.

Also very cool?  I met up with Xazmin who writes This Is The Year and lives in Salt Lake City.  She welcomed me into her home to meet her gorgeous family and took me on a tour of Temple Square in downtown Salt Lake.

A great weekend!  Posts about the conference will be up soon.

Blogging or otherwise, have you ever gone to a conference?

The picture of you and Xazmin just melts my heart!! I love you both!! I must meet her in person one day!! Love that you got to meet Jen from Tatertots and Jello!!! That's awesome. Love her! Sounds like a fabulous conference. You're right, civilians just don't get it.

Did I use enough exclamation points? Can you tell my level of excitement?

Mission accomplished.

I followed all of your pictures on Instagram and I'm not ashamed to tell you that I was very jealous! Looks like you had a great time, I can't wait to hear all about it in just EIGHT days!

Man alive, there was too little time at that conf, I swear!! It was good to meet you, Viv! If only briefly.

ps: You complimenting me when we hugged meant so much to me, funny how a simple remark can make you smile for days afterward :)
