ready or not...
i found out the night before that i did actually have friends going. it made the conference so much more fun.
sandy, jacque, me, kelly
the conference included main sessions in the morning and break outs throughout the day. i learned a lot about my social media strategy and realized i need to up my game with pinterest and facebook.
kelly, jacque, and i had dinner at nordstrom before heading back to talk to brands. i made a few connections, and i'm excited to hopefully have a few new partnerships. after the networking session, we hung out in the lobby talking and laughing for a few hours. we ran into a few friends. i loved attending the sessions and learning, but the time with friends was my favorite part.
we attended the first break out session in the morning before it was time for the girls to check out of the hotel. when they went to put the stuff in the car, jacque had a flat tire. we got that taken care of but ended up missing most of the afternoon. i'm excited to watch the videos they made of the conference.
we got back in time to get dressed for the evening and take some pictures.

the conference ended with a dinner gala
jacque and i met in the bathroom of bright night last summer, and we became instant friends. i was so happy when i found out she was attending the conference. even though i wasn't as prepared as i should have been, spending the weekend with friends made it a great weekend.

after it was over, sandy and sarah took us to a delicious pho place. i was definitely hesitant about going, but the food was amazing.
as nervous as i was about attending, build your blog was a definite success. now to implement the things i learned...
