The Event: Utah Blogger Meet Up

So last Friday was the Utah Blogger Meet Up!

I drove Rachel there and it took forever because there was so much construction plus it didn't help that neither of us had driven to Highland before! The meet up was at a cute boutique and bistro, Dear Lizzie! At first it was kind of weird, because I have never met anyone online but then once everyone got comfortable we had a blast. There was only 2 hours and over 20 bloggers in attendance so I am sad to say I wasn't able to chat with everyone. I wish I worked it a little bit more so I could have gotten to know everyone better! And of course, once I got there, and there were no huge men creepers I texted my hubby that "It is all good :)" So funny...
Party planners minus Ashley W. who got sick right before...poor girl :(

We had a few raffles so we handed out awesome giveaway items from our sponsors as well as little envelopes with fun coupons and such for everyone in attendance.

Afterwards, some girls still wanted to hangout! So I went to my wedding reception and then met back up with them all at Kneaders! I walked in and they were all loud and having hilarious conversations so it was a fun way to end the evening!

 What fun girls! I truly had a blast and wish that I had gotten to know them earlier when I was living in Utah. There is no way I would have though...I was so intense in my schoolwork at BYU and not blogging very often. Oh well :) I guess that is life.

Thank you ladies for coming to our blogger meet up :) I'd say it was a success!

  1. Oh my goodness, that looks like a perfectly marvelous time! and that boutique looks like somewhere I could spend the rest of my life! :) Wish I lived in Utah, but alas... Pennsylvania doesn't quite reach the "near it" zone. :) Have a great day!

  3. That looks so fun!! I love all the Utah bloggers- wish I could have come. Unfortunately, St. Louis is a little far to be considered a "Utah blogger" ;)
