Blog Sugar '11.

Last night I attended Blog Sugar.
It was fantastic and oh so sweet!
From the decor to the food to the speakers, it was all fabulous.

When I first heard about Blog Sugar I was hesitant to go, so I asked my sister to go with me.
I'm not super outgoing and I knew if I had a friend with me I'd be more comfortable.
As I was getting ready, trying to decide what to wear and how to do my hair, I began to get nervous.
I was going to be meeting some serious bloggers, that are seriously awesome. 
My insecurities started to set in.
My blog is not big and fancy, I don't have an etsy shop, my pictures are not fantastic and my writing doesn't dive deep.
I felt that I was going to be a tiny fish in a huge pond.
But I was wrong.
Now that doesn't mean I wasn't a tiny star-stuck, (blog-struck?) when I met
I mean, they're pretty great, right? 
And I'm pretty sure I looked like a big dork talking to them. Fantastic.

Anyway, as I walked into the courtyard all my nervousness and insecure thoughts vanished. 
I was there and I wanted to have a good time.
I needed to make the most out of being there and I did.

I met a ton of fabulous ladies and I can not wait to learn more about them through their blogs.
I was inspired by the speakers.
I was encouraged to write and tell more.
I was challenged to do more personally and with my blog.

I walked away feeling welcomed, happy, and warm.
Thanks for an amazing night! 
When can we do this again?

You? A dork? Please. I'm a HUGE dork in real life and always manage to place myself in embarrassing situations (hello, chairs). I cringe when people recognize me unexpectedly. I'm not good at hiding the dork on the fly and don't want to disappoint. I need time to tone down my personality!

You, on the other hand, were beautiful and delightful.

I'm so glad you and Erin enjoyed Blog Sugar! I was so sad that I was in California but had to miss it due to work! Maybe next year? And yes, I've been friends with Erika for years.....something makes me think her husband works with your dad?
