I Love a Good Blog Meet-up!

Alycia, Me, Kelsey, Diana

My favorite part of blogging is meeting people and making new friends.  There are a lot of blogging friends that I haven't had the opportunity to meet in real life, but it sure is fun when I get the chance to see familiar bloggers up close and personal!  Last weekend I was able to attend two awesome events: a Passionfruit Ads mixer and Gentri Lee's Blogger Beauty Night Out. 

Please excuse this horrible picture of me.

It was so great to meet the incredible Mr. Passionfruit in person.  Jason is so creative, smart and talented!  The Passionfruit mixer was super fun and I'm so glad I was able to go.  It also helped that there was an abundance of Diet Coke and a chocolate fountain...now that's my kind of party!

Kelsey Bang and my sister-in-law Kathy

My sister-in law, Kathy, was nice enough to join me and I'm so happy she did.  Kathy is super fun and outgoing...everyone kept telling her that she needed to start a blog (and I agree). 

Next up was the Blogger's Beauty Night Out, hosted by my sweet blog friend Gentri.   She is starting her career as an esthetician, so she invited us to come check out A La Mode Salon (located in Draper, UT).  There were makeovers, treats, prizes (I won a cute pair of Cheerfully Charmed earrings!) and of course lots of mingling!

Prizes from Cheerfully Charmed, (kno)name, Perfectly Posh, and Pixie Pie Jewelry

It was such a fun night and I can't wait to meet up with these beautiful ladies again!

  7. I'm so glad you made it!! I didn't know she was your SIL. I didn't even have time to ask. I felt so bad, I thought she was Diana's friend (for some reason) and apologized to Diana! haha! So, tell her so sorry I wasn't a great hostess and thank her for coming!
