first off… let me start by saying… rebecca (my co-host) does rad picture an hour posts… i totally stole this idea. now that my disclaimer is out of the way… i want to say how excited i was on friday… to meet everyone, to have a great event… to do our sponsors proud and show them that a blog event is grassroots marketing. and what better way to show my excitement than to go to work and wander around taking pictures… i kid. but i was at work for a lot of this day (something has to support my lavish blogger ways!- that’s a joke, i’m lacking in the lavish gene) and when i finally got to leave work… it was lots of last minute running around, comfort crisis (i for some reason had zero impetus to dress up) and then a mad dash to get it all together before bloggers started walking in… i thought it went off well, but it could NOT have happened without-
amazing friends who pitched in last minute- served and checked- i owe you major, and i know it.
boconcept– great space!! what’s a party without an amazing space to mingle, mix and relax?
mike’s hard lemonade– thanks for trying out your product with us! can’t wait for your tweetup!
trophy cupcakes– are you kidding me? a 3 week no bread streak was broken. it was worth it.
dry soda– my new soft drink of choice, and the best non-alcoholic beverage! special sparkly.
qdoba– i loved seeing people at the party eating tacos. it was perfect.
hazel salon– the ladies from hazel offered gift cards and samples. thank you!
tigerbeat– great tunes make for a great scene. i love this boy’s mixes.
gems– offered jelly bellies to our party-goers… sweet!
moo cards– i have a promo code for moo if you want free cards… drop me a line.

and finally… all the amazing bloggers who attended. it was great to meet in person, it was great to hear you enjoyed yourself, and it was worth all the work of putting together a night that was so thoroughly enjoyed. we’ll have to do it all again! xoxo- n+t
