I hope everyone had a safe and relaxing three day weekend! Nick was gone Friday through half of Sunday at his brother’s bachelor party (they went camping and jet skiing). It was just me and Link at home! Friday we worked on website stuff, Saturday I went to brunch and shopping with one of my best friends and my sister.
Sunday night, after Nick got home, we held a fantasy football draft party. I am definitely not a big fan of football, at all. But the gin & tonics, chips and guac, and mini croissant doggies made up for it. Our day off on Monday was spent camera shopping, which was successful! :)
“My attendance at the Blog Brûlée is/was partially funded by Sponsors of the Blog Brûlée, and I received a discounted registration to the event in exchange for writing this post. Opinions expressed are my own. I was not compensated for my time.”
This week will be very nice, because I only have to go to work for three days. On Friday, I’m flying out to Vermont for the second annual Blog Brulee! I’m honored to have been invited among a group of other bloggers that I really look up to.
Blog Brûlée is an invitation-only, exciting, experiential weekend shared among a small, intimate number of healthy food bloggers and Registered Dietitian bloggers. The event is designed to provide education and professional development opportunities, as well as a forum for discussion and relationship building surrounding topics such as blogging and social media best practices, fundamentals of food photography, communication and marketing strategies, community niche development, brand identity and monetization.
The conference was founded by Regan Jones, RD, Gretchen Brown, RD, Deanna Segrave-Daly, RD, and Robin Plotkin, RD. I was able to meet Deanna at the almond conference a couple weeks ago, and I’ve met Robin a couple times because she’s also from Dallas.
I’m super excited for the speakers, which include Sally Kuzemchak, MS, RD, Anne Mauney, MPH, RD, Katy Widrick, Katie Webster, Lindsay Livingston, RD, Kylie Mitchell (who I also met at the almond conference!) and Lisa D’Agrosa, M.S., R.D.
The event is sponsored by the wonderful people at Siggi’s, Smuggler’s Notch (where we’ll be staying!), Davidson’s Safest Choice Eggs, the Almond Board of California, and California Ripe Olives.
I plan on posting a recap post next week when I get back, so be sure to check back then!
