SoCal Blogger Meetup

I had such a wonderful weekend! Being a mom, an opportunity to get out and enjoy time with other ladies is wonderful. Enjoying time with 60+ bloggers is downright awesome! My dear blogging buddy, Stephanie from Mrs. Stephanie T, who was also one of the incredible hosts who put all this together, tweeted me a while back telling me about the blogger meetup. I wasn't able to attend the first one but was thrilled to be able to attend this one. Hospitable Roppongi in La Jolla was the vendor chosen to host the event. I'm not a sushi fan myself, but I was way impressed with the presentation of the food and the excellent customer service provided by their staff.


The ladies set up a little corner where we could take photos using a polaroid frame. This is just a taste of how cool our hostesses are.
Three of our animated hostesses. Love these ladies!

60+ bloggers attended and get this, there was even a waiting list! I was so happy I registered when I did!
We played games...

A cute little valentines theme candy table was set up for our enjoyment.
I actually won prizes! Earrings were courtesy of Moorea Seal Jewelry.
Dove Chocolates were courtesy of Independent Dove Chocolate Discoveries Chocolate Chocolatier, Allison Almond. (949-278-3896 or allisonalmond@gmail.com)
Some cool note cards from Orange and Park...
and cupcake in a jar from Stay Calm Cupcake Shop...
then we were even sent home with an awesome swag bag with tons of coupons and treats from a long list of sponsors.
Fab job, ladies! Can't wait for the next one!
